Hello everyone!

It feels like it has been a lifetime since I last published a blog post. When I wrote my last post, I was determined to get back to doing them more often. However, with exams literally taking over my life right now... I've slacked with blogging (sad times)!

A post I've been wanting to write for a while now was inspired by an Estee Lauder campaign that I saw a couple of months back called 'Double Wear or Nothing'. There was an advert, and loads of blogger sponsorships surrounding it. Now, whilst this isn't part of the campaign, it really got me questioning why I have never written a blog post about a product I CANNOT live without- Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation. 

This foundation came into my life shortly after I started working at Boots 4 and a half years ago! Everyone at my work obsessed over double wear, and I had to see what the rage was all about... safe to say I have never gone back! 


What it promises: According to Boots.com : "The UK's No. 1 Foundation. 24-hour staying power. Flawless all day. This worry-free, long-wearing makeup stays fresh and looks natural through heat, humidity and nonstop activity. It feels lightweight and comfortable and won't change colour, smudge or come off on clothes. Now the flawless look you see in the morning is the look you keep all day."

Price: RRP : £33.50- it has gone up a LOT since I first started purchasing it- it used to cost £28! But to me, the product is so good it is worth the money!

Method of application: I used my Real Techniques sponge which I slightly dampened to apply this foundation. I've found this to be my favourite tool to use to apply this foundation as it gives a more flawless finish to a brush, especially when I use the flat end of the sponge!

Coverage: Full 

Consistency: A normal liquid foundation, dries down matte. 

PROS: The pro's outweigh any cons you could find in the foundation, I have been using this for years and I still absolutely adore it. It is full coverage, stays put literally all day... and I always get so many compliments about the flawless finish of it. I tend to have pretty red skin in areas and it is quite uneven, I love this foundation because it allows me to feel completely confident about my skin! A bottle also lasts me about 2/3 months- not bad considering how often I use it!

CONS: The price would have to be the only con I can find! Because I love this foundation so much and it works for me, I do wear it every day. However, I can get past the price because I am simply in love!


I reckon I'm definitely one of the biggest advocates out there for Estee's Double Wear. I have tried a fair few foundations but they all just go to the back of the drawer- nothing compares to this! Please, give it a go and see for yourself!

Annndddd... that concludes my review on the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation... is there a product I am totally missing out on? Let me know!

  1. This is a great post holly! I tried to wear double wear but it oxidised on my face so much which is such a shame because everyone always goes on about it and how good it is!! I wish I could wear it 😫
