Double Wear is what I believe people call the 'bloggers foundation'. Well I've not heard anyone call it that, but they should. I must be the last blogger around to try this (am I not?) so when I was walking around Debenhams in Dublin, I found myself browsing at the Estee Lauder counter and spotted the foundation and immediately wanted to try it out.
Not only did this foundation appeal to me because of it's reputation, but what it states it does- stays in place, lightweight, has SPF10 and won't clog pores- yes please. Also, the shade range appealed to me and the fact they match your shade to your neck, thank the lord some people have cracked it. Orange line, be gone.
So I bought it and tried it out a few weeks ago. After applying my primer (girls, primers are like your underwear, you just need them for some outfits- haha, some) I reached for my trusty Real Techniques buffing brush and tipped some Double Wear onto my hand and dotted it around my face with the brush then started to blend. The blending was so easy, you could say it was idiot proof. The tipping of the product out of the bottle, not so idiot proof. However, it does need to be blended in quickly, it dries pretty quickly. After I had applied one layer I noticed my freckles were covered and any pimples I had. As I was wearing it to a party, I decided to do two layers and my gosh, this finish is amazing.
(I know I'm awful at taking selfies, and the lighting is different but I'm trying to improve, okay?)
The coverage is medium, matte and flawless. It lasts all day, that is true and I only needed to add some powder throughout the day because there is no foundation that'll keep my oily skin at bay, let me tell you. I have worn this a few times now and it has become my new bestie. But Boujrois will always have a place in my heart because, hello, student beauty blogger here. This was a real treat for me to buy myself, plus Debenhams had 10% off, winning.
If you are in search of a high-end foundation to save for special occasions, this is the one. No regrets spending what would've been 5 hours of work in Next on a foundation, absolutely none.
