Estée Lauder DayWear Foundation


Just a quick review of the new Estée Lauder DayWear foundation sample that I got the other week from LatestinBeauty.

£34.00 50ml

£68.00 per 100ml

According to the Estée Lauder website:

‘DayWear B.B Anti-Oxidant Beauty Benefit Creme SPF 35.  All at once. Moisture, protection and flawless perfection.  Plus the most effective anti-oxidant power ever. This lightweight creme delivers:

  • An instant, even-toned, healthy look.
  • Powerful protection with our proven Super Anti-Oxidant Complex and SPF 35.
  • High-performance, oil-free hydration.
  • Helps to control excess surface oil.
  • Available in 2 shades to suit a wide range of skintones.

SGR Vintage Review:
And in reality it smells divine, goes on oh so smoothly and provided a reasonable, buildable coverage.
I usually suffer with dry skin and a lot foundations don’t usually last all that long before I start to see patches appearing but with the high moisture content of this foundation this was less of a problem.
But it only comes in two shades, I used shade 1 which matched my skin tone well but I question whether this would be the case for everyone, especially darker skin tones.
Would I get this for personal use?  Maybe, once I’ve finished my existing foundation.
Would I get this for my kit? No
