As the season changes, so does my requirement for my makeup. In the Summer heat I lean towards long wearing, yet breathable coverage foundations. While in search of the perfect product, I received theFenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation. Available in an astounding 50 shades!
Before I dive into the product’s performance. Let me touch upon how amazing it is for a brand to have a whooping 50 shades of foundation with various undertones. For someone like myself who is of a medium complexion, I often find myself mixing shades together to create my own shade. As there are often gaps between the lighter shade and the next deep shade, in most ranges of foundations.
My perfect match for Summer is 290 and for the cooler months I feel 260 would be a close match for my complexion.
Upon application, the formula is on the runnier side. You have a decent amount of time to blend out the product before it sets. Granted it is a soft-matte finish.
With one application it provides medium coverage, which can easily be built up to full coverage with a second application.
I would definitely note, that this foundation works best if your skin is well prepped beforehand. Otherwise it has the ability to enhance any imperfections if you go in with a second application. Less is definitely more, so always begin with a small amount of product. That being said the finish is absolutely flawless!
Fenty Pro Filt’R Foundationwears for well over 12 hours. Since I have dry skin, I actually prefer how my skin starts to look at the 4/5 hour mark.
Fenty Pro Filt’R Foundationsurvives the Summer heat and doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. Which is important to me. As I want the coverage but there’s nothing more horrid than the feeling of a thick layer of makeup under the beaming sun. Thanks to their oil-free formula, which is “made with climate-adaptive technology that’s resistant to sweat and humidity, and won’t clog pores.”
Let’s talk about Fenty’s eye catching packaging. These reflective rose gold octagon compacts house a generous amount of product.
I tried out the shades:
Fenty’s Sun Stalk’r Bronzers are incredibly smooth to the touch and their mildly creamy formulas, allow it to blend seamlessly. It has a matte finish that stays put for about 8 hours, before it begins to fade.
I am in awe of the natural glow the shade Shady Biz provides! For a more sculpted look, I go in with Shady Biz and I$land Ting.
The bronzers are long-wearing and transfer-resistant. Which provides peace of mind knowing you can extend the application out to your collarbone and decolletage without worrying of transfer.
Today I’m sharing my thoughts on one of Fenty’s newest releases. The Fenty Pro Filt’R Concealer. To accompany the amazing Pro Filt’R Soft Matte Longwear Foundation. Which is still highly raved about, after being released in 2017.
Let’s talk packaging. The Concealers are encased in aesthetically pleasing tubes, made from a non-slip material. Grip is important to those like myself, who have accidentally dropped at least a dozen glass tubes of concealer in their lifetime. So 10/10 from me for this one.
The formula is creamy and provides a FULL coverage, matte finish. It’s a one step correct and conceal kind of product. As it’s able to both conceal discolouration and brighten tired/dull looking skin. The coverage is intense and hence why you only need a very small amount of product to get the job done. I don’t use my normal swiping application method as I do with other concealers but rather apply 3 small dots to the area that I’m concealing.
I personally prefer dewier formulations when it comes to concealer but then I have to compromise the wear time. Although thePro Filt’R Concealeris completely matte. I’m able to make it work for me, by generously prepping my skin before application. I can get away without setting the Pro Filt’R Concealer and don’t experience any creasing until the 6/7 hour mark.
