I loved Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation so I was so excited to try the Stay-in-Place Flawless Wear Concealer. This concealer has a thick texture and but it is very easy to blend and it has medium coverage buildable to full coverage.
It is very long lasting and it blended in nicely with the foundation, however, it dry down my skin after few hours. Creases were showing under my eye areas and setting the concealer with powder just made it worse. I would only use it during summer and apply a small amount to prevent from creasing.
Achieve definitive, flawless skin with Estēe Lauder’s Double Wear Stay-in-Place Flawless Wear Concealer. Easily blendable, this budge-proof makeup is formulated with minerals and emollients that condition skin, leaving it soft and smooth instead of greasy. An oil-free formula that is transfer-resistant and color-true with medium, buildable coverage, it won’t slip off or melt away from water, perspiration, or humidity.
The concealer sets quickly and then stays put for the whole day. It just doesn’t budge. I tend to dab my face with a sheet of face tissue – post applying base makeup – to take care of excess base product and to check if base makeup has set or not.
Love the fact that the concealer sets even without any powder application on top. I still do use a setting powder for the whole face, but this concealer doesn’t really need one. It is transfer proof. It lasts whole day without cracking or drying out the undereye area. Neither does it melt off my oily skin.
The texture of the concealer is light and creamy. The blends really well and applies nicely to the skin, whether it be bare or covered with foundation. The concealer has a matte finish, with no shimmer particles evident. The pigment is also good, I would say the concealer provides a coverage of medium to full depending on how it is applied.
Using a colour corrector before applying the concealer improves the coverage you can achieve, especially regarding dark circles. The staying power is one of the biggest successes of this product. The concealer sets quickly after application and stays in place throughout the day/night.
I tend to set the concealer with a powder for special occasions, but for every day there really is no need. The product claims to be transfer-proof, and I haven’t seen anything to contradict this.
