Today I am going to share my review about Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation
that I got from Estee Lauder Indonesia's event to celebrated their new counter design on last May. And you can click HERE if you have not read my event report!
Umm actually I have tried their digital iMatch device, which helps to find the perfect foundation shade that matches your skin tone. But unfortunately my shade was out of stock at the time, so they gave me this shade instead, and they told me to exchange it at their other counters. But for some reasons, I was not able to exchange this foundation in the end duh!
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. Non-acnegenic. Dermatologist and Ophthalmologist-tested.
This foundation comes in a frosted glass bottle with a golden twist-off cap, which looks simple yet luxurious. And it contains 30 ml of the product inside. It is quite weighty and fragile, but I think it is still travel-friendly because the bottle is quite small.
And the only thing that I dislike about the packaging of this foundation is the pour-bottle design! Ugh I think it would be so much easier if they provide a pump, because it is very hard for me to pour out the perfect amount of this foundation without spilling it everywhere.
Uh-oh, the cap and the top of the bottle could get messy as well!
This Warm Creme 3W0 has a yellow undertone. And yes, this shade is too dark and too orangey for me, which makes my face look a bit dull.. as I guessed ugh!
But here is my tip if you have a foundation that is too dark for you.. So I usually apply a lighter compact powder over my foundation to lighten it up LOL.
It provides medium to full coverage, and it is buildable. Actually one layer is more than enough for me - psst.. less is more! It blurs out my imperfections - including my acne scars and the redness around my nose. But sometimes when I have a lot of pimples on my face, I prefer to apply a concealer for more coverage, because it would be cakey, heavy, and look unnatural if I apply too many layers of this foundation, and I am sure no one wants this to happen eh?
This foundation dries quickly once applied to the face, but it is still easy to spread on the face, and it has a semi-matte finish. But unfortunately, it gives a white cast in a flash photography!
This foundation does not transfer. And this foundation is water-resistant, which is perfect for those who live in a tropical country where the weather is hot and humid almost all year round, like in Indonesia! And do not worry, it is very easy to remove with an oil-based makeup remover.
And actually it looks so much better in pictures than in real life, because it does not look too dark haha, so I use this foundation only for my makeup tutorials and I would remove my makeup immediately after I take some pictures - no more than 3 hours LOL. That is why I can not comment about the staying power of this foundation, sorry!
Overall.. this foundation is perfect for those who have oily-combination skin type, like mine. This foundation is available at any Estee Lauder counters, and you can purchase this foundation for IDR 450.000. Yeah I know it is quite pricey, but it is really worth the money
especially if you can find the perfect shade for your skin tone!
So, have you ever tried this foundation?
