Love this. I have horrid skin I mean old, wrinkled and excema 50 years on this earth skin. I have a drawer of foundations. This needs a good serum and moisturizer under it. Sponge application works best. I put it on in a thin lyer and then use some of Rihanna's foundation on spots that need a little more. People actually compliment my skin. What... not turn away in disgust. No really they tell me my huge pored skin looks pretty. Crazy. Am I being punked? So I am a big fan. I think prep is key and a damp sponge. Don't buy the pump. Just shake the bottle each time. Estee should be ashamed charging for a plastic pump. Greed? Not sure but that is criminal and no need for it.

I got a trial size of this when buying eye cream. I looked at this watery stuff and didn't expect much from it, but I got the most unexpected results. I have had a problem with cheek redness for many years, it's not an age problem, its more a sensitivity problem. I seem to get bright red in the cheeks when there is a change in the heating, or if I get upset, flustered, or just about anything, my cheeksflare up. So now this trial size bottle, seeing it said Night Repair I used this at night only, under my regular moisturizer. The next morning I just used only my creme without this. So then the day rush began, I glance at myself midday, saw my cheeks were normal skin, not bright red or hot, I knew immediately that this amazing Night Repair had fixed my cheeks so quickly. I did go buy a full size to continue and been using night and morning, as per instructions on the leaflet, although I think I could use this ANRSRC ll only at nights. I use on my cheeks, not all over my face. Wonderful stuff to buy on sales

This makes me break out...at first I figured it must be because I didn’t take off my makeup at night before (sometimes I do tend to get lazy) but even when I do take off my makeup at night, I’d notice the next day, a cystic acne would start to appear!
Also, it does oxidise. And I’m not a fan of high coverage foundation even though I have blemishes. I prefer to put on light-medium coverage foundation that looks like skin to even out my skin tone and I put on Laura Mercier concealer to cover my acne spots.
I stopped using this after a few usage and will definitely not repurchase this.

Sad to say that in a nutshell...the worst foundation for my skin. I wish I could say it didn’t break me out but omg I had the worst acne breakout since I was 18. Comedones, whiteheads, acne cosmetica all over forehead, cystic acne. The works. I am very careful with my skincare and getting every scrap of makeup off my skin at night so I don’t breakout, but this stuff must have been welded on in my pores still and I didn’t realise. I wish I knew how other people with acne prone skin got on so well with it and how they removed it.Also, within a couple of hours it oxidised.It was very cakey which just accentuated the flaws, dry patches and bumps. Photos look like your a ghost due to flashback.Sad it didn’t work for me as it seems to work well for so many others.

This cream has become my favorite moisturizer. It is lightweight and absorbs quickly, leaving only a healthy residue on the skin. The scent is subtile. Though it does not feel heavy at all, i will wake up in the morning with healthy, glowing skin. No dry patches anymore. The best part is that it did not break me out which is a true miracle. I was so tired of spending money on skincare cause i would never use it anywhere but on my hands. Now i found this one and i have no problems. Only thing is... it is jarpacked. So we know that the antioxidants will eventually break down when in contact with lots of air and light.I store it in the dark, only open it at dimmed light and just for a few moments to get the product out of it with a spatula. That is not the most convenient process but i rather do it than wasting this creams potency. For reference: I have dry skin with lots of patches and small impurities. The Ordinary Buffet and Niaceramide Serum, Hylamide Subq, Paulas Choice Resist Line and BHA, Mizon Snail, Missha Aqua Collagen broke me out.

I have sensitive, dehydrated and prone to rosacea skin. So when a MU blogger recommended I try this foundation because of its “dewy” effect (which by the way, I so badly want and need), I thought I’d give it a try. My issue with most foundations are that they oxidize and/or they have a Pink undertone, hence I am Neutral with a more yellow undertone——very important to know when it comes to buying a foundation.
First of all, NEVER buy a foundation after color matching it in store. The lighting sucks. I ended buying 2N1 Desert beige, and it looked perfect instore. Soon as I got into the car and into the natural light, there it was, that crappy pink undertone I hated. I then went back to try out a shade darker and the match was perfect, 2N2 Buff.
The coverage is good, actually too much as I like a light to medium coverage. I’m disappointed though as the product does become cakey and creases into my smile lines maybe because my skin is just too damn dry. I do not get that dewy look so I have to keep applying a face mist to achieve a dewy complexion.
Staying power is good but does become patchy on my drier areas. I tried this foundation over my Dermalogica Hydra Blur Primer and it did NOT look good at all. Its better without a primer. love that it does not oxidize and that Estee Lauder caters for different undertones which is a plus for me. If Estee Lauder could come up with a water based BB cream with the same perks as this foundation, I’d be the first one to buy it.

Aerin is a high priced Estee Lauder line. I received this hand cream (in a tube) as a gift. It's thick and has a moderate rose scent. I don't find it all that moisturizing, although it does work well on top of lotion to keep moisture in the skin. I don't care for scented products and the cream is nothing special, so this is not a product I would purchase.

I've always been afraid to try bronzers, but I'm really happy I let the EL sa talk me into this one. I'm very fair, but I have rosacea so I don't tan. This bronzer gave me a very nice glow, nothing orange or muddy. I'll definitely repurchase.

The coverage is pretty nice. It will look good on those who have to cover up acne.If you have a dry skin, it will make it even more dry by the end of the day.After 9-10 hours you will see it will start to clump around the eye area. 4 out 5 because of it makes the dry skin even more dry.

I have the shade innocent which is a beautiful glossy creamy peachy nude on the lighter side, perfect for every day. Applies nicely and the packaging is stunning.I can't wear it at all though because if the plastic smell that makes my stomach turn horribly. I don't have similar problems with most lipsticks particularly with Estee. I love the regular Color Envy line lipsticks too but haven't encountered anything remotely revolting. My lips felt desperate for moisture so I though it was spoiled but the SA I turned to confirmed It was just fine. Too bad I couldn't return it because it was a gift and they don't accept returns of tested products in my country. Horrible stuff.

I've been searching for a full-coverage foundation that works as a concealer because sometimes I need/want just a little concealing, other times I want a full-face of foundation, and having "it all" in one tube helps cut down the number of products I need to keep around. I've used Clinique's continuous coverage for years but it’s hard to find and my local Clinique counter is often oos. I've also used Estee products in the past and felt that they performed well, so I decided to give this a try. Besides, the blue tube just totally appeals to me... if you look at the foundation lineup on any mu retailer, they're all boring skin tone beige brown or black, where this blue tube jumps out and grabs my attention, making it easy to find the tube. The opening of the tube is very tiny, I like this, so a bunch of product doesn't squirt out either, it's easy to dispense just the tiniest bit and not be wasteful.For a concealer, I think it works well, a little goes a very long way, the tiniest dot does my under eye area and a little around my nose. As a foundation, it is a bit drying, my skin is dry anyways, but this takes careful prep to make sure I'm properly hydrated. It doesn't set up right away either so I have a bit of a chance to fix it, but once it does set, I don't notice any transferring. I guess I'm pretty lucky to have the right skin tone because the 1N3 creamy vanilla works for me, I feel like I won the Caucasian lottery and I have the ideal pale skin tone, and could find a tone that works even if I got some sun.Update 04/22/2018After having this for a few months now I am finding I like it more and more. The fact the shade 1N3 matches my skin tone is amazing, so I have been using this as a full face foundation. It doesn’t set up immediately but does set faster than, say, a tinted moisturizer, so I like to blend it with a kabuki brush. My skin is dry so prep is essential and a light layer of marula oil does wonders. Koudos to EL for expanding the color range, 1N1 is actually the color I wanted (and now have) to use as an undereye concealer. It’s actually a perfect match to my neck so I can wear it as well, I don’t have much to cover but I like the finish of this and the fact it doesn’t transfer onto any of my clothes. I had a problem this winter with getting makeup on my jacket collar and found a few scarves to prvent this, but this makeup wasn’t the culprit.

I love this foundation! A little goes a very long way. My skin looks absolutely flawless after. It also wears so well. I have gone to festivals mid summer when the temperatures are in the high 90s and been outside for hours, looked in the mirror, and been shocked by how good my skin still looks. It’s amazing. It can feel a little tacky at times, but setting it with a foundation is all it needs. It’s such a great foundation. You can wear it light or layer it. Dries semi matte. I love it.

I have bought this foundation three times. This is the King of all foundations for me. The coverage is buildable and about medium coverage when applied with a brush (I use a Morphe M439). If I put this on in the morning and go about my day I know it'll be on when I enter my house at ten at night. I always wear this and always get compliments on how great my skin looks! I have the oiliest skin, it's acne prone and I almost always have at least three pimples. I also live in a very hot, humid climate. I will say this is not matte. and I do get very shiny throughout the day but I am not a fan of matte foundations so that's fine for me. This breaks me out if it isn't washed off correctly, and by that I mean use more than a makeup wipe. I despise the fact that it has no pump, I'd like it more even if it was in a squeezy tube but this bottle is annoying. All in all though, a beautiful foundation and I would recommend it to everyone! (I have recommended it to my mom, three of my aunts, my sister, four of my friends and everyone has had great results with this!)

Well, this may well be my favourite foundation ever.
I used to be a fan of EL Double Wear the original, however the last couple of years I have avoided it as felt it is now too heavy for me as I am now 35. I would say age plays a part as I now look for a sheerer and lighter coverage.
It is a light and watery texture and I would class it as a light coverage. It evens out my skin tone but I have to go in with concealer on blemishes.
The finish is dewy on me and I have normal skin. I do set with powder and a setting spray and it still looks great 10 hours later, though maybe a blot is necessary but I don’t as I don’t mind a touch of shine for a natural look.
They have a great colour range and I found a great match for me.
I hope this helps

BB cream user here. I spend a lot of time on my lips and eyes but generally just smear a bit of (cheap) Garnier BB cream on my skin.
However, given that I’m staring down the barrel at 30 and given that my skin really isn’t that great (oily, red, pores, etc) I resolved to put in more effort, including using higher-end foundations.
-Surprisingly good colour match for me (True Beige)
-Not patchy, or whatever the proper term is for “not sticking to and emphasizing all the fine hairs on your face”
-Light and breathable
-(Totally not original but...) my oily face looks, well, oily. Maybe not much more than usual but the difference between this and a B.B. cream a fraction of the cost is negligible
-Transfers easily. I understand that the original double wear is famous for doing the opposite of this. Annoying in a corporate environment - my white shirts get lovely little (water resistant) finger prints all over them thanks to my bad habit of touching my cheeks while thinking
-INCREDIBLY liquid. I opened the bottle a little too forcefully and promptly spilled a third of it all over my floor.
I will probably buy again, but only because I have a soft spot for Estée Lauder (although the continued animal testing is threatening to change this!) and the colour match is good. Hopefully will stay put longer in colder weathers.
Edit:- possibly just because of my aforesaid oily skin, but I find that this NEEDS a dusting of translucent powder to finish it off. Sans this it just kind of “sits” on my face.
