Meet The Cult Foundation That Boosted Our Readers’ Confidence

Earlier this year, we launched our official Gritty Pretty Gang – a VIP club of readers who form our exclusive Trial Team (if you aren’t signed up, don’t worry – you can sign up here!).

Every month, we hand pick a number of special readers to trial both new and cult beauty products for us and report back with only their honest and true feedback, which is published on

This month, we enlisted friends – Amber & Charlotte, Sach & Annabelle and Mandy & Po – and asked them to put Australia’s #1 liquid foundation to the test. Available in 61 shades (yes, that many!) and suitable for dry, normal and combination skin, it’s no surprise that other women instantly fall in love with Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10 with 14 bottles sold every minute around the world.

Like you, these women lead their own busy lives: managing households and maintaining relationships and social lives – some working full-time careers and some working the job that never clocks off: raising children. These women were most qualified to test and see if this foundation (which is available in 61 shades and suitable for dry, normal and combination skin) can go the distance and won’t fade, smudge or budge.

Watch the videos below to see exactly what they had to say.
