New Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup

IMG_1316 (2)

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.

IMG_1316

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.

IMG_1315

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

Viseart eyeshadow palette review

When someone mentions the Viseart eyeshadow palette to people that have heard of Viseart, one of the first questions that comes up is:  Is it worth it?  I promise to let you know if it’s worth it, but first let me introduce you to Viseart and an eyeshadow palette.

Viseart cosmetics is an independent professional make-up  cosmetic brand from Paris, France.

Here is my first palette:

IMG_6549

This is the Neutral Matte palette($80) contains 12 great shades that will provide a lot of options for you.  All of the shadows are Matte.  The quality and pigmentation of these shadows is amazing.  There is no fall out from the shadows and they are extremely blendable which is very exciting.  The shadow texture is wonderful.

IMG_6547

This palette will provide from natural to dramatic looks.  The only limit is your imagination.

IMG_6548

Viseart does make other palettes.  Some are mattes, some have shimmers.  They are sold on Sephora.com and Beautylish.com to name a few places.  Viseart makes palettes for eyes, lips and concealers,  correctors, blushes, powders and foundations as well.

I hope you love the Viseart palette as much as I do.  There will be more Viseart in my future.  Go ahead and add it to your wish list!  Thank me later.
