Liquid -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup

This is my holy grail! I wear shade 1W2 and there's literally no foundation that is yellow enough for me besides this one...
I have a lot to cover up and this does it so well while not looking cakey or that ugly foundation-y kind of texture that a lot of other foundations give you.
Keep in mind that this does not build though, so I apply a lot initially because if you try to layer it, it just removes the previous layer!
I have extremely oily skin and while this doesn't really keep me matte all day, the foundation itself stays in place and looking good if i blot and powder. I also have horribly acne-prone skin and this doesn't break me out.
I don't think I'll find a foundation I like more because of the finish, coverage, and color! Just wish this came with a pump.

This is a very nice foundation, the shades are good but there is always room for improvement. I suspected after watching some you tube reviewers and research that I was probably between cashew and 2w2, I think Rattan? they are both nice shades I can see being able to wear cashew (3w2) alone if I got a deeper tan in the summer and also alone on my forehead now, but as far as the rest of my face its just a tad dark, but 2w2 Rattan is a tad light and not enough warmth in it. I am a medium deep golden-olive shade shade and need a foundation that is yellow enough, dark enough and just a tad of warmth, and while I really don't actually need another foundation I will be purchasing both because I am used to the reality of having to mix foundations in-order to get my perfect shade (I am very picky about shade much more the formula actually). As far as long wear in a regular day it lasted fine in the dry Colorado summer but also didn't apply so much (I used a damp beauty blender) I set with my Urban Decay Naked Ultra skin loose powder in medium deep, I can see you can build this up easily but I prefer my skin to show through, I don;t have issues with texture really although my skin can be a bit dry, if that is the case for you I recommend you use a moisturizing primer before hand. For reference my skin tone I wear foundation colors : maybelline fit me dewy and Smooth shade 220, BB stick foundation 4.0 and 4.75 on the forehead, Nars all Day Luminous in Stromboli, L'oreal True Match in Shade w4 powder and foundation, MUFE HD Ultra in shade y345, Touche Eclate Foundation in shade Bd50 with a drop of yellow corrector added) LA girl HD foundation in warm beige. Hope that helps if your in the same shade range as me

Makes my t-zone, nose, and the areas around the nose look more oily after an hour of wear. Otherwise, the medium to full coverage it gives me is decent.

I broke out horriblyyyyyy! I am 35 and never break out! The coverage is great! Doesn't stick in your lines or accentuate pores but my face hated it! Another thing is, i dont know what people are using to take this paint off but my gosh! I used everything but a sander and still had traces on my cotton ball soaked toner! I wanted to love it and thought i was going to but I'm still on the look! :/

MUA has helped me to find brilliant products that I'd never come across if it wasn't for you guys, so it's time I'd give some back by writing a review.

As the penny pincher I am, it took me looong to dare to buy this. But as I'm turning 30 within a month I thought that it's more than time for me to debut in the world of serums. And yes, I had very high hopes on this one.

The first night it broke me out badly, but I kept at it, thinking it might be other circumstances that caused this: I got a few samples of others creams from Estee Lauder, that WAS supposed to be used together with the serum. Devastated, I excluded the new creams from my routine, went back to basics with what I knew would work (besides the serum), to really give it a fair chance. As the days went on, my skin got worse. It's itchy from when I apply it in the evenings, to the in mornings when I cleanse my face, and the itchiness of course worsened when cysts basically formed everywhere in my face. My pores got larger, the texture somehow got more rough and the acne it caused didn't exactly help..

Why did I buy this serum? Endless reviews online seem to hype this super serum, now it's gotten me wonder how many of those are fake? I really wish I hadn't purchased this crap in a bottle. If you are acne prone, don't make the same mistake as I did.

It's a nice creamy foaming cleanser but makes my face feel really "rubbery" afterwards. Same thing happened with the Estee Lauder crescent white cleanser. Lancome and Shiseido too, I get the rubbery feeling afterwards.

I can't believe that I took so long to jump on the Double Wear bandwagon. I should've known that there were some really good reasons for people to recommend this product whole heartedly. It's awesome.

I was recently color matched at the Estee Lauder counter and received a 10-day sample. Here's what I love about this foundation:

1) It is super lightweight on the skin even though the coverage is medium to full. I had been using a MAC cream foundation that I love. But the Estee Lauder foundation just feels wonderful and barely there on my skin.

2) The foundation doesn't rub off on anything during the day. It's truly non-transferable. So I don't accidentally get any on my hands, on paper or on the neckline of my tops. I use a powder over the foundation. I'm sure that helps.

3) I'm chocolate brown with reddish undertones. I actually tested three different possibilities since Double Wear has a great range that covers women of color nicely. I finally went with Deep Amber. It's a gorgeous warm color.

4) I have combination skin with an oily t-zone and dry cheeks. I prep my skin well and the Double Wear works perfectly. I wear the Smashbox oil-free primer on my t-zone under the Double Wear and I just do minimal powder touch-ups during the day. And for my cheeks, I wear a slight smear of oil under my moisturizer and the matte finish in the Double Wear doesn't dry me out.

5) The product washes away easily at the end of the day since it is so lightweight.

My only con with the product is the lack of a pump in the glass bottle. However the Estee Lauder counter now sells a pump separately for $10. The product is thin and close to a watery texture. So a pump helps you to control how much you dispense. Frankly the $10 pump will help me to recycle since I'm not about to throw it in the trash each time I finish a bottle.

What a great product!

I think it's a great product for really oily skin. My combination skin worked really well with this in the first month but after some treatments my skin got back to normal. The foundation felt wet and sticky on my face the whole day and after 2 hours it looked cakey. It doesn't work with anything. I tried all kinds of moisturizers and primers. It's a shame because I really wanted this to work for me.


Concealers -Estee Lauder -Double Wear- Stay In Place HIGH COVER Concealer SPF 35 (Cream Compact, NOT Liquid)

After buying and loving the double wear concealer in the tube, I bought this version, in the hopes that the lighter colour would match me better.
The colour did match slightly better, but the product itself does not hold a candle to the tube version.
It has disappointing pigmentation when blended out, makes me look extremely greasy after about an hour (and this is coming from someone who likes a bit of a dewy look), gives quite a streaky finish if you're not careful, and can't really be built up at all - if you try to apply a second layer, or to add some later on over existing makeup - it becomes a cakey, patchy mess. Oh, and if you try and put this under your eyes, it will crease in about 30 seconds, even with powder.
If it were cheaper I might be slightly less harsh when reviewing it, but it costs exactly the same as the tube version, which outperforms it by miles.

If you have quite dry skin, and are not looking for the highest coverage, you may well get on with this product. And it also has the advantage of having no fragrance.

This product performs so well for me... The only frustration is that even in summer, the lightest shade looks pretty orange in comparison to my skin.
Other than that, would completely recommend this to people who can find a match for their skin.
The coverage is very good. The lasting power is the best of any concealer I have tried - I can have sweat dripping down my face, and this stuff will still stay on. The oil control is very good, the applicator is convenient, and the price really is not too steep considering how long one tube lasts, and how much other mid-priced concealers are (which do not perform anywhere near as well).
It also formulated without fragrance, which is a bit of a gripe I have with many other cosmetics. (It breaks down collagen and irritates skin... I don't need my concealer to smell pretty?)
It's also blends beautifully, and is very easy to work with. It would be hard to make this look bad.
The only con for this is that the shade range is a bit limited - but bear in mind that this is coming from someone who has this problem with the vast majority of base products... You may have much more luck if your skin tone is not super pale (or super dark).
Even with the bad shade match - I can just about make it work in summer, and have re-bought this many times.

If Estee Lauder ever come out with more shades, I will be so happy.

Primer/ Corrector -Estee Lauder -Matte Perfecting Primer

I had a large sample of this hiding in a makeup pouch for a while. I recently discovered and made use of it, having never really used a proper primer before. I have very fine, clear skin that is on the dry side. I prep my skin first with a facial oil and apply this under my Bobbi Brown foundation stick. I am amazed at the results. I actually haven't really visible pores, but at 40 I have some fine lines, and this blurs everything beautifully! What made me want to purchase this is the fact that goes beyond a primer and has lovely skin care ingredients. It is actually very much a primer and serum in one.

The formula for this foundation is my all time favorite. I have oily/acne-prone/sensitive skin and I wore this for a long hole day and it made my skin look incredible. I love the coverage and how flawless it makes my skin look. However, I am not a fan of the packaging and wish it already came with a pump. I am also not a fan of the palette ice but since it is my favorite foundation it is worth it to me.

I'm having mixed feelings about this product. I have a very oily skin, but I also have a lot of flakiness from dry patches.

Yes, this foundation does stay matte for a loooooong period of time. I am loving this aspect of the foundation and I can understand why it's so well loved by many who has oily skin.

However, it's not that great for those who suffers from acne, textured skin etc. The foundation is so matte that it actually dries the skin (probably because of the presence of alcohol). It makes my skin look so old and bad. Maybe it's just because I haven't moisturise my face enough, or that I didn't exfoliate my face before using this foundation.

I'm just really not loving this foundation as much as I wanted to... Maybe I'll give it another try when my skin is in a better condition.

This foundation was raved about on YouTube so I wanted to try it. I never used the Double Wear formula because the lightest shade was too dark & orangey. This stuff is a good shade in the lightest shade, but it just doesn't have much coverage even if you try to build it up and looks patchy after it starts to break up, which is only after a couple hours. I'm very disappointed, but I'm glad I can return it! I'd bought the pump (sold separately) though which now makes me realize I wasted money. I only recommend this if you have no skin problems, very dry skin, & want something more natural looking.
