Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude

Shade in Fresco

Gone are the days of thinking Estee Lauder’s Double Wear foundation is a full on base that allows for no natural skin to peek through. The latest launch this July is their Double Wear Nude water fresh makeup and my go it’s gorgeous!

It’s a weightless liquid foundation that provides the skin with a light to medium cover. It evens the skin, dulls down pigmentation areas and smooths out the overall look of the skin. The finish it gives is the piece de résistance. It literally is like you have just washed your face and still have a sheer wash of moisture over the skin.

 As you move your face the light bounces off naturally but without a hint of artificial shimmer. The pigments used within the foundation are wrapped in a flexible polymer that moves with the skin. You can really tell that the pigments move with the skin as when the light catches it looks like waves of silk on the surface of the face.

 The skin feels hydrated and velvet soft without any clinging, or patchiness over time.

It contains an SPF30 and is also oil free. Would be suitable for a very dry through to a combination skin type. The very oily among you may find it a little too reflective.

There are a whopping 33 shades in this launch in a good mix of warm and cool tones. Unfortunately we only have the shade in Fresco (which is way too light on my skin so looks a little ashy on me).


This foundation is available now for £32.50. Because of the huge shade range I would advise visiting a counter for the consultant to check your best match.

 You can also shop online here.



  1. This looks so good! I've always wanted to try the Double Wear, but was always too scared of the almost cakey full coverage, so this sounds perfect for me! x

  3. Sam, I have about the same skin tone as you and I want to order this foundation. What shade would you pick?

  4. I went into to Boots on Saturday to get a couple of testers. Unfortunately the lady at the counter managed to drop this all down my jeans!! It's very funny!! I have an oily tzone but after reading reviews decided to try it for the summer. It definitely isn't for an oily skin. Even with a primer it just slipped of my face after about 2 hours of wear. Going back to my double wear light. Jeans still have a stain after 2 washes!!

  5. I used to love their Double Wear foundation, however, this sounds so much better because it's more natural - definitely going to try it! x


  6. The sound of water fresh is dreamy!


  7. There are three (3) kinds of EL Double Wear now?

  8. Didn't know about this new launch. I'm still eyeing the older one though! :) Great review.

  10. The staying power of this is really bad unfortunately...
