Coverage and Finish
This foundation has pretty heavy coverage and most of the time one simple thin layer would suffice. It dries down to a matte finish pretty quickly after application and does not cake if you're not using too many layers.

Long-lasting
This lasts about 8 hours during a hot summer day without needing touchups. It is likely to "break" after over 10 …

24 hour wear (not that you ever should but I’ve slept in the club with this and it didn’t budge)
Becomes more natural looking with time or fix plus

Cons
Very thick/heavy
Doesn’t let skin breathe
Needs …

I wish I knew they reformulated the formula. I used to love this foundation 15 years ago. It was my favorite. Then I switched to different other foundations that looks more natural. A week ago I had a party and decided to buy this DW foundation again and I was very disappointed. It's not as pigmented as it was before, it breaks me out right away even if I use it only 1 day. I don't …Read more

Is a great foundation, but I can only use it from time to time (especially when I go to an event and I want to look flawless), otherwise will make my skin breakout. I have a very very sensitive skin and for day to day I like a more natural look.

This is my HG!!!. i'm using shade Tawny. I tried many other foundation from drugstore even from Highend Brand, but i was cameback to this foundation. This foundation is like perfect foundation, you can adjust how many layer you want to use like depand on the occasion. It does not cakey when you add more than one layer. Even, with one layer only this foundation already gives a medium …Read more

Wow can’t believe what they did to the formula. I had been a user for over 10 years until the past few years when so many different foundations started popping up and I decided to give double wear a break. Went back to it again and have bought 2 shades, none of which relate to the old shades! I’m sad that I didn’t bother trying them in person and just went and ordered them online, only to regret …Read more

I tried this a few years ago and wasn't impressed. I couldn't seem to find the right shade, I wanted to love it but it wasn't happening, so I went back to Revlon Colorstay and stuck with it. It's been my go to for decades, though I rarely get a full day out of it. I recently revisited ELDW and was not disappointed this time.

I finally found a shade that worked for …

Update: fake tanned I’m nc42 and 41w is a perfect match! I like to mix in a little drunk elephant bronzi serum since tan I don’t need as much coverage. It doesn’t affect longevity or transfer.

I can’t believe I’ve not reviewed this! I’m a little darker than nw20 light/medium cool (pink) I have 2 shades fresco and ivory rose. Fresco is 2c3 and ivory rose is 2c4, but fresco is slightly …

I wish I could give this five stars but unfortunately I will have to return my double wear :(. This is the best foundation I have ever used by far, but certain ingredients in the formula exacerbate my acne, meaning no matter how amazing it is I will still break out if I use it. However!!! For people who do not have sensitive skin, this will be your holy grail product. The buildable coverage …Read more

Truly very long lasting. If you spill some on the counter and it dries, good luck getting it off!
I have very dry skin. If you apply to dry skin, it'll look cakey. I put a greasy sunscreen under it and it comes out perfect.

It will hide a large freckle through 2 or 3 days, even when you shower every day.

This is a go-to. You can thin it out if needed, but if you …
