Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Dual Effect Powder Makeup in Sand

My skin type is oily, so pressed powder is a must for me! I usually don't go for powder foundations though, as I tend to find them looking flat out matte. But not today, not now! I think I've met my HG powder foundation in Estee Lauder.

I received this cute sample from the Double Wear Foundation Exchange event last year. Even at just 0.95g, this one lasted me for weeks even with everyday use.

It comes with a soft puff. This type of packing reminds me of Maybelline Clear Smooth All In One Shine-Free Foundation TO GO due to its size. Just the packaging, not the formula! (Maybelline has 3.5g of product though, and it comes with a mirror though.)

However, I still prefer using a super soft flat-top brush to apply the powder on my face.

When worn

In this shot, I am wearing Benefit's Fake Up in Light on my undereyes, and only this powder foundation from Estee Lauder.

  • I am in LOVE with this powder since it makes my skin look perfect with just a few brush strokes. The redness and uneven skin tone are gone almost instantly.
  • It feels unbelievably light on my skin even with its medium coverage.
  • It keeps my skin matte for about half a day. Retouch once and you're good for the entire day.
  • It doesn't transfer as much whenever I wipe my face with tissue.
  • I wore this to a day trip where I encountered the weirdest weather condition (sunny-rainy-sunny-rainy again), and this one lasted me the entire day while making me look as if I'm not wearing any makeup.
  • It does not oxidize even on my oily skin.
  • It looks good on photos.
  • It has SPF 10 PA++.
  • It didn't cause my skin to break out. 
  • Sand is a good match for my skin tone.

  • It's expensive. (But it's well worth it!)

Price: About P2,000.00+ (for the full size)
Available in Estee Lauder counters at Rustans Makati, Shangri-la, Alabang, Gateway, Cebu, and Essenses Rockwell
