I absolutely love this foundation! It is a true medium+ coverage foundation with a lovely semi matte flawless finish.This is the only foundation that I confidently wear all day long in any climate without having to touch-up or blot throughout the day.
Most Helpful Criticism
Great coverage but drying
I purchased this foundation after having a trial in store and loved it, however after a few applications found that it was drying out my skin. Such a shame because the coverage is great and it lasts well throughout the day. Good foundation, but not for me.
Forever FavoriteI absolutely love this foundation! It is a true medium+ coverage foundation with a lovely semi matte flawless finish.This is the only foundation that I confidently wear all day long in any climate without having to touch-up or blot throughout the day.
For bulletproof wearThis is beyond holy grail - it's a damn unicorn. Coverage that can be sheered out or built up and dries down quickly so you can work it to your perfect level - great for spot concealing without having to fuss and blend. Works with powders or creams on top. And then IT. WILL. NOT. BUDGE. ALL. DAY. The worst thing about this foundation is that it can be a little TOO long-wearing - you need to take care to get it all off properly (double cleansing is your friend). I've tried every Insta-famous foundation under the sun and I can tell you this is the only one worth buying.
Holy GrailI have tried so many foundations and continue to come back to this one. I can put it on at 6am in the morning and it doesn't move until I wash it off later that night. It lasts and sets in place, I've worn it when it was raining and it didn't run or move. It can be a little hard to find the right shade but I still love it. I have oily skin and this foundation is matte but not drying.
Holy Grail FoundationThis is one of the best foundations I've ever tried. I have pale combination skin with cool undertones (MAC NW13) and the colour 1C0 Shell is a perfect match for me. This foundation is full coverage, very natural-looking, does not get cakey or patchy and lasts all day. I use this over Benefit's Porefessional and it stays put on my face, covers my pores and my T-zone stays relatively matte all day (just a couple of touch ups required). Amazing.
My Ride or Die FoundationThis really does stay in place, all.day.long. If I have a 12 hour work day, and then squeeze in a run without washing my face first (oops), I still come home shocked at how flawless my makeup still is. Super buildable with full coverage. I do at times feel like my face is a bit lifeless if I don't do blush with it, but I'm not makeup-savvy enough to contour, so I usually just use blush and switch to a BB or lighter coverage if I want something slightly more natural. I don't know how I will cope if they ever discontinue this.
Amazing foundationThis is one of my favourite foundations ever! It lasts for ages and makes my skin feel soft. There is a great colour range so you’re likely to find a good match for you
All Day WearI love this foundation, I have been using it for a while now. It is the only one I have been able to wear all day without it rubbing away from my T Zone. Goes on really smooth with a beauty blender especially.
all day foundationI just keep coming back to this foundation, good coverage and all day wear, even lasts all day at work. Definitely recommend
New FaveI’ve heard so much hype about this foundation, and finally tried it for myself. I have sensitive combination skin and this foundation is perfect. It’s matte finish but doesn’t look dry and lasts all day long. My only regret is not trying it sooner!
Holy Grail, Day One FoundationI have used this foundation for years. I stray and try other brands and blends but always come back to this one as old faithful. Buildable coverage and doesn't cause my skin to breakout or irritate at all.
Great coverage and easy to blendThis goes onto my skin so flawlessly and is so light for its coverage. I love it but prefer powder over liquid foundation
Excellent coverage and feels so lightI tried painting 1 side of my face for the day just to compare how well it stayed on for the whole day while I was at home. It held up all day.. VERY happy with the result. It also covers my rosacea. The color that I got 1N2 Ecru matches perfectly with my skin tone too, so I will definitely buy again.
Holy grail!I absolutely love this foundation! I wear the shade Shell and it’s so good for my very fair skin!
I’ve tried other foundations but they just don’t compare and I always come back to this! I recommend it to everyone I can! I’ve seen a few people complain about the smell of it but I really love the smell!
No transferAmazing foundation that stays in place no matter how hot the weather and doesn't transfer when hugging. Foundation looks the same at the end of the day as it did when you first applied it
The bestEvery beauty lover knows about Estee Lauder Double Wear. It's the best foundation for oily or oily/combo skin. Even though it's supposed to be medium to full coverage, you can definitely sheer it out by using a damp makeup sponge and only applying a light layer. The result is a natural skin-like finish that will last all day!
The best foundation!This foundation is one of my absolute go to products. No foundation looks so good on my face and lasts as well as Double Wear! It can be worn at a light or medium coverage, or built up to full coverage. Such a versatile product for every day or a night out.
Still the bestEvery now and then I reach out and try a flashy new foundation that I see splashed all over Instagram. But at the end of the day I always come back to double wear! Nothing beats it for consistent coverage and lasting through the day - please don’t change!
Beautiful lightBeautiful and ligt feeling coverage doesn’t feel heavy just beautiful makeup
LOVE!One of my favourite foundations, long wearing and great colour selection. Great for day time looks and is buildable for night time. I have used this during various skin stages (use to have some pretty terrible adult acne to now clear skin from roaccutane) and it works on both! Definitely recommend
Top of the classThis is the ride or die of foundations and it’s going to get you through any kind of day.
Love it! Would recommend rehydrating the skin with a mask or good serum after wearing though as it can be a little drying over time.
ExcellentExcellent full cover foundation that won’t budge and won’t come off on your clothes. Pairs well with the matte primer and pressed powder. Love the whole double-wear range.
full coverageBest full coverage foundation - can't use this product everyday as it will break me out but great for a night out as it is very long lasting
Splurge but worth itits a bit of a splurge but it really does make my face look flawless
Perfect foundation for all skin typesFinally comes in a shade light enough for us ghosts!
I'm 30, dry skin, and double wear was my first ever high end product many years ago when it's lightest shade was to dark for me and I'd have to use a white mixer, I powered through but never understood the hype since I was having to change it. Now I totally understand the hype! I wear it as a light to very light medium overage by only applying the smallest amount with my hands and it covers my redness but my skin still looks like fresh skin especially over my tatcha dewy skin cream since I prefer glow not matte. Now days I have a whole drawer full of high-end and luxury foundations and this one blows them all out of the water. This one is now my number one since I can easily make it dewy and light
Worth itI have been using this for years and still love it. I have oily/ combo skin and this is the only foundation that provides the best coverage and doesn’t melt off my skin in summer.
Great full coverageThis foundation is so full coverage! Excellent for special events like weddings or formals. It doesn’t budge one bit
StapleA great staple foundation, it's a tad thick and can cake if you aren't careful. I mix it with a lighter coverage foundation to get my holy trail mix
Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In PlaceSo i've switched over from MAC Pro Longwear waterproof foundation as i found it way too thick & sticky on my skin. I used the 'findation' match finder on Adore Beauty site to find a similar colour in the Estee Lauder and it was spot on! I found the MAC make up quite sticky and took a while to dry but this product dries pretty quickly and doesn't have that sticky feeling. I usually end up with a shiny noise from oil during the day but i am finding this is not happening as much with this product which is great. Lovely matte full cover finish. I'm happy with it. My sister and niece kept telling me to try this and i wish i had of done it sooner!!
My go to foundationI LOVE This foundation! It has great coverage & perfect for everyday wear. My foundation always looks perfect at the end of each day too, cannot fault this.
Holy Grail of FoundationsI've been using double wear for years. Great coverage and stays on all day! My only suggestion would be use a good primer underneath so it's easier to take off at the end of the day.
FAVOURITEI have tried switching foundation and I always come back to this because it is the best for oily/ combo skin. Doesn’t look cakey just feels heavier than other foundations.
Great coverage but dryingI purchased this foundation after having a trial in store and loved it, however after a few applications found that it was drying out my skin. Such a shame because the coverage is great and it lasts well throughout the day. Good foundation, but not for me.
Extremely high coverageThis is a foundation I only reach for once in a blue moon. It is extremely full coverage with a very matte mask like finish. I only ever use this when doing a full on glamour makeup look. It definitely needs a lot of contour and highlight added in as it makes skin look quite flat. Great for events! Doesn’t budge a bit!
The foundation has best coverageI have already recommend many friends about this foundation! I have some spot on my face, but not very obvious and it can cover almost all my spot and not oily after a whole hot day! I will buy again!
Definitely yesIm a 1w2 sand in winter (2w1 dawn in summer), and they dont stock this shade at myer or david jones. But they do on adorebeauty. Ive been using this foundation for 5 years now. Tried samples of other foundations here and there (hourglass, fenty, giorgio armani) and nothing is better and worth its price than this one. Great for more combination /oily skin, and not really recommended for naturally dry skin (im not a dry skin, but im a dehydrated skin)
Fantastic Medium - Full Coverage Foundation!I had used in the past but then went with drug store brands for a while because I just too lazy to go to department store.Now I am back on Double Wear and absolutely fell in love with it again! I got combination skin and often get oily in T zone in the afternoon. With this product, I only need blotting papers then my makeup is looking fresh again! 10/10!
I wish I had found this sooner.I am 48, combination skin and I am still suffer with adult/cystic acne. I also have issues with foundation getting cakey, wearing off, getting patchy and breaking me out.
I had almost given up on finding a foundation I was happy with.
This has been the answer to my prayers. Once it is on it isn't going anywhere, it doesn't crease and appear cakey and hasn't broken me out.
I would say it is medium coverage, it is buildable to a point, and it will let you spot conceal. I do you a powder with it, but that is a preference thing. I apply it with a damp sponge.
I do double cleanse though when I wear it to be on the safe side, (but again that is a preference thing).
I am now not going to by other foundations as I have now found the one!
The Best !Have been using this foundation for over 5 years now and I have never looked elsewhere. Buildable product nor cakey whatsoever ! Love love, love !!!!
Best foundation!Wear this everyday, highly recommend!
Great ValueThis foundation is perfect for oily/ combo skin. I find that I lasts all day, all night even in the warmer months and the coverage is great
Great coverage but tacky and flatI have ridiculously oily skin, clear but oily. Tried this on multiple occasions in cold and hot weather, loved the coverage but also felt that I looked very artificial. I prefer a more skin-like finish but this is more full glam. Makes my cheeks feel very tight and dry, so probably will not go back to this.
In loveThis foundation is the best! It is so versatile and builds really well if you’re going out at night. The coverage is amazing and the price is great value for money. A bottle lasts me over 3 months
long lastingGood overall foundation but unfortunately causes breakouts for me. it's long lasting and has good coverage that lasts all night, i will still occasionally wear it for special occasions despite the breakouts
Full coverage and stays put!I admit that as a stay at home mum I don't use this daily as I don't need full coverage (it's coverage is impeccable), but this foundation has been my go-to for weddings and events for many years now without fail. I wore it for my own wedding nearly 11 years ago too and it really is the most rock solid foundation I've ever used. It stays put and looks absolutely perfect for hours on end and never goes shiny or starts to wear off. It also doesn't run when I sweat or with tears. I would recommend this to anyone.
I am loyal to this product!I have combination skin ( dryer in winter months ) and have olive complexion. Ever since I discovered this product ( 3-4 years ago,,, shade: Shell Beige ), I have not even thought about trying another brand. It provides excellent coverage ( once you find your perfect shade ), it lasts all day and night and just compliments my skin.
Can be applied thinner for a just a lighter coverage by using a wet applicator too.
I never run out of this product. Normally, I always have a spare new/full bottle in case life gets too busy to go and shop.
Perfection in a bottleLove this foundation. Good, smooth even coverage. Buildable but it also has terrific staying power and lasts all day at work. Make sure you get the perfect shade match to your skin tone. There are many choices so something will match perfectly.! My shade is Rattan.
There’s nothing betterI love this foundation so much. It matches perfectly with my skin tone and provides such good coverage
My oily skin HGthis is honestly the best foundation I’ve ever used. Unlike most hyped products, this one really did not disappoint and is long lasting. the coverage is also amazing. My only complaint is that the foundation will come off of my nose after a few hours but that’s a problem I can’t fix no matter what I do and is my most problematic area when it comes to oily skin.
Good coverageGood coverage and blends well. this foundation covers my blemishes nicely and feels nice on my skin. I have given 4 stars only because you need to buy the pump separately and as this is a glass bottle, you need to turn the bottle upside down to get the product out and way too much comes out without the pump
love!This is such a good foundation especially if you're looking for a super long wearing formula! perfect for special occasions and photographs really nicely. I have dry skin and i havent found it clings to dry patched like other foundations can.
love thisIf you use an appropriate amount, it gives skin the perfect level of full coverage without looking heavy or powdery. It is smooth and blends very well. Excellent for photography!! Also great for night time. The formula is wonderful
Great ProductGreat product and does not dry out skin. Love the coverage.
Perfect for oily/combo skin!Love this foundation! I was previously using the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation and made the switch because that one was way too dewy for my skin type. Since switching I’m amazed that my skin stays matte through the whole day (but not dry), which is the best! No need to powder or touch up throug the day. Also amazing colour correction and covers blemishes. Will definitely repurchase!
Worth the price tag!Love this foundation. Longwear without looking cakey, doesn’t cause breakouts. Little more expensive but worth it for sure.
Perfect for eventsThis is the perfect event/night time foundation. Really covers everything and is full coverage. Natural looking too.
Holy Grail foundation for my oily/combination skinI've been using this foundation off and on for decades and sometimes I forget how good it is until I start using it again. On my oily/combo skin, the coverage, finish and wear time are outstanding. I've tried many other foundations, including the other variations Double Wear, and while they all have their particular strengths, it's this original Double Wear foundation that consistently keeps its place on my 'ride or die' list. This is the only foundation that I can apply early in the morning and it will still look good at midnight, even in high humidity.
GreatThis is amazing, long lasting but still looks good even after nightshift. I've got oily skin and it controls the oil perfectly with incredible coverage. Doesn't rub off when it's on but is easy to remove at the end of the day. This is my go to foundation, love it.
Best!This is one of my favourite foundations ever! I switch between this and NARS sheer glow and I love them both just the same. Great buildable coverage and blends beautifully into the skin leaving a gorgeous natural finish
The best for full coverageI have found this to be the best foundation for full coverage. It stays on all day and night (and if I am naughty and don't take my make up off before bed, it is even still perfect the following morning!)
Good CoverageThis is good coverage foundation, i used the shade matching tool as I usually wear Clinique foundation (the anti-blemish) and got the perfect shade. I was looking for a change as I’m getting older and am finding the Clinique to be a bit dry in winter time. I have no complaints with the formula or the wear time but I absolutely hate the bottle it comes in. It’s hard to get the right amount out and I’m clumsy and have tipped it over a few times while doing my makeup and for the price you really don’t want to be wasting a drop! It’s a great foundation and so far hasn’t broken me out or irritated my sensitive dry/combination skin.
a good productIt can work all day long and will no feel dry.
great for combo skinVery nice foundation - works well to control oils, but still doesn't cake up on dry spots. My combo skin loves it!
Great foundation when you want coverageI usually prefer a lighter foundation for my dry skin but this is my go/to foundation for events or times when I want coverage without looking dry and cakey. Would definitely recommend.
Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Makeupl have never used Estee Lauder as its at the high end in the price for me for makeup but after first use and the comments l have received on how much younger l look l will not change brands ever. The liquid double wear is as it says it lasts all day and l highly recommend this to anyone and being older and not the best as doing makeup you cannot mess up applying this. Best there is and won't ever go back to any other brand.
Lasts an 8hr nursing shiftHands down the best foundation that I've ever used.
It even has survived an 8hr nursing shift without melting away
GreatI have used this for years. Best foundation out but can dry your skin out a little.
Best FoundationIve tried a-lot of foundations due to having oily skin and this is the best one yet! Medium to full coverage and doesn't feel heavy on the skin!
Withstands the Darwin humidityLiving in Darwin you will hear many women say there's no point wearing makeup because it sweats right off (usually true). But I have applied this foundation at 3.30am for work, returned home by 5pm and it is still in place, no shine and no worries. 100% swear by this!
excellentthis foundation is amazing! It blends so easily and leaves a flawless look on my skin! The coverage is perfect and it is so lightweight! I definitely recommend!
This foundation changed my lifeThis is by far the best foundation that I have ever used. I have been using Estee Lauder Double Wear for about 2 years now and it's never let me down. The staying power of this foundation is unbelievable and all I use under it is moisturiser. A little goes a long way. I bottle usually lasts me almost 6 months and I wear it most days. highly recommend a beauty blender for this foundation.
Holy GrailI tried and tried to find a cheaper dupe for this, and consequently binned heaps of duds. Gave up and rebought my old fave and will never go back. Perfection in a bottle, so long as you get the correct shade. I actually kissed it the moment I applied it again. Mwwwa!
Amazing product(black hair, blue eyes, combination skin and extremely fair, my shade is 1N0 -porcelain).
I love this foundation, great staying power and can be worn full coverage or medium to light (mixed with sunscreen/ moisturiser during the day). It has a beautiful satin to matte finish when not set and matte when set. My only negative is the flash back when wearing it at night but I can look past it due to how beautiful it makes my skin look. I’ve tested it’s staying power at festivals, clubs, concerts etc and it stays beautifully. On hot summer days I recommend Sheering it out due to sweating (hot Aussie climate) but that could just be my skin.
Pretty goodNot the greatest coverage, however has a natural look to it for everyday makeup
PerfectThis is an amazing foundation and I can find a shade that matches my skin. The coverage is also amazing and it lasts all day long
Best full coverage foundation out thereThis is hands down the best full coverage foundation out there, I have tried so many others but I always come back to this. Its perfect for both Dry and Oily skin as my friends swear by it as well. Its a classic and will be my go to foundation forever, If you like a lighter foundation try the Nude version i bought that as well and its perfect!
Great coverageI found the colour range for this foundation very natural and true to skin tone. Great coverage and buildable without looking cakey.
Good staying power also, particularly with the use of a good primer
My go toThis is my go to foundation. I use it almost every day. I just love it. It really blends into the skin, and is quite full coverage. You can adjust the coverage by applying more or less as you choose. I feel like when wearing this foundation, at some point in the day, I forget I am even wearing it.
I love the colour, I love the texture, I love the way that it is easy to apply.
It always looks good.
Would highly recommend. It lives up to the hype.
Best productI just love this foundation.it stays there for so long and makes my face more glowing
Fantisic Cover for those with bad acne !This product has amazing coverage for my acne and stays on all day. Even if your face gets a bit wet it stays on very well. high recommend it. The only flaw is after wearing it for a while it can start to feel heavy but that can be over looked when the cover is great.
Holy Grail!This is the best foundation I’ve ever used! It’s got a great coverage without looking cakey. Nothing else has compared.
mmmI used to use this product and found it good coverage and good for oil control, but did tend to clog pores and cause break outs for me. Also, the shade / look / coverage did not look natural, it did look heavily made up when wearing.
DOES NOT MOVE!I have combo skin, I use this foundation only on weekends when I am going out and it does not move!! Photo's perfectly and even when I get hot and sweaty it still does not move!
I am fair skin but use: 2W2 Rattan because I tan most weekends.
This product does not have a down fall!
My go to for a night out or a long daySeriously stays on forever. May need a bit of a powder touch up during the day but coverage is so long lasting. My go to for a wedding or for the races. Beautiful coverage too
One of my faves!I like to try different foundations in the hope of finding something miraculous and find I ALWAYS come back to this one. I have combination skin and find I don't need a powder over the top. Will no doubt keep buying :)
