Most Helpful Positive Review The Best Foundation I Have Ever Used in My Life
First of all, my complexion is a mess. I have facial scars, freckles, and sun damage. I always wanted to have a smooth, flawless finish and I could never achieve that until I did some research and gave this foundation a try. I have tried everything under the sun...Tarte, EVERY drugstore brand imaginable, Clinique, BareMinerals, etc. and none even come close to this one. My skin is average, not too oily, not too dry. It is somewhat sensitive but this foundation has never given me a problem. It goes on beautifully and smoothly and covers imperfections like a dream. It is not cakey, and it does not flake or dry out. Even though it is full coverage it is as light as a feather and a tube of this lasts forever! You only need about 3-5 tiny drops to cover your entire face perfectly, which to me evens out the somewhat higher cost. I am somewhat fair skinned, leaning toward a medium tone and I use Creamy Vanilla in winter and Creamy Tan in summer. I have never been able to find a "tan" shade that didn't look orange, but this one is absolutely perfect. I cannot say enough good things about this foundation. One of my co-workers asked me what kind of makeup I used because she thought my skin was FLAWLESS. Then she saw me after I took my makeup off and was even more amazed at how this foundation perfected my complexion LOL!
Most Helpful Critical Review great coverage but...
Loved the coverage on this but after the second time wearing it I got a huge cystic pimple. I looked at the ingredients and it has petroleum and 2 different oils. I think if you have mature skin that doesn't break out easily you might like this. Also the color selection is pretty lacking. I got the lightest color and it was at least 2 shades too dark. The original double wear is my holy grail foundation and never causes me to break out so I didn't think I'd have any problems with this one.I should have looked at the ingredients before I purchased this.

I have extremely oily acne prone skin and I've tried so many different foundations with primers that are specific to my skin needs, and it's challenging trying to find the best combination for oily mature skin. This foundation is very mattifying and I really wanted to like it, but it's to mattifying and makes my pores look worse. If you have oily skin with no flaws this is for you.
Not for my skin
Lita from Dallas
I have oily skin plus open pores the foundation did not fit with my type of skin it look to cacky plus did not look smooth on pores
Don't waste your money!

I've used estee lauder double wear and love it for years and love it but wanted to try something with a little more coverage. This product is horrible. I applied with a brush, it blended nicely. I used my normal skin care routine which is lotion and a primer. After about 20 minutes it had settled horribly into every fine line. It also cracked on my jaw area. Feels like double wear when it's on so no difference there. I will just use it as a concealer under double wear.
Only buy this foundation.. The best
Sandee from SE FLorida
Use this foundation daily to hide facial defects. Goes on smoothly. Nice color. Lasts long time since you use little at a time.
She is THE QUEEN!
Product Junkie from Georgia
Oily, Greasy & Slippery skin types need this foundation in their life! I feel in love with the Double Wear Stay-In-Place Foundation but wanted to give the Maximum Cover Camouflage a try since Ulta had it on sale and it doesn't disappoint! Under a face mask in Georgia's heat it will NOT budge, smear, transfer or Crack! it gives a clean smooth flawless look unmatched by other brand I've used before.
I've cheated on her!
anital from FL
I used this for years and then tried other things. She is back on my makeup table and I missed her so bad!!! Smoothing and complete coverage. I love this stuff. I will never cheat again!!!!
Definitely the best!
Shannon from Acworth, Ga
I have used this foundation for the past 6 years and refuse to use anything else...it makes your face look flawless!
I used this product back like 20+ years ago.
Pat from Laredo,Tx.
We all know a little goes a long way! And primer and moisturizer and sunscreen should all be done before. I know all this and still didn't do it. But overall great product.
Run and get this girl!
Helloquisha from Texas
The best full coverage foundation I've ever tried. So much so that I didn't even need concealer for any of my dark spots— like none!! I've used Ester Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place foundation for about five years and have always liked it in conjunction with a concealer. But now being able to remove one step from my makeup routine (because lazy girl!) and one less product on my face is awesome. Go out and get this seriously!!
New Favorite foundation preference!
B97 from Sumter, South Carolina
I was skeptical about this foundation because I used the glass bottle of Estée Lauder and it was EXTREMELY oily and didn't give me any coverage. I tried a different route and purchased this one from Estée Lauder and yessss girl yesss 👏🏼👏🏼 way to bring it back and take back all my regrets of ever purchasing Estée Lauder because it provided and gave me exactly what I wanted! My new foundation will always be this now. I freaking lovveeeee it 💓
My holy grail still after 30 years
Nemos mommy from West Virginia
I have been wearing this since the 80s . They changed the formula some years ago but it's always been my holy grail . This really is the best
Totally amazing coverage!!!
Jess from Texas
I don't ever give reviews but I had to because I have tried all types of name brand products but nothing comes close to this!!!
I recommend this product to hide dark spots or melasma.
LivLovLaf from Arizona
I bought this product for the purpose of covering my dark spots and melasma in the cheeks area. Very happy with the coverage, and how it lasts all day. It doesn't feel cakey, even in hot Arizona weather. If you're considering purchasing for the same purpose, I do recommend, it's worth the price!
First time purchased.
Lori from Spokane,Wa.
Only product that's ever covered my spider veins.
It's a keeper!
Lisa from Nashville NC
This product was recommended to me by the sales person for a cluster of broken blood vessel's that I have on my nose. It is by far the best coverage that I have ever seen. I do only spot it on my face not my whole entire because it is a little heavier
I love this product! It's is light weight and lasts all day
Karlie from Hampton, Virginia
I have dark spots and this foundation covers them up nicely.
Not good for blending
TLP from Melbourne, FL
Full coverage, but it didn't blend with my skin tone. It looked very unnatural and I could still see dark areas from my melasma
Amber from Georgia
I have tried many foundations over the years, and this one has taken the lead as my new favorite! It covers everything and a little goes a long way. It gives you a matte, velvety finish. So prettyand long lasting wear. Try it! It won't disappoint you.
Ala from Pikeville
Love this foundation and little goes a long long way!! I dot it all over my face spray my Mac setting spray and it literally looks perfect!!! Stays all day and is full coverage! I've used this foundation for 15+ yrs and I've tried many with same claims as this and nothing has ever beat it!!!
Do not use a Beauty Blender
JaclynS from Greenwood,IN

Use it everyday and have for years. Stays on all day for work!
ForeverSyl from Ohio
I have significant vitiligo on my face and am self conscious about it. This product does a great job at camouflaging my discoloration.
This is my new go-to foundation!
Krissy21 from Idaho Falls, ID
Flawless, full-coverage that I've been looking for! Absolutely amazing stuff. Doesn't feel heavy at all but covers beautifully.
Not the coverage I expected
Julianna89 from Berea, KY
I purchased this to cover up a tattoo on my wrist. Unfortunately the coverage was very inadequate, and it barely covered the tattoo at all. It stayed on well even when wet, but was somewhat greasy on my skin. I ended up returning this because it didn't serve the purpose I purchased it for.
Not for my type of skin!
Mabel from Houston TX
I have oily acne prone skin and this makeup sunk into my pores, oxidized and turned darker. I could see the foundation clump up in certain areas of my face. I love Estée Lauder products but this did not work for my skin.
