I have recently tried the New Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup. Many of you have heard or tried Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation. The original Double Wear is a holy grail formula for MANY people. This new version is a bit different not only in the packaging but in the product as well.
What I love about the new Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup:
- Portability factor. This could easily be dropped in your handbag, gym bag or over night bag.
- Simplicity. Because the cushion is built into the packaging of this foundation you don’t need a brush. It is Makeup + Pro Tool in One.
- 8 hour wear. Who has time to touch up their foundation mid day? This will last the entire workday.
- Hydrating. This is a very comfortable, natural formula.
Here’s my personal feedback from trying this foundation for a few days. I was concerned that too much product would come out of the cushion. It was very easy to control the exact amount. I also was apprehensive that the cushion would provide smooth, streak-free application. I actually was prepared to buff the foundation with a brush after application. I looked closely in my lit, magnified mirror(Superhuman) and NO STREAKS! This little cushion provided perfect application. I also learned it is a buildable coverage. If you want to look natural you can. If you want more coverage just build. The finish was very natural not matte. I LOVE THIS FORMULA. I also love the packaging!
What’s the difference between the original and this new formula??
COVERAGE: Original is Medium/ Buildable, New formula is Sheer- Med/Buildable
LONG-WEAR: Original 15 hours, New formula 8 hours
FINISH: Original is Semi -Matte, New formula is Radiant
Both are great formulas. I will keep both in my foundation drawer for different occasions.
Would I buy it again? YES
Would I recommend it? YES
