The Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-place Makeup is a foundation I truly love. I know this is a popular choice but it really deserves the hype. If you want a flawless appearance, this foundation might just be the one you need because it provides a heavy coverage that covers many skin flaws. Oh, that was something I wasn't too keen on while I was reading reviews online, I thought this would feel so heavy on the skin but this foundation is lighter than what I expected. It's comfortable to wear and not cakey. I remember using Revlon's Colourstay foundation in the past and it was a lot heavier. This foundation covers acne scars, pores and even dark circles around the eyes.
Another thing that makes this foundation fabulous is the longevity. It lasts all day and it can withstand heat, humidity or sweat. I brought this foundation with me when I went to Europe. It solved the problem of not having to do any retouch throughout the day because it stays in tact. There's no need to set this foundation with powder because it's really matte and it stays just as good after many hours of wearing it. At the moment, I have a normal skin type and just a little oily around the t-zone area. It doesn't dry out my face but I wouldn't recommend this to people who have "dry skin", this would be better for people who have normal to oily skin.
They have a pretty good range of shades for this foundation, you'll have plenty of choice. I'm in the shade 1W2 (lighter shade) in the colder months and 2W1 (darker shade) in the summer. This foundation doesn't change colour or oxidize.
This is really one of the best foundations I've ever tried. It's just full of awesomeness! There are only few things I can complain about this foundation, the packaging is not very practical because it doesn't have a pump and the price $45 CAD is a little hefty! What's your current favourite foundation?
