The best foundation for oily skin- Estee Louder Double Wear

By 11:58

  Which foundation is best for oily skin? My answer, without too much thinking, is Estee Lauder Double wear. I have discovered this one nearly two years ago and since it's my holy grail. If you are one of those people who wakes up in the morning shining bright like a diamond this may be your holy grail too. As you may conclude my skin is oily and loves to break out. So if you recognise yourself in these previous sentences you should definitely try this one out.

  Double Wear is high-end foundation that comes in 42 shades so you shouldn't have a problem with finding one that matches your skin tone. Coverage is medium to high and you can build ti perfectly without looking cake-y. But you will need to prime your skin. As this foundation is thick and dries quickly, it's important to use primer. The formula is extremely long lasting. You can pull all day without any problems. On my T- zone it stays perfectly from 8 to 10 hours and on cheeks even longer. As I mentioned before, it dries quickly so it is best to apply it with beauty blender and it's really important to apply a thin layer. With matt finish and medium to full coverage I expected it to be heavy, but surprisingly it is not. At first it can be a little uncomfortable for about 20 minutes, but when it sits on your skin you don't feel it anymore. Another pro of this beauty is a small amount of product you need, so one bottle lasts me for about 8 months. The only negative thing is packaging. The bottle is really beautiful and it has that high-end sophisticated look, but it comes without any applicator. You get used to it, but when you pay almost 40 bucks it would be nice to have an applicator. Although Clinique foundation pump fits on the bottle that is not a very convenient solution, but it's good to know. Anyways, except applicator thing this foundation is real lifesaver for us oily people. With this one you don't have to worry about leaving your brown- beige fingerprints on everything you touch. It's perfect one for long exhausting days or crazy nights out, bit more wintery than for summer, but it also finds its use during hot season. If you haven't tried it jet I highly recommend it. It is really worth every dollar. Thank you Estee Lauder.

  Btw, in this article from BuzzFeed is said that you can buy professional size foundation from eBay beauty sellers for a lot cheaper. A one-ounce bottle of Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation is $40 in the stores and the 6.7-ounce professional size is $80 on eBay. I personally haven't tried this one out so I can't recommend it, but if anyone tries please share your experience with me.  

In the meantime you can purchase it on Estee Lauder official site or on Sephora site.
