Shell double wear best ever!!!
Date:October 26, 2013
Best For fair skin
please please sell Shell Level 1-Cool in the stores. It is the best color ever. So glad we can order it on line but must must sell in stores also. To let your loyal customers know they can buy that color again. Shell is very popular for very fair skin. Love the little bit of pink color in it. The Bone color is too yellow for most people. Please keeping making SHELL Level 1-Cool color.Thank you
I don't understand the negative comments on this amazing product but I never used the old formula. That being said, I cannot fathom how it could be any better than what I purchased (Pebble). It has fantastic coverage, is light feeling, doesn't settle in my fine lines and lasts all day into the night. I wore it in Orlando in 90+ degree heat and humidity (from 10:00am to 11:00pm) and even with me sweating like a farm animal, it DID NOT BUDGE! I thought for sure when I got back to my hotel that my reflection would be a splotchy, shiny mess and it wasn't! It was like I had just applied it! I use it with a luminous primer and my face glows! It is a tad drying but moisterizer fixes that. I love it and it's definitely my HG of foundation. Estee, please don't change a thing!
This used to be a great foundation until they changed the formula. Too thin and color is off. Everyone reading this who agrees with me, be sure to write a review and give it the STAR it deserves. It seems that that the decision makers at Estee Lauder are not listening to their clients. Maybe once they see their sales drop and see all of the negative reviews accompanied by the 1 star and actually read our reviews maybe, just maybe they will listen to us and realize they had a great product that made a lot of women feel beautiful, happy, and who didn't mind spending almost $40 on a bottle of foundation because it actually WORKED!!! BTW....getting rid of the Double Matte line was a kick to my gut and sneaky with no forewarning to your clients. smh
I would've given this product 5 stars about 6 months ago. Now it's absolutely terrible. I have an oily t-zone, unevenness and acne scarring. This foundation used to cover it up beautifully. It was the only foundation that stayed on my oily nose all day long. Now, it doesn't have good coverage and slides off of my skin after a few hours. I am actually embarrassed that I wore this foundation to work today. It looks so bad right now. I am hoping that I can return this since I paid almost $40 for it. I need to find a new foundation. Goodbye, Estee Lauder.
So happy to see my shade (Shell) is available online! The change EL made to the shades did not work for me. Cool Bone is no replacement for Shell. I had been using Shell for over 10 years when it disappeared from the EL Counter. So thrilled to find it online. Searching for a new foundation as good as DW in my fair shade was daunting.
I was so excited about getting this product, but now i'm not so sure if i still want to waste my money on some overpriced foundation, which doesn't seem to be as good as it used to. Is it really that bad?
I was first introduced to Doublewear foundation when recommended to me by a makeup artist. I tried it and have never gone back to anything else. It may be bit dearer than other products, but SO worth it because it stays on ALL day and doesn't fade away. It covers all blemishes beautifully.
My sister even tried it she was so surprised because she went to sleep with it on and said she still looked amazing in the morning (she was used to other foundations just rubbing off or fading away)|
The color choices are great because there are so many shades to choose from. I have always had trouble finding the right shade because I am a white/indian mix. I found Dawn suited me perfectly.
I am surprised by the negative reviews here. I never use the miraculous old version, yet find the new one quite satisfying. I have oily-combination skin, this foundation is buildable, and provides reasonable coverage without being cakey. Yes, it is a bit dry when applied to the chin area but mixing it with a few drops of ANR will solve the issue. Do use a foundation brush though. Overall, nice foundation. As to the color issue--I don't think EL drastically changed their color swatch. I owned an old version of EL double-wear powder foundation back in 2009 in Ecru, and i am still stick with this same color when buying this liquid foundation.
I used this foundation for years. It was a perfect match and I got compliments on my complexion all the time. Why did you change the formula!! Please, Please!! Change it back. The color is awful . It has a yellow / orange tint to it.
I have always had a difficult time finding foundation to look natural on me... until I found Estee Lauder's double wear in "Suede". Now EL has discontinued that color and none of the other colors work for me. It's very frustrating to find a great product and then not be able to get it again. PLEASE bring it back!
Thank you Estee Lauder for listening to your customers and bringing back Shell (1C0). I had tried 1N1 and Cool Bone as replacements and those colors were awful on my extremely pale skin. Now I have the porcelain doll look again. Ladies, don't let the EL reps at the counters tell you that Cool Bone is the same as Shell. I have both colors and the difference, especially once applied, is significant. Happy EL client here!
I have been using EL Double Wear for years, I was so upset when I had found out that they had changed the colors and the formula. I must say I love the new formula it blends beautifully and has amazing coverage.I love that with Double Wear I don't need powder or little to no concealer. It has just as good staying power as the old formula! I used to wear the old version of Fresco, I went and got matched at my local EL counter the first person that matched me, well it was wrong, very orange. After getting matched again I have the perfect shade ,now I am wearing Desert Beige 2N1. I would have to say this shade is an even better match than the old formula Fresco. For all those ladies giving bad reviews the key is to be matched properly with your shade, it makes all the difference. I love that now I can use this foundation for photo's without whiteout. For everyday wear I just use a good SPF for face under my foundation. This review is coming from a makeup artist. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this foundation. Thank you EL!!!!!
Why Fix What Wasn’t Broken…So Disappointed!!Date :October 5 , 2013 Dear Estee Lauder, I have been a long and faithful user of Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup. Finally, after years of searching for my perfect foundation makeup…I found warm ginger double matte oil control makeup, and fell in love. I continuously raved to my friends about DW Stay-In-Place Makeup, and even go with them to the counter to get a matching color. I usually purchase two bottles at a time, but ran out, and needed to replenish. Consequently, off to the EL counter I went, and to MY SURPRISE you changed the formula/color!! warm ginger double matte oil control makeup is no longer a match for me…none of the colors is. I had to go on a hunt to find the old formula/color…I made calls, and drove distance to different
I wore Double Matte forever and like all good things... it came to an end. Why? I can't imagine why. I tried the Double Wear and absolutely hate it! It doesn't go on the same, coverage isn't the same and the feel of it on my face is not the same. I am going to have to find a different line now. Thanks Estee Lauder for nothing.
