Review: Estée Lauder Double Wear All Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup

Estée Lauder Double Wear All Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup

When I first read about the new Estée Lauder Double Wear All Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup (‘BB’) I was pretty excited: a hybrid foundation combining great coverage and a dewy/glowy finish…that’s basically the Holy Grail as far as I am concerned. I anticipated the  BB to have the same coverage and longevity of Double Wear Light (‘DWL’), with the glowy finish of, say, the Dior Diorskin Nude BB Creme. Nope.

America Haul Part One: The Make-Up
