Estée Lauder: Futurist SkinTint Serum - Review

Estee Lauder's foundations have never let me down. I've experimented with several of them, tailoring my choice to the latest makeup trends, and they consistently land in my top 3, if not snagging the coveted title of my all-time favorite.

With tinted serums gaining popularity, it was no surprise when Estée Lauder hopped on the trend wagon. The moment I laid eyes on the new Futurist SkinTint Serum Foundation, I knew my next review had to shine a spotlight on this beauty.

This tinted serum arrives in a sleek glass bottle, generously housing 30ml of the magic potion. The added touch of a glass pipette applicator oozes sophistication, and with a whopping 29 shades to choose from, it's a guarantee that everyone will find their perfect match.

Initially, I thought this might be just another foundation masquerading as a skin tint, but my skepticism was swiftly proven wrong. The finish didn't scream natural initially, thanks to its impressive pigmentation. A few drops are all you need to cover your entire face — though I may have used a tad more initially, assuming the runny texture would demand it. My bad.

Turns out, the serum is delightfully buildable. Apply a small amount, and voila! You've got a fresh, healthy-looking canvas that gives the illusion of makeup-free perfection. Feeling a bit more glam? Amp up the application, and suddenly, it's like you've donned a medium-coverage foundation. I use either brush or my fingers to apply this serum, I feel like the sponge absorbs and wastes too much of the product.

Unlike its infamous sibling, the Double Wear foundation, this serum doesn't dry out my skin. It's like a breath of fresh air for your face — light, breathable, and quick to absorb. The best part? It sticks around for the whole day. After a solid 8-9 hours, a touch-up might be in order, just to keep things flawless.

In summary, this serum gets a big thumbs up from me, just as I expected from Estée Lauder, one of my go-to high-end makeup brands. Yes, it might be a tad pricier, but with Black Friday just around the corner, I'm keeping my eyes peeled for some irresistible deals to snag this serum at a steal.
