Double wear foundation by Estee Lauder

So in my last blog I mentioned that I had a sample of the Double Wear foundation from Estee Lauder. Now let me just start off by saying this is only my opinion & we may not share the same thoughts on this product.....

I had one major problem with this makeup the shade did not match my skin tone it was in soft tan. My skin had a dusky look to it some places it looked darker/heavier than other places. I did use a MAC 187 brush to apply & maybe I should have used the MAC 190 brush instead. I'm not giving up just yet.....I hear the "Light" series from the same brand is better. So I will be returning to the counter to ask for the shade lighter than she gave me & also try the "light" series. I can say this.....I loved that it lasted all 12hrs of my shift at work. I didn't have to touch up at all. At the end of my shift my face looked as if I had just applied the foundation. I currently use MAC Studio fix fluid foundation in NC40.

So, let me know what your thoughts are on this foundation? Did you like it? How does the shade compare to what you used before? How did you apply it?

Till next time dolls......

MAC Haul

So I bought a few things....some must haves & somethings I've had my eye on......

  1. Blot powder pads - a must have
  2. Tone Grey quad from the Trend fall/winter 09 collection - Really excited about this quad haven't had a chance to play with it yet but, from the looks of it, it just might be the color for winter
  3. Studio fix fluid - a must have
  4. Studio finish concealer - a must have
  5. Lancome Oscillation powerbooster - I've had my eyes on this since it came out but, just couldn't see myself dishing out $40 bucks for a vibrating mascara primer but I was sold after seeing some many peeps with BEAUTIFUL eyelashes....... review coming soon 
  6. Dior Diorshow mascara - Mascara is always a must have but, this is my first time trying Dior I 've always used MAC but, it was time for a change & i have a bestie who swears by Dior so I'm giving it a coming soon
  7. MAC Dazzleglass in "girls delight" - if there's anything that's more addicitng than a dazzleglass someone please let me know
  I also got a sample of Estee Lauder double wear 15hr foundation I'll make it a point to wear it around the house & to work give you a review real soon.......Hope you have a great week Dolls!!!!
