Tag: Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’R foundation review


In case you have not heard of Fenty Beauty, it was launched in 2017 by singer Rihanna. The brand has been in news constantly for its broad inclusivity across skin tones and gender, especially it’s Pro Filt’R foundation addressing a long-criticized gap in cosmetic industry offerings for women of color. The original foundation launch included 40 shades since expanded to 50. Fenty Beauty launched Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer in 50 shades to match the shades of foundation. Along with the foundation and concealer, I am also going to talk about the primer called Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer. The packaging of the foundation, concealer, and primer is in heavy glass bottles which look and feel very smooth and nice. The light pinkish bottle of primer is definitely so pretty.

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’R foundation is a soft matte, longwear foundation with buildable, medium to full coverage. The foundation is creamy and blends seamlessly into the skin. The finish is shine free, a demi-matte finish which does not looks flat on the skin. The coverage is buildable and does cover my problem areas nicely without looking heavy or cakey. This does keeps my oily areas shine-free for the most time as compared to any other foundation. For my personal liking, I do prefer glowy finish but for this foundation, I do top it up with my liquid highlighter or mix a drop of a radiance primer in the foundation. I would suggest working on the product quickly as you apply for better blending. It did not break me out and the staying time is over 7-8 hours. The foundation does lives up to all the hype and is worth checking out if you love matte, demi-matte finish which is not too matte and not too shiny, with medium to full coverage without the feeling and look of a heavy base. I have swatched shades 330 and 345. 330 matches my skin tone and would be even a better match for summers. I might go a little lighter for winters.

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer is a creamy, longwear, creaseproof liquid concealer that delivers light-as-air, medium to full coverage. It gives medium coverage to cover my dark spots, blemishes, and pigmentation plus works nicely as an under eye brightener. It does not look cakey or breaks out on the skin, neither does it cling to the dry areas around the breakouts. I have swatched shades 330 and 345. 330 matches my skin tone and would be even a better match for my skin tone during summers. I might go a little lighter for winters.

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer is a shine-stopping, pore-diffusing makeup primer that smooths the way for better foundation application and longer wear with an instant retouch effect. I am literally in love with this primer, it is one of those primers that keep the oil on my skin in control. I apply it to the areas my skin is most oilier and even at the end of the day I can see and feel the difference. I was not expecting to be this much impressed with this primer, this does what it claims. The skin looks and feels smooth, ready for foundation, pores are blurred. This also works nicely to control to over-dewy or over-shiny finish, which is usually when I use a dewy foundation on my already-oily areas on the skin, where the result is very shiny. I use it under my glowy or radiant finish foundation and the combination stays put all day. Another thing I wanted to mention is despite being shine-free and mattifying, this primer is moisturizing, does not stick to the problem areas.

Last but not least, Fenty Beauty Precision Makeup Sponge which is a 3-sided makeup sponge designed without latex. This is not my first makeup sponge, I do like using makeup sponge or brushes depending upon the coverage and finish I am looking to achieve. It works nicely to apply and blend any formula—liquid, cream, or powder. I like how soft it is and how versatile it is while applying or blending any formula.

Overall, I know I am late to try Fenty Beauty but it is definitely worth the hype. The range of shades for all the products and the formulas, very practical and great of everyday use. I would love to check more products from the brand, I will keep you guys posted. For now, I am really enjoying the products and you can definitely check these out depending on what you are looking for and I have explained my experience in detail for each product I have used.
