AMAZING COVERAGE...but at a price. Seriously nothing compares to the coverage of this makeup. It's like photo-editing in real life. I only use it on my acne spots and scars and dark circles. It's too heavy to apply all over. However, this stuff breaks me out like crazy. I only use it for very special occasions because it's not worth the breakout. Make sure you wash it off before bed...that helps to prevent extra pimples.

I bought this a while back.
fell in love! but.....
color range is horrible. 5 was too light & 7 was to dark. (the lady told me there was no 6)
looks cakey& oily. got into fine lines.
but amazing coverage.
I suggest use as spot concealer only.
hope I helped..

Great for spot concealing, a bit cakey so use the tiniest amount and make sure to moisturize.
The lightest yellow tone they have is a bit dark for me.

This foundation would work beautifully for all skin types. Below is the regime you can follow to get the best out of it-
Hydrate your skin with ANR serum generously. Top it off with moisturizer and primer and leave it well for 30-40 seconds. Then very SPARINGLY dab product with ring finger under your eyes and onto any discoloration/scarring and then quickly and light handedly spread all over the face. You can use wet sponge too, make sure that amount of product is minimal to work with while building the coverage. For a natural look first application would do the trick. Pore minimizing serum can be used under the foundation if you have oily skin and the result would be flawless.

At first I thought this was the best thing ever - I'd put it on over problem areas on top of foundation or just wear it alone.. it is high coverage, probably the highest coverage I've ever tried BUT this comes with a drawback... it is VERY OILY. I didn't think much of it to start with as it covered so well but over time I realised this was actually making my skin worse. Not good considering the high price tag. A little goes a LONG way though - you'll literally never run out if you use sparingly but for me, the oil was a huge problem.

Ok this saved my life when I broke out baddddd! It covers extremely well and lasts pretty long. The only downside is it appears a bit cakey, but if you NEED coverage, use this, at least temporarily.

I have only got a sample of this product from the makeup department and am instantly in love with this. I have been using the sample for around almost a month now and I still have some left. I really want to buy it in full size. It has great coverage and you only need a little foundation to cover most blemishes. You don't need to use powder to set this foundation but you can if you want to. In the past I have used many different foundations and for the longest time my favorite was Almay clear complexion liquid foundation because it had the best coverage for a drugstore foundation and was reliable but I used that foundation up quickly and it did not have the coverage I wanted. The texture of the foundation was smooth and kind of silky feeling. It has amazing pigmentation and did not break me out or make my skin really oily. I give the Estee Lauder foundation 3 lippies for the packaging because I would rather have a glass bottle with a pump. 4 lippies for price because even though it is expensive it will save you money in the long run.

I am a huge fan of this. I don't give it much attention, as it isn't a sexy or luxurious product, but I ALWAYS have a tube on the go. The coverage is amazing, and a tiny dot dabbed onto a blemish will make it disappear for most of the day. I have acne-scarred skin, and would get nervous if I didn't have this to hand.
I don't use it everyday, just to touch up the worst bits on bad days (most days!), and sometimes on special occasions to finish off what other foundations can't manage. I sometimes get a bit carried away, and apply it like foundation to my whole face. This masks ALL imperfections, but I don't like the heavy finish.
For mixing a drop with lighter foundations, or applying like concealor, this is an outstanding products for non-cakey coverage.

I always have this in my kit as it is the best foundation I have found for covering most imperfections. I have acne scars and redness and this erases them and looks fairly natural as long as I don't put too much on. I literally squeeze out a tiny dot of this on the back of my hand and I apply with either a foundation brush or concealer brush depending on how large an area I want to cover. If I use this as a concealer I don't have to use foundation as well.
For those of you who have scars to cover, it will cover small scars and thread veins, but if you have a very large raised and shiny scar, the formula won't quite cling to it. I have a keloid on my chest and this will cover it somewhat but will disappear after a couple of hours.
My only niggle is that the range of colours isn't good, a bit too pink in tone. Since I use so little it doesn't really show but I wouldn't want to plaster this on.
This is a lot better than Double Wear for durability and coverage.
The other bonus is this lasts forever if you use the amount I do!

I have mild acne, blemishes and sensitive skin. I bought this because of the great reviews i found here on MUA, and because my previous foundation (Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Cream Compact) ran out after just 3 months of (daily) use (although i liked it very much i didnt like the fact that it didnt last long for my everyday use). Anyways, I was excited with the EL maximum coverage and started to use it the next day i bought it.
It covered my acne and blemishes with just a little bit of amount (it is really maximum coverage, so it does what it says, and a little goes a long way like the other reviewers says). The finish is very matte and the color was actually too fair for my skin color, it looked a bit cakey (and i just applied one light layer!), and i normally use foundations that looks natural and dewy, so this looks dull and unnatural to me (however, if you are okay with it, you can use bronzer and highlighter to make it look better).
Despite the fact that it looks dull and unnatural (i dont use bronzer or highlighter), i liked it at first because it made me save time by skipping all the concealing steps. At the end of the day, the foundation was intact, it kept my oily Tzone at bay, BUT my skin felt dry (i moisturized and applied BB cream before the foundation). After i removed my makeup i noticed tiny bumps formed in some parts of my face. I thought it could be hormonal or something so i kept using it for 2 more days, but the tiny bumps got a little bigger by day, i realized although only a small amount of foundation was applied, the coverage is so strong it doesnt allow my skin to breathe properly. I returned it after that for the EL Double Wear light, it is more natural looking for my age, but it has light-medium coverage so you probably need a concealer if you have blemishes, acne or dark circles.
I dont think this is a bad foundation, it just didnt work for me. I think it is recommended for people with oily but non-acne prone skin, who needs a long wear foundation (and knows how to contour/ bronze or highlight their face!).
