Never looking back - 16-07-2018 by

This is the perfect mattifying foundation with high buildable coverage that NEVER looks cakey and stays put.
I absolutely adore this formula and recommend it to anyone who’s looking to branch out to a new foundation.
Nothing compares - you only need a dime sized amount and for the price, the bottle lasts ages.

Stays all day - 13-07-2018 by

I always find myself coming back to this foundation. Its full coverage, blends so well into the skin and stays on all day! I rarely need to touch up when I use this foundation.

Great for oily skin - 13-07-2018 by

You need to try this if you have problems finding a foundation that separates in oily areas. This is the first foundation that I have ever used thy hasn’t separated on my t zone. The coverage is amazing but doesn’t feel Cakey. And the first long lasting foundation that has actually lasted all day on my oily skin. I love it !

Never rubs off - 12-07-2018 by

I love this foundation, and have used afterpay to be able to afford it because I will not settle for anything less than Estee. I have had throughout my life, dry, oily, and combination skin types depending on age and weather, and this has worked every time for me. Its mattifying so perfect for oily skin, but has never dried out too much when I've had dry skin, which I have right now. Its buildable so you can choose whether you want regular or full coverage. Also works with most primers, never had an issue. I wear this to work and out clubbing, and it is hard to get off. Youll have to use makeup remover. Great with a buffing brush, dont reccomend use with a sponge

I love this product - 12-07-2018 by

I am a 49 year old woman and have had to change me foundation over the years as my skin has changed. I absolutely love this product. I find it non oily and stays on all day and gives me a lovely natural coverage.

Great for oily skin, even in summer - 12-07-2018 by

Holy grail for oily skin. The only foundation I repurchased multiple times. Definitely stays in place after setting with loose powder. The only foundation that stays on my face, rather than melting off as soon as I walk into the heat in summer.

Recommend for oily skin - 11-07-2018 by

I have combination skin. Super oily T-section and crazy dry checks. Foundation was beautiful on my more oily areas (still put a powder on top) but on my dryer areas looked a bit too cakie (with moisturiser on under and no powder)
Coverage on my acne was amazing though:)
Super fast shipping xx

Love it - 11-07-2018 by

This is the best coverage foundation. Im very fussy with coverage as i have freckles and this so light weight i dont need to apply more then once a day as it stays on. love it

Long lasting - 11-07-2018 by

This is my favourite foundation. It lasts all day and doesn’t make me go shiny like other foundations I’ve tried. It’s a great price and one bottle lasts me ages even though I wear it almost everyday. I love the little pump that you can buy with it which makes it even easier to use.

Love it - 11-07-2018 by

I've always struggled to find a foundation that would last the day & my nights out. Since discovering this foundation I have been so happy. The price is great. The variety of colours is exceptional and the coverage is be far the best. I have a fair complex, so to find a colour to match perfectly and lasts is perfect. Highly recommend this foundation!

Stays on - 10-07-2018 by

I love this liquid foundation, they have heaps of different shades for different skin which is helpful because I struggle to find a colour for my pale skin. It blends so well and stays on for so long. Although keep in mind it does have a bit of flashback in photos at night

Super heavy coverage - 10-07-2018 by

I bought this foundation after hearing rave reviews by beauty bloggers, youtubers everywhere. I have combination skin so I was looking for a foundation that stayed matte in my t-zone. I have slight pigmentation and scarring on my face but nothing that I care to cover up with foundation. This foundation provides very heavy coverage, it did keep my skin matte and lasted all day but the coverage is just too much for me. It felt very heavy on and I just couldn't wait to take it off! I prefer light-medium coverage because I want my skin to look like my skin!! If you prefer the heavy coverage that stays matte then this foundation is for you.

really good staying power - 10-07-2018 by

i'm usually iffy with foundation because i can never seem to find a colour that quite matches but this is the closest i've gotten. it's impressively long-lasting, particularly as my skin tends to be on the oily side plus living in a humid climate - i don't ever get the feeling that this is sliding off my face as the day passes by. overall, would recommend if you're looking for full coverage, long-lasting foundation.

Great for oily skin - SO FULL COVERAGE - 10-07-2018 by

Amazing go to foundation for my oily, acne-prone skin! It is so full coverage and it is matte so it controls my oils all day long. LOVE IT

New Convert - 10-07-2018 by

I have worn Revlon ColorStay for over 20 years. Yes! I've been too afraid to switch because it's got great coverage and has worked for my acne prone skin. Recently I've had the itch to try something new, so I decided to just go for the highly regarded EL Double Wear.

The foundation matching thing worked well, I am a Sand Beige in ColorStay and it picked out 2N1 Desert Beige in Double Wear - I was nervous to buy without swatching but threw caution to the wind. I was so relieved that the matching was so accurate!

The coverage is on par with ColorStay BUT it beats it out because it's buildable. My world is rocked. I have very oily skin but as I age I'm getting dry spots. I applied this over a moisturised and primed face after reading the reviews here, and thankfully I did so because even though I have oily skin it was brutal on my dry and flaking patches. I will be scouring my face to eliminate the flaking before I next do my face!!

I'm very confident after wearing this all day that it performs even better than ColorStay. I sweat and I have oily skin, and I don't want my makeup sliding off on to the collar of my shirts. Very impressed and glad I decided to buy this.

Best full coverage foundation ever! - 10-07-2018 by

I have combo skin but love a matte finish in a foundation so double wear is perfect! This is the only foundation I have tried so far that will last all day on my face without separating or looking cakey. Always looks flawless and covers blemishes amazingly if I need to. This will always be my go to foundation when I want a full coverage or I have a long day ahead and need my foundation to look perfect at the end of it!

hmmm.... not great - 10-07-2018 by

I have combination normal to oily skin and well this just looked really cakey and gave me a tonne of texture that I didn't have. Just really sat poorly on my skin. I personally would not use it and do not like it but I know others who love it. Dissapointed that it did not work for me.

Amazing - 10-07-2018 by

Love this product!
Gives me such great coverage, I have terrible acne and it covers it with easy, worth the price

Not for me, but good product - 09-07-2018 by

As a person with just a bit of redness in my cheeks to cover, this foundation is much too heavy and full coverage for my liking. Yes, it does have incredible coverage and staying power, but if you don't need that, then I don't think this product is good for you/everyday wear. In my hands ended up cakey and settling into my pores after a few hours of wear. If you need long lasting and heavy duty foundation then this is for you!

Awesome Foundation - 09-07-2018 by

This is one of my favourite foundations. I have dry acne-prone skin and it moisturises my skin and doesn't make me break out. It has a beautiful finish and lasts a long time! A+++

Good Coverage - 09-07-2018 by

This foundation has really good coverage though can get a bit cakey looking throughout the day.

Not worth the hype - 06-07-2018 by

I wanted to love this foundation as there was so much hype around it. Unfortunately, I didn't like it, I found it tends to oxidise and leave my skin looking orange. I have tan and combination skin. Its good for coverage but thats about all that I could give points for. Don't think ill be repurchasing.

Holy grail foundation! - 05-07-2018 by

Hands down, best foundation in the world! Both me and my sister love it, I have dry skin and she has oily skin and it's both our favourites! It's so so so so so long lasting, it will not budge! Such a beautiful medium to full buildable coverage with a satin finish.

Go-to - 04-07-2018 by

I really like this foundation. My skin is dry in patches but also oily in the t-zone. I've used this foundation for about 4-5 years now, and though I try other things I always come back to it. It's great coverage, terrific lasting power and doesn't oxidize. If you're not careful, it can look cakey - but applied with a beauty blender, you shouldn't have any problems.

great coverage - 04-07-2018 by

I really like this product, it provides great coverage and i love the matt finish. I have combination skin and most other products end up looking a little too shiny around the T-zone

10/10, foundation holy grail. - 04-07-2018 by

This foundation has survived eleven hour hospitality shifts, the inescapable sweaty mosh at concerts, rain, sport, and music festivals in the middle of an Australian summer. The most I ever have to touch up is maybe a bit of loose translucent powder in the afternoon after work if I plan to go out later. I have particularly oily skin, some breakouts and work in hospitality so I have well and truly been putting it to the test for the past few years and I can honestly say that this is the only foundation that I can apply very early in the morning and not have to worry about any fading, excess oil or cakeiness during the day. Coupled with the fact that I fake tan everywhere but my face, it's safe to say that I need a foundation that won't come off until I intend it too.

I apply with a damp beauty blender over a hydrating base (usually Innoxa Thirsty Skin moisturiser or Bobbi Brown Face Base) and set with the Nars translucent powder and it's good to go for the rest of the day. Once set with powder, the foundation is quite matte but once your natural oils start to come in (despite there being too many of them) it starts to look even better. Both liquid and cream products apply beautifully over the top as well. It doesn't 100% cover some of the more intense
redness in my breakouts but that might be because I tend to go for a very light layer.

I couldn't recommend this foundation enough to someone with oily skin and/or requires foundation that won't budge throughout the day.

Great full coverage skin! - 03-07-2018 by

When applied correctly this foundation is amazing! I have combination skin and I found I have to be careful when applying it or else it looks very patchy, so not great if you like to slap on foundation quickly. Saying that, it's perfect when applied properly and set with a setting spray! I buff it in section by section and it seems to blend nicely that way. I also put powder on my T-Zone so it looks perfectly matte at the start of the day, and just dewy at the end (but still full coverage!). The lack of pump is extremely annoying and since I used the whole bottle without one I think I went through the bottle quicker than I should've. Other than that it's a pretty amazing foundation!

my go to foundation - 03-07-2018 by

Amazing coverage that has staying power. I am a fully qaulified makep artist and recommend this product to all my clients... love love love

Love this - 02-07-2018 by

Super great foundation. Stays on really well. I have super dry and skin and does separate slightly by the end of the day. Still highly recommended.

Holy Grail - 02-07-2018 by

This foundation is definitely my holy grail go-to foundation! I'm currently on my second bottle and has lasted me ages! I only use it for special occasions when I'm tanned but reckon it makes my foundation flawless! I have very dry skin and have heard that it not the best for dry skin but I find it works for me, especially when I start with a primer! I use a beauty blender as well to put it on and think this makes it much more flawless! 10/10 recommend to anyone considering buying it!!

Amazing Foundation! - 02-07-2018 by

I have combination skin and had never experienced a range that didn’t leave my t zone feeling really oily (in saying that I’d only ever purchased the cheaper pharmacy brands).
I bought this product after a friend mentioned Estée Lauder for foundation; I came across double wear, checked the reviews and gave it a go and can’t see myself EVER looking elsewhere for a foundation.
Took a little getting used to as the consistency of the product once it starts to dry was unlike any foundation I’d used before but the moment I found my nack in handling and applying the product I was completely in love.
Coverage is fabulous and definitely LONG lasting.
I personally get a better result with a foundation brush but either way highly highly highly recommend!

The best - 02-07-2018 by

I love this for my oily skin. I still look fresh and not a oily mess by the end of a hot summer day.

OBSESSED!! - 02-07-2018 by

I am completely in love with this product. I bought it as I have a very warm skin tone and couldn’t find my perfect match. Now I have. The colour does not oxidise on my skin and it blends in seamlessly with my neck. I would highly recommend this to those ladies who find that ‘warm’ tone foundations in other brands oxidise on them and turn pink.

My ride or die product - 02-07-2018 by

Been using this for years. Humid and hot environment don't budge it. Kids and the occasional nap don't budge it. Oily skin doesn't budge it (just wipe or pat gently). Does mold to face and goes into pores but doesn't clog them. Doesn't oxidize and can be used with other powder ontop. Love it!

I've found my unicorn! - 02-07-2018 by

I love this foundation so much! I have tried many other supermarket products but nothing beats Estee Lauder double wear! I've just purchased my 4th bottle and I can assure you, it will not be my last. The coverage is amazing and for such a small bottle you get alot of use out of it! My skin does not look cakey at all and it lasts all day! And bonus, I don't get pimples with this foundation! 10 out of 10! Best on the market I reckon.

The BEST foundation for Oily Skin - 29-06-2018 by

This is the only foundation I wear, I have used it for 4 years now and every time a new 'it' foundation is released (targeted to oily skin types or long wear) I give them a go, but always -ALWAYS- come back to Double Wear. Nothing has compared! Not cakey, doesn't separate, lasts 12+ hours on my oily skin. Absolute HOLY GRAIL product.

Absolutely amazing - 28-06-2018 by

The best powder i have used. Perfect for dry skin and it doesn't make my skin looking dry or flakey. 100% recommend to anyone with dry skin.

Love love love - 27-06-2018 by

I love this foundation!!!
I have combo skin. This foundation is awesome . I have a lot of foundations! I’m kinda a makeup and skin care junkie lol. This is one of my favs!!!
This foundation stays on all day/ night . I work night shift and love how it stays on for my 10 hour shift beautifully .
I would recommend this foundation to any one . It’s so light it doesn’t even feel like your wearing any foundation at all.
Love it!!!

Love this foundation!!! - 27-06-2018 by

I have combination skin, my make-up would look oily after few hours with other foundations, but this foundation is amazing, I never feel oily again when using this, and don't need any touch-up as it lasts all day long. Will definitely repurchase it.

Great foundation - 26-06-2018 by

This foundation stays put all day and has great coverage, however I would set with some powder if you're skin is like mine and tends to get a little oily in the t-zone later in the day. Apart from that, it's great.

Fav - 26-06-2018 by

Will always come back to this foundation - super full coverage, and looks so even on skin. Could sleep in this, and wake up looking exactly the same

Wow - 25-06-2018 by

This is such a full coverage foundation, but so light on the skin. I am loving how fresh my face looks all day long wearing this foundation Definitely the best full coverage foundation out there.

Great - 25-06-2018 by

This was my go-to foundation for a while. However it started to separate on my nose in summer (sweat I guess), maybe my primer or powder clashing with it... Definitely better suited to a winter foundation or someone looking for heavy cover.

Excellent foundation for oily skin - 25-06-2018 by

As someone with oily skin I absolutely adore this foundation. It stays all day which is excellent as I do not have touch up constantly. Love it and definitely would recommend to anyone with oily skin.

Amazing product - 25-06-2018 by

love this foundation it’s the only one I have found that doesn’t come off and lasts all day long. I love it honestly my favourite I have been using it for 5 years now and don’t think I’ll ever change

Radiant, gleaming finish - 25-06-2018 by

While some foundations tend to coalesce in certain areas and look patchy as the day wears on this one lasts all day without fail. I find it works just as great when my skin is dry as when it's sensitive and more oily. It's coverage is definitely buildable and one can wear this foundation more sparsely or easily create a heavier look that is still natural. Can't recommend this product enough!

Medium to Full Coverage - 25-06-2018 by

This is a beautiful foundation if you want a medium to full coverage. You can build it up. I find it looks great for a long time however if it is hot or after a long time it can begin to slide off my nose however I do get an oily T-zone. It does give some flashback during photos with a flash at night time.

A great foundation - 25-06-2018 by

I've been wearing double wear for 8 years. It gives great coverage and can be worn sheer or can be built up to cover scarring and rosacea. I've got combination skin and this is the only foundation that stays on for 12 hours during a nursing shift..I wear the 1c0 shell, but my only improvement would be for Australia to stock the 1n0 porcelain. In winter I sometimes buy from the UK so I can get the lightest shade.

AMAZING - 21-06-2018 by

I use this product for an everyday look and find that it stays on all day without having to worry about reapplying or touching up. The colour is a perfect match to my light complexion

RIDE OR DIE, FOREVER - 20-06-2018 by

This is my favourite foundation ever. Cannot find a dupe that matches the quality. Definitely recommend you purchase the pump as it pours out fast and you end up with lots of wastage. in saying that, i have four bottle and haven't bought a pump. watch youtube reviews to make sure you get the right shades - i found it to be the most reliable shade source.

Best foundation - 19-06-2018 by

I love the double wear foundation. It does exactly what it says it does and stays in place. It is a great full coverage foundation which is very long wearing. As it is a heavier formula it is however important to ensure you prime well beforehand.

ALWAYS THE BEST - 19-06-2018 by

I LOVE Estee Lauder double wear! It never irritates my sensitive skin, I NEVER have to touch up during the day as it lasts all day long! I have tried other brands in the market, which make me break out or I am always applying coat after coat. Estee Lauder is easy to apply in the morning and will last!

Wonderful foundation - 18-06-2018 by

I love this foundation! I have been a long time user of Revlon color stay and recently purchased this in Cool bone. I have combination oily skin and need a foundation that will stay on my nose and still look good at the end of the day. This foundation is a great colour match to my skin and doesn't change colour and go orange after a few hours like some foundations. It works really well with Estee lauder mattifying primer and some setting powder to stay in place on my nose. I don't like the appearance of thick full coverage makeup and I think it looks great in a thin layer on the face. For day use I will mix a couple of drops of facial rosehip oil in it to sheer it out and make it look very natural. The only negative about this product is that I had to purchase a pump separately for it, and it should really be included.

Great coverage - 18-06-2018 by

Great for night wear, photos really well and feels nice on.

Truly an all day foundation - 17-06-2018 by

I've got oily skin so I aaaalways find my foundation disappearing throughout the day. But this product is true to it's name and really does stay in place!

Unbelievable product - 17-06-2018 by

I have never found another foundation like this double wear. It’s incredible, blends seamlessly, stays on all day without budging, doesn’t fade or oxidize, doesn’t crease or crack or settle into any fine lines and doesn’t get oily. I have normal skin with a oily t-zone and unlike with other foundations I have no need to blot or touch up during the day, I will get a good 10-12 hours wear out of this foundation with out a problem. I have gone through so many bottles and definitely so many more to come. Works best with the Estée Lauder pump. It is AMAZING!

Coverage PLUS - 14-06-2018 by

This foundation is a DREAM! All day, long wearing and easily blends for a seamless application. Doesn't clog the skin or cause breakouts if you have a good skin routine. For a lighter coverage, you can mix the Estee doublewear water foundation

Full coverage - 14-06-2018 by

I refer to this as "flight attendant" or "interview" makeup. It is when you want your foundation to stay put all day. Despite being full coverage, it is fairly light on the skin, so doesn't feel too heavy or cakey. Recommended!

The best! - 14-06-2018 by

Iv been using nars sheer glow the last couple years and have now swapped to this! Full coverage not cakey and looks so flawless, I use this and the Estée Lauder powder together I’m so happy! :)

Great coverage - 13-06-2018 by

I love this stuff! Gives great coverage and there is an extensive range of colours. This really does stay put all day, and does not feel heavy or affect my skin. Perfect for everyday, and buildable for special occasions.

Great coverage! - 13-06-2018 by

Love this foundation, best coverage that lasts all day, and it doesn’t break me out :)!

The best - 12-06-2018 by

I have dehydrated skin, just showing the first signs of aging. This foundation covers everything. I expected to feel tight and dry, but it just doesn’t. I prep my skin well, and it applies flawlessly for a full 12 hours. No dry patches, no transferring. My HG foundation, after literally years of searching.

All time favourite - 11-06-2018 by

This is bay far my favourite full coverage foundation. It stays in place all day and night and it also does not break me out. I could not rate this any higher. I have repurchased this more than 7 times and will keep repurchasing.

Best foundation for oily skin - 11-06-2018 by

This is my holy grail foundation for oily skin, it last on my extremely oily skin all day. It looks so beautiful on my skin, and I love it. The key is to blend it with damp beauty blender and use very little product at a time, so it won't look cakey. You can wear it without setting powder for more natural look, or set it with powders to make it last all day. Great color selection too, it actually match my skin tone perfectly. Highly recommended!!

Holy Grail! - 11-06-2018 by

Now that we can get 1C0 in Australia, I haven’t bought another foundation! Stays put all day, doesn’t transfer, controls my oils, doesn’t oxidise, I could go on forever!

Full coverage - 07-06-2018 by

My absolute go to foundation for a night out - lasts all night long! could even sleep in this foundation and it still looks exactly the same when you wake up!

Great for oily skin - 04-06-2018 by

I have oily skin and this is one of the few foundations I can use that lasts all day and doesn’t make me oily throughout day.

Love it - 02-06-2018 by

I love this foundation, it can be blended out with a beauty blender to make it look more sheer/medium coverage or it can be built up with a brush to full coverage! It hides all pimples/marks and it is one of the only true full coverage foundations out there - only issue is that is has flashback.

Decent foundation - 01-06-2018 by

I do like this foundation. It gives a nice finish and coverage. However, I find it oxidizes a little. I use the lightest shade and find it sometimes looks a little orange after a few hours. Although I do like it, I probably won't repurchase.

Actual long lasting foundation - 01-06-2018 by

Like many others, I have tried numerous foundations and none lasted the day. This is a foundation that no matter what I am doing is still looking good at the end of the day. I have skin on the drier side but still seems to lose foundation but this one lasts. Plus a little goes a long way.

No heavy feeling left on the skin and goes on smoothly. Matched really well with the concealer they have as well.

Best full coverage foundation! - 29-05-2018 by

Definitely the best full coverage foundation out there.

Like all the other reviewers I have tried countless different brands of foundation in search for this. Lasts all day (12 hours +) and even looks ok after a midday cardio gym session.
Skin type: oily/combination
Pros: Full coverage, buildable and long lasting
Cons: Can get cakey with dry patches or too much powder on top
Similar shades: I use 1W1 Bone (yellow toned) for pale Asian skin.Which is almost match with MAC Studio Fix NC15.

Favorite Full Coverage Foundation - 25-05-2018 by

I purchased Estee Lauder after trying SO MANY foundations that claimed to be "long lasting, full coverage". Nothing honestly stuck the full 9 hour work day and still looked fresh. So i decided to try Estee Lauder after reading alot of reviews, I decided to give it a go. I went to my local Myer and got the makeup artist to help match my skin tone color. I then ordered online, and was so thrilled when I received it!! It comes in a beautiful double walled glass bottle with a stunning gold lid. The formula itself is quite thick, so only a small amount is required, and you can build up from there if you want to. I apply with a damp beauty blender, which really evens it out nicely. It applies well, and honestly, it holds all day!!! No smudging, moving, or wearing off. I am really thrilled with this product, the only 2 things I would change is the fact you have to pour it out, which can make it hard to control how much you use, and the price factor, but honestly you pay for what you get with this product.

Wow - 22-05-2018 by

This is such a full coverage foundation, but so light on the skin. I am loving how fresh my face looks all day long wearing this foundation!

Full coverage goodness - 18-05-2018 by

This is a great full coverage foundation made by a old but good brand! I love this stuff for when I go clubbing because it lasts all night. If you want a good quality foundation, you have to get this one!

Favourite full coverage foundation - 18-05-2018 by

This is my absolute favourite foundation and the one I always reach for if I want a full coverage. It stays in place all day/night and still feels hydrating on the skin. Could not recommend this more

Works beautifully with no primer - 17-05-2018 by

Honestly I don't even bother using primer when using my DW. It sinks into my skin so well and looks so natural. I use the shade adjusting drops when the season changes and it doesn't affect the texture. High coverage and non-drying. This is my holy grail foundation.

An absolute must in my makeup bag - 17-05-2018 by

I could have written the previous review word for word.

I am constantly trying and have used nearly every foundation on the market and I always find that I come back to (or always have) my Estee Lauder DW.

It has the best staying power out of any foundation with a beautiful satin finish (IF applied correctly!). I use this every time I am heading out or have an event or want my foundation to last all day whilst providing at least medium-full coverage and beautiful-looking skin.

That being said - it does require specific steps to make sure it applies beautifully otherwise it will end up a dry patchy mess. Make sure skin is well moisturised and primed and then QUICKLY work the product into the face - I prefer fingers then a damp beauty sponge. This dries down way too fast to be able to apply on the whole face and work in, it must be done in sections. But when done like this, it is just the BEST foundation and skin looks like skin despite the fuller coverage.

As I've gotten older I find it does settle a little more into dryer patches or lines so I find it works wonderful mixed with moisturiser, serum or even other foundations and it will just sit more seamlessly.

Definitely recommend purchasing!

Still the best, even in 2018 - 12-05-2018 by

Honestly, I have tried EVERY foundation under the sun.
I will still always come back to my DW.
It is drying yes, this stuff is like paint. Dries down and does NOT budge. So I do often need to mix something in with it, even just a hydrating primer or a lighter coverage foundation.
I find it doesn’t mix well with silicon primers, so water based are definitely better suited.
Even with all its little quirks, I just can’t stop using it. It blurs my pores, covers beautifully, sets down all by itself and lasts ALL day (no joke).

Blend quickly with a beauty blender or finger, have well prepped, hydrated skin and you WILL love it. Promise!

Such a fantastic foundation - 08-05-2018 by

This foundation lasts all day and I don’t get shiny when I wear it. I have oily, textured skin and this foundation looks beautiful. Commonly foundations accentuate my texture but this foundation doesn’t. It makes my skin look smooth. It doesn’t grab to flaky patches either.

Still Using this Foundation after 8 Years - 08-05-2018 by

The only foundation that doesn't disappoint me. Every time I switch to a new foundation, I get disappointed and go back to Estee Lauder DW. It is the almost perfect foundation for girls that can't be bothered retouching their makeup after a few hours. I can work a full work day and not have to worry about my foundation separating, oxidising or revealing acne scars.

It can lasts up to 6-8 hrs on me before it starts fading abit.
Great coverage.I don't need to use concealer on my dark acne scars.
It doesn't oxidises
Variety of colours. The one I use matches well with my skin colour.

It can look cakey especially with my dry skin and it settles in my fine lines

Ride or die! - 08-05-2018 by

This is my go to, ride or die foundation! I've used it for 3 years and have tried other full coverage in between but nothing comes close! I know a lot of people think it's too full coverage but if I'm feeling a "natural" no makeup look, I'll just pop a tiny bit onto a beauty blender and dab away. If I feel like covering everything, I just use more. FYI, I have combo skin and this does look pretty shiny come the end of the day but if you're just going home after work, you can take it off, if you're going out, just touch up and away you go!

Not a fan - 08-05-2018 by

After always hearing so much hype over this foundation I purchased one and tried it out. I was definately underwhelmed , it’s maybe medium coverage and it oxidised a lot every time I use this. I don’t find it very buildable either. I use this as a last resort foundation if I have to but I won’t be buying it again. I really wanted to love this. My skin combo is oily/combination

Great full coverage foundation - 08-05-2018 by

This is the best foundation for full coverage! It will stay in place all day and does not oxidize.
It can be a little drying so make sure to use a hydrating primer underneath or moisturize well if you have dry skin.
My absolute go to foundation!

Love - 08-05-2018 by

LOVE this foundation. I've tried a range of foundations and this is by far the best. Better than nars luminous, stila, MAC, none compare to this foundation. Great coverage, lasts all day, I don't need to touch it up at all throughout the day. Does not break up at all like every other foundation I've tried. Does not aggravate my sensitive skin. I received a 10 day sample and went straight out to buy the full size as soon as I ran out and have repurchased numerous times. Only downside is I find the neutral colours are a little too yellow for my complexion, so I can't get the perfect colour match.

SUCH HIGH COVERAGE!! - 07-05-2018 by

I love this foundation, the coverage is so so full! I use it on most of my clients! Can look a bit cakey at times, but you just have to work with it a little!

Amazing foundation - 07-05-2018 by

This is my favourite foundation, complete coverage and lasts all day.

AMAZING - 30-04-2018 by

This foundation is the best on the market. Every time i try something else i always go back to it and have been for 8 years! It is long wearing and has a semi matte finish which even with my dry skin looks amazing and not flaky

Long lasting and good for people who wear glasses - 30-04-2018 by

I can see why people call this a "wedding day foundation."
It's long lasting, didn't oxidise, and hasn't yet moved or faded throughout the day. Even while wearing glasses, it didn't transfer or leave a lasting mark round my nose when I took them off.
Although this foundation does show off dry patches and with too much powder it can be quite drying and enhance "fine lines".
All in all it's worth it.

The ultimate longwear foundation! - 30-04-2018 by

I was dubious about this foundation because I had heard it was cakey, heavy and causing people to break out, however I was able to get my hands on a sample and fell in love!
A little goes a long way. I find it's best to apply two thin layers and build up otherwise it does go a little cakey and clings to nose, hairline etc.
It lasts a dream and the colour range is perfect- I love how warm it is without being too orange or yellow.
A must have!

MY FAVOURITE - 30-04-2018 by

It's my HOLY GRAIL! I love it for the same reasons as everyone else. Great coverage and staying power, as well as a great shade range.

The only two problems is that it does give flashback so maybe wear something else or mix it with another foundation on a night out. Also, it doesn't come with a pump, I had to buy that separately.

Goddess of all foundations! - 30-04-2018 by

This is the best foundation I've ever used. I've been through soooo many to find this pure goddess of a foundation! I have combo skin, not only that but freckles that I hate & others would kill for! This foundation can be a mixture of a light coverage or a full glam coverage. It is just fabulous, I will never buy anything else now. Its perfect, I would recommend to everyone and anyone!

1c0 Shell is a great pale shade - 29-04-2018 by

This shade is good on pale skin. It can be a bit drying but is amazing for a long hot day. I feel like this shade is about half a shade too dark for me and I'm like an NW8 shade but works in summer.

Might not be great for super dry skin but my normal skin is good with it.

Amazing foundation! - 19-04-2018 by

I love this foundation. Working long hours in hospitality, I have found it to be the only foundation that lasts the distance and doesn't feel too heavy on my skin. Love it!

The best foundation - 18-04-2018 by

I love this foundation. I have tried others with my cobination skin but always come back to it. The colour variety allows me to change shade over summer and then back to a slighlty lighter shade for winter. I always start with the estee Lauder Perfecting primer. Can't go wrong

Amazing Foundation! - 17-04-2018 by

I absoultely love this foundation! It gives a full coverage and really does stay in place all day long! It easily covers all of my imperfections and instantly gives me a flawless base. I love the matte finish of this foundation too, it is perfect for my oily skin! Even in super hot weather, this foundation doesn't budge!

Only foundation for me - 17-04-2018 by

I have extremely sensitive, combination dry - oily skin and this is the ONLY foundation that has ever worked for me. Can't recommend it enough.

Great for combination skin - 16-04-2018 by

I always try different foundations, but always end up coming back to this, The shade (desert beige) is perfect for me, has amazing staying power, and I do not get oily across my T-zone. Only down side for me is that I would prefer something a little more natural looking for daily wear, where my skin can be seen through the foundation - I might try their new light version.

The best foundation for acne skin - 12-04-2018 by

It’s the best full coverage foundation I’ve ever had and I suffer with cystic acne and I have scars all over my face and it covers everything ! It is quite matte so all I do is pair it with a mist such as the Mac fix plus or the Gerard cosmetics spray!

Best foundation - 12-04-2018 by

This is the best foundation hands down. Good coverage and lasts all day, with a beautiful dewy finish. I’ve used this product for years, and it doesn’t clog my pores or cause breakouts despite it seeming like a heavy duty foundation.

Coverage is Amazing! - 12-04-2018 by

I have combination skin and acne scarring. As long as I prep my skin with a good moisturiser I have no dramas wearing this makeup all day long!

I wouldn't recommend this if you are going to sweat a lot while wearing it as it really disturbs the makeup underneath, but for normal wear it lasts all day!

I prefer to apply using a damp sponge, but a brush works fine too! One of the best foundations I have found for full coverage to cover up any marks and spots! Love it!
