Looking for a long-lasting base that loves your skin? Try Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Stay-in-Place Liquid Foundation.
Who here doesn't have a crazy, busy schedule, raise your hand. Yeah, I thought so. We all do. We get up early in the morning, stagger into the bathroom, slap on some makeup, chug a cup of coffee and run out the door. The very last thing you need to happen to you is to have your makeup quit on you in the middle of the day. Which happened to me recently and it was awful.
I applied my makeup early in the morning like I normally do, then ran out the door. Just before a lunch meeting, I flicked open my makeup mirror to touch up my lippie and noticed that my foundation more or less vanished. What was once a glowing complexion was now an uneven one. I don’t carry a makeup bag bursting with products, so I just made the best of it, and tried not to let it psych me out.
When I heard about the opportunity to road test Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Foundation via Sway from Conde Nast, I jumped at the chance. I walked into Macy’s in Herald Square and made a beeline for the Estee Lauder counter. After a quick consultation, I decided to try the liquid foundation. Thank you Estee Lauder and Sway from Conde Nast for providing me with this stellar opportunity and product! As you can see from the before and after photos, my skin looks healthier. I look like I’ve either slept well or came back from a weekend trip. I have a glow, my skin tone is even and it looks like me, not like I’m wearing foundation.
Before is on the left, the after is on the right. Notice that my skin looks rosier and healthier too.
And that’s one of the things I like the most about the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Liquid Foundation, it’s kind to your skin. It’s safe for sensitive skin, oil-and fragrance free, been tested by a dermatologist, and it is non-acnegenic (you won’t break out from it). The other major, major plus is that my skin didn’t feel like it was weighed down by product. Have you ever tried on a base and suddenly you feel like you’re wearing a mask? No one likes that. This stuff is uber light!
Shortly after I bought it, I went to a friend’s birthday party. Jonathan and Judy are fabulous people. They’re incredibly smart, warm, fun to be around, and great singers. They’re also known for their parties. They last for hours because people end up having great conversations (and singing) and well, they’re so much fun.
Don't do a selfie when you're holding food with one hand. Me, gaining sustenance after getting lost. I do look great--I mean, my makeup does!
Jonathan’s birthday started out at a chic lounge, and then progressed to a comfy bar where there was actually enough room for everyone to sit down. Looking at me, you would never guess that I walked a mile (or two) in freezing temps and wind. Yes, I got lost. I’m in New York City, and on my way to meet up with everyone, I took a wrong turn and ended up by the river. 30 minutes later, I’m warm at the place with everyone else. More importantly, look at how my makeup held up. Amaze, right! The Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Liquid Foundation didn’t smudge through wind or freezing temps! I look alert, glowing, and alive (and yes, hungry).
When I got home my feet hated me, but I still looked gorgeous. And isn’t that what you want? To look gorgeous no matter what the weather! If you run, run, run, you want a foundation that doesn't! You want to look great no matter what's going on--Like trying to find an address when you're geographically challenged.
If you do decide to pick up this miracle product--good news! There's a great gift with purchase. You'll get a makeup bag designed by Lisa Perry. Inside are 6 essential skin care products and makeup from Estee Lauder.
