New additions...


So today some of you may have seen me tweeting about foundation. Soon after I received numerous messages from my friend telling me I had to get the Estee Lauder double wear. Seen as there seems to be nothing but good reviews about this stuff online, I decided to take the plunge. Off I dashed to the shops an hour before they shut : /. To cut a long story short, I got myself colour matched and for anyone that might be the same colour as me, I was told I'm a neutral tone and was matched to 3N1 Ivory Beige. Which may I add is the most perfect match iv ever had in a foundation, Its identical to my skin! I cant wait to get ready for work in the morning  just to slap this on. Iv heard it stays put ALL DAY yes all day, even the lady at the counter was telling me its all the workers choice because they don't have to worry about touch ups through the day. Bring on the flawless face!

Anyhoo.... Off I trotted to pay at another till and in front of me I say this luminescent goodness. I immediately swiped some on my hand and was sold straight away. The lady at the counter then offered to pop some on my cheeks, I agreed and fell in love all over again. I didn't even care about the price, this stuff was just too purdy to pass by. Turned out it was about £30 which one would expect for a Laura Mercier product. It also turns out that this stuff is popular *blogger living under a rock*  so I'm glad I got my hands on it especially as its LE. The morning couldn't come quick enough, I fell like a child at Christmas....

So those are my new additions are any of you fans of the double wear or the highlighter ( if you've managed to nab one ).....?

  1. Oh eff off! Your swatch is making me want to check it out again tomorrow LOL I refuse to get my hopes up though as I'm sure it'll be too cool-toned for me. It looks gorgeous though, hmm we'll see. I totally forgot to check out the darker shades of Double Wear again when I was in NY too *rolls eyes*

  31. Nice blog - I'm a follower! That highlighter is such a gorgeous colour! How is it on though - looks verrry shimmery for the face; I'd be tempted to use it as more of an eyeshadow!

    Feel free to have a gander at my new beauty blog:

  33. @Hannah theres no shimmer in it at all. I heavily swatched it so people could see the effect. Its the best highlighter iv ever used. I wouldnt use it as an eye shadow though. its way too fine fir that.

  45. Hi - I just tried out this foundation and its perfect! But I've read that it causes flashback in photos because of the SPF in it. Have you had any issues with it? I really want to get this foundation but my only issue is the flashback. Hope to hear from you soon. Love your blog! :)
