Review│Huda Beauty #FauxFilter Foundation

Huda Beauty's highly anticipated #FauxFilter foundation is finally here, and it's already generating quite the buzz among beauty enthusiasts. I knew I wanted to get my hands on the foundation as soon as I found out about it since I love trying out the latest and greatest when it comes to foundations. From what I have seen, the reviews for the #FauxFilter foundation have been pretty mixed so far. Some love it, some don't. I on the other hand, fall into the love it category. Honestly, I think I may have found my new holy grail foundation.

Huda Beauty's #FauxFilter foundation sets out to visibly even and smooth skin texture by diminishing the look of imperfections such as redness, blemishes, scars and hyper-pigmentation. It contains super refined pigments as well as argan oil, to help add hydration to the skin. The fade-proof formula offers a full coverage, and a radiant soft-focus matte finish.

The foundation comes in a sleek, lightweight bottle that contains a pump dispenser-love that. The texture of the foundation is on the creamy side, but it's not superbly thick. It goes on the skin nicely, it doesn't feel heavy or uncomfortable on the skin, and it blends really easy (I like to apply this foundation with a dense buffing brush, like the E.L.F. Ultimate Blending Brush).

Huda Beauty's #FauxFilter foundation range is comprised of 30 shades, which is fabulous. Based on the color descriptions on the Sephora website, I color-matched myself to Chai 210B (for ultra light skin that contains beige and golden undertones) and it turned out to actually be a great match for my skin tone. In MAC terms I am an NC25, for reference. Oh, and in case you were wondering, I don't see much oxidation going on with this foundation. I guess I could say that it gets just a pinch darker after awhile, but it's definitely not something that will throw you off, or extremely noticeable.

When it comes to coverage, this stuff is no joke! One pump-half of that on some days, is pretty much all I need for a full coverage. Of course if you want to go a little extra on the coverage, this foundation is buildable. The effect this foundation imparts on my skin is just beautiful. Flawless, airbrushed, healthy and smooth. I appreciated that this foundation didn't really emphasize dryness on my skin, which most matte foundations tend to do. Speaking of matte, although #FauxFilter has a matte finish, it's a very radiant kind. It's not a matte that looks flat and mask-like on the skin.

I am so impressed at how well the #FauxFilter foundation held up on my skin. I have combination skin (oily t-zone, dry everywhere else), and this foundation looked just as good at the end of the day, as it did when I first applied it. I had it on for about 9 hours or so, and throughout the wear time I didn't have to touch-up any areas since the foundation stayed in tact and didn't migrate around the skin. It even kept my oil/shine at bay!

I typically set all of my foundations with a powder, but with the #FauxFilter foundation I don't really feel the need to do that, since I very much like how it wears and looks on my skin without the addition of a powder. I will say, that the foundation does feel a tiny bit tacky on the skin. I don't think it truly fully sets, but this is something that doesn't really bother me. It's just something to keep in mind.

There is somewhat of an obvious fragrance in this foundation. I can't describe what it is exactly, but I personally don't find it to be offensive. On me, the scent lingers away after awhile, and I don't notice it anymore.

Along with the foundation, the box also contained a sample of the Huda Beauty Complexion Perfection Pre-Makeup Base. I haven't gotten around to giving it a try yet, but it sounds nice.

I love love love Huda Beauty's #FauxFilter foundation! The full coverage and radiant matte finish are right up my alley, and the longevity is the icing on the cake. If I could change one thing about this foundation, it would probably be to make it fragrance-free; just because I know a lot of people aren't too fond of the scent in this. But overall, I couldn't be anymore pleased with a foundation and I have recently shoved aside all of my other foundations, since I am currently all about that Huda Beauty #FauxFilter foundation life!
