Estee Lauder is one of the cult favorites that has been around for ages! They launched their Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Foundation sometime last year and I am just now getting my hands on them to finally try it out. If you are into the dewy skin look, then you are in for a treat! It claims to instantly hydrate and leave skin with a radiant glow lasting up to 8 hours.
It comes in a array of shades to choose from (20 to be exact) to find your perfect match.
The packaging is very appealing, I love the gold details, and how light they are especially for traveling purposes.
The two colors I felt that were the best match for me was in between the “Honey Bronze” and “Rich Ginger”.
I have a strong tan here , but as you can see “Rich Ginger” would suit me best, but when I’m not so tan (aka pale as helll ) the “Honey Bronze” works best.
When using this foundation you would need to pull the gold cap off and slowly and twist the base of the stick until the foundation disperses. You can easily apply the foundation wherever needed and blend in with the cushion applicator.
These were my before and after results using ONLY the foundation. It absorbs well, but I have super oily skin and I was not a fan of the dewy look. You can set the foundation with powder if you prefer the Matte look like me.
My main drawback besides the dewy look would be the cushion applicator, I have acne prone skin and that would be a concern of mine worrying about the bacteria on it. Although it is removable and can be washed out to ensure that it remains bacteria free.
Retailing for $40 which is pretty average for a name brand foundation, but if you’re interested in checking out their foundation check out Estee Lauder’s site, or if you already have it I would love to know your thoughts!
