If you’re me, then you may have had a “problem” at some point in your makeup life when you had more foundations that you could finish.
I mean, you’ve scaled back but…there’s still…some….In any case! Etude House came out with their Double Lasting Foundation, I was pumped. I had heard it was a dupe for Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Foundation, and while I’ve never worn that one before, I like matte foundations. I couldn’t help myself.
Etude House originally came out with 5 shades and added 3 new shades! I chose the shade Amber (darkest) because I never fit any of the other shades, like, ever. I’ve never been matched at MAC before but I can only guess that I’m an NC 30-35 (please check out My Shade References page to see what else I match!).
To be honest, this doesn’t even look that dark…
Box info about the foundation.
The foundation is housed in a glass bottle with a pump!
Thank goodness for a pump 🙂 The cap kind of fits a little loosely, but it doesn’t come off. There’s no satisfying click noise when you push the cap down to signify its closure. Oh well.
Here’s the shade. Looks very yellow and might be a good match!
Here’s my naked face.
And here’s my face with the foundation! I applied 1 layer.
The color looks a little light in this lighting (indoor, natural light). I didn’t wear a powder or primer (!) when I wore this out for around ~8 hours.
Here’s another pic of it in artificial lighting (my hand for reference).
Apologies for no outside, in the sunlight pics. I was in a hurry to get to work and then to my internship place right afterwards. I’ve asked my bf how it looks and he said it looks natural.
Here’s how it looks after 8 hours.
As you can see, I’m shiny and my pores are a little visible but my bronzer held up pretty well! That’s a win in my book. While I think the shade match is a little light, I can work with it. Right now, I mix this in with my NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint in St. Moritz to get a shade that’s slightly dark.
I would definitely use this with a primer to help my pores and the shininess as well as a powder, if you’re combo/oily like myself. I don’t touch up my makeup at all throughout the day, so I try to make sure my bases are covered when I leave the house. I don’t have the time for reapplication, anywhere.
Overall, I like this foundation. I would keep using this. If you’re interested, you can find this on Jolse or RoseRoseShop (where I bought mine). Oddly enough, the official Etude House website doesn’t have the new shades in stock.
