Double Wear Stay-In-Place Liquid Makeup

I have been using KVD Lock-It foundation, but wanted to try the Double Wear since it has a huge range of shades and comes so highly recommended. I went to Ulta to get color matched and ended up buying Ecru. This foundation is advertised as full coverage, but I've found that it is more medium coverage. The Lock-It completely covers my hyperpigmentation and under eye circles, and the Double Wear doesn't come close. I am disappointed by this, but since it is a perfect match to my skin tone and looks natural, I'm willing to let that slide. The Double Wear applies very nicely, and I've had good results using my fingers or a brush. This foundation wears very well and doesn't seem to transfer, which is great. I like the glass bottle that it comes in, but I wish that Estee Lauder would just include a pump already. I had to buy one separately, because I feel like a pump is more hygienic and obviously more convenient. On the DOWNSIDE, I've been using this product for a couple of weeks now and my face is breaking out something terrible. I have dry skin and hardly ever get a zit, let alone a face full of them. I'm very disappointed, because this is truly the ONLY cosmetic product that has ever broken me out. I don't know which ingredient is in it that doesn't agree with my skin, but I'm thinking that I'll have to go back to the KVD foundation. I was hoping that the Double Wear would end up being my HG, since it comes so highly recommended. Unfortunately, I can't continue to use it. If you have sensitive skin I'm not sure how well this product will work for you. If you buy a bottle, save your receipt so that you can return it if you have a problem!

Double Wear Stay-In-Place Liquid Makeup

Coverage and Finish This foundation has pretty heavy coverage and most of the time one simple thin layer would suffice. It dries down to a matte finish pretty quickly after application and does not cake if you're not using too many layers. Long-lasting This lasts about 8 hours during a hot summer day without needing touchups. It is likely to "break" after over 10 hours of wear without touchups. Transfer-free I have pretty oily skin and to make things worse, I live in a place which is hot and humid throughout the year. This is the only foundation I've ever tried (I've tried at least 8 different brands) that does not transfer, which is a huge plus since I wear spectacles pretty frequently. Typically, I finish a bottle with close to daily use in around 3-4 months. The only thing I really dislike about it is that it STILL has no foundation pump.

Double Wear Stay-In-Place Eye Pencil - Coffee 02

This shade is about as dark as I will go for lining my eyes: I'm 60 this year (NC25, blue eyes, blonde) and black/dark navy are too harsh and aging on me, but this rich coffee/chocolate shade makes my eyes pop. Goes on like a dream, pretty good at staying put (really, no pencils are that great at staying in place, and if you are starting to develop a little crepey-ness under your lower lashes, it's easy to go from glamorous to trash panda within hours. I'm on my second pencil in this shade, and I never repurchase products (I like to sample different things) but recently I discovered Marc Jacobs gel liners and they have become my new HG eye pencil.
