So I recently caved in and bought El's Double Wear foundation and I think it covers great!
My only problems with this foundation are:
1). The pinkest shade is still too yellow for my skintone.
2). The foundation can be a little drying on some areas of my face.
3). Most of my setting powders only accentuate dryness on some days when I use this foundation (which setting powders do you think would work best?)
4). Even when using Monistat as a primer, after about 8 hours, the foundation begins to come off of my nose area (my t-zone is very oily).
5). The price.
Like I said i'm using Monistat as a primer, and right now i'm using the Translucent Loose Setting powder by N.Y.C.
I'm moisturizing with Derma-e Vitamin A Retinyl Palmitate Wrinkle Treatment CrÃ¨me
I've been applying the foundation with my fingers, the powder with my ELF Studio Powder Brush (and sometimes ELF Mineral Kabuki).
I really like this foundation since it doesn't transfer, covers 90% of my blemishes and I don't have that horrible shiny look within 2 hours.
I'd hate to switch, but I don't want to look like I didn't put makeup on my nose, or have dry patches on my face.
I've heard that Studio Sculpt by MAC is a dewier dupe for this since they both have great coverage but different finishes. Is this true?
Can anybody help me out here ;(?
