Estée Lauder is the 4th foundation I have tried! I have struggled so much in finding a foundation that fits my oily skin! I wanted something that made me look matte but not like a doll and I finally found that with Estée Lauder double wear!


I did love the matte finish I got from urban decay all night however there colours were just not right for my skin hence me looking for a new foundation after 3 attempts my 4th attempt was finally successful with Estée Lauder, I wear the foundation all day at work in a warm office and come home to make up that has not budged! Great for my oily skin, yes I do need to add a little powder toward the end of the day but this is miles better than any other foundation I have tried!

I've been searching for my HG every-day spf winter foundation and i think I've found it. I was looking for a lighter, natural coverage which lasts. I'm a teacher in London and right now the weather and long hours are playing havoc with my skin. I have combination skin which is prone to acne which doesn't help (whoever told me that my spots would go during my late twenties is a merchant of LIES).

I never get a chance to touch up my make-up during the day so needed something that I could apply early in the morning and trust to either wear off gracefully or (unimaginably) actually stay on my face and look nice after 12 hours - I'm happy to say that this foundation does the latter. After years of looking at my tired face at the end of the day in the (bloody awful) lighting of the staff toilets and weeping inwardly at the patchy mess my other foundations left behind, this is an actual blessing.

The colour match is perfect for my pale skin and it doesn't accentuate any dry or flaky patches. Miraculously it also doesn't turn my face into an oil slick either. I wear it over Laura Mercier's 'protect' primer and then set it very lightly with powder and it pretty much sorts me out for the day. Bit of harmless shine on my nose but nothing too offensive. Also doesn't break me out which, considering my usual reaction to spf and my woefully sensitive skin, is another blessing.

You will definitely need concealer over spots if you're going for a super flawless finish but personally I just need something that gets me through the day without scaring/entertaining my students so I'm fine with the sheer finish.

I don't know what kind of voodoo magic EL have up their sleeve but I'm just praying this doesn't get discontinued.

Mascara -Estee Lauder -Sumptuous knockout defining lift and fan mascara

This mascara has improved with opening like red wine. I see why the love. It has improved greatly: giving length, fullness and long wear. No flaking or smudging. And I no longer have to use primer. Oh and my curl stays intact. Upping the bullets.

Originally--A you tuber I like was all over this mascara so lemming that I am I ordered this mascara. I love the brush: narrow rubber bristled brush perfect for small eyes, and it initially goes on so well providing definition, length and some volume. But by midday my lashes have fallen and the mascara looks wonky, and it seems to have worn off. I work from home at a desk job so I'm not digging ditches so my mascara should be intact all day. This mascara is just a wimp.

But instead of giving up on it I tried it with Shiseido's primer and it lasted all day with only slight flaking. Still considering sending this back. (And I have got to Stop following this you tuber. Half of the things I've bought recently have been because of her. Just say NO!)

I am 20, i have oily, acne prone skin. My skin is very red and break outs around my mouth and forehead. Bottom line of this foundation is it covers fully. You would never know that I’m breaking out it’s great.It’s very thick but it covers my acne. Problem is, if you apply it a certain way, it will look cakey or tend to look that way. At the end of the day your face looks dry and creased. Even after priming and setting your face. i have been using this foundation for months, and for the price, it should perform miracles. I found Revlon color stay foundation for only $12 and it is an exact dupe. If you are to try this foundation, save at least $25 and go with the Revlon. Hope i helped!

Smudged after half a day. Big smudges. Disappointed for this kind of price.

THIS foundation is by far the greatest foundation I have ever used. I have combination skin and nothing holds up with it like this does. The color selection is great and the price is affordable.

After I've started using this product, I came to know that what the word "holy grail product" actually means. Formerly I used to think that it is normal for foundations to come off from my face with smartphone screen, or crease after a few hours. But after I've started using this foundation, my expectation from the 'foundation' department has been sky-touching! It is expensive, but I don't regret spending my money on it. In fact, I'll certainly purchase another bottle, when I'll use it all up. It worths every penny.

I quite like this blush it applies really well and blends in quite naturally. ı would recommend this shade for lighter skin tones. The package seemed sturdy, yet got broken in my makeup bag. the mirror part is detached so I can not carry it around, I wear it before ı leave home. Shade and formula is amazing, yet the package is not so well.

I have very oily skin and most foundations dont last, break me out and show my huge pores. But honestly, the ELDW is for now the one that lasts the longer on my skin, gives a natural finish (I think it only happened twice that it got cakey and I accidentally put on way too much product) Is doen't work with all primers, but I think this is quite normal for any foundation. I can apply it with brush, beautyblender or fingers and can get a nice finish with any of those. I really like the performance of this product, even if you have to buy a pump - Mac ones work, and not EL does offer the possiblity to buy a pump for double wear but I think it's a bit dishonest - why not include the pump in the packaging? Anyway, for now this is my HG.


Fragrances -Estee Lauder -Cinnabar

When it gets icy outside and Christmas is only a matter of weeks away, I
reach for my rather dowdy bottle of Cinnabar and it immediately puts me in
a festive mood.
This heavy-hitter needs a delicate touch or it will fill a room with no problem.
I usually spray twice - once in the nape of my neck and once on a wrist. It is also
unbelievably good on wool or fur clothing and lasts even longer that way. Be aware
that the juice is dark and may stain fabrics!
On my skin I get mainly clove, cinnamon, peach and woods. It's definitely a sensual
scent and a man magnet too, if sprayed lightly. People will want to know what you are wearing
and will comment on it one way or the other.

This product is always on my makeup shelf. It's coverage is fantastic, but not noticeable. It's matte, super long-wearing, and evens out redness in my skin. The only thing I don't like about it is the bottle. (Why has no one but Chanel figured out that bottles of foundation with no squeeze-top or similar mechanism, leave gloppy, gluey foundation all over the mouth of the bottle? What a waste of product.)

Went to the estee lauder counter and was colour matched by the very helpful and knowledgeable BA to 2W2, which is a warm yellow based shade. The colour was the best match for any foundation I have ever had, including my beloved Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, absolutely spot on. I have a very difficult skin tone to match and most other cosmetic houses don't offer a wide enough selection. I also have extremely dry, sensitive skin and was very excited to try this. The BA gave me an extremely generous weeks supply to trial. This was great, as based on the first hour I would have purchased it. But as the day went on, my face got drier and tighter and the skin around my eyes was so dry it was flaking. What a shame I really wanted to love this just for the colour alone, but I think this is a foundation best suited to a combination oily skin or a younger skin with more natural moisture. It certainly lives up to the longevity and does not transfer at all, a great bonus. Just not for me.

Liquid -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Light No SPF

I've been avoiding this thinking it was going to be heavy coverage but it's light and can be sheer to medium depending on how I apply it. It looks very natural on my skin and doesn't look dry or emphasize my pores or my lines. I'm so surprised!. 1.0 is a great color for my NC20 skin color and looks perfect. Love the tube. I need a foundation that holds up to coats and scarves for the winter--I hate transfer.


Liquid -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Light SPF10

I would probably give it 3,5 rather than 4; however, overall this product is not a disappointment at all.

I was looking for something with a light to medium coverage and good staying power on combination skin. Had this in shade 1,0 before and now am using 0,5. My skin is light but not pale and has a warm undertone. Although the consultant at Estee Lauder told me that all their shades had a neutral undertone and color intensity was self-explanatory from 0,5 and up:) I personally find that shade 0,5 is much better for me because it looks more warm than neutral and it is not as light one would expect for a 0,5 shade. Either way, the 0,5 looks way more natural on my face although usually, the lightest shades in a foundation range are way too pale on me. In other words, if you have a light skin, try both 0,5 and 1,0 and subtle differences in them can go a long way.

In terms of ease of application, I found applying it with fingers worked best for me because the formula is similar to a bb or cc cream. Also, be sure to moisturize well because it has a tendency to accentuate dry patches. Although I don't use primer on a regular basis, with this foundation, I would say it is quite helpful. On my face, the foundation does not last as long as promised; however, I do need way fewer touch-ups in the t-zone and (my favorite part!) it does not leave any marks on your phone! Haven't noticed any breakouts either. To be fair, though, this does not look as natural on my face as I would like it to do and has a tendency to settle in pores... Hence, 3,5-4 lippies, but still one of the better ones I've owned so far.

I really like this and would repurchase. I’m 33 and starting to see the first signs of aging (fine lines, dullness) while still suffering from mild adult acne, mainly in the form of clogged pores rather than red, inflamed spots. Ever since I started using ANR 3 months ago, my skin has been clearer, smoother and just healthier looking overall. Basically, I wake up and think, „Hey, my skin is looking pretty alright today.“ I can‘t quite pinpoint what it does exactly - for me it‘s a booster to my otherwise simple skin care routine (Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser, rosehip oil and La Roche Posay moisturiser) that helps my skin look less dull and oddly seems to improve my mild adult acne. Bottom line: it’s expensive but my skin likes it.
