Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation
Fenty Beauty by Rihanna has gotten all the buzz this past weekend and like most beauty mavens, I was curious to check it out. Yes another celeb beauty line but we know from her MAC collab that she knows her makeup .
I grabbed a sample of the Pro Filt'r Soft Matte foundation when I popped into Sephora. I love a good matte, this sounded like it would be, and I was not disappointed. It hits it out of the park.
The foundation is very matte yet gives skin some dimension . It doesn't look flat . It covers well, medium to almost full and what especially made me happy , filled in pores well both with and without a pore filling base underneath. Skin looks smooth , covered but not heavy or cakey and healthy. For oily skin it's great . If you are normal to drier, you'll need to prep well as it is on the drier side.
The long wear claim holds up too. By end of day most of it was still in place , If I had been headed out, a quick touch up would've gotten me out the door. It kept shine at bay until midday when I had just a little. So, a tiny bit of powder on the nose and chin. By 5PM I was a good bit more shiny , it was a warm day both inside and out and my skin felt it. But the foundation hadn't worn off much , rare for me . It held up to sweat and oil which is impressive . Seriously, one of the best mattes I've tried and I've tried/use a lot of them.
Have you tried Fenty beauty yet? The Match Stix look pretty good too.
Fenty by Rihanna Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation is $ 34 at Sephora and comes in a whopping 40 shades.
