Best Full Coverage for Oily Skin


This is my go to foundation for full face makeup. I have oily skin and this foundation never separates and looks so good, the coverage is 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. Best Full Coverage for Oily Skin


    This is my go to foundation for full face makeup. I have oily skin and this foundation never separates and looks so good, the coverage is amazing.
  2. My go-to, reliable foundation


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

  3. Excellent foundation


    I previously purchased and reviewed the double wear powder foundation and sadly wasn’t impressed by it. I finally gave in and decided to purchase the liquid and I am so happy I did. I have used glominerals powder foundation for years and love the coverage but it just does not suit my oily skin. The Estée Lauder liquid literally stays put all day and doesn’t change colour. I also purchased the pump...

  4. Wore for 8 years!


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

  12. Holy. Grail. Foundation


    This is hands down the best foundation I’ve ever used. I wear it every day and I always get compliments on my skin. I disagree with people who say it’s too heavy for every day use because everyone has different preferences. I don’t personally find this too heavy and sometimes wish it was heavier for special occasions. Even though it’s pricey it’s so worth it especially since it’s important for fou...

    omg omg, I just love this foundation it's too good. it gives me a new skin whenever I wear it, it hides all my spots and pimples. I promise all you guys that you would love this. it looks good in any kind of skin. so you should buy it right now if you haven't. look it is your own choice but you should believe me.
  14. Love love love


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


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

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

    High coverage, applies ...

  16. Best foundation there is


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

  24. Sticks to dry patches and oxidises


    I wanted to love this after seeing so many great comments over the years. I purchased the lightest shade and it oxidised despite the Estée Lauder claims that it doesn’t. Unfortunately, it did on me. I found it emphasises dry patches and emphasised my pores. I have a full bottle languishing in the draw :(
    I went back to good old Revlon Colourstay in Buff for times when I need a long lastin...

  25. Holy grail!


    I love this foundation. It is my holy grail foundation. I have normal-dry skin with mild acne. I always have a good makeup day when I wear this foundation. It makes my makeup last all day and makes my skin look so smooth and flawless and covers all my acne scars. Highly recommend!
  26. Always reliable


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


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


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

    - Great coverage
    - Long lasting
    - Lot's of shades to choose from
    - The bottle goes a long way, as you don't need alot
    Would definitely recommend.
  29. Best Long Wear Makeup


    I was colour matched in Myer several years ago with Double Wear in Ecru. After spending years of trying to find a foundation that looked good, stayed on & didn’t make my sensitive skin react (trying so many brands from cheap to expensive) this is my favourite! I have oily combination skin that is sometimes reactive (sensitive to fragrance.etc) & this goes on beautiful. It stays in place (even with...

  30. The best foundation for oily skin!! My go-to!


    This is my all time favorite foundation for my super oily skin. Love the coverage and the feel of it!
  31. Best foundation for oily skin


    The only foundation which actually doesn't make me overly oily
  32. One of my favs!


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


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

  34. Amazing


    I've been using this foundation for years and nothing can compare to it! I use this foundation for my events and it never disappoints. It honestly lasts for hours! Will be continuing to buy for years to come.
  35. Favourite foundation


    I always come back to this foundation. Hands down. It’s full coverage but doesn’t feel heavy!
  36. Fast delivery and free gifts


    Really fast delivery, and thankyou so much for the free gifts. I was so impressed with the packaging. Wish i could leave a photo review. Will definitely order again. Thank you so much
  37. extreme coverage


    this is a really high coverage, I use this when I know I will be out all day and need it to last
  38. My go-to foundation


    LOVE THIS. Great coverage, has SPF, lightweight and stays on throughout the day. Won't use anything else!
  39. Old Friend - Always there for you


    A good friend of mine for many many years. Great for long lasting and a medium to full coverage that you can build on. Great for oily to combination skin. Occasionally I get a little bored and try something new, hoping for something exciting that will top this foundation but I am often disappointed and return sorry that I ever strayed.
  40. Great foundation


    I always find myself coming back to this foundation. It is buildable and leaves a luminous finish. I find it to be a great long lasting foundation.
  41. Feel a bit sad

    Char char

    I feel a bit sad & let down. After umming & ahhing I finally decided to purchase this but. I really really didn’t like it on my face. It clung to all my fine lines. Every dry spot despite exfoliating & super hydrating moisturiser & primer before hand. However it looked great on my sister who has oily skin. So just beware if your skin is on the drier side. Avoid avoid avoiidddd
  42. Holy Grail


    Couldn’t love this more. It’s the only foundation that won’t break up and become an oily mess by the end of the day on me. Still looks flawless even after a full day of work. Have repurchased countless times and I’ll never look back. I mix two colours to have the flexibility of changing my colour through winter/summer and highly recommend
  43. Perfect


    I only use two to three dots for my face and that way, I get an almost natural look. It lasts all day for my oily skin
  44. clings to dry patchs


    I have tried this foundation so many times with so much prep work and I just can't make it work. it seems to cling to dry and dehydrated patches and accentuate them. Given that this is a holy grail foundation for so many I think it comes down to individual skin type.
  45. Slides right off


    This wouldnt stay put on my skin no matter what primer or setting powder I used, it goes on with a nice full coverage but useless since i would barely touch my face and it would come off, after a couple of hours its already off the end of my nose without me even doing anything. I wanted to love it but couldnt.
  46. Fav foundation


    This is my fav foundation of all time. Full coverage and long lasting
  47. Can't go wrong if you want long wearing!


    can't fault this stuff, been using it for years! i always try and new foundation here and there and i always go back as nothing can beat this! i put it on at 4am and workout, work in a office all day and take it off around 9-10pm at night and it doesn't move or need a touch up all day
  48. Best foundation


    this is my go-to foundation on the daily has amazing coverage and easy to apply.
  49. Trusty old favourite


    I've used this foundation for years. It's the most full coverage foundation with a thin consistency. It stays in place all day long. It can be quite drying so make sure to moisturize before wear and after wear if you have dry skin!
  50. Great product


    This is a great foundation, really good coverage and such a massive range of colours. I have acne prone, combination and early aging skin and I find it sits really well with me. I also purchased the water based version for a lighter day time option.
  51. Best foundation!


    I have always relied on the double wear for my skin. Longest lasting foundation!
  52. Holy Grail Foundation


    This foundation is heavy, but lasts all day, has great coverage and a good finish and a great shade range. I have tried many foundations, and this is by far my favourite.
  53. 50/50


    Some days it looks great, others I feel it’s cakey. Medium coverage look. Needs the perfect primer
  54. Love this foundation - but not amazing for full coverage or oily skin


    This foundation is great if you're only after a medium coverage, it's easy to put on after warming on fingers and I get a lot of uses in one bottle. I do have to say that if I don't use any powder afterwards my skin gets too oily, so definitely use it with some other oil control products.
  55. Love it, best foundation for oily/combanation skin


    I have oily combanation skin, and some acne scars. This foundation blends so well with full coverage.
    Gives me flawless and natural look. Definately use beauty blender if you want a more lightweight finish.
    Affordable price and good quality.
  56. the best coverage


    I wouldn't use this as an everyday, but this is the best coverage for when I need it, it also lasts so well
  57. Full coverage that doesn't feel like it


    This is my holy grail foundation when I want a full coverage glam look. It does not dry out my skin or oxidise and gives me a gorgeous natural, dewy finish that does not look oily. Been using this for 3 years and am not looking back.
  58. Long lasting Foundation


    I have been using this foundation for a few years now. It's coverage is great and the best part is it is long lasting! The shades a great also, I have a light shade and also a darker shade for when I am wearing a tan. I will use this for many years to come.
  59. High coverage foundation


    For every day, I would not wear this, as I typically wear a mineral foundation when out and about or to work, but if you are going somewhere special, this is a great high coverage foundation to use. It basically blurs your skin and I am also so impressed with the large range of colours. I have 2, one my normal shade and the other for when I'm more tan (either natural or if I've fake tanned). It pr...

  60. Great product


    This foundation has awesome coverage without looking cakey. It’s really smooth and applies well - with a good primer and setting spray it lasts a full night!
  61. Amazing


    Amazing coverage, lasts all day, makes skin look airbrushed and doesn't budge at all.
  62. AMAZING!


    This foundation really is AMAZING! The consistency is smooth and not too tacky, the shade really melts into your skin and still allows your skin to look like skin, and the price point is fantastic for the amount of product you get! Purchase repeat, always.
  63. 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!
  64. 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
  65. 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.
  66. 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!
  67. My go to


    This foundation has been my go to foundation for years. Full coverage without feeling too heavy on the skin
  68. 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!
  69. Best foundation ever!


    Lasts all day and into the night. Full coverage. The original
    And the best!
  70. 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!
  71. 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
  72. 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.

  73. 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.
  74. 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.
  75. 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

  77. 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.
  78. 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.
  79. 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!
  80. 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
  81. 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...

  85. 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.
  86. 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
  87. 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.
  88. 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.
  89. 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.
  90. 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.
  91. 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!
  92. 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.
  93. 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.
  94. Love this


    Matches skin type
    Best coverage, never used a foundation like it
  95. 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!
  96. 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
  97. 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
  98. 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.
