I’ve been a long time wearer of Estee Lauder Double Wear over the years and go through about one bottle a year. I’ve been wanting to try the matching concealer pot since Anna from The Anna Edit has been raving about it recently! I’m a huge fan of Anna’s channel and since we are similar skin types and tones, I take her advice pretty seriously!
Luckily, the concealer has not been a disappointment in the slightest! I purchased this in 1C Light Cool and it matches me perfectly. This is the Double Wear Stay-in-Place High Cover Concealer SPF 30+ concealer, and we have fewer shades available in Australia (as with 99% of makeup available in Australia) than overseas.
This concealer is best applied by gently swirling your ring finger in the pot and dabbing this gently under your eye. I would personally suggest blending as you go on this one, as with the foundation, it dries quite quickly. I do set this concealer with the lightest highlight colour in the Kat Von D Shade and Light palette with the Real Techniques setting brush but this can obviously look powdery. If I don’t, it still stays on very well and does not have the powdery effect, but rather, a glowing skin effect. I find I get an entire day (10 hours +) of coverage from this, which is more than NARS and Urban Decay, but the same as MAC.
This foundation is pretty renowned for being long lasting, and more suited to oily skin types. Personally, I have combination skin (oily forehead and chin, dry nose and around the mouth, normal cheeks) and this works for me. I apply this with a Beauty Blender to help sheer it out, and also to give it more of a dewy effect when applying. To prime before applying, I only wear Hourglass No.28 Primer Serum as it acts as an additional serum in my routine and gives an amazing glowing and fresh skin whilst wearing a pretty mattifying foundation. I get a full day’s wear of this too (like over 15 hours).
Gift With Purchase
I always time my Estee Lauder purchases in time for their annual Gift With Purchase presents. Before I was super interested in makeup, almost my entire collection was from GWP from my mum. This time I received a few skincare items I am super interested in trying out like the Advanced Night Repair and the Day Cream moisturiser, as well as some makeup items and a perfume.
