I purchased this foundation last week in House of Fraser after hearing soooo many good things from friends that have been using it forever, and they would always say to me ‘yes its more expensive, but you don’t use as much product so you get your monies worth’ and to be totally honest with you, I wasn’t buying it.
If you know me well or you’ve read some of my previous posts, you will know that I love a bargain. A £7 Rimmel foundation from Superdrug has always be my go to ever since I started wearing make up at around 15 years old and it has never been a problem for me, but I decided that I was finally going to see what all the fuss was about, bite the bullet, and give the much loved £33.50 foundation a go. I was not disappointed.
I now understand why so many people have been praising this foundation for so long, its pretty darn amazing! You need the tiniest amount of product (less than one pump of a Rimmel drugstore foundation) and it offers very full coverage. To get the kind of coverage that Estee Lauder’s Double Wear provides, I would need around 3 pumps of foundation of Rimmel, and even then I’m not convinced that it would have the same effect.
Somehow, this foundation offers full coverage without looking cakey or being slimy. I am so impressed!
I am dark brunette but have fairly light skin, so when I went in to House of Fraser I asked them to do a colour match for me so that I knew I had got the right shade, and apparently I’m ‘Pebble’. What a sweet name.
I hope this blog has helped you if you were umming and ahhing over whether or not to try it, like I was. I would 100% recommend it and will be re-purchasing once I’ve run out.
Love, Charlotte xo
