Estee Lauder Double Wear Review

Ohai! Happy Tuesday all! ^^

What’d be better to start this week than a review, yes? Today I have something that you foundation junkie out there would love!


I have 2 products from Estee Lauder, a liquid foundation and a powder. Let’s start with the foundation first…


Description from the Website:

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation
Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10

15-hour staying power. Flawless all day.
This worry-free, long-wearing foundation makeup stays fresh and looks natural through heat, humidity, nonstop activity.
Won't change colour, smudge or come off on clothes.
Feels lightweight and comfortable.
Now the flawless look you see in the morning is the look you keep all day.


  • Oil-free
  • Dermatologist-tested
  • Non-acnegenic
  • Fragrance-free


It’s in a beautiful sturdy bottle. I like the classic, timeless Estee Lauder design. 


I got myself the Sand shade, as the BA advised.


The bottle doesn’t have pump, so I have to turn it upside down if I want to get it out.


The ingredients. It has SPF 10 so it helps a bit with sunscreen power.


The swatch, it matches my NC 25 skin.


After some moisturizer and 1 layer of the foundation only

What I like from this foundation is the long-lasting power, Yes.. So true.. I can wear it for all day, all night and it’s still there, doesn’t budge.

I prefer to use slightly wet beauty blender sponge to apply since when I tried to use brush, it become too streaky. With a damp sponge it makes the application easier so I can lightly push the foundation to the skin.

It gives high coverage, I must say it’s almost opaque coverage, because it conceals most of my acnes, which doesn’t happen very often with other foundation, I still have to use lots of concealer. But this one doesn’t need much concealer. I just add another thin layer on the spots and the blemish is invisible. 

However, the pour-bottle design can be very messy, If I’m not careful with it, I can get too much. Other than that, I love it.

Ok, moving on to the powder…


Description from the Website:


Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Powder Makeup

8-hour staying power. Flawless all day.
This worry-free powder makeup stays fresh, looks natural and won't change color, even through nonstop activity.
Glides on silky smooth, stays on comfortably, without feeling dry. Oil-absorbing.
For a continuously flawless look, without touch-ups.


  • Oil-free
  • Dermatologist-tested
  • Non-acnegenic
  • Fragrance-free
  • Photo-friendly


My shade is Tawny.


The sponge applicator is on separate plastic, but I don’t use this, I use my own powder brush. I’ll keep this as backup. :)


The pretty logo made me reluctant to swatch it, but here it goes..


The shade is a bit darker to my skin tone, but still blends well. It gives my face warmer tone because of its yellow undertone.


I use this  after using the Double Wear Foundation and I think it’s a great powder. Both foundation and powder has SPF 10 so there’s no noticeable white cast on pictures, but I have to apply sunscreen with higher SPF beforehand.

The coverage is not as heavy as the foundation, but it has long lasting power too. When I use this sparingly with a kabuki brush, it’s a great setting powder and really holds the makeup in place. The oil control is good, I don’t have to blot as often.

FOTD using both Estee Lauder Double Wear:


Great coverage and long lasting power! Killer combo!

I hope you enjoy this review and I’ll see you in the next post! ^^
