New In: Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation and Concealer

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 theĀ 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.

Concealer Notes:

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.

Foundation Notes:

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.
