Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation Review

September 28, 2014

Hi, what is full coverage foundation that you like? I read and watched a lot of reviews about estee lauder double wear foundation and they said it's great product, full coverage, long lasting and good oil control. Now, it's my turn to share what I think about estee lauder double wear foundation :)
Let see about the packaging, it has a glass of bottle packaging. I think that it looks sleek but I'm afraid of it will be broken if I drop it. Someday I'm accidentally drop double wear foundation bottle and it was fine. However, don't try to drop it because you want to prove it XD
There is warning direction in the back. This foundation comes with spf 10. I like if it has more high spf but it's better than never has it.
The claim are:
For all skin type. 
This remarkable lasting, yet lightweight makeup wears comfortably up to 15 hours, even in high humidity. 
Won't smudge or come off on clothes. 
Oil free. 
Fragrance free. 
Dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested
I got shade that whiter than my skin but I just love whiter than darker if I choose shade of foundation. I know, the right is choose the right shade that really same with my skin tone but sometimes I didn't have any option or I just wrong pick any of them. It consist of 1 FL. OZ or 30 ml. I got 1W2 or sand 36 shade. Estee lauder has 30 shades but in Indonesia just available some of them.
Swatch on my hand (Sand 36 or 1W2)
Texture is liquid and lightweight, it claims that is fragrance free but I smelt a little bit strange. I'm bad to describe smell but it wasn't nice at all. But the smell isn't really strong, still fine. It dries fairly quickly, it will dry as quick as the foundation blends in my face. So, I must blend it in my face evenly and quickly as possible. If I didn't, it will give cakey and patchy looking finish. I took enough time to choose what tool will nicely working to apply it. I tried stippling brush, small foundation brush, sponge, beauty blender and my clean fingers. Beauty blender and my clean fingers blend the foundation nicely on my skin but the others just failed.
You can see at the picture, the foundation covers some spots but some of them still visible. Because the foundation is quite tricky, I don't like to add more layers on my skin. It will look cakey especially on my nose. It matte finish looking but the staying power isn't until 15 hours in my face, just like the claim. Maybe it will stay until 5 hours in outdoor and 6-7 hours indoor. Maybe my face is super duper oily so it wasn't long lasting at all in my face. The foundation didn't smudge and if I blot my face with tissue and it didn't transfer at all. Loose powder will help a lot to make the foundation stay longer, I don't know what is wrong with my face but if I add loose powder or compact powder it gives some scratch on my forehead :( 
The good things are it didn't make my skin breakout and I didn't feel heavy at all using this foundation.
Because it's tricky foundation for me, here some tips for using it if you want get natural finish: 
~ don't put more layers foundation, just once. You still can cover with concealer
~ it will look cakey, so blend it quickly as possible,
~ put thin loose powder with pat it with powder brush. 
It quite helps for me. I know that double wear foundation great for a lot of people but it wasn't great  for me :( The price is expensive because it wasn't great for me, it doesn't worth at all :(
