Estee Lauder does amazing foundations, that’s just a fact. They also ventured into the world of BB and CC creams and did a great job on that too. They really understand the needs of a face make-up product and I already pledged my eternal love for the Double Wear Light foundation. It’s simply everything I want and it stays on like no other foundation does. So a BB cream version of the Double Wear foundation? Yes please! I was very excited and had high hopes for this one. So did it exceed my expectations? Read on!

So let’s talk about the Double Wear and Double Wear Light foundations first. They are both extremely long lasting and have a semi-matte finish. I’d say they are best for oily/combination skin because it’s not that moisturising but it’s not drying either. They have very good coverage, even the Light version covers quite some spots. Now let me introduce you theĀ Estee Lauder Double Wear All-Day Glow BB Moisture Make-Up. It’s actually very different from both foundations. It’s moisturising and the finish is glowy. The finish is semi-sheer.

Estee Lauder did a great move with the shade selection. It’s the same as Double Wear Light and I picked intensity 2, the same shade I am in DW Light. They do match in colour but I’d say that the BB cream runs slightly pinker. So what are my thoughts on theĀ Estee Lauder Double Wear All-Day Glow BB Moisture Make-Up? I’d say that I’m not quite sure why they called it that way. I would’ve never guessed that this would be the BB cream version of the foundations. People using those foundations mostly seek coverage, a matte finish and great oil-control. This is anything but that. Don’t get me wrong though, it’s a great product, I just don’t see the connection between these three products.

The Double Wear BB cream is actually excellent for those with drier skin. I think Estee Lauder might have tried to fill in a gap in their BB cream selection because both Clear Difference BB cream and Daywear BB cream are targeted to combination/oily skin. DW BB cream provides a very nice sheer coverage with a nice sheen to the skin. I do suggest to fix it with powder on the face because it might tend to move too much around the skin. It is longwearing but it’s not the best at oil-control (it’s really targeted to dry skin). It provides an SPF 30 which is a very big plus. The texture of the BB cream is not too thick but it’s quite creamy. So in conclusion I would say that this is an absolute recommendation to those with drier skins!
