Liquid -Estée Lauder -Double Wear Light Soft Matte Hydra Makeup

The canvas I'm working with: 40, combo skin with hormonal acne, mostly, but not entirely under control, some texture and a tendency towards dehydration. Slightly oily/normal in the summer, normal/dry in the winter. My skin has been quite good by my standards for the last year or so, but I do have a bit of flakiness on the nose going on pretty much constantly, in spite of regular exfoliation, large pores on the nose, sometimes acne and things like that. No wrinkles, yet.

A note on shades and formulation: this is definitely the new, reformulated Double Wear Light. I have never tried the old one, so I can't compare formulas, but I am curious about that.
I have it in shade 1W2, the lightest warm shade that was available where I got it, which is a decent match. I wear 1W1 Bone in the original Double Wear, and both shades are alright on me, but not perfect. 1W1 is a tiny bit on the light side, this one will probably be a bit dark in a month or two. All Estée Lauder shades have a bit too much colour for me. I have olive undertones, my best foundation matches are slightly less saturated, more grey, and these very easily look orange on me because of that. The shades are quite saturated, and many of them have strong peachy undertones, even the N shades. Regular Double Wear 1N2 Ecru is quite orange on me, for instance. The yellow W undertones work much better, but can look a bit too yellow.

Ideally, I want a foundation that covers my occasional breakouts, doesn't emphasise flakes too much, doesn't produce polkadot pores, adheres well to my nose - that's often a problem for me - and looks at least somewhat skinlike. Creasing generally isn't a problem for me, but caking and separation sometimes is. I got this a while back because I wanted more of an evening/going out sort of foundation that would give more coverage and a less transparent, more perfected and "done" sort of finish than the Pixi H2O Skin Tint. I really love that one, and MAC Face & Body, but they do not give a lot of coverage. Long wear would be nice, too.

I have the original Estée Lauder Double Wear and wear it occasionally, but I find it very unforgiving on my texture and prone to caking up on me, so I always mix it with lighter foundations, like the aforementioned MAC F&B or the Pixi tint. This sounded like it might have something like the longevity of the original Double Wear with a smoother, more skinlike sort of look. It does pretty much that, I find, and I do like it a lot more than the original Double Wear, but I don't love the finish the way I love the finish of the Pixi tint, for instance. It looks good and wears very well, but it does look like make-up.

I don't really reach for this when doing evening make-up. I reach for this when I want a bit more coverage and/or longevity than the Pixi tint or MAC F&B on an everyday basis. I can apply this very fast with my fingers before work in the morning, straight on top of sunscreen, set it with a tiny bit of powder and count on it for at least 12 hours, usually more. I took this off after 16 hours yesterday night, and it looked fine, really. It was creasing a little around my nose by then and had worn off a little, but most of it was still present on my face and looked perfectly nice. Not very shiny, not cakey, not patchy, not separating in the slightest. It really does wear extremely well on my skin. Unlike the regular Double Wear and most other foundations under the sun, it doesn't settle very much in the pores on my nose, and it's really not bad at all on the flaky bits either. Fast and easy application, decent coverage, looks a bit more like make-up than I like, but wears reliably well? This is a very good everyday foundation for me. It's not a mind-blowingly beautiful evening foundation, but I like it and wear it.

Fragrances -Estée Lauder -Aerin Lauder Amber Musk

on 11/15/2018 3:59:00 AM

These fools are ruining Tuscany and Estee an trying to sell weak vanilla water in a fancy bottle. This company, once magnificent testament to American can do possibilities is being led by clueless fools who appear self destructive. This is weak, cheap smelling and BORING . It is supposed to be the high end line from EL . A joke totally , and the laugh will be on them when the sales continue plummeting .

Skin Musk from Wal Mart smells a million times better and lasts longer . What are they thinking? That we are idiots ?

I miss the beautiful , rich. And complex scents that graced the Estée Lauder counters most of my life . Many of them could not be given away now . ( Check out the watered down Tuscany and pitiful Aliage and sad Estee . I would not think of buying them in their present condition. )

Liquid -Estée Lauder -Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 30

I recently got a sample of this from a beauty store because I am looking for a new foundation. I have used the regular Double Wear before, but find it a bit too heavy for everyday use, so I was excited to try this one. However, this foundation does almost nothing for me.

The foundation has a very runny texture, which is easy to apply and blend just using hands. It evens out my skin color a tiny bit, but that is it. It doesn't really make the appearance of my skin any better and I just feel dull-looking compared to other foundations. This foundation is really expensive for almost invisible results!

This foundation is very similar in feel to The Ordinary Serum Foundation, however the The Ordinary foundation is far superior when it comes to the finished result, and that at a tiny fraction of the price! It also has a better color range, so I would recommend trying that foundation instead.

It’s been a few years since I’ve tried this, and I think that it comes in more shades now. When I tried it, they gave me about a 2 weeks supply as a sample. I didn’t buy it.
At the time, it was really hard to find any foundation that was light enough (shade wise) for my skin, but the shade that she gave me was close enough. I just used my fingers to apply it. The coverage was pretty good and I had awful acne at the time, so that was quite important to me.
It lasted all day and didn’t seem to visibly sink into my pores even though I didn’t use primer. It didn’t transfer either. But it did not look natural at all. In fact, my husband told me, without my asking for any opinion or even telling him that I was trying something new, that my skin looked like plastic. When I looked in the mirror, I couldn’t disagree. I’d really rather have discoloration or pimples peeking through than look like my face was made of plastic.
Even if it had looked good on me, I don’t like the fact that it doesn’t have a pump. I find that unhygienic and messy. It’s easy to pour out too much and waste it, and I don’t like holding my fingers or a sponge over the opening of the bottle, especially when I end up needing to do it over and over again. I still would have just dealt with that if the foundation looked good on me, but it didn’t.
If you want to try this, definitely get a sample first. A lot of people are able to make it work well for them. I wasn’t one of them, but you could be. Just find out by using a sample for a week or so before you buy it.

Mascara -Estée Lauder -Sumptuous Extreme

overall: 10/10

This is a fantastic mascara. It lengthens and adds drama to my lashes. I recommend cleaning off the wand before applying to the lashes as otherwise it can be very clumpy. I don't experience any flaking or smudging with this mascara. It is really expensive, but even so I would repurchase.
