2014 Favourites - Base Products

A bit late but here are my 2014 favourites! I’m going to have to split these into multiple posts as I had only started getting into make-up properly last year. So I have discovered a lot!


L’Oreal Lumi Magique
I love this primer because it gives me a luminous base without any glitter or shimmer, so I don’t look like a disco ball. When used underneath foundation it gives a beautiful lit from within glow. I also mix this product in with my matte foundations and sometimes use it as a liquid highlight. A multi-use product that is affordable is a plus for me.

Estèe Lauder Double Wear Foundation Review

So before we jump into the post I just want to take a moment to explain my absence. I've had so much work to do for University and I've also been ill so I haven't had any time to blog! After today my schedule should resume to normal or there might be one/two posts a week. So lets jump into the review!

Say hello to my new holy grail foundation. It has taken me ages to try this foundation and I wish I had tried it sooner as it is SO good.

Estée Lauder Double wear is quite a pricey foundation at just under £30 but oh my, it is so worth it. It has a full-coverage matte finish. It isn't a flat matte by any means, it gives the skin a lovely finish. Although it is quite thick as it is a heavy foundation it doesn't feel heavy on my skin at all.

It’s transfer proof, sweat proof and it stays put all day long. It can be quite hard to take it off after a day of wearing it as it sticks a bit like glue, but I want my foundation to last all day.

I can’t rave about this foundation enough. I don’t have oily skin so I can’t comment on oil control but I’m assuming it is designed for oily skin, therefore oil control should be good.

If you’re on the hunt for a new full-coverage foundation I definitely suggest checking out Double Wear. You can go to a counter for a sample and they will colour match you too. She did match me to a colour too dark for me but their lightest shade Shell is the perfect shade for my pale complexion.

Have you tried Estée Lauder Double Wear? What do you think?
