Foundation Friday: Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation | EmmyWritesAbout

Foundation Friday is back after a few weeks off! I have currently moved house and also been struggling after my big knee operation. Blogging has been the last thing on my mind but im finally trying to get back into it! I do have a Beauty & Stationary Giveaway coming up on the blog over the next few weeks for reaching 1000 followers on bloglovin!

Today’s Foundation Friday is all about the extremely hyped about Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation Makeup. On paper this foundation is perfect for me as i love full coverage and i have extremely oily skin… So why did i hate this foundation so much?! Yes i hated it! I know i have always seen this foundation is hit or miss because people say it is cakey etc but no it wasn’t that. The packaging is pretty as it comes in a glass bottle with a gold lid but no pump. 

So i moisturised and primed as i usually would and then decided to try this with a Beauty Blender. I applied a small amount, blended then added a little more and blended again. Eurgh my face looked horrible! It wasn’t full coverage! You could still see my freckles and the odd breakout. For this to be full coverage you have to apply ALOT! I tried again a few days later but this time i tried applying it with a flat top kabuki brush and again it looked awful. I left it on and carried on with my day to see if it settled more and how well it lasted. Lets just say nah this doesn’t work on my oily skin. Yes i wasn’t extremely oily but i still had a fair old amount of oil on my face. It went patchy and didn’t do anything for me. 

I have tried this with many primers and tools but nothing seems to work. In my opinion my Seventeen Stay Time Foundation is much better, provides full coverage, doesn’t look cakey and lasts well.
