Hallo adorable!

 Back side.

 Twist the cap to open. No pump whatsoever, be careful you might pour it too much.


SWATCH
Let's move to the swatch!
 First of all let see the swatch in my hand. As you can see the shade is perfect for fair skin with yellow undertone i guess since it's not pinkish. The consistency is light and watery making this quite easy to blend on the hand.

 Well, it really match my hand's skin tone. I can't really see harsh line after i applied it on the left side on my hand. But matching the face's skin tone is surely an another things hahaha. 

So recently i have a massive acne and redness (mixed with my allergy), and this foundation coverage is pretty cool, don't you think?

It maybe look too white, but actually it quite nice in real life, mostly if i already add shading and blush.


OVERALL REVIEW

     This product's coverage is actually good. It can cover blemishes, pimples, uneven skin tone and my acne scars quite nicely as you can see on the picture above. The texture is light and a bit watery, so it can easily blend. But, it also dries up fast if you blend it using hand, once it dries, you can't really blend it anymore and it's gonna feel quite sticky at first. So make sure you blend it fast and don't miss any spot!
     And well, i have tried it all day long up to 15hrs (when i was out to BBMeetUp few days back), it still stays on my face when i got home. But, after about 7 hours, i already felt my face a bit oily, so i touched up with a little powder using kabuki brush. It wasn't because the foundation already fade out, but only because i felt a little oily on my cheek. The foundation still stays amazingly after 7 hours in my face.

Well, the left one was 2hr after applying the foundation and the right one was after i touched up with tiny bit of powder.

     Plus, just like it claimed, it doesn't smudge on my clothes or my bf's (since i rest my cheek quite a lot on his chest hahaha). Plus it doesn't really smelly also, a bit disturbing if you put the bottle right under your nose, but doesn't really smell like anything when you apply it on your face. 

Pro:
+ lightweight
+ could stay up to 15hrs
+ match my skin tone
+ has a lot of shades
+ medium-high coverage
+ easy to find in any counter Estee Lauder in Indonesia
+ good oil control (7hrs it's quite something for my oily face)

Cons:
- dries quite fast and leaves a bit of sticky feeling when dries (but not for long)
- no pump, i can easily pour to much of it and i think it's not really hygienic too
- quite expensive
- only SPF 10/PA++, still need to put on sunscreen before using this

In conclusion this Estee Lauder Double Wear is good. Still worth the price and also worth to try!
 
Overall Rating: 4/5
