Estee Lauder Invisible Fluid Makeup Review

This is in serious competition with Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua to be my new favourite foundation!
[I squealed with excitement down the phone to my mum who said ' they are all good' ...ehhh sorry they just aren't!! She's advertently trying to control my spending haha.]


''See no makeup. Feel no makeup™.
First-ever IntuiTone™ technology guarantees your true-to-life shade and keeps it real in every light.
Fresh, flawless, radiant. Ultra light, ultra breathable, oil-free. It will change how you feel about makeup forever.
In long-lasting shades for every beautiful skintone.Weightless, buildable coverage. Air-infused with every shake. Blends so perfectly for the look and feel of bare skin-only better.
Lasts all day. Controls excess oil. Won't clog pores''.

My opinion:
I received a sample of this in 2WN1. I've been so lucky with sample shades recently. The 2WN1 was perfect for me. Again, quite a yellow toned foundation, but I have neutral skin so it blended in really well. It covers and evens skintone but lets your own skin shine through at the same time.
It's so light that I didnt feel I was wearing foundation at all.
It's oil-free and it lasted a good 8hrs without primer before I needed to blot my T-zone.
The finish is just lovely.
 It is more of a natural matte finish- so it let's natural dewyness come through without making the face look shiny. It's not as dewy as Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua so this would really work for an oily comibination skin/oily skin if you primered and powdered. It has a really smooth texture which blends extremely well, giving you just the right amount of time to play about with it before it sets. The coverage is so hard to describe because this does even out skintone and cover redness/blemishes to a good extent, but at the same time maintains a really  ''I'm not wearing any foundation, I just have amazing skin'' no-make up look. I barely had to conceal my blemishes, just under my eyes.

Best for:
I'd say this would work for the majority of skin types. Doesn't cling to dry patches, so works for dry and dry/combination skin (which I have), yet doesn't slide off my oily nose so would work really well, as I said, with primer and powder for combination/oily and oily skins.


Yes! I think I may buy this instead of Chanel's Vitalumiere Aqua, but I love them both!
If you love VA but think it's a bit too dewy then go for this.


 Invisble but flawless finish... Win!
