I just got a sample of this over the weekend. I had purchased the Resilience lift over Christmas and loved it but my oily skin did not :( I previously have used Revlon Color Stay for years but was originally looking for something that would be good for my skin as I am getting older (35) and like taking good care of my skin. So the girl recommended Resilieance Lift. I love the color 1N1 Nude, love how it goes on, love how it looks- for about an hour. Then it gets way too oily, it pools into my pores, and it comes off and looks pretty rough by mid day. So I went to the Estee Lauder store looking for something different and tried the Double Wear. She gave me a sample of Ecru which when I used it all over looks way to yellow on me. But...this foundation is really nice. I think it has better staying power than Colorstay, looks flawless, is thinner than Colorstay and applies over my skin better. I always had to mix Colorstay with moisturizer to thin it a bit and get it to apply better. Double Wear has a very thin consistency, making it easier to apply. So I went and ordered a bottle, however, decided to order it in shell which I pray matches me better than the Ecru. I juts hope it doesn't make me too pale or I may just have to mix my sample of Ecru into it. I am quite pleased with this foundation. I could literally go all day if I wanted and not HAVE to touch up with powder but I generally do so I have a nice matte look all day. But I can go 6 hours easily before doing so and when I do, I get minimal oil on my blotting paper and apply a smidge of MAC's Blot powder. Very happy and will be sticking with this one!

I think this is a beautiful foundation and I really want to make this MY foundation. It looks beautiful in the morning, applies very nicely and evenly, gives good coverage. I am not afraid of makeup and like my skin to look flawless and this does it. However, I do have oily skin and that is a problem. I decided to recently purchase the lucidity translucent powder to replace my Loreal and that HAS helped. It doesn't shine through the makeup nearly as quickly and my makeup moves around less and fades less. But I still can see where it tends to gravitate around my face to my pores as the day goes on and loses the flawless look. So I am not sure what to do. The color is also perfect for me too. I am planning to go to the Estee Lauder store this weekend and see if I can't get a sample of the double matte and double stay foundations and give them both a try and see if I like them better. If not, then I think I will stick with this one as I know it is definitely moisturizing for my face which is important at 35 living in the desert.
