Love this product. Not only does it look flawless on but it lasts all day long in the sun, at a club after hours of dancing. At the end of the night my make up is intact, I've had so many girls ask me how its possible. With this product you most definitely need to use Estee Lauder Double Wear Mineral Rich Loose Powder Makeup, it completes the look. Drastic difference. The two go hand in hand for gorgeous flawless look. Beautiful in pictures. I've used foundations from Mac, Natural FX, Lancome, Guerlain and none of them impressed me as much as the double wear.
So yesterday I had a fun time running around at Universal Studio WITHOUT HAVING TO WORRY ABOUT MY MAKEUP. I've seen reviews on this and it is suppose to be very long lasting. And after yesterday, I prove it to be VERY VERY VERY along lasting. Wore it in the morning around 7am and it stayed on there for the whole day. I reached home at 12 and it is still there! It is very light. I dun even feel it there! And it helps to control my oil! Normally, if I were to go USS, in the afternoon I would have to use more than 2 blotting papers and would need to blot it around 4-5 times but yesterday, with this baby, I only blotted twice w only 1 piece of blotting paper. One in the day and one in the night. The only thing that I didn't like about this is the packaging. No pump.. Kinda hard to control the usage so gotta be extra careful when pouring! But all in all, I love it!
This is my HG foundation. I have really really oily skin and it does the job of controlling oil production really really well. No white cast as well which is always a plus. Used with the double wear concealer I can achieve a really flawless long lasting finish. Only took a lippie off cause the packaging isn't very hygienic. But will still repurchase.
To start off i would give the foundation itself a massive 5/5 but its the packaging that lets the product down slightly. However i feel that because the product is so amazing that people should still buy it anyway!
I had tried different MAC and Bobbi Brown foundations before but non of them gave that wow factor i was looking for in a foundation until i came across double wear! This is the BEST foundation i have ever tried and ticks all the right boxes for me. It give amazing coverage and covers up all the bumps and marks on your face giving you a beautiful even skin tone. It drys to a matte finish and stays on all day and night! No matter what i was doing this product would stay on. The colour i got matched my skin tone perfectly and was an absolute dream!
After using MAC makeup my skin had started to get oily and problematic but after using this for a month my skin started to go back to it normal complexion (along with a relentless skin routine).
It costs a few pennys but it is worth every single one. This product lasted 4 months for me but i work in a bar at night so i would be applying my make up during the day then taking it all off to reapply at night for work so you would probably get a couple more months out of it depending on your usage.
100% would buy and recommend this product for any skin type! Its fantastic!
I've wanted to try DW for years , but somehow never got round to it. This version is lovely(I believe there are others) It's a full coverage foundation,semi matte finish, by which I mean it's not that aging matte look,lasts all day , doesn't look streaky or cakey as the day wears on.Spf 10 , not ideal but I would never rely on any foundation as my only source of spf,you'd have to pile it on, I always wear sunscreen underneath.I use the DW concealer as I do have dark circles and this combined with the foundation gives me the best skin I've ever had.But really, I could skip conceaer with this foundation ,it's that good.I also use a little Mac blot powder to set it,but just a little as too much powder takes away from this lovely foundation.It's not a greasy foundation at all,I have combination skin and find this formulation ideal.It's got to be removed thoroughly, but we should all be doing that anyway.I think a lot of "breakouts" are caused by bad skin care.I'm NW 15 and wear the colour sand which is a perfect match.I wish I tried this years ago,now I'm looking forward to trying other EL foundations as this is my first.As for packaging, I would prefer a pump,sometimes I end up pouring out too much Price wise it' not cheap, but it's affordable.I've had more expensive that have been inferior to this one.I would recommend this make up to anyone.
I have been using this for 2 years but i am sooo upset that they changed the formula. It is not long lasting anymore, it does not have matte finish and does not give any full coverage. I am so dissappointed.
I've tried quite a few foundations ranging in price and brand, from drugstore to designer... I absolutely adore this foundation and can't recommend it enough, it's the best I've used by far.
I don't like wearing foundation because my skin is generally quite good, and I hate the feeling of something sitting on or masking my skin. This foundation is the exception - it doesn't feel like I'm even wearing makeup.
The formula is a liquid the consistency of cream, gives a buildable coverage, blends easily, and LASTS. I apply it by stippling with a beauty blender, and I find it so easy to manipulate and get a good finish. I prefer really-low maintenance makeup and almost never touch-up or re-apply during the day, and I don't ever need to with this foundation. I work in a bar, and when it's busy I get sweaty from rushing around and I get steam in my face from the glass washer - this foundation literally withstands it all with no need to touch up/blot/etc, it doesn't get streaky or wear off. In fact, the longer the wear, the more "natural" it seems to look.
Product life is also good because I only use a light layer to even out my skin, so I don't go through it quickly, which is just as well as it is a bit pricy... I definitely re-purchase though as for me, it has lived up to and surpassed my expectations.
I only give 3 lippys for packaging as it is a glass bottle with no pump, and I feel there would be less potential wastage with either a pump or a squeeze tube.
I don't usually go for Estee Lauder products, but after using this foundation I was tempted to try their Double-Wear Concealer and Illuminating Perfecting Primer, which I also love.
I've tried other foundations but there is no comparison. I use pale almond and it lasts all day. If I go out straight after work there is no need to touch up my make up - it really does last all day and well worth the rather expensive price tag. I'm sticking with this one!
This is the one foundation I cannot live without!!! If I run out of it I will panic so now I have like my little stock just incase.That is how much I love it.i have very sensitive and oily skin and since I live on a tropical island it tends to get even more sweaty and pink.But estee lauder double wear just makes my life easier.if iam going for an entire day at sea or the beach I just apply my primer,sunblock spf 20(that's because the spf 10 in the double wear foundation will not be enough in my case because of the very hot and sunny weather here) then I put my foundation then a little bit of brozer just so that my face doesn't look white with the sunblock on.And I can do whatever swim,stay all day in the sun and heat and my make up will still STAY IN PLACE.Its amazing.so thanks to estee lauder everything on my face stays perfectly together.i can protect my face from sunburn,have a flawless skin and at the same time pretend to have a natural tanned face :) so I would highly recommend this foundation to someone who has oily skin,rocasea,if your looking for a full coverage and even acne prone skin.i used to have acne before and I haven't got any breakouts ever since with this foundation and somehow people don't even notice I wear it.i get a lot of comments about how my skin has cleared up.This makeup gave me back my confidence and I never go anywhere without it.
This is pricey; so are many of EL's product line; high end products with a sticky price. I have been using this for a few months now and love the coverage. My only complaint is that my skin is dry and if I apply too much, there are dry patches that are impossible to remove. I use the Desert Beige and the match is great I'm glad a friend of mine works for EL and can get me their products at half price, otherwise I'd use their products a lot less. You get what you pay for sometimes, and this time, it's worth it.
