the one foundation i will always buy and keep in stock is my Estee Lauder double wear. this is my HG foundation and have repurchased it so many times.

-colour rage is awesome
-doesn't oxidize
-full coverage
-long lasting
-matte (perfect for combo/oily skin)
-works well with all skin types (no breakouts!!)

-little bit on the pricey side but average price for a higher end foundation (approx $48-$50 CND with taxes)

It is think but is an amazing DOUBLE wear and FULL Cover.
The only problem is the bottle.
I am from Korea, and there I was given a pump along with the bottle but here in Canada, they only give the open lid which is really hard to control how much comes out.
Really covers up all my acne scars, I had pretty bad skin but with this foundation, I get complimented all the time!

Love the packaging, love the product, love the shade range. This is my second favourite foundation of all time behind studio fix fluid from MAC. It gives a lovely medium to full coverage finish and applies beautifully with a real techniques expert face brush. I couldn't live without this foundation! I'm currently on my third bottle. I would recommend also using a light moisturiser underneath because it make my skin slightly dry in patches. Also,in order for it it stay in place for a long time I needed to setting with a powder, especially under my eyes. Definitely worth the price though! Love it :)

i was really really excited to try this foundation because of all the good things ive heard about it. I ordered it from Sephora in the shade Pebble because even though I am very fair skinned, i use foundation to look tanner. i got Pebble because pink shades usually look really good on me and bring out my eyes.
i have never been so self concious when wearing a foundation before! It went on weird and no matter what I did it was patchy around my mouth and on my neck. It just looked really weird. it also broke me out around my mouth which really upset me. Another thing is that it kind of took on a weird gray tone as the day went on, which other people noticed and commented on!
Im really dissapointed that I paid 37$ + shipping on this and it looked so bad and gave me acne! ill definitly be going back to Revlon colorstay!

It stays on forever. Full coverage. Even builable. I could probably wear this for two days straight without it disappearing. Even on my really oily days, it's there all day and it does it's job while I do mine. It could only be better if it didn't come in a glass bottle without a pump.

Not suitable for those dry skin days though.

After trying hundreds of different foundations (hundreds might be an exaggeration but I've tried a lot!) this is the only foundation that I have absolutely no complaints about!

My colour is cool bone 66 and suits my skin perfectly. I apply with a MAC stippling brush and love how easy it is to blend. It covers all of my blemishes from small acne scarring and marks around my chin to pimples and dark circles under my eyes. It is easily to build on so you can wear it light coverage or heavier. After setting with an Australis powder and NYX setting spray i don't need to touch up my makeup for about 6-7 hours. I have been wearing this foundation nearly every day for about a year so have gone through 3-4 bottles but if you don't wear foundation every day their 30ml bottle will last you much longer.
This foundation does exactly everything it claims it does:
15-hour staying power: tick!
Flawless all day: tick!
Stays fresh and looks natural through heat, humidity, nonstop activity: tick!
Won't change colour, smudge or come off on clothes: tick!
Feels lightweight and comfortable: tick!

I don't think ill bother purchasing any other foundation from now on because this is the only one my skin agrees with 100%. Im a uni student so have had to cut down on some luxuries but this won't be one of them, It is a bit more expensive ($50 for 30ml) but is worth every cent when it works as well as it does.

I think "Double Wear" is a quit good liquid foundation. Is very "stabilization" makeup stay on face 8 hours.

I have combination/oily acne prone skin!
I've used double wear for over a year, but i'm finding it very very drying and aging on my skin.
This foundation is absolute bomb proof, if you have perfect skin or just oily skin and want a foundation that stays on no matter what you do, this foundation is for you!
I've been to the gym wearing it, and i look no different leaving than i did going in, and i work my ass off!
This foundation is great for oil control i could go probably 8-10 hours without having to top it up with powder etc! And man i do have oily skin!
However as i said i found it incredibly drying and aging,(even though my skin is oily) this is not for people with dry skin, it goes patchy and sticks to the dry patches)
All of the time i wore this i never used a concealer because it is FULL coverage and i do suffer from regular acne!
If you have large pores this foundation may not be the best as it does highlight them completely, this is probably my biggest fault with this product (but this is something i found with most matt foundations)

I would completely reccommend this product to people with normal skin/ oily skin that want a bomb proof, full coverage foundation! It looks amazing on pictures and i am still going to keep a bottle in for nights out when i'm smothered in tan and will only have/use it on as a one off!

Brilliant foundation, just not for me!

I really thought that this foundation might have been Holy Grail material after reading/watching many reviews, but i'm very disappointed.

I don't have perfect skin, but the problem areas are pretty minor and usually are virtually un noticable with a decent foundation, this foundation made my skin look worse if anything. I find it made my skin look dull and masked - despite applying a small amount- and the the shades I tried, all FOUR of them, all looked awful, chalky and un-natural.

The only this I noticed about this product that was positive is that is does seem to control oil quite well, however this is not enough of a plus for the other aspects of it's appearance and the expense.

If you want a nice foundation that does not cake, look chalky and provides a natural looking coverage I recommend MUFE HD foundation, which has lower rating on MUA but proved far superior in my experience.
