Best foundation for extremely oily skin


I have acne, acne scarring and extremely oily skin. I've been searching for my holy grail foundation for over 10 years, and I'm happy to say that this is it! It keeps me matte for the entire day. Yes... even my excessively oily skin... Something I thought was not possible with any foundation on the planet! I can't believe how good this is. The coverage is full, so my acne and acne scarring are covered up pretty well too! My only issue with it is that it can feel a little heavy on the skin if you're wearing it all day, but I don't mind that too much.

Most Helpful Criticism

Too heavy for daily use


I personally find that it has too much coverage and is way too heavy for daily use, but it's nice when used sparingly for special occasions or nights out.

  2. Skinlike


    One of my favourite foundations. It has such good coverage and a little goes a long way. It looks extremely skinlike and lasts quite a while on the skin.
  3. Stays in Place!


    Amazing full coverage, completely covered my acne scars and red blemishes. As advertised, it definitely stays in place all day, I once wore it for 18 hours and it didn't smudge or fade at all. Only downside is it is VERY thick, which I guess I should have expected since it's designed to provide full coverage and stay in place. Would recommend this product if you need to your makeup to last all day...

  4. Super high coverage


    This foundation is very high coverage and will cover all discolouration, however the texture is thick and too drying for my skin. I prefer my base products to be light and moisturizing and this one just isn't for me!

  6. Favourite foundation


    Love this foundation so so much! It's the only one that lasts me all day and night without leaving me looking oily. Makes my skin look so smooth without looking cakey!
  7. The best foundation ever!


    I have tried a lot of foundations and this is by far the best. It stays in place as it states and leaves my skin looking great. I get compliments and asked which foundation I use, even from my dermatologist.
  8. Best foundation ever!


    Covers every imperfection, long lasting, new shades are amazing. Highly recommend!
  9. One of my favourites


    This is one of my favourite foundations, it glides on so nicely however it does dry quickly so you have to work fast to blend it in. The coverage is amazing and very buildable! It last all night even if you’ve had a big night out my makeup still stays in place the next day, love the range of colours also. Highly recommend if you like a full covered matte foundation, worth investing in.
  10. My fav foundation


    Great coverage and dries matte, so I don’t even need to set it! Not a bad price either, will buy again!
  11. Great Great Foundation!


    Honestly, I love this foundation. It comes in a shade that ACTUALLY matches me! I also like that this foundation can be used in different ways. I like to sheer it out with a sponge and use a glow-y primer underneath and the finish is beautiful, but it also looks great when used with a brush to get full coverage. I don't have any problems with it looking thick or cake-y, but I always build it up in...

  12. Love!!!


    Love this foundation so much! Applies so smoothly and doesn't separate on my oily skin even after a long day or night. Can be applied lightly for a sheer look or as full coverage.
  13. Lasting power but very thick


    This foundation lives up to its reputation for its lasting power, especially when used in conjunction with an EL primer. However, I found it was quite thick and heavy to use on a daily basis - probably better for special occasions. It also has a matte finish and may cling to dry patches of your skin. I prefer a dewy finish so I would probably not repurchase.
  14. Heaven

    Brooke elise

    So this is by far my fav foundation ever best coverage and I don’t need to set it if I don’t want to because it mattes right down and I’m greasy baby.
    Adore is the only place to stock my colour which is AMAZING
  15. The best foundation for full coverage


    I need a full cover, I have red red red cheeks and this is one of the only foundations that does cover my redness without causing my eczema to flair up. I try to save it for special occasions because of the price, but this combined with tarte shape tape is a great combination.
  16. Love this foundation!


    Love this foundation for special occasions as it gives the perfect coverage and does not look cakey. It looks so skin like.
  17. Simply the best


    This is the best foundation!

    I made the switch two years ago and haven't looked back.

    The staying power means I can put in on the in the morning, confident that I won't need a touch up during the day.

    Great coverage without the cake, I was hesitant to spend so much on foundation but it lasts forever. I get months from a bottle despite wearing it every day....

  18. Definitely stays in place!


    I love the long wear of this foundation! It can be a little heavy for day use, particularly on dry skin but it does exactly what is says with longevity of wear. I can work a 12+ hour day and still have nice coverage at the end. I occasionally mix it with a little bit of serum foundation to give lighter coverage and it still sits beautifully by the end of the day.
  19. The best foundation ever


    I’ve been using Estée Lauder’s double wear foundation for about 3 years and not only does it have full coverage, it also lasts all day. Feels great. I get great comments about how good my skin looks when wearing it.
  20. Best for oily dehydrated skin


    ive tried literally everything on the market. Giorgio armani, all the nars ones, urban decay etc etc. I always come back to this one as it has it all three - coverage, doesnt transfer, stays matte all day and doesnt melt.
  21. AMAZING !


    The best full coverage foundation I've come across. Skin looks covered and flawless overtime. Somedays when I want a medium-light coverage I just add a couple drops to a BB cream.
  22. All time favourite


    I’m yet to find a foundation better than this. It has very full coverage. Comes in really light shades which is great for my fair skin. The only downside is you have to buy the pump dispenser separately
  23. My best friend


    This is the best foundation I have ever used. It gives you full coverage, great colour selection (I use shade 3w1.5 fawn).it covers my pigmentation and dark circles in one application. It stays for 16 hours without looking cakey. Even My colleagues commented on how good my makeup looks after wearing this foundation for the first time . I love love love it.
  24. Holy grail


    Hands down my absolutely HG foundation, I've never been able to stray and try other new brands. The times I have, I immediately go back! It is a bit sheer so you may need to layer, but it literally lasts ALL day and night.
  25. Go to foundation


    This is my go-to foundation. The only foundation that stays on my skin all day long and doesn't go patchy!
  26. Flawless


    I switched from a loyal Clinique foundation wearer to die her double wear! Lasts all day or night, beautiful finish and doesn’t cause breakouts or blotchy ness.
  27. Fussy girls BFF


    I can't stand makeup transfer and this seriously does not budge. I'm Indian and find it so so difficult to find my shade and this is one brand that actually has it. I hate the smell of foundation and guess what? this doesn't smell like budge. Stays on all day without creasing.
  28. good formula


    For someone with acne prone skin, this covers my skin beautifully and doesn't look heavy if you apply it using a tapping motion on moisturised skin
  29. Love this foundation!


    This foundation is fantastic glides on nicely and easy to apply. Doesn't oxidize after hours of wear or shift. Perfect for my sensitive skin and doesn't sink into my face lines! I have some blemishes and scaring which covers really well and is build able for extra coverage. I use the double stay powder on top to complete the look with a matte finish.
  30. For special occasions


    For me this foundation is good for special occasions or for going out when I like to go a little more dramatic with my makeup. It really covers everything!! I saw my friend wearing it on a night out and had to ask what it was because her skin looked flawless. I would say this isn't good for daily wear/natural lighting scenarios though, as it can look heavy and it also sinks into my smile lines
  31. The best


    The best longwearing foundation on the market - doesn’t irritate acne, and is fine for dry skin when you’re hydrated w skincare underneath
  32. My best friend!


    Have used this product for more years than I care to remember. Friends say that as you age , so must your foundation.I find that with a properly moisturised and primed skin this foundation still works wonders. No caking, no transfer just a great look all day. I will not be switching.
  33. great coverage


    love the coverage this foundation gives, but doesnt make me feel cakey or anything. i like to use this when im wearing a full face of makeup esp when going out.
  34. The best foundation ever


    I have tried a lot of foundations yet this is the best. it is a bit heavy for daily use but can be mixed with moisturizer still, it has a great cover, breathable, no shine, hydrating, and long lasting.
  35. flawlesss


    my favourite foundation of all time!! a little goes a long way and leaves me with such an airbrush finish.
  36. Great for a full coverage look


    This product is AMAZING for a night out or if you are looking for a full coverage foundation. This does oxidise though, so I would suggest getting a lighter shade as it could get quite orange. The only negative is that it does break me out, but that may be because of wearing it for a very long time throughout the night/day. I would certainly suggest this to anyone looking for a full coverage foun...

  37. My go to


    Have loved this foundation for years! It's the only foundation that doesn't swipe off my face especially my nose, it honestly lasts all day and night. It sets matte but can make it glowy with a hydrating spray and primer. A little goes a long way and the product lasts me ages so it's worth the price. Will always come back to this, big love!
  38. cakey looking


    Totally not for normal to dry skin. This make me look dryer even with hydrating primer. I can only use it in very hot summer.
  39. Amazing


    I wear this when my skin breaks out or looks uneven. It blurs it really well
  40. The best foundation I've ever used


    I usually buy cheap foundations however this time I decided to try a more expensive one. Based on the reviews, I have just bought Estee Lauder Double Wear.

    I will never go back! I can't believe how amazing it looks on my skin. I'd always had problem with caking on my forehead and always put it completely down to dry patchy skin. Caking is no longer an issue. The foundation also lasts...

    I have been buying this for a long time...Only need a little bit as the coverage can be thick....small amount... Im 47 so i only use what I think I need....
  42. Amazing coverage


    Love this product by estee lauder, full coverage if you want it to be, long lasting and looks flawless. Thanks adore beauty for stocking it!


    I have been using this for over 5 years - nothing every compares. Oily skin girls... this is the only foundation that will work for you
  44. Holy grail for oily skin


    I'd give this product more stars if I could. My holy grail foundation for oily skin!!! I've tried SO many foundations for oily skin, and this is the only foundation to look the exact same at the end of the day as it did when I put it on in the morning. A couple touch-ups throughout the day if it's an extremely hot day, but otherwise it's perfect for anyone with oily skin. Worth the price.
  45. SO gooood


    Imagine the coverage of MAC studio fix and the weight of sheer coverage. This foundation covers all my blemishes, random acne and pigmentation without feeling like I'm wearing 100 layers. I really do recommend this product as it looks and feels great to wear.
  46. Best oily skin foundation!


    Absolutely love estee lauder double wear. For an oily skinned girl it works wonders on my skin. Doesn't make me a shiney mess by the end of the day. Lovely matte finish & full coverage without being too heavy. Worth every penny if your in the market for a full coverage foundation. Would definately recommend buying a pump for it though to make it easier to dispense.
  47. Amazing coverage and staying power


    If you're looking for a great full coverage foundation that won't wear off - look not further! This is by far one of the best foundations I've ever used and I'm always so impressed with the results. It lasts all day and never needs to be touched up or reapplied. It may be a little too much for someone with very dry skin but I think this is a great option for most other skin types!
  48. Bridal Make Up


    This product lasted through laughter and tears on my wedding day!
    My skin also looked flawless in photos.
  49. A match for the dentist


    Ever had your makeup come off on the gloves of the dentist rifling around in your mouth? Well, double wear doesn’t do that, it stayed put so well that the dental nurse asked me what I was wearing.
    This is amazing for oily skin types, the oil seems to rehydrate it but not let it slip off your face. If you’re dry or have any form of texture, make sure to prep and hydrate to the MAX.
  50. Amazing


    By far the best foundation I've tried for my very oily skin. Although it's quite pricey, I find it worth it. Love that it's transfer proof, and lasts all day!
  51. Amazing

  52. Just Amazing things !


    Have yet to find a better foundation than this one. Amazing coverage, without looking too cakey.
  53. Amazing staying power


    This is the best foundation I’ve used in terms of staying power. This doesn’t budge. A bit heavy for daily wear (try the Hyrda matte) but great for special occasions!
  54. Great full coverage


    I got this not expecting much but it defiantly is a full coverage without having to use much at all! Doesn’t feel heavy doesn’t make you feel like your wearing any make up. I usually buy cheap makeup and am always scared to touch my face but this doesn’t smudge I can touch my face and not end up with a hand full of foundation :D
  55. 10/10


    I couldn’t love this foundation any more. It’s perfect. Always blends into my skin like silk and covers almost any breakout. I almost always have someone compliment my makeup when I’m wearing this foundation. The price is great too it lasts a long time. Be sure to buy the “pump” with it
  56. Best coverage


    Want full coverage from morning to night? Then this is the best foundation for you. The matte finish helps keeps the shine away on my forehead that I experience in the afternoon from other foundations, I will be buying this again.
  57. good foundation


    My favourite foundation. It looks amazing after 10 hours of wear: doesn't settle in lines or pores and it's absolutely non-transfer.
  58. Best All Day Foundation


    I have been using this foundation for 8 months and it is my absolute favorite. I can't see myself ever purchasing another brand. Stays in place all day and gives me great coverage.
  59. Holy grail foundation


    This is my go-to for going out/events, when I want my skin to look as flawless as possible, for as long as possible. Probably a little bit too much for every day, though. I have combination skin that gets oily after a few hours and this stays in place 12+ hours (I set with Urban Decay all nighter and Laura Mercier powder). I think it works best applied with a damp sponge (I like to squeeze out mos...

  61. The best foundation for full coverage


    This foundation was my best friend when I was struggling with acne a few years ago. I have tried so many full coverage foundations, and this is hands down the absolute best one out there. It covers everything up without looking cakey or clumpy, and can easily be mixed with a bit of sunscreen or primer for days you don’t want a full coverage look. Also, it does not make my super sensitive skin b...

    This has been my go-to, trusty foundation for several years and I will likely forever continue to repurchase it. It has full coverage without being cakey and stands the test of time on my skin unlike any other foundation...with or without a primer. I have combination skin; while my cheeks can get quite dry, my t-zone (especially nose) can get incredibly oily and after 4+ hours, every other foundat...

  65. Wore for 8 years!


    This has been a staple in my makeup for the last 8 years. If one of the colours is too light and the other is too dark, which was the case for me, i bought both and mixed it for the perfect colour. A little goes a long way. Great for oily skin. Doesnt transfer like other makeup.
  66. Superb!


    This is THE BEST foundation I have ever used. I live in QLD and when summer comes, all foundations just slide straight off my face by mid-morning - no matter what primer I use - EXCEPT this! It is the best! If you want a foundation that will not slip, this is it!
  67. Nice Finish


    Good finish, a little can go a long way. A nice matte finish; however, can make product appear a little more dewey with primer and highlighter.
  68. Buildable coverage, good go-to foundation


    This is a fantastic go-to foundation for anyone looking for buildable coverage and a matte finish. I do find that it can get a little flaky around my mouth and nose after wearing it all day, so perhaps not the best option for those with dry skin.
  69. NOTHING compares to this beauty


    This is the best foundation! Its so good for all skin types and because of its texture, i can mix it with BB cream when I have days I don't want it to be heavy. I love it!!!
  70. good formula


    I apply a very thin layer of this when my skin is breaking out and doesn't look that good. This makes my skin look better and natural
  71. Not what I expected


    I got this after reading so many great reviews and I was disappointed with the product. It was so heavy I felt like it was dry paint on my face. It does definitely stay all day but I was worried about what my face looked like during the day because of how it felt.
  72. Love this product


    I have oily skin, large pores and can easily get breakouts sure to my history of cystic acne, so being particular with my make up is a must. Over the last couple of years, i've stuck to mineral makeups, just because they have had the least effect on me, but I was introduced to Double Wear a couple of months ago, and have fallen in love. It's not full coverage, but it's close enough. It stays on so...

  75. Love love love


    Best foundation you will use! I reserve it for special occasions and going out as it has great coverage and longevity even for oily skin!
  76. My holy grail!


    I have worn this foundation for almost 10 years. It is absolutely amazing. I'm so glad they've recently introduced the lighter shades in Australia because I am so pale.

    It stays in place all day, like concrete. I'd recommend hydrating your skin a lot first if you are on the drier side, I often use a bb cream underneath just for the extra moisture.

  77. Best foundation there is


    This foundation is great for people with problematic skin really good coverage but doesn't clog and cause break outs and literally lasts all day!
  78. Like it but don't love it.


    I like this foundation for the staying power but unfortunately I find it too matte and powdery looking. I do prefer more of a glowy/luminous foundation.
  79. Great coverage & Perfect colour match


    I have used Estee Lauder Double Wear many times. I do like to try other brands but I always come back to this foundation because Encru shade is the perfect match for my skin. I would give it 5 stars except that it doesn't glide on as smoothly as other foundations. You have to make sure you have moisturiser or primer on.
  80. THE BEST


    This is my all time fav foundation! I've worn it for the last 4 years! I find a little goes a long way so the bottles last for a while! I mostly where it for a full face of foundation, but find it lasts all nice with the right primer and setting spray! Makes my face look smooth and shiny!
  81. Great for oily skin


    Loved this foundation so much, stays on all day and looks flawless!
  82. Long-wearing, long-time fave


    My absolute all-time favourite foundation. Applies flawlessly, rarely creases and has the exact shade to match my skin. I find it's perfect for a natural everyday look or a heavier nighttime look and lasts the entire day.
  83. HG


    HG foundation if you have oily skin and like full, long wearing coverage. Nothing compares.
  84. Works well for oily acne prone skin!


    On my second bottle and I am loving it, goes on silky smooth and has buildable coverage. I have light to medium acne and it does a decent job of covering those problem areas even just on it's own. I have very sensitive skin and breakout easily but this has never broken me out or given me any skin related issues. Dries on a silk matte finish and no need for touch ups throughout the day. A easy recc...

  87. Always reliable


    This is the foundation to top all foundations. Full coverage and can be built on. Great for oily or combination skin. Won't wear a different one.
  88. Stays In Place


    This is by far the best foundation I have used, always come back to this one. Builds so well and stays in place all day!!
  89. Best Coverage


    I have been using this for years (Fresco ) and have never found anything that compares.

    - Lot's of shades to choose from
    - The bottle goes a long way, as you don't need alot
    Would definitely recommend.

After spending years of trying to find a foundation that looked good, stayed on & didn’t make my sensitive skin react (trying so many brands from cheap to expensive) this is my favourite!

    I always seem to come back to this foundation, I use a few others here and there but this one has always been the best for all day wear. My skin is a little oily and a little dry in different spots so I get good coverage with this foundation & it keeps me glowy but not shiny. Love it
  94. Go to foundation for many years


    I have used Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation for as long as I can remember. Once I started using it, I couldn't find anything that compared. It has seen me through my younger oily skin days, now to my drier skin as I approach my 30s (with a good moisturiser underneath). It is full coverage (which I love) so you need to apply quickly. I find my fingers work best. It lasts all day. Sometimes I to...
