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!

Liquid Silk - 12-04-2018 by

Pure curiosity is what got me to try this foundation, since everyone was talking about it and raving about the results. I have very pale skin, and yet this doesn't create any orange lines around my neck or make me look sallow, paler or orange (I use shade 'Ecru'). The finish is soft and matte, with no powdery feel or settling in fine lines. The finish also last a long time, which has been perfect for me during sweaty summery days. The hint of SPF is a bonus, which meant I didn't get burnt during little outings where I normally would. This foundation has worked for my pale, oily skin and has lasted me a long time. It's definitely a repurchase and tell everyone product!

Amazing Foundation - 11-04-2018 by

Look no where else! This foundation is just perfect. So many colours to suit you as well. Its matte, so great for oily skin. Stays on all day. Covers imperfections.
Have been using this product for many years and have tried to find something better and i cant!!

Amazing - 11-04-2018 by

Flawless coverage always come back to this foundation, have also mixed with Smashbox studio skin and its amazing. On its own it is matte and if exfoliated before use doesn't leave your skin flakey or dry. Amazing for oily skin!
Be careful with shade range and the lighting when getting matched!!

THE BEST FOUNDATION - 05-04-2018 by

I have tried numerous foundations from all of the top brands and have finally settled on this formula. I find it to provide great coverage, blends well with a brush and doesn't wear off all day at work. I can only advise, to not wear it if you are planning on working out or sweating a lot as it will literally run off your face. This is the first foundation where I have not had an issue colour matching. Would be very reluctant to try another foundation now. Perfect for any occasion

My Absolute Holy Grail Foundation - 05-04-2018 by

I can not say a bad word about this foundation. My colour match is 1c1 Cool Bone and it is an absolutely perfect match you can get full coverage using 2 pumps and a brush or a medium-high coverage using 2 pumps and a beauty blender. It looks absolutely fantastic it doesn't cake up and lasts super well on my oily skin with or without a primer.

Literally stays all day with no transfer - 05-04-2018 by

LOVE LOVE LOVE this product. This is the only foundation I have found that my oily skin does not wear off after a few hours. LITERALLY STAYS ALL DAY WITH NO TRANSFER. If you have oily skin like me I would definitely recommend trying this product.

Not so sure about this foundation for oily skin - 05-04-2018 by

I had trouble finding a shade in this foundation which matched my fair skin a few years ago which meant I was not able to try it out. Thankfully, there seems to be much more of a colour range this time around and I chose the lightest shade, if you have quite pale skin then 1C0 Shell is the shade for you. I was really hoping this foundation would work for me because I was so excited to see it in a colour I could actually use, however, with my oily and textured skin due to hormonal breakouts, this foundation didn’t stay matte for long in my t-zone and looked really cakey on my acne, it also wasn’t the best coverage as I could still see redness underneath the foundation even with a few layers. I don’t think I would re purchase this foundation and will look elsewhere for a foundation which suits my skin type.

HG Foundation for 2 years - 05-04-2018 by

One of the best foundations I have used, i have oily/combination skin and this stays in place really well! The only downside is that when I want extra staying power I can't seem to use a primer underneath as it makes my pores look huge when i put this on over top!

Great for oily skin - 03-04-2018 by

I have superrr oily skin, and I really struggle to find a foundation that lasts in my skin and doesn’t break up. This really does the job. It has very high coverage and a nice matte finish. I find it looks slightly caked on the skin, not a very natural look.

My Go To Everyday Foundation - 03-04-2018 by

This has been the foundation I've used every day for the last 3 years. Yes, I've tried other foundations here and there, but they never live up to this foundation and I always ended up going back to it. I love the wide colour range which has the perfect colour and tone options for when I'm at my lightest and when I'm most tanned. It is seriously the only foundation I ever need, for any occasion. It is extremely long wearing and is full coverage. I usually apply this at 7am and it still looks just as fresh and perfect by 7pm after a full day of work. I apply with a beauty sponge which stops it from looking to thick and allows me to build up the coverage where needed. I would highly recommend buying the pump that goes with this foundation in order to not waste product. 2-3 pumps tend to be enough for one application and one bottle tends to last me 3 months.

Takes a while to get the hang of it - 29-03-2018 by

My first few adventures with this foundation were disastrous. I now find it wonderful.

It needs to be applied in very thin layers or mixed with a lighter product.

Personally, I wear a single thin layer for everyday use. It lasts all day, whereas every other foundation I have tried wears off by lunchtime on my combination skin.

It's also lovely mixed with an illuminating primer or other brightening product.

Holy Grail - 27-03-2018 by

This foundation seriously lasts all day and night and I couldn't recommend it more. It doesn't cause my acne-prone skin to break out plus it keeps my oily skin nice and matte. I found that applying this with a beauty blender gives the same amount of coverage as a brush would but it looks more natural. Love love love!

Long lasting with great coverage - 27-03-2018 by

I’ve always been self conscious of my skin and only preferred full coverage to hide my dark circles and pigmentation. Can’t believe I didn’t discover this foundation sooner. I can easily layer it to make it thicker if I want. It lasts all day! And doesn’t get that shiny look in the afternoon. With a powder over the top It stays matte all day. A bottle lasts me around 3 months. It defiantly leaves a great cover and flawless smooth finish. Highly recommend.

love love love!!! - 22-03-2018 by

This is an amazing full coverage foundation and is the best I have used so far. Very long wearing and the finish is flawless, blends so well and is very lightweight on the skin. The shade shell matches my skin perfectly. The only down fall is it is a little bit on the expensive side however I promise you it is worth every cent and it will not disappoint!!!

Best foundation I've ever used. - 19-03-2018 by

I have been using this foundation for three years now and I have never thought about switching! I have fairly oily skin at times and this foundation doesn't budge all day unless I'm in 90% humidity! It also doesn't make me break out which is amazing for a full coverage foundation.

New loyal fan!! - 19-03-2018 by

I've heard great reviews about this foundation but heard it was better suited for oily combination skin. I have normal/dry skin and am quite sensitive. I actually love it!!
I'm a full face, full coverage kinda girl and could never quite find a foundation that was full coverage without being cakey and texturing. I've now found my holy grail and I'm hooked!!
This foundation is full coverage while still feeling light weight. It hides all my pigmentation and gives my skin an airbrushed finish.
I make sure to moisturise well in the morning followed by an illuminating primer and don't find it dry at all. If I'm having a no fuss kinda day I don't even need to set it with powder.
The bottle is glass and doesn't come with a pump which is a bit of a bummer but a small price to pay considering how good this foundation is so I'm still giving 5 stars!!

One of my favourites - 19-03-2018 by

This looks perfect all day! Tied for first place with my other fave, Lancome teint idole

Great for oily skin - 13-03-2018 by

Love this foundation! Always end up coming back to it since it’s so good with my oily skin, definitely recommend!

A foundation that won't clog your pores - 27-02-2018 by

I have used many foundations over the years and this is by far the best. My skin is 100 times better using Estee Lauder it truly is a foundation that lets your skin breathe! A must have!

Not an old lady brand - 25-02-2018 by

I'd always shied away from Estee Lauder, as it's what my mum wore, and that made it seem dated to me. I kept seeing youtubers using it, and took advantage of a 10 day sample from a local counter. Holy wow, such great coverage!

I bought a full bottle from adore beauty, and it took a little to get my application right. For me what works best is a damp beauty blender, and to do one section of my face at a time, because this stuff dries quick.

It's a pricier foundation if you're moving from the 'drugstore' brands, but the bottle lasts ages, and probably even longer if you invest in the pump!

Great coverage but a bit dry - 21-02-2018 by

Ever seen those ads where girls come out of the ocean flawless?
They were probably wearing this...

This product has great coverage and is long lasting but I felt that it's a bit drying, I end up soaking myself in mist and hydrating sprays to maintain a fresh face.

Fave foundation ever! - 21-02-2018 by

The best foundation I've tried, blends well, is buildable, colour is a perfect match to my skin. Excellent coverage without looking cakey. Lasts all day too - definitely as good as all the reviews say it is!

AMAZING COVERAGE! Great for oily or acne prone skin! - 20-02-2018 by

This foundation is amazing and I would highly recommend it to friends! It gives you a full natural coverage and is the perfect foundation for oily or acne prone skin!

Can't deny that it lasts - 20-02-2018 by

It's high coverage and it stays, but it is thick so would I recommend using a translucent superfine powder with it to reduce the chance of it looking cakey. I use a rice based powder with it and I'm totally satisfied with the finish. The only thing I don't like about this foundation is that it starts to thicken once you get about halfway through it, combined with a glass bottle makes it hard to get the last of it out. I have a lot of discoloration and redness and after using this I would honestly feel mortified to wear anything else to work because this is all I've tried that will cover it and stay put.

Can't fault it - 19-02-2018 by

I have fair blemish prone skin with an uneven tone. This foundation is one of my HG products. I live in a hot humid climate and have an active job and it just sits in place!

To have it look like skin it's all in the application! I wet a beauty blender (real techniques brand) with the skindinavia bridal setting spray then use that to press the foundation into my skin, consider it glued down! Let it dry, then finish with double wear powder for maximum coverage. I've done a 16 hour shift and came out the otherside looking alright!

Love - 19-02-2018 by

This is my fav foundation, I try others but I always come back to this. I have oily skin and this lasts perfectly through the day.

Great for those with acne or congested skin. - 16-02-2018 by

A great oil free / full coverage foundation for those with acne or suffering with congested skin.

Full coverage, stay-all-day foundation - 14-02-2018 by

This is an excellent full coverage foundation that lasts all day (with setting powder)
I do have to be careful with the amount I use because it can look very cakey if applied liberally. I do not like the bottle for this reason. It is very easy to pour too much out.

Difficult to find a formula to rival this one!

My current staple - 14-02-2018 by

It took a trial of two other colours til I found the best shade for me. It was worth the wait. I would give it 4.5 star. The finish isn’t the most perfect and luminous but it gives a great coverage for pigmentation and redness. The lasting power however redeems this completely and currently won’t use anything else in the qld humidity.
Paired with Laura Mercier powder and a setting spray this won’t budge

Perfect for my aged skin - 06-02-2018 by

Great coverage and lasts through doing a doubler at work. Its light and doesn't highlight my wrinkles. I've tried countless foundations, some of which I really love, but this one feels gorgeous on, not drying and has the stay power !

Best foundation out there! - 23-01-2018 by

I have been using this product for around 2 to 3 years, I have tried others in between, new ones and every time I come back to this one, it goes on smoothly, and does stay on all day with out a smudge! lasts through sweat and tears. It always looks flawless.

Best makeup I have ever used! - 23-01-2018 by

I have been using this makeup for the last year and it is the best foundation I have ever used. I have very oily skin and work in a variety of environments throughout the day, so I really give it a run for its money! I use it with the Estee Lauder The Mattifier Primer and I only have to blot with a tissue every now and again during the day. I apply with a dense foundation brush and then a light dusting of Double Wear powder...the best!

Great for oily skin - 17-01-2018 by

This foundation is amazing! Its very long wearing and i find it doesn't cake up on my skin. I have oily skin and this foundation lasts me the full day. It does slightly oxidise on me but it has an amazing finish and is very full coverage.

Amazing Coverage and Longwear - 17-01-2018 by

This is hands down the greatest foundation I have ever used. I have been using it for 1 year now and can safely say that 1. It covers all of my acne scarring and I NEVER need extra concealer and 2. I think my skin has improved from using it.
I work long hours and this stays put until I get home (i.e. midnight). I am terrible and always touch my face without thinking though, so sometimes I do powder my nose, but that is about it.
I wish the price would stop rising though!

Best Foundation Ever - 15-01-2018 by

Holy grail of liquid foundation. Works amazingly to cover imperfections - manages to not look cakey - and stays on all day. I will never wear another foundation again :)

Great foundation - 08-01-2018 by

Love it works great with my oily and acne prone skin
All my friends have brought it now because
I couldn't stop raving about it!
It makes your skin flawless and can't handle aussie heat!

Great foundation for long days - 27-12-2017 by

This isn't an everyday foundation for me (as a stay at home mum), but the best option for events etc I've yet come across. My face looks 'just-done' at the end of a long day with this on. The finish is very matte and the smell is very 'makeup' - I think a lot of makeup artists use this so it reminds me of having my makeup done for weddings etc. I do wish it came with a pump - having to buy one separately is very annoying - but overall I'm thrilled with the product and will repurchase!

Great foundation! - 19-12-2017 by

I have been using this foundation for around a year and am still in love! Colour is great (desert beige) for my complexion and it lasts all day! Sometimes I set with powder but it still looks great if I choose not to. Would definitely recommend.

Not too bad - 12-12-2017 by

This foundation has its ups and downs for me. I love that it definitly is long wearing and still stays perfect the next day and doesnt rub off onto your clothes or hands. But it is very dry and goes flakey looking on my nose :( if i didnt have to reapply on my nose halfway through the day i would say this is the best foundation i have!

Excellent Holy Grail Foundation - 16-11-2017 by

I switched to this foundation after using Nars sheer glow. I thought that there was no way this would be as good as Nars, especially given the big price difference. Boy was I wrong! The color is perfect for my skin tone (I use 5W1 Bronze) and it lasts all day without rubbing off. Perfect for someone like me who needs makeup up to last through the work day and evening. I have combination skin and this foundation works well with it, it isn't too heavy and doesn't make me break out. This is now the only foundation i use !

great cover a little bit goes a long way - 14-11-2017 by

im so glad i chose this foundation. I have rosacea and when i received this i used just the tiniest amount like a small fingertip to test if the colour i chose was right and it completely covered the whole side of my face and my redness and strangely enough the itchiness stopped on that one side of my face that i tested it on..and it lasted til i wanted to go to bed without oiliness or patchiness. Very impressed

Really stays all day - 14-11-2017 by

With oily skin this is the only foundation that is still on my face by 5pm. It is very full coverage and gives you a flawless look. I love it.

Hands down best foundation - 14-11-2017 by

This is such an amazing foundation, it feels beautiful on the skin, isn’t cankey and it stays on all day. LOVE IT

Best foundation - 13-11-2017 by

I have 17 foundations in my collection and I always come back to this one. I love the coverage, the matte finish, the feel and the longevity. Absolutely love it

Best foundation - 13-11-2017 by

I've searched for a long time for a good foundation and this is by far the best! I used to wear it every day but have now cut back to wearing it just on weekends. It has great coverage but doesn't look casket. It lasts all day, doesn't smudge off. It's basically perfect. I have oily/combination skin.

Perfect - 30-10-2017 by

I never write reviews but I just had to share my love for this product. Ive searched for years to find a full coverage foundation that a)stays in place, b) doesn’t add to the shine of my already oily skin, c) doesn’t feel caked on. This foundation gives the most flawless airbrushed look and keeps near perfect even during the most humid days in Queensland.
I normally buy two different colours, one for when I’m tanned and one for when I’m not. I can’t recommend this enough to anyone ! Take the plunge if you’re looking for quality, the price is so worth it.

Amazing!! - 24-10-2017 by

Love this foundation, so happy ive taken the plunge to spend a little more then usual, it stays on all day with the laura mercier translucent and napolean primer,
I used the shade finder tool to find the right colour and it was spot on

The only thing I find is it gets streaky with my foundation brush so i go over it with a damp beauty blender to create a flawless finish
Thanks a mill x

The best foundation! - 23-10-2017 by

I have been using this foundation for years and absolutely love it! I have light, combination skin and use 2N1 Desert Beige. When I wear this foundation I always get comments on how lovely and clear my skin and makeup looks. It gives excellent, non-cakey coverage that beautifully blends into my skin. My skin can get some oily spots, however, the foundation stays put all day and doesn't slide off in the hot climate I live in. The coverage is buildable so when my skin is clear I apply a small amount with my fingertips, but if I want a night / more dramatic look I simply apply with a brush or sponge and build up cover! I don't even need to use a concealer. This doesn't clog my pores at all! I will be using and recommending this foundation for years to come!


Perfect coverage, buildable, blendable, silky, heavenly foundation! Seriously cannot recommend this more. This bottle is priced so well for how effective it is. It covers, conceals, feels amazing, stays on through moisture and extreme heat and I don't feel all clogged up. Colour is perfect.. Buy it...
