Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation Review

I'm lost for words, yes a beauty blogger who tries hundreds of products is lost for words. This foundation restored my faith in the beauty world, a foundation that covers dark spots? is this for real?
Dark spots, crusty spots (yes gross but the job needs to be done), oily skin, dry patches, break outs. This foundation can deal with it all! 
If you don't like a heavy coverage, then this foundation is not for you, if you do, splendid carry on reading!
I love a good old heavy coverage foundation, for me I see it as, why bother wearing foundation if you want the lightest one going? Just go bare. I was shocked at how good this coverage was, my concealers have been very lonely in my muji draws untouched. My powder has also been gathering cob webs as this foundation just stays on the skin so long that I don't feel a need to waste my powder. It is a 3 in one really.
So far it hasn't broken me out and I have been using it for coming up to a month. My only fault is the packaging. Glamorise?  ticked, looks nice on the beauty desk? ticked. But if I were to ever drop this product the glass would just be sprayed across my bath room floor and I would be left with nothing more than a pretty gold lid. Also their is no pump so the product has a mind of its on and just spills all over my hand and I end up wasting half of it. Which for a £28.50 foundation is not what I want to be doing!
Another amazing point to make about this foundation is that it keeps skin looking fabulous, breathing comfortably through heat, humidity and activity without changing colour, fading or coming off on clothes. Natural matte finish and SPF10 sunscreen to protect skin. Application tip: For best results, apply your Double Wear Stay-in-Place Make-up SPF 10 with a Foundation Brush on top of your Repair and Moisturiser products.
I have found that in stead of spilling the product over the back of my hand if I place my brush on top then pour the tiniest amount and dab it on both cheeks, fore head and chin then blend that I don't waste any product and that way I don't end up caking it all on!

Have you tried this foundation or have any more to recommend?
