RiRi has blessed beauty lovers yet again. The Fenty Beauty Eaze Drop Skin Tint is available to shop today. I recently tried it for myself and trust me when I say, it will make you a believer in light coverage products.

Fenty Beauty is known to shake the table where complexion is concerned, and the new Eaze Drop Blurring Skin Tint is no exception. Available in 25 shades, this is the brand’s first light to medium coverage complexion product. Despite the extensive selection, it’s still pretty easy to find your color. Here’s a handy guide from the brand:

  • Pro Filt’r shades 430-498 equate to Eaze Drop shades 20-25.
  • Pro Filt’r shades 345-420 equate to Eaze Drop shades 14-19.
  • Pro Filt’r shades 255-340 equate to Eaze Drop shades 9-13.
  • Pro Filt’r shades 180-250 equate to Eaze Drop shades 4-8.
  • Pro Filt’r shades 100-170 equate to Eaze Drop shades 1-3.

Eaze Drops Put To The Test

I’ll be honest, the phrase “skin tint” usually makes me run the other way. However, this is quarantine Ari speaking and I’ve begun to understand that less is more these days. On the flip side, I’m not willing to sacrifice coverage for a lightweight finish. That’s what makes Fenty Beauty’s Eaze Drops so amazing in my opinion.

The skin tint is light, yet buildable to medium coverage as it claims. What’s neat about this product is that you don’t feel like there’s makeup on your skin. However, the product definitely still covers up dark spots and any other light blemishes.

Swatching it on my hand reminded me of Fenty’s first groundbreaking Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Foundation, but way more hydrating and not as thick. It does blur your imperfections when you build it up to its medium coverage capabilities. I did it for myself and applied the brand’s Pro Filt’r Concealer (shade 430) to achieve this look:

By no means does this formula look like a skin tint on camera or in person. It’s exactly what I expect from a lightweight foundation for people with melanin. Oftentimes, skin tints and lightweight foundations are not brown-skin friendly. And if they do happen cater to deeper complexions, there are usually very few options and they generally don’t take undertones into consideration. Thankfully, this is not the case with this new Fenty Beauty skin tint. 

I will say the Eaze Drop Skin Tint is slimy when you first apply it, and unless you apply powder on top, it doesn’t fully dry down and it does transfer. However, you’re left with a beautiful glow. My skin type is normal to dry, so this formula is right up my alley, but for those with oily skin, you may want to finish your look with some powder or blot throughout the day. 

Despite being unsure of my shade, both shades 21 and 22 work for me and impeccably complement all my other Fenty Beauty products, like the concealer. I’d say the skin tint great for people who don’t wear makeup, but it’s also great for those who do. If you’re not delving into beauty as much these days, this skin tint serves as an amazing lightweight option for your day-to-day needs.
