[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.
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!!
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.
I had been wearing Equalizer foundation in Ivory 1C1 for years. The formula wasn't perfect, but I am hard to match and Ivory was the closest I had found. Once I realized it was discontinued, I went to the Chat Line and was instructed that Double Wear Cool Bone is close in color to Equalizer Ivory. As it turned out Double Wear Cool Bone is perfect! The formula is much better than the Equalizer for my skin but, also, Cool Bone is a fantastic color match! I am very pale with cool undertones. Cool Bone has the perfect nuances for my skin and actually stays on all day long. I am beyond happy.
I love this foundation! Even with oily skin, this is a terrific product. Wish their was SPF in it, but I use Daywear Lotion with SPF 15 in it to protect my skin. It matches my skintone perfectly, is long lasting and looks great. I use 3 in one to remove at night.
Received a free sample of this product and before I finished my sample I bought a bottle! It works wonders for my complexion and really lasts ALL day. Love this foundation!! My color is Wheat...matches perfectly.
I've been looking for a foundation that provides a medium coverage. So I went to Estee Lauder's counter and asked them to find my shade. The lady was super nice. After she puts this double wear foundation on my face, it felt really right. It's the right shade, right coverage for me.
I have suffered from cystic acne in the past, and this is the only foundation that covered very red, inflammed skin and did not make it worse. I have since been on accutane to heal the cystic acne, but continue to have dark spots left by the acne. This foundation covers dark spots about 50-60%, the DW concealer covers it another 25%...so a dark spot still remains through this foundation, but it's byfar the best I have used to cover the spots. Scars are less noticable on my face, and this foundation feels light and lets my skin breathe. This truly has been a great foundation for me.
