Do you remember my holy grail foundation of all time? If you’re thinking of Estée Lauder, then you are on the right track! It’s the Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup liquid foundation! If you think that it’s too messy and troublesome to bring along, you can now do so with Estée Lauder’s new compact – Double Wear Makeup To Go Liquid Compact!
With an impressive 8-hour wear, the Double Wear formula goes a long way for women on the go, especially working office ladies.
The foundation is a multi-action formula that features its long-wearing properties, with an infused hydrating and smoothing complex, all packed in an easy-to-travel dark blue compact. The key ingredients include:
- Tri-Moisture Complex of Hyaluronic Acid, Glycerin, Muru Muru Butter – replenishes moisture and locks in hydration for the skin
- Skin Smoothing Complex of Argireline & Milk Thistle Extract – minimise appearance of wrinkles and fine lines for a effortlessly flawless complexion
The compact also comes with a makeup sponge. I’ve tried using the sponge but I feel that it absorbs more product than it does in helping me to spread onto my skin. I prefer using my buffing brush for this. No doubt, the sponge is essential in helping to absorb any accidental spillage/excess liquid, but I feel that it’s not as functional as it’s supposed to be.
Effortlessly with the push of a button, the liquid foundation is being dispensed onto the centre of the compact. You’re supposed to press once for light coverage, and twice for medium coverage. With such a creative innovation, you no longer need to worry about having your foundation spill/crack in your bag! It’s so portable and spill-proof!
Formula-wise, I love it, especially how hydrating it feels on my skin. The previous Double Wear formula wow-ed me with its non-oily and lasting finish which I really enjoyed (and am still enjoying) and this one’s no different!
However, in terms of coverage, I would say that this has less coverage than the Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup. I find that after 2 layers, I still could see several red acne spots on my skin that’s not totally concealed. Pardon the crazy redness on my skin because it’s reacting badly towards the immense haze here.
Anyway, see the beautiful illustration on my compact? It’s an exclusive collaboration with popular Singapore fashion illustrator Grace Ciao! She is a talent, especially in creating fashion illustrations with flower petals. She has come up with three whimsical illustrations to adorn the NEW Double Wear Makeup To Go Liquid Compact – Classy Chic, Hollywood Glamour and Modern Romantic.
There are 50 hand-illustrated pieces available for pre-orders between 15 to 28 October 2015, while stock lasts. For more information, please check out Estée Lauder Singapore’s Facebook page.
The Double Wear Makeup To Go Liquid Compact retails for S$68, in all Estée Lauder Singapore boutiques and counters.
