I LOVE, LOVE this foundation!! It is my new favorite!! I used to wear Clinique Superfit but have switched to this one and I LOVE it!! I have been wearing it for a year. At first I used the shade 2, but since it is winter and I haven't been outside in the sun, I now need shade 1. It is a nice, lightweight coverage. It wears all day long on my normal (slightly oily) skin. In my opinion, it covers without being cakey. I have pretty good skin, but I wanted something to even out my skin tone and not look un-natural. This evens out the small blemishes I have and my skin looks flawlesss all day! The colors look really great on my skin tone.. no orangey undertones! I can't stand makeups that turn colors! Excellent NATURAL looking, long wearing foundation!
I was looking for a foundation that wouldnt make me really shiny after a few hours but unfortunately I was pretty dissapointed with Double wear light. It felt really thick and made my skin slightly flakey around my nose, even though I have oily skin. I returned it to the store to get a refund after trying it twice - the make-up assistant had told me that estee lauder had a money back policy if you werent happy. I just found that it took a couple of mins to put it on and then 10 mins to fix the problems it caused. It is also tough to remove. Will continue looking elsewhere for a decent foundation.
The foundation lasts all day, but the coverage is light. I thought I would love it since my acne is not as bad, but I was wrong. I will take it back and stay with the original double wear. (I guess I will always need the full coverage)
I loved the finish and texture of this foundation but on the second day of wearing this I noticed I had more active breakouts than usual and the surface of my skin was not smooth at all. So I figured it had to be this product that was causing it. Now after a week or so of trying to get my face back how it was I'm finally "recovering."
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.
