It's Estee Lauder The New Double Wear Nude Water Fresh foundation! Is it any good? What's the different with the usual Double Wear? Well, check out below!

     As a big fan of Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation, I must admit I was kinda excited to try this Double Wear Nude Water Fresh foundation. The original Double Wear is just amazing even though kinda tricky to blend at first. But I do love it as it given me a really good coverage. Well, before we start with my review, I'd like to share some product knowledge from the website about this new Double Wear Nude Water Fresh:

Real-skin flawless. Real protection. 24-hour staying power.

- Waterlight. This fluid, long-wear makeup feels like you have nothing on. Moves comfortably with your skin. Looks fresh, natural, healthy, even-toned.
- With SPF 30 and anti-oxidants, it’s your invisible defense against environmental damage from UV rays and pollution.
- Instantly and continuously hydrates with a moisture complex of red fruit extracts, including watermelon, lychee seed and apple.
- In shades for all skintones (but only 5 shades available in Indonesia: Bone, Desert Beige, Sand, Ivory Beige, and Tawny).


- Broad Spectrum SPF 30
- Anti-Pollution
- Oil-Free
- Hydrating
- Ophthalmologist-tested
- Dermatologist-tested
- Non-Acnegenic; Won’t Clog Pores
- Fragrance-Free

     Anyway, even though I'm excited, at first I didn't really have a high expectation for this new one. Since I super need a good coverage (to cover acne, acne scars and other imperfections), while this one stated the coverage is only sheer to medium. So I didn't really know whether I'm going to like this or no. But you'll see!

      Let's see the packaging!

     The packaging is the same with the original Double Wear, with its classic, sophisticated and elegant dark blue box, gold font and glass bottle with gold cap. The different is that the bottle of this Nude Water Fresh is smaller and a bit thinner than the original. Well, just like the original, it doesn't have any pump, so be careful when pouring the foundation. I hate it because I always pour too much. I really hope they'll upgrade it soon to a pump version.

     Let's try to use this foundie! Swatch on my hand:

     Look at the texture, it's watery and light (so be careful when pouring this foundie). It's super easy to blend on the skin, but need a bit work to build it into medium coverage. Well, though the coverage is sheer to medium, I think it still can give full coverage if you're patient enough layering the foundation. It's super buildable and still doesn't feels heavy even though I layered a lot of this foundation to cover the imperfections on my face.

     See this swatch on my face if you don't believe it can actually give almost full coverage: 

     I love how it can be buildable to medium coverage without feeling heavy, it's still feels light. It's easy to blend and this shade fits me nicely. It also set up nicely with satin finish (giving you this fresh, dewy looking, perfect for daily wear). 

     So turns out it really doesn't stain and quite waterproof, because i wash my face for 3 times when using this (wudhu) and it still sat there nicely (I tried to rub my face on Ichi's clothes as well). But it stains a bit when my face gets real oily. Anyway, this foundation really last long, which is quite amazing for foundie that feels this light. The longest was when I used this for almost 12 hours and it still there, not oxidized or anything. Surely it was fading, but still sitting nicely on my face. Well after all they claimed to have 24 hour staying power, so no wonder it was still looking real nice after 12 hours.


    In the end, I should admit I'm in love with this foundation even though it takes time and a lot of the foundation to cover all of my imperfections. But who cares, this foundation is amazing. Lightweight and stays all day. Plus, it makes your skin feels alive and still looks fresh. This just became one of my favorite daily foundation.

+ light-medium coverage
+ perfect for daily use
+ light on the face
+ do not stain (except if your face already oily)
+ I think it's quite waterproof/ sweatproof
+ easy to blend
+ stays long (almost 12hr and still look great)
+ small, easy to carry
+ shade suit my skin
+ satin finish makes your skin looks fresh
+ doesn't clog my pores or making any acne so far

-  i need a lot to cover all the imperfections on my face
- need more time to cover imperfections (layer by layer)
- still no pump :(

Overall Rating: 4/5

    Well, even though it need more time to cover all of my imperfection like i mention before (which it still doing a good job anyway), I don't mind spending a little bit more time to get this kinda flawless looking and light result. Yup I love it anyway! Plus it doesn't stain (as long as my face not getting oily), so i should say it's actually quite safe to wash your face or getting a lot of sweat while using this.

Me using this foundie:

     That's it my review for now. If you're looking for a lightweight daily foundation, you might want to give it a try! See you guys on my next post!
