I got a sample of this foundation since I wasn't able to get a sample of the Country Mist foundation. I got a sample in the shade Bisque. This foundation has a matte finish and is not thick, but covers well. I prefer the Futurist foundation since it has more of a satin finish. I will not purchase.

This goes on smooth and silky. The first time, I had EL's BB creme underneath it. The second time, I had Paula'sChoice Resist Moisturizer with sunscreen under it. Extremely easy to blend. It seemed a little shiny; however, the PC product is shiny, so I don't know which was most responsible. It looks fresh. My color was Ivory Beige, 2N1, for the NW20 skin. It's flattering.

I'm so truly dissapointed in this foundation. I have been on the hunt for a full covering foundation for dry skin for a while now. After hearing great things about futurist I wanted to give that one a go. But since my country only sell 5 shades of futurist and online there isnt any possible website you can order a sample or fullsize of futurist which ships internationally, I decided to switch to resilience lift. Since I heard it was practically the same thing (for futurist sake, I hope not). Anyways in the estee lauder foundation shades im always in the '2' range and yellow undertones so I ordered a sample of 2W Dusk. Well first of all the colour is a bit weird. It has a yellow undertone but at the same time looks a bit orange after you applied it. The foundation itself has a bit of a mouse texture I find. Its very sticky and difficult to blend. Also I didnt really like the smell. But I could overlook all those things, if it would at least work with my dy flaky spots on my skin. But oh boy, was I wrong. I never had a foundation which made my dry spots stand out like this. Looked like I rubbed my skin with sandpaper. The good things of this foundation is that it is med/full coverage and it lasts pretty well. But for that price estee lauder should be embarresed xD

This foundation is great on my super dry skin. It blends easily and doesn't make me feel like I'm covered in product. A light hand is needed when applying this because apply too much and you will definitely see it on the skin. You need very little to achieve medium coverage. It also runs slightly pink. The pump on it works well and is easily controlled. Overall a great foundation.

I love this foundation. The coverage is medium to full, and doesn't settle in my fine lines or cling to my dry patches. It blends nicely & wears wonderfully. I've been using it for a few years now & haven't found anything better.

the product is actually quite good. it blends in well with the skin, and is easy to apply with brush or even the hands. the only downside to this foundation and many other estee lauder foundation, is the colours that are avaliable. the product just didnt have the right amount of yellowyness that was suited to my skin. furthermore i find that this product oxidises half an hour or so after applying it,to a slightly darker colour.. the packaging was okayish. not really that appealing, sort of grannyish old fashioned., but this could be because it probably more aimed at more maturer women. due to it expensive price i would be purchasing this one again

if you are a fan of chanels vita lumiere but you would like a bit more coverage, a bit more staying power and more shades to choose from then this is a great foundation for you! I really like most Estee Lauders foundations and this is no exception . Has a really liquidy, silky texture that spreads on the skin effortlessly.Provides light to medium buildable coverage.leaves a dewy finish on the skin, stays reasonably long on the skin and gives a very luminous moisturizing effect on the skin. gives a nice sheen and dimension to dry skins without that overly oily or wet like skin effect. I dont find that firms my skin as they claim but i dont use this foundation to firm my skin. If you are someone with oily skin dont even think to try this foundation the formulation would be quite greasy for you. Comes in a nice glass packaging with a pump. I m sure mature skins would love this ! chanels vita lumiere is good for people with just dry skin this one is better for dry mature skin because it doesnt move too much so it wont set on fine lines and wrinkles that much.

Although this gives good coverage, I find it very sticky and not smooth, and it made my face break out after.

Really disappointed about this foundation, in fact it is one of he worst I have ever tried. My skin was in good condition before use and I am now covered in spots. Besides, this foundation seems to glide off my skin very quickly and the saleswoman promised me it was long-lasting. All in all, a very disappointing experience. The search for my HG foundation continues...

I'm a loyal Double Wear fan, but sadly it's too dry to use on my already dry skin, so was looking for a new EL foundation. I read raving reviews about Futurist here on MakeupAlley so went to my local Estee Lauder counter and asked for a sample of Futurist. The sales woman strictly advised me against Futurist for one simple reason - it's about to be discontinued, and she advised me to try Resilience Lift Extreme instead, as (apparently) it's pretty much the same thing. (it's not actually, but..whatever). So, I got a sample of RLE and went home to try it. I've now been using it for a week and am not very impressed. The coverage is medium, and the foundation slides off throughout the day. Not like Double Wear at all. It's also not *that* moisturising if you have dry skin like me.
I'm kind of gutted that I didn't insist on getting a sample of Futurist, but guess if they are discontinuing it, it might be pointless.
It's not a bad foundation; it goes on & blends easily, feels light on your skin, gives decent coverage and smells nice BUT I wouldn't spend my hard earned cash on this. It's expensive for such average product.

I wear this lovely foundation in the winter, because it has the extra moisturing agents that I need for my dry,aging skin in the winter. It just amazes me how Estte Lauder chemist are so brilliant that they can make their foundations so perfect that I wear this for winter and double wear light doing summer. This foundation has the perfect yellow tone, glides on and blends perfect into my skin. The amazing thing about this product is that it is for older, aging skinned women and it photo ready foundation. This is the foundation I wear no matter the season when know I'm taking pictures. I love the creamy, dewy look it gives me in the winter. You can apply this light,medium or full coverage and a little goes along way because of the extra moisture in this baby. This is my favorite, my only foundation in the winter. Estte Lauder nobody have you faded on the foundations....Brilliant

If this were drugstore I would have given it a 3 because it's very averadge and nothing special but because it's Estee Lauder and it costs 35 dollars a bottle I gave it a 2, it should have been better quality for the price. Now I can't really say if this is lifting/firming because I got this from a family friend who is 55 and although she probably bought it for that reason she cast it off to me and I'm 16. What I can say is that it can't be all that amazing in firming because I noticed nothing after using it for a year. (Heck it was free and estee lauder I used it anyway) My main problem with this was that it was rather orange on my skin. Obviously if I had purchased it myself with help from an estee lauder rep. at a counter they would have matched me with a more exact shade so thats my own fault. I didn't notice a problem with it not spreading, I used my clinique foundation brush though. Anyway I like my Clinique superbalanced better it makes my skin look pretty this just covered stuff up. Oh and the bottle is really pretty!

OK, so I need a new foundation as the color of the old one I have had for ages doesn't suit me any longer.
So, I went to Boots and thought I'd try Futurist on one cheek and Resilience on another to see how they go. I now know why they call it Resilience! It resists from being spread!.
Seriously, while Futurist glided on and left a lovely, dewy sheen while still evening out my skintone, Resilience didn't want to budge. It had the texture of an oil based paint. You know when you paint something at home and your hands become all greasy and yucky from the paint and seemingly imposible to wash off....that's how this foundation felt.
It also maximized the size of every pore on my cheeks and this is difficult to do, as I really don't have any noticeable pores on my cheeks (my nose is another matter altogether). Needless to say, I dropped it like a hot potato. However, I was really surprised that EL has put out such a lemon of a foundation (and the SA really tried to push it on me). Well, when I was younger, I would have probably gone for it against my better judgement, but you live and learn. I now don't trust anyone but my eyes, too many bad experiences from "well trained" SAs in the past...I sometimes wonder who trains them, Stevie Wonder?
So, for whoever is interested in this foundation, buyer beware - do try before you buy.

The shade I selected (Beech) worked well for me; however, I could not get this foundation to blend into my skin. It kept pilling on my skin. The more I tried to blend it, the more my skin pilled up. I had all these tiny skin flakes all over my face. I ended up having to wipe my face completely clean and go without the foundation. I have tried three consecutive days to apply this stuff in various different ways and could not get it to lay smoothly on my skin, so I returned it to the store. Of course, the sales rep. tried to tell me it was my moisturizer, the brush I was using, my application method, etc... (ah, I don't think so!)

I tried to like this foundation...I put it on with a brush, and then tried with my fingers...ugh...it left pill type things on my face. The color was nice but the way it just lays on your skin was awful I will be returning it.

I did not like this product, it looked too obvious and thick when on my skin, and the Estee Lauder salesperson did a fairly poor job matching me, when I got home I saw it was clearly too orange (I am willing to blame horrible department store lighting for this, but still, it sucks). It kind of just made me FEEL very aware that I was wearing foundation, which I don't like. I ended up exchanging it for their "light" doublewear foundation which has less coverage, but I like much better.

I'm glad I waited to review this product. At first I was okay with it as far as coverage & wear goes, but the color could sometimes be a little off by the end of the day. Went on looking normal, but after 8 hours could occasionally be problematic. So based on that experience, I would have been with the reviewer below who said her feelings depended on the day.
Since my issues were mostly with color, I went back and got the next lighter shade. That was a good move. I now have zero issues. I used it for the first time yesterday and at the end of the day, looked in the mirror and was pleased with how it held up (or more accurately, failed to break down). I think if my skin was darker, the original shade they gave me might have made me happy.
FYI my skin is oily in the t-zone, and that does end up shiny at the end of the day. But this is the case no matter WHAT for me. So, I just blot and dust on some powder on my nose and forehead at lunch.

I stopped using my beloved Re-Nutriv to try this foundation. I don't like it. These foundations with titanium dioxide are difficult to apply and seem to end up with an awful texture. This sits on my face and doesn't cover much of anything yet is difficult to remove because of the - again! - titanium dioxide. The moral to my story is find a good sunscreen and then look around for a nicely-textured foundation.

My review for this is nearly a dupe of my review for Lucidity... Purchased this foundation after being assured it would impart a "dewy and fresh" look. Even at 50 with fine lines, my skin is quite good, and achieving this goal of "dewy and fresh" should be a relatively simple thing for the right foundation.
This one just wasn't it for me. Again, it's pretty, wears well, isn't heavily scented, and the pump is wonderful.
Given the reviews, this is working beautifully for some, so I can't say it's awful... I can say it didn't give me the resulting finish I wanted, and so off to swap it goes...
Another chunk of money spent in a frustrating search!

I can't believe anyone likes this. Yuck! This stuff pills and rolls on your skin even the EL rep told me this before I had a chance to explain it to her. The lightest shade was way too gold for me and it had a strange mineral type of shine.
