Foundations are just getting better and better – they not only give hope for blemished skin to look smooth and flawless, they now come with skincare properties that promise to leave our skin feeling hydrated and fresh even AFTER we take it off.
While looking super elegant and sexy at the same time.
My Thoughts On What Makes A Good Foundation
- On a good skin day -> Enhances my skin, not mask it
- On a bad skin day -> Conceals my skin imperfections and not aggravate the sensitivity
- Have enough shades to match different skin tones and undertones
- Easy to apply and blend
- Does not clog my pores
Estee Lauder Futurist Aqua Brilliance Moisture Infused Liquid Makeup SPF15/PA++ fulfills all my requirements and then some. I am in LOVE.
I first got to try it at the Estee Lauder photoshoot.
It also comes with SPF15 and is super-charged with the ingenious Revival Plant Extract which has the ability to preserve itself from dryness. Say what?
This extract is derived from the hardiest wild flowering plant in the Balkans, known as the ‘Resurrection Plant’. It survives in the harshest weather conditions by being able to completely dry out and then bounce back once water is introduced.
What an interesting plant, isn’t it! Woah, what would I give to possess such dexterity for survival and self-motivation! It leaves the skin feeling soft and hydrated even AFTER removing it.
The formula also contains a patented Sustainable Moisture Complex composed of hyaluronic acid and ceramide spheres to lock in the moisture even after makeup is removed.
Hydrated skin is hard to come by, especially in our erratic weather, so this moisture-infused foundation is definitely going to deliver the extra dewiness that Asian skin needs.
