Trustworthy Makeup: Trusty Foundation

Trustworthy Makeup - Trusty Foundation Estee Lauder Double Wear. When you cover over 90% of your face with foundation, you expect it to make your skin flawless without causing any breakouts. Estee Lauder double wear foundation is one of the foundations that give full coverage without messing up the skin.

When you cover over 90% of your face with one product, you sure want it to be good, don’t you? Yes, we are talking about foundations. There are so many foundations in the market starting from as low as a few pound to over one hundred pound. If someone asked you which is your trusty foundation, what would be your answer? 

It is normal to get lost when there are so many choices. We are living in a consumer society! So, many choices and unnecessary purchases. Do you feel guilty getting things you don’t actually need? Skincare and foundation are two things that play important role in a good looking skin. You can’t expect your foundation to look flawless when you don’t look after your skin. It is also the other way around too.

Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation has been the ultimate favourite and the trusty foundation which I know I could always rely on. It gives full coverage and airbrushed finish without feeling heavy on the skin. It lasts for hours even on oily skin. If you have oily skin, then you know the struggle of finding a good long lasting foundation. I don’t know if it actually stays 15 hours, but I can confirm that it stays longer than MAC Pro Long Wear foundation which is supposed to stay up to 15 hours. One of the things they could do to improve is adding a pump. You might end up pouring more than you should when you don’t pay attention.

When my skin is acting up, in order to get that perfect base, I apply a few drops of Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair then this foundation applies flawlessly. Having dry flakes is not good as the foundation will cling on these bits, so make sure to have a good base before starting with a full coverage base.

If you are looking for a full coverage and natural matte looking foundation then you should definitely check this out. Yes, it is a bit on the pricey side, but you only need a little to cover the whole face so this 30 ml bottle would last quite a while.

Which would be your trusty foundation? Is there any product that you know no matter what happens it will always make your skin look good?

  • I have heard so much about this foundation so was glad to see it here too. I would love to try it and think I’m going to get this one next. Gemma x

  • My trusty foundation was MAC Studio Sculpt, it made me skin look so flawless. However, now that my skin is dehydrated and really dry, it tends to cake up. I know I should swith my foundation, but I am a bit clueless. For years I bought foundations for people with oily skin, I have no idea where to start now.

  • My best friend constantly raves about this and is always like Trishna, you need it in your life but I’m not a foundation lover, only for parties etc, but I guess if there was one I would keep aside for events such as those, I might just have to go and purchase it for that ‘keep aside’ date :P. Have a lovely week 🙂

  • Oh so is the Double Wear good for combination/oily skins? I’ve been really tempted to try it out since it’s so raved about in the blogging world, but I thought maybe it wouldn’t keep my face matte. Would you confirm it’s a good one even for oilier skins? 🙂

  • Ok, I know this isn’t what you’ve written about, but that photo is beautiful, you captured that foundation in such a unique way– you definitely have an eye for composition. As for the foundation, it definitely sounds excellent, one thing I am not is a makeup connoisseur, so I always love hearing about good products–especially foundation! xx

  • I like DW Light because I find the original DW too matte for my skin. My trusty foundation would either be Armani Luminous Silk or a recent discovery – Milani 2 in 1 foundation & concealer xx

  • Double Wear is also my trusty foundation. I find a dime-sized amount is enough to do my whole face! I still haven’t finished half the bottle yet.

  • This foundation has been on my to buy list for so long.. considering this is matte and long wearing I could wait till summer to give this a try.

  • My mum swears by this and she’s been using it for years but it’s not for me. On my skin this looks really cakey despite how little I use. I do know this is a cult favourite so it’s no wonder you love it too.

    I’m actually really tempted to try this makeup. I keep seeing so many reviews about it.

  • Double Wear is my number 1! I love the stuff and trust it completely!

  • Double Wear looks really heavy and thick on me, I think if I mixed it with an oil it would look a lot nicer, but I actually prefer Double Wear Light. It still lasts but it is a much thinner, lightweight formula that doesn’t feel so much like foundation, for me at least. I know so many people swear by DW though so it could just be me, great post! Xx

  • This seems like such a great foundation, mainly since you’ve mentioned how much longer it lasts compared to MAC’s pro long wear, which I have heard is pretty good! I don’t understand why most foundations that are in glass bottles don’t have pumps, it’s so annoying because you have to be extra cautious to not waste any extra product. The one I’m currently using by Mineral Fusion also doesn’t have a pump, but it works so well for my ultra sensitive skin that I just deal with it, lol. Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you’re having a great week so far!



  • this is my fail safe, event or long day foundation! Such a good coverage and staying power 🙂

    Sincerely, Sarah xx

  • I can’t believe I still haven’t tried this foundation 🙂 But as my skin has changed and I seem not to like very matte foundations anymore I don’t know if I liked it, I should ask for a sample and check it out. x

  • I have yet to try Lancome! Currently I use Channel, but as you mentioned so many on the market that I know when I was on the hunt for the perfect foundation it was hard for me to narrow down my choices. I do feel guilty time to time getting things that I know I’ll only maybe use a few times, and try and limit those purchases as often as I can. When my Channel foundation is finished I will try this one since u mentioned it’s good for oily skin. Thanks for sharing another awesome review Ela 🙂

  • It sounds like a wonderful product! 🙂 I really don’t get too adventurous with my foundation choices, I used one for years and only recently switched to the bodyshop one. I rarely wear makeup though, most of the time it’s just a BB cream I wear so I don’t like to spend too much on makeup I rarely use.

    Hope you’re having a great week 🙂

  • I definitely agree it’s important to moisturize before applying your foundation. I use bare minerals powder foundation. But Estee Lauder is a great brand too!

    I like the coverage this foundation gives, but I found it to be very drying on my skin, even with a moisturizer. x I can’t wear it for more than a couple of days in a row, because I just end up with so many breakouts. It does give a pretty nice finish though, and I like to use it for special events. x x


  • I have been looking for a foundation a good one and have failed . . . I have yet to try this one maybe I will pick it up this weekend.

  • I’ve always heard great things about this foundation. Need to try soon!

    xoxo, Christina

  • I am totally going to have to try this one! To be honest I really don’t have a trusty foundation at the moment and I am on the hunt for one. Every foundation I get I think it’s just ‘okay’. Nothing really makes me satisfied. If this one is as good as you say it is, I definitely want to give it a go!


  • Carina Vardie

    I am definitely guilty of buying unnecessary stuff, but I still wouldn’t say I have a trusty foundation. However my go to base is the Gosh BB cream. Need to try this foundation.


  • Double wear has for a long time been my trusty foundation as well! It just covers everything, lasts all day and promises that you’ll look your best! I recently run out of it however, so I’ll definitely have to repurchase this one!

  • I have heard nothing but glorious things about that foundation! I tried to take the easy route and order it online, but the shade was off. I have to get in the store and get matched. I could tell the formula is excellent.

  • Thanks for sharing this foundation! I have never tried this one before. I am almost done with my Laura Mercier foundation so I need to check this out.

  • Molly Hogan

    I’ve been looking for a new foundation! I’ll have to try this.


  • Katie

    Despite all the hype I somehow haven’t tried this yet! I love full coverage so I definitely need to in the future x

  • I have heard great things about this foundation, I want to try it

  • My skin is pretty darn oily so this foundation might be a good pick for me! I like how you said a natural matte finish. Thanks for ze review x

  • This foundation sounds so fabulous, especially when paired with the Advanced Night Repair. I will have to try it!

  • This looks like an incredible foundation, must try it to find out.

  • Ellie Adams

    I haven’t used this is such a long time but when my skin used to play up, this was my hero when I was younger. Such a fab post!


  • I bought that one and wore it for a full day for the first time last Saturday. I found it settled in my pores, something I haven´t experienced with other foundations. Maybe it was the concealer I used though, not sure yet. Have you had that issue?

  • I’ve tried a couple of deluxe samples of this foundation and found it really good, but unfortunately here in Italy there’s a limited shade range and I couldn’t find any light shades with a warm undertone.

  • I have heard so many great things about this product but haven’t tried it yet. I’ll remember about it when my skin plays up next time.

  • I used to wear this foundation a few years ago and loved it too!

  • Nice Review. I am really looking for a foundation which gives a full coverage with a matte finish. I will definitely give it a try.

  • I have wanted to try this for ages! My mum wears it! Might steal hers to see if I like it! Thanks for the fab review hun!

    This is definitely on my wishlist and once I am finish my other foundations and I am try this out 🙂 Love the sound of full coverage!

  • Estee Lauder Double Wear is definitely in my wishlist since my mom used to wear this. She touted this as the best foundation in her life, and I can see why since many people claim the similar things.

  • Estee Lauder products are always trustworthy in my book! I’ve been using a foundation from Lancome that I really like!


  • I’ve seen lots of Estee Lauder products being reviewed as one of the best brands. I would love to try this when I wear make up someday. Haha!

    Lovely review btw.

    Love, Fads

  • This didn’t work for me personally when I tried out a sample, but I do know that so many people swear by it. Lately I have been all about minimal coverage so I use my trusty MAC Pro Longwear Concealer along with some BareMinerals Pro Powder foundation in the areas that need some coverage x

  • Never tried this one before… but everyone is so raving about it and I think I need to give a try…

  • I would love to try this foundation! I’m always looking for a better product; maybe this could be the perfect one for me.


  • I have wanted to try this foundation in forever, but I worry how it will work with my skin!

  • I used to use this foundation when my skin was a lot worse, and found it found it hugged any dry patches of skin quite badly. Having said that, now my skin has improved I’d definitely be willing to give it another go with the addition this time of applying a few drops of their Night Repair serum! Great review Ela 🙂
