always wear double wear!
This is my holy grail foundation! After years of searching to find that one foundation that could withstand my oily face and give me all day coverage, I finally threw away my old Clinique and become part of the Estee Lauder fandom. They have a wide range of colours from the ghostly pale (me) to darker toned women. The texture of this foundation is rather light compared to what i was expecting from a full coverage foundation, without giving a heavy appearance. It could be worn without any powder as it appears matte when applied. For a night out or a long summers day this foundation is perfect as it does not sink into your pores, nor does it fade, it stays as nice as it did when first applied, it is a very good investment!
This was the first high end foundation I've ever bought and I will carry on buying it! From my school days my major dilemma where make up is concerned is that half way through school I'd look in the mirror and patches of skin would be darker than the rest, spots and. blemishes that were completely covered in the morning were now visible again! This foundation goes on like paint without feeling too heavy it remains flawless all day I've gone to bed woke up the next morning and it's still in half decent condition I love this so much! The only reason I'm giving 4 and a half is that the bottle is about the size of your little finger and costs nearly ?30
I have used this product for years on and off I aways have to have it in my makeup bag.very much an essential. Have to make sure to moisturizer before using. For the not so made up days maybeto mix with a bit of moistuizer. Sometime can give the cakey look look if not careful. Also recommend the under eye conceler.
I love this foundation! Such great coverage, so flawless! Stays on all day and doesn't feel cakey at all! hasn't broken my acne prone skin out and controls my oily skin! Make sure to get a few samples of different shades as it oxidizes slightly with my oily skin, lasts forever and well worth the money!!
Long Lasting, Wonderful Coverage!
I've heard so many good reviews about this product and am glad I finally took the plunge and tried it out. I've got combo/oily skin which is prone to break outs but my skin has taken very well to this foundation. It covers my acne scars and evens my skin tone perfectly, giving an amazing finish. While I used to end up in an oily mess after a few hours, this foundation stays put throughout the day! ( I've tried it recently for 12 hours and it didn't budge! ) And I live in Asia where the humidity is crazy, but it's held up so well. With a good primer, setting powder and MACs Fix +, it leaves a flawless finish. :)
The only cons is that it is difficult to blend. I do recommend applying it on sections of the face, blending and then moving on to another section. I apply it with a damp beauty blender which works really great. It is also a tad expensive but really well worth it.
I cannot rave enough about it. If you have difficulty keeping your make up in place throughout the day, this is definitely recommended! The shade selection is good as well! Try out a sample and be amazed. :)
The second best stay on all day foundation I've ever used. It is light weight and comes in all shades. I highly recommend it. Flawless coverage and does NOT break out my skin at all. Fragrance-free.. excellent if you have sensitive skin.
Amazing coverage, matte finished but somehow it made me break out. probably i wont use it too often. kinda expensive for a small bottle tho, but i only need a little amount to the job. it worth since the coverage is SUPER and stay for a long time! it does covered my acne scar and pimples, no need to use concealer anymore. i wish they have pump, a little inconvenient to use
I spent many years looking for a foundation that gives a great medium coverage - but with an extra layer over blemishes - covers them. Double Wear is PERFECT for this!
I do have oily skin, and found most foundations disappeared mid day due to this. But Double Wear controls oil perfectly and does last all day!
Love it! xo
Nice but not on my HG List
My skin type is combination oily. There are many people who recommended this product especially for combination to oily skin.
In my opinion, this foundation is pretty hard to blend. It dries very quickly and hard to blend. So, usually, I warm up the product on the back of my hand, dot it on my skin, and blend it using my foundation brush (which is Shiseido Foundation Brush), per section. Once it sets, it will be very hard to blend it again or do something about it.
Oh, under the foundation, I'm using EL Primer, Matte something?
The coverage is medium. This foundation enhance pores and dry patch (if u zoom in ur skin), but without zooming it, nothing looks weird or gross.
This foundation contains SPF, so it will looks somehow white and a little pale on the photos, but I kinda like it sometimes if I combine it with my red colored lipstick.
After 3-4 hours wearing it, I still can see oil and shine on my T-zone. So, I don't know...if it'll be good for a very oily skin. I will not recommend this for dry skin though, probably for normal skin, it will be great.
I want to love this one too...I've already use about an half bottle, so definitely, sometimes, there is something that makes me come back to this foundation.
It's a pretty cheap foundation for an EL product.
Buscando un maquillaje del color más parecido a mi rostro y cuello y que cubriera mucho encontré el Double Wear de Estée Lauder. ME ENCANTA. Cubre todas las imperfecciones y tiene un acabado mate. Nada de brillos. No reseca la piel, ni la vuelve grasa.
Las pegas que le pongo son:
- Hay que aplicarlo más rápido, pues la piel lo absorve pronto y se hace imposible extenderlo.
- El bote no tiene aplicador, por lo que hay que tener cuidado con la cantidad que cogemos.
- El precio está en unos 40€. No es un maquillaje para diario para la mayoría.
- Hay gran variedad de colores.
- Cobertura alta.
- Larga duración.
- Resistente al agua y a los roces.
