My Favourite Long Lasting Duo

Hey there,

At this time of year I always find that there is more of a need for a long lasting make up. Whether it's because you're attending a Christmas Party, or that you are just spending more time getting beaten by the weather. 

My long lasting fighting team are Estee Lauder Double Wear and MAC Pro Longwear Concealer.

Both of these products have a great big space in my heart where make up is concerned. Estee Lauder Double Wear came into my life earlier this year when I bought it for being a bridesmaid. I needed a long lasting foundation that covered everything I needed covering as I knew it would be a long day with many photos being taken. After being tested twice in two different stores wrongly, I ended buying my shade blind online, I picked the palest pink toned shade, Shell, and it is a perfect match.
This foundation once applied, does not move until you remove it at the end of the day. It can do no wrong in my eyes honestly, it's like perfect skin in a bottle, it hides all my spots but doesn't feel like  its smothering them.

MAC Pro Longwear is another product that can do no wrong in my eyes (almost). It can cover anything, from spots to another persons' sunburn and it even has a good go at covering under eye circles. Like Double Wear, this concealer will not budge once it has been applied.
The reason I put almost in brackets is that it's shade range doesn't go light enough. The shade I have is NW15, which is too bad as it blends into a shade that works well for me however, my perfect shade in MAC is NW10 so it would be nice to see that shade exist in the future.

I know that if I am wearing this duo that I do not have to worry about my face during the day or night. What are your go to long lasting products? 

Lots of Love,

  1. My sister swears by Estee Lauder double wear but I just haven't been able to bring myself to pay that much for foundation yet! I think Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 hour does a pretty good job for the price :) Great post!
