Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude foundation

Having dry skin I was always a little scared of the Estee Lauder original Double wear so when they dropped the water based Double wear with a thinner texture and a little less coverage I was definitely interested in giving it a go. Now I do have to say in terms of lasting power I was expecting a little more from this foundation. It looks beautiful on the skin upon initial application however I find it very quickly falls into the dry patches on my nose. In terms of coverage I would say it is definitely buildable and after two layers you can build up a good medium to full coverage. The finish is slightly dewy however I think even someone with an oily skin type would be able to manage with the level of dewiness on the face.
Packaging wise I love the bottle but I seriously despise that fact it hasn't got a pump I just don't understand why brands do it but there was no way I was paying a further £5 for a pump. I like the fact that it has the high SPF 30 and feel like it makes it an even more summery product. Overall I don't hate this however it's not one I'm going to be reaching for everyday. I think if you have normal or oily skin though and want something lighter than the original then this would be perfect for you.


  1. I have oily skin so I'll definitely check this out!

  2. I was in shock at how runny this was in store compared to the original! So nice to see a review, and I agree about the pump, what a pain!
