When it comes to the foundation department, we all know that Estee Lauder does one of the best foundation in terms of delivering great coverage (DoubleWear!) so when they recently launched the Estee Lauder Perfectionist Youth Infusing Makeup, the first thought came to mind was, will the coverage be good?
This foundation promises to firm, brighten and hydrate skin whilst providing medium to full coverage.
To be honest, this came in handy to put to test because recently I have just gotten back on the pills and is still suffering from all the hormonal breakout episodes. As a result, I’ve been testing heaps of concealers and foundations to hopefully help conceal all the scarring and redness all over my face.
Packaging wise, this liquid foundation comes in a glass pump bottle packaging. Making it sturdy and easy to use but would be quite heavy for travelling so definitely need to depot this.
Texture wise, it is easy to smooth on skin with fingers and I find it can be quite streaky if applied with a foundation brush. So my recommendation is to apply this with fingers and blend/dab and smooth over skin. It sets pretty quickly without the need of powder as this is an oil-free formula that provides skin hydration and infused with Perfectionist serum formula that helps to nourish, reduce the look of lines and brightens skin.
There are a total of 16 shades to choose from and I am using #1N1 Ivory Nude which is a yellow toned light ivory shade. I find the shade sits well on my skin and doesn’t oxidise but coverage wise I’ll say this is sheer to medium as I find it quite efficient at evening out my skin tone but when it comes to redness, acne scarring and the likes, I still need a high performance concealer to cover those spots.
In case you are wondering, I am in love with Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place High Cover Concealer which also have SPF 30+ in it.
Once applied, I find that this foundation blends into my skin colour naturally however, it isn’t the best at oil controlling, so I find myself definitely need to blot and dab a layer of powder to help combat the oiliness (I have super oily skin by the way). Apart from that, I find this foundation perfect for those who have semi-good skin as this foundation does a great job at evening out basic skin tone concern and best of all it doesn’t smudge/oxidise.
