I’ve been using Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Foundation for 2/3 years now. I’ve tried everything in the past from Dream Matt Mousse to Mac Studio Fix. Double wear is by far the lightest, least cakey, best coverage and best value for money of them all. For £28 I can purchase a 30ml bottle which can last me up to 6 months!!
I vary the shades I use. Sometimes I opt for an everyday look that matches my skin tone (Fresco) and other days o use a darker/bolder ‘Pure Beige’. I find the coverage and all day stay in place fantastic. I still find that it is heavier than I would like although a great deal lighter than Mac which a studio foundation.
So… I wanted to try a lighter foundation and I’ve seen some amazing reviews on Rimmel London’s BB Cream.
So I’m now using ‘Matte’ spf15 in ‘light’. And I’m really impressed! For a cheap (£7.99) drugstore foundation, the coverage is brilliant. I wouldn’t wear it out to dinner or a party but as an everyday foundation Mon-Fri. It’s perfect! My skin feels and looks very natural. So far it seems quite buildable (although I haven’t played around with it too much yet).
For the price; I highly recommend this product.
