Let me say this is the first bad review I have ever given an EL product. I am using Retina and was looking for a moisturizing foundation. This was very odd. It gave full-coverage (like stage makeup) but never set it stayed very greasy and just sat on the skin and was not very smooth. The worst part was that if you sweat at all this turns white and just melts off your face. It lasted maybe an hour! I have since found an amazing EL foundation but this was not a good experience for me!
Resilience Lift Extreme Foundation is a perfect light color for my very fair complexion--HOWEVER it is thick, pasty, goopy and will not come out of the bottle easily. Now I have to continue my search for the right light foundation.
This makeup is wonderful for coverage and a natural look. Being 60 years of age, I want to have a clean natural coverage on my face. This makeup is so perfect for all of the above. I have been an Estee Lauder girl for 30 years now and plan to stay with EL for another 30. Love it!~~~
This foundation is the best I have used. It doesn't appear to lift my skin, however it does offer beautiful, luminous coverage and the shade selection is fantastic! I have tried many other foundations but I keep coming back to Resilience Lift Extreme.
It's taken me long enough, but finally I have found the perfect foundation for my skin. The breakdown by tone (cool, warm, neutral) helped me find an exact match for my skin tone, which we all know can be more difficult than imagined.
The finish is just right as well. It's satiny -- not too matte and not too dewy. It lasts for hours and doesn't seem to oxidize much at all.
I love that it is fragrance-free. I have been using this foundation for several months without any irritation or breakouts. In fact, I think my skin is looking better than ever.
The pump dispenser keep the product fresh, and it actually allows me to dispense just the amount I need, a feature often sorely lacking.
I apply either with my fingers or, if I want a more air-brushed look, with my Real Techniques Expert Face brush.
My only request is that this product NEVER be discontinued!
This being the first time I purchased this product, I have to say, I wish I had discovered it before. It is the best foundation I have ever used. It feels like liquid silk when applied. I recommend highly for ALL skin types. A big plus: a little bit goes a long way!
Bring back your Double Matte foundation!!! I used it for many, many years and always got compliments about how young and radiant my skin on my face was. Since you discontinued that I tried Resilience Lift and people have commented that my makeup looks streaky. It does not smooth on properly, so it looks like I am wearing makeup. It is horrible compared to the Double Matte foundation! I no longer get any compliments on how young my face looks nor how beautiful my skin is! Bring back Double Matte! Bring back Double Matte! Bring back Double Matte!
I've worn this makeup for about 5 years. I got a sample from a dept. store and loved it. It's hard to find makeup for older people - I will be 69 next month and receive compliments all the time about how beautiful my skin is (part is genetic but also Estee Lauder products).
I have been searching for the right foundation for my aging complexion, and this one seems to be pretty close to the mark. I've only had it for 3 days, but I'm mostly happy with it so far.
First of all, for ordering online, I'm delighted that the shade is spot on for my face - usually trial and error process for me. "Linen" looks so natural on me, and that alone is a relief!
I'm 62 and wanted a foundation with radiance or luminescence or something not dry and cakey looking. This is fairly good. I have a 7x makeup mirror and at that magnification, this does not look perfectly smooth going on. But I switched from my heavier moisturizer to the serum I used before, and that seems to work better. Looks better over lines and pores.
Anyway, it stays well all day. I actually like the look of it better after it's been on an hour or two. And it FEELS really nice on my face. Not greasy at all. Just soft and kind of...plumped? Feels healthy. Looks good.
The makeup was very drying to my already 65 year old semi dry face. it did not look good when applied--very visible in the creases of my skin. There are maybe strings or something in it which creates the 'lift' and they are visible on my face. I have liked other estee lauder make up but definitely NOT this one for someone my age.
This was the first time in using Estee Lauder foundation makeup. I was very doubtful that the recommended shade would be right. But it was. Even though it was much more expensive than what I had been using I could see that it was worth it. My skin was much smoother and covered up age spots and wrinkles better than anything I had tried. I highly recommend Resilience lift Extreme.
once I found the right color, this is beautiful. spreads evenly and the finish is to die for. Only trouble is finding the right color over internet, it is best to go to store get a sample and then order it . I know you will love the results.
This is a foundation that makes my skin look natural and also helps to moisturize and lift where needed. I love this make up it only takes a little bit to achieve and amazing look. I find it also easy to use.
I have used the sheer foundation in the summer when I prefer a lighter foundation. But for the winter months I love the resilience lift foundation, I like the way it glides on and it doesn't make your face feel heavily made up. I like how my skin feels using it. I have even used BB cream under it for more sunscreen protection and it isn't heavy.
