As a fan of the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation, I thought it was time to try the concealer from the same range.
I picked this up from world duty free, its the Double Wear instant fix 24 hour concealer.
My shade is 2N light medium, but like the foundation it comes in loads of shades and it costs £25.00
This concealer is two products in one, so as you can see, its a double ended tube. The gold end is a prep and prime hydrating serum and the other end is the actual concealer.
I often find concealers can dry out under my eyes through out the day making fine lines look worse than they actually are and lets face it, a flaky dry under-eye is never a good look. So I really liked the idea of applying this hydrating serum first although I did think it maybe just one of those gimmicky things that brands sometimes do.
The serum end has a small spatula type of applicator and I just dab a few small dots under my eye then blend in with my finger. It initially feels a little sticky and you need to leave a for a minute to dry. After a minute or so, the skin under your eye feels tighter and smoother. Then apply the concealer. Apparently you can re-apply the serum throughout the day to refresh your concealer but I haven’t found this necessary.
The concealer end has the usual doe foot applicator. Its a nice consistency, not as thick as I was expecting, and I have been blending it in with a real techniques sponge which works really well. The coverage, as you would expect from a Double Wear product, is very good and although I haven’t needed to leave this on for 24 hours, the finish at the end of the day is as good as it was when I applied it in the morning so it lasts really well.
It also claims to be waterproof but I haven’t tested this out. It comes off easily at the end of the day with my usual cleanser.
This is my new absolute favourite concealer. It makes my under-eye skin look so much fresher and I have had compliments from people asking what I am using.
I only conceal under my eyes, but I would imagine this would be brilliant at covering any skin discolouration, skin pigmentation etc.
Have you tried this product before?
