The Only Foundation I Wear!
Date:December 11, 2012
Best For good coverage; stays matte
This is my favorite foundation. I am very fair, with oily skin, large pores, and suffer from rosacea. This is awesome for oily skin! It covers my redness, and stays matte all day long. I have worn this for many years, and always get compliments on my "perfect" skin. (If they only knew what was lurking underneath my Double Matte! lol) Please don't ever stop making this wonderful product. I am a huge fan!!!
I have worn this foundation for 5 years and I would always get compliments. I am so sad it's no longer in any of the stores around me. I switched to Double Wear and I am not happy with it at all!! I get way too shiny throughout the day, a problem I never had with Double Matte. I also noticed that it doesn't cover as well either!!! Please dont discontinue this foundation!!
Covers Scars & Blemishes - Controls Shine for Hour
Date:January 18, 2013
Best For scars, Shine, blemishes
I used to never wear foundation or only powder on those rare occasions. Life happens, I stressed, and got several acne scars. I missed my skin so I began trying different makeups to hide the blemishes. This makeup is awesome. It looks natural, covers the scars, evens the tone, and helps control shine for hours. I am African American and dark skin and the ginger color matched perfectly for my tone. A little goes a very long way. I wet my foundation brush with water then use a little dab of the makeup and swirl in circles all over my face. Still using this makeup - I use the concealer brush to build the color and hide really dark blemishes. I set the makeup with rice powder using a kabuki brush, again swirling in circles. The color looks more natural after it dries (it looks a little pale when first applied)
I have been wearing this foundation for years and years. I have tried numerous foundations and this is the best for coverage while still looking very natural. I get compliments literally all the time from women that are amazed at how beautiful my skin on my face looks. They keep commenting on how smooth my skin is. I am 53 years old so this is awesome to get these type of compliments!
I have been using this makeup for YEARS, and my skin always looked flawless. Unfortunately, I couldn't find it in stores anymore and had to switch to another foundation, and now I hear this might be discontinued. PLEASE keep this in your inventory, Estee Lauder! There's nothing like it that gives this type of full, yet natural, coverage.
for the fact that they have such limited colors. I'm very fair and the lightest color is still at least one shade too dark. It covers well, controls oil and doesn't settle into my laugh lines as much as other foundations. It is so frustrating when your favorite product doesn't have the right color! PLEASE make some lighter shades!!!
I tried the other double wear and hated it because my skin is sooooo oily...I was shiny after a few hours. However, the EL consultant help me pick out this double matte formula and it is AMAZING. I have tried so many other foundations but this truly does what it says. I stay matte for so long I barely need any powder!
Please do not discontinue this product. This foundation truly lives up to its name. I went to a local retailer today to purchase more and was told it had been discontinued. I had to purchase foundation from Lancôme, to get an oil control, matte finish foundation as I needed foundation now. If the product is not discontinued, please let the stores know so you will not lose customers who need oil control products. Thanks.
I just came to your site to check for a darker summer shade, only to see that double matte is discontinued!!!! I am more than disappointed. This foundation is the ONLY one I ever wear and it has been at least 15 years...maybe more. I am sick. I know you probably have people upset over discontinued products all the time...but truly I have never found anything to come close to this product. Does anyone here have any recommendations????
Please do not discontinue Double Matte. I have worn it for more years than I can count. I have tried Double Wear and do not like it. Double Matte is the only makeup I can wear. If it doesn't come back I will have to go to another line.
I have a very greasy face but ever since I started using this foundation, people stop and ask me how I get my 'glowy' skin, elderly women want to touch my face etc. One or the other happens at least once a day, seriously. Please Estee Lauder, bring it back. Nothing else on your current inventory helps.
I got a free sample of the warm tawny in a store demo, used it a week and was hooked. I have been using this for years and now that I need a new bottle IT HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED!!!! Why discontinue something with such great reviews?
I love this Double Matt makeup. I have been using it for about 3 years now and there is not a day that goes by that someone doesn't tell me what beautiful skin I have. It is the best makeup I used. By the way, did I say I was 62?
I have worn this makeup for over twenty years and have loved it. However, the formulation has been changed. It no longer contains an SPF and the coverage does not last as long. Please Estee change it back!
Love this foundation, BUT....even the Cool Ivory is too dark for my complexion. Please make a lighter shade with a "cool base tone". Until then I will have to wear a foundation that doesn't work near as well for my skin.
I love this makeup and have been using it for yrs. It is getting harder and harder to get preferred color when I need it. I was extremely shocked to find out that the SPF 15 is no longer in the makeup. Would of really liked to know this prior to getting sunburned :( I maybe on the hunt for a new foundation.
I have been wearing this foundation for over 20 years and LOVE IT! Great, long lasting coverage! I have heard rumors its being discontinued and sure hope they aren't true! If you are on the fence about trying this product, jump over! You won't be disappointed!
