I used Armani Luminous Silk foundation for five years and still think that it's one of the best foundations on the market. You can go to any beauty counter and they'll be happy to let you try it. They'll help you find your shade and you'll realize how great it is.
The reason I decided to start using Estee Lauder has to do with time. I wake up very early 6 days a week and need my makeup to still look great by the time evening rolls around. Even with the Armani primer, I felt like the Armani foundation did not look the same as the day went on. I would apply Armani powder at lunch to freshen up, but by dinner I needed more. I researched some of the most talked about liquid foundations and found that Estee Lauder double wear has quite the following. Everyone said the same thing, it lasts. Because of its reputation, I decided to give it a try.
It lasts. Let me tell ya! I still have Armani primer left and don't want it to go to waste so I've been using that with the Estee Lauder double wear foundation. Here are my steps: First I apply Estee Lauder day wear moisturizer. Second I apply my Armani primer. Third, I use my Sigma Beauty F80 flat brush to apply my double wear liquid foundation. Fourth, I apply a little bit of Estee Lauder double wear powder to create more of a matte look.
I still get just as many compliments, if not more now that I'm using the double wear foundation. It feels good, it looks good, and it's less expensive than the Armani luminous silk that I was using. I even got my Mom to try it, and she loves it too! She's gorgeous and would look good regardless but she looks so so pretty with her new makeup! I love sharing new products with the ones I care about (like my Mom), so I thought I would share Estee Lauder double wear with all of you. I hope you like it. It's worth trying. Happy Friday!
