Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation Vs. Esteé Lauder Double Wear
By now, I’m sure you have all noticed a pattern in the fact that I am OBSESSED with trialling and testing high-coverage foundations and concealers.
I’d heard a LOT about the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation, mostly regarding how high-coverage it was, with the added bonus of a lightweight finish – so I knew it might well be an equal rival for my steady makeup bag favourite – Estée Lauder Double Wear.
One month after starting my trial, Double Wear is hidden somewhere in my ‘occasional’ makeup draw and the Magic Foundation has taken it’s place.
What’s so great about this foundation? Well…
- The consistency is really luxurious, lightweight and instantly disappears when applied to the skin, concealing unsightly pigmentation within moments.
- It’s apparently collagen boosting, with the power to reduce age spots by 75%… obviously I can’t put this theory to the test as I’m lacking age spots, but I can safely say that it’s helped to reduce the appearance of my acne, along with some good skincare products!
- The light shade (1 – Fair), obviously my colour match, is extremely pale – making this a great foundation for both light and darker skin tones.
- It’s ever-so-slightly cheaper than Double Wear… and doesn’t leave the skin feeling ‘heavy’ – pores look minimised and there is 0 ‘cake-iness’ experienced.
I find that this foundation is best applied in blotting motions with a beauty blender, but that’s just my personal preference… I know the experts at Charlotte Tilbury recommend using a narrow foundation brush for maximum blending/full coverage!
