Estée Lauder launched Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup in 1997 and to this day it remains one of the most used and praised foundations on the beauty market.

Cruelty Free UK selected nine cruelty free alternatives to Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup for every budget. These nine foundations are cruelty free and are made by ethical, cruelty free brands.
