Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Make Up

I’m always searching for the perfect foundation and looking for new brands to try. There was a lot of hype around this foundation when it was first released and it sounded right up my street, but for the longest time I never got around to trying it. The 'double' description really put me off at first, it brought me to the assumption that the finish would be too heavy and look unnatural on my skin. I'm more of a fan of foundations that offer light to medium coverage, but after reading several reviews praising it for it's light weight, flawless finish, I changed my mind and decided to pick up a bottle. 

Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Make Up (£28.50) is a long wearing foundation that offers medium to full coverage that looks natural and stays fresh all day. I've tried many foundations that claim they are long lasting, but they always seem to sit on top of my skin and look cakey rather than blending in to create a natural finish, so I was pleasantly surprised. It's one of the only foundations that I've ever come across that lasts so well on my skin, I don't have to top up my make up as often when I'm wearing this, all I need is touch of powder on my t-zone as my skin is a little on the oily side. 

This is my ideal finish from a foundation - it's light so feels comfortable on the skin, and creates an almost matte,flawless complexion. I am so impressed with the coverage too, I normally need to use concealer under my eyes and around my nose to hide any redness, but this conceals imperfections like a dream! I use my Real Techniques Buffing Brush to apply, the formula of this foundation makes it really easy to blend and makes skin look really lovely. The formula is also oil free and non-comedogenic too so it won't clog your pores. 

I'm so impressed with this foundation, it's perfect in every way! If you are looking for something that will create a beautiful, natural finish that lasts all day, this ones for you. Just ignore the eye watering price tag....

Have you tried this?


  1. I absolutely love this foundation! I've just received it and I can't wait to start using it again (I've been using the sample for the past 10 days!)
    It's everything you want from a foundation - and my skin is a bit like yours, a little oily down the t-zone, but the staying power of this foundation is amazing!

  2. I absolutely love this foundation! My favourite for when I want to have a little extra coverage x

  3. I've wanted to try this for so long but the price has always put me off, I need to treat myself to this now it sounds perfect for me :)


  4. I haven't tried this before because the price tag scares me off but I'm definitely tempted to give it a go. I may go ask for a sample of this foundation next time I stop by a Estee Lauder counter just to see how I like it first. xx
