When it comes to wedding day beauty, it’s something that I left to the very capable and talented hands of a professional, but that’s not an option for every bride. So if you’re game to go solo and do your own wedding day beauty prep, I’ve got a special treat for you today!
Recently I was contacted by Condé Nast Sway to complete a product review for the Double Wear collection from Estée Lauder. I was initially intrigued by this collection as it’s basically makeup built to last on your big day! The Double Wear Collection is meant to stay in place from day to night, making it a perfect option for your wedding day. I was really excited to test it out and share the results with all of you!
The company sent me a little package in the mail complete with a $100 Visa Gift Card and a fun makeup brush, and off I went to Macy’s in Herald Square to visit the Estée Lauder beauty counter.
You can watch the video below to learn about my experience at the beauty counter and see which items I chose from the Estée Lauder Double Wear collection and how (and where) I wore it to test it out!
The items that I purchased with my gift card were:
From the Estée Lauder site: Now you have hours to glow. This luminous, long-wear BB Makeup brightens, perfects and evens. Lightweight, oil-free, moisture-fresh. Protects with high-level SPF 30. Instantly perfects skintone and vibrancy. Soft optics impart clear, bright tone and luster to skin for a flawless, healthy glow. Provides Vitamin E and Vitamin C anti-oxidant protection. Long-wear—up to 8 hours.
After trying several different options from the Double Wear line, I selected the All Day Glow BB. As you’ll see in the video, I love BB creams — they serve dual purpose with moisturizer and coverage in one. Keeping your skin healthy with moisturizer is one of the key ways to keep your skin looking great as you age, so anything that gives me a little extra protection is great in my book. I love that the coverage is substantial, but goes on very sheer and blends well with my skin. I am excited to continue using this product!
From the Estée Lauder site: Looks flawless. Lasts 15-hours. Feels comfortable, never dry. Stays seamless, without creasing. Its lightweight creme formula creates the perfected look of flawless skin all day. Transfer-resistant, color-true, with medium buildable coverage that won’t slip, slide or melt away. Luminous finish. Infused with minerals and emollients to condition skin and make blending easy. Oil-free. Water, perspiration and humidity-resistant.
I also chose the Double Wear Flawless Concealer — dark under eye circles are something I’m constantly combatting, and this concealer helps disguise them flawlessly! I really like the color and the way it blends with my skin, and overall I’m really happy with this product as well. I look forward to continue to use this product to hide my dark circles and keep myself looking bright eyed and bushy tailed!
From the Estée Lauder site: Now re-ignite the youthful light of your eyes with our most comprehensive anti-aging eye treatment ever. Proven to reduce the look of every key visible sign of eye aging: fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, dark circles, dryness and uneven skintone. TESTED AND PROVEN. Delivers significant clinical improvement: a more youthful—vibrant, brighter—look to your eyes. With exclusive ChronoluxCB™ Technology, it maximizes the power of night to re-ignite the light that can fade due to fatigue, pollution and age.
I also ended up picking up the Advanced Night Repair Eye gel, and I’m so glad I did. It smells nice and gives me added protection and prevents against aging. I look forward to seeing if I achieve any long term results from adding this to my skincare regimen! The kind folks at the Estée Lauder counter also gave me a couple of freebies with my purchase — a double ended mascara / lip gloss combo! So perfect for a gal on the go! And also their Micro Essence for added skin benefits! After wearing this makeup for over 15 hours, I’d say that I was thoroughly impressed with the coverage and last-factor of the Double Wear collection. Definitely consider checking it out for yourself and finding your perfect foundation with an Estée Lauder beauty expert at a department store near you!
I received the products in this post from Estée Lauder through Condé Nast in order to complete this review.
