Earlier this year, in the summer, I kept hearing about this new Estee Lauder foundation, so I stopped by a counter and picked up a couple samples of it. This is an anti-aging foundation.
Instantly brighten skin with this innovative formula from Estée Lauder. Recommended for all skin types, it reduces the look of lines, nourishes with oil-free hydration, and creates a radiant finish.
The samples I chose are 2W1 Dawn, and 2C1 Pure Beige. To be honest, these were such close matches to my skin tone that I can easily switch them up without a problem.
This foundation has many positive attributes. It does provide a radiant finish. What I really appreciate is that it looks like skin. It doesn’t look cakey or fake when it is built up for more coverage; however, it is not full coverage like Estee Lauder Double Wear (not a problem for me, as I prefer sheer to medium foundations). This is a medium coverage foundation that is easily sheered out. The texture is nice too- it’s very soft and silky.
Perfectionist in 3N1, 2W1, 2C1, NARS Sheer Glow, CoverGirl TruBlend Medium 3, Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation in Medium Ivory.
I think this foundation is nice, but it just didn’t wow me. I didn’t find that it wore very well on me throughout the day, as it began to look patchy around the 5-hour mark. This also has a strong scent that fades with application. Personally, this doesn’t bother me, but those sensitive to scents may not like that.
If you’re near a counter, it is worth trying a sample if you’re in the market for a new foundation. My skin didn’t have any reactions to it, and it doesn’t feel heavy. 🙂
Have you tried this? What new foundations have you tried lately?
