Great coverage that's about it.
I love the full coverage but this foundation is just way to heavy on the face. Very thick and if your not careful after you have finished all your makeup application can look quite cakey. Not a fan.
Highly recommendGreta coverage amazing blend ability
Lovelythis is a fantastic foundation its great for oily skin but doesn't dry out too much
LovelyLove this foundation its so good and such a good coverage!
excellentperfect foundation and amazing coverage i love it so much you can wear it all day and it doesn't come off at all
thick but great coveragei have acne scars and rosacea . this is great at evening out my skin and making sure no redness peaks through. i do however, like to mix other foundations into this like KOH GEN DO aqua foundation because it can feel very thick and heavy. doesnt break me out which is a plus. has been my go to for years.
dry skin STAY AWAY. make sure you freshly exfoliate and moisturise before use
My favoriteThis is my special occasion foundation. It covers everything and lasts all day. Love love love
Cult faveThis is a cult favourite for a reason. Stands up well in hot humid climates. Wish it was a tad lighter/thinner. I mix 50/50 with another foundation to make my perfect base.
Holy grail foundationI have been using this foundation for over 2 years and I absolutely love it! I have oily skin and this baby has never let me down, I’ve worn it to work on 12+ hour days, it’s lasted through games of netball, any weather, any situation this foundation will last! It has a beautiful full coverage and is comfortable in the skin. It does not emphasise any fine lines or texture.
I recommend to anyone with oily skin who wants a full coverage, long lasting foundation
FantasticLove this product it’s really good and such a good coverage
AmazingThis full coverage foundation is perfect for day and night wear, stays on all night and doesn’t move or crack. Best foundation ever!
Long lastingI have used this foundation for years. Its the only thing that lasts on my oily skin and covers my scarring. It doesn't feel too heavy on the skin and blends nicely.
Great coverage that's about it.I love the full coverage but this foundation is just way to heavy on the face. Very thick and if your not careful after you have finished all your makeup application can look quite cakey. Not a fan.
Loved the formulaVery full coverage with a light feel. This is exactly what i have been looking for. Will keep buying it again and again
Best foundation!Best foundation for oily skin and lasts all day!
Thick and extremely full coverageI should say that I've ventured into using lighter coverage foundation over the past year, as I realised that I've started spending more on skincare and was fortunate enough to have clear skin. While I had the best skin in my entire life, I was wearing this foundation and other very full coverage foundations, and this amazing if you want a perfect, photoshopped base. But, I started getting more breakouts, which I hadn't experienced in years and went back to using this foundation, and found that my preference really changed as I started loving a natural, dewy finish, and found that this foundation is too full coverage and matte for my liking now. I also found that it can tend to look cakey quite easily if you aren't more careful and very light handed, but the positive is that it lasted a really long time. The shade range is also AMAZING, love that there aren't just warm and cool toned shades, but also olive toned shades, which are rarer to find as they just get labelled with warm or cool with other brands. I think if you prefer full coverage foundations and find it harder to find your shade, I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this foundation!
BEST FOUNDATION EVERI don't have a bad word to say.
Full coverage, very buildable, oil free, dries instantly, does not transfer and it lasts 24 HOURS!!! This foundation beats all others, I cannot find a dupe for it and nothing lasts the same on my face. This is the best thing since sliced bread.
One of the best foundations I’ve orderedAs a die hard Mac Studio Fix fan, I decided to take a risk and try this foundation. Boy am I glad that I did! Great coverage, stays all day and doesn’t sink in to any fine lines. I would strongly recommend for anyone who loves Macs Studio Fix but wants something that is a bit more durable during the day!
great for my redness. very thick thoughi do love this because i need it to cover my rosacea, its quite thick so it covers everything BUT you need to be extremely moisturised or itll show EVERYTHING.
does feel like your wearing makeup. i like to mix with KOH GEN DO aqua foundation to give it a little dewy life to it as it does tend to look flat since its so matte. i have oily acne prone skin
Good long-wearing foundationThe shade range in this foundation is excellent, with a good range of different undertones too. This does not budge - my skin is combination/ oily in the T zone. I like it, but do prefer sheerer coverage bases now. This is perfect for photography or if you want your makeup to last all night
Very thickI always use medium to full coverage foundation to cover my blemishes so this double wear is great for that. I wouldn't recommend for everyday use as it's very thick and cakey. Needs to be rubbed in a lot more than other foundations. Coverage is definitely great, I found it works best if you mix it with a lightweight foundation.
So goodthis product is amazing, just the right coverage and very light and nice on my skin.
Staying-powerAs long as I haven't layered skin care underneath, this foundation is sweat proof even in Australian summer which is why I keep returning to it. It doesn't achieve a natural look though.
Best full coverageAbsolutely love this foundation. Best full coverage on the market. Highly recommend if you need something that lasts.
Amazing!I purchased this foundation after finding my normal to dry skin was showing too many fine lines and using my usual mineral powder as I near 30. The reviews steered me towards double wear and I am blown away with its stay in place formula, it doesn't move and my fine lines are barely visible! I paired this with the double wear concealer.
Best foundation in the worldThis is the most coverage and the best $$$ for what you get. It is not recommended for dry skin however, i add moisturiser and primer and use it. It is full coverage and it doesn't go on peoples clothes when i hug them ! 100% recommend.
Needs pumpAbsolutely love this! I've tried many other foundations and none have compared to this! This manages to control oils (T Zone) while not drying out my dry areas (cheeks). By the end of the day, the finish is gently dewy but still looks put together. Wish it had a pump sold together
RecommendThis is my favourite foundation I’ve use it for so long now. It sets well on my skin And a little bit goes a long way. And it literally lasts all day without going patchy or gross! Always my fav
A go to daily foundation everyone needs!I am 19 years old with the occasional breakout here and there, but suffer most from pigmentation issues and scarring predominantly on my cheeks.
I have been using Double wear since I was 16 when I had super oily skin, and to now where I have combination skin, and over all these years the product remains flawless on my skin!
I can wear this product for hours (once more than 20 hours), and lets just say it looked as good after 20 hours as it did when I put it on!
This product whilst a little pricey, goes a very long way, not much is needed to provide a full face foundation which means the bottle lasts a long time for me.
This product can be easily built up in coverage an can be sheered out very easily if mixed with a moisturiser, making it a very versatile product.
This product also has a wide range of shades and under tones making it a good match for nearly all skin tones.
My only issue is regarding that when you purchase the foundation, it doesn't come with a pump which means that you either have to buy the pump for what i believe is $10ish or just pour it out which can get quite messy!
Overall, love this foundation and would highly recommend to anyone.
Best FoundationThis is by far the best foundation I have tried so far. I've been wearing it regularly for the past few years and I am constantly amazed at how long it lasts. I have very pale skin and wear the shade 1N1, but it doesn't make me look ghostly like many pale foundations do. It's definitely a full coverage foundation, however I've never found it to look unnatural or cakey and I get lots of compliments on how smooth and nice my skin looks whenever I wear it. Compared to other brands, it's actually extremely good value because I've tried brands that charge $80+ for foundation and they are nowhere near as good.
Number #1 foundation!I have been using this foundation for probably 5 or more years. I can't go past it. I've tried others but they just do not compare! I love how you can use just a tiny bit for a light coverage (yes ladies, save your money and stop purchasing sheer or BB cream) or use more and have full coverage!
I have normal-oily skin.
All time faveNo other foundation compares to this. I can apply at 6am and still look good at midnight!! It’s the only foundation for me that does what it says
Great foundationI always go between this foundation and Mac. It’s a great everyday wear and stays on all day. I’ve got dry skin but I don’t find this is over drying on my skin like some other foundations are.
Always come back to this foundationI have gone through several bottles of this. It's the longest lasting foundation on my oily skin that I've tried, without being drying. I still get oily very quickly, but I blot throughout the day and the foundation stays in place. The coverage is easily adjustable from sheer to full coverage, and looks beautiful on the skin. 1N2 Ecru balances out the redness in my quite fair skin. Never any issues with oxidation or colour change. Kudos to Estee Lauder for offering such a wide range of shades. I wish it would come with the pump.
Full coverageThis is a complete full coverage foundation it will cover everything and blends so so well. I would not use this on a daily basis as it can be a little heavy looking
BEST FOUNDATION IN THE WORLDI cannot recommend this enough. It is quite literally the best makeup product I have ever and will ever come across. I stopped using it for a few months because I couldn't afford it but the money is sooooo worth it. A little bit goes a long way and no foundation will ever ever ever beat it.
Amazing coverage & lasts foreverI love this product, great coverage and lasts all day.
The only downfall is the flashback.
AmazingThe only foundation I can wear. I’m extremely oily and somehow this foundation keeps my skin barley oily all day with a beautiful smooth finish
Love it!This is such a great foundation, i can't fault it. It's easy to apply, with a blender or your fingers, and once it sets it looks beautiful. It doesn't dry out my skin, and it doesn't look cakey either.
Everything i think i might try a new foundation just for the sake of it, this always pulls me back.
Thanks Estee Lauder - nailed it!
Long lasting and full coverageThis foundation changed my life! It’s full coverage, long lasting and leaves the perfect matte finish! Even after exercising or swimming it still stays in place. Would definitely recommend!
Gave me bumpsI'd had so many friends rave about this and went to get a tester, used for about a week and my jawline broke out in bumps and it felt really itchy, stopped using it and it went away. Works for some just not for me sadly!
Full CoverageIf you want full coverage then this is the foundation to buy. It is known for its full coverage and quality. I have been using this product for over 4 years.
Cannot faultThis stuff has been amazing and the only foundation I don’t have to mix colours to get my match. I’m oily combo skin and this stuffs bloody brilliant. Always looks flawless and always get compliments on my skin while wearing it
Broke me outNot my fave thing. I found my skin was really congested after using it!
GorgeousThis is a really gorgeous foundation (and I’ve tried a few). It doesn't clog up my pores and was able to cover my dark circles. Definitely recommend to anyone with dry/oily combination skin. It’s too heavy for me to wear everyday but for going out or special occasions it is really hard to beat.
Very heavyThis foundation is extremely heavy. It’s a foundation where you can clearly tell you’re wearing foundation. It dries into fine lines and makes lines appear where you didn’t even know you had them! I’m not a major fan of this, it makes my skin look older than what it actually is!
Best long wear foundationI’ve used this foundation daily for YEARS and LOVE LOVE LOVE it. I love the full coverage, the staying power and natural-looking yet matte finish. I recommend applying immediately after using a moisturiser and primer (I use NP Auto Pilot), which helps it blend evenly and set the best. I often receive compliments on my skin (which is not great!) while wearing it. I also have a habit of touching my face during the day, and find this foundation helps prevent smearing, slipping and transfer onto clothes etc (even after the gym!). I find an oil makeup remover/cleanser melts it away easily in the evening, and I follow with my usual face cleanser as I used to have acne prone skin.
Amazing full coverage!!My favourite foundation i love is how it is full coverage and how it smooths over any dryness around my nose, and its gorgeous finish. I also find that the longer I wear it, the better it looks! I didn't even think that was possible!
All time favourite foundationThis product is my favourite foundation. I've been using it for years. There is a colour to match me in winter and even in summer. Wears perfectly for a full day of work. Always get compliments on my skin and i know its due to this foundation.
long wearing, favourite foundationThis is my favourite foundation ever..! I have fairly normal skin with a slightly oily tzone. This foundation lasts all day without fail, it feels quite light on the face and doesn't slide or settle into creases. I do find it can become slightly streaky when applying with a stipple brush and doesn't spread as far, so I like to apply with a beauty blender. Very full coverage without being cakey.
I do think there is room for improvement on the packaging as there is more waste than I would like.
Great coverageLove this foundation, I've used it for years because of its amazing coverage and staying power.
They have a brilliant selection of shades that I go between during the different seasons.
Would recommend to anyone that like a full coverage foundation.
The best foundation hands downI'm yet to find a foundation as good as this. When a new and exciting product comes to market I will purchase to see how it compares, but am always let down and return to my Double Wear.
This lasts all day and night, doesn't move, no need to even set with a powder. Just put on and let dry.
Amazing coverage, that can also be buffed in for a more natural look.
For drier skins, it works well if you prep your face with a nice hydrating serum and nourishing moisturiser.
Best coverageLove love love this foundation! Got a sample from the store and now been using Estée Lauder for 2 years.
The coverage is amazing. It lets your skin breathe. I use a small amount for work and it looks good!
Full coverage foundationLove the coverage this foundation gives, lasts all day
Great productI have been using this for years! Long lasting and great for oily skin
Great for oily skinThis foundation stays in place all day on my oily skin
It works wellI have been using Napoleon Perdis foundation stick (look 4) for about 8 years now and have decided it's time to find a new foundation. Not only have I saved money by switching, this foundation works just as-well, actually a little better. It took me hours to colour match online but finally found my shade, so if you are also using Napoleon foundation stick and want to switch from a look 4, go for Toasty Toffee. This foundation does set a bit quick, but it sets to the point that it actually lasts all day on your face. It feels light and covers my acne scars, marks and deep pores. My skin is a combination of oily and dry and as long as you moisturise well this foundation will work smoothly onto the skin leaving you a flawless complexion. It will only look dry if you have dry patches, so best be making sure you moisturise to get the full benefit of this product. Will definitely be recommending this foundation to others.
I can see why people rave about it!As a penny pinching kind of person i could never understand why people would spend so much money on a foundation till now. I was lucky enough to have my skin matched at the beautyheaven party with this cool machine. The consultants take three readings on your forehead, cheek and neck to find your average shade to match your foundation. As an Asian I have a yellowy complexion and I find it a little hard to find the right shade as the choices I usually get are beige, beige and more beige but I was pleasantly surprised at how perfect the shade I got, dawn was for my skin. It's a full coverage foundation and a little will go a long way. No need to cake it on and it says stays in place it means it. This is the kind of foundation you need for those special all day affairs.
Wow!This is by far the most ‘full- coverage’ foundation I have used. You have to be careful though about how much you use. Too much can make you go from no-make makeup to too much makeup. If you know what I mean. A little goes a long way and goes on your face like butter. Beautiful to build up too. I love it to bits ❤️
Best foundationI have always come back to this foundation it covers all my blemishes and lasts all day!! I love the full coverage and use every day
Best foundation of all time!I have been through multiple bottles of this stuff because I can find no better.
its stays put, good coverage, color matched perfectly (ecru 1N2), plays nice with all types and brands of primer and makeup, Keeps looking reasonably fresh all day and night even after a sweaty HIIT sesh. Best applied with beauty blender for a seamless dewy finish
AmazingFirst the buyer of this product. I have used it once and it’s so lovely to wear. I have oily skin and with most make up I get very shiny, but not with this, the coverage is fanatic.
LoveLove Estee Lauder Double wear foundation. Have used it for many years, it's full coverage and makes my skin look beautiful. Comes off easily enough at end of day. Doesn't separate during the day, looks absolutely flawless until I go to remove it.
Full coverage, durable foundation that provides longevity and flawless skinI have combination skin (mainly oily but can get dry) and I find this foundation is the best I have ever used. I have been using double wear consistently for over 5 years now and no other product compares. The foundation is full coverage and provides longevity like no other foundation I have ever used. I initially purchased double wear as I was seeking a durable full coverage foundation that would not rub away against my phone or as a result of perspiration throughout the long working day and this did not disappoint. The packaging is sleek, stylish and a bottle usually lasts 1.5-2 months with daily wear. You can also apply lightly for a lighter coverage or build for fulller coverage. I would absolutely recommend this to others. The only thing I would change is the twist lid as I prefer a pump or dropper lid.
Feels like nothing is on your faceI love this product so much, it’s very light weight and trust me when I say a little goes a LONG way! You’ll be on one bottle for ages. Must have.
Full coverageThis is my go to foundation for nights out and events because it is so full coverage and looks flawless on. I tend to stick to my Giorgio Armani silk foundation for day time because its a bit more lighter. This double wear I dont like as much in the day time because its heavier due to being full coverage.
Favourite foundationSo happy with this foundation! Covers perfectly and doesn’t crease. My favourite!
fantastic product ! great for oily skinlovley product and colour match. stays on all day. i have an oily nose, and i find it much better using this product than other foundations. can use extra makeup to cover as a concelor
LOCKED INThis foundation does not move! I have super oily skin so I love the matte finish. I wouldn't' recommend this to people with dry skin as it may dry out your skin even further. Will definitely repurchase!
This delivers!!Beautiful foundation. It does not move! You can definitely build it up for full coverage. Goes on easily, but you do need well moisturised, primed skin. I ordered online and used the colour match for previous foundations and it's my perfect shade.
I have normal/dry skin with a little bit of redness. I definitely recommend especially against other, more expensive foundations. Love it!
Best foundation !Long lasting, light feeling, overall my favourite foundation!
Great foundationI have used Estée Lauder double wear in pure beige (for medium tone) for about 4 years now. It’s a heavier base which I find blends nicely with small amount product and a flat buffer, although it is a fuller coverage so I tend to use it more so in evening and not as an everyday. Matte finish
A keeper!I have struggled for years to find a foundation that covers my acne scars and doesn't irritate my skin and had almost given up. This is definitely a keeper. Build-able coverage and definitely lasts all day. I'm already on my second bottle.
Absolutely StunningIt is no wonder that so many brides will choose this foundation for their wedding day! This has a photo shop effect and will keep you looking flawless and beautiful all day.
AMAZINGGGGthis is now my go to foundation! I’ve gone through so many and have never found a foundation quite like this one. Leaves my skin looking silky smooth, and still looks fabulous after hours of being on my skin!
DOES NOT MOVE.This foundation literally DOES NOT MOVE.
I went to the gym and came out and still had a full face of makeup.
I do find it to be a bit too heavy for my liking and a bit cakey for the dry areas on my face.
Most likely wouldn't repurchase.
Outstanding coverageLasts all day and provides beautiful coverage.
Holy grailThe hype is real, I’ve been using this for a few years and have tried other foundations but nothing compares to this! The shade shell beige is the perfect match for when I have loving tan on it’s such a nice natural tan shade.
A favourite since foreverI have been using this foundation for years now after my favourite blogger was infatuated with it and although tempted to try something like Fenty or Too Faced, I always find myself restocking this faithful foundation. I have combination skin, with freckles and only a slight oil issue and this foundation is great when used along with a high end moisturiser or decent primer. I use the shade 2N1 to even out my complexion which is fair-ish - I don't tan but still I find it blending nicely down my neck without obvious colour difference. I team this foundation with shape tape concealer and loose setting powder for a comfortable everyday makeup look.
My go-to for the past 5 yearsNothing beats this foundation.
Sits on the skin beautifully, lasts all day and has amazing coverage.
BeautifulI have just changed to Double Wear after using Nars Sheerglow for about 5 years. I’m still getting the hang of it but it has a velvet finish, I don’t need powder with it and great colour selection.
One of my favsThis is a beautiful classic foundation that I always seem to eventually go back too!! My first favourite foundation as it gives a gorgeous natural finish. Very buildable coverage and lasts for hours! Love it !!
Not a fani was the shade porcelain and i found it very cakey and didn't like the way it sat on my skin, i have combination skin, however it was full coverage
Good coverageThis foundation provides good coverage, I keep coming back to it as it doesn’t crease or make my skin look too dry, it does need to be set down with a spray or a powder to make it last 12+ hours though or otherwise I find it breaks down and transfers during the day and also I find some other products don’t work well when using this foundation, overall it is good and a bottle lasts me a long time.
Perfect coverage, great staying foundation, especially for oily skinI absolutely love this foundation. I have oily combo skin & normally have issues with foundation moving, especially on my nose & t zone area. The double wear stays in place, gives a beautiful buildable full coverage finish, that doesnt look cakey.
I recommend you also purchase the pump applicator as well.
My go-to for yearsThis foundation covers acne, imperfections and discolouration very well without looking overly fake and cakey. Very impressive shade range with a wide variety of undertones. Doesn’t break apart, settle into pores or slide off, and I have difficult skin that ranges from very dry to very oily - so this is an achievement. But it’s true superpower is it lasts forever! I’ve worn this to music festivals and woken up the next morning with my foundation looking almost the same as when I put it on. I would say it’s medium-to-high coverage, so maybe it’s a bit too much for someone who likes natural everyday makeup.
One stop shop foundation it does it all !!I love this foundation, it has a fantastic shade range so I was able to get a perfect match. The formula is great, its not matte but not dewy so you get the best of both worlds and a great "skin like" finish. I also love that I can use this with my fingers and sheer it out as well as use a sponge and build it up for a full coverage look, the coverage is that good I find I don't use a concealer with this foundation either. You really don't need another foundation. I should also mention it lasts all day (12hrs plus in the QLD heat) and it doesn't ever look cakey !! If you haven't tried this yet you really need to !
MehGood coverage and I liked my shade but I broke out quite badly. It’s nice but not worth the bad skin!
A great coverage and long-lasting foundation.I love Estee Lauder and was excited to try this foundation. I found it very light and it just gently disappears into your skin and is very long wearing it lasts all day and is not a heavy foundation like other brands. Would def recommend.
Nice product but not great for dry skinI tried this instead of my usual Nars foundation and while I like the texture and colour, my skin felt very dry after I removed my makeup at night. I would recommend adding additional moisturiser or primer to your routine if you have dry skin.
Great !This foundation is amazing , gives good coverage with a beautiful finish . A must have foundation for anyone
So dryingI was really excited to get this, but when I started using it for the first time you have to work really fast with it other wise it just drys into place and doesn’t move which is great for once your makeups all done but when your trying to apply it, it was a bit stressful working really quickly just so I wouldn’t have odd marks over my face. It went super oily on face after a few hours which I’ve never experienced before with a foundation and got heaps of breakouts and millia from it.
Love itThis foundation is a gem . I have tried many other brands but this foundation looks so natural on my skin and the way it oxidizes makes u look flawless.
Nice FoundationAfter Make Up For Ever canned their Mat Velvet + Foundation, I was forced to find something else that would suit my skin after their new Mat foundation's lightest shade was too dark for me. I purchased Double Wear upon a recommendation from a friend whose foundation always looks great, and I'm glad I did. It applies smoothly and evenly, and you only need a little bit as it comes out quite watery. Rating 4 stars only because I feel like it needs to come in a pump bottle because unless you have a makeup spatula around, quite a bit gets wasted pouring it onto the back of your palm.
Love this full coverage makeupI have rosacea and sun damage. I love this foundation. Comfortably covers everything. I've tried others but keep coming back to this one as my favourite.
Go to FoundationDouble Wear is the only foundation that will last the whole day and night with no touch ups, No matter how long it has been on it always looks although I have just done my make-up. I have tried other foundations but none give the same coverage or last the same as double wear!
I've never looked back... but why the price increase?This foundation is incredible! I have NEVER looked back. Just a shame as it use to only be $50. Still, I would recommend.
10/10Amazing range of colours/shades, long lasting (even after swimming all day) easy to apply. I have recommended to many of my friends and everyone has loved this. My mum has been using this for years as well so its for all ages.
Works wonders for my oily skin!I’ve tried so many different foundations to suit my oily skin and this is by far the best! I keep coming back to it over and over again. Coverage is gorgeous and it holds all day.
BeautifulI’ve tried so many foundations and this one I keep buying again and again. It literally stays on all day and still looks great. Very easy to put on, leaves a flawless coverage.
Love itI started using this foundation because Bobbi Brown discontinued my favourite go-to foundation. This one is a close second to it though, and I'm very happy with it. It goes on nice, and leaves a nice finish. Lasts all day with significantly less transfer than other foundations I've used.
