Great Product--Double Wear in Shell
This review is for Double Wear in Shell (1C0). I have been using Double Wear in Shell for many years. It stays in place throughout the day including hot and humid days. This foundation matches my skin tone perfectly and helps camouflage flaws such as scars and acne. Many years ago, I had severe cystic acne, and this foundation was the only one on the market that would help not only camouflage the acne and scars, but also lessen the appearance of redness. I have tried Cool Bone and the other light Double Matte shades, and unfortunately, they do not match my skin tone and do not blend well because they are too yellow or pink. Over the past few months, I have occasionally seen Shell available on this website and hope that Shell has not been discontinued. Please keep Double Matte in Shell available, as it is a great product in a great shade for fair people like myself.
I have been using Estee Lauder Double Wear since I was in high school. My mom has always used their products so that is what she bought me as well. I have never had any skin problems and I give these quality products all the credit! I tried to use drug store products back in college, but I found myself back at the Estee Lauder counter immediately when my skin had a bad reaction to them. I love Double Wear because I can put it on at 6am and when I come home at 5pm, or sometimes even later, my makeup looks just as great as it did when I left that morning! Even with its all day coverage, it is so light you can't feel it on your face! I have worn this foundation almost everyday for over ten years. It doesn't clog your pores and it comes off as easy as it goes on. I highly recommend the Double Wear makeup line! Especially for those who want to look as great in the afternoon as they do in the morning!
Best For: oily to combination and uneven pigmentation
I have a hard skin tone to match, I have always struggled with finding a good makeup for my oily-combination skin. After trying many brands and creams I was told to try this product. I went in to get a tone match and found the perfect one. This stuff stays on all day and I hardly have to touch up anymore. It is really good for my uneven skin tone as well. Definitely recommend for anyone looking for a good coverage foundation!
I really like the coverage and color match i have for this foundation, I'm in pure beige. I have been using it for a few months, and have not had any adult acne flare ups, so i am really happy about that. I also use an Estee Lauder powder over the foundation because i just feel it gives a better over all finished appearance.
Excellent coverage, staying power. nice range of tones to match skin. Recommend to cover flaws, discoloration, acne, etc. Would use moisturizer underneath, however, because Double Wear can be slightly drying.
[Order 2388458551] I tried many different shades and still could not find a shade for me. 2W2 and 3C1 are too light. 3C2 is close but too pink. 3N1 and 3W1 are way too dark. Moreover, the only attribute of this foundation is its impressive staying power. But it fails to cover my pore and blur wrinkles. It fails to make my skin looks better.
Best For: oily, dry, combination, Long-wear, the fairest of fair skin
I have such fair skin with some hyper pigmentation in my cheeks, so I have always struggled with finding a foundation that matches my white neck but still provides ample coverage for my uneven skin. I found this one in Shell a couple of years ago and fell in love! I get so many compliments on my "flawless porcelain skin", even from complete strangers! When I found out Estee Lauder discontinued Shell, I was so angry and have been on the lookout for a new foundation ever since. I happened to be on the website today and saw that Shell was back! Rejoicing! Please please always keep Shell! It is the perfect color for my skin! For those of you who have never tried this product, go for it! I've been pushed in the pool before, and this makeup stayed on my face! Looks natural, doesn't sit on top of skin, and does not settle around nose.
Best For: anything you need to cover, sensitive skin, full coverage
I have been waiting forever for Shell to come back and lo and behold it has. I am really thrilled and after comparison of the two versions of double wear I think the new formula is just fine and not all that different than the original and still a great product. I need so little its really a great value for me. Please keep Shell in stock for all the snow whites who love this product.
This foundation is a little pricy, but worth the price. It last longer than other brands and provides excellent coverage. I would recommend this product if you do not have time to refresh your makeup during the day.
I am very appreciative that Estee Lauder gave me a free 10 day sample of this product because I would have been very disappointed if I had paid for it. The product does what it is supposed to. It is definitely full coverage and stays on pretty well but my skin felt dry and tight while wearing this. Also, no matter how thinly I applied this foundation you could still tell I was wearing makeup. I do not have many lines or wrinkles but this foundation made each one I do have stand out and more pronounced. I like a full coverage foundation to cover the redness in my cheeks around my nose but this was not for me.
This is the best foundation I have ever tried. I used to break out when I used other products. In fact I have never found another foundation that I could wear. I get compliments from people all the time about how smooth my face looks. I love it!!
I have been using this foundation in Shell (1C1) forever because I have very fair skin. My coworker has nicknamed me "Snow White." Unfortunately it has been discontinued in my shade. I don't understand why you would discontinue a hard to find fair shade that has always rewarded you with a loyal customer. I have always told everyone who has complimented me on my beautiful skin what makeup I use. I am so unhappy that this wonderful formula is no longer formulated or marked to those of us with fairer skin. I work long shifts in a hospital and need the staying power. PLEASE consider bringing back the original Shell color. I can no longer wear your makeup and it breaks my heart.
Love Este Lauder Double Wear foundation. I am 64 years old and I have been using this foundation for at least four years now. It has great coverage and is not to thick or greasy. I use this along with the daywear moisturizer and am very happy with the results.
