I was super excited to finally try the holy grail of foundation Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation ($46.00) the foundation I have heard so many rave reviews about. Since it was my first time trying, I thought I should also try their new Double Wear Concealer for the ultimate Estee Lauder look.

Double Wear Waterproof Concealer in 3W Medium (Warm)
My first impression of the Double Wear foundation was how smooth the formula was on my skin. It didn’t take much for me to have full coverage thanks to the thick but still lightweight the formula. The foundation promises a full 15 hour transfer resistant wear and an SPF10 for extra protection.
The concealer, which is waterproof promises a 24 hour wear resistant to heat and humidity. Perfect for those 30 C days. The concealer had a very liquid consistency and set pretty fast after applying.
I decided to try the foundation concealer combination on a hot day when I would be outside. It was hot, humid, and sweaty. When I looked in the mirror I expected my foundation to be streaky. To my surprise I looked in the mirror and everything was in tact! My foundation looked like it has been freshly applied. The concealer was bright as ever making my under-eyes look wide awake.
I had a very eventful day, and had worn the foundation for almost 10 hours and it still looked freshly applied. I did not even need a touch up!
This foundation is great if you are working long hours and don’t have time for a touch-up in between. No wonder it’s everyone’s go to foundation!
