Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Stay In Place Makeup SPF 10 - Review

Estée Lauder is quickly becoming one of my all time favourite brands. I love their concept, products and high standards. I know a lot of people think they're products are geared more towards mature customers but they actually have some really fun items suitable for everyone. They've even launched a collection with Kendall Jenner called 'The Estée Edit'. I haven't tried any of the bits from this range yet but don't worry, it's on my to-do list. I picked up the Double Wear Light foundation a while ago and and it's become my go-to Summer base. Of course the original Double Wear is much more popular but a lot of people find it heavy or clogging. Hopefully today's review helps you decide wether Double Wear Light would be good for you. I hope you enjoy.
The foundation comes in a squeezy tube with a twist off cap. Great for travel.
Price - £31 for 30ml
Shade - 0.5
Texture - Liquid
Finish - Glowing, medium coverage

What is it
This is a beautiful liquid foundation that offers a buildable medium coverage with a radiant finish. The texture applies nicely to the skin without highlighting dryness or blemishes. It makes the skin look polished but still fresh at the same time. Suitable for all skin types. 

How I use it
I apply the product to the skin and then start to buff it in with a buffing brush. It also applies nicely with fingers or sponges. Once the first layer is on I see if I need more coverage and apply more if necessary. This foundation looks lovely on the skin and I always feel like my skin looks glowing and natural. I did notice that it catches the little hairs on my face (around brows etc) but blended in well, it's not noticeable. It lasts pretty much all day on me, I typically wear makeup for a maximum of 7-8 hours. My natural oils do tend to show through towards the end of the day but I love that because it melts everything into the skin a bit better. There's no fragrance to the foundation which is great. The packaging is super convenient and travel friendly. I love that there's SPF protection as well.

Pros
- Good shade range
- Non heavy texture
- Doesn't exaggerate blemishes or texture
- Blends nicely with any tool
- No scent
- Oil free
- Travel friendly
- SPF 10
- Good for all skin types

Cons
- Expensive

Summary
I'm really impressed with this foundation. I find it to be the perfect balance of good coverage with a light texture. It will work for pretty much everyone. If you have acne you can always use concealer for specific areas but use the foundation for an overall lighter finish. I'd highly recommend checking this out at a counter near you. 

Thank you for reading!
