Sephora Matte Perfection Foundation Review

You know how I keep telling you that I won´t purchase some products because I feel almost insulted by the names companies give them?

And I am not talking the tongue in cheek names here (I have a pretty high tolerance to that). No, I am talking about things like the Farsali Unicorn Essence. Unicorns? Really? I am grown up, I don’t want glitter and rainbows.

Although I admit I was seriously tempted to overlook that quite recently, because a Makeup Artist at Sephora used the Unicorn Essence on me before applying the Sephora Matte Perfection Foundation, and the foundation looked beautiful all day.

But after I purchased it (the Matte Perfection Foundation, not the Unicorn Essence, I stood true to my word there), I had a hard time getting it to look like that. In fact, it took me three weeks and a lot of different brush/primer combos to find a way to make it work, and judging by other reviews I have read online I am not the only one that struggles. Maybe the Unicorn Essence would have made my life easier? We will never know.

So don´t despair if you bought it and struggle, I´ve got you covered. At least if your skin type is oily.

Dry skins don´t need to read any further: The Sephora Matte Perfection Foundation is not for you!

Yes, I know it is summer. Hot days, bronzed skin, effortless makeup. And yet, admits a flurry of posts singing praises for dewiness and light coverage, here I am. Ready to talk about a matte finish, full coverage foundation. In fact, I am about to review THE matte full coverage foundation – Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup.

Why? I can hear you cry out! Why suffocate my feed with thoughts about heavy coverage? Why plant pictures of my base melting off my face into my mind?

Because, no matter the season, I believe that Estee Lauder Double Wear is still the best foundation for oily skin.

 

And believe me, I have thoroughly tested it. It has been almost one year since I purchased it, it has seen me through summer, fall, winter and spring, and, more importantly, through several skin changes. You see, I am well prepared to give you a thorough Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation review!
