So a friend of mine gave me a sample of Estee Lauder Double Wear. I've had it a while but was put off simply b/c I haven't used a liquid foundation in years. I decided what the hell yesterday and it was so awesome that I bought it last night and used it again today.

I have never been happier with a foundation. I tried using my MAC foundation brush but it really went on better with my fingers. I always use a moisturizer (Clinique Dramatically Different Gel) then Smashbox primer. I thought 2 months ago that I had discovered the best thing with the MAC followed by MUFE Duo Mat but this is unbelievable. You have to do it rather quickly or it starts to set, so I applied to smaller areas instead of my whole face at once. It's buildable, but really one application was more than enough. I'd call it medium to full coverage. The color is a perfect match and it kept my super oily tzone totally matte until around 3pm when I dusted with powder but it didn't settle in my rather large pores on my cheeks or in my fine lines around my eyes. It stayed put from 7am-9pm. Looked fantastic. No color change after a few hours either. It doesn't look or feel mask-like at all though it does feel different. It's just beautiful coverage and lives up to it's name. I had 4 people at work compliment my face today. That never happens. Anyway had to share this awesome find. I am so happy I finally tried that sample.

The only thing I could find to complain about is that I wish it had a pump and it's not cheap.
