My Take on Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Concealer “Medium Warm”
Estee Lauder double wear –Stay in place makeup range is loved by whole world- the formula, the coverage and the application is something to raved about. So is this Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Concealer. The texture is lightweight and creamy, being emollient it spreads easily and blends into skin perfectly plus it is water-resistance which is best feature to be used during summers. It won’t transfer, bulge or crease. The medium to buildable formula provides control over coverage like dark circles, dark spots, redness etc. It doesn’t feel heavy or feel uncomfortable but set to a matte finish and refuse to melt even when I sweat like a pig :/ – I admit, I sweat like hell; winter is my best season friends. 😀
The packaging comes with a doe foot applicator in a long tube similar to any lip-gloss packaging. I am a fond of the doe foot applicator which don’t demand digging in finger or brush. I generally take tiny little amount back of my hand and with a Real Techniques deluxe crease brush and gently apply and buff the product into skin. Once it set the finish is flawless, fresh and gives a healthy lift to my face. The shade is slightly warmer than my skin tone but matches perfectly to cover redness and discolouration happening currently.-Thank you #weather!! X-(
Pigmentation as mentioned is medium to buildable and extremely effective in covering hyper pigmentation, redness, discoloration, zits and pimples. I have 2 zits on my cheeks right now due to dryness and it helps a lot to cover the redness. I basically use concealer just to correct imperfection around my eye areas, as I don’t use any foundation, concealer and powder are my friends. With Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Concealer I need very little around 4 dots to conceal my eye area and nose. A little goes long way indeed! The only thing I need to keep in mind is to prep my skin and under eye properly so that it blends seamlessly. I generally don’t set it with powder but during summer I suppose I need to. Website says it last for 15 hours- honestly I never kept it that long but definitely it stay put for 8-9 hours without any touchup.

Review by Sushmita
[alert-note]You do not really have dark circles Sushmita. But this concealer does cover the redness and brightens up your under eye area really well. I will definitely check this out once I am done with my studio finish. I like its easily blend-able formula. Lovely review and great clicks :)[/alert-note]
