I am such a sucker for a nice lady on a make-up counter. I only popped into Selfridges to replace my Mac eyeliner, but it was right next door to the Estee Lauder counter and things just happen when someone persuades me that a little pot of goodness is going to change my life...
Actually the assistant didn't give me a hard sell at all. I was nearly through my Double Wear light foundation and after hearing really good things about the 'normal' version I decided to see if I could get a tester to take home and try out. Twenty minutes later, a good natter with the lady at the counter and a face full of makeup which looked rather lovely if I do say so myself and I was walking away with a small fortune in makeup!
I really do love the foundation, it makes my skin look great, and is a good match to my natural colour, so I look like me, just better! My skin doesn't seem that happy with me wearing it everyday though, so I'm trying to restrict it to a bit on my cheeks and round my eyes.I've also learnt a clean foundation brush is vital to it looking at all natural!
