FENTY FOUNDATION: hit or miss?

Hey guys! If you read my Current Wishlist blog post, you know I wanted to try the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Foundation. I have been obsessing over it since launch and seeing all my YouTube faves wear it so when my friend gifted me a Sephora gift card for Christmas I had to get it.

So was it a hit or miss in my opinion?

Sadly it was a miss. A huge miss actually.

I ordered shade 100, which is the lightest shade in the collection. The color matched me perfectly, for a while until it oxidized orange. 😫

The first day I wore it I had to be at work by 6am so I was getting ready at 5 and it was still dark outside when we left so I didn’t get a great look. I took my lunch around 9am and went to touch up my lipstick, and you guys….. I was shook in the worst way.

All over my skin was separated foundation and so much texture that I don’t normally have.

I had liquid highlighter on as a primer (mixed with moisturizer) which is how I do my foundation every day, but because it was the Colourpop highlight that I hadn’t tried before I basically wrote off the separation and texture on that.

At night I washed my face like normal and went to bed.

I woke up with red, raw skin that was so dry. I typically have normal skin with a little oil on my tzone. But my face felt so scaly.

I took a full day off of makeup and just wore moisturizer.

Today when I went in for the foundation I decided no highlight drops, I also tried to apply with a brush. It was going on so patchy I switched back to a damp beauty sponge.

I started to notice a little separation on my cheeks and chin so I blended it in as best as possible and put on my concealer and loose powder as normal, but after a few minutes you could see in the mirror all the separation.

I went to clean it off with a warm towel and my face burned so bad. I instantly was beat red after removing it.

Soooooo needless to say I will be bringing it back to Sephora. But I am so bummed about it.

I think if you have super oily skin this may work for you. Unfortunately it was not the case for me.

I’m now in the market for a new foundation, leave me suggestions in the comments. 🤗
