I was looking for a compact foundation which is not drying and my search ended when I found this amazing product. Goes on so smooth without ofcourse being cake or flaky. Needless to say its worth every penny. I first apply day wear BB cream and then my Resilience Lift Extreme. I don't even feel the need to top it with powder. It just blends to my skin and gives instant glow.Love it!
The product so far, has been satisfactory it goes on smooth, stays on for a long time. Easier to carry the compact around than a bottle.
I've used Estee Lauder products since 1977, and very sorry that there is not a Estee Lauder counter within 70 miles from our home.. Not easy trying to order over phone or on computer..Need that personal touch and trials. Hope there will be an representative one day again in our city.
I wanted to switch from the makeup I've been buying from a big French company because (1) they do animal testing & EL doesn't and (2) I'm a huge EL fan - skincare, eye makeup, fragrance. The color was perfect, but I was disappointed in the coverage - I had to pile it on to get the same coverage I got with my old compact makeup, but this gave my skin a caked, made-up look - and it was quite shiny. Normally I steer clear of things labeled "radiant" or "illuminating," knowing they will look greasy or shiny, but that wasn't even in the description. I'm disappointed, as I really wanted to switch to EL for my foundation. I'll be returning it.
Don't you hate it when you find a great product and a perfect color, and then the company changes it or discontinues it? Thank goodness Estee Lauder hasn't done that with Resilience Lift Extreme. I've been ordering this product for years, and it never fails to please. Don't change a change, Estee!
Great compact to carry with you. This makeup goes on smoothly.without streaking and gives a natural look. I like that it has SPF. I actually called in for advice and was delighted with the the person I spoke with. She advised me to get the color Dawn, and I love it. I apply it with the sponge, but I plan on trying it with a brush - just to see, I lke that I can get a very light coverage, but can also apply it heavier to get more complete heavier coverage.
This is the product I've been looking for! It goes on easily, it is portable, but the best thing is it looks natural. Not to mention it has SPF, which is great too. This is going to be a staple from now on.
I was interested in trying this. I switched from a powder compact foundation to this. I thought it would be a baby step. I needed a little more coverage and my skin is dry. The girl at my Estee counter put this on me and she also recommended using the powder foundation brush to apply. I love this. I am not sure I would love it as much if I was applying with the sponge. The brush allows you to blend so well and it looks flawless. There is a subtle glow to the finish that is nice. I haven't had any break outs and it doesn't feel oily at all even after all day.
After reading reviews, decided I'd try something new, since (a) I'm getting older and (sigh) needing more coverage for imperfections, and (b) my liquid Resilience Lift foundation was running out anyway. I wasn't sure about a compact foundation, since I'd never used one and my skin tends to break out more now (hormonal changes, I guess), plus the idea of using the same sponge on my face day after day (but I wash it every few days, & will buy a new one maybe every 2-3 weeks if I need to). I immediately LOVED it! I actually find it easier to put on foundation with the sponge, and feel like I get more consistent coverage. With the liquid, I wasn't putting it all over my face, because I just didn't want to give in to that finally (only having needed less coverage a few years ago), but this makes it easy, and it's seamless (no uneven patches) and my skin looks AWESOME - RADIANT and smooth! I actually don't mind the all-over foundation, because it's so light and beautiful-looking!! IF YOU'RE SITTING ON THE FENCE ON THIS ONE, DON'T - JUST GET IT! YOU WON'T BE SORRY!
I was using another foundation and it was discontinued so, I tried the Resilience Lift Extreme compact makeup. Before I purchased it the sales person at the Estee Lauder counter tried it on me first and I fell in love with it as soon as she applied it on my face. It was very creamy and had great coverage. It gives the skin a more lifted, firmer, younger look. It delivers moisture and radiance to skin. It is lightweight and very comfortable to wear. The compact is so portable you can take it with you wherever you go for touchups. If you are looking for a cream foundation I would definitely recommend giving this one a try. I purchased it and I am very happy the way it makes my skin look. I also like that it has SPF 15. Thank you Estee Lauder for a great product!!!
Now that I am 38 the makeup I previously used doesn't work. Suffice to say I like a compact that I can use all over and take up to my eye area. I love the creamy perfection of freshly applied foundation. After all day and a touch up of powder it ends up looking like a dry powdery...not fresh and pretty. I want creamy skin. I tried another brand of cream foundation and it was too greasy...not a nice finish. It was like it didnt "set". It doesn't seem like Estee Lauder Reps in the stores give this awesome makeup the mention it deserves. I wanted something to use as an all in one, take it with me and still at the end of the day look great and NOT powdery. This is IT!!!!! Finally I have found what I am looking for. I do love the Double Wear Foundation but I don't want to apply powder over it or carry foundation in my purse to touch up. This Creme Compact is awesome. I apply this under my eyes and the rest of my face and I am so pleased. I can reapply and it doesn't get too thick. The finish is lovely.
I have been using this makeup for over a decade. It is perfect to wear during the colder months, but becomes a little shiny in the warmer months. Resilience Lift Extreme makeup offers Medium Coverage, keeps skin soft, and minimizes fine lines.
