Absolute Fave!! Been using this foundation for about 5 years now, and i would never consider changing. I'm someone with a bit of a yellow undertone and this brand has matched my skin tone the best. I use the shade Hazel. A little goes a long way. The foundation does not get cakey or cause breakouts in the skin. The formula is thick and spreads well with both brush and sponge. The foundation is worth the R655!!!

Finding the right foundation was always a challenge to me but since I started using this foundation, I haven't found anything that compares to the quality. The foundation is full coverage and I use only a small amount so the bottle lasts a really long time which makes it worthwhile even though it's pricey. The texture of the formula is creamy, dries quickly on the skin and dries to a matte finish which looks very natural. It does not take a lot of work to blend into the skin which saves time in the morning, and does not need to be set with powder. The coverage is so good that I don't even need under eye concealer. I use shade 4N1 Shell Beige in summer when I'm tanned, and shade 3W1.5 Fawn in winter when my skin is lighter. The foundation is true to it's name, it really stays in place, no matter what! It's sweat-proof, cry-proof, allergy-proof and hug-proof (it does not rub off on the other person when you hug). Once it sets, it does not transfer, and wears all day into the night, it only comes off when you take it off. I discovered that MAC is part of Estee Lauder, and found that MAC's foundation pump fits on the Double Wear glass bottle. This makes it easier to dispense a precise amount which is economical and hygienic. I really enjoy using this foundation and fully recommend it, it's so worth it because it's perfect in every way.

This foundation has become a standard product in my make up routine. Its light, oil free , it lasts and best of all, a little goes a long way.

Its a bit pricey but its worth it and I don't think I'll change from this particular foundation anytime soon...

Everyone who knows me, knows that I am a MAC lover. But I wanted to try something new, so I bought this product. At first, I regretted it because it seemed so heavy. Then my cousin who only uses this foundation, told me that I have to use a VERY SMALL amount. I tried this and I was amazed at how little I needed. It lasted all day. I don't use this foundation daily, so I can't tell you how long it lasts. Its usually quite challenging to get a foundation I like, they are either too oily or the wrong shade but I love the texture and shade of this one.

This has been my holy grail foundation for like 4 years now and nothing can come close to this foundatio for me. Since using this I have become such a foundation snob because nothing can come close to doublewear for me. It is pricey but worth it.

I love love love the coverage ! It’s like a new layer of skin . The only draw back is that there is flashback . Either than that , it wears all day long and is completely matte

It’s not often that you’re wowed by someone’s flawless foundation application and finish, but when you are - GUARANTEED that person is wearing Estée Lauder’s double wear foundation.

I’ve been using Estée Lauder’s double wear for almost a year now and it’s definitely one of my favorite foundations.
I often switch and swap because I like to always have a different look. Sometimes I want to have a dewy look, sometimes I’m feeling more Matt and sometimes I just want to be flawless.
When I want that absolute flawless look - Double wear is what I turn to. It’s so easy to apply and then it dries. It doesn’t smudge, or rub off on your clothes - and literally doesn’t budge! It’s also great for high coverage and long wear.

Double wear is an absolute essential in my makeup purse and I recommend it to anyone who wants a flawless, glowing look.

My mom has relied on Estée Lauder’s double wear foundation since the 80’s and trust me I understand why.

Very full coverage. Lasts long on face. Does however cling onto dry patches so would recommend more for oily skin.

Hi Beauties, Been using Estee Lauder's Double wear foundation for about 3 years now. And that's my #Holygrail. If you're looking for the perfect foundation, then this is it. I have Combination skin, and this Truly works wonders for me.

I use this Foundation in the shade 5w1 Bronze. This is my everyday Foundation. When using it to work I use about 3 drops for a lighter coverage, since it's an everyday look. On occasions I use about 5 drops for full/ long lasting coverage.

This product for me is best applied with a beauty blender, as it leaves a smooth finish, where as the brush makes it look streaky. My foundation stays in place throughout the day, and remains dry.

I would say that Estee Lauder doesn't transfer easily like most other Foundations. They have a wide range of shades, which I love, as I for one have more of a yellowish skin tone, and surprisingly I found a Fitting shade. The price is a bit much, but I would say that it's worth it.

This is a 10/10 for me. Highly recommended!!!!

I have oily/combo skin and this is my go to foundation for events (weddings , functions - long wearing makeup days)

Great shade range- although I do find it leans a little orangey-pinkey; yellow undertones(me) may have a little bit of trouble finding the right shade, I needed to be matched twice before I actually found my shade.

Keeps shine from breaking through, and even when the oil does start to show at the end of the day, the foundation doesn't break up or fade.

Has a beautiful matte / satin finish that keeps you looking alive after applying and not chalky.

I haven't been wearing foundation for about three years, because i always found foundation to be a little heavy on my skin. But because i have been having some blackhead and scaring problems, i decided to look into foundations again. A friend on mine on youtube recommended the Estee Lauder Double wear foundation and it is great. My only problem would be the packaging, i would love to see a pump just to get a cleaner use of the product and it extremely matt which people with dry skin and people who like the duey look might have a problem with, which is simultaneously great for people with oily skin and for going out all night.

As a make up artist i can confidently say that Estee Lauder takes the crown when it comes to foundations.

The Double Wear foundations have the most amazing consistency to work with.

This foundation is perfect for everyday wear and the shade options are incredibly flexible. It makes the perfect base for all your contouring/highlighting etc.

You can build this foundation to suit your coverage need and it never looks patchy or thick.

The most amazing thing about this foundation is that it feels so light on your skin, almost as if it is a second skin! I highly recommend this to anyone who needs a good quality foundation for regular use.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation has got to be my all time favorite when it comes to foundation. I have tried countless other brands but nothing compares.

My favorite thing about this product is that I can run around all day and still look flawless by the time I head home.

Also on those late nights when I get home and I'm way too tired to wash off my make-up, I don't wake up with foundation all over my sheets.

I always say the trick to having an overall gorgeous make-up look is by having the prefect foundation. This provides full coverage without making your face look cakey and without making your face feel 'heavy' as some foundations do.

If you can afford it, I highly recommend this product and will continue to buy it!

Lauder is my favourite brand and in terms of long wear, this is my go-to foundation. My 2nd fav is the Maximum Coverage for when I want to look flawless.

I find that both foundations last really really well, but neither of them control the oil on my nose unless I prime with MAC paint pot and powder properly. The rest of my T-Zone is fine, but I am starting to think that there is not a product on earth that can keep my nose shine free haha.

The biggest problem I have with this foundation is the way it settles and accentuates my pores a tad. Don't get me wrong, I still think it is of the highest quality as it covers amazingly and truly lasts forever on the skin.

It is really easy to apply and blend out and the finish is not too matte to where you end up looking flat.

I will continue repurchasing and can definitely recommend this product.

This is my go-to foundation for everyday wear. It works well when my skin is behaving and I can really rely on it on those hormonal breakout days. It covers everything from scars to active acne, but does not have that heavy/"can't breathe" feeling on your skin. I am the biggest fan! I have purchased and will repurchase many more times :)
