15-hour wear, light as air: long-wear makeup is now lightweight makeup.

It's makeup that keeps up. Fresh, natural, comfortable. Goes on sheer, leaves skin free to breathe all day.

Controls oil. Resists smudging and won't "melt" off through heat and humidity.

For a look that stays vibrant and fresh whether it's a workday, a workout or a weekend. Smooth it on once and don't think twice about it.

I love this foundation, I prefer this one over the regular double wear because this one doesn’t feel as sticky or heavy on the skin as the original. Kind of has a whipped feeling to it and you do not need a lot to cover. Would say medium coverage and great on comb skin. I however don’t know how this would be on dry skin. I would say use a hydrating primer if you choose to use this and have dry skin!

I use this foundation mostly in the summertime because while I don’t necessarily like to wear make up I just feel more put together when I do. I’ve read a lot of great reviews about this foundation and it did not disappoint. You don’t even feel like you are wearing make up yet it gives you a really nice coverage.

I absolutely love this makeup. So natural looking and actually matches my skin tone. I purchased this make up over a year ago and use it almost daily...and I still have make up to use. It’s a little pricey, but worth it.

I’ve been buying this makeup for over 5 years! I’ve tried other brands and like this the best so far. I love how light the makeup feels. It doesn’t feel or look like I’m wearing any makeup. Most foundations make my skin feel too dry and heavy, which makes me feel uncomfortable. I don’t like the look of caked on makeup and prefer the natural look. Even though this foundation is light, it covers well. I highly recommend. I buy it in Macy’s at the Estée Lauder counter. They will match your skin color and give you a week sample to try out for free.

At first I was a little hesitant to wear face make up. My skin has always been OK, not very many problem areas. I bought this as a sample to cover up a scar underneath my eye, and ended up falling in love with it! I actually mix the 2.0 with a 3.0 to further match my skin tone, you do not need a whole lot of this as it goes very far. I’ve been wearing it for about three or four years now and I will not wear anything else. It’s translucence enough where you don’t feel like you’re wearing caked on make up, but it provides enough coverage! though it may seem expensive, it lasts a very long time and very much worth it!

I love this foundation! It is great for my very pale skin and blends wonderfully. I can build it up to a medium coverage which is about where I like it because I do not like to hide my freckles. I would totally recommend this product. I have mostly normal skin with a couple dry spots and it did not make those dry spots stand out. It blended well with my concealer, bronzer, blush, highlighter. Fully recommend this product and will continue to purchase!!

I started to use this foundation because i wanted to try something new, but im not convinced yet, its has a nice natural finish, its medium to light coverage, its very good for combination skin and looks very natural( its like using a bb cream)  the thing is that it doesn't say in place when you're applying highlighter or blush, i don't recommend it for special occasions, its more like for every day use.

I LOVE this foundation. I'm one of those women who constantly touches her face and fidgets alot so my foundation always gets rubbed off. With this makeup it's not too heavy like the original double wear, which gives me a cakey dried out look. I've gotten so many compliments on how flawless my skin is, little do they know it's really not. This foundation also stays on (mostly) when I go sharktooth hunting at the river and get all sweaty, that's how I test all my foundations. It with stood 90 degree direct sunlight after 6 hours... now that's stay-in-place makeup

I have never tried the regular double wear but I have heard phenomenal things about it. I was looking for a new foundation that I could use on a daily basis that wasn’t so heavy on the skin and after a lot of research I purchased this bad boy. Wow! It is my absolute favorite foundation of all time. It still manages to be a medium to full coverage foundation that is certain buildable. My skin still feels like it can breath and doesn’t feel too cakey. I just wish they offered a better shade range and that it was sold in more stores. I had to purchase directly from Estée Lauder

I really like the texture of this foundation. It was light weight but still provided good coverage as I don’t wear foundation on my entire face. My only complaint were the color options and that even the neutral shades tended to turn orange once they warmed up on my complexion.

How does this compare to the original Double Wear?

I find that as the day goes on, my original Double Wear Foundation can start to settle into fine lines and pores. Does the Light version still do that? I'd also like to know what the difference in coverage is? I find the original to be medium to full coverage.
