I’m not sure if you guys are like me but I NEED to have two different types of foundation. I use Bobbi Brown ’Skin Foundation’ in Porcelain. The lighter wear helps me slap on this stuff in a hurry while I run out the door However, I recently became a big fan of Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in ‘Cool Bone’ because it gives me a stronger finish that glides gracefully over the skin.
The different between the two is really the weight. The Estee Lauder Double Wear claims it stays in place and guess what? It REALLY does! Weight is heavier than the Bobbi Brown one but doesn’t give you that cake-y look.
Some of you may be saying that Estee Lauder is your mom’s brand. I used to believe that until I felt the quality of this brand. I have the Double Wear concealer in 1C Light and I use it mainly as an under eye concealer. I’ve been so happy with the staying power of this makeup that I went straight to Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in Place Makeup as a go to.
Now I must caution you on the actual format of the packaging. There is a new, really cool packaging that the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation comes in. That is called the Cushion Stick (comes in the same colours as the bottle). What this is, as you can see from the photo is a built in sponge at the end of stick that is the applicator.
My Cushion Stick broke 2 times! Yes you read that right. The first time, there was an explosion at the bottom of the stick all of the product came pouring out. The second time the cushion actually fell off. It’s great that they allow you to clean the thing but that was never my intention. I guess I pressed on my face too hard?
I originally loved this packaging because it made it so easy to apply and I didn’t have to use a beauty blender but kids, let’s stick to the basics. Foundation in a bottle is perfectly fine by me!I did reach out to Estee Lauder and they sent me the second Cushion Stick in the mail without any questions asked. But, when it broke for the second time I decided that I loved the actual formula of the product but the cushion stick still needed more testing to be a great product.
I’m happy with my decision for the Double Wear Stay-in Place Makeup
Let me know if you guys use two different pieces of foundation as well!
