    The best foundation ever!

    I have used this foundation for years. Starting in my 30's and now in my 40's. I had very oily skin when I started and it has dried out some as I have aged, but still I get perfect coverage. I no longer used powder (to prevent dryness) and it is still perfect. I apply with a foundation brush (after using a sponge for years) and have to press in with the warmth of my hands to get it to set. I morese Estee Lauder cleanser (in the blue bottle, can't remember the name) and it does a wonderful job of removing all of the makeup. If you buy this foundation and it is cakey, you need to take it back and get a fresh bottle. Estee Lauder will always make sure you are satisfied. This foundation lasts me about 6 months and I wear every day with a pretty heavy coverage. — 7 years, 1 month ago

    Will be returning

    I bought this foundation on the spot because of all the rave reviews and hype, but was truly disappointed. First the foundation wouldn't spill out of the bottle, so I tried thumping it for a few minutes until it finally reached the opening. It felt like a thick, semi-solid instead of a liquid, which would help the foundation stay put and not erase, but would also mean extremely difficult more I had dry-looking areas around my eyes, nose, and mouth because it wouldn't blend and dried before I got a chance to. It really does control oil and covers almost like a full-coverage foundation though, but looks kind of like a mask on. At night I couldn't get it off with warm water and a glycolic acid cleanser!! It was agony!! The next day the lady at the Clinique counter had a hard time taking it off too, and told me I had dry skin - but I told her no, it was the poor blending! — 7 years, 2 months ago

    Double Wear

    I love this foundation...I always get tons of compliments on my skin and I swear it's the great, sheer coverage of this foundation. People have even asked what kind I use. I feel it's a compliment at age 50 that people want to know what kind of products you use so their skin can look the same! — 7 years, 2 months ago

    Anyone over 40 needs to try this makeup!

    I love Estee Lauder makeup. While at the counter, I had Debbie, the makeup consultant show me Double Wear in Ivory Beige. I love it! I get compliments on my makeup everyday which is amazing considering I have had gastric bypass surgery. I am constantly told I don't look like "one of those" people! LOL! It is a gotta have for me. — 7 years, 2 months ago

    Great Foundation

    A few years ago, I noticed the ad campaign they launched for this and decided to try it. The search never ends for a "better" foundation! Since then, I have found nothing better. I actually prefer stores like Sephora where I can try on stuff myself, but I bit the bullet and hit the makeup counter. I usually am turned off by mediocre makeup application, sometimes poor color more, and high pressure sales pitches. This day I got lucky though, and the woman gave me Ecru which is the most beautiful color I've had on my skin ever. It matches every tone, and even seems to work in summer and winter, when my skin is slighter darker and lighter (not too much! - I don't purposely tan!). I explained to her that I never buy unless I've tried a sample and she very happily gave me a vial sample. After a week of use from that vial, I was hooked! This has great coverage. It says medium, but it is pretty strong coverage for me. It has a beautiful finish - not chalky or matte but not shiny either, and it is not cakey. Does it deliver on the 15 hour claim? Well, not quite, but granted, I feel that is pretty much impossible on oily skin like mine. What I do get is many hours of budge-proof wear that I occasionally, towards the end of the day, have to blot a little and smooth over a few creasy areas (around nose etc), and a beautiful natural color on my skin! I haven't found anything better yet, although I regularly try other stuff. This tends to be my go-to foundation! — 7 years, 3 months ago

    Love it!

    I agree - this is the best foundation on the market, hands down. Other companies are always coming out with foundations that say "compare to E.L. Doublewear" - NOTHING COMPARES TO THIS PRODUCT!!! It does not rub off and lasts for hours and hours. It's not too thick, has medium coverage and is just beautiful on. I have not found one thing I don't like about this foundation. It's moreh the $32.50! I have wasted so much money trying all the others that supposedly can compare, and I just end up throwing them away and going right back to Doublewear. It's wonderful! — 7 years, 3 months ago

    Coverave that lasts and lasts!

    This is an excellent foundation for anyone who needs plenty of coverage that lasts all day. It glides on perfectly and has buildable coverage. I usually have to apply powder to get the matte finish I prefer. Although it holds up well in the hot humid weather, it does tend to run if you sweat a great deal. If you don't sweat, it stays perfect all day. It provides excellent blemish coverage and is morene of my all- time favorites. I have purchased countless bottles of this and will continue to do so. — 7 years, 3 months ago

    Best Ever Foundation

    I've used EL Double Wear foundation since if first came on the market and have never strayed. I have fairly oily skin and always had trouble with foundation staying on my skin until I tried Double Wear! It stays put even while swimming and does not sink into lines and wrinkles, the colors offered should match almost any skin tone. Wonderful product I do not wish to live without. — 3 years, 4 months ago

    So So

    I have used this product for about 4 months, purchasing it because my foundation always seems to disappear after several hours of wear. (Where DOES it go? Does it melt off??) Initially, I really loved it. It seemed to last all day and not come off until I removed it. However, it seems as though my skin has adjusted to it and it comes off now, too. I am applying it in the same manner (foundation brush), so I'm not sure what the problem is. — 7 years, 3 months ago
