Double Wear Light Stay-in-Place Makeup:
– Sheer-to-medium coverage
– Natural finish
– SPF10 protection
– Up to 15-hour’s wear

Long-wear makeup is now lightweight makeup. Fresh, natural, comfortable. Goes on sheer, leaves skin free to breathe all day. A liquid foundation that has been formulated to glide on fast, comfortably and evenly for a naturally-sheer, flawless finish that lasts all day – up to 15 hours without fading or transferring – no matter how active the wearer or humid the weather.

Controls oil, resists smudging and won’t “melt” off through heat and humidity. For a look that stays vibrant and fresh whether it’s a workday, a workout or a weekend. It’s makeup that keeps up. Double Wear Light is a “thinking” foundation. It adjusts to each individual’s skin type, keeping moisture levels balanced while controlling excess oil and shine. With additional SPF10 and antioxidant vitamins A, C and E, Double Wear Light also helps provide powerful protection against UV damage and other environmental assaults.

Oil-free. Photo-friendly. Fragrance-free. Non-acnegenic. Dermatologist-tested.

I had been wearing this foundation daily lately, it really gives my skin a velvety veil, helps controlling sebum secretion, covering  pores, blurring lines & stays for at least 12 hours without creasing or changing hue. The finish is rather sheer to medium & “camera friendly”. This has surpassed the original double wear.

EL’s double wear mascara is the best long wearing, smudge resistant mascara that i had came across. It’s easy to apply, with minimal clumping; gives decent hue to lashes &  remains transfer-proof for at least 12 hours.

I love it’s zero smudge formula that goes on smoothly  & wouldn’t leave my lashes brittle by the end of the day. It provides enough definition to my lashes  ( although it’s not the best lengthening/thickening/curling mascara).


Upon application, it stays put for more than 14 hours. I had tried wearing this for both day & night shifts. It withstands my greasy lids & power  nap; yet is easily removable with warmth water & cleanser.

According to EL’s press, double wear is engineered with breakthrough Smudge-Shield™ Technology to resist high temperatures and high humidity, without smudging, flaking or wearing away. The Lash-Xtender™ Brush elongates, separates and surrounds each lash in glossy, intensified color.
