Review│Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Primer

PURCHASED

I can't believe I haven't gotten around to posting my Fenty Beauty reviews! I picked up a couple of products back when Fenty Beauty made it's debut in September, and let me say, I have been having lots of fun trying everything out. I have definitely encountered a couple of gems, and I can't wait to share my thoughts on them with you guys over the next several posts.

The products in the Fenty Beauty lineup are comprised of lightweight formulas with buildable coverage, that "make skin look like skin. Fenty Beauty is all about inclusivity, with products that will work for a wide range of skin types and skin tones (the Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation comes in 40 different shades!). Everything in the Fenty Beauty range is effortless, refreshing, and beautiful. With the line quickly expanding with new products, there is literally something for everyone.

Today, I want to chat about the Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Primer, which is unlike any other primer I have tried.

Review
The Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Primer creates a smooth canvas for foundation application by absorbing shine, diffusing the look of pores, and evening out skin tone and texture. It comes in a slim and sleek frosted glass bottle, that contains a pump dispenser.

Upon first applying the Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Primer-I use one pump to cover my whole face, the creamy formula quickly absorbs into my skin, giving it a smoother look and feel. It doesn't cling to dry bits, and I would go far as to say it's even a little moisturizing too, which is a nice surprise since many primers I have encountered aren't. The primer is comfortable and lightweight on the skin, and I like that it doesn't dry down totally matte; it allows a radiance to peek through my skin which I just love. This primer does tone down any shine I may have (my t-zone area is where I get oily the most), and it helps make my skin more uniform in tone I have noticed.

The Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Primer contains a soft pink hue that goes on translucent. It's also scented, which I don't mind since scent dissipates after awhile on the skin.



Pro Filt'r contains something called an "invisipink" formula (it does have a soft pink hue which goes on translucent) that creates a trace-less, blurred and filtered effect on all skin tones. My pores and skin are definitely softened and more refined when I have on Pro Filt'r. The effect and feel is so nice, that I would totally feel comfortable just rocking this primer on it's own. On my combination skin, I find that this primer helps prolong the wear of my foundation/face makeup-for the most part. Even though Pro Filt'r started off strong when it came to absorbing the oils on my skin when I first applied it, I see shine start peeking through my oily areas after a couple hours. It's not too much of a big deal for me though, since I can just easily touch up with a light dusting of powder.

But if your skin is on the oily side, I suggest first trying a sample of this primer, to see how well it performs on your skin.

Overall
Fenty Beauty's Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Primer is probably one of the most unique face primers I have encountered. The creamy texture of the primer is super pleasant when compared to traditional primers, that have a silicone consistency. The soft and blurred effect this primer imparts on my skin is right up my alley, and I appreciate the moisture boost that this primer offer. Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Primer is undoubtedly going to make a great addition to my beauty routine during the colder season when dry skin seems to be inevitable. I didn't think Pro Filt'r performed very well at keeping my oils at bay, but it did help my foundation last everywhere else on my face that doesn't have an oily issue.
