Breaking news! As of February 2015, Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation is now my new HG foundation! I am SUPER excited to tell you about this amazing foundation that I wished I had tried earlier! While I was at the counter with Cheo at Macy’s getting colored match, I also ended up picking up 2 other items from Estee Lauder.
First thing first, Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation claims to have a 15 hour wear time though humidity, heat, and non stop activity. It also claims that it will not smudge onto clothes and will not change color. I will have to say, this foundation lives up mostly to these claims!
Seriously, I am LOVING this foundation. This is a medium coverage foundation, but honestly I might even call it medium to full because it covered my acne spots just fine with two layers. The consistency is not too thin and not too thick. It feels light on and actually dries matte. Igot the shade 3W1 Tawny which is the PERFECT shade match for me. I really think this is the foundation that really is a PERFECT match to my skin tone. Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation did stay on for 15 hours plus on my oily skin and didn’t oxidize at all! Since I have REALLY oily skin I do expect to NEVER blot throughout the day. That is just a fantasy for me. With this foundation I was matte for almost the whole day, the only area that needed a blot was my nose. I was impressed that the makeup did not smudge AS MUCH on clothing as my other foundations have. I usually don’t purposely rub clothing on my face but I have occasionally left an embarrassing makeup stain after hugging my boyfriend. I noticed that with this foundation not as much foundation comes off and it only comes off on clothing if its near the end of day when my oils are peeking through.
This is the color 3W1 Tawny below. It doesn’t look like a match but once its blended in, its PERFECT!
In addition to the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation I also picked up the Estee Lauder Brush-On Glow BB Highlighter in the shade 3/4 W Medium. This acts as a concealer and highlighter. I put this under my eyes as well as over any dark spots I can still see after my foundation. I really like this under my eye because it doesn’t crease up and brightens it up! This is a great compliment to the foundation!
I also ended up picking up Estee Lauder Lipstick in Insatiable Ivory. This is a really great MLBB (my lips but better) color! Its very nice and creamy and doesn’t dry out my lips. Staying power is okay but I would not say it is long lasting. This is my first full sized Estee Lauder lipstick and I really like how the tube is closed magnetically!
Have you tried any of these items before? Which ones? I HIGHLY recommend the Stay in Place Foundation if you are looking for a foundation that will stay on all day!
