Something interesting… no, GROUNDBREAKING has happened in makeup. Estee Lauder makeup (yes, Estee Lauder. Not one of the many companies it has absorbed) has joined the ranks of modern formulations and applications.
I’m happy (if a little shocked) to say that I have found a favorite at the counter formerly reserved for the… eh… more mature among us.
Look at what happened to me today:
The DoubleWear Light Foundation (5.0) is DIVINE. It goes on smooth and sets to a beautiful finish. And my foray into the formerly ancient world of Estee Lauder doesn’t stop there; that green shadow… ALSO FROM ESTEE LAUDER!
Even with the recent accolades by other MUA’s, I hesitated because Estee Lauder is not known to be particularly sympathetic to customers of color. All of the undertones are typically pink or go really ashy. This particular foundation defies that… featuring a distinct yellow undertone. I was sold after I tried on a bit and it set within seconds. It’s good stuff. I can see this becoming a daily favorite.
