Review│Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation

Fenty Beauty's Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation is probably the highlight of the entire Fenty Beauty range, I think. For many of us, it's hard to find a shade match when it comes to foundations and truthfully, it can be pretty discouraging sometimes. Enter Fenty Beauty-a brand that's all about inclusivity (love that!), to forget about the standards and bring us a ground-breaking foundation lineup that consists of 40 shades, in a variety of colors and tones. From the palest of hues to the richest tones and everything in between, there is finally a foundation line that all of us can experience and enjoy. And that makes me so so so happy.

The Pro Filt'r Soft Matte foundation is comprised of a long wearing formula that imparts a soft matte finish, while offering a medium-full buildable coverage. It gives skin a smooth appearance, tones down shine, and helps diffuse the look of pores. This foundation is oil free, not pore clogging, and contains a "climate-adaptive technology" that's impervious to sweat and humidity. How cool is that?!

So, here's the deal. I really do like this foundation. But it did take me awhile to realize how different it was to other foundations. When I first gave the Pro Filt'r Soft Matte foundation a try, I wasn't very keen on how it looked on my skin. The foundation clung to dry patches and pooled into my pores. My skin looked rough, man; I was anticipating that soft, filter-like finish which I just didn't see. I was super disappointed, to say the least.

After a couple of trials, I finally got the grasp of how this foundation worked. Based on my experience, this foundation is one of those that look better the longer it's on. Give the foundation a couple minutes to settle on your skin, and that's when you will see all of those awesome features.  

After applying the Pro Filt'r Soft Matte foundation and waiting a bit, my face looks nearly airbrushed, so much softer, and my pores are more refined and less noticeable. The semi-matte finish looks beautiful and very natural against my skin, and it does a lovely job at eliminating the shine on my oil prone areas. This foundation is pretty long-wearing, and I don't really feel the need to set my face or touch up throughout the day since it hangs on so well. 

Note: I have combination skin (oily t-zone, dry everywhere else) and although this foundation has worked out well with my skin, I would advise beauties with dryer skins to try on a sample of this foundation first, just to make sure it gives you the results you want. I suggest this because I have read lots of reviews about this foundation not being very suitable for dry skin.

This foundation has a thin but creamy consistency that's easy to blend and work with. It feels lightweight on the skin, and the medium coverage is indeed buildable to a fuller one.

As I mentioned before, Fenty Beauty's Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation comes in 40 shades, which is amazing! I have the shade 180, which is a good option for those with light skin and warm undertones. I think the color matches me pretty well. I am a MAC NC25 for reference. For those wondering, there is a scent to this foundation, and it's the same fragrance as the one in the Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Primer (review). But unlike the primer, the scent in the foundation does linger on the skin. It's not overtly offensive, but I think I would have preferred this foundation to be fragrance-free.  

This foundation gets two thumbs up from me! It's already one of my staples and I am very much enjoying it. Plus, it's very reasonably priced which is super nice. Stay tuned for more Fenty Beauty reviews coming your way. Up next, I am featuring a timeless, red liquid lipstick that's literally, everything.
