The holy grail

The holy grail

Finding the right foundation can often times feel like an endless cycle of trial and error. Besides the coverage and the shade, there are a zillion other variables that you need to take into consideration before picking the right base for your “beat”.

You won’t believe the number of times I left the house either looking related to an oompa loompa or Casper the friendly ghost. On top of that, you never really know how your skin will react to the product. Unless you’re one of those people that leads an organic lifestyle and is glutenfree, sugerfree, diary-free (so basically joy-free), it’s really hard to find something solely made of mother nature to smear on your face. But, my dear buttercups, miracles do still exist. After finally deciding to put on my big girl panties and buy my first (!) high-end foundation, I can honestly say my make-up routine has drastically improved.

Behold the Estée lauder double wear stay-in-place make-up the closest I’ve come to the perfect foundation. I have combination/oily skin with the occasional dry patch, and this one just works wonders on my face. Even though I prefer a more dewy look, I really wanted the benefit of having full-coverage without building layers. As for the staying-in-place part, it really does last a long time for it to come off. I’m the girl who rarely washes off her make-up before going to bed (yes, it’s gross, I’m disgusting, forgive me for I have sinned, but most likely will continue sinning) and it still looks bomb the morning after.



The packaging is in my opinion the only thing that could use some improving. It’s 2017 and we use pumps now Estée lauder, get it together please. To conclude our review, if you’re looking for a foundation that doesn’t fade and covers every little pore, look no more.

Give it a try and tell us what you think and/or how it worked for you! Until next time buttercups!
