Review for: 1N2 Ecru, 2N1 Desert Beige more...
I really like this foundation!  For reference, I am in my mid 30s with combo/dry skin.  My skin is in pretty good condition as I have a meticulous skin care and skin prep routine.  This product claims to be for all skin types offering light coverage with a Matte finish.  Below are my thoughts based on my experience with the product and the product claims:

Shade: I am between 1N2 and 2N1 in Estee Lauder foundations.  I bought 2N1 as I figured I would most likely wear this during summer months when I want lighter coverage and will have a little more color.  2N1 is a decent shade match.  The undertones are pretty spot on.  I do find it difficult to match myself with Estee products.  

Coverage: I would agree that this offers light coverage.  It is very thin in consistency and very light weight, which I love.  It goes on like a dream and I don't have to spend a lot of time applying this to get a nice flawless base.  It evens out my skin tone and does a good job covering what I need covered while still looking like my natural skin.  

Finish: This claims to be a matte finish.  I think it is slightly more natural than matte but does a decent job controlling shine for being so light weight.  I do find that this tends to crease and can look a little cakey/separate in areas that I produce more oil.  However, this is par for the course on my skin and it does not bother me when I am using a lighter coverage foundation.  I use a bit of concealer in areas where I tend to get separation/creasing and set it with a powder and this definitely helps it to last longer.  

Staying Power: I find that this last pretty well throughout the day.  I do use a primer, set with a powder and setting spray.  When I follow this routine, I get minimal transfer and creasing and it seems to last through a full work day.  

I really like this foundation.  I wouldn't say it is a holy grail product of mine but it definitely gets the job done and lasts.  My biggest complaint is that it does not come with a pump!  I find that I waste product this way as too much will come out when I try to pour it out so that is something to keep in mind.  I would recommend this product, especially if you have more mature skin and prefer a lighter coverage.

Review for: 2N1 Desert Beige more...
Loving this foundation! I have always been a Double Wear can, but lately I have been on the hunt for something lighter as a day-to-day foundation. I've tried sooooooo many, but this one is it. It is a medium coverage but has such a beautiful finish that it totally works. It doesn't cake up around my nose (where I have dryness) or crease up in those unfortunate fine lines. I do have combo skin, some wrinkles (I'm almost 42) and some redness on my left check. I'm also prone to breakouts, but my skin actually looks and feels healthier for once.

This is a very runny consistency though. Be warned! I plan to get a pump so I don't waste product. The beauty blender seems to work best for applying. I have been using the Hourglass oeiner, but I plan to try it with Porefessional and Smashbox and will update. It lasts about 10 hours before I start to oily, and I just blotted with Tatcha papers at that point. Not quite as long-lasting as the original either, but still had 10-12 hours of beautiful wear!

Review for: 3W1 Tawny more...
This product should not have the “Double Wear” label. Like the original double wear, the Estée Lauder website claims 24-hour wear, but this nude water product was far from it. When I tested the product - after 3 years of using the original double wear - it only lasted 8 hours at most. By 6 hours, the product was for sure fading and moving and it looked very oily/sweaty. I was looking for a more natural looking foundation that offered buildable coverage (bc I love full coverage but don’t want to do a full face of makeup every day) and this product claimed to do both. Yes it was more natural and yes it had slightly buildable coverage. But this was not long lasting and it didn’t look good after several hours. I have barely any acne at my age and I could just image the issues someone who is trying to cover spots or other issues will encounter when using this product. If you’re interested in the product, definitely get a sample first.

Review for: 3W1 Tawny more...
Like many others, I really wanted to love this foundation. After watching several positive reviews by some of my favorite and most trusted You Tube beauty gurus, I decided to take the plunge.  This is a pretty expensive foundation so I went to Macys to get color matched. The associate who helped me was very nice and the color we selected, Tawny, is a perfect match.  As soon as I saw it I thought it was my skin only better.  This foundation is what I would consider a light to medium coverage. The first day I wore this I used the Estee Lauder primer and applied the foundation with a silicone applicator and buffed with a brush to finish.  It looked great.  I set with a setting spray and went about my day.  By the end of the day this foundation was breaking down badly. It was patchy on my cheeks and forehead and had settled into the creases of my nose and my pores looked huge. I was not happy but thought perhaps I applied too much.  The next day I tried the Benefit Porefessional primer and applied with my fingers and buffed with a brush.  It looked nice at first. However, close up, the foundation really clings to any baby hairs on your face and for me, did something strange on my nose. The foundation actually made it appear that my nose had tons of whiteheads!! I have no white or blackheads but this foundation was making it look that way.  I feel I spent a lot on this makeup and will have to keep using it but I don't think it's worth it and I would not purchase it again.

Review for: 2N1 Desert Beige more...
I love this foundation and can safely say that it is my favorite foundation yet. I had used a different shade the previous year but they have recently added many more and 2N1 is so perfect for my skin. The coverage is very high for me which I love because I just feel more comfortable using a higher coverege foundation so that my face looks flawless. This doesn't crease and doesn't come off when you sweat! There are so many good things about using this foundation. I think another great perk is that it doesn't oxidize and create a mask at the edges of your face. Its formulated for oily skin but I have dry skin and it was lovely. I have zero complaints and I am glad they have expanded the range of shades.

This is one of my favorite foundations of all time! Like it's in the running for my number one favorite! I can't decide between Estee Lauder Double Wear or Clinique Beyond perfecting foundation and concealer! They're both so amazing! The thing I love about the Estee Lauder Double Wear is that it is a very buildable coverage and you can build it all the way from a light to medium coverage to a medium to full coverage, and you can build it to be full with out looking like you have cake on your face! It's a very very nice well-made Foundation and I absolutely love it! It Blends like a dream, I personally prefer to use a damp Beauty blender when applying my Foundation but I have a planet with a brush before and it also works well. It really makes your skin look as Flawless as any makeup is going to. Another thing I love about it is it stays on your face, at least it does for me I have pretty normal combination skin, but it's never looks all dried up and it's never slid off it stays put for a long time or until you take it off. Estee Lauder Double Wear is honestly just a fine oiled machine in the makeup world! LOL without a doubt 5 stars oldie but a goodie!

Review for: 5W1 Bronze more...
 I LOVE the original double wear foundation so I had high hopes for this one because it's supposed to be lightweight and has SPF which is perfect for the hot summer months. It applied nicely but I wish it had more coverage. It was a little to watery for my liking and didn't offer much coverage so I had to layer it more. I have very oily skin and this product didn't do much to prevent me from getting shiny. The only plus was that I could blot without smudging my makeup

I bought this foundation back in January and I use it off and on. It is my go to foundation for when I need to do a quick makeup day. I love that it is so light on this skin but also provides the coverage I need. It sets nicely and does not oxidize. I was also suprised to see that the color I use (2N1 desert beige) matches my skin so good. It matches it more than the original double wear's desert beige. I would recommend this foundation to everyone. #teamdoublewear

Review for: 1N2 Ecru more...
I really like this stuff for more of a natural look! I do wish they’d expand the shades though. Even though the coverage says ‘sheer’ it actually gives pretty good coverage! If you’ve only got a few spots to cover, spot conceal and then apply this and it will look glowing and natural! I will buy this again, I love the glow and I also like the fact they added antioxidants! Pro tip, mix half this and half the regular double wear for added coverage with a little dew!

Review for: 1N2 Ecru more...
First i want to say is this is a really good foundation. It looks really natural, is very lightweight (more than the original Double Wear), and has a light coverage. The reason why i don't give it a 5 star is because it looks so natural that i consider is too expensive for what it does! I prefer the original double wear because i like more coverage. I also consider that this is a great foundation for young women whit a good skin.

Hey guys. I was on the hunt for a light coverage foundation that has spf in it for the summer. I heard great reviews about this one and I already own the double wear full coverage version. I have picked it up recently and loving how it makes my skin look. My only issue is that for some reasons it separates on my chin where I have the most texture. Do you have any ideas or tricks to make it stay longer?
