It's been pretty hard to decide what I should pick for my first Star Of The Week, as I've spent way too much money on beauty products this week! Not bought any clothes though, so my choices are fairly limited in that respect. I finally managed to decide on one, which is.....
Drum roll please!!
Estée Lauder Double Wear Maximum Cover Foundation!
It's actually perfect too, the exact same shade as my skin. I'll post a proper review this week, but to give you an idea, this stuff is my all time favourite miracle product. I used a lightweight moisturiser before so it wouldn't cling to any dry patches, and applied it all over. I used a foundation brush, just because using my fingers feels really unhygienic, and you need the tiniest amount to cover your entire face so it's really not that expensive, especially considering how much I'd normally use trying to cover blemishes/red patches. I've learned that if you spend a while really buffing it in with the brush, it spreads so far, and doesn't look at all mask-like. Definitely need blusher though, or you'll have a very one colour face! By buffing it in well, it also doesn't leave any trace of a tide-mark or smears or anything.
I'm actually in love with this product, and don't think I could be tempted to move to the regular Double Wear anytime soon. I was worried that what with the foundation being such full coverage that it might clog my pores and make my skin break-out, but it seems even better than before I started using it.
Have you used the Maximum Cover foundation? What did you think?
