The Review

I was looking for a long-wearing, matte foundation for my wedding. And narrowed my search to 2 choices – Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place or Mac prolong wear foundation. I first went to the MAC counter, But the staff at inorbit just put me off. So instead i went to the Estee Lauder Counter, and she gave me shade 3W2 Cashew in Double Wear.
Just to let to know the shades actually look darker in the bottle and in swatch. But once you put it on your face, it looks way more light. Maybe next time i’ll go for a shade darker.

Anyways coming to the review, Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Foundation scores on all points but one.
It provides absolute full coverage in 2 layers, even to the most blemished skin.
Covers up most spots. I sometimes use it as a concealer.
It stayed on me for 12 hours. (That’s the maximum I’ve tested it for.)
Although I did powder my oily t-zone once.
It contains SPF 10, which made me pray that I don’t look like a white ghost in the wedding pics.
But hopefully they didn’t use the white flash for photography but other lights.

Here’s a picture of me in the wedding makeup.

This foundation doesn’t irritate my skin at all or cause any breakouts.
Mostly, anything i put on my skin tends to break me out but not this one.
But you need to scrub to remove it, as it doesn’t come off easily.
It blends better that Lotus Herbals Purestay Foundation, But you need to be quick. Dry skin people would need to avoid Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place, as it makes skin drier.
The foundation did not oxidise on me.

Below is a picture which shows the coverage.Their is no foundation on my fingers.
