Love this foundation. Never thought I would want something with more than sheer coverage, but very easy to blend and you certainly can use just where you need it, rather than all over your face if required. Definitely looks very natural and just as if you have very good skin tone. Covers most of my imperfections, but still need concealer for any recent blemishes. I put some translucent loose powder over the top and it stays fresh most of the day. I still blot with rice papers halfway through the day, but I think I always will, whatever the foundation as part of my routine. Only issue is the packaging, I wish it came in a bottle with a pump as the tube is messy and needs constant wiping - it doesn't seem to stop coming out, even when you put the lid back on. Almost replaced with Lancome Miracle Teint, but the Lancome broke me out badly so pleased I only had a sample of it. Went straight back to Doublewear Light and my skin cleared immediately! Must learn not to stray again!
love this foundation-makes my skin look silky soft.
its a light to medium coverage and stays put all day.
i gave it a 4 because i use this in 3.0 which is a tad to light and intensity 4.0 is too orange.
for reference i'm a mac nc42
I am very impressed with this foundation!
I was looking for something that would last all day but didn't look cakey. Having read the reviews here I ventured for this foundation.
As people mentioned that it can be hard to blend, I decided to use it on top of my Garnier BB cream and... Ba ba boom! It is perfection! My skin glows and looks so silky! It is true that it does not cover everything, but it does make your skin look so glowey and silky in such natural way!
Just one tip, I use a hint of studio fix powder to set it, and it really looks great and last all day
not very impressed but honestly it is not a bad product. light to medium coverage-not enough for me. the coverage is obviously worse than DW original version. but it’s very natural and can last for a long time just as DW. so recommend it to those girls who dont need much coverage.
My favourite foundation, stays all day and covers acne very well.
I've been using this foundation for almost a year now and I'm satisfied with it. It covers any redness, and imperfections that I might have, but I do still use a concealer for extra coverage. I use 1.0 intensity, which is the fairest but goes on a bit orange, so I go over it with a fair setting powder, which lightens it up a bit.
I decided to buy this foundation after trying the Double Wear, thinking I would like something with lighter coverage. I loved Double Wear, it comes in light enough shades for my pale skin and it kept me matte pretty much all day and does stay put very well. However, the double wear light does not come in as many shades and the lightest shade (intensity 1.0) looks orange on me when I first put it on, so I have to blend it VERY well, especially along my jawline to avoid the dreaded tide mark fiasco. It does eventually blend in and matches my skin tone.
My verdict is, that if you have oily skin you should be fine with this, it is very mattifying in my opinion, my t-zone stays relatively shine free all day, perhaps needs a minor powder touch up. It does blend alright, but not AS well as the original double wear. The consistency is not as runny as the Double Wear, so it can feel "sticky". The coverage on this is not that much different to the Double Wear, it is meant to be lighter but I think I would put it at medium to full/buildable coverage. It is a shame that they do not just do it in the same shades as the Double Wear, WHY do the high end brands do this?? Clinique are also repeat offenders of this, they bring out all these different ranges of foundations and each range has completely different colours! Intensity 1.0 is definitely not my shade at all, it isn't light enough, but it will eventually blend, you just have to persist, depends how much you like it.. (and also I cannot take it back now so I am having to deal with it). The packaging however on this one is better than the Double Wear, tubes are far more convenient than bottles, which tend to be messy.
Portable, hygienic tube. Medium thick liquid that's blendable and great for concealing, or, applied lightly, all over on oilier days or when long-lasting natural matte coverage is necessary. Not moisturizing at all, however, but fortunately it doesn't highlight flakes if skin is properly moisturized before application. Also, its mineral-based SPF doesn't irritate me. Might get it again at some point, as Intensity 1.0 is a pretty close match for my skin tone, but it's not an immediate repurchase. EDIT: Umm, this is slightly too dark and definitely too pink for my undertone. Just saw myself in bright daylight, and my neck is so yellow compared to my face in this foundation. Too bad -- if not for the shade, I would have gotten it again.
Love this. The look it gives my skin is beautiful and it lasts throughout my sweaty workday on a medical unit...somehow, despite the rough day at work, my skin keeps looking marvelous...I'm just slightly “dewy” after work...which is an unknown thing to this oily skin prior to DoubleWear Light. The fresh application gives a just this side of matte, satin finish...more matte than my natural, shiny skin, but not *matte*. As one who is finicky about foundations or concealers looking cakey or mask-like, I'm impressed with this stuff, I can't feel it on my skin, and on days off/bumming around the house, I look in the mirror and am surprised at how pretty my skin is...then I remember I'm wearing DoubleWear Light :P
I apply intensity 1 (nw20ish here) with my fingers as a light-medium coverage foundation just around my nose and out to my temples to hide my rosacea. The finish is flawless...somehow letting my natural skin show through while covering up the redness beneath. Even on days my skin is slightly on the flaky side (oh the perils of oily, rosacea skin), DoubleWear Light seems to even things out beautifully. Photographs marvelously as well.
Expensive, yes, at around $54 per tube. But just a tiny drop is all I need to cover the areas mentioned above...and the performance and finish is so perfect, it's worth every penny. continued >>
I personally break out from many different foundations (almost all mineral foundations, BB creams, almost all Chanel foundations) but this foundation does not break me out at all.
I don't think it is light - the coverage is probably more like medium.
It is not heavy enough to completely cover dark eye circles but definitely enough to cover the redness around my nose.
The finish is semi-matte to matte. I never look oily with this foundation on.
Overall, I like this foundation quite a bit. I hate the packaging however. I don't know if other people have this problem but I usually put the foundation standing up (so the gold lid is facing the counter). Because of this, so much foundation comes out non-stop. I tried for several weeks to put it laying down but it still has this problem! Even after half-way being through, it still comes out like crazy without me applying ANY pressure to the bottle. :( What a waste.
The gold lid is quite pretty though..
