DUPE ALERT- L’Óreal Pro Glow Foundation And Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Foundation

The Esteé Lauder Double Wear Light Foundation- I use the shade intensity 4.0

And for L’Óreal Pro Glow Foundation- I use the shade 209 Caramel Beige

What I these products have in common-

Both long wearing

Both come in a squeezy tube

Both contain SPF. L’Óreal has SPF 15 and Estee Lauder has SPF 10.

Both are lightweight foundations.

They both give a medium coverage.

They both blend the same.

Other products layer on top well.

They both give a luminous look when you add concealer, powder, etc.

What is different-

Price- Estee Lauder is £32.50 and L’Óreal is £11.99

The Estee Lauder helps with oil control and gives me a healthy glow.

The L’Óreal foundation, I find myself having to blot a bit more than usual.

In my opinion, these foundation’s are both good. I would personally re-purchase the Estee Lauder Foundation as that foundation works better on my skin type.

Review- Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Foundation

Double Wear Light Stay-in-Place Makeup: Sheer-to-medium coverage. Natural finish. SPF10 protection. Up to 15-hours wear. Long-wear makeup is now lightweight makeup. Fresh, natural, comfortable. Goes on sheer, leaves skin free to breathe all day. Controls oil, resists smudging and won’t “melt” off through heat and humidity. For a look that stays vibrant and fresh whether it’s a workday, a workout or a weekend. It’s makeup that keeps up.

Achieve a luminous, healthy-looking complexion with the long-wearing liquid foundation from Estée Lauder. Delivering sheer to medium coverage for a natural look, its buildable formula effortlessly melts onto skin and can be blended easily for a streak-free, satin finish.

My shade is Intensity 4.0
My Review-

To apply the foundation I used a morphe beauty sponge.

I squeezed out a pump like size and blended it into my face.

The foundation gives a medium coverage.

Other powders blend on top well.

The foundation lasts well on my skin.

It gives me healthy glow.

Gives me a satin finish.

I find myself using blotting powder once throughout the day.

Lasts really well throughout a hot day.

Honestly, this is one of the best foundations that I have tried this year and I would re-purchase this product.

I would recommend it for any skin type. But Estee Lauder needs to work on their shade range as it only has seven shades available on the Estee Lauder website.

This is the best website to purchase the foundation from- Look Fantastic

as they have discounts daily

Makeup I Used To Love

Ex1 Invisiwear Foundation- I used to love this foundation but with my skin changing the foundation looks blotchy and doesn’t last long on my skin.

Nyx Total Control Drop Foundation- this foundation used to look good on me. Now it looks like cakey and dry on my skin.

Smashbox Contour Stick- I don’t cream contour anymore.

Mac Mineralize Skin Finish- this doesn’t suit my skin anymore. And it doesn’t control my oil.

Colourpop Concealer- looks dry under my eyes.

Vichy Dermablend Loose Powder- it doesn’t keep me matte in my t-zone long enough.

Iconic London Cream Contour Kit- in not into cream contour anymore.

Ex1 Concealer Review

Perfect the look of your skin with EX1 Cosmetics Delete Fluide Concealer; a creamy, highly-pigmented formula that expertly camouflages blemishes and imperfections.

Blending on seamlessly, the liquid concealer delivers natural-looking colour with buildable, full coverage for a flawless finish. Provides long-lasting hydration to prevent caking and creasing. Expect a smooth, even complexion with minimised blemishes and dark circles.


The packaging reminded me of the mac pro long wear concealer.

I got the shade 8.0.

The consistency is thick and lightweight.

I used one pump for both under eyes.

It covered my dark circles and brightens my under eyes.

The downside of this concealer is that is creased a lot.

I’ve decided to use the concealer for covering pigmentation and blemishes.
