I’ve been waiting to review the Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Foundation by FENTY BEAUTY for weeks now! Well, it’s finally here!
Warning: Do not try to guess which colour would match you looking at swatches online, go into the store and get the right colour for your skin. Remember, the foundation dries a bit darker so going into the store is a must!
As you can see from the image above, there are 40 different shades featured in the Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Foundation by FENTY BEAUTY. The shades range from light to deep tones, luckily, if you can’t find the perfect shade for you, you can even mix two shades.
After three attempts, I finally found a shade that matches my skin tone. I’m currently using the shade #200 because I have olive toned skin but it gets lighter during the winter time. I will most likely need to darken the shade in the summer but if you’re like me, you know that mixing foundations can be even better than sticking to just one. If you’d like to try this foundation, you can purchase it at any Sephora store.
Make sure to shake the bottle well before applying it to your skin because this is a fast drying formula. In addition, you should use a primer before applying any foundation so that you can avoid any unevenness or any blotchiness. I like to use this foundation only for going out on the weekends because I prefer the “no foundation look” on most days.
DRY VS. WET
You will notice that this foundation is easy to blend and dries pretty quickly upon application but isn’t chalky or too dry looking in case you’re wondering about that. For full coverage, I prefer the dry look and using a foundation brush to apply it to my face. For a dewy look, I opt for a damp beauty blender and by doing this, you can have full control over how much coverage you want this foundation to give you.
I suggest pumping on your fingertips and then applying the foundation on one side of your face to avoid any dryness or patchy areas. I love the foundation but since it is a matte finish, it dries VERY FAST so you don’t want to prep both sides of your face, just prep one side and blend it into your skin in a fast yet gentle motion.
DOES IT REALLY LAST FOR 10 HOURS?
Absolutely, however, only if you set it with a loose powder! Please don’t forget to set your makeup if you plan on having it on all day. You will notice that you have to touch up once or twice throughout the day and that is if you have oily areas on your face like me. If you are someone who is constantly on the go but want a natural foundation, the Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Foundation by FENTY BEAUTY is perfect for you.
IS THIS FOUNDATION GOOD FOR ON-CAMERA MOMENTS?
I’ve only taken one picture wearing this foundation and it definitely lives up to the reviews. It is a great and affordable foundation that can be worn during photoshoots, live videos and any on-camera moments!
WHAT DO I LOVE ABOUT THIS FOUNDATION?
It’s quite affordable, allows my skin to breathe without clogging my pores, it is an oil-free formula and it is 100% cruelty free!!!! Thank you Rihanna!
Fenty Beauty delivers one of the best foundations I’ve used in a long time. Although I rarely wear foundation, this is the one I’ll be reaching for when I need one! At a solid price point and a lot of product for your buck, you’ll be favouriting this foundation in no time!
