Estée Lauder have been one of the brands that never fails when it comes to skin, the products literally gives the best results. I have been one of the long time lover for the Double Wear Foundation from many years for its coverage, lightweight and lasting power. I was very excited when I found out that Estée Lauder is bringing a lighter version of Double Wear – Double Wear Nude (C$48.00 for ). Double Wear Nude foundation comes in 12 shades and contains SPF 30. Its designed to give a nice luminous coverage, with a satin texture and medium coverage. It’s a foundation that is good for all skin textures (Normal, Dry, Combination and Oily). It’s lightweight and feels like skin, doesn’t slid or smear on the skin at all. The foundation looks fresh with a good lasting power.
I have had a good experience with the Double Wear foundation, although the Double Wear foundation is designed for combination to Oily skin but for my dry skin adding a couple drop of facial oil worked wonders for me. I would say Double Wear Nude Foundation is a much lighter version of Original Double Wear in terms of coverage and I didn’t need any kind of facial oil at all. I received the press sample from the brand in Tawny but the color was a little peachy to my skin tone. My shade in Double Wear is Sand which is an exact color to match my skin tone. I believe more shades will be introduced later, I did went to my local Estée Lauder counter to get matched but I couldn’t find an exact match, again I have to mix two shades to get matched.
Application is easy, you can use your finger tips or stapling brush and you can get a flawless finish. I wouldn’t suggest to use a Beauty Blender since it will sheer out the foundation a lot. Coverage is medium but buildable without looking cakey and offers a luminous finish and it does wear off at the end of the day without setting powder. It doesn’t cover up under eye circle (if have so) but otherwise it does pretty good job covering uneven skin tone. It comes in the same original Double Wear packaging but more in rectangular form. I wasn’t a big fun of packaging at first, I was wishing they come with a pump dispenser.
Bottom line I loved it! I personally loved Double Wear foundation especially for events and some especial occasions where I needed coverage the most, and now I loved how this Double Wear Nude is light and feels like skin which makes it perfect for every day. I would say it’s one of the foundations where you can wear it day and night. You can wear on daily basis with just one application with it feels and looks natural and can get a better coverage by layering it for evening events and occasions. It carries a good amount of SPF to carry you through out the day as well as a good lasting power. It has every thing you need for a every day foundation – here are some other favorite foundations especially for those who is looking for more options. You can now shop Double Wear Nude at all Estée Lauder counters at department stores, Sephora and EsteeLauder.ca.
