Most Helpful Positive

Forever my favourite


I’ve been using this for so long now and absolutely love it!
I work long 12 hour shifts and by the end of the day it’s still looks amazing!

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.
  1. Forever my favourite


    I’ve been using this for so long now and absolutely love it!
    I work long 12 hour shifts and by the end of the day it’s still looks amazing!
  2. Best foundation


    Full coverage
    Stays in place
    Lasts all day
    Best foundation that I've ever purchased, applies easily and is great for day-night wear
  3. full coverage, doesn't budge


    Have been using this for almost 10 years and will continue to repurchase! doesn't budge even in extreme humidity and can be used either sparingly for everyday or full coverage. huge colour range for all year round and lasts for months.
  4. Nothing compares!


    I have done my thorough research, both online and actually on my face and nothing compares to this bad boy!
    Even over SPF it still sits beautifully and doesn't budge. I honestly won't ever stray from it as it is quite possibly the best foundation ever and has been for the past 8+ years!
  5. My go to


    This foundation has been my go to foundation for years. Full coverage without feeling too heavy on the skin
  6. Too much hype!


    I’ve seen better drugstore foundations, this is a bit too heavy for me for everyday use and I find my pores have been clogged from using this. Nice for occasion wear though!
  7. Best foundation ever!


    Lasts all day and into the night. Full coverage. The original
    And the best!
  8. Great in tropical weather


    I have been using this foundation for a couple of years now and am always impressed with how it wears. I use it with a primer and never feel the need to use a setting powder or spray as it sticks really well without the need for extra products. This is also the only foundation I have had success with while on holidays in Thailand. It stays put even with all the sweating!
  9. Full coverage - yes. For dry skin - no.


    This foundation is definitely full coverage and many of my friends love this product.

    However, I have dry skin and this looks cakey for me. It shows skin textures that I didn't know I had.

    It also feels thick on the skin.

    I much prefer Armani Luminous Silk
  10. OG Foundation


    This is the best foundation on the market if you like a full coverage look.
    Will last and look perfect for the whole day, doesn’t cling to dry patches and once it is set with loose powder, it won’t crease.
    Loved by make up artists particularly for bridal makeup, and I personally believe it is reasonably priced in comparison to some other foundations on the market.
    Plenty of sh...

  11. Amazing for oily skin


    I have very oily skin and this is hands down my favourite foundation for long lasting wear that requires little to no touch ups. I am a makeup artist so I've tried a lot of 'long-wear' foundations and this is by far the best. Perfect for any brides-to-be that want their foundation to look flawless by the end of the day.
  12. Breathable full coverage foundation


    For a full coverage foundation, this one is very easy to blend and build up at targeted areas. A great long lasting over 12 hours. Only a bit of shine at T-zone that you can powder it down or not, keeping a nature glow if you like. It has the makeup appearance on the face since it is a full coverage foundation, but not cakey.
  13. A classic favourite


    For years I have been using this foundation for event makeup. Nothing beats it. It stays put for hours and looks so flawless on the skin. Perfect for weddings, nights out, parties. Wish it had a pump though!!! It gets messy

  15. 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.
  16. Love, love it!


    I've used this product for years Nd live it. It stays all day and always covers my pigmentation. I've tried other more expensive foundation over the years but always come back.
  17. Holy grail


    Tbh I don't know what i'd do if they ever discontinued this foundation. I've been using it for the past 5 years. I occasionally try other foundations but always come back to this one as its the only one that actually lasts all day even on my crazy oily skin! So much love for this foundation. It is quite matte and full coverage but doesn't look cakey at all!
  18. Best ever


    Have gone through sooooo many bottles of this, been using it for years! Makeup is still perfect at the end of the night
  19. Stays on all night


    I love this makeup for any occasion, particularly when I’m going out.. because it stays on and doesn’t move.
    It’s a full coverage that covers all redness and covers pores well too because of how thick it is.
    I find it blends perfectly if I have a good moisturised base on but it can get very dry at times.
    The colour is amazing and natural looking, I haven’t found another foundatio...

  20. Favourite foundation

    Bridget B

    This is my go to foundation. It has great coverage, lasts all day and comes in a shade light enough for my skin.
  21. Perfect for oily skin


    Perfectly for oily skin, not for dry skin.
  22. Stays on even with a mask!


    I work as a nurse and looking after COVID 19 patients for 12 hours a day. FULL tight face mask and head shields.

    All I can say that after 12 hours of wearing that equipment, running around a bed space in an airtight negative pressure room sweating up an absolute storm my make foundation still looked as fresh and flawless as it did when I put it on that morning! stay in place makeup do...

  23. High coverage long wear!


    Perfect for a buildable - high coverage long wear makeup but it is still very lightweight and has a flawless finish with a dewy appearance.
  24. super long lasting and blends well


    diverse shade range , i was able to find a colour that matched my neck tan , and is super high coverage
  25. 24 hour lasting power


    ELDW in 1W1 is my go-to foundation for big events for its hold and flawless coverage.

    I apply using a beauty blender which seems to keep it malleable for longer than when using a brush due to the quick-drying nature of the Double Wear.

    Frosted glass packaging is nice but would be nicer with a pump.
  26. Can’t live without


    Stay in place - yes, full coverage - yes, buildable - yes, many shade options - yes. I have acne skin and can’t live without this product. It’s been on my shopping list for 15 years and I have no plans to stop buying it.
  27. Flawless


    This foundation is flawless. I can’t fault it because it does exactly what it describes and if you find the right shade, you just can’t go wrong. There’s a reason why there’s so many positive reviews.
  28. Best foundation I’ve tried – just not for everyday use!


    I adore the coverage, colour and texture of this foundation, but for me it’s not for everyday use. While I enjoy a high coverage look, this seems to clog my pores and can cause small breakouts if I wear it too often. As a substitute, I’m now using double wear light daily which has been a great alternative.
  29. Fave foundation


    I’ve been using this foundation for 30 years and still love it as much as the first time I tried it. Full coverage, hides imperfections, blends beautifully with a matte finish. Available in lots of shades for both winter and summer colours. Highly recommended!
  30. Heavy


    This foundation is very full coverage and heavy on the skin. If you do not like heavy feeling foundation then this is not for you. Overall it is an alright foundation and a little goes a long way.
  31. Love this so much!


    I had seen reviews for this foundation and was hesitant at first to buy it as I can get very oily skin.
    But I am so glad I did!!!! This is my new favorite foundation and at such a great price too.
    I have found it hard to find foundations to completely work with my oily skin but this is long lasting, does stay in place and definitely keeps me oil free.
  32. Love this


    Matches skin type
    Best coverage, never used a foundation like it
  33. Silky smooth FULL COVERAGE


    This foundation delivers FULL COVERAGE. Sometimes I don't even need to go in with concealer on breakouts because this covers it. Also doesn't feel heavy on the skin. And like it says it lasts all day. I usually will put it on at 5am and go to work and then gym and get home at 10pm at night and it still looks in place!
  34. Stays on all day


    This is by far my favourite foundation. It has the best staying power and never goes patchy on me. Love that it is full coverage
  35. Love it

    Zia jade

    Have been hooked on this foundation since I first tried it a year ago. It lasts sooo long, gives such good coverage and is affordable for a big brand ! Love it thanks
  36. good coverage


    this foundation has a lot of hype and theres a good reason why. the coverage is so great, i always tend to go toward this foundation when i go out at night or whenever i need more coverage and want my foundation to last longer. the glass bottle feels great and luxe. the foundation consistency feels light and doesnt make my skin feel cakey, the coverage is definitely buildable.
  37. Good coverage, but not good for dry skin


    Good coverage, but not good for dry skin
  38. Always come back to this one


    After many years of using the Estee Lauder Double Wear and trying other foundations, I always return to my faithful. I mix the Dawn and Buff colours for my perfect colour. I find that this and the Porefessionals primer worn together are a winner for gorgeous skin and for longevity.
  39. Best oily skin foundation


    Coverage and matte all in one! Asian skin, i wear sand in winter, ecru in summer.
  40. nature


    I really love it, it helps me to control my oily skin all day!
  41. nature


    I really love it, it helps me to control my oily skin all day!
  42. Solid Foundation


    I bought this as I wanted to try a fuller coverage foundation. I also purchased the little pump applicator as I much prefer to use pumps for foundation. I found this foundation difficult for me to blend at first because it sets incredibly quickly. However, once I got the hang of it I quite enjoy the coverage it gives. I have been mixing it with a little illumination drops as well because sometimes...

  43. great, but not my favourite


    I loved the full coverage element of this cult-favourite foundation. Although, I think the matte finish of this foundation was just a little too matte for my dry skin and I found that it did grab to dry patches. I think this would be better suited to people with my oily skin instead...
  44. full coverage


    thick full coverage makeup. I love how it covers flaws but be careful to layer thin layers only to look natural
  45. Favourite


    Double wear is my all time favourite foundation and it stays on ALL day!! I’ve tried others but always come back to this. I use it as a concealer when I don’t want a full face of make up
  46. The perfect foundation


    This is my HG foundation, love the way this makes my skin look. Doesn't sink into my pores or accentuate fine lines like a lot of other foundations. Keeps oiliness at bay, doesn't separate and only requires a light dusting of powder to set. If they ever discontinue this foundation or mess with the formula...I don't even want to think about it!
  47. Amazing coverage!


    I used this product for nights out, dance competitions and special events. It is VERY full coverage especially when I have acne around my cheeks. The only downside is the shading and oxidisation. I found most the shades to have a weird orange/red tint to it and they would darken after about a minute on my skin. This could be because I maybe got incorrectly shade matched, but just something to be a...

  48. Amazing Coverage


    I used to go through so many different foundations, always wanting more and always falling back to Double Wear. This foundation has that second skin affect, covers every imperfection and lasts all day! The only flaw I have with it is that it is quite drying but with good skincare it is amazing! Iv been using it for years!!
  49. Holy Grail Foundation


    I wear this foundation religiously. I wear it everyday to school (I'm a teacher), and it never moves. Its full coverage and gives you a nice even finish. I have tried other foundations in the past and none of them match this quality. I couldn't give it five stars only because I have combination skin, dry cheeks and oily T-zone and it really drys my cheeks out. However, it really controls my oily ...

    This is the foundation of all foundations. What can I tell u coverage yes, long lasting yes, dewy skin yes, beautiful skin yes. I refuse to use any other foundation in the world. I have been using this for 3 years straight, which is really good for me considering I'm the type of person that likes to always try something new, but not with this why would I further seek when this ticks every single b...

  51. Excellent staying power


    I finally purchased this foundation, and it certainly lives up to the hype! This foundation has amazing staying power, something I have been searching for for years. The coverage is amazing. The only issue I have with this is the shade I purchased is way too light, even though I used Findation and purchased "Shell." I am extremely pale, but this made me look as white as a ghost. I will definitely ...

  52. Great coverage


    I have been using the liquid Estée Lauder Double Wear for years. I have tried other brands but are never as good for lasting coverage.
  53. My go-to


    I have been using this foundation for years and have tried others in between but always come back to Estee! I use the 2N1 Desert Beige for when I don't have a tan on, and the Tawny colour when I have Bondi Sands tan on. There are so many shades to choose from that you are guaranteed to find a match for your skin tone. It lasts all day, and does not make my oily/combo skin break out! 5 stars!!
  54. If you want a stay in place full coverage... this is it!


    Full coverage, tick!
    Great colour, tick!
    Stays in place all day, tick!
    Great for oily skin, tick!

    You can build this baby!!
  55. Perfect Coverage


    My favorite foundation. able to build up coverage and doesn't block my pores
  56. Good foundation for problematic skin


    This foundation is excellent for blemished skin, great coverage and will dry down for a semi matte finish. I loved this foundation in my teenage years when i wanted to cover everything, however now that i am well into my 20s i prefer something more natural that allows my skin to show.

    If you have an event that you will be photographed this foundation is one of the best.
  57. Great for events


    Extremely full coverage foundation, perfect for events such as weddings formals ect.. doesn’t budge stays put for hours! Can look a bit flat so highlighter is definitely needed
  58. Not what I expected


    I wanted to change my foundation routine and decided to deviate away from the foundation I had been using for years to try this one out. This product has always been the hype so I was super excited to try it out for the first time. Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy it much at all. Coverage - meh. I'm a full coverage girl and found this foundation, although buildable, didn't achieve what I thought it w...

  59. Great foundation


    Its a great foundation, a bit heavy feeling on the skin, more suited to winter but still a great foundation.
  60. Great every day base!


    This is a really nice feeling foundation. Not cakey at all, just glides on seamlessly and provides a nice every day light coverage. I'd wear something a little more full coverage for evenings, but for a great base while still letting your skin breathe, this one is magic.
  61. Holy grail foundation!


    This does NOT TRANSFER! I bought this when I first started dating my (now) boyfriend because I was sick of his beard wiping my makeup off when we kissed. Problem solved, seriously.

    Sweat proof, great natural looking coverage, and great colour match! I LOVE!
  62. Love this !


    Love this and it’s coverage for my oily skin
    Lasts longer than other foundations without shining
  63. lasts all day!


    Can build up the coverage depending on the event. Lasts all day/night! have come back to this foundation every time.
  64. Best heavy full coverage foundation


    I don’t really like full coverage foundations but this one is natural and has a seamless finish. Great for everyday
  65. The best I've used


    I'm still yet to find a foundation that looks exactly how u applied it, 12 hours later...
    Honestly the best foundation.. Doesn't transfer. Loooooong lasting. Doesn't feel or look thick on the face.
    I prefer rit best applied with a beauty blender than a brush. But a brush also works okay.
    Theres really no need for setting powder either. This foundation is amazing.
  66. Good, not great

    Hannah P

    So many people love this foundation but I just cant! The coverage and staying power is amazing but I find the shade range doesnt suit my skin tone.. it's either too pink or too yellow!
  67. It really stays in place!


    I bought this to wear when I have all day events, so that I wouldn't have to worry about touching up my make up.
    It really really stays in place all day!
    The only thing is that when you first put it on, it looks quite dry, but looks better as the day goes on.
    Will continue to buy.
  68. Best longer foundation


    I loved this for years as it gives great coverage without being heavy and thick and it really, REALLY stays put and lasts the whole day. You can apply it in the morning and not worry about your makeup for the whole day. Need to work quickly when applying as you wont be able to blend it once it dries.
  69. An oldie but a goodie


    I’m still yet to find a foundation better than this!
    Great coverage, long lasting, and one of the only foundations that doesn’t settle in to creases around my eyes and nose throughout the day. Definitely needs a powder over the top to set it. Wish it came with the pump as standard too!
  70. Amazing


    This does not crease on certain areas of my face where other foundations do. My face gets oily in 3 hrs but with this foundation, it can even keep me pretty matte till late evening. Love it
  71. All time fave


    By far the best coverage, longest wearing foundation. Easy to blend and apply, literally last forever.
  72. BEST full coverage


    My holy grail foundation! Full coverage covering my pigmentation and doesn’t highlight my pores.
  73. Perfect for oily skin types


    Long-lasting foundation that is perfect for people with oily skin. When applied in the morning there is minimal to no signs of oiliness by late afternoon. I found it to only provide medium coverage for the blemishes on my skin, even after trying to build it up. With a good setting powder and spray it looks amazing! I also found the Try Findation to give me the perfect colour match.
  74. Oily skinned girls best friend!


    This is a game changer if you have oily skin and will not budge the entire day. It can be finicky though so i can see why some people might have some issues with it. It is very full coverage so if that's not your thing then you probably won't like this. I use it with a beauty sponge so it tends to sheer it out a little. It also can grab to certain dry spots as it is a matte foundation. If my skin ...

  75. I ADORE this product


    There is a reason this product has raving reviews, its AMAZING. I will never purchase a different foundation, it lasts all day, is never patchy, and does not dry out my skin or cause breakouts. If I wear this to work all day and go out in the night I do not need to touch up my makeup. I use a moisturiser under this foundation and that's all I need for a flawless face.
  76. Game changer for oily skin


    Best foundation I have found for my oily skin. Other foundations seem to slide off however, this one stays put right up until I wash it off on the evening. So happy I found this!
  77. Can't... br-br-breathe


    This is a super full coverage foundation but it is so heavy on my skin. It really feels like all my pores are clogged and I have a sheet of paint on my face. It takes a while to get used to it. I repurchased this bottle once but I have since discovered other full coverage foundations that aren't as heavy on my skin. The scent is also quite overpowering. I can see it working well for people with su...

  78. best foundation


    I've been using this foundation for years & will never buy another brand.

    Only one I've tried that actually stays on all day

    Feels great on my skin, it is thicker than most but once you work out the right consistency you will realise you wont need alot. If you purchase the pump that goes with it, its alot better.
    totally worth the money.
  79. Oily skin saviour


    Best high coverage foundation for oily skin it lasts all day even without a setting powder on me.
    It doesn’t make the pores look big and it’s non drying
    The only thing is I wish it came with a pump
  80. Amazing


    Such an amazing product! Very moisturising and perfect coverage for everyday look. Definitely recommend
  81. Stays on all day!


    This makeup has been the best for my oily skin. I work 10-12 hours day and don’t have to re apply throughout the day and I don’t look oily by the end of the day.
  82. Double Wear


    Have been using double wear for a very long time now, make up stays perfect even after a 5K Marathon. Feels so light on my extremely sensitive skin Love love love It!!
  83. My go to foundation


    I love this product. It doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin and gives good coverage.
  84. Nice Coverage and Finish!


    Absolutely love the coverage!! Lasted through an entire humid day-and I wasn’t shiny. Application was easy, smooth finish, and didn’t look patchy at all. Will be my new everyday foundation.
  85. Longest lastest foundation out there


    This is amazing for a night out, nothing lasts nearly as long as this. Only good for when you want the fullest of coverage and your skin isn't too dry as this sucks the moisture out of my skin.
  86. extremely easy to blend


    Estee Lauder Double wear is one of my fave foundations. It is super full coverage and is extremely easy to blend. It has a flawless finish and lasts all day with our touch ups.
  87. Really Stays on


    I've been using this foundation for work and going out for over a year now and it really does stay on and still looks great at the end of the workday. Also, it doesn't rub onto anything so you can safely greet people without accidentally smudging your makeup onto someones shoulder!
  88. New lightest shade is a great match for pale skin


    I am so pleased Adore is stocking the new lightest shade, it's a great match for those that are lighter than MAC NC 15.

    The OG holy grail of long-wearing foundation that will last through anything.
  89. Love it!


    It lasts all day or night and doesn't separate or melt off even in the heat on my very oily skin.
    Definitely my favourite foundation on a big night out. Love it!
  90. Buildable and great coverage

    Bea O'K

    Great coverage foundation with added bonus of spf 10+. This product lasts me for awhile because of the coverage from just a small amount. It's buildable if you want to go full glam makeup. Colour shade matches well. I only wish it had a pump to dispense it.
  91. Great


    This looks flawless on my oily skin and holds up like no other product. However, after using retinol at night, this foundation can look a bit dry on my skin during the day but love it regardless
  92. Fave


    This is a cult fave for a reason. To be honest it's a little too heavy for me and can cake easily if you aren't careful so i mix 1 pump of this with 1 pump of a lighter foundation for my perfect fountain. Lightweight and full coverage. Humidity safe
  93. La la la love!


    Like just la la love this! Immaculate immaculate & immaculate. It's just fantastic I loved it
  94. Love


    The Double Wear foundation has been my go-to for a few years now, especially during Australian Summer! The foundation doesn't budge and it is perfect to wear on those long days in the office to after work drinks.
  95. Perfect skin but drying


    I have used this for years (1N2). I never really had issues until the last 6 months and it seems that it is just too dry for my skin which is sad. Great product though and gives you beautiful skin
  96. HG


    The holy grail of full coverage foundations for oily skin. Stays in place, not an ounce of transfer and absolutely no shine. How do they do it?!
  97. Stay in place has no place in my heart.


    Luckily I received this as a sample, because even though I'd heard great things about it, and I've used and liked their skin care, this foundation did nothing for me.

    To be honest, I find that foundation is not always that great for me, in terms of finding the right shade for my pale, fair skin, and having it not irritate my super sensitive, redness and acne prone skin type. Down righ...

  98. Great


    This is perfect for my oily skin. With other foundations, my skin looks like a grease ball after a few hours
  99. Worth the money


    I have combination skin and some foundations don’t last long, this sat well on my skin and didn’t melt off. It can be a little thick so a blender or brush works well.
  100. Love how it stays all day


    This is so far the best foundation ever. Literally it lasts all day without creasing!! I have combination skin and it looks flawless
