Estee Lauder Double Wear All-Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup($45) is a luminous, long-wear BB Cream. Yup. And yes, it truly is one of the more long-wearing BB Creams I’ve tried! The packaging is rather meh to be honest. It kinda’ lacks any kind of pizazz, right?
Especially with that DIN # plastered on the front there. I mean, kudos for you Estee Lauder in getting that DIN health number from Canada. Must have been a major FEAT since most brands just choose to cover up any SPF info with a sticker and call it a day. But you guys? You ROCK for filling out all them forms. But, call me crazy, I do think if you’re gonna launch ANOTHER FREAKIN’ BB CREAM in this over-saturated BB market, you need some PIZAZZ to stand out, right? This is kind of..I don’t know..ordinary? I don’t know. I’m just a chick who likes makeup, but sometimes I do think packaging lures me in, ya’ know? This one does not. It’s generic and a tiny bit…sad?
Estee Lauder Double Wear All-Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup has soft optical correctors- transparent, opalescent mica that deliver instant luminosity to the skin. GLOW BABY. And you know I like GLOW! It also has hyaluronic acid and glycerin to moisturize. Yes! Plus it’s made to last 8 hours, which is pretty great for a BB Cream I think. Most of them disappear on me way before 8 hours. This does not!
The shade 2 I was sent is a little dark for me, so I used some self tanner on my face and it’s a pretty perfect match now! God, I wish I was shade 2 naturally sometimes. Life would be so much easier when it comes to foundation matching. There are 8 shades available, which is pretty great for a BB Cream if you think about it. Most of them come in 3 shades at the most. I just gotta get my hands on shade 1 and that would make me a happy beauty blogger! Also, I live for the day when I’m NOT shade 1 in some foundation range. I think I’d have to sell the house and buy an RV. One with a shower for sure. And then park that RV down in Phoenix with all the other Canadians who live there. Give me a couple of years in that environment and I’d be shade 2 EASY.
Estee Lauder Double Wear All-Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup does a really great job of evening out my skin tone and correcting redness. Take a looksy!
*Nothing on my face, just the EL All Day Glow BB Cream, The rest of my makeup*
Yet it still looks quite natural on the skin, hey? It doesn’t look like I have a ton of foundation on my skin, which frankly I can’t stand in the summer. Actually that’s a lie. I can’t really stand heavy makeup at ANY TIME of the year, and prefer lighter coverage all of the time. Even if my skin is acting up. I’d much rather put extra concealer on spots than have to make a full coverage foundation look natural. But, that’s me….and I realize everyone is different! To each his/her own and power to you. 😀
No brush needed with this stuff, I just use my hands for BB Creams. It smooths on nicely, and doesn’t feel tacky at all like other glowy BB Creams. It dries down nicely, yet leaves a pretty, discreet glow to my face. Not anything glowy and obvious, just a HEYYYY GURLL you look NIIIICE kinda’ glow. And did I mention that Estee Lauder Double Wear All-Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup has SPF30 too? Because OH YEAH it does. And this old chick likes that.
I think Estee Lauder makes some pretty awesome BB creams. This is the second one I’ve tried, and actually the first one I bought I actually FINISHED. HELLO. I rarely finish off ANYTHING, so that’s something something right there, hey? I think Estee Lauder makes some of the best BB creams out there to be honest. If you’re in the market for one, please do look at their offerings!
Do you BB Cream? Or not? Or are you a hardcore foundation kinda’ gal?
