I think I have finally found my favorite foundation. And if you have ever tried looking for your Holy Grail foundation, then look no more, this might just be your favorite foundation too. FENTY BEAUTY, from Rihanna (Fenty is her last name) happens to be one of my favorite brands. And this foundation is just about the best out there. Why? Read on and find out!

This foundation is a soft matte, not 100% matte, longwear foundation with medium to full coverage that comes in a huge array of 50 shades! Yes, I said 50 beautiful shades for just about every skin tone. It gives skin an instantly smooth, pore refined, shine-free finish that easily builds coverage. The foundation is oil-free and is made with climate-adaptive technology that's resistant to sweat and humidity. Because it is so fabulous, it is non-comedogenic, meaning it will not clog pores and will work on your skin wherever you are. Best of all, it is light-as-air. And even better, it is longwearing, so it lasts all day long without coming off on clothes or better yet, your mask. It is undetectable on skin, so you always look like yourself. It blends beautifully. 

How did they do it? With obsessive research! They created the perfect range of FENTY BEAUTY shades for all, had exclusive insights from the world's top makeup artists and tested the foundation in real life, on real people. FENTY BEAUTY figured that it takes the right balance of tone and texture to make the best matte foundation work on every skin type. So they obsessed over custom pigment levels to capture the truest tones with a soft matte finish that is just right, not too matte and not too shiny. It is...perfection. The result is a comfortable longwear foundation formula that let's skin look like skin and is made for all people to love. Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation is a 2018 Allure Best of Beauty Breakthrough Award Winner!

PRO FILT'R Soft Matte Longwear Foundation Shades

Shade Finding Tips: Always shake the bottle prior to use to activate. The rich pigments need a moment to dry down to their truest color.  When you are testing shades, remember to let the formula dry completely to find your perfect match. Deciding between two shades? Try the lighter shade rather than the darker shade, it is always better to go a little bit lighter than darker. For example, my shade is #120 Fair Skin With Neutral Undertones. It is best to test the shade out on your jawline, not on your wrist, as your wrist will be darker than your jawline. Also, do not test it out on your neck, which is also not the same color as your face. The point is to match your face and your neck. Usually your face has some natural ruddiness that gets covered with the foundation.

How to pick the right foundation and primer




Comparing PRO FILT'R Soft Matte and Hydrating Foundation 


For me, this foundation is absolutely wonderful. It goes on so smoothly (I use a Beautyblender to apply) and for a light look I usually use about three pumps and will build coverage with about two more if I want to cover more up. And it dries down to a soft matte finish and is just really undetectable on the skin. You literally cannot see it. I am loving this foundation so much that I have forsaken all other ones right now!!!!!! I know that this is probably not good considering all of the foundations I have, but I really just love how good it looks on my skin. One thing is good is that I only have to apply a tiny bit of setting powder over it, which is great. Here are some photos of me wearing it:





As you can see, I still have some of my sun damage showing through on my forehead, so I am not wearing it full coverage on some days. Whereas others I am. That is the nice thing about this foundation, it is buildable coverage and it is perfect for any season. It resists heat and humidity, making it perfect for summer or even winter because it has even the most perfect finish. And with mask wearing now the norm, it won't come off on your mask!
