I have been looking for a new foundation that stays on but does not look or feel heavy and I finally found it with the Estée Double Wear. My skin feels smoother & I have received compliments from several of my friends about how good my make-up looks! I am extremely happy with not only the feel & the look but it is very easy to apply with my new Estée brush. I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a new foundation. They won't be disappointed.
Best For: combination to oily skin, longwear, sensitive/acne prone skin
This foundation is wonderful! I work 12 hour days and this foundation truly stays put all day, does not rub off on my coat or clothes, and covers beautifully. I wear 2W1 and it matches my skin perfectly. Does not oxidize, and stays matte. I have combination skin, so I do have to make sure to moisturize the drier parts of my face to ensure this foundation goes on smoothly. I have VERY sensitive skin that is prone to acne, and this does NOT make me break out. Love it, would highly recommend this foundation to anyone!
This foundation is one of the best I have used. It does not settle in fine lines snd wrinkles, stays on all day and does not change color. The coolbone is the color I use. My skin is fair with pink undertones and this gives me just enough color without looiking artificial. I have had difficulty color matching my skintone and have found this one to be just right. Highly recommended.
After reading many negative reviews about this product, I felt compelled to write a positive review! First off I will mention that I never tried the old formulation of this foundation therefore I cannot comment on it. Also, this is the first EL product that I have ever purchased. I bought this after trying a sample of it for a couple of weeks. My skin type is very oily (with a couple of dry patches on occasion), acne prone with mild rosacea and areas of hyper pigmentation. When I first wore this foundation I loved the coverage but my face looked like I was wearing a mask. I tried it again using much less product and blending it out really well. Application is key to using this foundation. It does dry quickly so I do half my face first and then do the other half. I ensure my face is properly prepped to avoid emphasizing any dry patches. What I love about this foundation is that it lasts forever, doesn't oxidize, doesn't give me a "muddy" look if I get oily, hasn't broken me out and it covers my pigmentation. My shade is Rattan which is good for my yellow undertone skin. Because my skin can get very oily, other foundations I tried in the past darkened throughout the day. This is the only one I tried that didn't do that! This foundation is really great for my skin type and needs.
I was looking for a foundation that lasts all day and really feel in love with this one! I've tried lots of other foundations and none of them delivered like this one has. I live in Alabama and this foundation lasts all day long even with high humidity. If you are looking for a foundation that lasts all day please try this one.I also don't know why everyone is complaining about the color, I found a shade that matches me perfectly!
I always used this foundation in the color "softan". Then I just felt I needed a color change, I actually tried another famous brand foundation who claims they have a 24 hour foundation. NOT SO! That foundation is not even in the same class as Estée Lauder, and it cost more. So I realized I needed to get just a different color from EL and after a few minutes on a live chat with a EL rep. They guided me to use "spiced sand" and I could not be happier with the color. And Estée Lauder's formula can NOT be beat!
I've tried loads of different foundations, drugstore & high end. I always go back to Double Wear. It's beautiful, soft, natural & has amazing coverage. I find it works best when I lightly apply a sheer first coat & go in with another light second coat. I don't need two coats, but I prefer it because of my blemishes. Although it's a little costly, I think it's a fair price. Especially with all the disappointment I've bumped into with all the other foundations I've tried. Use sparingly & this foundation will last you a very long time. When I wear this foundation, I receive a lot of compliments on how I look quite lovely & like I'm glowing. Nothing quite like a product that makes you feel 100%
Finally I have found a foundation that keeps my oil slick t-zone well covered all day. Fantastic coverage, not cakey. Keeps shine under control all day without looking dried out or slipping. A little difficult to blend initially but it does on perfectly if I apply oil free moisturizer then apply foundation with my fingers before it's dry. I use a foundation brush to blend the edges to finish. I don't even use powder any more! Love this stuff!!!
Natural, Flawless Finish...lasts for hours. My oily T-Zone is under control and I did not even have to powder my nose. No touch-ups what so ever throughout the day. I love wearing this and I can honestly say that I have found the most perfect foundation. My skin looks PERFECT! I have fallen asleep without taking my make up off...and woke up to perfect skin...I do not EVER recommend not removing your make up, but to prove a point...this stuff is amazing!
