The pop­u­lar one

Estée Lauder Dou­ble Wear Makeup, £29.50

No. 1 Magazine - - FRONT PAGE -

The brand’s hype: “This is the UK’S No.1 Foun­da­tion. 15-hour stay­ing power. Flaw­less all day. Won’t change colour, smudge or come off on clothes. Feels light­weight and com­fort­able.”

Ver­dict: Although this did start to high­light dry patches, most long-wear for­mu­las tend to do the same. There are many good points to this op­tion like cov­er­age and longevity. If you go for this foun­da­tion ex­fo­li­ate regularly.

This goes on thick and creamy, but it doesn’t feel like you’re ap­ply­ing a mask. It’s also very easy to blend and the cov­er­age is great. So far I can see why it’s so pop­u­lar.

By lunchtime on a very muggy day, the foun­da­tion still looks good but you are aware that you’re wear­ing lots of foun­da­tion. It’s not that breath­able.

The cov­er­age has faded very slightly on the nose (though hayfever did re­sult in a lot of sneez­ing and tis­sue us­age). And it’s clung a lit­tle to the dry patches on my face.
