Date:August 27, 2014
I panicked when the foundation that I had used forever -- double matte -- was discontinued. I contacted estee lauder by email and the rep suggested using double wear and told me the color that most closely matched what I had been using. It has turned out to be just great.
Best For: everyday, acne prone skin, natural look with great coverage, won't settle into fine lines, dry skin won't cling to dry patches
Truly matches my fair skin tone and lasts all day until I take it off. I wear glasses and normally all my other foundations it would smear but with this nothing! It stays put and blends I to your skin so well it looks like you have no makeup on. It helps keep my oil at bay that I get on my tzone,nose and chin. Best coverage I have had in a foundation. Go in get color matched and try it out! It's amazing. Especially for summer time.
Long lasting, great coverage, now with more colors
I love this foundation and have used it for years. I once went 30 hours and it was still flawless. I highly recommend it. If you are Asian, it can be difficult to find your coverage. I use to buy two colors and mix them myself, but that gets expensive. Now I get a shade lower and use a darker powder on top. But I love the long lasting coverage, give it a try, you will fall in love too.
I cannot live without this product! I began using Estee Lauder's Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation in March and I am about to be on my third bottle! The formulation of this product is incredible! When they say "Stay in Place" they mean stay in place! I wear this foundation everyday WITHOUT A PRIMER and it lasts from morning to night. I usually do not have to touch up my face after setting it with Estee Lauder Stay in Place powder. I have a lot of acne scars, hyper pigmentation, and dark circles and this foundation covers everything up flawlessly! I would never trade this product for any other foundation EVER! It is medium to full coverage and it is definitely build-able so you can adjust to the amount of coverage you want. They have a great color selection for all skin tones and it is not an over drying or irriatble product. Love this product!
I went to the store and the estee lauder makeup artist, was fantastic. I told her how I have Roscasha And Have A Hard Time finding a foundation that covered the redness and didn't look heavy. She did a mini makeover for me and I ended up purchasing the double wear foundation and concealer. I love both products, my skin has never looked so flawless and beautiful :) thank you for giving me some extra confidence and for making me look extra fabulous
This is by far the best foundation. I live in Florida so it is essential in the heat and humidity. I highly recommend trying this. When it is applied on my face it just sinks in like it is part of it. I do use the EL foundation brush which makes it easy to apply. EL products by far are superior. I use everything and do not bother looking at anything else. Some people may think this is pricy but in the long run it isn't because It works (lasts) so you do not have to keep applying. And all you need is a little bit so you do not go thru it quickly. I did purchase a reusable pump to put on it.
Best For: great for oily skin great for light coverage
I have oily skin all over my face but especially on my t-zone. I have tried 8-10 different foundations and no luck. Yesterday I went to the Estee Lauder counter and asked for a sample of the Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup and so far it's been wonderful. Its light and sheer and I have not experience any oil or shine on my face in 6 hrs and that is great for me. Other foundations oil and shine come through at 3-4 hours. Now I will wait until it hits 10 hrs and will right another review. Great Product, I love Estee Lauder Makeup and I will buy the whole line of makeup from primer, foundation, and concealer and eyeshadow base. Thank you,
At first im hesistant to buy this product because i have a very sensitive skin and worst i have skin asthma. Ive tried so many foundations from high end foundations to drugstore foundations just to find the right one for me. Bought mine, double wear foundation last week and it feels so good on my skin, didnt have break outs and rashes. And it stays on my skin all day. Thanks Estee Lauder. Finally! Find my perfect foundation.
I was hesitant about buying this foundation. I was thinking that I would likely have to send it back. It took me over a month after I received it to even bother to wear it. I didn't want to be disappointed. Well, I wasn't....First of all the shade matched my "Beyonce" skin tone (warm, honey colored, and golden..) perfectly and it blended out to a wonderful, soft matte finish. Bye pores. I maintained that gorgeous look all day - no reapplication and no oxidation. Thank you, Estee Lauder for saving me from looking like a cakey, patchy, large pored, orange mess.
I am just amazed this makeup rates only 3 stars. It's the most fabulous makeup, and has terrific staying power. I've been using it for 2 years. Looks good even after blotting, which I do have to blot a couple times during the day because of oily skin and living in a warm, humid climate. The color match is perfect; in fact, even though I get a deep tan part of the year I can wear the same color year-round and it looks natural. People accuse me of having a good complexion, which I do not--just good makeup! Maybe this makeup isn't as good for someone with dry skin? I also use the doublewear light on occasions where I don't need the all-day staying power. I don't like it nearly as much as I like the regular Doublewear.
Prefer new version - doesn't oxidize/react on face
It's interesting. The old formulation (that many reviewers love and want back) was something that never worked out for me. I tried the foundation (old formula) on two separate occasions over a year apart, and both times, the old formula oxidized on my skin (within a hour of applying) causing it to turn a less than flattering orange-tint. I also noticed that I "felt" the foundation on my face, as if it were a mask. No matter how much I wanted to make it work, I just couldn't bear the orange-tint and the feel, and returned it both times.
But...the new formulation - WOW!! What a difference!!! The new formulation doesn't oxidize on my skin or feel mask-like at all. The coverage is fantastic - better than any other foundation I've used. It's pigmented, and covers the melasma on my cheeks without being too heavy/opaque. I can now understand why those who loved the old formulation may not like the new version. It's a completely different foundation that happened to have worked out for me. Perhaps EL can offer both formulations and make everyone happy?
I used to use this all the time but I believe the formula has been changed. I used it because it didn't break me out and had great coverage. Now it breaks me out. First the color I used (dust) is no longer available, then I selected another color which was okay and it started breaking me out. If you do not have to worry about breakouts - it's great - has wonderful, lasting coverage. I will no longer use it and I see the price has gone up so I'm done.
Because of the price I didn't buy this before hoping I would find a good one at a cheaper price, I've been trying it for a few weeks now and I am in love, lasts a long long time, I have a Very oily face and I don't have to touch up as much as before, once or twice maybe throughout the day. I would definitely recommend this foundation.
I love, love, love this foundation since I first purchase it years ago. I went out and tried other brands and always came straight back to this one, because no other one compares to the all day wear you get from it. It doesn't come off or smear off and it really stays in place all day. Once you try you won't go back to any other.
