I’m sure you’ve heard of it by now. The Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation (say that five times fast) is one of the most talked about products this year. Rihanna took two years to develop her makeup range to ensure that it’s all-inclusive and the products are high quality.

Taken from the Fenty website, Rihanna spent the two years,

focusing on a wide range of traditionally hard-to-match skin tones, creating formulas that work for all skin types, and pinpointing universal shades. Fenty Beauty products are designed to feel lightweight, even as they deliver buildable coverage that effortlessly layers, to ultimately “make skin look like skin.

The range includes 40 shades of foundation fit for those with Albinism and those with very dark skin. Fenty Beauty also included highlighters, concealers, primers, lipstick and more. It’s incredibly refreshing to have a makeup line that focuses on having something for everyone. So often makeup collections only include a handful of shades of foundation and concealer that definitely don’t work for everyone.

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Foundation Review

I’ve tried wearing the foundation many ways, including with and without primer, baking, and applying with different brushes and sponges. My favorite way, however, is to wear the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer underneath and apply the foundation with a damp beauty blender. I then set everything with my Coty airspun loose powder.

To be blunt, I’ve never used a foundation as amazing as this one. The coverage is so buildable, and no matter how much you try it will never look cakey. The finish falls somewhere between matte and dewy, providing a natural yet flawless look. It truly is a filter in a bottle.

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Foundation Review

There were two things that truly blew me away about this foundation. The first is oil control. I was expecting a semi-matte foundation to look oily on my skin halfway through the day, but that was not the case. Like I said, I use a primer and powder with the foundation, but I do that no matter what product I’m wearing. When I go to take my makeup off at the end of the day the Fenty foundation is still the same flawless finish with no sign of any oil coming through.

The second thing that impressed me is its staying power. Foundation always wears off of my nose first, so the fact that my nose didn’t resemble Rudolph at the end of the day was shocking, to say the least. It also doesn’t crease around my nose or under my eyes, which I appreciate!

I honestly can’t rave enough about the Fenty Beauty foundation. Rihanna did an incredible job developing this product, and despite the $32 price tag, I will definitely be buying it again. I highly recommend going to your local Sephora, getting color matched, and asking for a sample. You’ll be running back the next week to buy the full size!

Key Points:

  • Soft matte finish
  • Long-wearing
  • 40 shades
  • No fragrance
  • Buildable coverage

I’ve heard such good things about the Fenty line! I usually wear BB cream just on my t-zone, do you think you could blend it out from the t-zone with this foundation? or is it a more full-face product?

I think it’d definitely work in the t-zone! It’s very blendable and looks natural.

sweet, I’ll have to give it a try!

Ohh, I’ve been really intrigued by Fenty Beauty but my nearest Harvey Nichols is a bit of trek to get to for me to test the products out. I’m a bit torn on the foundation as I have dry skin but I’ve heard the other products are amazing too!

Even with dry skin I think you would like it. It’s a soft matte finish so it still leaves a bit of a glow on the skin.

I definitely want to try this out as my foundation next! I love the fact that it stays matte!

Yes, definitely give it a try! Even just go to Sephora and get a little sample.

I’ve been DY.ING. to try this foundation, but I chickened out last time I was at Sephora and stuck with a tried and true brand when I exchanged my foundation for a different color! It’s definitely next on my list though, I’ve heard such great things about it, including from this post.

I have GOT to try this line!!! I have heard sooo many good things about her foundations and products (that trophy wife highlighter looks amazing on everyone!), but I haven’t taken the plunge yet. I need to get it together!

I want this so bad! Everyone has been giving it rave reviews!

I’ll definitely have to try this. I never really wore foundation because I was afraid it would look cakey or or not blend well. This sounds like a great option.

Loved the Fenty foundation also! Crazy how it works on such a diverse set of skin tones! Great post!

I love trying out new foundations and getting the info prior! That always helps.

I’m almost out of my BECCA foundation and this is inspiring me to check out Fenty — I’ve heard great things and if it works well on your T-zone, then I’m sold! 🙂
