Review for: 3W1 Tawny - Warm/Golden Undertone more...
The double wear formula is AMAZING for people looking for that full coverage look! I could be having the worst break out, or redness / irritation on my skin, and as long as I have my DW I can still feel confident going out and looking good. It's non-transferable property is the main reason I keep going back to this! Besides its wide range of shades! The fact like I can apply the foundation to my skin and hug people without worrying about it transferring to others' cheeks, clothes, etc makes me feel 100% comfortable and care free. Try a sample as soon as possible, you will never go back! And for those of you who do NOT like the full coverage they also have a Double Wear water fresh ("nude") formula that is amazing too!

Review for: 3N2 Wheat - Neutral Undertone more...
this is my ALL TIME FAVORITE. EVER. on the website it says that this is a matte foundation, But I think it is definitely more on the dewy side and that’s why I love it so much! personally I’m a huge fan of dewy foundations and mattes really aren’t my favorite at all so that’s a huge reason why I keep re-purchasing Estee Lauder double wear. and that it’s medium to full coverage but you really barely need anything and it’s super full coverage. It is very comfortable on the face and it applies incredibly smoothly. The only downside to this foundation is that it comes in a bottle without a pump so when you’re running low you really have to dig in the bottle to get the last bits of it out. usually I stick a brush inside of it and I can get the last of it but it’s really uncomfortable to do and it’s annoying to have to flip the bottle over to get the last of everything inside of it instead of just having a pump where it could just be easy and quick to grab the rest of the foundation. Other than that, I have no complaints about this foundation. it’s my ride or die, I love it so so much and I recommend it to everyone!

Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place MakeupI use the Honey Bronze 4W1 shade and I absolutely love it. I have combination skin with an olive/yellow undertone. Originally I was matched with 4N1 (which may be Tawny) and that color reflected red in photographs. However with my 4W1, I honestly can’t see myself switching to another foundation again. Not only is this foundation full and buildable coverage, but it smells amazing and doesn’t feel heavy on your face AT ALL! Plus, during long days I can be a culprit of falling asleep with my makeup on, and I wake up with absolutely ZERO breakouts. I’m literally, in love. Oh and the pump adapter can be bought at MAC (Estée Lauder owns MAC so the adapter is a perfect fit).

Review for: 2N1 Desert Beige, Other more...
This foundation has been a life saver for me. I have really bad discoloration and dark spots due to hormones. They call it pregnancy mask. Most women's go away, but mine only got worse. It makes me very self conscious. I used to be able to wear a tinted moisturizer, or a bb cream and be out the door. Someone suggested this foundation. I was hesitant at first because I didn't want anything heavy and make me look like I had a ton of makeup on.

Needless to say I fell in love after an estee lauder beauty advisor matched me and applied it all over. She sent me home with a sample and told me to test it out. That was a Thursday and on Saturday I was back buying it! Among other double wear products. It's an amazing line. I get so many compliments and get told my makeup looks "natural". I don't think these people realize how much they make my day when being told that!

Here are before and after pictures with NO filters (promise 🤞)! [product:estée-lauder-double-wear-stay-in-place-foundation] [product:estée-lauder-double-wear-stay-in-place-flawless-wear-concealer]

Review for: 2W1 Dawn - Warm/Golden Undertone more...
This has been my holy grail foundation for over 20 years.  I used to love this foundation because it is transfer proof, controls my oils, and stays in place with or without a primer for hours.  This does not separate on me.  I even fell asleep with this on and went 38 hours and still look flawless.  This sets matte, but does require a setting powder.  This is medium, but buildable coverage.  The biggest con is removing this foundation.  

The foundation does come in a nice bottle but has no pump.  This applies beautifully with a wet sponge and looks flawless.  Using a brush looks streaky (using different brand of brushes).  There is no scent and does not bother my sensitive skin.  

It is very hot and if I would sweat, I would take a napkin and dab my face with minimal transfer to napkin.  I can swim with this and looks beautiful with minimal transfer to goggles.  I would get so many compliments on my makeup.

I loved this foundation for years, but everything changed when I turned 40.  I have sunspots and huge pores on my cheeks.  This foundation settled into my pores.  I have tried multiple primers, but cannot get this foundation to work for me anymore.  The medium coverage does not cover my sunspots and I would apply layer and layer to my cheeks and I looked cakey at the end of the day.  I would look 10 years older.  

I am still on the hunt for a better foundation.  I still think this is the most long lasting foundation on the market.  

Pro:  super long lasting, sweat proof, 
Con:  settles into my pores, medium coverage

Review for: Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup SIZE 1 oz COLOR Dawn 2W1 - light to medium warm beige more...
Double wear by Estée Lauder is one of those cult products that I jumped right on the bandwagon for. I heard all the raving reviews and felt that I needed to try it out immediately! There is this foundation and one other that I always reach for due to their full coverage aspect as well as their multiple choices in shade. You really can get this matched down to a science-in fact there is a spot on their website that color matches you right over the internet and they were right on with my recommendation! Very good quality stuff, but these are no drug store prices! Keep that in mind when looking this baby up! Little bit of a sticker shock! Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup

Review for: 1C1 Cool Bone - Cool/Rosy Undertone more...
I'll start by saying that I really wanted to love this foundation. I have very oily skin and was looking for something that would provide full coverage, control my oil and last all day. I'd heard great things from lots of people and was hoping that this would end my foundation search once and for all. This foundation hit the nail on the head for the things on my wish list -- it covered my blemishes, withstood my workout 11 hours after application, and kept me from being shiny. However, it looked a tad cakey and made my pores look huge. I even tried it with three different primers hoping that one of them would make this work, but unfortunately nothing did the trick for those issues.

Review for: 2N1 Desert Beige - Neutral Undertone, 3N1 Ivory Beige - Neutral Undertone more...
This really is a great foundation. It has great staying power and works great on my oily skin. I do find that if I use too much it looks a bit cakey. But this is still my go-to foundation when I know I need it to stay on for a long day. The only other thing that bugs me is that I'm usually inbetween shades. I love that they have a neutral undertone line, but rarely am I all the way on to 2N1 side or the 3N1 side. So I always have to have both shades on hand so I can mix the perfect shade when I need it. I know I'm not alone when I say it's anyone's goal to find a foundation that is their perfect shade without having to do more work. Other than that though - definitely recommend!

Review for: Powder Spf 10 Face Powders Tawny 17 Tawny more...
I am living for this foundation! This is by far one of the best foundations i've tried so far! i have dry/combo skin and i think this sits beautifully on my skin. Some foundations i have tried in the past make my skin look like I have texture even though I have none. This foundation does not do that! it looks like my skin, but better! it also dries down enough where I feel like i wouldn't even have to set every part of my face. Also, I really like that they digitally matched me to the right shade at Ulta!

This is my favorite foundation of all time! I MEAN IT’S LITERALLY THE BEST. Take my word. Nothing better! I have used and tried hundreds of foundations in my lifetime given that I worked at Sephora for years!! This is the only foundation that last the whole entire day and night without fading or wearing. My skin is oily too, so the oil comes through, and my foundation still doesn’t move. The coverage is just perfect - it’s medium with buildable coverage and it hides all imperfections. The color selection has a wide range so you were bound to find your perfect match. It blends seamlessly and makes my skin look airbrushed! Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup

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?
