I am gonna be reviewing my holy grail foundation, Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10 :D. I've been searching for a miracle foundation to cover my acne-prone skin and found it!

The price is slightly cheaper (MYR 145) than my Bobbi Brown foundation and the coverage and staying power are really better than that foundation. I thought it was really a bargain considering how good the product is.  I've got to know about this product while searching for a good foundation coverage for acne skin on Youtube :)

The Packaging

It comes in a pretty glass bottle however there is no pump provided with product, which makes it hard and unhygienic to use. I have to be cautious to not to waste any product everytime I use it. When I used it for the first time, I stained my hands and my handbag which was unfortunately placed beside my makeup table :|
I got free samples!!
The Product

The consistency of the product is very thick and not runny, and it does not smell like a perfume at all, which a plus thing for me since I do not like my makeup reeks of heavy perfume. I have been applying this foundation with my 130 MAC foundation brush and I think it's a bit sticky on my face but then it soon goes away after a while.  However I have to make sure to blend it very quickly as it dries really fast after applying it on my face.The good thing is I don't have to bother wearing any pressed powder as the foundation sets nicely on its own. And the best part is it does not break me out. :D

The Pros

  1. Medium to heavy coverage, perfect for acne scarred skin.
  2. Does not break me out.
  3. No scent of perfumes.
  4. Classy packaging.
  5. Durability - 24 months after opened. Usually a foundation will only have a shelf life of 12 months. Great bargain!

The Cons

  1. Dries up quickly.
  2. No pump provided! Some users bought MAC Foundation pump as the bottle fits with it. 
  3. The price is still pretty much expensive than any other foundation.

And I'll definitely going to buy this foundation again.


  1. Hi what shade do you use for the doublewear?
