How many foundations, eyeliners, finishing powders and other makeup items have we ladies gone through to find our favorites? There were times I thought I had found my chosen ones in the past, but yet I kept on being inquisitive enough to try another eye shadow shade, or lip color. But now I can honestly say that these seven makeup items are just about irreplaceable to me. I certainly wouldn’t change them by choice. That’s not to say that I don’t pick up a new lip balm now and then, especially anything that looks plum – my weakness.
1. Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup
This most amazing foundation goes on flawlessly with a foundation brush, and stays on from early in the morning to late at night. When I am ready to remove this foundation in the evening, I honestly cannot see a difference from when it was first applied. You can’t say that with any conviction about most makeup items. Double Wear is considered a semi-matte that is buildable. Oh, one final thought. This foundation does not come with a pump, so I just purchase the inexpensive pump applicator from MAC (owned by none other than Estee Lauder), then cut to size at an angle, so it doesn’t sit flat in the bottle and impede the pumping action.
