EL Double Wear Stay in Place Powder Makeup is probably the least favorite powder foundation I have tried.

It transfers onto everything. I really dislike that my makeup rubs off on clothing - I can't remember the last time I used a foundation that actually did this, hugging someone shouldn't result in apologizing immediately after for the makeup residue:(

I thought …

I wanted to try a new powder foundation, so I thought I'd give Estee Lauder a try. I wanted to get the Double Matte powder, because it is for oily skin which I have. The sales girl told me that it is being discontinued, and was going to recommend Lucidity pressed powder (which I believe does not have much coverage). I wanted a foundation, so I bought this one. The coverage is pretty good and …Read more

This is the worst makeup product I have used in all my life. Its coverage is no good and it makes a dull look on face, nothing natural. I had high hopes from this powder cause as having a name of double wear I expected a high coverage. When they had applied on my face in the counter I thought it looked natural, but no. The worst is after I used for several times only, it become sth like …Read more

this is the best foundation powder i've ever used!!! i actually 'borrowed' my mums cos we're the same shade, but instantly fell in love with it because of the flawless finish it gives me! I love how it last pretty much all day too! I have this in tawny and its almost the perfect shade for my skin, depending on whether i've got a tan or not. I love the coverage it gives …Read more

Before trying Double Wear, I used MAC Studio Fix. I found the perfect color in Linen, but recently discovered that I can also pull off Sand (particularly in warmer months). I always apply Double Wear with a soft brush & am done in just a few minutes.

While the powder itself is more 'stiff' than Studio fix, it seems I use less of it to cover my entire face. The …

I have this product in Desert Beige and I love the colour match.
The powder goes on smoothly and gives nice sheer cover. My only issue is the longevity. After a 3-4 hours I need to re-apply.
I don't think I would re purchase, purely based on the $ vs longevity. I would however, be keen to sample the liquid version.

This is an amazing product, I can't believe it just take me a minute to have this incredible coverage, the only bad thing is that my face gets oily after 2-3 hours wearing it, so I only use it when I'm in a hurry or I'm going to wear make for less than 4-5 hours

i have to say, my search for a powder foundation has finally come to an end. 1naturalbeauty has found her Holy Grail powder foundation. I have moderate oily skin, but i also need something fragrance free. I normally wear the double matte liquid and my local counter was out of the matching powder so i decided to get matched to the DW powder instead.<br>

this makeup comes in a …

I am so excited! I just bought this about 2 hours ago and I love it!!! I already have the doublewear liquid foundation which I love too. I have both in Ecru, I have fair but mega oily skin. This is really fine and goes on really nicely. I have big pores and this covers them for me. I pick my spots, I know I shouldn't but I do. Some powders can cake around them and this doesn't. It …Read more

I am disappointed with this powder. I have heard so many great things about the Double Wear liquid and powder foundation that I got to try them both. The powder goes on smoothly. It doesn't settle in lines and pores but it doesn't hide your pores either. It has medium coverage and is slightly buildable. It is definitely not full coverage though. It is marketed as stay in place and …Read more
