*Neither brand is cruelty-free. Beauty Guru, Kayla, says: Both are 1 oz. EL is $42 & Maybelline is $7.99. Neither product is heavily fragranced. I love both of these formulas. Both are not thick nor do they feel cakey once on the skin. They are lightweight, have buildable coverage & blend out well. Both dry down matte & through a 12 hour day both keep the oil at bay. Even though both formulas are matte, I felt as though Maybelline dried down with a bit more of a natural finish than EL does. EL does tend to settle into my pores & smile lines. Both brands have a vast shade range, so there's something for everyone. Maybelline will cling to dry patches so in the winter, I like to switch to the Dewy version of this or mix the two. Neither comes with a pump. You can buy a separate one for EL for $10. I think that is a little steep for an expensive foundation already, but at least you have the option. Maybelline you do not. If you are not looking to shell out that much money for a foundation, try Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless. I think it’s a pretty solid dupe for Estee Lauder Double Wear. Buy Our Pick
*Neither brand is cruelty-free. Makeup Maven Opinion: Both are 1 oz. L'Oreal is $14.99 & EL is $42. L'Oreal is highly fragranced. I didn't mind the smell but if you do not like perfume type smelling foundations I would skip this. EL has a very clean type of scent. It's quite watery in consistency. I was surprised when I put it on my sponge. I wore L'Oreal on one side of my face & EL on the other side. Both blended very easily. Both felt light and breathable & are buildable in coverage. After a few hours of wear, I noticed that L'Oreal settled into my smile lines & EL settled into the pores on my nose. Both looked smooth on the skin but EL has an airbrushed look to it. I do NOT like that EL does NOT come with a pump. You can buy a pump separately for $10. For the price you pay you shouldn't have to pay for a pump it should already come with one. So keep that in mind if you're going to purchase EL. Neither of them clung to the dry patches on my skin. Buy Estee Lauder or Buy L’Oreal
*According to Cruelty-Free Kitty, neither Revlon or Estee Lauder is cruelty-free. Makeup Maven, Kayla, found Estee Lauder for $42 for 1 oz and Revlon for around $13 for 1 oz. Kayla says: I have combo dry skin with an oily t-zone. I work in humid conditions sometimes and usually by the end of the day my t-zone is quite oily. My nose is one of the first places my foundation rubs off. I have to prep my skin quite a bit to get any foundation to last on those areas throughout the day. Some more than others. Estee Lauder is one of my go-to favorite foundations. It’s an extremely light feeling foundation with very buildable coverage. It has a natural matte finish that is just beautiful. By the end of the day usually, Estee Lauder shows my pores on my nose like something crazy. But after about 12 hours that’s to be expected. Both products don’t have much of a fragrance. It’s a buildable coverage and does cover most of my blemishes including my darker areas on my face from acne scars. Revlon is much thinner in consistency compared to Estee Lauder. The coverage isn’t as good or as buildable as Estee Lauder. Revlon covered bumps but didn’t cover much redness or dark areas on my face. I would have to color correct before using. Revlon lasted through a humid day with little oil coming through on my t-zone by the end of the day which is my skin’s MO. Estee Lauder’s shade range is much wider than Revlon. Revlon has SPF while Estee Lauder does not. Both products are marketed for 24-hour wear foundations. While I don't think either would last 24 hours they both last at least 12. Revlon has a pump while Estee Lauder doesn’t have one. You have to purchase one separately for $10. For the price you pay for the foundation I don’t think you should have to buy a pump on top of it. I think Revlon is a decent foundation for the price however the fact that it couldn’t cover some problem areas as well as EL can - my go to is still Estee Lauder.
