I have been using this foundation since it came out. It is total HG for me. After years of trying to find the perfect foundation for my face, this one was it. I have never looked back. It stays on all day yet feels light on my face. I love that it comes in a squeeze tube. Price is not bad when you consider the tube lasts for a long time.

This is between a full coverage foundation and a tinted moisturizer.

This is great for those who want that in between coverage. I love this that it has a more dewy finish when I mix it with the spot light lotion. Or if I really want to sheer it out if I don't really need any coverage that day

It is great for oily skin girls and it looks very natural. I love this for everyday

This is the perfect foundation for my combination skin when it isn't too hot. It gives my skin medium coverage- with the illusion of an even tone and reduces the appearance or redness where I have it but still looks very natural. Helps to a decent extent to reduce my oilyness, although I still blot a couple times a day. I'm around an NC35 and use shade 3- perfect for my yellow toned skin. I love that is comes in a squeeze tube to reduce wastage. I apply with a damp sponge or with a traditional foundation brush which both work well. Unfortunately the shade range is limited so I am always excited for the time of the year that my skin it the correct colour so that I can use this foundation- when I am not matched to this foundation I like the Revlon colorstay active or colorstay (regular) for oily/combination.

After experiencing drastic skin changes from age 45 to 48 (much drier-never though I'd see the day since I have been oily/combo all my life) I needed a foundation overhaul. First I visited Lancôme, where the SA put me in the Renergie Lifting foundation. It looked too heavy and mask like for me. But I never tried mixing it with moisturizer or applying it with a damp sponge, I just used a stippling brush. The color match was great but I found it oxidized on me even with a primer underneath. And boy was I "glowing" by the end of the day-bordering on greasy looking.
One of my friends suggested Double Wear Light. She uses it and gets through the whole day with a nice matte/satin finish to her skin. I was matched to Intensity 2. For the first time ever, probably, my face, neck and chest look like they belong on the same body and not three different skin colors. I was skeptical of the narrow range of shades, but DWL made a believer out of me.
Besides the long wear with no oily, oxidized finish, the thing I like most is that you can still see your skin under the foundation. It doesn't hide freckles or moles, but that's ok because I look like a real person wearing it instead of a mannequin.
Thank you, Estée Lauder, for realizing not all women with mature skin want to be overly "dewy." I will definitely repurchase DWL.

I bought this in a set so I think the price is really reasonable. The shade I got was dead on and I love that the foundation controls shine for quite a while. You can easily top this with a finishing powder to make it last longer. I notice that my blush on lasts longer too when I wear it on top of this foundation. I only wear foundation on special occassion so that's why I wont be repurchasing, cause it would take a while to finish this product, and I think imma try to purchase the original double wear instead.

This foundation has been my go to foundation over the past couple of years. The texture is extremely light i found it blends extremely well ino the skin obviously providing you get the right colour. If you are a fan of estee lauder products and are looking for a foundation then this is definitly one for you to try! i found it better than the originaly double wear foundation (the one in the bottle as i find that one way too thick for my skin).

I have combinations skin and like other reviewers i found this to make you oily within a couple of hours and i am one of these people who hate touching up mt foundation when im out and about at college. I really do love this foundation and has been my fav foundation on and off over the last couple and i have used it on and off but at the moment i am wanting to try other foundations as i do like this but i dont love it as i have been breaking out recently and find the coverage too light.

PROS
-extremly light
-blends into skin
-lovely texture
-lasts for ages
-great packaging

CONS
-can make yo oily within a few hours
-expensive

Terrible foundation. I have combination skin and this turned me into an oil-slick within hours. I even tried it over an effective oil-controlling primer and finished with Ben Nye's Neutral Set. I'm not exaggerating when I say they made no difference at all. This makeup simply contains too much oil. The original DW is amazing but this one is surprisingly awful.

After hearing such great reviews on the DW light I went and got a sample to give it a try.
It kept my face matte and stayed on all day but after just a day of wearing it my face broke out so bad. I used it till my sample was gone thinking I had to give it a chance and let my skin get used to it but didn't work. More pimples erupted upon my face with each passing day. I went back to Revlon color stay and in 2 days my skin started to clear up! So this foundation is a Huge No for me. Good thing I only got a sample!

It offers medium coverage and once it sets it does not budge. Unlike Revlons Colorstay you have time to work with the product before it sets. I like to apply this with my fingers. The finish is pretty matte and I do not need to set it with powder. The only reason I gave this 4 lippies is because it tends to dry my skin out as the day goes but I can see someone with an oilier skin liking this. For myself I find this works better for me in the summer. For reference I am NC37 and I wear this in Intensity 3.

For the past few months I have been searching for the perfect foundation that fits me. I wanted a foundation that has a light coverage and will last throughout my long workdays. After many brands, (drugstore and department store) and many allergic reactions and breakouts, I finally found this! I needed something light to even out my skin tone, (I rarely have acne) and this does that without making me look like I'm wearing makeup at all! I apply it with a foundation brush using a tiny pea size amount in sections because it dries fast and that's it! I thought it may irritate my dry skin because of its staying power but it hasn't at all, it actually makes my skin feel really hydrated, even in the dry winter weather. I took off one lippy because of the color selection. I'm using 1.0 now and it's a tiny bit light for my skin but the 2.0 was way too dark. 2.0 should work perfect for me in the summer. The packaging is very hygienic, just feel a pump would work better so you get the same amount each time you use it. I will definitely repurchase and continue to use this every day. It also makes my skin look flawless in pictures!
