Hey guys, hope you all had a great day! I have been on the search for a new foundation that has more coverage and that can withstand the humidity that summer often brings. So after some research, I found that the Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay- in- Place foundation. I think this is a great product and I’m ready to dive into this foundation with you guys!
Let’s Talk Foundation:

Star Rating: 4.6/5 stars – according to Ulta.com
Longevity- The foundation lasted up to 12 hours of wear before it really started to look dull/faded. Even though it didn’t last the 24 hours that it claimed, I wouldn’t let that stop me from purchasing the foundation again. It lasted as long as a night out or work day, so I can’t complain much about that. Because it claimed to be 24 hour and was only 12, I would have to give it a 3.5/5 stars.
Wearability- This foundation is great because they coverage is very natural. It is definitely more on the light to medium coverage, even though it was claimed medium to full. It is very buildable, but to get really full coverage, I found that it looked a little cracking, and looked ‘cakey’. So I rocked it at medium coverage and I think it looked great. It was very comfortable, It felt like I wasn’t wearing any foundation at all. Which is great because I hate the feeling of heavy makeup, it makes me feel gross lol! So for this section, I would definitely rate it 4.5/5 stars.
Oil/Shine control- This section is the most important to me because I am such an oily girl! Sorry guys, but this category is super important because it makes or breaks foundations for me. So this foundation claims to help control oil and reduce shine. I really think it did a great job. I was sweating pretty bad in the foundation, I was in rain, and very humid weather. I stayed relatively shine and oil free for about 5 hours throughout all of that going against me. After five hours, I thought that I would have to powder a bit to get the oil down. So I was pretty impressed with the oil because usually, that is what I struggle with the most. So I would give this a 4/5 stars.
I really like the foundation, I think it is great for people with oily skin. If you have more dry skin, I wouldn’t recommend this foundation. I think it would just dry you out too much. The shade was perfect with my skin and it blended into my skin so well for a natural flawless finish. I hope you guys liked this foundation, let me know what you guys think of this foundation and if you have tried it!
