The other day I realised I had a CCO store near me, where they sell discounted high end make up products. I therefore decided that my next foundation would be a high end one! I went in with a medium coverage coverage in mind, however, the only foundation which they had in stock that matched my skin was the very heavy sounding Estee Lauder Double wear, however I took it home with me (probably due to the £19 price tag when it retails for £28.50, can't resist a discount!)
First impressions; this is a seriously thick foundation, like double concentrate squash, you really do
only need just half as much as usual. I place it on the centre of my face and use my hands to really blend it in, though I still need a bit of practice! Once it is on it sets to quite a matte finish and then it really does not budge, it is also covers everything, as you will see at the end of this post. Due to the tiny amount I need I'm sure this bottle will last me a long time and I am very pleased I picked it up. The only downside for me is that it does not have a pump! It is definitely heavier than I am used too, so I still have a BB cream in my arsenal for when double wear is just a bit too much.
And now for what I am sure we have all been waiting for...The before and afters! you really can see the difference the foundation makes on my skin, which has been misbehaving a lot lately! and then you can also see what my finished make up looks like. For the first time I felt like I didn't need concealer, I just tapped in a bit of extra foundation around my nose and under my eyes.
