Perfect Skin in a Bottle: Estee Lauder Nude Water Fresh Foundation

September 23, 2017

Estée Lauder brought out a new addition to the Double Wear range earlier this year and it's just the foundation I have been looking for. While the original Double Wear is amazing for a night out (hello, 24 hour wear!), I have been craving a light-weight, sheer coverage foundation that doesn't dry out my skin, a craving that the new Nude Water Fresh foundation fulfils.

This foundation is weightless, and untraceable on the skin. However, there is coverage! Water Fresh beautifully evens out my skin tone, while still allowing my (5 or 6) freckles to peak through. I don't look or feel like I'm wearing foundation at all, thanks to its water-light texture which contains red fruit, watermelon rind, litchi seed and apple extracts that all help hydrate the skin- a godsend for someone like me whose face is the Sahara Desert.

I wore this foundation all summer long, through festivals and holidays in the cold, Welsh sea and it truly is a long-wearing as it claims to be, as well as having the added benefit of SPF 30 and anti-oxidants, which protect skin from sun exposure and any environmental damage. It looks best when applied using hands so it's really easy to take on the go too!

While this foundation is super light-weight (which is brilliant), it does also mean that it is very liquid-y. Do not attempt to pour this onto the back of your hand or use the new Double Wear pump; you will make a giant mess! Double Wear foundation does not come out of carpet, so do not risk it! Instead, place your finger over the opening and shake the bottle, using what is left on your finger to apply to the face.

Have you tried this foundation? Let me know your thoughts or if there are any other foundations you think I should try?

Thanks for reading!
