My Experience with Estee Laude Double Wear Makeup-To-Go Foundation
I have not used many Estee Lauder Foundations in past. My experience to EL foundations is pretty limited to using sample packs. So I did not what to expect.

Estee Lauder Makeup To Go is actually a liquid foundation packed in a compact form. Honestly I think it is a very intelligent packaging and ideal for travelling or carrying around. There is a press button that you press and the foundation pumps out. I’d have to say that it gets a bit messy so you always have to clean the surface with a tissue to keep it clean. It comes with a lovely sponge and a big round mirror is fitted on the inside. The compact closes with a satisfying click. There is absolutely no spillage and it is rather fool proof smart packaging.


Coming to the texture and performance.
It is a semi liquid foundation. I mostly just pick the foundation with finger tips, dot it on my face and blend it with a wet makeup sponge. I just need a one pump for full face if I need a medium coverage and two pumps if I need a full coverage. It builds up amazingly without feeling heavy or looking cakey.

The foundation goes on dewy and if you apply too much of it, it starts looking shiny. So I always need a help of powder to make it look natural. But as the weather is getting colder, I sometimes skip wearing powder and I love the glow to it gives to my skin. I have normal to dry skin so I always look forward to using glowy-dewy foundations. If you have oily skin, it would make your skin look shiner. Plus if you use this foundation with a damp sponge, it only looks more glowing. I love it but someone with oily skin would end up looking oil-slick. That said, once you do your full face makeup and set it with a bit of powder, this foundation looks very natural and lovely on the skin. It kind of gives that fresh look to the skin. Me likey! 😀

The staying power is just incredible. Honestly, with this foundation the face looks pretty much the same morning to evening – no touch ups required. I have worn it for as long as 10 hours and I am super impressed with how this foundation did not oxidize or fade away esp from my nose area. It just stays! I have worn it during day and evenings both, it has worked just beautifully always.
The only drawback is that this foundation has a strange smell to it. It does not transfer after you apply it. Just that in general if you smell it , it is not the most pleasing smell.

It comes with a sponge and it is an amazingly soft sponge. Very effective to use but very very hard to wash. It is so soft that I never know when to stop washing it. It always has that slippery feel to it that does not give me enough satisfaction if the sponge is completely clean or not.

Wouldn’t recommend it 100% for those with oily skin but wouldn’t ask them from refraining from trying it as well. Considering how long it lasts, people with oily skin can benefit from that. Plus there is always powder and primer to help keep things in place.

I also wouldn’t call it a hydrating foundation. Reading the hydrating claim, I tried using this foundation without a moisturiser underneath. My skin felt dry.. like really dry. So for someone with normal to dry skin, you definitely need to prep your skin the way you’d do it for any other foundation.

I’d just say that it is not the foundation that photographs the best. I have better foundations that I feel photograph much better than this. I feel it makes your skin look the way it is- very natural in photographs. I personally feel that if I have applied foundation, I want my skin to look a bit more than looking just natural. But that’s just me. I thought I’d mention it anyway. 🙂 In real life it looks gorgeous luminous still natural looking skin.

It is a perfect winter foundation to get that luminous skin. You can get the lovely glow with least effort. I seriously might just end up finishing it in winters itself.
A big thumbs up for people with normal to dry skin. Not a big one for those with oily-combination skin. Esp if you like your skin to look matte, steer clear of this.

  1. Interesting! Everybody seems to be jumping on the Korean bandwagon. I’m still waiting for stock inwarding at my local store to check this out – It’s been a week. At this rate, I’m more likely to check this out abroad than here – 5 mins from home! ??

    It’s giving a lovely finish! Me likely too. But I really have to try n see how it works for my oily skin!

  2. Superb smart packaging Rati, this is something that I would grab at the first opportunity,….you lookies hot as always :*
