My sister gave this as a Christmas Present for me this 2009. I used it a few times already and I find it ok for my skin. But the coverage was not that full. After a few hours, I can see that it was already wearing off and it's not a good sign since I have a lot of scars all over my face.
I love this product! most foundations make my skin orange- this makes it a warm even coverage. yes its a little pricy- but you dont have to use alot, so it lasts 4-5 months. so its well worth it!
I have this in intensity 4.0, its light but still covers my dark acne scars, feels like I'm not wearing anything but lasts all day. Looks very natural and photographs beautifully. I was really surprised how this matched my skintone, not nearly as well as Nars Sheer Glow does but I find this lasts longer and is more suited to the summer weather here. Great product!
I was looking for a good light or sheer foundation after MAC discontinued my favorite foundation.
I'm into two weeks of trial. Its a little more matte than I would like, but if I apply soon after the moisturizer, it blends and dries well. If I apply too longer after the moisturizer, it gets a bit cakey on the dry areas.
So far though, its worth it and looks a heck of a lot more natural than the MAC one I was using before. I am a MAC NC20, and wear Intensity 1.0 for this foundation. It has a good neutral shade that is not too yellow nor too orange like others turn out to be.
like the light coverage of this but dont like the colours! im desert beige in dw which means im intensity 2 in dwl. i find the 2 is slightly too dark and the 1 is too light so prefer dw as good colour match
shame they dont do a 1.5 as that would be perfect
have to wear powder to set,lasts all day like dw, not sure if it is a more sheer foundation or not as i only wear a little dw to get the same sheer affect as the dwl and the colours are better in dw
will prob stick to dw or ysl teint resist
if u want a sheer long lasting foundation i would def recomend the new ysl teint resist!
This is my current choice. Great staying power, with a bit of primer it even last through a workout. Good coverage, not as heavy as Double Wear which for me is a good thing since it feels like my skin can still breathe. I have to use some sort of corrector for coverage though but the result is as close to flawless as I can get.
Loooving it. I used to wear studio fix fluid but it just made my makeup look cakey en really heavy. This one has an amazing finish and covers up my imperfections pretty well (although I sometimes use the double wear concealer). Plus it lasts forever without moving. It's everything I've been looking for!!
Finally!! I've been looking for a foundation that doesn't need a powder to set it but isn't too matte and this is the one. The lightest shade works pretty well on me, wish it were a tad less pink since I'm warmer but still a good color. It covers my rosacea very well without being thick or cakey. I apply it with a slightly damp sponge and the finish is slightly glowy but not shiny. HG material!
It's a nice foundation, definitely feels lighter than the original Double Wear Foundation. Goes on smoothly, has a veletely feel/touch and a semi-matte finish. The staying power for me was good, only had to blot my nose once during the day and coverage is medium but buildable.
I was matched to #2, for color reference I'm NC25 in MAC Select Sheer Press Powder, C2 in Face & Body foundation from MAC, #120 in MUFE HD foundation, and Cream in the Stick foundation from Zhen.
The color os this foundation wasn't a perfect match, it was too pink and noticable for my yellow/golden skintone. Plus I wasn't too fond of the smell of this foundation and Estee Lauder could have used a higher spf that spf 10 in this foundation. There isn't really a nice skintone color selection for this either.
The overall rating for me is 3 lippies because of the little spf, smell, and color didn't match my skintone well enough.
The price of this is of course expensive for what you actual get, but that's Estee Lauder.
Package quality is nice. It's a tube, so it's easy to carry around with you if you need it near for touch ups (ex. vacation, travel, night out, etc.).
I would not get this product again even though it's a good foundation because there's no color match right for my skintone and because I can't stand the smell of this foundation. continued >>
Finally my HG<3
i love this product
i had worn it on a band trip one day, and in those big ugly uniforms it was way hot and i was sweating but the makeup didn't come off at ALL. Hasn't broken me out and makes my face look so soft. Pricey pricey pricey but you don't need all that much so it lasts a while. Will defiantly repurchase continued >>
