Estee Lauder: Invisable Liquid Foundation vs. Double Wear Foundation

If you are in the market for a new foundation, I've got two great high-quality options for you. 

Invisible Liquid Foundation:

This is perfect for the woman who wants barely-there coverage.  The formulation is thin and weightless allowing your natural skin finish to show through.  Unlike a tinted moisturizer, this foundation doesn't add a dewy look to the skin. I've used this product for a week and I think it is perfect for an easy, every day summer look.  It does stick to its name by being invisible-if you have blemishes or scarring on your skin, it will show through.  It spreads evenly over the skin without needing to use much which will make your investment in this product last longer.  This foundation is oil free so I think it would be suitable for most skin types.  This foundation is perfect for smoothing out the skin and adding an overall polished finish. 

Expert tip: When using this product, for best results shake 20-25 times before applying

Looking for a more affordable foundation with nearly the same effects?

Check out my February Favorites review of Maybelline's Fit Me Foundation.

Double Wear Foundation

This is my favorite foundation that I have tried so far!  It gives medium coverage, immediately evening skin tone, but sinks straight into the skin without leaving a cakey texture.  During the warmer months, it can be difficult to make your makeup last all day but this seriously will not budge! It can be a bit difficult to blend if you wait too long so I would suggest applying it to small areas one at a time until you get the coverage you want.  It is marketed to last 15 hours and look the same at the end of the day as it does when you put it on and it stays true to its word.  If you can splurge, I'd highly recommend this product as a staple in your beauty collection. 

Expert tip:  If you are going out for the night and using cameras with flash, be wary of foundations with SPF as they will photograph lighter, making you appear washed out.
