This wears pretty well on the skin all day, but does start to cling on to any oil that comes throughout the day... which can accentuate any pores or dryness that you have. However, the coverage of this foundation is full, a little bit really goes a long way, so this will last me years. The finish when you first apply it is flawless, airbrushed, and a soft-matte, at the end of the day, if you look up close the makeup will start to cake, but it's still covering, and from farther away it's not that noticeable. It's not perfect for this reason, but I have this problem with all foundations(around the nose area especially), and this one stays on the longest even if it doesn't stay "fresh" all day. I like Revlon Colorstay(normal/dry skin version), but this lasts longer, is a fuller coverage, and more pigmented so you don't use as much product. My skin is normal/ dry, and this works best when I have exfoliated my skin, and don't have many dry patches. I have a lot of redness I need to cover up, and this does the trick really without ANY concealer (with any other foundation I'll have to follow up with concealer), so this really is worth the money.

Liquid foundations rarely look natural on me 2 minutes after I apply them. I have far better luck with powder & minerals in general. That said, for long wear, I'm very pleased with ELDW liquid. It covered everything I wanted to cover without looking thick or mask-like, and never broke out or dried out my skin.
Given that it takes me much longer to apply and blend, as well as to wash off this longer wearing formula, I don't reach for it often. It is good stuff though, and I think I would use it more if I hadn't gotten my skin under control (finally) and if I lived in a more humid area.

I have been using this foundation for about five years and its awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! other than the packaging i have nothing bad to say. i would however, like to share with you ladies a time i had run out of my beloved double wear. i couldnt get to the department store before it closed so off i went to walmart, desperate i chose maybelline superstay 24hour foundation. its a beautiful product. almost the exact same! after a few uses i noticed a bit more powder is required to set the foundation. but only one blot throughout the day(same for dw for me anyway) Estee Lauder double will always be my number one, just wanted to let you all know about an alternative. In canada dw is $42 and maybelline is $12. so if your a bit low on cash, this product will hold you over until your next double wear purchase

I bought Nars Sheer Glow and this one at same time. Nars Sheer Glow broke me out really bad...i was surprised this one didnt. The coverage is great if you have a few spots and lasts all day. No need for primer or finishing products. It gives great coverage, i felt i didnt need too much.
Only downsides is because of the SPF it looks too white in photos. I wish Estee Lauder would stop putting SPF in products as i only wear makeup at nighttime and obviously theres not need then. Also when i accidently touched my skin during the day the make up went on my fingers and onto anything else. They would do with a pump or in a see through plastic tube. I think glass is too heavy anyway.
Overall...this has been the best foundation ive ever tried...they just need to remove the SPF from it

I have extremely oily skin, and I just couldn't find a foundation that wouldn't help with the oilyness, or not make me break out so much. This foundation has done the trick! I don't have to blot every hour, maybe just once a day, and it lasts all day. It gives me a matte finish and i top off the foundation with Mac's setting powder. Love this stuff!

Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation is full coverage, very fully coverage. It stays put. You could use your fingers or Mac 187 brush to apply it. The Mac 187 brush makes it really easy and then you could control on the coverage as it dries fast. You really need to work fast because in a minute it dries up. It is like Mac Pro longwer lipcolor as it does not comes off if you eat. It won't move or transfer on clothes. it won't melt. It stays up in the hotest temperatures, when it is really hot. It stays on for a long time. Like pro longwear lipcolor it dries in a minute so you have to blend it fast. If you have trouble using it try Mac 187 brush, it will allow you to control the coverage you want. If you want a foundation that stays put then this it is. It is fully coverage as Prescriptives Flawless finish liquid foundation ( which covers and feels great on the skin, Studio Finish Liquid foundati'on, and DiorSkin Forever Extreme Wear Flawless Makeup SPF 25 liquid foundationon, Revlon Colorstay (sticky), Studio finish powder. It is not sticky as Revlon Colorstay. It lasts a month if you use it everyday as in full coverage. It is good for acne porn skin. It won't break youn out at all. Not one pimple.

Great coverage, no irritation at all to my acne-prone skin. I have used this for 1 week continuously. So far it controls my oil pretty well, just need to blot my face 2-3 times. (with Revlon colourstay I need to blot it 4-5 times a day)
Feel clean and fresh and not too heavy. A bit pricey but love it:-)
Follow up: Use this for a month now, still liking it:-) skin didn't break out from it.

Fantastic full cover foundation! My color is 1N Ecru it is a perfect match. I tried this based on all the raved about youtube reviews. I am in between MAC NC15 & NC20. If you are a true NC15 this will be a tad too dark, and if you are a true NC20 this is a tad too light. I have horrible dark circles and always layer 2 or 3 high end pigmented concealers on top of my regular foundation. With this foundation, I only need 1 concealer because it knocks most of my under eye circles out. It is truly long lasting, sweat proof, and stays in place. You only need a tiny amount for the entire face. It gives a nice matte finish and can cover almost anything I would say. This can feel both lightweight and heavy depending on how much you use. For instance I could layer on MAC studio fix fluid and it never felt heavy or looked like makeup. If you use too much of this it will feel masky and kind of settle into pores. This is one of those foundations where I would recommend a setting powder because it doesn't feel soft until you set it with powder. I tested this foundation's non transferring claims and it passed with flying colors. I can take a tissue and blot any of my foundations, including mineral makeup and the foundations always transfer to the paper. If you press a tissue all over your face with a firm press the tissue remains white. No distinct scent, kind of like Revlon color stay, a mild natural fragrance. I'm very acne prone & have sensitive skin that turns red easily, no problems yet. Will update this review later. I am beyond pleased, and always thought Estee Lauder foundations were too dark and for older skin types but its working for me. Also 3 people bought this same foundation while I was waiting to get helped, they were all 30-65 so I think this foundation works for all skin types and ages. The coverage is buildable so start off with a small amount. It looks dewy the first minute but it dries matte. Cant wait to try the double wear light as well. 5 Stars but know this is an extremely full cover foundation! Makes your skin look flawless, and photographs beautifully! Has spf 10 too!

I don't know why I haven't rated this earlier... I like this foundation! It is one out there that keeps oil under control but at the same time doesn't emphasize all dry patches and looks very natural (if applied with fingers and sparingly!) The main factor of liking it so much is, of course, staying power! This stuff stays on for very long time! Have never broken me out, doesn't transfer on clothes and stays put even after swimming! I am 2N1 (NC 25) desert beige in it. And you get very good product for what you pay for! The main with this foundation is to moisturize very very well before applying it! I have normal/combo skin mainly, it tends to be oilier in summer and more dry in winter. I have to put a lot of moisturizer in winter and a bit less in summer but still have to put it on!As I mentioned even though I do have more oily skin in summer I still have to put some moisturizer under the double wear, otherwise dry patches and tight skin guaranteed.

I love Estee Lauder Double-Wear Foundation! I have been using this now for 2yrs. I've tried Lancome, Clinique, and Elizabeth Arden and others. This foundation gives me a very flawless finish and lasts and lasts! Sure, it's a little pricey but you get what you pay for, right? I do wished it had a pump...that's the only thing I can find wrong...is that there is no pump, lol. I have had many, many compliments while using this foundation. I will try different foundations, but always go back to Estee Lauder! Love it!!!
Update: 12/2/12....I am still using this magnificent foundation. Yes, I have tried others at Sephora, Ulta, Mary Kay, and Lancome but I ALWAYS come back to Estee Lauder Double Wear. I get so many compliments about how flawless my skin looks while wearing this. A little goes a long way, by the way! LOVE IT!!! I have even got several friends hooked on it!
