I have an enormous respect and admiration for the Estée Lauder brand. It was founded in 1946 by Estée Lauder in New York City. In case you didn’t know, Estée Lauder companies include Tom Ford, La Mer, Becca, Bobby Brown, Smashbox and many, many more.
Today I’m testing the Double wear flawless concealer which I have never tried before. Honoring the brand, I’m also wearing the Double Wear Foundation, which I already know and love.
The concealer is definitely long wear as it didn’t move, crease or change too much throughout the day. It is medium buildable coverage and was able to conceal most of my particularly pronounced today dark under eye. My skin for some reason is quite dry today so it would be unfair to be too harsh in judging if it dries out further but it is definitely not moisturizing. It does brighten a bit though but you can’t expect much from a matte formula when it comes to this affect.
It is not better than the Tom Ford Emotionproof but you are getting twice as much product for half the price. I think the value speaks for itself and it overall gets the job done.
I have to mention that the ingredients in the Smashbox, Tom Ford and this concealer are quite similar if not identical which makes sense since they are all under the Estée Lauder Umbrella although they do claim that they run their labs independently from each other. I still for some reason prefer the Tom Ford. Am I a snob or just delusional?!
