Estée Lauder Double Wear All-Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup SPF 30

With so many new BB Creams on the market, it can be hard to know which ones are worth picking up & trying out. I've been testing Estée Lauder's Double Wear All-Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup SPF 30 in Intensity 2.0* ($44/1 oz) for the past few weeks, and it's about time I shared my results!

Formulated with soft optics, it imparts a clear brilliance to skin, and it’s infused with vitamin E and C to provide antioxidant protection for a flawless, healthy glow." - Sephora

Estée Lauder's Double Wear All-Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup comes packaged in a sleek cream and gold plastic tube. The packaging is simple and classy, fitting in perfectly with the Estée Lauder brand image. This BB Cream is available in 8 shades, or intensities. Intensity 2.0 is a touch too dark for my skin tone, but once I have a bit of a Summer tan, I think that this shade will match perfectly. Since this formula does contain SPF 30, it does have a bit of that traditional sunscreen scent.

This BB Cream has a medium-thick consistency, and offers light to medium coverage. As the name suggests, this formula gives my skin a beautiful glowy finish, but don't worry - it won't make you look oily. I think that this formula would be better suited towards those with dry to combination skin types, as it might be too glowy for those with already oily skin. This BB Cream blends out easily, and I like to just use my fingers to apply it. If you're having a good skin day, then this will be all you'll need. If you have a few spots or problem areas, then you'll need to use a bit of concealer to get them covered up completely. I love the original Double Wear Foundation formula, and I'm happy to say that this new Double Wear BB Cream also stays all day long without fading, oxidizing, or melting off your face.

This is a pricier option for a BB Cream, but I do think that it's a quality product. If you enjoy Estée Lauder's Double Wear Foundation, but want something a bit more lightweight, with light to medium coverage, then you'll really enjoy this formula. 

Are you a fan of the BB Cream trend? What formula is your favourite?

  2. I love BB creams but tend to stick to the Asian brands. I just find that they work better for me.

  6. It really looks quite good, my few experiences with high end bb creams were real duds in my opinion. Too sheer, too light coverage and I needed lots of powder to keep them on during the day so this one looks much better, creamy and has what seems to be good coverage! I've yet to try any of the DW foundations but would love to!

    1. I'm always disappointed when a BB cream offers minimal coverage! I like that this one has buildable coverage :)

    1. This doesn't have as much coverage as the foundation, but it's a good lighter alternative for Summer! :)
