Deciding on a foundation formula can be pretty tricky and as usual, BN Beauty is out here trying to make your life easier – one beauty solution at a time. We took a day out with the Beauty Revolution and Essenza teams to try out the Estee Lauder iMatch tool. Why? Shade selection is a real pain point for many of our BellaStylistas and when we heard there was a beauty technology to solve this, we jumped at the chance to give it a whirl!

Our mission: To figure out our perfect foundation shade and trial Estee Lauder’s best selling Doublewear Foundation and iMatch tool.
While indulging in sweet treats, we got the low-down on the best-selling Double Wear Stay-in-Place foundation that’s oil-free, long-wearing and transfer-resistant. The Essenza team gave us a quick overview of how the tool works and then used it to identify our skin tones and the perfect foundation for each person.
The team was super knowledgeable and the process takes into consideration your skin type, what you want from your foundation, the type of coverage and finish you prefer. Mary was 5N1.5 Maple (Neutral), Kelechi was 5N1 Amber Honey and Tito was 7W1 Deep Spice (Warm/Golden). We think the iMatch tool will be particularly helpful if you’re new to the Estee Lauder foundations and need assistance finding your exact shade.
As you can imagine we had a super time trying this out and we can’t wait to try our new foundation (PS: Did we mention its transfer-proof? Estee Lauder Doublewear foundation also comes in 55 shades and will definitely else the day may throw at you.)
The iMatch system is available at Estee Lauder counters at Essenza Beauty Bar at the Palms Mall in Lekki, Lagos, and Essenza in Jabi Lake Mall Abuja.
Annoying issues like a mismatch between how the foundation looks in the bottle versus how it shows up on your skin are now a thing of the past, thanks to the Estee Lauder iMatch tool…
