Review for: Est?e Lauder Double Wear Maximum Cover Makeup Creamy Tan Medium by Estee Lauder more...
I actually ordered this from Macy's because I'd read so many excellent reviews about this foundation. After using it though, it's my opinion that it needs to be advertised as body makeup only, specifically, smooth and flat tattoo coverage. First, there is no way that this can be applied without looking extraordinarily cake-y. If you have any drier patches, raised areas or bumps such as acne or acne scarring, this is absolutely not going to do anything other than call attention to them. I thought maybe I needed to shake the tube? I've tried applying this with everything from a my fingers to the mac toothbrush style, to my damp beautyblender, a damp real techniques sponge, a damp makeup wedge, the official Estee Lauder foundation brush, my eco tools foundation brush, my elf brush, my It Cosmetics foundation brush, my Luxie brush, my It Cosmetics stipple brush and the list literally goes on and on. I paired it with various moisturizers, primers and so on. I'm very experienced in makeup application and used to use Dermablend and I own just about every foundation on the market from drug store to obscure brands to extremely high end, and this is absolutely the worse foundation I have ever tried in my entire life. It's extremely dry and drying and is similar to Maybelline Dream Mousse, only thicker and it doesn't give the blurring effect. It's like applying Make Up Forever HD Step 1 Mattifying Primer (if it was pigmented) yet it does not conceal or fill pores. This is like a thick, water based sludge that is impossible to tamp down and buff, regardless of how little I use or how much. If you added water to your bare minerals original powder foundation, that is a good example of the consistency: powdery goo. It doesn't spread, and it calls attention to every pore, and I discovered lines I never knew I had when this sludge settled into them. It. Is. SO. Dry. I have severely oily skin and always have, and I have old acne marks to cover. This made me look like I was smack dab in the middle of a horrid breakout. I can't return it because then they'll charge me full price for the bonus this garbage came with, so I am totally stuck. I can't even recommend this as a concealer, as it doesn't even seem as pigmented as most concealers are. If you're considering this, it does run 4 shades (exactly) darker than the original Doublewear just FYI. The 1N1 shade I got is ORANGE. Bright orange. I'm wondering if this was a bad batch or a really bad backdoor fake? But I got it from here. I urge you to visit the counter and actually test it ON YOUR FACE not your hand because it's smooth in application on the hand and body but not on the face.

For those days when your medium-full coverage go-to isn't getting the job done, this is the best for maximum full coverage that I've come across so far! I had no luck with Dermacol (and beginning to think that I may have been duped on a knockoff because of how much that one does NOT work for me) so I returned to this one for the times when my adult acne issues flare up. It's a life saver! I have finger tattoos and this covers them up nicely as well. I will say that I wish they would come out with more shade options as the Ivory is still a bit off on my fair skin, but I've tagged teamed it with the regular EL DW in the shade that matches me best to get the coloration I've after. ***Use a light hand on this one ladies and gents!*** A little goes a LONG way and using too much can definitely cause creases and cakeiness, but I'm eager to re-stock so I can put my new Clarisonic Sonic Foundation Brush on my Mia2 to work and see how it turns out when paired with this foundation. If you have blemishes, acne scars, dark spots, etc give this a try! Pro Tip - Nordstrom sells it with free shipping & free returns, so if it's not what you're after once you've tried it you can return without issue.

If you have normal skin and need very full coverage then this foundation is for you. I bought this to cover my hyper pigmentation and it does the job but can feel heavy on my dry skin. I find it works better if I mix it with a dewy foundation or a moisturizer. It will cling to dry patches regardless so I always make sure to exfoliate and moisturize my skin very well if I know I’m going to be wearing this foundation. I only gave it 3 stars because the shade range is horrible and I have never found a good match.
Review for: 2W2 Rattan more...
I bought this one because my all time favorite Estée Lauder Double Wear was not available in my color. I bought the color 2w2 rattan which is my color in ELDW. At home I realized the colors are different. It’s darker and more orange. The good thing is it has a really good coverage. The downsides are: it does not look natural and really looks like you’re wearing a mask. But this might be because of the color. I watched on YouTube a review by Wayne Goss and he recommends to mix it with Mac strobe cream. This gave a nice glowy look, but I prefer a matte finish. Another problem is that it’s hard to blend, you have to work quickly. It is not as long lasting as ELDW and after 3-4 hours my skin got really oily. Definitely going back to ELDW.
Review for: 1N3 Creamy Vanilla more...
If you want extreme matte full coverage this is the foundation for you. I have oil skin n tend to lean towards high coverage foundation to cover scars n sometimes the tattoo on my face by my eye. This blends out beautifully I use a b.blender cuz it looks flawless n it's thick it controls my oil n dries dwn to a velvet matte finish it is very intensely matte flat so contouring is a must for me or at least bronzer/blush. This covers everything including my face tattoo n a little goes a long way it's lasted me almost a yr n almost everyday use. Keep in mind I find on me it does oxidize a shade darker and my only con which isn't that serious is u will get some transfer if u rub or lay ur face on fabric this is very very long wearing great for special occasions nights out or like me anytime I want velvet flawless skin I always get complimented wearing this I also have acne prone skin n experienced no allergies irritation or clog pores or acne

I’m in my late 30’s. I have all sorts of blemishes, including the worst kind to conceal...dark acne scars, malasma, dark circles under eyes, etc...Agh!!! But this my pretties, this foundation is the holy grail of all mid-high end foundations I have tried, and my pretties, this girl has tried on more than she can count! 😔 if you have oily skin or combo skin I highly recommend it, if your skin is dry, I would say to maybe try a moisturizer before applying. It beats out Estée Lauder Double Wear original foundation, Becca’s Ultimate Coverage foundation, Kat Von D’s Lock it and Dermacol concealer, and those were my faves until I found the mama of all mamas!!! If you have dark acne scars, you can thank me later!!! Estée Lauder Double Wear Maximum Cover Camouflage Makeup for Face and Body SPF 15
Review for: 2N1 Desert Beige more...
I got this on sale at an elder beerman going out of business sale. It’s a very matte finish. The coverage is unbelievable! But I found it hard to work with. I applied it with my hands and then attempted to blend it with a damp real techniques sponge. It wouldn’t budge, so I had to add some other foundation on top of it to get it to blend in.
Review for: 01 Ivory more...
This is a full coverage concealer, however I use just a dab to brighten up my under eye area and I place tiny specks on any imperfections on my face. It blends amazing, last all day as long as I set it with a pressed or loose powder. I have combination yet sensitive skin and every other face make up I try (even other foundations/concealers from Estée Lauder) cause my skin to go haywire. On numerous occasions I've tried cheaper products and way more expensive products, only to return to this staple beauty product in the end. It's amazing! So amazing that this is the first time I'm taking the time to write a review (even though I've used this product for years..lol..I know, how selfish for me to keep this juicy chunk of knowledge to myself for so long). Keep in mind that only need a VERY small amount because a little goes a LONG LONG way.
Review for: 2N1 Desert Beige more...
This is one of favorite foundations of all time. I have combo skin and my skin LOVES this stuff. It’s so full coverage, you need the finest amount to cover your full face! It last crazy well and I love mixing this in with other products and on its own. It does have a satin matte finish so if that’s not your thing, I don’t think this is for you. Just amazing.
i am OBSESSED with this foundation. I am a full coverage girl with some pretty severe oily skin. I can put this on in the mornings before i start my day, and have to make minimum touch up and if i do its only a little bit of blotting. I did learn the hard way that this needs to be washed off every night, since it is full coverage it can clog pores.
