Converting a MAC foundation pump to fit Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation

Just a quick post today to say - I found a solution for the annoying packaging on my newly found Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation. I'd heard on the grapevine (or just through google) that the MAC foundation pump fitted the Estee Lauder bottle perfectly - so when I was doing an order the other day to top up my supply of Pro Longwear concealer, I popped one in the basket to try it out!




When the foundation pump first comes, it's a little long for the container - so I had to cut a small section off the end. If you're doing it, make sure you cut it at an angle, so that the foundation doesn't become stuck at the end of it.



And the pump fits perfectly! It even comes with a little cap so that it's not accidentally spilt, and the cap twists to lock it shut.
I'm so happy I've found something that takes this foundation from being amazing to being my all time holy grail foundation - yay!
