    Comments about Estée Lauder Double Wear Light Stay-In-Place Makeup:

    Very, very long lasting. I can put this on at 6am and it still looks good at 9pm (I set it with a powder and setting spray most day), but I can always count on this to wear well. Natural light to medium coverage, it doesn't build very well so if you are looking for full coverage you should consider spot concealing or the regular Double Wear.

    Best foundation ever

    By Iwona

    from Chicago

    Comments about Estée Lauder Double Wear Light Stay-In-Place Makeup:

    I purchased shades ranging from 3-4.5 based on how tan I am. I love this foundation. It's a lighter version and less thick then the original double wear. It stays on all day and I don't need to blot at all, I have normal combo skin and usually will get oily after 3/4 hours at work. I come home and it's matte still. My favorite foundation. Great coverage and buildable

    Beautiful foundation and stays all day

    By Arilana

    from Oklahoma City

    Comments about Estée Lauder Double Wear Light Stay-In-Place Makeup:

    I really love this foundation. It's been one of the best I've used so far. It's light and airy. The color I purchased perfectly matches my skin tone ( I have fair skin, so I got the lightest shade). It's pretty sheer/medium coverage and that's what I wanted because I don't like heavy makeup. I have combo skin, and it does make my skin a bit oily later in the day. I do use Smashbox primer under it, but it still looks really good even later in the evening (from putting it on in the morning before work). This is a bit pricey for me but it's definitely a nice foundation.

    Let down

    By Allie

    from PA

    Comments about Estée Lauder Double Wear Light Stay-In-Place Makeup:

    I got this because I thought it would be a sheer more hydrating version on the double wear. Idk what the difference is. This was just way too matte for me. It dried out my skin pretty badly and felt like I had chalk on my face. I have oily skin so that says a lot. It also was like straight up orange and I had the lightest shade.

      I got this as a sample. 1.5 i was sent. I have very dry skin. Didnt think this would work on my skin. I went ahead and heavily mosterized with my boots no 7. And threw this on. I really like the coverage and look of this. Stays on nicely, doesn't settle in lines. To my surprise i really like this. The color is to pink for me. I need more neutral but i think I might buy a full bottle.

        Comments about Estée Lauder Double Wear Light Stay-In-Place Makeup:

        I'm 35 with very oily skin. This is the first and only foundation I've found to actually control the oil and doesn't settle in my smile lines. The #1 compliment I get when wearing this is my skin looks smooth. Coverage is gorgeous and natural. I do not like the look of caked, heavy foundation so this is perfect.

              A:

              Hi Twilite - Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Stay-In-Place Makeup offers a sheer coverage, but is buildable. When you first apply it, the coverage is on the lighter side. However, if you prefer more coverage, you can simply add more to build to a medium coverage. Hope that helps!

          • Q:

            I wear 1N1 in the original double wear but it is a bit too orange on me.....would .5 be best in the light version? I am neutral warm toned. Also, is this formula sweat proof?

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              Hi Jessica - Thanks for reaching out. Typically, when a shade is too orange, that means the undertone is wrong. You'll want to check if Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup shade 1N1 Ivory Nude is too dark or just too orange (can be both too dark and the wrong undertone). Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Stay in Place Makeup Intensity .5 is the same undertone as 1N1 Ivory Nude, but a half shade lighter. If you feel like 1N1 Ivory Nude is just too dark, Intensity .5 is a great option. If you think 1N1 Ivory Nude is simply the wrong undertone, choosing a warmer (1W1 Bone) or cooler shade (1C1 Cool Bone) in Double Wear Stay in Place is a better option.

            I currently wear Estée Lauder double wear in 1N2 ecru - what shade should I get in light? Also is the formula similar to the original double wear just with lighter coverage?
            Asked on 3/24/2018 by MamaC from undisclosed

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              Hi MamaC - You'll wear Estée Lauder Double Wear Light Stay-In-Place Makeup in Intensity 1. Both foundations are long-wearing and transfer resistant. Double Wear Light is a lighter-weight formula that provides sheer to medium coverage and a natural finish, while the original Double Wear formula offers medium to full coverage and a matte finish. Double Wear Light also includes skin-balancing ingredients so that skin feels comfortable all day; never dry or tight.
