This used to be my holy grail foundation, good coverage but light enough to not feel heavy or cakey. The new formula seems fine but every time I use it I break out horribly which never happened with the old formula. Will no longer buy because of this.

I wore double wear light for a good 5 years. It was perfect for my troublesome, acne prone but dry skin. I could wear it to my corporate job, weddings and special occasions as well as coffee on Saturday morning with my girlfriends without looking too made up. It was the perfect all-occasion foundation. I also loved that I didn’t need to think too much about makeup- most days I’d just put it on …Read more

This is, by far, the worst foundation I have ever used in my entire life. I have had to buy super cheap foundation at some points, and it is of better quality than this not-so-cheap garbage. You can squeeze the tube sometimes and all that comes out is oil. No foundation. For over $40, I expect a hell of a lot better. Estée Lauder is becoming such a colossal joke. Application is also splotchy and …Read more

I used to love the double wear light and have been wearing it for the past 5 years. Since they reformulated it, it's now completely horrible. I have acne-prone, oily skin and it comes apart on my face, looking splotchy and "piling". When I try to fix it with my fingers or a sponge, god my face looks terrible.

Looks like I need a new foundation. What a letdown.

I tried DL Light a few years back and it was very drying and chalky, with only a few shades available. I bought the reformulated version, and this stuff kicks butt! It goes on sheer, buildable to light-medium at best, which is precisely the kind of coverage I'm looking for. It does live up to its name of "soft matte," as it gives a satin finish with a slight glow that …Read more

I took the time to register just so I could write a review on this makeup. I have used double Wear light for many years probably close to 12 maybe 13 and have loved it. the change in shades has been very disappointing. I have tried twice to find the shade that I used to use but tries have turned out bad. Going to have to move on to some other brand. also you are getting a little too pricey it …Read more

I got this as a foundation for Australian summers. It has been great and provides natural coverage. I have sensitive dehydrated skin and this has not caused me any irritation, dryness or breakouts. It also does not cling to any dry patches. I make sure to moisturise before I use, and also apply the urban decay optical illusion primer.
It has fantastic staying power, and doesn’t slip and …

For the price of this foundation, I was slightly disappointed. The lightest shade did not suit my very pale skin and made me look orange and a bit tacky. The formula itself is nicely moisturising and glides on well, but I find that after a few hours it settles and clings onto dry patches, and this isn't very flattering. However, it does last a long time on the face and feels nice and light …Read more

I LOVE this foundation!
All the years I have worn foundation I have been pleading with the gods to stop it cracking/slipping/going porous on my face and I have finally been sent a holy grail.

I prefer a lighter/medium coverage and this foundation delivers. It. Stays. On. ????????????

If you are not a fan of seeing your skin (no make up make up looks) then this probably …

it kind of broke up on my face by the end of the day. i have normal to dry skin. since the double wear original is medium coverage i would just get that instead and use a thin layer. i got the shade 1.0 and im ecru in the original dw. i dont think theres a great winter shade for me since 0.5 is warm toned and 1.0 is neutral but not that fair.
