I’ve read so many good stuff about this Double Lasting Foundation and I really did expect a lot since I heard it’s a dupe for Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation (click here for my comparison video). So I asked Jolse to send me one to try out.
The box is pretty basic, nothing special really. The English information and ingredients are on one side of the box.
The bottle itself is gorgeous in my opinion. It looks amazing. With the matte – glossy cap and glass bottle. I just love glass bottles, mainly if they’re matte like this one. It just looks more luxurious or something. I don’t know, it just has that effect on me. It has a pump which is always a good thing. It makes it more hygienic than f.e. Big Cover Concealer BB (review will be soon on).
It comes in 30 g (1.05 oz.) bottle which is pretty normal for Etude House’s foundation since Big Cover Concealer BB comes with the same amount of product.
There are 5 shades available: Fair, Vanilla, Being, Sand and Tan.
Now let me just ask: what the hell is going on with shade names? When I was choosing the shade from Jolse‘s website, I was thinking about my Big Cover Concealer BB in the shade Vanilla, I thought that Double Lasting Foundation would have the same shade Vanilla but it does not? Look how different they are. The Double Lasting Foundation is way darker. That was kind of a turn down for me. I should have used my makeup rule to always choose the lightest shade. But well what can we do now, right? My mom said it looks good because I finally don’t look like a ghost. Well yeah but I’m orange like a pumpkin and I do not like the feeling. I hope that during the summer I will get a slightly golden tone so it will match a little bit better. However it doesn’t oxidize throughout the day so that’s a plus.
You’re supposed to shake it before using it. So keep that on mind.
The texture is very watery but it turns into a creamier texture once you start applying or rubbing it on the back of your hand.
It has SPF 34 PA++. A little strange number but okay. Use some good sun screen under it so you’re safe. I’m a freak, I like having SPF 50 on my skin, oops.
It dries pretty quickly so I recommend working in smaller sections, otherwise you might apply it too thickly. And because of this, it’s a little harder to blend since I’m used to tap it all over my face and then blend it out with Missha Air in Puff.
It smells like peaches and it’s a little too strong for my liking. Like it’s not crazy strong but you definitely smell peaches everywhere around you while applying it.
Once you put it on, it immediately feels like it’s a mask sitting on top of your face, meaning that it doesn’t absorb properly. It can feel a bit heavy. Well it is heavier but then it’s a foundation, not BB or CC cream. The finish is semi-matte since it dries quickly and it is a drying even with a good moisturizer (my forehead feels dry with this). However, the finish is natural, it gives the skin nice natural glow, nothing dewy, just healthy.
The coverage is high. I don’t think it’s a good idea to build it up since it can feel cakey. For one layer, you have to use quite a lot of product. I used like 2 – 3 pumps. It evens out the skintone nicely and covers my acne scars. I haven’t had a proper pimple at the time I was trying it out but if it’s bright red, you might want to dab some extra product on.
It lasts for about six hours before it slightly starts showing off. After the six hours, it slightly settles into fine lines on forehead (since it’s so drying). However it’s nothing drastic, it holds on pretty well for a good amount of time but it’s definitely not 24 hours how it claims. It also transfers and can be rubbed off, for example when you’re blowing your nose or you wear sunglasses. It rubbed off my chin and around my nose, these are the places where I get really oily. So if you have oily T-zone, check it throughout the day and powder it. I did not and at the end of the day, I could clearly see it separating and creasing around my nose. If you are dry or combination skin type, it might show some dry patches. Also because of the heavier feeling, it started empathizing my peach fuzz (I shaved it off a few days after that and didn’t have this problem, yay).
I kind of enjoyed wearing it and will definitely keep using it. I know I criticized it a lot but also keep in mind that when I write down my notes, I look at myself with a super magnifying mirror to see any flaws.
It definitely lasts longer than any of my makeup products, that’s for sure and that’s why I recommend it for summer. Since during the summer, we tend to sweat a lot, this will still hold for a good amount of time. Unless you’re looking at yourself with 10× magnifying mirror, you’re good to go the whole day. However, for dry skin types, I still recommend using a good moisturizer. For oily types, just powder your T-zone and you should be good to go.
