Rated 4.2 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review The best. Period.
I have been on a mission to find the best foundation. While I probably will continue to try new ones, this is the absolute best one I've found. It is beautiful. The finish is a flattering satin, not too matte and not too dewy. It feels great on the skin, has tons of happy skin ingredients. I ask a lot of my foundation, and this one stands up to the task!
Most Helpful Critical Review Beautiful finish and color - does not last w/o EL primer
I have light/medium neutral skin that has some signs of aging. I found this product went on very well when applied with Estee Lauder products during the EL event at Ulta. I am skilled at putting on my makeup and could not duplicate the application with other primers, which I was told should be no problem. I had issues with the product blending out too much with the Clarisonic brush attachment and lifting off with a blending sponge when I tried to build it up (using two different primers). The product went on flawlessly and stayed on overnight with the EL primer and my skin was comfortable with no settling in lines. I currently use Becca products and was looking for a new foundation with a better color match. The product is lovely, but I do not want to be tied down to one primer since some cause breakouts. I need a foundation that works well with multiple primers. :(. When I built the product up to full coverage it got very heavy and cakey (with alternate primers). For me personally, this worked best with the EL primer, and it may very well work with other primers on other skin types, this was my personal experience. I loved the finish and color match, as well as the feel on my skin. It was perfect and did not settle into any fine lines. Give it a go and see how it works in your routine with the products you use.

All of the above pros.

Is this being discontinued?! Please no! It's the perfect natural lookl, but full coverage for my maturing skin. I don't even know now what I would be able to replace it with. ☹

Great moisturizing coverage
Jesy from Florida
So smooth and light feeling with perfect coverage. I love the way my face look with it. The best decision ever made for this product.
Absolutely Buildable & Long-lasting
UltaChic73 from Nevada
This is an awesome product. Been using it for 3 years, going on 4. Only tip I can give is that this product still requires a primer and it's better to use a beauty blender than a foundation brush to even out the foundation in order to achieve a smoother texture following a light powder dusting by Double-Wear to minimize transferring and oiliness. Overall, it blurs out my wrinkles and is a non-drying formula. Highly recommended!

I love the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup and wanted something a bit lighter for running errands on the weekends, but this was disappointing. The formula doesn't dry down nicely and is very patchy and hard to build. My t-zone was blotchy by then end of the day as the product separated, and touching up with powder only made it worse. My biggest complaint though is how heavily perfumed this product is, I don't normally mind scents in my beauty products, but this is too much!
I would buy this again.

Love my new Foundation I had dry areas around my nose and she told me about this new one that is infused with serum to help moisturize my skin what a huge difference
Heidi from Westminster, Colorado
Great finish, long lasting. Make sure you get the right color because it will oxidize and change a bit. Wearing a primer alleviates this problem. It seems a bit light but has full coverage and layers well.
S. Powers from Texas
This foundation is wonderful I mix it with Double Wear and it makes a beautiful finish. I have combo skin and it looks good all day.
Caked and dried out skin
Sasu from San Diego Ca
I was excited to try something for aging. I have somewhat dry skin and with some foundations it causes the tiny wrinkles around my eyes to show more. After reading the description I thought this foundation would definitely help me. But it was the opposite. It's very heavy make up but without the coverage that comes with full coverage/heavy foundation. It caked up almost immediately. It was also very drying and not radiant at all. I tried with all my pricy/nice primers and it was the same for all. Luckily I was able to return.
It's alright kinda oily doesn't last all day like it should.

An employee helped me pick a shade and I am sorry I did not get his name. It is the best color match I have ever had. He works at the Brokaw store.

Gretchen from Indiana
I love this foundation. This is my first higher end foundation and I am 45 years old. I decided to treat myself and I'm glad I did. I've always gone for the cheaper drug store makeup, which I love, but I'm getting older and need to cover up more. This is easy to blend and I love the finish!
Amazing gorgeous foundation!
Lisa from ILLINOIS

In love with this!
Courtney from Nashville, TN
Best foundation ever. Gave my skin this flawless, airbrushed look that I've never had before. It got better the longer I used it and actually improved my skin itself. The pump is fantastic and this bottle lasted me about twice as long as the same size bottle of my tarte foundation .
not my color
