I bought the Estee Lauder Double Wear Face and Leg makeup With two weddings this year I had reconciled myself to wearing really long skirts again to cover my legs. I have extensive broken veins and blue blotching and normally wear thick opaque tights. I searched online for the best cover and reviews recommended this. I bought it and my daughter applied it - we were both amazed at the cover given. I wouldn't have gone with totally bare legs as it is obvious makeup has been applied, but was... (read more)

I love double wear. I have been using it for over 10 years. There are times when I think I should try something new on the market... but I always go back. The way it spreads really depends on the moisturizer you use beforehand. This stuff is the best and I will never switch again. I've learned my lesson and have wasted too much money thinking there is something better out there that is passing me by. (read more)

So I have been using Mineral foundation for 8 years; I can't stand how liquid foundations feel and they usually cause breakouts even oil free ones. I researched the ingredients of other department store brands and drug store brands this foundation had the best ingridients. The representative matched my color perfectly. this is quite easy to apply using fingers, or a sponge for buildable coverage. For light coverage smooth onto face, for more coverage on certain areas tap on or use a... (read more)

I've tried many foundations, but this one beats them all!!! Although quite pricey it stays on all day and doesn't leave an oily residue. I have normal to combination skin and it feels great and looks great. If you want good coverage then this is the one to go for as its better than Clinique, Lancôme, Mac, Chanel and Elizabeth Arden but you must try it for yourself go and get a sample just to see the difference, it's free and you've got nothing to lose, I know I wouldn't use anything else x (read more)

I'm sorry but if you review this product and claim that it gave you 'crusty skin' or whatever then unless you have a serious skin problem - you obviously aren't looking after your skin properly. You should not put any foundation onto a face unless it has been cleaned, cleansed and moisturised. I'm not being snotty, a decent cleansing wipe and a good face cream always make up for it. Fact of the matter is, don't put foundation onto a dirty, crummy face. Whatever is stuck to your face any... (read more)

I am twenty-one years old and have been using this foundation for three months. I found it helped keep my acne under control and once I was almost cured of acne, thanks to meds and this water-based foundation, I was happy with my face w/ and without make-up. I have dry skin due to the meds, but after applying a light face cream and este lauder I found it covered my redness and dry skin. It really doesn't seem to clog my large pores, which are susceptible to bacteria. (read more)

Being a lover of makeup I have used so many foundations on the market, including MAC, Clinique, Chanel and Benefit. None of these even come close to Estee Lauder double wear. Being very pale I choose the shade Shell (1C1) which is a great match for my skin tone. Sometimes it's hard to find a suitable shade it youre pale like me, as some products are too orange and you can see the foundation lines. However, no matter what, this foundation makes me feel so sophisticated. It makes my complexion... (read more)

A consultant at Boots recommended Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation Light. I've used loads of different brands and never been 100% happy so I came away from the counter thinking this will be just another one to try along with all the others. I put it on one morning before meeting my daughter for a day out shopping, it was a long day and the shops were hot. I powdered my t-zone only once during the day and when I got home my make-up was still in place, it hadn't worn off at all.

My older friend uses this and swears by it, but personally it completly disagreed with my skin! As it has a matt finish it wasn't suitable for my combination skin, it brought my skin out into dry patches in between my eyebrows, on my nose and on my cheeks, it covers blemishes very well but this is not for teenage skin! It is very very heavy and most people I know that use it only use it for nights out as it does not budge! I have to wash my face twice to fully remove it as make-up wipes... (read more)

I have super super oily skin and struggled for years to find a foundation that didnt come off around my sweat patches, that was until a friend recommended double wear to me. I have been using it for over 6 years now and wouldnt change for the world. It lasts through the hottest summer sweat to a dip in the pool. Application at first was difficult to get smooth as it dries super fast so you need to apply a very thick moisturiser or primer first for a smooth application and you also need to... (read more)

It goes on beautifully and you only need a tiny little bit...so a 30ml bottle lasts a long time.

Estee Lauder double wear is a very good foundation which has an excellent coverage and is very easy to remove. The makeup blends to your skin tone and lasts for up to 12 hours. The makeup stays in place all day without rubbing, or fading. It even stays put during the hot weather. I would recommend this foundation to any person with any skin tone. (read more)

This Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation is really good..... very good coverage although i think it tends to sufficate your skin abit, also some days the finish looks really good and other days it can look abit thick and cakey and it doesnt look as good as the previous day. i personaly have just started using double wear light and so far i highly recomend it, the finish is more sheer and it isnt as thick but it still covers your imperfections.

PERFECT colour match for my skin tone Ok, I used to use max factor colour adapt make-up, which was ok but didn't really give me the coverage I wanted.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation. Upon application it's very nice. Difficult to blend but does as it says. My foundation stays put morning til night, but is difficult to remove which is understandable.
I asked the lady to match one to my skin, which she did dreadfully. It was far too dark. You have to buy an exact match as with such heavy foundation the lines are very obvious if it's the wrong shade. It is really hard to blend as it dries really quickly, and i find it easiest to apply by... (read more)

This foundation overall is the best I've ever worn! I wear this foundation most of the time during my working day and evenings out. It last all day but I will reapply a small amount before the evening just to keep my skin looking great until the early hours! It really does give you the perfect, flawless finish and gets rid of that melting makeup look and fatigue.
I do switch to the newer Double Wear Light if I have a dry skin day as it doesn't cake as much as this original can.

Hi, have been using Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation for years, it is the KING of foundation. I mix two shades (Ivory Beige and Fresco) to match my skin tone. It covers my occasional breakouts. A tip to new users; apply about 10 mins after moisturising. Then wait for another 10 after application to set with powder for a flawless finish. You'll never go back! It rocks! (read more)

I have been using Double Wear for about 3 years.
It is a thick foundation and gives a medium to full, flawless coverage on normal/oily skin. Especially with a dusting of loose powder, it really is perfect!
UNLESS you have dry skin. It's awful on dry skin.
Only because my skin has recently become definably 'dry' am I changing to a lighter, more moisturising foundation for during the day.

Estee' Lauder have a wide variety of foundations, one for everyone. One person said that they have mature skin and it didn't work for her and I agree. Double wear is a medium to full coverage which is not appropriate for really dry and aged skin. There is Resilience lift Extreme $33.50, Futurist $33.50, and Lucidity $32.50. And for the people that can afford to spend more I would recommend Re-nutriv (which is sold exclusively at Nordstrom), They have it in the regular lifting and the brand... (read more)

This has to be the best foundation ever made! I have been using this for a few years now and would not use anything else.

It is a very nice makeup, stays on well, but one cannot pile it on or you will see caked makeup on the face. It must be applied correctly. I use fingers and not the foundation brush.

I was so excited after reading all the net reviews about Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation. But what a let down! It looks caked and too made up, and it is very ageing and drying. Sets very quickly. I bet it is a dream for oily skin, but on older, dryer skins it adds years. Looks like a dry mask, and it accentuated my pores.
