Estée Lauder Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup


Estée Lauder takes it's popular Double Wear Makeup To Go Liquid Compact to the next level with their Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup, an innovative stick that combines liquid makeup with a pro tool applicator. This all in one product which is like a cushion compact in stick form comes filled with a version of the brand's high performance, long wearing Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup which has been reformulated to provide instant hydration and a luminous finish.

As someone who jumped on the cushion foundation trend a few years ago and never looked back, this packaging is quite exciting to me. I've always liked the convenience of stick foundation but the formulations generally aren't that friendly for dry skin and I strayed away from liquid foundations because they can require more effort to apply. I'll just say it, I'm lazy when it comes to makeup. This cushion stick makes application quick, easy and effortless.

Application
To dispense the product, lightly swivel the base in a counterclockwise direction until the foundation comes out of the top of the sponge tip. If too much product comes out, you can actually just twist the base clockwise to pull it back into the tube which is pretty cool if you ask me. Touch the product across forehead, nose, cheeks and chin and gently buff on using the sponge and then blend with the sponge or your fingers until you achieve your desired coverage. The sponge applicator can be used to simultaneously buff and blend which is my preferred method.  The sponge tip also allows you to easily target application on areas that require additional coverage. And if you're worried about the hygiene factor of the sponge, Estée Lauder has you covered because it can be easily removed for washing. They suggest washing it with mild soap and warm water which I did and it was like new afterwards. Since the cushion applicator can be removed you can also forgo the use of it should you choose. This is useful if you want to blend several shades together or just prefer to use a different type of applicator entirely.

Finish, Coverage & Wear
Estée Lauder Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup offers light to medium coverage with a satin slightly dewy finish. The product has a luscious creamy texture and I couldn't discern any fragrance which is always a win. I would say the coverage is variable since you can apply it with a very light hand for a natural, no makeup makeup look and or build it up for fuller coverage. The formula evens out my skin and diffuses the look of my pores while feeling lightweight and comfortable to wear. It provides that natural almost imperceptible look like your skin but polished and better. The product claims a wear time of 8 hours and I would say that it holds up pretty well to that. My face would maintain a fresh and smooth appearance after up to 10 hours of wear without the use of any powder, primer or any touchups. For the record, I don't wear powder and I rarely touch up my makeup. I have tried it with primer and I didn't see a huge difference to when I went without. The hydration effects are immediately noticeable upon application and last through the day. The winter weather has been making some of my base products pill up and emphasize the dry patches on my skin lately and I haven't had any such issues with this foundation. I'm not sure how it would fare for oilier skin types but I would say this product is fantastic if you have dry to normal skin though the latter might require a setting powder.

Shade Range
Estée Lauder Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup is available in 20 color true shades ranging from fair to dark with cool, warm and neutral undertones to accomodate a spectrum of skintones. I usually favor Asian base products because Western ones tend to be too pink for my skin so I was thrilled to see some shades with yellow undertones among the samples I received. After some testing, I found that 1W2 Sand is my perfect shade match for the moment and I think  3W1 Tawny could possibly be my summer shade. I actually mixed the two together and it gives the appearance of a lovely glow.

My Impressions
I think the Estée Lauder Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup is a game changer. The packaging is about as close as you can get to making foundation application both effortless and foolproof and the portable stick is as convenient for everyday use as it is for travel or touch ups on the go. And it gets points for a varied range of shades. I really like the lightweight feel and luminous, fresh faced glow it imparts. This product is suitable whether you prefer sheer natural coverage or full yet natural looking coverage. And it works well enough for spot coverage that I can forgo concealer when using it. In testing this foundation over a span of a few weeks, I didn't experience any reactions or breakouts but I did get a few compliments on how my skin didn't look like I was wearing any makeup. It delivers on it's claims for wear and did not dry out my skin at any point. The above photo was taken after about 7 hours of wear, worn over VDL Lumilayer Primer (review to come). My face is still dewy, the color has stayed true and it hasn't settled into lines or caked up at all.

  1. I love the finish and look on you. And it really seems to be convenient, but I tend to prefer a non-dewy finish. Totally off trend, I know.

  2. What a fantastic product! Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude cushion does sound like a game changer. I love the fact that it is both alcohol and oil free. It is great that it provides great coverage and that you don't even need to use a concealer with it. It seems like a perfect foundation to me.

    I do really like the packaging. That sponge seems like a great tool for helping us apply the product easily and evenly...it is wonderful that the sponge can be removed and washed easily. Plus, the product can be used without it. For those that use blenders and other make up tools this is sure an additional plus.

    Thanks for the heads up about this. I like the fact that you can build up the coverage, and yay for this application sponge! That's a game changer indeed. Great that it's easy to clean, and that you can pull back on the amount of product released. Will check this out for sure:)
    Happy Monday!

  12. Your skin looks lovely and the coverage is pretty great. I love the convenience (I'm also super lazy) and the applicator looks great. How fab that the sponge is washable! Count me in!

  13. Great reviews, Rowena! You look flawless yet natural! I'm impressed to learn about the applicator (retractable) and washable applicator heads - it also seems that you can use it using a brush or fingertips. I've only tried the iconic Double Wear from the brand but maybe I should take a look at other ranges, too. The color range is great.

    Have a great week! :)

  14. I really like the way this looks! I have not tried many Estée Lauder makeup products but by the looks of the colours it seems to have my shade. It's difficult to match because of yellow in my skin but I have tried Clinique's makeup stick but want to try some cushion foundations this year. Currently use Lancome and Nars at the moment when I actually wear foundation for light coverage. Thanks for sharing, Rowena! Happy new week to you!

  19. First time that I read about this makeup product. I have to get my hands on this because as you say, it would be perfect for travelling; it would mean that in the future I can leave brushes and beautyblender at home.

  21. I like the way it looks on you, Rowena. The perfect shade, I would say. Beautiful and detailed review, TFS! I tried EL's double wear but unfortunately for me it goes into every crease and wrinkle and it sticks to dry patches. Everyone looks so radiant with this foundation but me :( Happy new week, girl.

  22. At the beauty event that I went to over the weekend, they talked a lot about the Estee Lauder double wear products. I think the packaging looks wonderful -- would need to find a deeper shade for myself, though.

  23. This sounds right hop my alley and judging from your swatches, Tawny is the perfect shade for me. I have read mixed reviews on this but I do trust your reviews so this will be next on my list to try.

  24. Hmmm I have never used a cushion stick foundation before. I am actually using a liquid from Estee Lauder right and am almost out, maybe I will try this!

  25. It sounds like an amazing foundation and love the fact that it didn't dry out your skin. That's a plus for me as I am on the dry side. I however don't think I will like the applicator though. Great review.

  26. I was concerned when I first saw the sponge because all I could think of is product build up and germs and all sorts of yucky stuff. That's so cool that you can remove the sponge and wash it off! Than it itself makes this a revolutionary product! I still have yet to open the bottle of ELL I bought on Black Friday but now I'm excited to go out and give this new cushion stick version a go XD

  28. Ahh as soon as I saw an image from this post on your Instagram I've been SO looking forward to reading it! The packaging alone is gorgeous and I adore how they've made the sponges easy to remove for washing, that was my primary concern. Fabulous review, Rowena!

  32. Rowena, I am intrigued! I think it's ingenious that they've come up with a stick cushion form! I've always wanted to try Estee Lauder Double Wear, so I will look into this. I usually need full coverage, so I may have to go with the liquid. But I'll see. Excellent review!
