my holy grail foundation!!!
Best For: Oily Skin, long wearing, flawless finish :-)
I have been a faithful customer of Estée Lauder for 3 years now. Yes they have taken the SPF out, but the foundation is still the same. This is the best foundation ever for me. I have tried many high end brands, but this one is the BEST! As seasons change so does my skin color. The Estée Lauder girls always gave me several samples first until I find my color. Now I know what my summer and winter colors are. This foundation definitely stands up to its name. I never had any outbreak from this foundation. Thank you Estée Lauder for making this beautiful long wearing product.
I have been a 20+ year user of Double Wear foundation. This used to be the perfect foundation until it was reformulated. The Soft Tan color is no longer a match for me…none of the colors are a match for me now. The new formula does not provide the same coverage. The new make-up does not have the same consistency and has caused break-outs on my skin. The new formula tends to come off and does not have the staying power like the old formula. Not to mention that the SPF has been removed from the reformulated makeup altogether. Please bring back the old formula/colors or you will continue to lose longtime loyal Estee Lauder customers. Like the many other loyal users of Double Wear I am extremely disappointed and hope that Estee Lauder brings back the holy grail of foundation that we all loved!
I have been using the old DW foundation for many years and loved it and recommended it to all my friends as it was the first makeup for my oily, very pale skin that didn't change color throughout the day and stayed on and still looked fresh after 8 or more hours. I used Fresco 2N2. I was out of make up during the formula change and was colr tested and they gave me the new formula. I didn't know the SPF was gone. The color makes me look very pale and I had to have a sun damge spot frozen off my face too after using this for a year. Pleas bring back the old formula.
This product was a must-have to my everyday beauty routine. This foundation USED to make my skin appear so flawless, it looked photo shopped. Since the new change in the formula, you're better off going with no makeup at all to say the least.
I am surprised about the quantity of negative reviews, although can understand that changing the colors would mean finding a new match in some cases. Years ago I used Ecru as the closest "match" to my skin. Problem was that about half way through the day my redness would peak through and the color would just look pasty and muddy on my skin. I went to the counter to be re-matched and we picked Sand to counteract my redness. I loved Sand, and was lucky that Sand is still Sand in the new formula. I sense that there might be a slight difference in color, but if so, the new color is actually better. I really like this long-lasting makeup. I don't have any issues with application but I apply an oil-free SPF moisturizer prior to applying the makeup.
Although I wear EL Resilience Lift on the rest of my face, I have found that Double Wear foundation is perfect for my nose to prevent shine and around the area of my lips to prevent lipstick feathering issues. It is a perfect match to my skin color, so I also wear it along my jaw line to prevent that embarrassing makeup line.
I love this foundation and I have tried them all. I will wait until the summer to switch foundations so that I know it can handle TX heat. I have acne scarring, roseacea, and oily skin. I get a ton of complements. But you do need to understand how stay make up from any brand is different. You can't use a make up brush, it will destroy them unless you wash them every day. So I use a sponge. And throw it away after 2 days. I moisturize, prime and apply, I can fall asleep and look the same in the morning.
I have worn this make up for several years, and love it. It genuinely stays on all day. however, having moved to USA from UK, I am very disappointed that I cannot get the shade, Outdoor Beige in this line. Please start doing this shade, as I can't even get one close to it over here. Although you do the shade in a different range.
I too was very upset about the changes to Double Wear. I was a loyal customer of Double Wear in Shell, was 1C1. After many samples and visits at the EL counter, I found 1N1 Ivory Nude to be a great color, comparable to the Shell. So if you are debating your replacement color, give this one a try.
Ladies, if you find correct tone and you know how to put make up- it's the best by quality and by price!!! I'm just thinking if I'm not in USA I'm going to be at home, HOW can I buy real one, because everywhere you can find fake product. I buy in duty-free, it's real, natural tone of your skin and price is the best!!!! If you don't know how to put make up- it's your problem, sign up for the course, but you cannot say anything wrong about this product, the best!
I have been a loyal customer to Estee Lauder for many years. I have worn Double Wear since 2001 and have loved it ever since. Worn Fresco and have always loved my skin. THEN I go to the estee lauder counter and my beloved foundation is gone. Now ever since I have been looking for something to replace it but nothing compares. Please! Please! Please bring back the old Double wear. I have been so bummed ever sense you changed it.
