Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation | Review


heya friends!

I will be doing another in-depth review about a product that I have loved, adored, and worshiped for years now. The Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation was my first high end foundation that I have ever purchased. I did an extensive amount of research before buying this product because I wanted to make sure this thing was perfect, especially since it has a hefty price tag with it. This is for anyone who is considering purchasing a high end foundation and want something amaazzzinggg!

Price and ContainerIMG_2764_Fotor.jpgThe foundation is $38 for a 1 fl. oz. frosted glass container. I wish it came with a pump but it’s simply a twist off cap. It can get messy when trying to pour it onto the back of your hand or brush but I’ve heard that you can find a pump that is the correct size and slip it on. This foundation comes in 38 shades so there is a shade for everyone haha. I am in 1W2 Sand.

What it Claims to Do

  • 15-hour wear
  • Natural finish
  • Lightweight, oil-free, and buildable formula
  • Heat, humidity resistance

What it Actually Does

  • I’ve only worn it for 12-13 hours tops and it stays put perfectly.
  • No cake finish; very natural looking on the skin.
  • It is lightweight for a high coverage foundation and super buildable.
  • I wore this when I was hiking for hours in Portland and it looked exactly the same after.

ApplicationIMG_2767_Fotor.jpgIMG_2768_Fotor_Fotor_Collage_Fotor.jpgIt blends like a dream. I like using it best with my Real Techniques buffing brush or even with clean fingers. The consistency is quite watery. It is a high coverage foundation; usually one application smooths and conceals my whole face. I don’t think I ever go back with concealer to make sure spots are covered since the foundation does all the work. The again, I don’t suffer from crazy hyper pigmentation or rosacea, etc…But look at how even my skin looks above! Before, I have some acne scars and discoloration. After applying I have flawless, even, smooth skin!! Yas.

WearIMG_2763_Fotor.jpgThis foundation is a long wear foundation. It can last all day in rain or shine. I used to work at a very busy medical clinic where I was moving around constantly, sweating, and stressing out. I would get ready at 6:30am and wear it until close to 6 to 7pm so that’s almost 12 to 13 hours wear. Hot damn! It would still be on my face and be able to maintain a pretty matte complexion. I’m sure it can go up to the claimed 15 hours but I’ve never had to wear makeup that long.

Overall, this has been and still is one of my favorite foundations. It is so compatible with my oily/combo skin. The Double Wear has been highly praised in the makeup world by many huge beauty gurus so it really is worth the money. A little goes a long way. The tub I have now has lasted me for soooo long and I’m finally starting to run out…time to get another one 🙂 Hope this was helpful ❤

Date Makeup | 3 Year Anniversary


Heya friends!

Today, on this lovely Sunday morning, I have a little date makeup look that I wore for a very special dinner that my boyfriend and I went to. It was our third year anniversary so we decided to be classy and eat at a nice restaurant in Newport Beach. I usually don’t wear make up at all; at most, it’s bb cream, powder, and eyebrows. I don’t like putting stuff on my eyelids during the week as well so this look is a full face of make up for me. I am a noob but I still love make up so much! I really don’t know why, it’s a weird addiction. Make up brands just have amazing advertising skills that make you want every single thing haha. IMG_2367_Fotor.jpgIMG_2357_Fotor.jpg

What I’m wearing:

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Sand

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Ginger

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Sandstorm

Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in Auburn

Urban Decay Primer Potion

Eyeshadows from the original Naked palette

Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner in Trooper

NYX Matte Bronzer in Dark Tan

NYX Lip Liner in Red Brick

Colourpop Lippie Stix in Dalia

Korean Brand Fake Eyelashes: Darkness in Natural

Maybelline Falsies Mascara

I’m not used to wearing this much makeup so after a few hours, I was itching to get it off my face haha.

Anyways! Sean and I dined at Fig & Olive in Newport Beach. We’ve been here with his family months ago and absolutely loved it! A very romantic, beautiful, classy ambiance and the food is worth the splurge. They are known for their crostini collection paired with wine and their oil selection. Feast your eyes upon these horribly lit photos haha. It was dark so I did the best I could to lighten up each photo.

Great customer service, perfect environment, and lovely food for the price. If you live in/visiting the SoCal area and you want be a little fancy for dinner, this place is worth a try. Make sure to make reservations for weekend dining because they get busy!

All in all, twas a relaxing evening. We used to do extravagant things for our anniversaries but I think we try to enjoy our company more than anything now. Talking, laughing, and joking around is what we do best!

I really hope you guys liked todays post! I will be posting a little something in a few days that shows more into my personal life 🙂
