This is my everyday foundation. Oh man, this product is so amazing. I cannot express how much love I have for this product. It’s so beautiful on your skin. Easy to blend out even when you use a brush or a beauty blender. I have used this product over 25 times and I have so much product left. I love the packaging it’s very cute and I love how I wear this during the heat and it won’t smear off. It’s a must have
I really wanted to love this foundation since everyone on social media does. However I had to return 2 bottles of foundation on to ha e a third one that I am left with that still doesn’t work for my complexion. There are some great colors in the line up but for some reason I noticed that my makeup looked flawless in natural lighting and absolutely grotesque in dark settings with a flash. Some how I get flashbacks with this product so I only use it when I do makeup demos.
I absolutely love this foundation! It is the perfect formula for my skin. I have dry skin and and long as I apply a moisturizer before hand this foundation does not cling to my dry patches. It lasts all day with or without a setting spray and doesn’t break down around my nose which is normally the first spot it starts to break down. It is very buildable and does not take a lot of product to get a full coverage. I would recommend this foundation to anyone with dry skin!

Every time I go back to this foundation I wonder why I ever went to another brand. I have combo skin and I use a primer. My foundation stays in place and it doesn’t settle into my fine lines and wrinkles. This is my #1 foundation. The only downside for me is that it doesn’t have spf, but as long as I have it in my moisturizer I’m all good. This has great, lasting coverage and a little goes a long way.
I keep trying to find a foundation that looks better on my skin but I simply can’t. This foundation lasts all day on my skin and there are so many colors that you can find a match for any skin tone. The formula is very smooth and creamy, making it easy to apply. I recommend using a blending sponge, it comes on flawless and streak-free. Your skin also comes out really clear and smooth in photos and I find myself getting the most compliments when I used this foundation. It’s a little sticky though so I do recommend setting it with a good setting powder, my favorite would be Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good coverage foundation. If you are looking for something lighter they do have two alternative version of their Doublewear that are lighter-wear.
I have been a loyal Estée Lauder foundation and mascara girl for literally 20 years. I have tried so many foundations over the years as they’ve been hyped up and every👏single👏time👏 I come back to EL and within the last 6 years, Double Wear has been my ROD. I would buy this by the gallon if I could! My skin is very reactive, acne-prone, and likes to go from oily to dry in the same day. DW stays put, is medium to full coverage, truly lasts all day and does not oxidize AT ALL. A little goes a long way and a regular sized bottle tends to last me 3-4 months. It applies great with clean fingers or a flat edge kabuki. I really can’t say enough about this foundation! Don’t believe me?

This has to be one of my top 5 foundations this formula is so beautiful. Your skin will look amazing. I have combination skin and it does well for my skin type. The coverage is medium/full it's very build-able and the finish soft not to dewy and not mate. The only reason I'm not giving this foundation 5 stars is because I've noticed in pictures I do get some flashback. (Meaning my face looks white) not like a ghost but more on the pale side I think it's the SPF but if you like to warm up your skin with bronzer and turn the flash off it seems to work.

This is a super full coverage foundation that’ll really last so long. I always use this when I go somewhere really hot and I know I’ll be sweating, like I recently went to Las Vegas and I took this. It’s actually pretty affordable for a luxury brand! I think this would be great for oily skin but I have really dry skin so I have to make sure I moisturize and really prep my skin before I put this on.
Review for: Deep Amber more...
I love how rich and elegant I look in this foundation. It has a good amount of coverage. I would say it is medium to full coverage. It has a dewy finish on my skin and the foundation feels very heavy but many people I know that likes this foundation doesn't have these two problems. It could just be my face. I am not an oily skin person so it is confusing. However, it is still a beautiful coverage!

i have the shade 5N2 Amber Honey. i do mot care for this foundation at all. i am brown with yellow undertones. this was the closest thing they had to my skin and i went to go get matched twice. this foundation is very red. which is wear companies hit & miss when they’re making their brown shades. either they’re red or gray. this foundation claims to be lightweight. i felt it on my face within an hour of wear. claims to be medium buildable. that’s true. you can build to full coverage. 15 hrs? definitely not. this foundation transfers.
Q & A
Is this worth money and how much coverage is it?
Does this foundation cover really good?
Could this foundation make your face look dry for someone that has combination skin? Does this foundation look natural on the skin when you look up close?
Is this worth the price? does it come in fair?
Is it just this one from Estee Lauder that you like/dislike or do you like their other ones? And If you dislike it what do you recommend?
