So I'm about to run out of my BB cream and instead of buying it again I want to trial wearing something a little more foundation-like.
This is what I'm after:
- Nothing that's very heavy/matte
- Doesn't make the lines in your face stand out (I'm 35 years old)
- Prepared to pay up to $50 if it's amazing stuff
- Would not look odd if worn without much other make up (I keep a minimal look most of the time, e.g. just mascara/blush/concealer for dark eye circles).
I have looked at some reviews for Estee Lauder Double Wear - can anyone recommend this, or something else?

Thanks in advance y'alls.

I love love love Napolean, it's a little above your $50 budget, I think it's $65 or $70, but it lasts forever, a little goes a loooooong way!

I tried a foundation last weekend that was amazing and fits the brief for natural no heavy suffocating light weight cover. It's the Georgio Armani 'Maestro Fusion Make-up' it comes in a glass bottle and you apply with a little dropper, so a little goes a long way. It made the skin look luminous and it really feels like you have no make up on. If you google the name, you can read up some more about it, but having tried it, it was amazing and seeing it on my friend, again, her skin looked amazing.
Loving your new avvy by the way!

I love MAC and it's bang on budget at $50. On its own, without powder, it has a nice dewy finish and provides good coverage without heaviness.
(ETA - I wear Studio Fix, but the staff at the MAC counter are really helpful with working out exactly which one will suit your requirements)
Estee Lauder double wear is really heavy.
Your best bet is to head to the beauty section at Myer and test them all out.
A good, cheaper foundation that isn't heavy is Maybelline SuperStay. Even the Maybelline Fit Me foundation is great.

I don't wear foundation but I've heard nude is good. And light.
