Estee Lauder double wear foundation Review

My write-up on Estee Lauder double wear light foundation reviews

It is my holy grail foundation. Due to the buildable formula, I believe that it gives you the options to have the best of both natural and full coverage. There is a wide shade range, so I’m sure there’s a shade for almost everyone.

Whether you are extremely pale or too dark, they have a shade for you. The most significant advantage of this foundation and, honestly, its legacy is that this stuff stays.

Usually, Foundation doesn’t oxidize as the day passed; that is a problem with many darker shade foundations. I will say this foundation does sometimes oxidize, so keep that in mind when picking a shade.

It is a water-based foundation. But as the formula is very matte, I recommend mixing a pea-sized amount of moisturizer with a foundation for dry skin

Even if I’m sweating, the foundation stays, put without caking up, and looks flawless. If your skin is adequately hydrated, primer is not required, and makeup will last longer. It contains SPF 10 that is a physical sunscreen.

It never gets to the point where it looks horrible or even a little bad. What I also love about Double Wear is it does not clog my pores. It’s an oil-free foundation that works great for people with oily skin.

You will notice a difference between this foundation and any other one you have tried. When you first put it on, it doesn’t look great, but that’s okay, give it like 15 minutes for it to melt in, and it looks gorgeous, and it plays well with other face products like concealer, primer, highlight, blush, etc.

No foundation use to “stay in place” for more than 2-3 hours with oily to combination skin, you had to do touch-ups and setting the face again and again, but with this foundation, that problem is gone as it keeps the oil-free look. 

Since the Estee lauder double wear maximum cover foundation is a lightweight and oil-free formula, it won’t irritate breakouts. It is my most long-wearing foundation, and I swear it lasts more than 8 hours. It is the type of foundation where it seems great the longer you have it on.

I think Revlon ColorStay Foundation is the exact dupe of Estee lauder double wear foundation.

The bottle comes with a screw-top gold cap in a dark blue cardboard box with gold writing. It has gold and black lettering on the glass bottle. As it is made with sturdy glass, it does not travel friendly.

Finish: Matte


The coverage is impressive, depending on how it’s applied. The coverage is buildable. However, I recommend going for the medium coverage because it tends to look cakey and streaky when used heavily. There is a tone for the majority of skin colors. The coverage is flawless for about 7-8 hours, and then it does slightly change depending on the weather or condition.

How to apply Estee lauder double wear foundation:

Apply foundation using foundation brush, sponge, or fingertips. Start from the middle of the face to outward to make smooth, even skin. Apply a loose powder to clear it above Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup as a setting powder for a perfect matte finish.
