Estée Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Foundation, €37.50. No Press samples featured. Not sponsored.
Estée Lauder is welcoming a new member to the Double Wear family – Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Foundation. But hold your high-coverage horses; from the information that we have, it doesn’t seem like Nude Fresh will be at all similar to Lauder’s original double wear.
Nude Fresh seems like a much lighter option, offering light-to-medium coverage in a ‘real skin’ satin finish. There’s also a lot of new tech gone into Nude Fresh – the kind of light-but-powerful punch we’re seeing in luxe foundations lately – see Giorgio Armani’s Power Fabric, for example.
It’ll be available in 33 shades. Pretty impressive – but I’m not sure that we’ll get the a full range of colour in Ireland. As with a lot of foundation launches, I’m expecting a condensed edit.
Modern blessings come in the form of broad spectrum SPF 30, anti-pollution elements and an infusion of skin care – namely hydration boosters. It’s also oil-free, so if you don’t suffer with dryness but have a problem with hydration lines and flaking (here’s how to spot the difference) this could be the answer.
It’s set to hit stores in July – will you be picking it up?
