I am so disappointed by this compact foundation.I bought it with high hopes. I usually wear liquid foundation but i thought powder might be a nice change, it is easier and faster to apply and i can easily fit the compact in my bag for touch ups. It looks decent when applied, nothing spectacular. medium coverage, a ,little powdery and chalky especially when applied with a brush. What disappoints …Read more

This product contains TALC and Bismuth. I loved the coverage it looked great but after a week I broke out in cystic acne. It ruined my face! It took me 6 months to clear my acne and left me really bad scars. BAD BAD makeup

I was into powder foundations before my skin became a little problematic. I turned to Estee Lauder because I found that the Clinique Perfectly Compact Foundation was too orange for my skin tone.
With this powder, I found the perfect match (2W1 Sand). I love the packaging -- the blue and gold is so classy. The coverage was decent and I loved the ample compact, kinda dome shaped. My only …

I've been using this for a few weeks, and like it quite a lot.
The GOOD:
This has a nice texture, and the colour is an excellent match for my skin. It works well applied with the sponge for midday touch ups and wears really well - I don't get super greasy, it just seems to kinda melt into my skin in a good way.
The BAD:
Super expensive. The packaging is way too big …

I originally bought this to go over the top of my Double Wear liquid, but I find it's much better on it's own - over the top of the liquid it makes my face feel cakey and dry. On it's own, it applies smoothly and leaves a matte finish. The coverage is medium but buildable and blends fairly well. It gives me a soft, smooth look which I love! It doesn't break me out and is …Read more

Estee lauder double wear compact powder was quiet a disappointment for me as within three hours of wearing my skin will began to "oil up". It comes in a simple oval compact with a mirror inside its very cute and it does not look cheap, however the product is as good as some drugstore brands. I have tried the liquid foundation and it stay matte all day and my skin does not oil p so i …Read more

Really wanted to like this b/c of all the good reviews here but this did not live up to expectations. Although it's named as a foundation powder, the coverage is too light and the product fades after a few hours. Would be good as an overall face powder but there are less expensive versions out there that do the same job in terms of oil control. Returned it next day.

i love most of estee lauder's products. & this powder is definitely one of them. You are able to build with this powder. i have normal skin and for the most part it lasts for most of the day for me, i may have to touch up once, but with the nice packaging, thats not a problem. i can just throw it in my makeup bag for touchups throughout my day without worrying about it breaking. i like …Read more

Great for quick light coverage with a powder brush. Too heavy over foundation. Not so good over sticky skin or hot face( georgia summers gives your face this issue) Doesn't control shine much...but somehow it stays on well if the temp. doesnt go over 90 degrees, and looks better than naked skin.(unless you are blessed with pretty skin) my skin has large pores and tends to be oily and dry …Read more

So far one of the best pressed powders I've used. I use this over foundation to set it and give extra coverage, or alone when I just want enough coverage to hide redness and uneven skin tone without looking like I'm wearing a mask. It's very natural looking and stays put, which is important to me since I hate when I just lightly rub my face and a huge glob of makeup comes off. The …Read more
