I'm 42 and have both dry skin/wrinkles and oily skin/pimples, and have a hard time finding foundations that work with both those issues. This makeup is the ticket; it's medium coverage, blends super-smoothly, and has a natural finish that's neither too matte nor too shiny. It doesn't make me break out, nor does it leave me too greasy or too dry.
I have super pale/porcelain skin and was fearful the Linen would be too dark...while it did look a little dark in the pan, it blends so well that it becomes the perfect color for my overly white skin. It's long-wearing (>8 hrs) on it's own, so you don't have to set it with powder if you don't want too. There's no fragrance in it I can detect. If you have dark circles under your eyes you'll still need a concealer to cover those. I give this foundation an A+.
Gives me a little more coverage where I need to conceal a freckle or two; also does well giving that extra-lift around the wrinkled mouth and lips. Blends right in. I use this in addition to my liquid foundation Perfectionist but use this cream by itself when it's extremely hot & sticky.
I've been using this compact for over a week now and love it!!!!! So glad I found it! I have dry skin now so my go-to mineral compact foundations no longer worked but I didn't want to deal with the extra steps of liquid. This is perfect!!!!! Extremely quick and easy to apply, nice included sponge, and portable. Finish is radiant and natural while still providing great coverage. A little goes a long way! My skin looks and feels soft, smooth, and hydrated all day. Great lasting power too!
Best For traveling, fast application, evening out skin tone
I bought this last fall because I was going to be traveling and I wanted something compact to take along. This foundation is pretty good. The coverage is not as good as a liquid foundation, however, I would say it is medium coverage. It is very simple and quick to use. This make up does have a good amount of moisture in it, so I can use it in the fall/winter/early spring weather. I did need to use powder to touch up during the day.
I like this for a little extra coverage. I have light skin and i ordered the linen it is a tad dark but i just blend well and its fine. I do not like to use this under my eye are because of creasing. It works on the rest of my face and does not cause excess oil.
I've been using Estee Lauder products for over 40 years. I just discovered this Resilience Lift Extreme. I'm 72 yrs. old and boy do I have wrinkles. I've been using this product instead of the liquid foundation and I love it. It gives my face a nice healthy glow, is easy to apply and my wrinkles are not so apparent now.
I am 80 years old and recently bought this foundation in a compact. I have never had beautiful skin but on a visit to my physician the nurse told me that I have beautiful skin. So it works and I am delighted with this makeup and will continue to use it. I have used EL liquid foundations for about 15 years but for aging skin this is miraculous!
I have used this product for several years. I was introduced to it by a make up artist at the Estée Lauder counter in a local department store. I have used Estée Lauder products for over 30 years and I had always used liquid foundations. This is so much easier to apply. It gives good, but not heavy, coverage and lasts all day.
Best For good coverage with a smooth lovely finish.
I just discovered it and would probably use it til the end of my life if I thought it would be sold that long! It goes on like silk, looks very natural and I have gotten compliments. Who could ask for anything more??
This is an exceptional foundation, but I find that a good dose of light reflecting pigments makes my skin look 35. Please, EL, offer this with light reflectors. Also, a paler color would be nice as well. Even the fairest shade is too dark for my warm skintone. With a little tweaking, this could be the best foundation ever.
Please do NOT discontinue this product!! This is that only foundation that you can use as one step, stays on all day, the colors are amazing and there is nothing else like it. This makeup is so natural and goes on great. I've been wearing this for nearly 6-7 years. I will never use Estee Lauder again if this product is discontinued. It is very poor service to make such an amazing product available for so long, just to take it away. There is nothing else like it on the market. I've tried numerous foundations and it's just not that same. It's as if you're leaving your customers in the dust. Very disappointing.
Best For my fair porcelain type skin, cleaner than liquids and much less messy
Resilience compact make up has it all. Creamy full coverage in convenient compact to carry with you Lasts all day for a flawless look.Not thick,natural looking.A nice new experience that will be a regular for me.
