This is one of the best foundations I have ever used! Not only does it stay in place all day, but it doesn't budge even with sweat or water droplets from the rain. Only issue is that it can take a bit to remove the foundation, otherwise this is so so so fantastic! I've bought this for the last year and a half and will continue to! :)

Not a ntural look


I purchased this foundation due to all the hype online. This foundation is definatly on the heavy side, when you use it it has a very destinctive smell... It's a medium - full coverage foundation so if you're looking for something natural, it is definately not for you. However, the shade range of this is great.

  2. Good coverage but oxidises and makes me look old


    This is not friendly to older skin. Whilst it has great coverage and sits like super glue on the skin, it is so obviously heavy and drying and not natural looking at all on older skin. The colour range is awful and every shade oxidises about 2 shades darker on me. I have light skin and cannot find a match.

  4. Great foundation


    Great foundation, super long wearing and decent coverage. It’s easy to apply and gives your skin a lovely natural finish
    Definitely worth buying the pump though if you don’t want to waste heaps of product
  5. Go to foundation


    This is the best foundation I've found for my skin, which is very oily. I use it every day
  6. Goes the distance!


    This is the best foundation for incredible longevity, excellent coverage, and a beautiful finish. It makes my skin look flawless and beautiful. I don't use concealer, but with this foundation I definitely don't need it!


    Holy grail foundation, used it for years, absolute full coverage, great for oily skin and huge range of shades!
  8. Great foundation


    I've been using this foundation for a couple of years now. I have oily/combination skin, It definitely lasts all day and it doesn't feel heavy on my skin.
  9. my fave.


    love this sooo much. wouldnt change it to any other foundation. literally stays all day. doesn't move
  10. Long Wear, Great Coverage


    A great amount of coverage levels are possible with this foundation, a small amount is perfect for everyday wear or add a little extra for a full coverage full face look.
    I tend to get a little oily through the day and find this is fantastic with that issue.
    Only downside is the bottle not coming with a pump but these can be purchased separately.
  11. Not sure if it's for me


    Woks quite well for me but I don't find it worth the hype. Its a nice foundation but I feel like there are other brands that I prefer. I have very dry skin and I feel that this makes my skin drier.
  12. No Other Foundation Like It!


    I try to get all of my friends to try this foundation so often that they think I must be earning commission on the product! (FYI, I'm definitely not - I wish!)

    This foundation is seriously incredible. It lasts all day, never smudges, doesn't transfer, looks dewy and fresh, and works with every other product I've tried it with.

    I can even kiss my bearded boyfriend without this product transferring onto him!

    This stuff is magic, I'll never find another foundation as good, and I'm ok with this!
  13. Can’t find a better foundation!


    Have tried so many other foundations are none give better coverage. Lasts all day/doesn’t go patchy and is extremely full coverage. 100% recommend
  14. Best foundation


    After 10 years Of never buying the same foundation twice. I just purchased my 6th bottle of double wear.
    Completly buildable coverage, truly lasts all day long.
    Recommend to anybody !
  15. Hides spots


    Great if you're looking for full coverage! Doesn't look cakey and break me out - looks like real skin but hides my problematic areas (spots!).
  16. amazing coverage


    This gives such amazing coverage that I dont even feel the need to use concealer because this stuff conceals everything! The formula is super nice too!


    I am back again for another review because nothing beats this foundation! I just got back from a holiday that saw me in the snow one week and swimming in 40 degree heat the other and this foundation did not fail me. It didn't dry me out in the cool weather and stayed on even whilst sweating and swimming, it was like the water just dripped off without budging the makeup. INCREDIBLE, 100% RECOMMEND TO ANYONE!
  18. Not my favourite product


    I know so many people who swear by this product so I tried it with a tester, I can't say I loved it. It left my skin feeling heavy and strange, the velvet feel wasn't for me and was uncomfortable when wearing on my skin all day. The foundation also oxidises quite a bit so keep that in mind when choosing a shade.
  19. Holy Grail Of Foundations


    This foundation deserves its cult following. It is medium to heavy coverage but I find it blends well - you do need to be efficient at applying though because it seems to “dry” if you take you time. It does not budge! Plus the colour selection is great - I’m fair so sometimes the lightest shade is too dark for me.
  20. Nothing beats Double Wear


    I have been using Estee Lauder Double Wear since it was recommended to me for my wedding day, 10 years ago, it is all day coverage and is by far the very best full coverage, my skin has patches of darker pigmentation and it is completly covered. Amazing foundation.
  21. Beautiful and creamy


    I have used this one foundation for many years and it never fails me at creating a beautiful fresh base
  22. Favourite Foundation


    Love this product, its has a full coverage without feeling caked on the skin. Lasts all day (and night) with minimal touching up. This is a must have in your make up bag.
  23. Great coverage


    Best foundation I’ve found for my oily skin. Stays in place all day. buildable coverage. Have been using it for years.
  24. Best foundation ever


    Literally the best foundation I've ever used in my life! I have been using this for years, I've tried other things but always come back to this. It is very full coverage and STAYS ALL DAY! I never have an issue with flashback with this foundation either
  25. Holy Grail!


    This is truly too good, amazing coverage and it's so buildable, I use a primer first and powder on top and this foundation will last me all day and night rain or shine, like for example my friends and I were on our way to a get together when it started pouring down with rain, dripping wet we all went home to re get ready and I literally just had to fix my hair and get changed while the girls re-done everything, my makeup had not budged! Highly highly recommend! X


    This foundation is one of the best on the market, I have had this foundation for a few months now and I can’t believe how amazing it is !!!! Stays on all day and the shades are very good would highly recommend
  27. Forever Favorite


    I absolutely love this foundation! It is a true medium+ coverage foundation with a lovely semi matte flawless finish.This is the only foundation that I confidently wear all day long in any climate without having to touch-up or blot throughout the day.
  28. For bulletproof wear


    This is beyond holy grail - it's a damn unicorn. Coverage that can be sheered out or built up and dries down quickly so you can work it to your perfect level - great for spot concealing without having to fuss and blend. Works with powders or creams on top. And then IT. WILL. NOT. BUDGE. ALL. DAY. The worst thing about this foundation is that it can be a little TOO long-wearing - you need to take care to get it all off properly (double cleansing is your friend). I've tried every Insta-famous foundation under the sun and I can tell you this is the only one worth buying.
  29. Holy Grail


    I have tried so many foundations and continue to come back to this one. I can put it on at 6am in the morning and it doesn't move until I wash it off later that night. It lasts and sets in place, I've worn it when it was raining and it didn't run or move. It can be a little hard to find the right shade but I still love it. I have oily skin and this foundation is matte but not drying.
  30. Holy Grail Foundation


    This is one of the best foundations I've ever tried. I have pale combination skin with cool undertones (MAC NW13) and the colour 1C0 Shell is a perfect match for me. This foundation is full coverage, very natural-looking, does not get cakey or patchy and lasts all day. I use this over Benefit's Porefessional and it stays put on my face, covers my pores and my T-zone stays relatively matte all day (just a couple of touch ups required). Amazing.
  31. My Ride or Die Foundation


    This really does stay in place, all.day.long. If I have a 12 hour work day, and then squeeze in a run without washing my face first (oops), I still come home shocked at how flawless my makeup still is. Super buildable with full coverage. I do at times feel like my face is a bit lifeless if I don't do blush with it, but I'm not makeup-savvy enough to contour, so I usually just use blush and switch to a BB or lighter coverage if I want something slightly more natural. I don't know how I will cope if they ever discontinue this.
  32. Amazing foundation


    This is one of my favourite foundations ever! It lasts for ages and makes my skin feel soft. There is a great colour range so you’re likely to find a good match for you
  33. All Day Wear


    I love this foundation, I have been using it for a while now. It is the only one I have been able to wear all day without it rubbing away from my T Zone. Goes on really smooth with a beauty blender especially.
  34. all day foundation


    I just keep coming back to this foundation, good coverage and all day wear, even lasts all day at work. Definitely recommend
  35. New Fave


    I’ve heard so much hype about this foundation, and finally tried it for myself. I have sensitive combination skin and this foundation is perfect. It’s matte finish but doesn’t look dry and lasts all day long. My only regret is not trying it sooner!
  36. Holy Grail, Day One Foundation


    I have used this foundation for years. I stray and try other brands and blends but always come back to this one as old faithful. Buildable coverage and doesn't cause my skin to breakout or irritate at all.
  37. Great coverage and easy to blend


    This goes onto my skin so flawlessly and is so light for its coverage. I love it but prefer powder over liquid foundation
  38. Excellent coverage and feels so light


    I tried painting 1 side of my face for the day just to compare how well it stayed on for the whole day while I was at home. It held up all day.. VERY happy with the result. It also covers my rosacea. The color that I got 1N2 Ecru matches perfectly with my skin tone too, so I will definitely buy again.
  39. Holy grail!


    I absolutely love this foundation! I wear the shade Shell and it’s so good for my very fair skin!
    I’ve tried other foundations but they just don’t compare and I always come back to this! I recommend it to everyone I can! I’ve seen a few people complain about the smell of it but I really love the smell!
    Overall 10/10
  40. No transfer


    Amazing foundation that stays in place no matter how hot the weather and doesn't transfer when hugging. Foundation looks the same at the end of the day as it did when you first applied it
  41. The best


    Every beauty lover knows about Estee Lauder Double Wear. It's the best foundation for oily or oily/combo skin. Even though it's supposed to be medium to full coverage, you can definitely sheer it out by using a damp makeup sponge and only applying a light layer. The result is a natural skin-like finish that will last all day!
  42. The best foundation!


    This foundation is one of my absolute go to products. No foundation looks so good on my face and lasts as well as Double Wear! It can be worn at a light or medium coverage, or built up to full coverage. Such a versatile product for every day or a night out.
  43. Still the best


    Every now and then I reach out and try a flashy new foundation that I see splashed all over Instagram. But at the end of the day I always come back to double wear! Nothing beats it for consistent coverage and lasting through the day - please don’t change!
  44. Beautiful light


    Beautiful and ligt feeling coverage doesn’t feel heavy just beautiful makeup
  45. LOVE!


    One of my favourite foundations, long wearing and great colour selection. Great for day time looks and is buildable for night time. I have used this during various skin stages (use to have some pretty terrible adult acne to now clear skin from roaccutane) and it works on both! Definitely recommend
  46. Top of the class


    This is the ride or die of foundations and it’s going to get you through any kind of day.
    Love it! Would recommend rehydrating the skin with a mask or good serum after wearing though as it can be a little drying over time.
  47. Excellent


    Excellent full cover foundation that won’t budge and won’t come off on your clothes. Pairs well with the matte primer and pressed powder. Love the whole double-wear range.
  48. full coverage


    Best full coverage foundation - can't use this product everyday as it will break me out but great for a night out as it is very long lasting
  49. Splurge but worth it


    its a bit of a splurge but it really does make my face look flawless
  50. Perfect foundation for all skin types


    Finally comes in a shade light enough for us ghosts!
    I'm 30, dry skin, and double wear was my first ever high end product many years ago when it's lightest shade was to dark for me and I'd have to use a white mixer, I powered through but never understood the hype since I was having to change it. Now I totally understand the hype! I wear it as a light to very light medium overage by only applying the smallest amount with my hands and it covers my redness but my skin still looks like fresh skin especially over my tatcha dewy skin cream since I prefer glow not matte. Now days I have a whole drawer full of high-end and luxury foundations and this one blows them all out of the water. This one is now my number one since I can easily make it dewy and light
  51. Worth it


    I have been using this for years and still love it. I have oily/ combo skin and this is the only foundation that provides the best coverage and doesn’t melt off my skin in summer.
  52. Great full coverage


    This foundation is so full coverage! Excellent for special events like weddings or formals. It doesn’t budge one bit
  53. Staple


    A great staple foundation, it's a tad thick and can cake if you aren't careful. I mix it with a lighter coverage foundation to get my holy trail mix
  54. Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place


    So i've switched over from MAC Pro Longwear waterproof foundation as i found it way too thick & sticky on my skin. I used the 'findation' match finder on Adore Beauty site to find a similar colour in the Estee Lauder and it was spot on! I found the MAC make up quite sticky and took a while to dry but this product dries pretty quickly and doesn't have that sticky feeling. I usually end up with a shiny noise from oil during the day but i am finding this is not happening as much with this product which is great. Lovely matte full cover finish. I'm happy with it. My sister and niece kept telling me to try this and i wish i had of done it sooner!!
  55. My go to foundation


    I LOVE This foundation! It has great coverage & perfect for everyday wear. My foundation always looks perfect at the end of each day too, cannot fault this.
  56. Holy Grail of Foundations


    I've been using double wear for years. Great coverage and stays on all day! My only suggestion would be use a good primer underneath so it's easier to take off at the end of the day.


    I have tried switching foundation and I always come back to this because it is the best for oily/ combo skin. Doesn’t look cakey just feels heavier than other foundations.
  58. Great coverage but drying


    I purchased this foundation after having a trial in store and loved it, however after a few applications found that it was drying out my skin. Such a shame because the coverage is great and it lasts well throughout the day. Good foundation, but not for me.
  59. Extremely high coverage


    This is a foundation I only reach for once in a blue moon. It is extremely full coverage with a very matte mask like finish. I only ever use this when doing a full on glamour makeup look. It definitely needs a lot of contour and highlight added in as it makes skin look quite flat. Great for events! Doesn’t budge a bit!
  60. The foundation has best coverage


    I have already recommend many friends about this foundation! I have some spot on my face, but not very obvious and it can cover almost all my spot and not oily after a whole hot day! I will buy again!
  61. Definitely yes


    Im a 1w2 sand in winter (2w1 dawn in summer), and they dont stock this shade at myer or david jones. But they do on adorebeauty. Ive been using this foundation for 5 years now. Tried samples of other foundations here and there (hourglass, fenty, giorgio armani) and nothing is better and worth its price than this one. Great for more combination /oily skin, and not really recommended for naturally dry skin (im not a dry skin, but im a dehydrated skin)
  62. Fantastic Medium - Full Coverage Foundation!


    I had used in the past but then went with drug store brands for a while because I just too lazy to go to department store.Now I am back on Double Wear and absolutely fell in love with it again! I got combination skin and often get oily in T zone in the afternoon. With this product, I only need blotting papers then my makeup is looking fresh again! 10/10!
  63. I wish I had found this sooner.


    I am 48, combination skin and I am still suffer with adult/cystic acne. I also have issues with foundation getting cakey, wearing off, getting patchy and breaking me out.

    I had almost given up on finding a foundation I was happy with.

    This has been the answer to my prayers. Once it is on it isn't going anywhere, it doesn't crease and appear cakey and hasn't broken me out.

    I would say it is medium coverage, it is buildable to a point, and it will let you spot conceal. I do you a powder with it, but that is a preference thing. I apply it with a damp sponge.

    I do double cleanse though when I wear it to be on the safe side, (but again that is a preference thing).

    I am now not going to by other foundations as I have now found the one!
  64. The Best !


    Have been using this foundation for over 5 years now and I have never looked elsewhere. Buildable product nor cakey whatsoever ! Love love, love !!!!
  65. Great Value


    This foundation is perfect for oily/ combo skin. I find that I lasts all day, all night even in the warmer months and the coverage is great
  66. Great coverage but tacky and flat


    I have ridiculously oily skin, clear but oily. Tried this on multiple occasions in cold and hot weather, loved the coverage but also felt that I looked very artificial. I prefer a more skin-like finish but this is more full glam. Makes my cheeks feel very tight and dry, so probably will not go back to this.
  67. In love


    This foundation is the best! It is so versatile and builds really well if you’re going out at night. The coverage is amazing and the price is great value for money. A bottle lasts me over 3 months
  68. long lasting


    Good overall foundation but unfortunately causes breakouts for me. it's long lasting and has good coverage that lasts all night, i will still occasionally wear it for special occasions despite the breakouts
  69. Full coverage and stays put!


    I admit that as a stay at home mum I don't use this daily as I don't need full coverage (it's coverage is impeccable), but this foundation has been my go-to for weddings and events for many years now without fail. I wore it for my own wedding nearly 11 years ago too and it really is the most rock solid foundation I've ever used. It stays put and looks absolutely perfect for hours on end and never goes shiny or starts to wear off. It also doesn't run when I sweat or with tears. I would recommend this to anyone.
  70. I am loyal to this product!


    I have combination skin ( dryer in winter months ) and have olive complexion. Ever since I discovered this product ( 3-4 years ago,,, shade: Shell Beige ), I have not even thought about trying another brand. It provides excellent coverage ( once you find your perfect shade ), it lasts all day and night and just compliments my skin.
    Can be applied thinner for a just a lighter coverage by using a wet applicator too.
    I never run out of this product. Normally, I always have a spare new/full bottle in case life gets too busy to go and shop.
  71. Perfection in a bottle


    Love this foundation. Good, smooth even coverage. Buildable but it also has terrific staying power and lasts all day at work. Make sure you get the perfect shade match to your skin tone. There are many choices so something will match perfectly.! My shade is Rattan.
  72. There’s nothing better


    I love this foundation so much. It matches perfectly with my skin tone and provides such good coverage
  73. My oily skin HG


    this is honestly the best foundation I’ve ever used. Unlike most hyped products, this one really did not disappoint and is long lasting. the coverage is also amazing. My only complaint is that the foundation will come off of my nose after a few hours but that’s a problem I can’t fix no matter what I do and is my most problematic area when it comes to oily skin.
  74. Good coverage


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

    its me

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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