I liked this once first applied. After a few hours it settled in my lines. I really wanted it to work, so I tried a powder after application (lucidity) but still had the settling in the fine lines. I am returning it today.

This product was dissapointing.. More suitable for oily skin people than dry/very dry skin as it cakes so badly! Coverage is also so-so. Would not recommend this unless you do not mind caking foundation that gathers around dry patches!

This is my favorite winter or special occasion foundation. It covers beautifully and makes skin look great. It doesn't work as well for me in warmer weather - tends to slip off to easily, though I should mention I have combination skin which is more oily in the summer. *Update* 8-31-08: I switched to EL Double Wear, which lasts longer and the color works better for me - the lightest shade in Futurist is a bit dark. I still think this is a great foundation, particularly if you have dry skin.

What this is is a very good blendable, moisturizing, mid-weight foundation with sunscreen. I am very happy with its coverage, scent and wearability. I just wish it came with a pump.

I tried this..I didn't first it looked ok but not $$$ ok..then it melted off my face soon after. For dry skins only I'd say however estee lauder website indicated other types of skin are ok for this as well. Plus no pump..I'd be ok with that if it were any good. Estee lauder colors are horrible also and I don't have a hard skin color to match : (

I am very fussy about my foundation. I used to use EL Enlighten but since it was discontinued have tried the Futurist along with others, such as Chanel Vitalumiere, Guerlain Issima and Fleur de Teint. The Futurist a tad less ''dewy' than the Vitalumiere, but dewy enough for my 'mature' skin that is still a bit oily. My mature yet oily and spot prone skin loves Futurist Coverage is very natural for a medium coverage foundation. Gives that radiant glow but doesn't make me an oil slick or settle into my pores. Even though I stray when some glitzy new foundation comes on the market, I will keep coming back to Futurist forever. My Mom turned me onto this. She used this foundation into her late 80's and her skin looked fabulous. Thanks Mom!

I agree with the previous review...nothing all that great..looks good right when u put it on though
EDIT: I always tend to go back to this foundation. It goes on so nice when you first put it on and it gives you just a flawless/dewy look. But my face is an oil slick after so many hours with this stuff on. Maybe I need to use some powder over it?

i thought this was close to my HG but after using it for a week it def isnt! i think a week is the minimum u shud wait to see what a foundation is like. this impressed me at first but as soon as it gets warmer (the weather) this makes my face horrible! i feel the makeup is really obvious on esp on my nose- this also highlightes every pore i have! the glow i get in the first 5 mins of putting this on quickly turns to greasy shine and even after i put powder on, i was shiny again after 30 mins! horrible! it didnt look too bad in cold weather but in warm whether and sunlight no way not for me. i felt like i was wearing a mask. i just dont get on with EL foundations

Futurist is an amazing foundation. I have an oily t-zone and it's not greasy on me. I just only wear primer in the morning now. The best part is the finish. You need sooo little. In fact, I just run my fingers around the rim and it's enough. I have tons of broken capillaries and old red spots and huge pores and futurist makes them all go away. I only need concealer under my eyes now. I set this with my meteorites balls and the look is amazing. It lasts all day even through sweating. In fact, hubby and I had a lunchtime quickie the other day and I went to the bathroom and was amazed that it was all still on! Try this. The SA will give multiple samples to find your perfect shade. I'm only 32 which I guess is mature but this is my new HG!

EDIT: After changing my skincare routine, my skin got oilier! Gee thanks. But futurist is now too greasy for me and slides off after a few hours. See my review for doublewear. The "official" HG for me now.

I am 25 and was recommended this foundation by the MA. I have really dry skin and every foundation that I try makes my skin really flakey. Even with this foundation, you could still see the flakes. So I stopped using this foundation for a while, found a good moisturiser that was really hydrating on my skin and gave this another go. I just applied it and I like it. It makes my skin really nice and dewy and even conceals the redness on my cheeeks. The packaging is nice.
