I rarely write make up reviews, but wanted to give a special recommendation for this one. I have the color" Golden Petal 07 and absolutely love it! I'm 45 but with good skin. I live in dry Colorado climate and find that this foundation is just the right amount of coverage and moisturizing! I highly recommend getting the Estee Lauder Foundation Brush - it's probably pricey, but so is the foundation and it will help you use less of the foundation and more even coverage. Sometimes if I want more sheer coverage, but still evenly applied, I wet the brush a little first under the faucet and then put a drip of foundation on it, then apply to my face. While this color is a little darker than my actual skin tone, it's sheer enough that it still looks great and adds a little color - I also brush a little on my neck as well (sometimes dilute it a little for the neck area so it's sheer but keeps the skin color consistent with my face.) I find that some foundations actually accent the lines in my face and look cakey, such as with Arbonne's foundation. But this one always looks natural! Love it! Worth the price!

Wow, I really like this foundation! I thought I would because I read a review that said it had olive oil in it, and olive oil-based cleansers are the only things that don't break me out. The coverage is much less heavy than the Double Wear, but I think that's a good thing. There's also a much more limited selection of shades. One big plus: my husband normally cannot detect any difference in makeup on me, which I find frustrating, but he says my skin "looks glowy" when I wear this!

All and all, the coverage is light. (insert sad face)
CONS: If you don't apply a primer before hand, it will start fading away probably 4-5 hours after applying.
it's a bit TOO dewy sometimes, so you'd need to use a setting powder.(something I find annoying to have to do).
definitely NOT the foundation to wear in hot weather or environments, it will melt away.
Can feel heavy on the face, and clings to dry patches, also crease marks on eyelids.
PROS: It gives a nice healthy glow that I love! Just wish it lasted longer man!!

Mixed feelings, but overall good. I got this after watching lots of youtube videos and wanted to try it out.
Things I loved - even though it didn't cover for toffee, it gave an amazing beautiful "taken care of" skin. I was often complimented and you cannot see it on.
Things I didn't - never had a foundation run out in 5 weeks time, ever. I had to use at least 2-3 pumps of it. In the end of the day it would definitely accentruate any dry patches you didn't know about, don't use it around the eyes, made my skin exhausted for some reason.
Otherwise it's a beautiful product, will probably buy it again sometime soon.

I went to Macy's in search of this foundation after reading the great reviews. Then I was told they didn't have any testers because it is being discontinued and what they had in stock is all they would be getting. The sales lady said it was being phased out by the Resilience Lift. I got the blonde shade without even testing it and figured I could return it if it didn't work out. It looked darker in the bottle than it did on my skin. The coverage is medium but definitely buildable and has a very pretty dewy finish. It stays on well too. I would repurchase if they weren't discontinuing it.

I am so glad that I did not listen to the Estee Lauder’s representative here in local Macy’s. I read some raving reviews about Futurist and wanted to try it. I have used Double wear, Re-Nutriv Ultimate Radiance Makeup, Resilience Compact makeup (BTW still have these left in my makeup kit..)
A little about my skin—I do have some acne scaring going on and get hormonal acne on my chin. I also get acne when I am stressed out but over all I take good care of my skin. I have a normal skin which has been appearing to be bit dry for couple of months especially after wearing makeup. EL representative talked me into how Resilience would be a good choice and not Futurist and when I told her that I am using Resilience and am very happy with the results and just want to experience Futurist she helped me find the right color (Bare Beige) in Futurist and said they didn’t have sample of one !!?..ok so I came home and researched a little bit more about the product and finally bought Futurist. I must say this is the best foundation I have every used, goes on smooth and coverage is flawless. I wear daywear BB cream underneath and apply this foundation using a foundation brush, I think brush gives a good coverage as compared to fingers. I don’t feel the need to set it with powder. As far as acne goes I have not noticed any zits or breakout from this product. Based on good ingredients present in this product I think it’s calming and balancing. My skin feels supple and conditioned. I don’t think there is any issue with oily aspect. There is some similarity between Re-Nutriv Randiance and Futurist in terms of the way they feel on skin except of price, all and all I am happy with my purchase.

So I heard from a lady at the Estee Lauder counter that this product is currently being phased out and I hope that isn't true at all because I've found my HG foundation!
I have combination skin (dry with an oily t-zone) and this foundation glides onto my skin and doesn't get stuck on any dry patches or sink into pores. Admittedly, it was difficult convincing the two different SAs at Estee Lauder that I wanted THIS and not Double Wear, but after finally getting color matched (and then subsequently returning to get 2W1 instead of 2C1), I can definitely say that this is the best foundation I've ever used!
It has a semi-matte finish and it stays true to color the whole day! I have the most sensitive skin and I haven't broken out from it! It's well worth the money and I'll truly be heartbroken if it's ever discontinued!

The futurist is a dewy finish on my oily skin but i can still make it work great. It is very easy to blend, a little goes a long way definitely. This morning i woke up with a very dark red spot on my forehead and an hour after using this with my mouisturizer and primer (which i thik doesnt help with my sensitive skin) and the red is all gone. Good skincare not as good skincare as the re-nutriv but still better than anyother skincare makeup i used.

I wish I could give this foundation 10 stars. It has to be my favorite foundation and I have tried lots of expensive foundations! This foundation is what I wanted all my other foundations to be. This foundation deserves a lot more attention than it gets!
First off let me start by saying that I have oily skin. I get dry patches sometimes thanks to acne products but throughout the day my skin gets oily and most foundations fade away or get patchy on my oily skin.Not this baby :)
Also, I am young so I don't need anti aging makeup but this stuff is too amazing to resist.
FUTURIST: This is a medium coverage foundation though I can see it being buildable if you want more coverage. It is hydrating and has a luminous/dewy finish. It is great for any skin type in my opinion. Anyone who wants a dewy finish foundation should try this. I have oily skin but I personally love a dewy finish. For dry skin types this will be amazing to moisturize. Oily girls - I dont find that it makes me more oily but do keep in mind it has a dewy finish!
The foundation feels so smooth on your skin and looks practically invisible. It doesn't cake up which I love. I moisturise and apply a good primer (Smashbox) and it lasts me 8 hours or more. After 8 hours with my primer, it looks as good as when I applied it even on my oily skin. LOVE THAT :)
It looks so natural and pretty/luminous. Its incredible! It manages to cover up my redness and most of my acne. With one pump, it didnt cover my two huge zits I currently have so I went over that with concealer but for all my other blemishes it covered them up!
I am a NC 25-30 (more on the 30 side) and I got this in 2 shades. 2W1 Cameo is close to my skin tone but I find it too orange. (The color gets less orange as the day goes on) I mix Cameo with 1W1 Beech. Beech on its own is way too light but mixed with Cameo gives the perfect yellow toned shade. Some people said it oxidized.. as long as you wear a primer you wont have that problem.
Overall, I highly recommend Futurist, my new fav foundation :) Ask for a sample at the EL counter because they give 10 day samples and you can see if you like it. Great medium coverage, dewy, natural looking, lasting foundation. HG.
NOTE: This is not oil free. It contains olive oil. However, I have very acne prond skin and it didnt break me out! Just take your makeup off properly and you should be ok. In fact it helped to balance out my skin in the dry areas. This foundation is like skincare because of the nourishing ingredients!

I like the look and feel of Futurist foundation, especially if I apply it right after moisturizing. But that Yes is conditional... I would buy again in a heartbeat if Estee added an even lighter color than IC. The color I bought is fine in the summer but I need it in winter when my skin is dryest... and, unfortunately, pale.
