Makeup line Fenty Beauty launched in September 2017 by famous singer Rihanna and instantly gained popularity among the beauty community. Countless people continue to rave over the Pro Filtr foundation’s vast shade range and inclusivity of a multitude of skin tones.

The foundation costs $34 and comes in 50 different shades in categories such as light, medium, tan and deep. It claims to leave a long-wearing, soft-matte finish with medium to full coverage.

It is best suitable for people with combination or oily skin types. Those with dry skin could get away with wearing this with a moisturizer underneath but may experience dryness in certain areas throughout the day.

The foundation does oxidize or turn a little darker on the skin after application, but nothing too noticeable. However, this should be kept in mind when shade-matching in store.

In addition, Fenty Beauty recently released the Pro Filtr concealer with an additional 50 shades to go along with the foundation. The Pro Filtr concealer costs $26 and claims to have medium to full coverage, be crease-proof and long-wearing.

The concealer’s coverage is certainly buildable and long-wearing. A little product goes a long way and upon trying the concealer myself, the coverage lasted around 10 hours after application. Everyone’s skin type is different and these products may vary in results or perform differently depending on the person. 

Both of these products felt considerably lightweight on the skin. However, the foundation leaves a matte finish and can be drying for those with dry skin like me. I prefer a luminous finish in comparison.

I appreciate the wide range of shades offered in this launch because it made it super-easy to find the right shade match. This is a huge step in the right direction for inclusivity within the beauty industry.
