The Ultimate Long-wearing Radiant Looking Skin Foundation || REVIEW

Estee Lauder Double wear nude cushion foundation

Are you too a sucker for radiant looking skin, without worrying about the foundation slipping away?

Well, well, then don’t look any further! Oh bummer, sorry for the spoiler though, but I really do love this foundation – I’m talking about the Estee Lauder Double wear nude cushion foundation stick*. It’s the ultimate heat proof, long-wearing, weightless and radiant looking foundation.


It comes in a sleek tube packaging, which is quite conducive for traveling. The little cushion bit though, would be lovely if it was something around the lines of a beauty blender quality, instead of being a stiff cushion. If you know what I mean. But none the less, it is convenient when you are traveling and have no brushes in hand.  However it is definitely not a preferred way to apply the foundation. Another plus point about the packaging I would have to say is the cushion bit does detach, so it is easier to clean up. And you wouldn’t have to worry about the bacteria growing on it and blah blah.  Yet another strong point which I felt was genius, was, if you twisted up a lot of product, you could easily retract it back by unwinding the screw bit of the tube – that was something that blew my mind, honestly.

It a lovely light weight formula, which is not to thick nor too running. Just the right consistency. Which makes it easy to blend even with that weird cushion bit that it comes with. It’s definitely not a matt formula, its more like a radiant finish, which doesn’t look greasy or shiny a bit, even on a long summer day. The finish remains consistent at-least on a dry to normal skin type. 

It’s a light to medium coverage formula. Not like the original double wear foundation which I believe is said to be a full coverage foundation. Hence the label of “Nude cushion foundation”. It’s definitely layerable and build-able. It’s more skin like finish than anything else. And I absolutely adore that about it. 


I would have to say, that lasting power of this is the second best feature about this foundation. It last longer than the 8 hours mark as they advertise it to be. I wore it the whole day without it budging or creasing.

Definitely worth trying if you are after that glowy skin, and don’t want to worry about your makeup slipping and sliding away. Highly recommend it to anyone who’s not on a look out for a full coverage foundation. This is the perfect your skin but better, foundation. 

Have you tried the double wear range from Estee Lauder? Which is your preferred finish when it comes to foundations – matt, demi-matt or radiant?
