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.

After placing the order, they told me I would receive my parcel in 15 days.
But surprising enough, I got all the stuff delivered within a week.
My joy knew no boundaries.
The lip balm came packed in a cardboard box with bubble wrap around it.
And the tunic was safely packed in double packaging.
Both the items were delivered at my doorstep without any damage.
While placing the order, I accidentally selected COD, then called the customer service.
They were polite enough to cancel the order and I placed a fresh one.
Now along with my order, They also sent me a Rs.300 off coupon for future purchases.
The quality of the tunic / Kurta is good, even though I didn’t expect so, for the price.

My Experience

I have been using Avon Strawberry Lip balm almost for five years. Simply, Because i never found any better tinted lip balm. When Nivea lip balms were launched, I saw my friend using the Cherry version, which looked quite pigmented.So I went ahead and bought the all the shades except dragonfruit.
Which im still hunting, but its not available anywhere.(Do let me know if you have any idea where to find it). Apart from Cherry, all the lip balms have very pleasant fragrance. The moisturising quality of Nivea Fruity Shine Lip Balm is not very good. It stays for about 2-3 hours without any meals. Nivea Fruity Shine Lip balms give food gloss on lips. Nothing that looks too loud. Best part about this Fruity shine rangeis that it has SPF 10 too. Coming to the shades, my review is based on my slightly pigmented lips.

Nivea Fruity Shine Pink Guava Lip Balm
Nivea Fruity Shine Pink Guava Lip Balm

Nivea Fruity Shine Pink Guava Lip Balm (Light Pink)

Pink guava gives a light pink tint, which looks very natural.
Guava tastes sweet and I like its fragrance the most, out of all.
However, it would suit non-pigmented lips and fair toned people more.
As, it doesn’t completely hide my pigmentation.

Nivea Fruity Shine Strawberry Lip Balm

Nivea Fruity Shine Strawberry Lip Balm (Red Tint)

Strawberry provides a reddish tint with a slight orangish undertone.

Nivea Fruity Shine Cherry Lip Balm (Dark Pink Tint)

Cherry, when applied on lips, looks dark pinkish.
I hate the fake fragrance, it has.
Actually i don’t particularly like the cherry smell in Avon lip balms as well.
