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.
Best For: full coverage, oil control, covering acne, flawless face
I used to use EL double wear years ago. I loved it, but always felt heavy like I was wearing make-up and a little bit of cake face. The coverage was phenomenal, but it's even better now! I bought Ecru, perfect neutral for my fair skin tone. Goes on more smoothly. The texture is a little thinner than before, but the coverage is still the same, goes on like butter! It dries down better than the previous formula, less sticky. Because it's less sticky, I feel that I don't need to powder my face at all with this new formula. It's quite wonderful, super light feeling with full coverage. I do have a lot of acne scars and hyper-pigmentation to cover. Well done EL! A change for the better!
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.
Use the EL Matte Primer and a good moisturizer. The foundation works well for mature combination skin. The color I selected is perfect for my medium brown skin. It looks very natural and provides a nice glow which makes me look younger. I use a sponge to apply the foundation. The coverage can be applied light, medium or full. Please do not change the formula. I am vey satisfied with the product.
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!
Warning to anyone who previously purchased Double Matte (which was discontinued) and was told that Double Wear was an excellent replacement. It's not true! I wasted money on this product. The coverage is not good, and the consistency is thinner than Double Matte. I will never understand why companies discontinue what appear to be popular items. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS IN PLACE OF DOUBLE MATTE.
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.
I LOVED your old DW Stay-In-Place Makeup, but I am VERY disappointed by your new formula. I am extremely fair, and the old 1C1 Shell 15 was the BEST foundation I'd ever used. When the saleswoman informed me that you'd stopped making it, and suggested another color (Cool Bone), I tried it, but it isn't the same. The color is different, as well as the feel of the make-up. Had I known, I'd have purchased more than just the one extra bottle of my favorite the last time I was at the cosmetics counter. I am so sad . . . please bring back "my" color . . .
I am still on the search for the perfect foundation for me. After reading countless reviews, I thought this would be the one, but I was wrong. It begins to dry as soon as you apply it to your skin so if you don't blend quickly, you'll have dry streaks on your face. The coverage isn't full, it's more of a medium coverage, and if you apply more it will give you that too-much makeup look. Also, for this to be called "Double Wear", it wears away pretty quickly. I will apply it, then in a few hours I check a mirror and it has worn off in places. Once this foundation sets, it makes your skin look dry and cracked and it feels tight. Another thing I didn't like is that the foundation didn't even come with a pump. I had to spend more money to buy a foundation pump (which fit the EL bottle perfectly) to get the foundation out of the glass bottle. In all, this was a huge letdown.
I've been using this foundation for peobably 3 years now and I'm still quite happy with this product. However, as others have noted, the formula has changed. I still find that I have a great color match but its not as full coverage as it once was. In my opinion, I'd say it was medium coverage. I miss the old formula but the new formula works fine for me too. I just need to add concealer to get the look I want. With the old formula, concealer wasn't necessary. This product dries quickly so work with it fast in sections. I've never had luck with the EL foundation brush so I use either a sponge or clean fingers and work fast. I find the staying power is still quite long however, my face has become more oily over the last year. At the moment, I'm searching for a primer to get my oil at bay that will work with this foundation.
I'm so tired of makeup companies changing their formulas, and forcing me to hunt down a good foundation again and again. Double Wear has been changed. The ingredient list on the box is completely different from what I used to buy. The old formula was wonderful and made me look and feel incredible. The new formula has ruined the skin under my eyes. Drying out the skin till I look like the "crypt keeper" under my eyes. I am 44 years old with mostly oily skin, but this formulas is too drying. I'm done with Estée Lauder!
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.
