Hey guys! Today we’re doing a foundation wear test on the new Fenty Beauty Eaze Drop Blurring Skin Tint. I love Fenty foundations. I have both the Pro Filt’r soft matte and hydrating foundations, both of which are some of my favourite foundations. The only foundation I haven’t tried from Fenty is its powder foundation, which I would be interested in trying in the future as well.
But when I saw Fenty was coming out with a skin tint I knew I had it get it. I’ve been into wearing foundations with lighter coverage on the day-to-day. Since I don’t leave my house much (yay Ontario lockdowns 🙃), it’s been nice to wear something with less coverage. I love the other Fenty foundations so I had high hopes for this one.
The Eaze Drop Blurring Skin Tint (which I will refer to just Skin Tint since the name is so long) is a lightweight skin tint with buildable light-to-medium coverage. That means that depending on how much and how you apply the skin tint it will increase the coverage. The Skin Tint is supposed to help blur and smooth the skin. It has a natural coverage, with many people describing the finish as similar to skin.
My first impression was that the bottle was smaller than I expected, but it does have the same amount of product as the other foundations. The packaging is a squeezy tube, which is my favourite packaging. When I use a light coverage foundation I’m usually trying to just quickly do my makeup. So I like to squeeze the foundation right onto my face.
I’m not sure if this is because it’s a good shade match or the formula but it does blend right into the skin. It’s quite seamless and looks nice. It does a good job of evening my skin tone and covering some of my redness and scarring. I’ll be honest guys, I got some series redness on my face. My cheeks are always red and I also have some breakouts as well as some major acne scars. No light coverage foundation is going to get rid of it completely. Sometimes not even full coverage foundations can. But it did make a noticeable difference. I will note that using a foundation brush is my preferred method over using a sponge. It sinks into the skin better and increases the coverage.
I still applied a full face of makeup because I’m testing other products. So I added concealer and powder as well. The final product is a face that looks smooth but you can still see minor imperfections like freckles and scars underneath. I also want to note that I wouldn’t say my skin looks particularly matte or dewy. Using powders and dewy products can change the final finish, but this is a natural finish true to its claim.
After four to five hours I notice my natural oils have come out, making the foundation look oily and also putting some more emphasis on my pores. Wearing a pore-filling primer can help, but I notice the foundation doesn’t sink into the skin as well when I use a pore-filler primer. So it’s a balancing act. Pore-filling primer will help with the appearance of pores but then the foundation looks less natural. I prefer visible pores over cakey-looking foundation.
By the end of the day, the foundation has basically rubbed off my face. Having oily sinks breaks down the foundation quicker and therefore makes it easier to rub off. But I’m not entirely surprised because that’s what happens with most foundations.
How does the Skin Tint compare to other lighter coverage foundations? The two other I own are the Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation and the Colourpop Pretty Fresh Tinted Moisturizer. I have an in-depth review of the Colourpop tinted moisturizer and I mentioned the Charlotte Tilbury in my recent favourites video. The Charlotte Tilbury one is quite similar except its finish is dewy. So it looks quite nice but it fades from the face faster. I mentioned in my review but the Colourpop tinted moisturizer pulls pink on me. So it also looks like it’s sitting on top of my skin instead of blending into my skin. Maybe if I got the right shade it would look nicer, but overall I find the Fenty Skin Tint just looks better in my opinion.
How does the Skin Tint compare to the other Fenty foundations? The coverage is much lighter compared to the Soft Matte and Hydrating foundations. The other two are much closer to full coverage. The finish is in the middle. The Soft Matte is obviously matte, in the middle is the Skin Tint with a natural finish and the Hydrating foundation has a dewy finish. I will note using powders and primers can change the finish but that’s generally what they’re like. Each foundation is unique, so if you have the others it won’t be the same.
My final thoughts are that I like this Skin Tint. I think this is the perfect foundation for those light makeup days where I’ll put on this, some powder, brows and mascara. I also like wearing light coverage foundations in the warmer months as well because full coverage foundations can be annoying in the heat and humidity. Some of the complaints I read in reviews are that this Skin Tint can emphasize dry patches but since I have oily skin I cannot attest to that. Overall I think this is a foundation I will continue to reach for and I would recommend.
