I wanted a powder than would hold my foundation in place and make my skin more matte.
I have the shade "translucent" but it does have a colour, quite an orange colour for those with pale skin. The powder cakes, you can very clearly see it on the skin, it settles in laugh lines, under your eyes and gets caught on the tiny peach fuzz hairs everyone has, making you look …

I love love love this foundation powder! Estee Lauder's entire DW line is AHHHMAZING !! This powder stays in place pretty much all day and smooths the look of lines, blemishes and pores. It's perfect to wear alone or over BB, CC cream OR a primer! It's also great to wear over liquid foundation for a fuller coverage! The only problem I have with it is that even a touch too much can …Read more

I really like how the powder goes onto my skin; it's velvety and smooth and gives my face a more flawless appearance. However, I think the only reason why the powder application works so well for me is because I'm younger; I can see this powder being an issue for more mature skin. I broke out a little this past weekend and the powder just accentuated the problem, regardless of the …Read more

I love this pressed powder. I have used other high end pressed powders as chanel mat lumiere and the finish is not the same. I used it over my moisturizer and I got medium cover velvet finish. A lot of people have told how good I look since I started using this product. Definitely I would buy again.

I have been using the double wear foundation in honey bronze (I am a mac nc40)for a while. I was using clinique perfectly real in 134 but I did not like it. So I wanted to try this powder. I got it in shade Cashew. I like the combo it gives my skin a flawless look. However there is nothing special about this powder. I cannot wear it on its own, it doesn't cover much. This powder is more for …Read more

I've been using this powder as a foundation for about a week now. I switched from Clinique Perfectly Real because I just wanted something more matte. EL looks really nice on my skin, and natural. This powder does get oily on me after a few hours, but I don't mind having to blot. It keeps my skin pretty matte and smooth, and for a decent amount of time. It even looks great after a touch …Read more

I bought this as an alternative to Jane-Iredale Pure Pressed Base and I like it just as much. The colour (2N2 Fresco) is perfect for me and it goes on very smoothly. I use it over a moisturiser and OC8 gel - applying with a brush. The coverage is buildable and I also use it with a small brush as a corrector to cover acne marks/spots etc.

My only issue is the lack of oil-control but …

SO.. I have been looking high and low for a new powder foundation to replace my MAC studio fix plus foundation. MAC breaks me out BADLY, especially around that time of month, leaving me with an oily face full of white/black heads and some cysts.
I have been looking everywhere for a powder foundation with coverage as good as MAC and Estee Lauder's double stay is just that. Not only does …

I thought buying ELDW would be a great way to touch up my ELDW liquid foundation. Liquid is not lasting on me all day. I needed something to touch up my nose, chin and forehead on those super greasy days (PMS). And I was hoping this would be the solution.

Disappointed is the key word. It is not working for me. I even tried using wet. It might be perfect for the young girl who has …

I am acne prone and oily so this product does stay in place all day for the most part i would never wear this as a whole face foundation but i do use it on more stubborn parts of my face as a concealer and i am fond of its coverage and overall day wear.
