Afternoon ladies..Im in the market for a new foundation and was wondering if there would be a clear leader amongst you for a recommendation? I have tried minerals of various types..my skin, although 'mature' can be oily sometimes and cheaper liquid foundations dont last long at all, hence the 'upgrade'!
My niece raves about the benefit one, but was wondering if its only for the youngsters..lol
Any goods or bads would be appreciated.. many thanks x

I love double wear, best foundation I've ever tried! It can make your skin feel dry but if you have good skin prep you should be ok with it. Nothing else I've tried has the staying power of double wear. Im in my 40s and have lost some of my youthful glow lol, so i use benefit high beam too. Just gives skin a nice dewy look. Not tried benefit foundations, sorry.

I have literally just got back from having a demo of Double Wear Camouflage and bought some. It's A-Mazing! I have been trying to find a foundation that will cover my acne scars and redness and not look like I am caked in make up. After starting a thread on here about whether to look at Bare Minerals or similar, someone (well a few people) have been going on about double wear and how great it was. And they are right! :)

I've just got back and put it on and I love it, my skin feels silky smooth, everything is hidden and my skin looks as flawless as it can given the state of it :lol: A very happy bunny :)

I've never heard any rave reviews on Benefit foundations. I don't even know the names of them or anything.

Estee Lauder Double Wear is definitely one of the market leaders. It's worth a try to see if it suits you. It's a pain for making you look pale in photos though. And their shade selection isn't great - I'd love to be able to wear it but my nearest shades are either far too light or far too dark.

MAC can be hit and miss, some people claim to have bad breakouts with MAC, and some of their shades can be a bit on the orangey side. BUT, I love Studio Fix Fluid, it's my all-time favourite foundation (but I'm always trying new ones).

It's because of threads like this that I'm a DW convert. I've tried just about everything on the market and my face always looked like an oily, patchy mess by lunch time. With Double Wear, my make up looks great all day. :)

I just bought their matte primer and eyeshadow primer, too. FAB products!

I bought double wear 2 weeks ago and it's the best foundation I've used. I have breakouts and scars on my chin and it covers them perfectly and stays on all day. Would not use anything else now.x

Snap!!! I was worried about buying this today because it's yet another one that's so pricey but it is worth every penny and at last I have found a foundation that's a keeper!! Hooray! :)

I have tried both of them - double wear is good. Have a look at Chanel pro lumiere it is amazing!! The best thing to do would be to go to a department store and try samples of them all to see which one you prefer.

Double wear is AMAZING..... But Lancombes new one is pretty good too.... It's marketed to rival double wear I think....:biggrin:

I'm a bit of a snob when it comes to make up but Bourjois healthy mix serum foundation is amaze!

I read about it in a mag & thought let's give it a go!

I was a bit dubious at first but after my 3rd bottle I'm hooked, has won awards & is around £9!
