My first impressions of this foundation, I have to say, were all amazing. 'Why have I only just purchased this?' but I'll be honest- that soon faded after a couple of weeks of wear.
Don't get me wrong, I still adore the foundation but I've found that it has a lot of flaws which I have never heard people talk about before.
The Double Wear foundation claims to be a full coverage foundation which I would definitely agree with. After one layer you're looking at medium but it's so easily build-able and it's not as heavy or thick as you first think either. It runs off your hand. It gives the most flawless finish (one of the best I've tried yet) but unfortunately one of their other claims is that it lasts up to 15 hours without touch-ups which it simply doesn't (obviously just my personal opinion). For the first few hours I'm totally feelin' myself but it's all pretty much down hill from there unless you're always looking at me from a distance, in which case, I'm good to go all day. Once you get up close you can see the foundation around certain areas start to separate and it accentuates my pores massively. If you're someone who has oily skin then this formula would probably be perfect for you but for someone who has normal skin, it's just not ideal.
If you're only planning on being out for a few hours then this foundation would be great for that kind of short wear and also- pictures! The Double Wear foundation does have SPF 10 but there's no SPF flashback. It looks amazing in photographs and I find that's sometimes difficult to find. There's nothing more annoying than having your makeup on point and then your selfie tells another story is there? yeah, I feel you.
Overall, I'm quite disappointed in the experience I've had with the foundation but, as I've said, I think it's just that the formula simply doesn't go with my skin type no matter how much I moisturise and prime. Other than the problems I've had with longevity, I adore the finish and coverage that this foundation gives and I'm determined to find love for this foundation!
Do you have normal-dry skin and found a way to make this foundation work for you? What product was a game changer for you?
