The weightless foundation that will be your new everyday go-to

Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup Reviews

Lightweight coverage that'll leave you looking natural and radiant

Beauty Crew Contributing Editor / February 20 2018

The product

For many of us, we want our foundation to deliver enough coverage to even out our skin tone without feeling too heavy. Something lightweight to keep skin looking naturally fresh,  and hydrating so our skin doesn't suffer underneath. Estée Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup SPF25 not only offers long-lasting light-to-medium coverage (in over 20 shades!) that won't streak or cake, but it also has a weightless texture and an oil-free, hyaluronic-enriched formula to boost moisture. An added bonus: antioxidants in the foundation also help defend the complexion against environmental damage from UV rays and pollution. Basically it goes above and beyond delivering a flawless finish.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Estée Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup SPF25 to a panel of women aged between and 18 and 35 who are looking for a long-lasting foundation with a light-to-medium coverage that delivers a natural, radiant and even-toned finish.

The lowdown

Here's what the Review Crew® loved about Estée Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup SPF25:

How lightweight it felt: Singing this foundation’s praise for giving good coverage while still feeling lightweight on the skin, reviewers liked the thinner formula and how weightless it felt on their complexion.

The fresh finish it gave skin: Living up to its promise of naturally radiant-looking skin, Review Crew® members liked the fresh, satin finish they got from this foundation.

How it was great for everyday wear: Most days of the week, you just want a foundation that evens everything out and gives your skin a bit of a pep-up. For many of our reviewers, this is what they loved so much about this foundation. They thought it was the ideal formula for everyday wear.

Good to know: While many reviewers found their perfect colour match just by choosing a shade from the swatches on Estée Lauder’s website, others ended up with the wrong shade for their skin tone and recommended going in-store to be properly colour matched before purchasing.

The verdict

"Absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this foundation! The colour I have (1C0 Shell) is a perfect match for my skin tone. I don't wear much makeup daily, so this was light enough for me to feel comfortable and didn't end up with excess oil around my T-zone and was so smooth to apply."

"I love this foundation so much! It is honestly the best foundation so far that I have tried. I am normally a tinted moisturiser/BB/CC cream kind of girl as I hate that thick heavy cakey feeling of a full coverage foundation, especially if I have to wear it on an almost-daily basis and I like the look of skin still peeping through…This foundation ticked all the boxes for me: lightweight, flawless yet natural looking, skin looking like skin while providing good coverage - I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who is into this kind of look!"

"Love this foundation! I usually look for a foundation that is light and dewy in consistency. This usually means that I need to reapply during the day/night. The best thing about this foundation from Estée Lauder is it has a light to medium coverage, feels light on my skin, and stays on much longer than most foundations I have used in the past. I also have very fair skin, so I need SPF in my makeup products - this foundation ticks the box as it is SPF25."
