This is part of the fabulous DOUBLE WEAR range from ESTEE LAUDER.
Having suffered from Acne in my youth I have slight scarring that, although doesn't stand out a mile, I would rather cover up but not put lashings on my face of foundation as that can be the cause of it returning.
This range is very light weight which AMAZING coverage.
After priming your skin. applying double wear [or any other foundation, although Double wear is better.] you apply a light coverage that gives maximum impact.
There are five different shades to choose from, light to dark, chose a light to medium but this was not the one I personally would have chosen so I'm very grateful to the sales advisor in Harvey Nicholls who took her time using a graph and going through what would suit my skin.
Oil is an issue as well and this now comes with 'OIL CONTROL' matte effect that doesn't cease up or flake off.
This is one of the best powders I've used that lasts all day long. It mentions you can cover up your skin throughout the day with this compact, which is a great size to pop into your bag and travel with, but I felt I didn't have to as it helped the foundation remain all day along. I had no issues wit oil all day so my confidence grew with this product and now the whole range.
I would highly recommend heading to a counter in a department store and ask the advisor to help with finding the right shade and foundation/ powder for you.
I was confident that I knew what shade worked for me but I went there with no makeup on and they were kind enough to go through what I needed and help write everything down and actually showed me how different it was being a shade lighter.
It has made my skin look fresher and clearer for longer, and even friends have been kind enough to mention the difference.
These can retail starting from £33 but shopping around online may bring the price down.
