After seeing a huge mix of reviews i was really unsure of whether to purchase the Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation, because lets face it £31 is a lot of money for a bottle of foundation!
I have really oily skin which is prone to breakouts. I have been using MAC studio fix foundation for years, but it was no longer suiting my skin and after a day at work my face looked soooooo greasy and it feels horrendous!
Is it worth the money?
After using the foundation for nearly a month now i absolutely love it and so does my skin! You can’t even tell i have oily skin, even after having the foundation on all day! I would definitely say it is worth the money – it has improved my confidence massively!! And i finally feel that i have my oily skin under control.
I was previously paying £22 for MAC studio fix foundation, so i don’t mind paying the extra £9 for the improvements it has on my make-up.
- I would not purchase this product if i didn’t have oily skin. The foundation is purposely dries out your skin, so i can imagine it would feel extremely uncomfortable if you already had dry skin!
- Do not apply with a beauty blender. I found that the foundation soaks into the sponge and you actually waste your foundation, i find it much better to apply with a foundation brush.
- Always apply a primer or moisturiser. Even though i have really oily skin i find that if i don’t apply some kind of primer before the foundation, my skin feels really sore because the foundation dries your skin out that much.
I had seen a lot of girls claiming that the foundation felt like cement on their face. If you are thinking of trying this foundation i would definitely recommend you going into a shop and asking for a demo before making any decisions. This is because everyones face is sooo different and i’m so glad i didn’t let negative reviews put me off trying the foundation.
Do you struggle with oily or blemish prone skin? I’d love to know what products you use to control this?!
