Don’t we all wish for glowing dewy skin? Skin which looks super fresh and radiating without using too much product? You might find that product which will give you this look but will it last long enough is another big question. I’ve sampled several products and they have delivered the natural look to perfection but the biggest drawback is the number of hours its lasts! All foundations after a certain number of hours tend to disappear quite quickly because it transfers everywhere. Sometimes on my Iphone, my office phone, imagine if I was wearing a coat or scarf it would transfer all over the collar. But Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick was pretty tempting with the promise of eight hours of wear without transferring or fading out.
It’s available in beautiful creamy nude shades that provide a healthy glow. Plus let’s not forget the cushion packaging. I love swipe and go foundations! You can even say I’m obsessed with them. I’m one for swiping a bit of foundation down the sides of my nose and blending outward and down around my jawline. That’s my foundation application method, nothing more, nothing less. I don’t apply any on my forehead and I’m not one for applying layers and layers for coverage as I simply don’t need it since my skin is quite clear. My method of madness when it comes to foundation is I want something to brighten up my complexion and ease my dullness.Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick seemed like exactly what I needed plus it had a hydrating formula for my drier skin.
The twist-up stick foundation with a sponge head is very easy to use. The liquid is dispersed through a small hole in the sponge and can then be immediately buffed over the face. No need for a separate brush. You literally need to twist it half a click for an adequate amount of foundation to appear. Buff it over the face and then turn the end again to produce enough foundation for another layer. Don’t click the end too much as you’ll be left with loads of product which is impossible to blend in naturally.
The finish of the foundation is beautiful. A natural radiant satin, which provides an undetectable coverage. Skin looks flawless but not caked and skin is evened out well without a serious camouflage. It applies in a medium cover creamy texture but after buffing it absorbs well with no greasy residue. Would be perfect for a dry to combination skin. It’s an oil-free foundation so would still be suitable for an oily skin, however you may like to apply a dusting of powder over just to take off any unwanted sheen.
Overall it’s a very adaptable foundation as it can be built up for a fuller cover or dabbed on key points of the face for a minimal cover. If you are someone who likes to do their makeup on the go then this is the one for you!
