Video: Do These Foundations Pass The Sweat Test?

The first time I tried Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation was at my sister's wedding. Now, I'm not usually a full-coverage foundation kinda girl, but when you get your makeup done at 10am and you plan on being the last one of the dance-floor, you need a foundation with serious staying power. 18 hours of staying power, to be exact.

I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY by how long the foundation lasted. It did not budge. I dusted my skin halfway through the night with IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores, and I was ready to get back to my sweaty dancefloor sesh.

In the words of Carrie Bradshaw, I couldn't help but wonder: how can we sweat test all of our best-selling full coverage foundations? So we created this video, just in case you're planning to run a marathon anytime soon in full coverage foundation.

Our best-selling full-coverage foundation is a cult for a reason! It's buildable coverage in a semi-matte finish. It will withstand heat, humidity and, as you can see in the video, exercise to stay in place all day (and night!) long.

If you've got oily skin, like me, this is perfect with its sweat- and humidity-resistant formula. It's medium-to-full buildable coverage and controls oil production with a matte finish.

Developed specifically for TV and film, this cult foundation is a fave of makeup artists. Ultra HD is buildable medium-to-full coverage with a natural, satin finish. The formula is infused with hyaluronic spheres for time-released hydration.

This matte version of the cult classic is an all-in-one product combines a full coverage foundation with a hydrating and anti-agening serum and a pore-minimisng primer. Plus an SPF40 sun protection factor!
