Product Review: Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation & Laura Mercier Lipstick

I am slowly turning to a beauty/makeup junkie, I know! But I can’t resist trying out new products. I love exploring, so the fashion and beauty world is like my playground.  I don’t think I will ever get tired of reviewing products. I can see myself doing this for a very long time……

I reviewed the famous Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in a Rich Cocoa shade some days ago and I have been eager to tell you all about it. I am always in the pursuit of the next best foundation to try. I think the foundation is the base of the makeup, so I think it is very important to pay attention to the base/foundation, so you get the entire makeup right.

Here is what Estee Lauder has to say about this product:

Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10
Keeps skin looking fabulous, breathing comfortably through heat, humidity and activity without changing colour, fading or coming off on clothes. Natural matte finish and SPF10 sunscreen to protect skin.

Creating A Flawless Finish

Image

Every woman desires to have a flawless face. The main issue is creating one. These products will help you achieve a flawless finish:

1. Foundation

A flawless finish begins with a perfect start. So let’s start with the Foundation. I begin my makeup with Mary Kay Foundation and a Mary Kay Foundation Brush. There are so many foundation products in the market, you need to find the perfect one to give your skin an even colour. Also, go for foundations with a good SPF to protect your face from the sun.

Tinted Moisturizers are the lightest foundations and they are great for the summer months. They do not cover spots or blemishes, but they even out the skin tone.

Clinique Moisture Sheer Tint is a good one to try.

Liquid Foundations or fluid foundations give more coverage. You must choose the right one to match your skin tone. I use Mary Kay Liquid Foundation. I have used it for years now and it is perfect for my skin tone. There are so many shades so make sure you test before you buy.

Cream or Stick Foundation is the heaviest foundation and is good for those with a less-than-perfect skin and who love a heavy look.

2. Concealers

I use concealers as my second step in achieving a flawless finish. I apply my Body Shop concealer on top of my foundation with my fingers to cover blemishes and dark circles.

3. Powders: The types of powders are Mineral Powders, Loose Powders and Pressed Powders. Mineral Powders are alternatives to cream or liquid foundations, they give a smooth, natural finish. Loose Powders ensure a long-lasting, matte look while Pressed Powder (which I use) which is the most popular, ensures a soft and smooth flawless finish. I apply my Mary Kay pressed powder with a Mary Kay powder puff.
