The ultimate makeup foundation for a #girlonthego

makeup foundation

Hey Ladies

I am feeling super beauty obsessed lately, i mean i am always into beauty and makeup stuff but lately even more. It is always exciting when makeup brands come up with new innovations. Like contour palettes, color correctors and so many other new things. So when Estee Lauder released their Double Wear Cushion Stick, i was intrigued. Imagine that you could get both a makeup applicator and foundation in one? Could your base be done any easier? Whether you are a gal that is always moving and on the go, or like me, a working mom who has no time to spare, this foundation is made for you! 


Estee Lauder Makeup Foundation Cushion Stick Review

First Impression

The first thing that caught my eyes is the sleek and super modern packaging. It is super lightweight, which is perfect for throwing it into my makeup bag and take it with me wherever i go. I am always looking for no fuss makeup, this one has really everything you need to get ready in a jiffy, as well as for travel and quick touch ups. The foundation comes in 17 shades, which means you can surely find something that matches your skin-tone. Estēe Lauder is known for having an array of shade ranges, this foundation has a lot of pale, and fair shades.

The Formula

The formula is a sheer to medium coverage with a satin finish, which will give you that dewy, fresh-faced look. You know I hate anything cakey on my face but this foundation is very lightweight and feels smooth as silk. You do have to blend it well, i would use my fingers for additional blending. I have an oily-combo skin type, however, i feel like i don’t need to set it with powder at all. It’s definitely one of those formulas that look better throughout the day once its been on the skin for a while.

The Application

Estée Lauder has really thought of everything for this new product. To apply the foundation all you have to do is twist the cap, and liquid formula will dispense. If you have too much, twist it again and it will suck the foundation back in. The method is similar to a chapstick. Next, just dot the foundation around your face, gently buff in using the sponge, and then blend out using the sponge or your fingers for an even, glowing look.
I was worried that the built-in sponge applicator will get super dirty after a while, however, the sponge tip screws off so you can quickly clean it with warm water and mild soap, and then just twist it back on. Clever no?

My Verdict

All in all, i believe it is a fantastic new product that I’m definitely a fan of! However, if you are looking for full coverage, this foundation might not meet your needs. It is a great product for everyday use, touch ups and traveling. I tend to not use that much base on my face anyways, so this is perfect for me. I love the fact that i can blend it with the cushion stick and wash it when needed.
