My Skin: dry, sensitive
Fenty Shade: 150 (light, neutral)
About the Product
Fenty Beauty Eaze Drop Blurring Skin Tint (29.50 USD; Made in Italy) - is described as a weightless blurring skin tint with a light-medium coverage. The product claims to be humidity-, sweat- and transfer-resistant.
Packaging: the skin tint comes in a light and petite dropper bottle made of mattified plastic. Although it looks small, the bottle contains an exact same amount of product as the brand's other two foundations (32 ml/ 1.08 oz). It does cost 6.5 USD less, making it the most affordable base product in the range.
Formula, Texture: Eaze Drop has a water-based, dimethicone-rich, liquid formula with a few hydrating ingredients (like Sodium Hyaluronate) highlighted towards the end of this product's ingredients list.

Shades: 25 flexible shades split into three undertones (neutral, warm, cool) and five skin tone categories (light, light-medium, medium, medium-deep, deep). Fenty Beauty have a great color matching guide on Sephora for those of you, who already know their original Fenty shade. If you don't, I do recommend doing a bit of research beforehand to ensure you pick the best shade.
Although shade 2 is not identical to 150 (it is a hair lighter, but neutral undertone is perfect), it still matches me perfectly.
Scent: a very faint scent similar to Fenty Beauty original foundation; barely noticeable. Fragrance is not listed as an ingredient.
Application: now, the key selling point for me was the idea that I could [possibly] apply this product in seconds using my fingers. I don't know about you, but I am pretty low-maintenance on a day-to-day basis, having little to no time to finesse my makeup, which is why I was very curious to see if that claim was, in fact, true.
And yes, it is
Eaze Drop has this name for a reason - it is one of the user-friendliest base products I have tried in my reviewing years. Shake the bottle, pour a small amount of skin tint and apply it with your fingertips. Blends out with ease and plays well with both cream and powder formulas that you layer underneath and on top of it. You can build it up, but in my personal opinion it looks best when you use one, maximum two sheer layers.
On a few occasions this tint did accentuate some minor dry/flaky areas (like those around the nose and forehead). Nothing a proper exfoliation and prep can't fix, so I do not consider it a con. In my case it did not accentuate pores.

Finish: natural skin finish (not dewy). Complexion appears smooth, tone is evened out. Coverage is light, so you still see minor imperfections, like blemishes or pigmentation. Smart spot concealing is key to achieve the ultimate "no makeup" makeup look with Eaze Drop.
Wear, Feel: Eaze Drop does wear for 8+ hours without any issues. It does not get patchy or blotchy over time. The finish might get more dewy as day goes by, so if you have oilier skin type, make sure to set your base.
This is one of the most weightless formulas ever invented. You hardly feel it and with the right shade match, people won't even understand that you have any makeup on. The kind of visual trickery us, makeup enthusiasts, love the most (wink, wink).
Eaze Drop did transfer onto my face mask slightly (as to be expected).
who is going to like it
If you enjoy light coverage base products with natural skin finish (neither matte, nor extra glowy), you are going to fall head over heels for Eaze Drop.
Formula-wise, this product should work for most skin types. Dry and normal in particular. If you are more on combination/oily side, make sure to either use a mattifying primer or set your base with a translucent powder. If you have very dry and textured skin, exfoliation and rich moisturizers will be your best friends here.
Excellent product for beauties of all complexions and ages.
This is easily one of the best products that Fenty Beauty have created. Not only does it live up to its claims, but it turned out to be better than expected. Unlike most light coverage products of its kind, Eaze Drop actually does add a beautiful airy coverage. It is not a time-wasting step in one's makeup routine, because unlike its rivals (think Glossier), this formula does deliver enough pigment to even out your skin tone, all while remaining undetectable. I could not think of a more perfect skin tint for an everyday wear and will be repurchasing it as long as it exists. A freaking ++
