So I know I’m kind of late to the Pro Filt’r party (ok … I’m very late), but I have finally got my hands on one of the most hyped up foundations of the past few years, thanks to a very cheeky Black Friday deal (£9 for a foundation … I nearly fell off my chair).
But boy was it worth the wait!
What I got & First Impressions
Seeing as there was such a good offer on the Fenty Beauty website during the Black Friday sale … it would have been rude to just buy one item. Seeing as I now frequent fake tan a lot more I thought it would be wise to buy a few options in shades for when I’m tanned vs me looking like a piece of A4 paper. I’m not going to lie I am the worst when it comes to guessing my shade, so I used the trusted Findation.com (a must have for online foundation shoppers) and ordered the shade 140 for my natural colouring and 210 for when I’m tanned. I also threw in a mini Total Cleans’r for good measure, because I was running out and I needed a few more pounds to hit free shipping.
I had never ordered from the official Fenty site before so I didn’t really know what to expect or how long it would take. But to my surprise, five days after I ordered the foundations arrived at my door! What was also nice was how well packaged everything was and that paper was used instead of plastic so everything could be recycled (Yes RiRi!)
I know that a lot of people aren’t really into the squeeze tube vibe for foundations, but I think its pretty cool (especially for someone clumsy like me who can very easily smash a glass bottle), its also very easy to travel with to, just as an FYI. The packaging says to massage the tube well before use to get rid of any air bubbles.
As a side note to those who are interested, this particular product is vegan, however not all of the Fenty Beauty range is so I would always double check the ingredient lists before purchasing. Fenty Beauty also say they are cruelty free on the website.
The foundation is a medium coverage but Im pretty sure you can get it to a full if you built it up. I have put a before and after below so you can see the difference after just one pump of foundation on my skin. I was amazed that it gave such a smooth and flawless application and worked really well with my Bare Minerals primer. While it did say it was long wearing, I did apply some of my trusted Glossier setting powder in my oily sections and also where my mask would be during work, and I have to say, despite it being a hydrating formula it has a pretty good staying power. The shades I picked were a perfect match (which never happens for me) and I didn’t notice any oxidising throughout the day too so another win for the foundation.
I have to say I was very impressed with the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Hydrating foundation, but I wouldn’t say that I was surprised. Fenty has really changed the game with complexion products since they launched back in 2017, not only with the quality of their products, but the inclusivity that they keep building on. No wonder I needed help to find my right match because there were so many options to choose from. A lot of brands really need to look at what Fenty have achieved in the past four years and rethink their own ranges.
If you are looking for a new long wearing and hydrating foundation that doesn’t feel heavy, this one is the best I’ve tried and I would probably say it will become my go to in the future.
Let me know if you’ve tried this foundation or any of the other products from Fenty Beauty.
See you soon
