Had this foundation put on by a MA last week for some pics for work. I usually hate long wearing foundations since they usually look flat, like a mask, and don't meld into the skin. After applying my gel moisturizer ( w/ a more appropriate SPF) he blended the foundation and a small bit of my moisturizer on the back of his hand. He them stippled it on w/ a brush and then went over it w/ a damp sponge and "pushed " it into my face. It felt really light and the color (3) was perfect on my NC 30 skin. Looks very yellow at first but it quickly morphs into a realistic tone. This foundation was so good that he skipped concealer. This foundation photographed beautifully-- didn't look flat or shiny. It wore for the next 18 hrs.-- I had to go back to work & was on call that night. He gave me the tube to take home and I've been using for weekends & going out. I like a more natural look for day time. I am rating it a 4 because it only has an SPF of 10-- if EL is going to bother w/ sunscreen it should be at least an SPF of 15. I just used my normal sunscreen underneath. Like the squeeze tube-- easy to control. I hate jars/ bottles w/o pumps due to higher bacterial growth.

I love this foundation. My baby sister had recommeded this line to me, after informing me that the Mary Kay foundation was too orange on me and after looking through photos she was right. So I went to Macy's and got a makeover did not purchase it on the spot, went home looked in the mirror and I did not look myself, I was so beautiful. I was sold! My nephew came over and was so surprised and said I looked ten years younger and advised me not to change foundation, I knew he knew best because he have seen me age over the past 19 years wearing bad foundations. This foundation does have the perfect yellow tone to it, I love how it stays in place during a hot humid day, has amazing staying power. I just love the coverage. I purchase the Bronze goddess and it's so sweet together. I do set this foundation with mac fix + on occasions. Works good with mac brushes 187 and 190....I will never again try to upgrade to Bobbi Brown foundation or no others again ....a total disaster...I can only...only wear Estee Lauder Foundations, I learned the hard way.

I have a hard time with foundations but I love this one. I like a heavier, matte coverage w/o it being cakey and this does the trick....leaves a luminous finish that is just perfect. I use the Intensity 3 and find that the hint of yellow undertone works for me. It goes on very smoothly. I gave it a 5 for being expensive, but I do that with all high end makeup because I think most of it is ridiculously priced. :)

Ok, here is my story. I am forever on a hunt for the perfect makeup, foundation, powder, eyeliner, mascara, etc. I have tried everything under the sun, every brand, and OMG!! I found it! I finally found a foundation that says what it does, i was using BE mineral makeup, i have very oily skin, i turn shiny after 2 hours, so went to BE matte, that didn't help, i tried MAC, it gave me the coverage, but it didn't stay on my face, after a few hours when i am shiny, i use the blotting paper, the oil came off, so is the foundation. I get on Makeup Alley, saw the good review about double wear, so i tried it, I got the regular double wear, it worked well, only that coverage was so thick, it looked like a mortician got a hold of me, so i went back to return it, and told the nice lady that it was too heavy for me, she asked me if I tried the double wear light, so she match me with the color, and i also bought the double wear matte press powder, it works awesome!!!
i don't get shiny until 3 in the afternoon, and only very little oil too, and when i blot it, nothing comes off, i just put a little more powder, and i look flawless!!
i love this makeup, if you have oily skin like i do, please try this, you won't regret it!!

I have come to appreciate this foundation overtime - it lasts ALL day without any touch ups and it helps to control oil very very well. i have oily skin but this helps to control sebum secretion and it makes me feel more comfortable! coverage is not very thick. i used to dislike this because it made my skin sticky, but that has been easily solved with the use of a loose powder (from bare minerals, which i highly recommend too!).

Very suitable for oily skin girls!

OMG this is my HG!! Nothing could pull me away from my beloved Revlon Colourstay untill I had a major breakout! I was like what am I supposed to do now? So dug around in my makeup draw and found a tiny sample bottle of ELDWL that I got ages ago in the colour 2.
This applys like a dream, its magical! I love using my fingers with this because it blends silk, melting into my skin. The coverage is superb medium to full. It feels like moisturser. It doesnt set matte so once you apply powder bam! Its matt. The staying power is amazing, I blot once a day no more, and I used to blot 3-4 times! I set this with Mac Prep+Prime and it does not budge. I am inlove with this it is the best foundation ever! It photographs beautifully and makes my skin look incredibly smooth! Two of my friends are now using this too.

Good coverage----not too heavy; it seems to go on better when I use my hands. My foundation brush made it very streaky; the stippling brush was slightly better but was time-consuming. It seems to stay put, which is quite an accomplishment with my skin and given our climate.

I think I've found one that's worth the money. I've tried just about all foundations on the market. I have dry skin in the winter and combination skin the rest of the year, but most foundations seem to make me go oily or dry up like chalk. I have the original in Fresco and a sample of Double Wear Light #2, and it matches really good. At first I thought the coverage was rubbish or I'd need a lot of product, but no. A little goes a very long way. I have some things to cover like redness and spot acne from time to time. Other than this I've been using MUFE HD and Revlon Colorstay. This has a beautiful and natural finish, but it covers and lasts all day. It's worth saving up to buy or keeping it in your collection. There are only six shade options, but #2 works for me. I don't know how they did it, but it matches a range of skin tones.

My favorite foundation of ALL TIME!!!!

I do own a good bit of base makeups because I like to have a variety of coverages, colors, and staying powers.

- Good coverage
- Stays on skin
- Great price for quality


- None

I got a very generous sample of this foundation in intensity 1 and intensity 1. I am am an nw20 in mac, and I find that because of the sheerness of the foundation I can get away with wearing both. Although this foundation is sheer it is buildable and will create a very even base for me( although I still need concealer for my acne) . The only reason I would not purchase this foundation is because for a light coverage foundation I feel that macs face and body is much better. The double wear light can look almost powdery on the skin while the mac is virtually undectable.
