If you’re looking for to create a flawless finish with medium coverage that lasts, then read on dear reader!

Why do I love it so?

Think of it as the relative of a famous actor. The original Double Wear by Estée Lauder has a worldwide cult following, and Double Wear Light has been launched for those of us who want a light to medium coverage. It also stays on forever! I apply it at 8:00 am and it’s still there at 8:00 pm. No, really. It’s still there. For a foundation to still look amazing after 12 hours is a staggering achievement (a lot of brands promise, Estée Lauder actually delivers). An added-bonus of this is that because it lasts so long, anything that you put on top of it, like bronzer, blush or highlighter becomes long-lasting as well! If you use one, now is the time to kiss your primer goodbye. Because of its staying power, you would expect the formula to be very heavy, but it’s not. It’s actually very lightweight. It has a nice velvety/matte finish, that leaves my skin looking healthy, and doesn’t wipe my features out (like a lot of long-wear foundations do). It also doesn’t oxidize or change colour and covers anything that I need to be covered. My skin type is combination – I am slightly oily on my nose and forehead and drier on my cheeks. This foundation is perfect and even without powder, stays in place for the day and doesn’t dry my skin out.
