Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup Review
Today I am going to review a foundation. Not just a foundation, A very Hyped & Famous Foundation. It is very famous specially on YouTube Makeup gurus Community and They are the reason, I bought this Foundation and It is Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup Foundation.
So Lets jump in to the review of this luxurious baby.

Won't change color, smudge or come off on clothes. Feels lightweight and comfortable.

My experience with Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup:
I bought this for my sister for her wedding day because I want a long stay foundation So she didn't had to touch up again and again. Then I searched and most of makeup gurus recommend this foundation. So start off with the PACKAGING. It comes in glass bottle with gold cap. It doesn't come up with a pump to take out genuine amount of foundation. And it is also unhygienic & paying 3k bucks and getting just a foundation bottle without any pump thing is a big con for me. But bottle looks very luxurious :P
So My sister's shade is 3W1 Tawny and It looks bit lighter on her hand because we both sister are not blessed with even skin tone or you could say our hands are way darker than face color. But It matches her face a neck skin pretty well.
The CONSISTENCY is little bit thicker than maybelline Matte me + poreless foundation which I will review soon. But little amount foundation can covers up face most flaws very well. It has completely Matte Finish & It was a boon for her Because she has extremely oil skin. It can be bulit upto medium to high coverage. It can cover up the dark circles not very dark circles without any color correction.
I apply two layers of foundation on my sister's face to get high coverage. At first, lt looks way to cakey & white on her skin But when It mixed up with her natural skin oil then It looks amazing on her face. So in my opinion It takes time to look normal/flawless or may be I didn't blended well.
It has SPF 10, So I was worried if she looks white in her flash photography. Again I was wrong on this point too. Trust me, My sister's pics came out really good and beautiful Even The lightening in Marriage hall was extremely Bad. It gives her HD face & everyone just giving here compliments. SO Yes, It is a CAMERA PROOF foundation.
Well, Estee lauder claims it can stay upto 15 hrs. Ummm! No Not in my sister's case. Her Face started become oily after 6 hrs as I told you before she produce gallons of oil from her face :D Specially from her T-Zone then I gave her blotting paper. Foundation was on the place but too much oil from her face and using blotting paper made fading of foundation after 9 hrs.
Overall, I quite impressed with the foundation except the oil factor If I used a good primer underneath the foundation then It can be give different result. So primer is key for flawless skin. So Invest in a good primer and about the foundation. Will I recommend ??
Yes, I will for Normal skin definitely and a good moisturising primer for Dry skin and Oil control primer for oily skin.
