I was matched to the shade one in the Double Wear Light, because no shades matched in the actual Double Wear. At first I was a bit bummed, I really wanted Double Wear, but I've gotta say I'm kinda glad now, I think it would've felt too heavy for me.
For some reason I was extremely tired when I took these pictures, so that is why my eyes are weird!
So apologies for the no make-up but I wanted to show you what it looked like, and the coverage it gave.
As you can see, it does give a very medium coverage, doesn't completely cover my redness, but does even out my skin tone. (The second picture is literally just the foundation.)
So the first picture shows how it looks with a powder, concealer etc, and it does give a good finish, however I have a problem with it. It takes a while to dry, and feels tacky until it does. Also, I find that it collects on random places of my face during my day, specifically, the middle of my forehead, nose and above my lip which is very strange, but I think that may actually be my skin at the moment, quite a few foundations are doing that, so I don't know.
The second picture is how it looked just when I was about to take it off, about 8 hours later, and as you can see, the foundation really has lasted.
I find that it takes a while to really blend out, and I've tried brushes, fingers and a damp sponge, but still haven't found the best way to blend it onto the skin. But maybe it's just me?
The one thing that I love about this foundation is the colour match. It is perfect. But that is probably the only thing I love about it. I do like the coverage and now find I save it for days when my skin is really awful, as I don't want to put it on my skin when it's behaving. Does that make sense?
I don't hate this product, but it's just not the one for me (sigh!) So, the hunt for my perfect foundation continues (when this has run out!)
Any recommendations? Do any of you use this? Any tips?
