Estee Lauder Double Wear in 'Ivory Nude' £19.75 (Gunwharf Quays)
Behind the purchase and price
Cue the quickest review of all time. Like everyone else I too had been woo'ed by the ways of Estee Lauder.. SO many bloggers have raved about this product, but whilst on my internship a week ago I went in to have a skin test with this and was really surprised to find that the lightest colour the counter I went to had was still too orange for me.
WELL. Myself and Dan ventured for a day out in Portsmouth and I happened to stumble into a shop minus a sign but with hoards of Mac, Estee Lauder, Origins etc!? I was literally beaming, infact it was a little cringey.. This shop, forgive me I don't know its name, was selling old collections or factory seconds or discontinued products - I WAS LIKE A CHILD IN A SWEET SHOP.
Needless to say when I saw double wear for £19.75 I HAD to pick it up, I must have drove Dan mad walking in and out of the shop to check the colour against the light...
immediately I noticed the coverage that everyone had so rightly raved about, with this baby you need not want for concealer - it does all the leg work for you, I always stick to a heavy coverage with foundation so if you do to - this is for you. Consistency wise your looking at the same sort as MAC studio fix - I honestly don't feel greasy or caked with this on, I always set it with stay matte from Rimmel too and again no caking, as far as spots I haven't noticed any break outs from it and as for applying I'd recommend the real techniques stippling brush as always! My only complaint is that the bottle doesn't have a pump and you end up wasting product pouring if your not careful!
Never the less I probably will re-purchase for full price as a pale girl with blemish prone skin this is ticking all my boxes!
