First of all I’d like to apologise for my lack of blog posts recently, this has been due to the sheer amount of uni assignments I’ve had in recent weeks which has (sadly) left me little time to work on my blog. But to make up for this, I have a number of new fashion and beauty purchases that I will be sharing and reviewing in the next few weeks so keep an eye out.
When I realised I’d saved up enough Boots points to buy something nice, I decided to try out Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Concealer. Having always used Boi-ing and more recently, Rimmel’s Wake Me Up concealer, I wanted to try out the much raved about Double Wear range to see what all the fuss was about. Since the weather has become colder, my skin doesn’t get as much Vitamin D as it did in the summer and this has definitely had an effect on my skin so a longer lasting concealer was in need anyway.
Before trying this concealer I was worried that it might be slightly drying on my skin or make it feel quite cloggy, but I haven’t found either of these to be a problem. I apply Double Wear over my foundation and blend it in using a concealer brush and for me this really works. I find that it does last all day and is fairly lightweight on my skin so I don’t feel like I have a face full of makeup. That said, I don’t think you could wear this concealer on it’s own without any foundation underneath because it is quite a thick consistency and may not blend into the skin very well on its own. For those of you who are looking for a concealer to wear without a foundation, I would recommend the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer which I have reviewed here.
I bought Estee Lauder’s concealer in a shade 02 (light/medium) but it is also available in eight other shades, so there is a match for all types of skin tones. It also has an SPF of 10 and is oil-free as well as being water, perspiration and humidity-resistant. If you are interested in buying this concealer then pop to your closest Estee Lauder counter for someone to match the perfect colour to your skin tone.
Have you tried any of the Double Wear range?
