Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation





This is my favourite foundation I have ever used!! I bought this for £28.50 in John Lewis in their lightest shade 1C1 Shell. 

I know this foundation is popular with brides for its stay wear and coverage, one of the reasons I bought it. If its good enough for a bride on their wedding day, its good enough for me lol!

This has an SPF of 10 and is a liquid foundation. It contains no oil which is great for oily skin types like me. Its also has great lasting coverage which is one of the things I look for in foundation. I also love that this foundation doesnt cause me any breakouts. It lasts me all day and I dont have to touch it up. The shade is also a good match for my ghostly skin! 

On John Lewis the product description is 'Keeps skin looking fabulous, breathing comfortably through heat, humidity and activity without changing colour, fading or coming off on clothes. Natural matte finish and SPF10 sunscreen to protect skin.' 

I can say my skin does feel like it can breathe and it does last through humidity and activity (I experimented with this through exercise ha!) I do think I have seen this rub off one time on a white shirt though, not a lot but it did come off a smidge.

The packaging is nice and is a glass bottle with a golden lid. It has also lasted me for ages, I bought a second bottle because I thought I was getting low but I was wrong and over a month since I bought the second bottle I am still not on it!

One thing that I find fault with is that it doesnt have a pump!  I hate having to pour and then if too much comes out trying to save it all and put it back in!  

Can you recommend any good foundations with good coverage? I love trying new ones! Also going a bit off topic but anyone recommend any good self tanners?
