About the Double Wear Foundation Claims

– What it is: lightweight, oil-free, 24-hours, double change color/smudge, lasts through humidity and head
– Finish: matte, flawless, natural

– Formula: oil-free, oil controlling, dermatologically tested, non-acnegenic (won’t clog pores), fragrance-free
– Skin type: oily/combination, acne/blemishes, dark spots


Okay, I’m not even going to waste any time beating around the bush with this one. I bloody love this foundation. I’ve actually tried all the Estee Lauder foundations and they’ve all worked great for me. This one, in particular, is great for those of us that need a bit more coverage but still want a natural finish. I suffer from hyperpigmentation and acne scars and this foundation perfectly conceals and hides all my marks with a matte finish. With this foundation, I don’t use a concealer under my eyes. Seriously, the coverage with this foundation is unreal and a little goes a long way.

While I do love this foundation, I only apply it all over my face for special occasions when I want to make sure my makeup stays put through the night. However, if I’m using it on a day-to-day basis, I don’t usually apply it all over my face. Because my scars are localized in the cheek area, I apply this on my cheeks and something more light wear everywhere else. Of course, if you’re also doing this, make sure to blend well and that the 2 foundations being used match!

Estee Lauder foundations, in general, are really great if you’re looking for a natural finish. I’d recommend the DoubleWear Light if which is exactly like this foundation but more sheer, natural and lightweight if you’re not looking for much coverage.

PROS:                                                   CONS:

– great coverage                                                           – heavy for everyday
– natural, matte finish                                                – sticks to dry patches
– great for sensitive/acne prone skin                – no pump (messy)
– long wearing                                                               –  oxidizes (changes color)
– oil-controlling

    1. I’ve seen people buy the 10 dollar pumps being sold at MAC work perfectly w the double wear. You might just have to trim the nozzle from the bottom, but other than that it seems like it fits perfectly!
