BB? CC? How confusing! And with so many products out on the market, how are we ever supposed to figure out what’s the best for our skin? It’s a difficult feat, but here at BeautyStat, we do the dirty (or glamorous) work for you. Estée Lauder is yet another beauty brand to jump on the BB Cream wagon. The competition is fierce, so how did this one match up?
Here’s some great news to tickle your fancy. Estée Lauder Double Wear All Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup SPF 30 is one of the best products I have tried on the market to date!
This is Estée Lauder’s first luminous, long-wear BB — and they sure hit the nail on the head. The brand claims this BB brightens, perfects and evens, while providing vitamin E and C with antioxidant protection and SPF 30.
I used this beauty balm in the color Intensity 2.0. It is completely odorless and coated my skin in one even application with a velvety matte finish. I have normal to oily skin, and the BB Cream lasted all day long, well over 8-hours. The lightweight, oil-free formula brightened my skin but did not make it shiny — and it evened out my skintone, which can be tough when you have as many freckles as I do.
I want to look natural, not cakey, and this creme looked effortlessly flawless. A little bit goes a long way, and the dense formula matches any skintone.
I also paired my BB with the Double Wear Brush-On Glow BB Highlighter. The BB highlighter and concealer brightens, perfects and corrects. It “minimizes imperfections including blemishes, dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles.”
I tried the shade 1C Light. The highlighter comes in an applicator brush that dispenses when twisting from the bottom. You simply twist, apply and blend. It’s super-silky and hydrating, giving the skin that “awakened” look.
It can be used underneath the eyes alone or over concealer to cover dark circles, or applied on the highest points of the face, like the cheek or brow bones to give the face some extra highlight. If you’re using this product purely as a highlighter, I would recommend an even lighter shade so that the light can bounce off more beautifully, especially at night.
I am totally in love with this product, especially because it is so easy to carry with you for touch-ups. I am always excited when you don’t really need to touch your face with your dirty hands in the middle of the day — this highlighter solves that problem easily. Not only did I get that amazing “awakened” look, I also had an overall glow on my face.
The BB pair is my new go-to products without a doubt. Though on the pricier side, you will definitely see a difference in the way your skin looks and holds up as the day goes by. You can go well into the night and never need to reapply your base. It’s totally worth it!
