Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Foundation

For awhile now I've been looking for the perfect foundation. One with a light coverage that makes my skin glow, yet also last from morning to night. I had my eye on Estee Lauder's Double Wear Light Foundation for a few months, I researched it and read so many reviews. Finally I went into Myers to get it. It's a funny story actually. The makeup artist there applied it to my face; she put such a heavy layer on, that my face felt quite wet from it and the result didn't look too nice. I will never understand why she caked on a light foundation, but each to their own. I did end up purchasing it and I've decided to review it for you all.


Pro's:
The foundation provides a sheer to medium coverage. I prefer a lighter coverage but it is buildable if you prefer a bit more coverage. It leaves my skin looking flawless and glowy. The foundation is so lightweight that it feels like I'm not even wearing anyIt is quite a lightweight foundation. My skin always feels super soft and silky. Which is a bonus in my books.

It blends in like a charm. I generally apply 2 or 3 pumps to my skin and use a brush to buff it into my skin. I haven't tried it, but I imagine it would be easy to work with using your fingers. The longevity is amazing. I can apply it in the morning and it will last through out the day. I don't even need to reapply before a night out. I also love the packaging, it looks and feels luxurious.

Con's:
Unfortunately  there isn't a big variety of colours in the range (I think there are 6 or 7 intensity's in the range). I have intensity one which is the lightest of the range. I feel it could be too dark for those who are super fair.  After I brought it home, I noticed that it is quite pink toned, and therefore it makes my skin look slightly off  (I have yellow undertones). I'm quite disappointed by this as it is such a lovely foundation. Hopefully they expand the range in the future.

Is It Worth it?The reason I didn't buy this foundation immediately is because It is quite expensive for a foundation. After buying it, I would say if you can get the perfect colour for your skin tone, then it is 100% worth it. The quality is amazing and the lasting power is incredible. Unfortunately I won't be repurchasing it as it doesn't suit my skin. If they happen to release a colour in the range that suits me I would definitely repurchase it. I do plan on using the bottle I own up though (I hate being wasteful). I tend to put a yellow toned powder over the top and that seems to make it work.
