Long Lasting Foundation

I'm looking for a foundation that will stay on my skin so long that I wonder if it's bionic. I don't want to apply it with a trowel, but I'm positive that there has to be a wonder product out there that will last all day?

I'm up at 6:30am and get home around 8pm - by lunchtime my make up has all but disapeared - I swear they do it so that you have to reapply and go through more product!

I like the YSL one with the brush. Will find link.

By Terry's Eclat Opulent is wonderful. It looks as good at the end of the day as at the start. It's quite expensive but you use very little and it makes your skin look great!

Quite expensive is an understatement, it's a hundered quid a pot!

I'm still searching. Even Estee Lauder double wear doesn't cut it for me. I'm so oily, bleh!

A good primer helps, by the way.

Ive tried EVERYTHING and Estee Lauder Doublewear is the business. Use a primer first, apply with a brush, set with a little powder. Job done. Is bombproof on me : )

The ones people usually recommend are Estee lauder double wear, Revlon Colourstay, Rimmel 25 hour. They're all good long lasting foundations.

What primer do you use, Gillybobs?

Gillybobs Thu 08-Sep-11 15:58:34

either the Clarins one in a red pot, think its called Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch (or summat!) or Philosophy The Present. Both v good

Bobbi Brown foundation sticks.

Lasts me all day from 7am until 10pm if I need it to smile

Perfect - Double Stay it is then! I'll get it at the weekend - thanks girls!

I've just bought MAC pro-longwear and it's amazing. It looks as good in the evening when I'm taking it off as it did when I put it on. I couldn't get a good match in the Double Wear.

I have just discovered estee Lauder double wear light, it's AMAZING! Light and natural but covers blemishes and lasts all day. I am converted!

Another vote for EL Double Wear Light. Lovely and natural looking. lasted me from 7am until 10pm yesterday. That has never happened before. I do find I need to do moisturiser, primer and concealer properly to get the full effect though. Doesn't seem to be a quick way around an all day face though.

same here Vizzini i couldnt get a match either. Mac foundation and colours are fabulosa.

EL Double Wear. Is great. But you do have to put it on properly.
Don't, however, bother with the Double Wear mascara which is clumpy waxy shite.

Dior Forever foundation. I've done make up for a number of brides and this is what I use for the majority of them. It can be worn quite sheer or it can be layered to give a thicker coverage.

MAC primer def. makes a huge difference to staying power, and I love the Giorgio Armani Luminous Foundation for fabulously glowing skin.
