Overall, I'd say this is an "okay" foundation. Did not hate it, but didn't love it either. Was a little moisturizing, but not quite enough for my dry skin. A little glow, but then again, not really enough. Wear was not great, about 4-5 hours, and the color turned muddy very quickly. Overall, the color change I think is more a problem with getting a good match than the formula itself. On my very pink NW20 skin, the lightest P shade was way too light, and the next shade was too dark. Very disappointed as I had heard a lot of good things about this one.

I just bought the futurist foundatin today and I LOVE LOVE LOVE It! I've been searching for so long for a foundation that would work well with my super dry skin. Every time I applied my foundation in the past I always felt like It made me look older then before I applied. I'm 32 and when I go out with no make-up people always think Im in my 20's but when I'm wearing foundation that's settles in all my little fine lines that are not normally even visible it really ages me. Not the case with the futurist this foundation goes on so smooth and instantly gives me that flawless dewy look that I've always wanted!

HG foundation. Good medium coverage (but does not feel heavy) foundation for dry skin. Great colour options - I use blonde and that works great to hide a little redness and goes with my slightly cool skin tone. Most foundations are usually just a little pink.

So this is my absolute HG winter foundation during the drier months. Or for when I want a dewy look really. It's very natural and yet covers. It's so smooth and a dream to apply. The color in 2w1 cameo is a perfect match since it's a nice light yellow when I'm much paler in the winter. I probably can use it now, but I want to save it for winter because it's so moisturizing and I think it's a waste (it's a bit pricey). Anyone with normal to rather dry skin can probably wear this anytime of the year and can appreciate the luxurious, softening moisture it provides. I am 24 and I love this. Don't sleep on Estee Lauder foundations. Hurry and try some of this, younger girls.

Love this foundation. I think its great for winter use. The only problem is it oxidizes a little, try a shade lighter or cool tone, they don't have neutral in some shades.

I've been shopping for a foundation for ageing skin for months now, I don't have loads of wrinkles, mainly just the under eye ones, and some small ones around the mouth/cheeks, not bad but they all seem to make wrinkles appear worse!
I've tried all the Revlon and Maybelline ones, no good.
I read some reviews on this one, and bought it last week, and I love it! The finish is just beautiful, I don't like matt, I was looking for a dewy/luminous one and this is perfect. I've worn it a couple of times now, and each time I do, people tell me I look great, and have a healthy glow. It's one thing if I look in the mirror and like it, the proof is in other people noticing there's something different and commenting on it!
The only concern I had was the shade, the consultant at the store suggested Fawn was the right match, in the store I was a little uncertain, it looked a tiny bit bit darker than I wanted, but once I got outside it was perfect. Maybe it took a few minutes to settle in, but it is the perfect shade for me.
I love love love it. I might try some of the other recommended ones down the track, but for now, I've found the right one for me.

Pros: Easy to blend, good coverage, makes my skin look more even, color (Porcelain) is neither yellow nor pink, dries to a matte finish, neither greasy nor drying, has a pump, reasonably priced for a department store foundation.
Cons: not particularly moisturizing even though it is supposedly for dry skin; the finish is more matte than "luminous"; SPF is not full spectrum - no UVA protection
Final Verdict: a keeper - really pleased with how well it covered redness and acne scars.

I've not written a review at MUA for longer than I can remember but this Futurist has prompted me to do so without delay. Since I've become a natural skincare convert, I've stopped purchasing synthetic skincare items but most natural or organic foundations often fail to deliver the flawless finish as I desire for the perfection of a not-so-perfect face. My age makes my skin drier and more dehydrated, and all previous high-end foundations like La Mer, Dior Prestige, etc give me dry patches as early as in the afternoon. Since I am now pro natural, I am pickier about everything I use. I look at Futurist ingredients and feel more comfortable as it does not contain parabens (some foundations do) or other known harmful substances and better off, it is non-acnegenic ...
Actually I bought Double Wear Stay-in-Place after watching a YouTube video trying to get the same flawless look, but DW is too dry for me and it really stays put not easy to remove. I went back to EL counter and was introduced to Futurist - the best advice that they have given.
I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this foundation. Feel comfortable all day long with enough, not over, moisture level to my dry but partly combination skin. It does make my skin glow with good coverage and I look revitalized and in turn younger without those disturbing dry patches. Very happy with this and I hope my search is over. The best way for me to apply is to use a brush with a generous amount (1.5 pumps) right after a moisturized face, and it melts into my skin very naturally and comfortably. Using sunscreen or primer between is no good (for me) as this extra barrier can thicken the look and make this foundation more moisturizing than I can handle. I've found that my makeup stays better this way toward the end of the day.
I've tried many many other brands including Giogio Armani, Cle de Peau, Chanel, Shiseido, Shu Uemura and even EL ReNutriv! IMO, Futurist outshines ReNutriv even under the EL umbrella and it is very affordable in terms of pricing but more remarkable by performance.

Right now this is my HG foundation!! I do have dry/somewhat sensitive skin and this makeup goes on like velvet and hydrates my skin all day long! I don't feel like I am wearing it and it looks a bit dewy at first, but never shiny/oily. I have used this foundation for 4 months and no breakouts! Great coverage and shade matches very well!! Recently I tried another foundation with good ratings and I was so dry all day and then I broke out! This is a very good foundation for medium+ coverage and dryer skin types. Probably would be ok for normal skin but probably not for oily skin.

To preface, I'm young and this is an anti-aging/for mature skin foundation... but I loved it.
-Lightweight but medium coverage
-de-emphasizes any uneven texture, skin looks so smooth
-easy to apply, i use a sonia kashuk blending brush
-pretty good color range, no overly pink or yellow undertones
-no nasty old lady smell
-good lasting power, not 24-hour or anything, but 6-8 hours for sure
-great for dry flakes!
-clogged pores, but this is probably because it contains olive oil, and my skin hates that stuff
-can get slighly shiny, but I didnt use any loose powder with it and have oily, but dehydrated skin
Someone told my my skin was glowing when I wore this, and then a minute later was like "wait...are you wearing makeup?"
That's exactly what make-up is supposed to do. If it didn't clog my pores, I would def repurchase.
anti-aging makeup looks so great on young skin btw, don't let that deter you!
