Best Foundation, EVER!!!!

Ok so I have been completely obsessed for a good part of my life with finding the right foundation to match my skin perfectly and last the entire day without ANY touch-ups, all hail Double Wear! The color matches perfectly to my fair skin and covers all flaws without even looking unnatural. I've had so many people give me compliments on how lovely my skin is when in fact it is the foundation that is so wonderful. I remember popping into the shop after my shifts at the beauty spa (past 8 at night) and i would still get complimented by complete strangers on my skin, a mere 12 hours after application, and the best part of all, no touch ups! Highly recommended product this :)

I could write a whole lot when it comes to my skin and what i have used. Its not alwasy easy to find a product that will match your skin type. With a combination skin type (Oily T-Zone), and dry skin on the rest of my face, foundations are hard to find. I needed a product that will most importantly not help with the break out, and will stay matt for the day. The minute I tried this product i knew she was the one. The foundation felt smooth on my skin, almost like a second layer of skin. The effect was immediate and lasts me throughout the day. It is a bit too pricey for me, but its worth it as it lasts a few months.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation - Thee best!

I am fortunate whereby I don't need coverage but love the make up look, I have searched for a foundation that gives you that natural but moisturised look and couldn't really find this - even after trying tons of different brands. My concern was also that I have sensitive skin and did not want a break out. My friend discovered the double wear foundation and swore by it, I simply had to try this.

After going to the mall and getting a sample I fell in love with it. It gives me the little coverage I have been looking for, the natural look, the hydrated look and it stays!!! :) It had everything I was looking for, this is now my designated foundation for when I am going out.

I love it!

Best foundation in the world

I wear this in the shade Sand.

My mom originally bought it for me when I was 18 and had really horrible skin, as it does a good job of covering, and that's what I needed for my matric dance.

Over the years I've always gotten bored and tried out other (mainly cheaper) foundations, but I always come back to this. It is INCREDIBLY pricey - I bought a new bottle last week and it was R450 in Red Square eeeeeek!

However, I wear it every single day, sometimes reapplying it if I'm going out at night, and a bottle lasts me no less than 4 months, often more! The formula is liquid and it lasts all day, especially if worn with a primer and set with a powder!

I have had so many people stop me and ask what foundation I use as my skin just glows and looks flawless!

I will always repurchase this!

My sisters swear by Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation and I simply had to try it for myself. A friendly consultant at the Estee counter helped me find my shade, which is Cashew. I fell inlove with the light weight smooth texture of this foundation and how my skin just seems to soak it up. It gives full coverage, makes my skin look flawless yet NATURAL and stays on the entire day even in this heat! Loving this foundation!!

Estee Lauder Double wear

I have always been A MAC fan, especially with their foundations until i got a sample of Estee Lauder double wear foundation. They had a colour which suited my skin to the T where MAC seemed to always be a shade off from my skin tone. The foundation lasts all day with no touch ups required, there is not even a need to apply powder as the look alone is flawless. Currently am using this foundation and is currently my favourite foundation to date. :)

Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Cashew

This foundation has become my savior in my "acne crazy" stage in pregnancy. No woman wants to feel unattractive with breakouts and marks and thanks to this product I finally can go out in public confidently! I hate foundations that feel heavy and leave a blotchy like residue and this one does not do that at all! I applied it in the morning and it lasted for up to 7 hours without my T Zone getting oily or my marks being visible. This has become my best and most favorite product in my handbag and I don't EVER leave the house without it. What I also love about it is that a little goes a very long way, not much needs to be added for medium to full coverage and it's completely build-able. I have a porcelain look whenever I go out and I feel flawless all day. Thank you Estée Lauder! You have made this soon to be mama a beautiful one! Xoxo

estee lauder double wear foundation light in 3.5

I love love this foundation. Trust me for those who think Estee Lauder makeup is for the old ladies you are SADLY mistaken. This foundation went on so beautifully and you can barely tell you have anything on. Im a beauty skeptical about light foundations on my skintone. I always found that they end up turning me lighter or not cover as much. This foundation here proved me different and guess what? It's build-able and complements my powders too.

Perfect for the summer and lasts so long. I almost forgot that i had it oN!
I'm so in love with Double Wear Light Foundation. My skin looks so pretty.

*swoon*

Okay, so once I got over the initial shock at being told the price (you'd swear there was gold in it) I asked for a sample because there was no way on earth I was going to pay that much to get home and find out that I look orange in natural light. I'm extremely pale (as in virtually glow-in-the-dark) and I was ecstatic to find that they stocked a shade which actually suited my skin-tone - "Shell" - and I didn't turn into the Oros man as I stepped out of the shop. Being curious as to how far I could push the product, I used it as a foundation and a concealer to hide those dark circles and spots and it worked wonders!It even blended into the rest of my skin without a streaky texture. The tiny bottle of sample lasted me an entire month before I was forced to go and buy the real thing. Is it worth the goldmine you'd have to pay to afford it? Probably...

Long wearing Foundations

Finally a range of shades to cater for Indian skin tones. It leaves the skin soft and semi matte. It really does last through the day

I absolutely love this foundation! My sister in law introduced me to this! I have always thought she's got such perfect skin, until she told me she uses Esteé Lauder Double Wear foundation (she uses max cover though but the EL representative advised that I didn't need max cover).
At first I was a bit weary to buy it, but I really wanted porcelain skin so bad, so they gave me a sample and 2 days later I went back and bought a bottle! It is truely amazing, doesn't smear off on my fiancé's shirt or rub off during the day. When I go out at night I just apply some powder and I'm good to go again. The bottle lasts me about 5/6 months if I wear it every day. Also worked great for our engement shoot photo's!

At the Estee Lauder counters in most retail chain stores that carry their product lines, they use a colour chart to match the foundation to your skin tone. A free consultation is definitely worth it as I also received a 10 day sample of this to try out before deciding to purchase. I must say I am most impressed. A little goes a long way and after 10 days the sample bottle was still half full. It leaves your skin even toned, smooth and glowing. It is a bit on the pricey side but you know you are getting quality with this product as it will not damage your skin.

This is the best foundation ever! it covers my acne marks and dark cicrcles around my eyes so perfectly that i even forget that they are there. it also stays in place and wont smuge or rub off and it is heat resistant so i can be an animal on the dance floor and still look great without having a make up melt down! It doesnt clog my pores so i dont have problems with acne. I HIGHLY reccomend this foundation, the price is a bit steep but you are paying for QUALITY!

This product is actually stated as 15-hour wear, and it most definitely lives up to it.

I have VERY sensitive skin, and on various occasions have tried different foundations and while some have just not lasted or given enough coverage, others have actually caused terrible skin reactions - one I actually had to go to the doctor for, and was given meds and a day off work, as my face was completely swollen and puffy, my eyes looked like slits and there was a red rash all over my skin which did eventually peel off.

BUT this foundation is my solution! I also have quite oily skin, yet this foundation doesn't make my skin look oiler, it doesn't cause breakouts and it covers ALL DAY!

When wearing this foundation, I have been told at least 4 times now, that I have such lovely skin and what foundation do I use?

I use the shade Sand and it just fits seamlessly with my own skin tone. Both my mom and my sister also use this foundation, in Fresco and Bone, and while we have all tried other foundations in the Estee Lauder range and from other brands, we always return to this one. The best of the best!

Estee Lauder Double Wear Ivory Beige and Fresco

Very good coverage for my freckles and pigmentation marks, glides on easily and stays on all day even through an hours gym workout. I use the lighter shade of Fresco in the winter and in summer the Ivory Beige or sometimes mix the 2.

Double Wear EL - great coverage

Double Wear is a quality product. I love the light, air-brushed look it gives to my skin while still providing full coverage.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

I started my quest for a new foundation on Saturday and that led me to the Estee Lauder counter. I told the consultant that I wasn't happy with my current foundation, that being Elizabeth Arden Intervene. When I apply my current foundation it looks mask like and takes a while before the colour "settles" and looks natural and the only reason why I've been using it for a year now, is because its the perfect shade. So the EL consultant testing a number of colours from the Double Wear range as I prefer a medium to full coverage foundation. I was a bit concerned when she started using cotton buds to apply the foundation, surely Estee Lauder has foundation sponges? Evidently not! Eventually after 6 shades we found a shade that matched and I received a sample to use. The shade is called Shell Beige and I really like how it feels on my skin. After I apply it, the colour doesn't need to settle and looks natural immediately. I love that its oil free as I have an oily skin and it keeps my skin looking matte all day long. I'm going to keep using the tester until its empty then try another brand. I don't think I want to commit to one brand just yet!
