Appraised | Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup, Estée Lauder

I know.
My skin is looking better everyday and here I am buying a full coverage foundation.
I have been eyeing Estée Lauder foundations for a little while.  It all started when they launched Invisible Fluid Makeup last summer.

 Before that  I had always thought of Estée Lauder as a mature women's brand.  I now realize that they cater to a variety of women.  They even have blue/purple/green mascara!
And yes,  I do want to buy one of those mascaras. The blue one... Maybe the purple. Or green? I don't know.

Any-who, back to the foundation.

This foundation retails for about $43 (CAD). It is a medium to full coverage foundation.
It has no shimmer, no SPF and comes in a variety of undertones.

I've been wearing this for the past week and have the inkling that this will soon become my holy grail full coverage foundation. I can't say that it is  yet but it's sure climbing to the top.

I realize my eye shadow is looking crazy but it's only because I tried making a video for you.

My colour is 2W2 Rattan.
I absolutely love how yellow this foundation is.

I just can't stop wearing it.
I wear it as a concealer during the week and on weekends I wear a full face.

I'm in love again. I've been finding it really hard to love products lately. And that's why I didn't do February Favourite.
By the way the fragrance I have been wearing all month is called In Love Again. I had no idea it was limited edition. I guess I could have included it in my February Favourites.

Here are some pictures to demonstrate the finish. 
I'm such a model... lol. Sometimes it feels funny posing for these pictures.


It's been a long day and I'm feeling a bit crazy. 
So I wanted to share with you my crazy-smiley-eyes.

The following is the face I make after spending 2.5 hrs making a video only to realize that my eye shadow is uneven.
As I said earlier I tried making a video.
Part of the video was me applying the foundation... Apparently I don't know how to blend.
BTW, would you like me to do the 'No Mirror Make-up Challenge?'

My artistic abilities are sooooo good. I know you thought those glasses were real!

It's bedtime.
Kisses and hugs.

*Random Update*
If you leave this foundation outside, lets say in your car, overnight at -9⁰C it wont freeze.


  1. Oooh I love watching no mirror make up challenges, go for it! On another note I have been searching for the right foundation for ages so I might have a go with the estee lauder one! Thanks for the tip :)

    1. I will have to record one sometime soon! I'm thinking it should be pretty easy for me... I do my everyday make-up while driving (no mirror).

      I think that's illegal. Shh don't tell.

  2. i've been wanting the estee lauder double wear for a while, it seems to be the perfect high coverage foundation - i love the idea of using it as a concealer too, i'll have to try that with my current foundation!

  4. I really want to give double-wear a try but I have been so reluctant to part with my money. hahah. Lovely post. Your artistic abilities are impeccable.

    1. I know what you mean, my heart fluttered a little when I saw the price.
      And thanks! I probably was Picasso in a past life.

  5. Beautiful face! I love estee lauder too! I'm also in shade rattan. I'm a single mother on a tight budget and I can afford it. You desrve it! You can always get samples first.
