HEY LOVES! I JUST WANTED TO DO A QUICK REVIEW ON THE FENTY BEAUTY PRO FILT’R SOFT MATTE FOUNDATION THAT CAME OUT A WHILE AGO. I’VE BEEN TESTING IT OUT FOR A FEW WEEKS NOW AND I THOUGHT I’D SHARE SOME OF MY INSIGHTS WITH YOU. HOPE YOU ENJOY!
I’ve been using this for quite some time now and I have to say I do really like the product. I have dry skin and I make sure to moisturize really well whenever I do use it. MAKE SURE to moisturize because it will cling a bit to dry patches if you have any on your face! I believe that this product is suitable for more oilier skin types, but I was able to make it work with my skin.
The liquid isn’t too thick or too runny, and I really like that about this foundation. I usually have an issue with foundations being either way too heavy on the face or just not giving me enough coverage because of the thin “watery” consistency. This foundation is exactly in the middle which is awesome for someone like me who’s picky with the consistency of their foundation. Don’t get me wrong, I do own foundations that are either end of the spectrum BUT I prefer it to be right in the middle.
I received this as a sample with one of my Sephora orders, and I was able to get the shade 220 which is a touch bit too golden for my skin tone, but with added concealer it shows up really nice and doesn’t look off at all! Can’t even tell a difference.
When it comes to coverage, I must say this foundation does quite well! I do believe it’s claims in that it is a medium to full coverage foundation, because 1 to 2 pumps is all I need to get the desired coverage that I look for on an everyday basis. When I’m in need of even more coverage I just add an extra little pump to the areas that really need it. Overall I’m loving the way it looks and feels on the skin- it gives off a beautiful “matte” skin-like finish. AGAIN, prepping the skin with a moisturizer and hydrating primer is key when using this foundation on drier skin types! I usually use a dense brush in order to distribute the product more evenly on the face, and it does a great job. No streaking with this foundation, it covers my redness and problem areas very well. It also lasts all day- haven’t had any real issues with it coming off anywhere around my face. Sometimes my t-zone gets a tad bit oily, but this foundation seems to “stick” nicely which is a huge plus cause’ I do deal with that issue sometimes!
Honestly, I can’t say that I have any cons for this foundation… in my opinion, a brand, especially a new brand that comes right out onto the makeup scene with 40 amazing shades that suits all types of skin tones is already winning in my books. I love the fact that Rihanna had all of us in mind, and made sure to create a truly inclusive brand that reflects each and every one of us. Lots of brands don’t cater to many skin types, especially darker skin tones, and I love that Fenty Beauty has literally changed the ‘foundation shade’ sphere. Granted, there are some brands that cater to a wide variety of skin tones and types, but to come out with 40 shades on their first launch… to me that’s absolutely incredible, and reflects the beauty inside and outside of the creator herself.
Congrats Rihanna- your brand is amazing and I will definitely be purchasing more from you. Love you and what you stand for!

“Foundation is one of those areas in the beauty industry that has a big void for women at extreme ends of the shade spectrum. There’s this middle ground that’s covered really, really well. But then if you’re very pale or if you’re very dark, there aren’t a lot of options. And so, I wanted to make sure that women of all skin tones were covered so they could be included in what I created.”—Rihanna, Brand Founder
