I've been on the hunt for the perfect foundation, and I think I've FINALLY found it! My skin gets oily around mid day and I always have to powder...but not anymore. I'm the very lightest shade, and it's a the best match I've ever had. I'm sad that they're discontinuing this product, so I bought a couple bottles while the price was so low. It's a matte finish and it really does last all day. I was surprised at the quality since it's a drugstore product. I recommend this!
My skin is oily, and I've been on the search for the "perfect" foundation. I've tried so many, and then one day, I came across the Double Wear. I figured I'd give it a try..since the lady at the counter was so helpful and convinced that 'I wouldn't be sorry'. Haha. So, I bought a bottle. My skin is really light, so I has I had a terrible time picking out a colour. I finally settled for Ecru. The coverage is awesome for those with really oily skin, or even combo. Out of all the foundations I've try, this one gave me the best coverage for my shiny skin. So, A+ in that area. The downfalls to this product are the poor colour range. Also, you really need to apply this in natural light. I remember putting it on in the bathroom and thinking, "damn I look fine today!" :P and then I went outside, looked in a car mirror and I looked like an oompa loompa. Yes. Orange! It was terribe. I figured maybe I just didn't match the shade correctly so I went back and they helped me pick out another colour. This time, I went with the Desert Beige one. I will admit, it was better than my first choice, but still could have been A LOT better.Pros = 1. Stands up to any weather condition. 2. Stays on all day. 3. Controls oil! 4. Nice matte finish. 5. Can be used with or without powder and still look good. Cons= 1. Poor colour selection.(If you're fair, you'll have a hard time.)2. Changes colour at the end of the day. (A tad more orange.)3. Doesn't blend especially well. (I recommend a foundation brush.)4. Looks a little cakey, almost mask like. 5. Crappy packaging...a pump would be nice. 6. A little pricey. Overall, this product is fairly good. If you have oily skin, I advise you give this product a whirl because it does what it says. If you have dry skin, this product may be too drying, but some of you maybe have luck with it. It's nearly 38$ for a little bottle, so that's a bummer. I'm not trying to run down this product because it is in fact good.I'm just giving you everything from my experience because I know how hard and frustrating it can when you're on the hunt for foundations. All the Estee Lauder counters I've been to say that if you're not 100% satisfied with your purchase you can exchange it or get a refund. So, that's a bonus. Double check on that one though! Haha. Good luck ladies! =)
