Let me be frank: My skin is oily AF. Like, fry up a whole chicken using just the oil from my face kind of oily. In fact, JLO bathed in my face oil for this video:
Now, oily skin has its perks: it keeps you young. That’s right, I look 25, but i’m not! However, when you’re trying to be cute, and you’re just dripping oil every which way, looking a few years younger than your actual age doesn’t really matter.
Enter: Estee Lauder Doublewear Foundation, chiiiiiiiillllllle.
Estee Lauder Doublewear foundation is a medium to full coverage foundation that WILL keep you matte for hours upon hours and hours. Typically I have to blot my face after 30 minutes with any other foundation, with this one, I can go 5-6 hours before showing even the slightest hint of shine.
My color is Rich Cocoa 6C1, however, in the video below I’m wearing 7N1 Deep Amber, a darker shade, perfect for summer months.
Some things to consider:
- This foundation is super matte, like extra matte, like it will start drying on your skin before you finish applying, so move quickly!
- Consider wearing a pore-filling or silicone-based primer on top of your mattifying primer to help give you a smoother finish.
- Do not go anywhere near this foundation if you have dry skin. Try instead, Becca Cosmetics Ultimate coverage complexion creme (buy HERE) and see my review HERE. It’s in the same price range and the color I wear is Mahogany.
