This foundation is similar in coverage to nars's tinted moisturizer (doesn't last longer than 4 hours on me) or bobbi browns bb cream (ok but expensive/ doesn't last well and a bit heavy). I really liked in when I wore it doing my day to day life, it lasted well over 9 hours and my skin still looked flawless. (For reference I'm oily, olive skinned and use the shade 1.0) However, I am in school to be a nurse, and my face + a hospital = an oily mess. This foundation only lasted about 4-5 hours in the hospital before I started becoming super dewy and eventually oily. I'm not a blotting type of person and have yet to find a primer that may help with the longevity of my makeup (if you know any really good ones PLEASE SHARE YOUR SECRETS WITH ME, especially if you work in a hospital and know how I feel.)

Anyways, I will continue to use this until I find something better/ in conjugtion with a great primer because this has been the only foundation with light coverage that lasts under normal conditions, all day for me.

P.s. I don't powder my face right after I put this on because there really is no need!! In terms of application, i use my fingers to sort of smear it on my face and then stipple it on.

I am so disappointed with this product. I have oily/combination skin and it barely lasts a couple of hours. I have tried several application methods and primers/powders to no avail, it just slides off my skin!
The finish on initial application is lovely and goes on nicely. It has a medium coverage with a semi-matte finish and is really lightweight on the skin.
On me however, the finish quickly turns shiny and melts off my face.
Given the price tag and the fact that (for my skin) this product does not keep its promises, I will not be repurchasing.
I'm not sure I will even bother finishing the tube.

I went to an Estee Lauder counter yesterday and had a very disappointing experience. As someone with VERY pale skin, I was not able to find any foundation in the Double Wear line :( The woman at the counter tried every light shade in every form of Double Wear foundation on me and just could not match me to one. I was sad to hear this because I've heard so many nice things about this foundation.

I highly suggest going to an Estee Lauder counter and getting a shade match first.
Any shade that was close to my skin tone oxidized and turned somewhat orange and too dark for me in a matter of seconds. Please be careful buying!

(lippie rating just bc I had to have one to post)

This is the best light weight foundation for my combo oily skin. The coverage is sheer to medium and it stays on for a pretty good amount of time. The finish is very natural. Not too matte, not too dewy. I feel like it does control the oiliness around my nose. The only down side is that the shades are so limited. I'm about an NC 25-30 and picked up intensity 2. It would've been perfect if it had yellow undertone. But intensity 2 is more on the pink side while intensity 3 is more on the yellow side but it was too dark for me. The pink undertone isn't too obvious on my Asian skin but I guess I'll still be on the hunt for that perfect foundation.

I have an oily T zone and the rest of my face is normal/dry, a classic combination skin type. I bought this foundation without trying on my face and when I first applied it, it didn't impressed me very much, but eventually, it did! It absorbed the oiliness on my T zone and kept my cheeks moisturized. I just wish that the coverage was a little bit more, but that's ok too, I use 2 layers, and voila, a natural finish (more on the matte side)! Great foundation, kept me matte -and not cakey or patchy- all day. (I like to apply it with RT Buffing Brush)

Bought shade .5. This shade is a suitable match for the pale/fair complexion with neutral or yellow undertones. Absolutely too pale for the fair to light complexion or light complexion.

"Dries" quickly to a sticky/tacky texture. Because of this it was blotchy all over my face. Near impossible to blend well. I exfoliate and moisturize before applying makeup. Even still, this foundation made any and all teeny tiny dry skin flakes stand out horribly.

It does last forever on the face. Did not irritate my very sensitive skin. These are the two pros hence why two lippies.

Do not understand the hype with this. I have oily skin and this just really didn't set well o my skin at all. It was blotchy and I could feel it on all day, it didn't help my oiliness and the lightest colour ORANGE and i'm not even that fair. Well this put me off trying the double wear original formula. If I can feel this then i'm definitely not going to like that. If you are someone who likes mac studiofix fluid you will probably like this although even studiofix was better on my skin.

I just purchased this in intensity no.2. The colour's perfect for my skin.
It has a little dewy finish but not oily. Coverage is like bb creams of Korea (think Missha's perfect cover).

I have oily skin and live in humid Darwin in Australia. I continually wear this foundation as it's the only one I can find that has a fighting chance against the humidity and my oily skin. I switched to this light version because I feel like my skin breathes better and thus lasts longer, even though the coverage is not as good.

Definitely the best foundation ever. It lasts all day I don't need to use it twice. I have very oily t-zone and this foundation makes oil control. Not as heavy as double wear but its coverage is enough and also buildable.
