F A V O U R I T E F O U N D A T I O N:

Estee Lauder double wear foundation has been highly talked about for a long time now, by the YouTube, Instagram and blogging beauty related community, I had heard excellent things about this foundation and watched multiple video reviews, read countless blog posts regarding and even scrolled the hashtag on occasion.

So in early January when I was in Sydney city with my Mother and Nanna visiting the Art Gallery of New South Wales, I knew that this would be a perfect opportunity to visit the newly built Sephora on Pitt Street and visit my favourite Myer in the world on Pitt Street. I picked up the foundation after being colour matched and was desperate to try it out.

The shade was completely wrong for me is the least I can say about this first encounter with the highly sought after Double Wear, it was far too dark for me, even when I am darkest fake tan. To give you an indication of my natural colour, when purchasing a cheaper foundation with a limited shade range, I am almost always with very little exception the lightest shade. ”Ivory” is usually how my skin is described.

So this was initially very disappointed and felt like a bit of a waste of $50. However, even when wearing the ludicrously dark foundation I couldn’t help but feel like I had fallen slightly in love with a bottle of coloured liquid.

So after having a truly awful week in my personal life, I decided that the perfect pick me up would be getting this foundation in the correct shade for my skin when slightly fake tanned, so that I can mix the darker and lighter together, bit of a pick your adventure kind of concept but with foundation!

Safe to say, this is easily my favourite foundation I have ever used, not for flash photography, but for general usage, it’s beautiful and perfect for my taste and skin type. I adore this and would completely recommend it for someone with normal and oily tendencies, I honestly have no idea how it would treat dry skinned girls, sorry ladies.


  • Build-able coverage
  • Little to no scent on the face
  • Large colour selection
  • Works well with sponge and brush application
  • Very long wearing
  • Does not accentuate pores or imperfections
  • Easily accessible at almost every Myer or David Jones


  • $50AUD (worth every cent in my opinion)
  • Does not have a pump (MAC pumps fit on top)
  • Glass bottle, I am very clumsy.
