Most Helpful Positive

This is such a good foundation especially if you're looking for a super long wearing formula! perfect for special occasions and photographs really nicely. I have dry skin and i havent found it clings to dry patched like other foundations can.

Most Helpful Criticism

I used to use this product and found it good coverage and good for oil control, but did tend to clog pores and cause break outs for me. Also, the shade / look / coverage did not look natural, it did look heavily made up when wearing.
  1. Good coverage

    Good coverage and blends well. this foundation covers my blemishes nicely and feels nice on my skin. I have given 4 stars only because you need to buy the pump separately and as this is a glass bottle, you need to turn the bottle upside down to get the product out and way too much comes out without the pump
  2. love!

    This is such a good foundation especially if you're looking for a super long wearing formula! perfect for special occasions and photographs really nicely. I have dry skin and i havent found it clings to dry patched like other foundations can.
  3. love this

    If you use an appropriate amount, it gives skin the perfect level of full coverage without looking heavy or powdery. It is smooth and blends very well. Excellent for photography!! Also great for night time. The formula is wonderful
  4. Great Product

    Great product and does not dry out skin. Love the coverage.
  5. Perfect for oily/combo skin!

    Love this foundation! I was previously using the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation and made the switch because that one was way too dewy for my skin type. Since switching I’m amazed that my skin stays matte through the whole day (but not dry), which is the best! No need to powder or touch up throug the day. Also amazing colour correction and covers blemishes. Will definitely repurchase!
  6. Worth the price tag!

    Love this foundation. Longwear without looking cakey, doesn’t cause breakouts. Little more expensive but worth it for sure.
  7. Perfect for events

    This is the perfect event/night time foundation. Really covers everything and is full coverage. Natural looking too.
  8. Holy Grail foundation for my oily/combination skin

    I've been using this foundation off and on for decades and sometimes I forget how good it is until I start using it again. On my oily/combo skin, the coverage, finish and wear time are outstanding. I've tried many other foundations, including the other variations Double Wear, and while they all have their particular strengths, it's this original Double Wear foundation that consistently keeps its place on my 'ride or die' list. This is the only foundation that I can apply early in the morning and it will still look good at midnight, even in high humidity.
  9. Great

    This is amazing, long lasting but still looks good even after nightshift. I've got oily skin and it controls the oil perfectly with incredible coverage. Doesn't rub off when it's on but is easy to remove at the end of the day. This is my go to foundation, love it.
  10. Best!

    This is one of my favourite foundations ever! I switch between this and NARS sheer glow and I love them both just the same. Great buildable coverage and blends beautifully into the skin leaving a gorgeous natural finish
  11. The best for full coverage

    I have found this to be the best foundation for full coverage. It stays on all day and night (and if I am naughty and don't take my make up off before bed, it is even still perfect the following morning!)
  12. Good Coverage

    This is good coverage foundation, i used the shade matching tool as I usually wear Clinique foundation (the anti-blemish) and got the perfect shade. I was looking for a change as I’m getting older and am finding the Clinique to be a bit dry in winter time. I have no complaints with the formula or the wear time but I absolutely hate the bottle it comes in. It’s hard to get the right amount out and I’m clumsy and have tipped it over a few times while doing my makeup and for the price you really don’t want to be wasting a drop! It’s a great foundation and so far hasn’t broken me out or irritated my sensitive dry/combination skin.
  13. a good product

    It can work all day long and will no feel dry.
  14. great for combo skin

    Very nice foundation - works well to control oils, but still doesn't cake up on dry spots. My combo skin loves it!
  15. Great foundation when you want coverage

    I usually prefer a lighter foundation for my dry skin but this is my go/to foundation for events or times when I want coverage without looking dry and cakey. Would definitely recommend.
  16. Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Makeup

    l have never used Estee Lauder as its at the high end in the price for me for makeup but after first use and the comments l have received on how much younger l look l will not change brands ever. The liquid double wear is as it says it lasts all day and l highly recommend this to anyone and being older and not the best as doing makeup you cannot mess up applying this. Best there is and won't ever go back to any other brand.
  17. Lasts an 8hr nursing shift

    Hands down the best foundation that I've ever used.
    It even has survived an 8hr nursing shift without melting away
  18. Great

    I have used this for years. Best foundation out but can dry your skin out a little.
  19. Best Foundation

    Ive tried a-lot of foundations due to having oily skin and this is the best one yet! Medium to full coverage and doesn't feel heavy on the skin!
  20. Withstands the Darwin humidity

    Living in Darwin you will hear many women say there's no point wearing makeup because it sweats right off (usually true). But I have applied this foundation at 3.30am for work, returned home by 5pm and it is still in place, no shine and no worries. 100% swear by this!
  21. excellent

    this foundation is amazing! It blends so easily and leaves a flawless look on my skin! The coverage is perfect and it is so lightweight! I definitely recommend!
  22. This foundation changed my life

    This is by far the best foundation that I have ever used. I have been using Estee Lauder Double Wear for about 2 years now and it's never let me down. The staying power of this foundation is unbelievable and all I use under it is moisturiser. A little goes a long way. I bottle usually lasts me almost 6 months and I wear it most days. highly recommend a beauty blender for this foundation.
  23. Holy Grail

    I tried and tried to find a cheaper dupe for this, and consequently binned heaps of duds. Gave up and rebought my old fave and will never go back. Perfection in a bottle, so long as you get the correct shade. I actually kissed it the moment I applied it again. Mwwwa!
  24. Amazing product

    (black hair, blue eyes, combination skin and extremely fair, my shade is 1N0 -porcelain).
    I love this foundation, great staying power and can be worn full coverage or medium to light (mixed with sunscreen/ moisturiser during the day). It has a beautiful satin to matte finish when not set and matte when set. My only negative is the flash back when wearing it at night but I can look past it due to how beautiful it makes my skin look. I’ve tested it’s staying power at festivals, clubs, concerts etc and it stays beautifully. On hot summer days I recommend Sheering it out due to sweating (hot Aussie climate) but that could just be my skin.
  25. Pretty good

    Not the greatest coverage, however has a natural look to it for everyday makeup
  26. Perfect

    This is an amazing foundation and I can find a shade that matches my skin. The coverage is also amazing and it lasts all day long
  27. Best full coverage foundation out there

    This is hands down the best full coverage foundation out there, I have tried so many others but I always come back to this. Its perfect for both Dry and Oily skin as my friends swear by it as well. Its a classic and will be my go to foundation forever, If you like a lighter foundation try the Nude version i bought that as well and its perfect!
  28. Great coverage

    I found the colour range for this foundation very natural and true to skin tone. Great coverage and buildable without looking cakey.
    Good staying power also, particularly with the use of a good primer
  29. My go to

    This is my go to foundation. I use it almost every day. I just love it. It really blends into the skin, and is quite full coverage. You can adjust the coverage by applying more or less as you choose. I feel like when wearing this foundation, at some point in the day, I forget I am even wearing it.
    I love the colour, I love the texture, I love the way that it is easy to apply.
    It always looks good.
    Would highly recommend. It lives up to the hype.
  30. Best product

    I just love this foundation.it stays there for so long and makes my face more glowing
  31. Fantisic Cover for those with bad acne !

    This product has amazing coverage for my acne and stays on all day. Even if your face gets a bit wet it stays on very well. high recommend it. The only flaw is after wearing it for a while it can start to feel heavy but that can be over looked when the cover is great.
  32. Holy Grail!

    This is the best foundation I’ve ever used! It’s got a great coverage without looking cakey. Nothing else has compared.
  33. mmm

    I used to use this product and found it good coverage and good for oil control, but did tend to clog pores and cause break outs for me. Also, the shade / look / coverage did not look natural, it did look heavily made up when wearing.

    I have combo skin, I use this foundation only on weekends when I am going out and it does not move!! Photo's perfectly and even when I get hot and sweaty it still does not move!

    I am fair skin but use: 2W2 Rattan because I tan most weekends.

    This product does not have a down fall!
  35. My go to for a night out or a long day

    Seriously stays on forever. May need a bit of a powder touch up during the day but coverage is so long lasting. My go to for a wedding or for the races. Beautiful coverage too
  36. One of my faves!

    I like to try different foundations in the hope of finding something miraculous and find I ALWAYS come back to this one. I have combination skin and find I don't need a powder over the top. Will no doubt keep buying :)
  37. Holy grail!!

    I love this foundation so much! I have been using it on and off for 5 years now. I always branch out and try new foundations but always end up back with this. It lasts ALL day and covers my imperfections perfectly. Only downside is the spf can cause flashback.
  38. Full coverage!

    This foundation is awesome for full on events where you want dramatic makeup. It is so full coverage. Can look a bit flat though, so I add some Giorgio Armani fluid sheer highlighter to it to give it a bit of a glow.

    I cant even express how much i love this foundation! I have oily skin and constantly had acne with previous foundations that i have used. It has the perfect coverage and stays on my face ALL day without getting the tiniest bit oily! I can't recommend this foundation enough! It's changed my life! Please don't ever stop making it!!
  40. Stays forever!!

    Such a high coverage and will stay on for eternity if you let it. Perfect for huge nights out where you don't want to worry about a blemish popping out or it coming off at all.. it wont!
  41. Amazing and natural coverage

    Love this product! Full coverage but still looks very natural on my combination skin. I wouldn’t wear this every day though as I find it a little too heavy, but on nights out it’s a must.
  42. Good coverage but cant find a shade that matches

    I love the DW and find it to be quite good as far as coverage goes. It can be a little drying so I find it necessary to exfoliate and use a good moisturiser underneath. I haven’t been able to find a colour though that matches my skin tone so I have moved to Lancôme Teint Idole instead.
  43. Awesome

    for my oily skin, this high coverage foundation covers all of my acne and redness without clogging my pores
  44. Love it so much

    This foundation is amazing! Perfect coverage and so easy to blend
  45. Love it

    The only make up i have bought more than 3 times. Best make up i have used and i have tried ALOT. Will continue to buy
  46. Amazing coverage

    I have tried so many foundations to cover blemishes and one that’s suitable to use with my dry skin and the double wear has hands down been the best. The coverage is amazing and I found its long lasting too
  47. Only foundation I will ever use

    This is the only foundation I will ever use. Stays put all day, No transfer. The only foundation I have tried that does this for me. Build able coverage and 2c2 pale almond is a perfect match for me
  48. Great

    This foundation is very high coverage and last through sweat and heat all day long. Great shade range too
  49. Full coverage and long lasting

    Lasts all day and provides full coverage! I don’t find it cakey but you can definitely tell you’re wearing makeup.
    It’s a lovely product, I would recommend if you’re looking for long lasting, full coverage
  50. Lovely

    this is a fantastic foundation its great for oily skin but doesn't dry out too much
  51. Lovely

    Love this foundation its so good and such a good coverage!
  52. excellent

    perfect foundation and amazing coverage i love it so much you can wear it all day and it doesn't come off at all
  53. thick but great coverage

    i have acne scars and rosacea . this is great at evening out my skin and making sure no redness peaks through. i do however, like to mix other foundations into this like KOH GEN DO aqua foundation because it can feel very thick and heavy. doesnt break me out which is a plus. has been my go to for years.
    dry skin STAY AWAY. make sure you freshly exfoliate and moisturise before use
  54. My favorite

    This is my special occasion foundation. It covers everything and lasts all day. Love love love
  55. Cult fave

    This is a cult favourite for a reason. Stands up well in hot humid climates. Wish it was a tad lighter/thinner. I mix 50/50 with another foundation to make my perfect base.
  56. Holy grail foundation

    I have been using this foundation for over 2 years and I absolutely love it! I have oily skin and this baby has never let me down, I’ve worn it to work on 12+ hour days, it’s lasted through games of netball, any weather, any situation this foundation will last! It has a beautiful full coverage and is comfortable in the skin. It does not emphasise any fine lines or texture.
    I recommend to anyone with oily skin who wants a full coverage, long lasting foundation
  57. Fantastic

    Love this product it’s really good and such a good coverage
  58. Amazing

    This full coverage foundation is perfect for day and night wear, stays on all night and doesn’t move or crack. Best foundation ever!
  59. Long lasting

    I have used this foundation for years. Its the only thing that lasts on my oily skin and covers my scarring. It doesn't feel too heavy on the skin and blends nicely.
  60. Great coverage that's about it.

    I love the full coverage but this foundation is just way to heavy on the face. Very thick and if your not careful after you have finished all your makeup application can look quite cakey. Not a fan.
  61. Loved the formula

    Very full coverage with a light feel. This is exactly what i have been looking for. Will keep buying it again and again
  62. Best foundation!

    Best foundation for oily skin and lasts all day!
  63. Thick and extremely full coverage

    I should say that I've ventured into using lighter coverage foundation over the past year, as I realised that I've started spending more on skincare and was fortunate enough to have clear skin. While I had the best skin in my entire life, I was wearing this foundation and other very full coverage foundations, and this amazing if you want a perfect, photoshopped base. But, I started getting more breakouts, which I hadn't experienced in years and went back to using this foundation, and found that my preference really changed as I started loving a natural, dewy finish, and found that this foundation is too full coverage and matte for my liking now. I also found that it can tend to look cakey quite easily if you aren't more careful and very light handed, but the positive is that it lasted a really long time. The shade range is also AMAZING, love that there aren't just warm and cool toned shades, but also olive toned shades, which are rarer to find as they just get labelled with warm or cool with other brands. I think if you prefer full coverage foundations and find it harder to find your shade, I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this foundation!

    I don't have a bad word to say.
    Full coverage, very buildable, oil free, dries instantly, does not transfer and it lasts 24 HOURS!!! This foundation beats all others, I cannot find a dupe for it and nothing lasts the same on my face. This is the best thing since sliced bread.
  65. One of the best foundations I’ve ordered

    As a die hard Mac Studio Fix fan, I decided to take a risk and try this foundation. Boy am I glad that I did! Great coverage, stays all day and doesn’t sink in to any fine lines. I would strongly recommend for anyone who loves Macs Studio Fix but wants something that is a bit more durable during the day!
  66. great for my redness. very thick though

    i do love this because i need it to cover my rosacea, its quite thick so it covers everything BUT you need to be extremely moisturised or itll show EVERYTHING.
    does feel like your wearing makeup. i like to mix with KOH GEN DO aqua foundation to give it a little dewy life to it as it does tend to look flat since its so matte. i have oily acne prone skin
  67. Good long-wearing foundation

    The shade range in this foundation is excellent, with a good range of different undertones too. This does not budge - my skin is combination/ oily in the T zone. I like it, but do prefer sheerer coverage bases now. This is perfect for photography or if you want your makeup to last all night
  68. Very thick

    I always use medium to full coverage foundation to cover my blemishes so this double wear is great for that. I wouldn't recommend for everyday use as it's very thick and cakey. Needs to be rubbed in a lot more than other foundations. Coverage is definitely great, I found it works best if you mix it with a lightweight foundation.
  69. So good

    this product is amazing, just the right coverage and very light and nice on my skin.
  70. Staying-power

    As long as I haven't layered skin care underneath, this foundation is sweat proof even in Australian summer which is why I keep returning to it. It doesn't achieve a natural look though.
  71. Best full coverage

    Absolutely love this foundation. Best full coverage on the market. Highly recommend if you need something that lasts.
  72. Amazing!

    I purchased this foundation after finding my normal to dry skin was showing too many fine lines and using my usual mineral powder as I near 30. The reviews steered me towards double wear and I am blown away with its stay in place formula, it doesn't move and my fine lines are barely visible! I paired this with the double wear concealer.
  73. Best foundation in the world

    This is the most coverage and the best $$$ for what you get. It is not recommended for dry skin however, i add moisturiser and primer and use it. It is full coverage and it doesn't go on peoples clothes when i hug them ! 100% recommend.
  74. Needs pump

    Absolutely love this! I've tried many other foundations and none have compared to this! This manages to control oils (T Zone) while not drying out my dry areas (cheeks). By the end of the day, the finish is gently dewy but still looks put together. Wish it had a pump sold together
  75. Recommend

    This is my favourite foundation I’ve use it for so long now. It sets well on my skin And a little bit goes a long way. And it literally lasts all day without going patchy or gross! Always my fav
  76. A go to daily foundation everyone needs!

    I am 19 years old with the occasional breakout here and there, but suffer most from pigmentation issues and scarring predominantly on my cheeks.
    I have been using Double wear since I was 16 when I had super oily skin, and to now where I have combination skin, and over all these years the product remains flawless on my skin!
    I can wear this product for hours (once more than 20 hours), and lets just say it looked as good after 20 hours as it did when I put it on!
    This product whilst a little pricey, goes a very long way, not much is needed to provide a full face foundation which means the bottle lasts a long time for me.
    This product can be easily built up in coverage an can be sheered out very easily if mixed with a moisturiser, making it a very versatile product.
    This product also has a wide range of shades and under tones making it a good match for nearly all skin tones.
    My only issue is regarding that when you purchase the foundation, it doesn't come with a pump which means that you either have to buy the pump for what i believe is $10ish or just pour it out which can get quite messy!
    Overall, love this foundation and would highly recommend to anyone.
  77. Best Foundation

    This is by far the best foundation I have tried so far. I've been wearing it regularly for the past few years and I am constantly amazed at how long it lasts. I have very pale skin and wear the shade 1N1, but it doesn't make me look ghostly like many pale foundations do. It's definitely a full coverage foundation, however I've never found it to look unnatural or cakey and I get lots of compliments on how smooth and nice my skin looks whenever I wear it. Compared to other brands, it's actually extremely good value because I've tried brands that charge $80+ for foundation and they are nowhere near as good.
  78. Number #1 foundation!

    I have been using this foundation for probably 5 or more years. I can't go past it. I've tried others but they just do not compare! I love how you can use just a tiny bit for a light coverage (yes ladies, save your money and stop purchasing sheer or BB cream) or use more and have full coverage!

    I have normal-oily skin.
  79. All time fave

    No other foundation compares to this. I can apply at 6am and still look good at midnight!! It’s the only foundation for me that does what it says
  80. Great foundation

    I always go between this foundation and Mac. It’s a great everyday wear and stays on all day. I’ve got dry skin but I don’t find this is over drying on my skin like some other foundations are.
  81. Always come back to this foundation

    I have gone through several bottles of this. It's the longest lasting foundation on my oily skin that I've tried, without being drying. I still get oily very quickly, but I blot throughout the day and the foundation stays in place. The coverage is easily adjustable from sheer to full coverage, and looks beautiful on the skin. 1N2 Ecru balances out the redness in my quite fair skin. Never any issues with oxidation or colour change. Kudos to Estee Lauder for offering such a wide range of shades. I wish it would come with the pump.
  82. Full coverage

    This is a complete full coverage foundation it will cover everything and blends so so well. I would not use this on a daily basis as it can be a little heavy looking

    I cannot recommend this enough. It is quite literally the best makeup product I have ever and will ever come across. I stopped using it for a few months because I couldn't afford it but the money is sooooo worth it. A little bit goes a long way and no foundation will ever ever ever beat it.
  84. Amazing coverage & lasts forever

    I love this product, great coverage and lasts all day.
    The only downfall is the flashback.
  85. Amazing

    The only foundation I can wear. I’m extremely oily and somehow this foundation keeps my skin barley oily all day with a beautiful smooth finish
  86. Love it!

    This is such a great foundation, i can't fault it. It's easy to apply, with a blender or your fingers, and once it sets it looks beautiful. It doesn't dry out my skin, and it doesn't look cakey either.
    Everything i think i might try a new foundation just for the sake of it, this always pulls me back.
    Thanks Estee Lauder - nailed it!
  87. Long lasting and full coverage

    This foundation changed my life! It’s full coverage, long lasting and leaves the perfect matte finish! Even after exercising or swimming it still stays in place. Would definitely recommend!
  88. Gave me bumps

    I'd had so many friends rave about this and went to get a tester, used for about a week and my jawline broke out in bumps and it felt really itchy, stopped using it and it went away. Works for some just not for me sadly!
  89. Full Coverage

    If you want full coverage then this is the foundation to buy. It is known for its full coverage and quality. I have been using this product for over 4 years.
  90. Cannot fault

    This stuff has been amazing and the only foundation I don’t have to mix colours to get my match. I’m oily combo skin and this stuffs bloody brilliant. Always looks flawless and always get compliments on my skin while wearing it
  91. Broke me out

    Not my fave thing. I found my skin was really congested after using it!
  92. Gorgeous

    This is a really gorgeous foundation (and I’ve tried a few). It doesn't clog up my pores and was able to cover my dark circles. Definitely recommend to anyone with dry/oily combination skin. It’s too heavy for me to wear everyday but for going out or special occasions it is really hard to beat.
  93. Very heavy

    This foundation is extremely heavy. It’s a foundation where you can clearly tell you’re wearing foundation. It dries into fine lines and makes lines appear where you didn’t even know you had them! I’m not a major fan of this, it makes my skin look older than what it actually is!
  94. Best long wear foundation

    I’ve used this foundation daily for YEARS and LOVE LOVE LOVE it. I love the full coverage, the staying power and natural-looking yet matte finish. I recommend applying immediately after using a moisturiser and primer (I use NP Auto Pilot), which helps it blend evenly and set the best. I often receive compliments on my skin (which is not great!) while wearing it. I also have a habit of touching my face during the day, and find this foundation helps prevent smearing, slipping and transfer onto clothes etc (even after the gym!). I find an oil makeup remover/cleanser melts it away easily in the evening, and I follow with my usual face cleanser as I used to have acne prone skin.
  95. Amazing full coverage!!

    My favourite foundation i love is how it is full coverage and how it smooths over any dryness around my nose, and its gorgeous finish. I also find that the longer I wear it, the better it looks! I didn't even think that was possible!
  96. All time favourite foundation

    This product is my favourite foundation. I've been using it for years. There is a colour to match me in winter and even in summer. Wears perfectly for a full day of work. Always get compliments on my skin and i know its due to this foundation.
  97. long wearing, favourite foundation

    This is my favourite foundation ever..! I have fairly normal skin with a slightly oily tzone. This foundation lasts all day without fail, it feels quite light on the face and doesn't slide or settle into creases. I do find it can become slightly streaky when applying with a stipple brush and doesn't spread as far, so I like to apply with a beauty blender. Very full coverage without being cakey.
    I do think there is room for improvement on the packaging as there is more waste than I would like.
  98. Great coverage

    Love this foundation, I've used it for years because of its amazing coverage and staying power.
    They have a brilliant selection of shades that I go between during the different seasons.
    Would recommend to anyone that like a full coverage foundation.
  99. The best foundation hands down

    I'm yet to find a foundation as good as this. When a new and exciting product comes to market I will purchase to see how it compares, but am always let down and return to my Double Wear.
    This lasts all day and night, doesn't move, no need to even set with a powder. Just put on and let dry.
    Amazing coverage, that can also be buffed in for a more natural look.
    For drier skins, it works well if you prep your face with a nice hydrating serum and nourishing moisturiser.
