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

Cannot faultThis 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
Broke me outNot my fave thing. I found my skin was really congested after using it!
GorgeousThis 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.
Very heavyThis 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!
Best long wear foundationI’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.
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!
All time favourite foundationThis 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.
long wearing, favourite foundationThis 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.
Great coverageLove 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.
The best foundation hands downI'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.
Best coverageLove love love this foundation! Got a sample from the store and now been using Estée Lauder for 2 years.
The coverage is amazing. It lets your skin breathe. I use a small amount for work and it looks good!
Full coverage foundationLove the coverage this foundation gives, lasts all day
Great productI have been using this for years! Long lasting and great for oily skin
Great for oily skinThis foundation stays in place all day on my oily skin
It works wellI have been using Napoleon Perdis foundation stick (look 4) for about 8 years now and have decided it's time to find a new foundation. Not only have I saved money by switching, this foundation works just as-well, actually a little better. It took me hours to colour match online but finally found my shade, so if you are also using Napoleon foundation stick and want to switch from a look 4, go for Toasty Toffee. This foundation does set a bit quick, but it sets to the point that it actually lasts all day on your face. It feels light and covers my acne scars, marks and deep pores. My skin is a combination of oily and dry and as long as you moisturise well this foundation will work smoothly onto the skin leaving you a flawless complexion. It will only look dry if you have dry patches, so best be making sure you moisturise to get the full benefit of this product. Will definitely be recommending this foundation to others.
I can see why people rave about it!As a penny pinching kind of person i could never understand why people would spend so much money on a foundation till now. I was lucky enough to have my skin matched at the beautyheaven party with this cool machine. The consultants take three readings on your forehead, cheek and neck to find your average shade to match your foundation. As an Asian I have a yellowy complexion and I find it a little hard to find the right shade as the choices I usually get are beige, beige and more beige but I was pleasantly surprised at how perfect the shade I got, dawn was for my skin. It's a full coverage foundation and a little will go a long way. No need to cake it on and it says stays in place it means it. This is the kind of foundation you need for those special all day affairs.
Wow!This is by far the most ‘full- coverage’ foundation I have used. You have to be careful though about how much you use. Too much can make you go from no-make makeup to too much makeup. If you know what I mean. A little goes a long way and goes on your face like butter. Beautiful to build up too. I love it to bits ❤️
Best foundationI have always come back to this foundation it covers all my blemishes and lasts all day!! I love the full coverage and use every day
Best foundation of all time!I have been through multiple bottles of this stuff because I can find no better.
its stays put, good coverage, color matched perfectly (ecru 1N2), plays nice with all types and brands of primer and makeup, Keeps looking reasonably fresh all day and night even after a sweaty HIIT sesh. Best applied with beauty blender for a seamless dewy finish
AmazingFirst the buyer of this product. I have used it once and it’s so lovely to wear. I have oily skin and with most make up I get very shiny, but not with this, the coverage is fanatic.
LoveLove Estee Lauder Double wear foundation. Have used it for many years, it's full coverage and makes my skin look beautiful. Comes off easily enough at end of day. Doesn't separate during the day, looks absolutely flawless until I go to remove it.
Full coverage, durable foundation that provides longevity and flawless skinI have combination skin (mainly oily but can get dry) and I find this foundation is the best I have ever used. I have been using double wear consistently for over 5 years now and no other product compares. The foundation is full coverage and provides longevity like no other foundation I have ever used. I initially purchased double wear as I was seeking a durable full coverage foundation that would not rub away against my phone or as a result of perspiration throughout the long working day and this did not disappoint. The packaging is sleek, stylish and a bottle usually lasts 1.5-2 months with daily wear. You can also apply lightly for a lighter coverage or build for fulller coverage. I would absolutely recommend this to others. The only thing I would change is the twist lid as I prefer a pump or dropper lid.
Feels like nothing is on your faceI love this product so much, it’s very light weight and trust me when I say a little goes a LONG way! You’ll be on one bottle for ages. Must have.
Full coverageThis is my go to foundation for nights out and events because it is so full coverage and looks flawless on. I tend to stick to my Giorgio Armani silk foundation for day time because its a bit more lighter. This double wear I dont like as much in the day time because its heavier due to being full coverage.
Favourite foundationSo happy with this foundation! Covers perfectly and doesn’t crease. My favourite!
fantastic product ! great for oily skinlovley product and colour match. stays on all day. i have an oily nose, and i find it much better using this product than other foundations. can use extra makeup to cover as a concelor
LOCKED INThis foundation does not move! I have super oily skin so I love the matte finish. I wouldn't' recommend this to people with dry skin as it may dry out your skin even further. Will definitely repurchase!
This delivers!!Beautiful foundation. It does not move! You can definitely build it up for full coverage. Goes on easily, but you do need well moisturised, primed skin. I ordered online and used the colour match for previous foundations and it's my perfect shade.
I have normal/dry skin with a little bit of redness. I definitely recommend especially against other, more expensive foundations. Love it!
Best foundation !Long lasting, light feeling, overall my favourite foundation!
Great foundationI have used Estée Lauder double wear in pure beige (for medium tone) for about 4 years now. It’s a heavier base which I find blends nicely with small amount product and a flat buffer, although it is a fuller coverage so I tend to use it more so in evening and not as an everyday. Matte finish
A keeper!I have struggled for years to find a foundation that covers my acne scars and doesn't irritate my skin and had almost given up. This is definitely a keeper. Build-able coverage and definitely lasts all day. I'm already on my second bottle.
Absolutely StunningIt is no wonder that so many brides will choose this foundation for their wedding day! This has a photo shop effect and will keep you looking flawless and beautiful all day.
AMAZINGGGGthis is now my go to foundation! I’ve gone through so many and have never found a foundation quite like this one. Leaves my skin looking silky smooth, and still looks fabulous after hours of being on my skin!
DOES NOT MOVE.This foundation literally DOES NOT MOVE.
I went to the gym and came out and still had a full face of makeup.
I do find it to be a bit too heavy for my liking and a bit cakey for the dry areas on my face.
Most likely wouldn't repurchase.
Outstanding coverageLasts all day and provides beautiful coverage.
Holy grailThe hype is real, I’ve been using this for a few years and have tried other foundations but nothing compares to this! The shade shell beige is the perfect match for when I have loving tan on it’s such a nice natural tan shade.
A favourite since foreverI have been using this foundation for years now after my favourite blogger was infatuated with it and although tempted to try something like Fenty or Too Faced, I always find myself restocking this faithful foundation. I have combination skin, with freckles and only a slight oil issue and this foundation is great when used along with a high end moisturiser or decent primer. I use the shade 2N1 to even out my complexion which is fair-ish - I don't tan but still I find it blending nicely down my neck without obvious colour difference. I team this foundation with shape tape concealer and loose setting powder for a comfortable everyday makeup look.
My go-to for the past 5 yearsNothing beats this foundation.
Sits on the skin beautifully, lasts all day and has amazing coverage.
BeautifulI have just changed to Double Wear after using Nars Sheerglow for about 5 years. I’m still getting the hang of it but it has a velvet finish, I don’t need powder with it and great colour selection.
One of my favsThis is a beautiful classic foundation that I always seem to eventually go back too!! My first favourite foundation as it gives a gorgeous natural finish. Very buildable coverage and lasts for hours! Love it !!
Not a fani was the shade porcelain and i found it very cakey and didn't like the way it sat on my skin, i have combination skin, however it was full coverage
Good coverageThis foundation provides good coverage, I keep coming back to it as it doesn’t crease or make my skin look too dry, it does need to be set down with a spray or a powder to make it last 12+ hours though or otherwise I find it breaks down and transfers during the day and also I find some other products don’t work well when using this foundation, overall it is good and a bottle lasts me a long time.
Perfect coverage, great staying foundation, especially for oily skinI absolutely love this foundation. I have oily combo skin & normally have issues with foundation moving, especially on my nose & t zone area. The double wear stays in place, gives a beautiful buildable full coverage finish, that doesnt look cakey.
I recommend you also purchase the pump applicator as well.
My go-to for yearsThis foundation covers acne, imperfections and discolouration very well without looking overly fake and cakey. Very impressive shade range with a wide variety of undertones. Doesn’t break apart, settle into pores or slide off, and I have difficult skin that ranges from very dry to very oily - so this is an achievement. But it’s true superpower is it lasts forever! I’ve worn this to music festivals and woken up the next morning with my foundation looking almost the same as when I put it on. I would say it’s medium-to-high coverage, so maybe it’s a bit too much for someone who likes natural everyday makeup.
One stop shop foundation it does it all !!I love this foundation, it has a fantastic shade range so I was able to get a perfect match. The formula is great, its not matte but not dewy so you get the best of both worlds and a great "skin like" finish. I also love that I can use this with my fingers and sheer it out as well as use a sponge and build it up for a full coverage look, the coverage is that good I find I don't use a concealer with this foundation either. You really don't need another foundation. I should also mention it lasts all day (12hrs plus in the QLD heat) and it doesn't ever look cakey !! If you haven't tried this yet you really need to !
MehGood coverage and I liked my shade but I broke out quite badly. It’s nice but not worth the bad skin!
A great coverage and long-lasting foundation.I love Estee Lauder and was excited to try this foundation. I found it very light and it just gently disappears into your skin and is very long wearing it lasts all day and is not a heavy foundation like other brands. Would def recommend.
Nice product but not great for dry skinI tried this instead of my usual Nars foundation and while I like the texture and colour, my skin felt very dry after I removed my makeup at night. I would recommend adding additional moisturiser or primer to your routine if you have dry skin.
Great !This foundation is amazing , gives good coverage with a beautiful finish . A must have foundation for anyone
So dryingI was really excited to get this, but when I started using it for the first time you have to work really fast with it other wise it just drys into place and doesn’t move which is great for once your makeups all done but when your trying to apply it, it was a bit stressful working really quickly just so I wouldn’t have odd marks over my face. It went super oily on face after a few hours which I’ve never experienced before with a foundation and got heaps of breakouts and millia from it.
Love itThis foundation is a gem . I have tried many other brands but this foundation looks so natural on my skin and the way it oxidizes makes u look flawless.
Nice FoundationAfter Make Up For Ever canned their Mat Velvet + Foundation, I was forced to find something else that would suit my skin after their new Mat foundation's lightest shade was too dark for me. I purchased Double Wear upon a recommendation from a friend whose foundation always looks great, and I'm glad I did. It applies smoothly and evenly, and you only need a little bit as it comes out quite watery. Rating 4 stars only because I feel like it needs to come in a pump bottle because unless you have a makeup spatula around, quite a bit gets wasted pouring it onto the back of your palm.
Love this full coverage makeupI have rosacea and sun damage. I love this foundation. Comfortably covers everything. I've tried others but keep coming back to this one as my favourite.
Go to FoundationDouble Wear is the only foundation that will last the whole day and night with no touch ups, No matter how long it has been on it always looks although I have just done my make-up. I have tried other foundations but none give the same coverage or last the same as double wear!
I've never looked back... but why the price increase?This foundation is incredible! I have NEVER looked back. Just a shame as it use to only be $50. Still, I would recommend.
10/10Amazing range of colours/shades, long lasting (even after swimming all day) easy to apply. I have recommended to many of my friends and everyone has loved this. My mum has been using this for years as well so its for all ages.
Works wonders for my oily skin!I’ve tried so many different foundations to suit my oily skin and this is by far the best! I keep coming back to it over and over again. Coverage is gorgeous and it holds all day.
BeautifulI’ve tried so many foundations and this one I keep buying again and again. It literally stays on all day and still looks great. Very easy to put on, leaves a flawless coverage.
Love itI started using this foundation because Bobbi Brown discontinued my favourite go-to foundation. This one is a close second to it though, and I'm very happy with it. It goes on nice, and leaves a nice finish. Lasts all day with significantly less transfer than other foundations I've used.
Found it hard to find the right colourI found it really hard to find the right colour in this foundation.
Long lastingIt is very light and long lasting, as long as you can get the shade right, you can’t go wrong with this foundation.
Long lastingI have tried so many foundations as I have both dry and oily skin at times and have issues with foundation wearing off quickly. I love this particular one it lasts my whole work day and is a great consistency. Not too thick.
AmazingBest foundation I have come cross and I’ve tried many including revlon colorstay, too faced born this way, kryolan tv paint stick, Napoleon perdis stroke of genius and many more but this is by far my favourite. I have normal to dry skin and paired with benefit porefessional it’s long lasting and looks great.
HG statusI have more than 50 foundations in my collection (yes i know i need help). But this foundation is like a safety blanket for me. If i need my makeup to last all day long and looks good. I always go back to this foundation. It is just fool proof for my combination oily skin. BUT, you really need to clean your skin at the end of the day, if not, this can clog your pore
My 'special event' foundationI have NEVER found another foundation with so many shades and one that actually matches my skin perfectly. This was the original drawcard to trying Estée Lauder. The fact this product is designed to wear for long periods of time was the next box on my list checked off, and this product definitely does what it says it will. I still use a primer, powder and setting spray on top, but this foundation is my go to if I know I'm going to be out all night, or heading out straight after work.
I only wear this for 'special events' as the formula is much heavier and fuller coverage than my everyday foundation, but I find it works well if you're after an 'airbrushed' look.
The only foundation I useThis product is amazing. It is high coverage, stays on all day AND has a shade that matches perfectly to my extremely fair skin tone! I find a lot of foundations break me out but I have never had a problem with this one. Would definitely recommend to anyone!
Couldn't make it workThis foundation has been raved about for years as one of the best foundations on the market for full coverage, long lasting matte skin, but I couldn't make it work. Not only could I not find a decent match for my skin tone (disappointing, considering all shades available), but it looked extremely dry, which is an achievement in itself on my very oily skin. I have no dry or flaky patches either, and it made me look like I did, and clung around any pimples or congestion I had in my skin, which only emphasised them. I also experienced the unfortunate situation of having my face oxidise to extreme levels. My closest matches seem to be somewhere between Warm Porcelain, Bone and Ecru, all of which turn oompa-loompa orange on my skin in a span of fifteen minutes. Take this review with a grain of salt, as this is my own experience. Yours may be different.
Fantastic FoundationThis is one of the best foundations I've ever used. Great coverage, so many shades to suit my pale skin but also for when I've tanned. The coverage is full and lasts all day. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a really good full coverage product.
Staple in my collectionSince first purchasing this foundation 6 years ago i have never not had a bottle around, its always a foundation that i go back to and wonder why i stopped using it. the colours work well for my fair skin our when i'm fake tanned and it lasts all day on my combo skin
Amazing!!I’ve heard so many great reviews I had to try for myself. I have a lot freckles on my face so I prefer full coverage foundations to hide them and wow what great coverage it gave me! Overall amazing foundation that held up all day
Nice foundation but I’ve used betterNice finish but needs a lot of work to blend perfectly. Skin must be moisturised well. I find it also contributes to congestion
My Go-To FoundationI have tried SO many different high-end and drug store foundations and I always come back to Este Lauder Double Wear. For me, nothing else compares. It’s lightweight but high coverage. The best part for me is that is stays on all day for over 12 hours and doesn’t leave me looking patchy or dry.
Great foundationThis foundation has great coverage and actually does stay on all day. It has a matte finish, blends well, covers imperfections and does not gather in fine lines or pores. Would definitely recommend!!
Favourite productGreat product, fantastic price, insanely fast shipping! Will 100% be returning customer.
Great coverageI love this product, a little goes a long way. It has a pleasant scent, and is super easy to apply and stays all day. I did find it felt a bit dry, and I prefer a more dewy finish where I find this feels more matte. Overall a great product.
11/10 star ratingAfter seeing how many people rave about how good this foundation is, I thought I would try it out (usually I use MAC studio fix), and I am so happy that I did!! This foundation covers my redness, uneven skin tone and acne scarring and literally does not rub off on clothes and is amazing coverage. The best foundation, highly recommend it
Good coverage on dry skinI tried this foundation after hearing good things. It covers my freckles and redness (even when mixed with liquid illuminator) and doesn't feel wet or heavy. I have dry skin and it sits well, however, sometimes it does get dryer in some patches but I have found this with all foundations I have used. Colour is the best match for my skin of any foundation I've tried and the scent is mild and not noticeable which I prefer over more perfumed brands.
One of the bestThis is one of my all time favourite foundations! I switch between this one and NARS.. it is Leighton weight with a great buildable coverage and matches my skin perfectly
Holy GrailI love this foundation. It stays put, has great coverage, but leaves my skin still looking like skin.
AMAZING FOUNDATIONthis is the best foundation i have ever tried on. medium to full coverage and just a little amount gets the job done. it does not wrinkles. even dry skin people can use it too however, they need to put hydrating primer or a moisturizer underneath it. i have dry skin and i got the shade 2C3 Fresco
Not a fanThis product has great coverage however, the flash back is horrendous! I look like a pale ghost in every photo with flash so do NOT recommend for night time events.. Disappointing considering the price tag
Excellent foundationGreat foundation for normal to oily skin. Stays in place all day. Excellent coverage
Long Wear and Flawless FinishThis foundation is now my holy grail.. where has it been all my life! It stays on so well and has excellent coverage. People always compliment my skin when I wear it. I pair it with a primer on weekends when I want my make up to stay on even longer. Once you go double wear you will never go back!
Not idealThis is thick. I’m 30 and the full face look from this was not flattering, and I couldn’t blend it out. The Estée Lauder Double Wear Nude is much more flattering, and builable.
Full coverageThis foundation is very thick and lasts all day, great for events but not so much for every day wear
Really nice foundationThis foundation is one of the best I’ve ever used.
My skin type is combination and find foundations don’t always sit nicely due to some parts of my face being too dry or too oily but this sits nicely and lasts throughout the day.
It is quite a heavy foundation so it wouldn’t suited for someone who is after a thin foundation.
Love it.This has beautiful coverage especially in Australian summers. Lasts all day at work. I always get compliments on my makeup when I wear this foundation. I have sensitive skin and it doesn’t irritate my skin. You have the option of wearing it lightly or full coverage on formal occasions. Highly recommend.
Good coverage with a small amountI purchased this after reading positive reviews Provides good coverage of my redness and freckles with only a small amount of product required. Stays in place and doesn't feel heavy.I mix with a liquid illuminator and it still has great coverage.
My go to foundationLove this foundation! Perfect for my dry yet oily skin. Work best with a nice primer on as it’s a thick foundation. Love love love it!!
Always come back!!Best foundation ever, I’ve tried so many other brands and always find myself coming back to double wear
Fantastic, love this product!This foundation is the absolute best stuff I have ever used. My skin is quite oily and it does oil up a bit during day but regardless it stays flawless and a dab of tissue gets rid of the oil and leaves the foundation looking as good as when I applied it! It doesn’t look cakey either. My favourite stuff!!!
It’s matte and full coverageI am using this brand summer and winter. Not oily, not sticky.
My Go To!I’ve been using this foundation on and of for years. Every time I decide to try something new (out of boredom or curiousity) I always come back to Double Wear. I’ve got oily to combination skin, no other makeup compares to the full coverage and matte long lasting finish. I highly recommend buying the pump to make your bottle last longer!
I always come back to EL Double WearThis foundation is high coverage and incredibly long wearing. It stays on put and doesn’t smudge, no matter how busy your day is.
I’ve used many foundations but I always come back to this, it never fails me.
Stays on all dayI've been using this foundation for a few years now, by far the best I have tried. My skin is combination, this foundation stays on all day and doesn't go shiny or yuk.
Long wearing, amazing coverageI love this foundation so much! Perfect for my oily skin. Great coverage for a full face, event or night out. Wish it came with a pump though!!
‘STAY IN PLACE’ yes indeedThey mean what they say, it stays in place!
I have oily skin and I always have trouble with foundations sliding off my face after a few hours but I’ve not had any of that happen with this Foundation!
Best foundation on the market!This is by far the best foundation I have ever used. It does not smudge or rub off, even when I wear glasses all day. I have been swimming in this foundation and the water beads on top rather than washing it away. The colour range is great and suits all skin tones. I would 100% recommend, you'll never go back! Even when I have been in weddings or had my makeup done I have asked them to use this foundation as the base because I know how well it lasts. I get many compliments on my face at the end of the day. Amazing!
Love itThis my best foundation ever if you have oil skin this the best highly recommend
