Very light coverage - 12-12-2018 by

Nice foundation but only gives a very light coverage. I prefer the original Double Wear, and I just sheer it out with a beauty blender when I want a lighter coverage. Also not many shades.

flawless skin all day long - 29-08-2018 by

I absolutelty love this foundation. It is light coverage but leaves your skin looking flawless. It's staying power is amazing and it stays on my skin from in the morning and until the evening. It is easy to apply and blends like a dream. The only thing is the colour range is quite small and i feel like the 1.0 intensity is slighty too pink undertoned for my skins. However all my friends say it looks great and doesnt look bad so who knows.

Not so light and could do with more of a shade range - 09-07-2018 by

I've been a die-hard fan of the classic Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation for many years so was very eager to give this a go when it was released. Unfortunately, I can't say I love this nearly as much. It's not a terrible foundation by any means, in fact it's pretty long-wearing and the finish is quite a pleasing satin a;most matte finish. It is definitely not a sheer foundation as it is advertised to be. This is just fine with me as I love a full coverage foundation. I would class it as more of a medium to full coverage foundation as the colour can be built up with a couple of layers.
My main issues with this foundation were the shade selection (which is pretty limited), the undertones (only cool undertones in the lightest shades) and the fact that it oxidises quite a bit (as a result, even the lightest shade became too dark for me).
I'm 43 with oily to combination skin that is fair to medium.

Glowy - 02-07-2018 by

I loved how hydrating and glowy this product is- great for my dry skin. I lightly set it with powder to make it last. For a tinted moisturiser style product it has great coverage too. Just needs to be blended well or can be a little patchy- easily fixed with a beauty sponge

Great foundation - 30-06-2018 by

I’m in my early 30s, have pretty fair skin and brown hair and I’m seeing the early signs of ageing which I really wanted to deal with. With a skin that tends to be both sensitive, dry, oily, and more recently prone to breakouts. I have tried so many BB Creams and CC creams and foundations over time.. this one is really good. It lasts really well (with some touch up on my nose, unless I use make up setting spray) and it also covers nicely without being too much. It’s somewhere between a foundation and a CC cream so if you’re after a CC cream then this is not for you.

It does tend to dry out my skin a bit, particularly to start with but that improved after a couple of weeks. If you have really dry skin this is probably not for you but otherwise it’s great!

Very light weight and dewy - 19-06-2018 by

I bought this as a change from my mineral powder and cant say Ill use it frequently. It is very light and does exactly what it says on the packaging. Very dewy look if that is what you like too. For me personally, the powders are more flattering but this is great for a light cover for those with little pigmentation or skin problems and who like a moisturising foundation.

Hooray! - 14-06-2018 by

I am so glad Estee Lauder brought out this version of their Double Wear makeup. It is incredibly lightweight yet provides great coverage. I love that it isn't quite as "full on" as the regular double-wear, and is much more suited to my combo skin type.

Perfect everyday foundation - 01-06-2018 by

Light-weight and durable foundation that is perfect for everyday. Leaves the skin looking not too matte and has a good amount of coverage. Good for the summertime

Perfect Summer Foundation! - 08-05-2018 by

This is a perfect light-weight foundation which has amazing staying power, lasting all throughout the day - even in hot weather! I normally use the Estee Lauder Double Wear 2 in 1 foundation, and for a lighter look and feel, this is my go-to! It allows my skin to breathe while still offering maxium coverage. I love that it is light-weight and not too heavy, with a satin, dewy finish, but still able to cover my imperfections. I find it to be the perfect foundation to wear in Summer, when you don't want to be too heavy with your foundation.

My go-to foundation! - 08-05-2018 by

I tried this foundation after not wanting the coverage of the normal double wear. This foundation gives such a nice medium coverage and lasts me all day! I have light neutral skin and the number 1 shade matches me perfectly. The finish is amazing and I cannot recommend this enough.

Lightweight and long-lasting - unheard of! - 30-04-2018 by

There is nothing I don't like about this foundation. You can mix it with moisturiser or illuminator to get a dewy finish or build it up if you are putting a full 'face' on.

It doesn't budge, even after a night of dancing or a day of hard-core aircon and boring meetings. It's the only foundation I have ever finished. Please don't ever discontinue Estee Lauder!

Long Wearing & Hard Working! - 19-03-2018 by

I looooove this long wearing foundation! Not only does it 'set' (but doesn't get cakey or mask like - it sets into this flexible 'shield') but it alsohas such a natural finish, it's almost unbelievable. Most long wearing foundations are heavy, while Double Wear Light has light to medium coverage. I don't think it has a dewy finish - I find it to be more satin like. In any case, it is fabulous! I wear shade number 2, which is perfectly neutral (just the way I like it) and will suit fair to light complexions.

EVEN AND FLAWLESS SKIN - 05-03-2018 by

I dot a little bit of this foundation where i need it and it evens out my skintone, but it just looks like my own skin. The great thing about this is that it is very lightweight, BUT it lasts the whole day and doesn't budge. It looks so natural too.

One of the Best! - 05-03-2018 by

One of the best light weight, slightly dewey, yet long lasting foundations! It 'sets' but is flexible, so it never feels mask like. I have the colour 2.0 which is perfectly neutral. I love to mix it with liquid illuminator (either Becca's Shimmering Skin Perfector or MAC's strobe cream) and it never looks funky and doesn't split. It doesn't break me out even though I'm acne prone. Highly recommend it!!!

Hard to colour match but good - 21-02-2018 by

I have so much trouble with foundation but this one sticks better than most. Foundations usually just separate on my nose and leave me with foundation filled pores instead of even coverage. This still does that, but not as badly.

My only other issue is the shading. I'd need to mix two together to make the perfect shade and that's an expensive endeavour. Otherwise I'm too light, or slightly yellow.

So lightweight and long wearing - 19-02-2018 by

I'm a loyal user of Estee Lauder Double Wear but it was time to try something else and I'd heard great things about Double Wear Light from others with oily skin. This did not disappoint. It's lightweight and just a touch dewy but it's also longwearing and true to the claim it stays in place!

Excellent foundation - 08-01-2018 by

Love this foundation it's not as heavy as the original double wear but still gives excellent coverage and staying power
I usually have trouble finding a suitable shade but Estée Lauder foundations always seem to great to colour match
I recommend this whenever I can

DO IT!! - 19-10-2017 by

Perfect everyday, light coverage, blendable, heavenly foundation! Seriously cannot recommend this more. I made the mistake of trying another foundation for every day, but I don't think it could beat this. It's silky smooth, light and easy to put on. The colours match wonderfully. This tube is 100% wortth it's price.

The Holy Grail! - 18-10-2017 by

Skin Type: Oily through T zone
Main Skin Concern: Dehydration.

If you have been looking for a foundation that stays on all day but still gives a 'skin' finish, this is the foundation for you! I am extremely oily through the T Zone and I don't like the heavy look some other long wear foundations offer (for example the original double wear). I have worn this foundation with Laura Mercier translucent setting powder (amazing) and Laura Mercier Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder, it lasts all day with both. I have also mixed the foundation with a bit of The Ordinary's primer when I'm wanting a really natural finish; the foundation has still lasted all day. I have found it looks best when applied with a stippling brush or Beauty Blender. This is my forever foundation, I will definitely be repurchasing it

Stopped Using It - 24-07-2017 by

I’ve used this foundation many times, but have moved away from it, as there are so many better options. It’s too drying on my skin and it doesn’t look flattering.

Holy Grail - 06-02-2017 by

After a journey that took almost 2 years I finally found my HG foundation.
I have an oily T, especially my nose, and normal on the rest of my face.
Nothing else has ever lasted on my nose as well as this. All I do now is blot with tissue probably 3 times in a 10 hour work day. No more powdering. It totally stays put and doesn't lift when I blot.
I hate hate hate the original Double Wear. This works so much better and is much more natural. I use a damp sponge to apply.
It still has that dry...ish sticky...ish feel once applied like the original has but it totally stops feeling like that after a few minutes.
Its so much easier to apply than the original too as it just applies like a normal liquid foundation. So much more malleable.
Its a shame this one is called Double Wear Light as I think it being connected to the Double Wear name puts people off when its an incredible foundation.
Won't melt off your oily parts and won't look cakey on your dry parts.
Buy this... you will not regret it!

Routine... I apply this foundation & concealer then with the same damp sponge I apply the Laura Mercier translucent powder just on my T zone and under eyes, I then apply the rest of my makeup. I end with a good 4-5 sprays of my MAC fix + all over my face then 2 sprays of L'oreal Infallible setting spray just to my forehead and
This gives me a matte but glowy finish and lasts me through an 10 hour work day with honestly only blotting my nose, sometimes forehead and chin, no more then 3 times. If I actually had the energy after a 10 hour day I would totally be able to go out with out having to re do my face... maybe just a re powdering of my nose with the Laura Mercier.

Amazing - 22-11-2016 by

It does take a few minutes to dry that is the only con. I normally use maxfactor, maybelline, loreal and they go orange, this didnt it stayed the same color, didnt transfer, very lightweight i forgot i was wearing it. My skin feels soft and hydrated. I am not using cheap brands anymore.

Amazing - 22-11-2016 by

I like how light weight this is, it doesnt turn orange like every other makeup i use (maybelline rimmel loreal), doesn't transfer, it is only a sheer coverage tho, so keep that in mind, doesn't go shiny or change color, definitely will buy again, not using cheaper brands anymore.
