Estee Lauder is one of the biggest brands in the beauty industry. Owning more than 8 brands including Origins, MAC, Bobbi Brown, Aveda, Estee Lauder makes sure to produce nothing but the best quality product for its consumers. I am a loyal EL cosmetics user and am thoroughly impressed with almost all of their products. The most recent of my purchases has been the Double Wear Concealer. It has completely changed the way I use concealer in my makeup routine.
The Double Wear line from Estee Lauder is formulated to stay in place for 16 or more hours. It is a formula with a matte finish and gives full coverage to the skin. The most amazing thing about Double Wear is that is leaves your face looking flawless, natural and not "cakey". It blends wonderfully and gives you the most perfect makeup finish ever.
The Double Wear Concealer I purchased is one of the newer released products. Originally it came in a tube with a wand applicator. The newer product it is in a small circular compact. I love how simple the packaging is- featuring the signature dark, navy blue color and a simple Estee Lauder monogram on the front.
The concealer itself is much creamier than the liquid version- which was thinner. This creamy concealer gives AMAZING coverage. A little bit goes such a long way. At first it reminded me of the BOING Concealer by Benefit, but that one is pretty dry. Double Wear warms to your touch and blends incredibly easy under the eyes. It looks so effortless and natural.
NOTE: If you find that your concealer is still a bit dry while applying it- including Double wear- add a little but of silicon based serum to make it creamier AND help reduce the look of lines even more. For best results, combine Double Wear Concealer with Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair Serum to create a smooth, creamy concealer application.
This formula does an amazing job at covering under eye circles. Not only does it cover, but it also brightens up the area as well. It does not settle into any lines or look heavy under the eyes either.
This is by far my favorite 'high end' concealer that I have tried. I love MAC and have a few go to drugstore brands, but Estee Lauders Double Wear Concealer is well worth the money. The product will last you for a while as you only need such a small amount to cover and brighten. Definitely consider this brand on your next beauty trip!
