Hey guys! When I saw that Fenty Beauty came out with a new foundation I knew I wanted to test it out. I loved the original, but recently I’ve been liking dewy foundations more. So I have decided to test out both foundations and see which one I like more!
The original Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation is a full coverage, long wearing, matte foundation. The new foundation, the Pro Filt’r Hydrating Longwear Foundation, is full coverage, long wearing but hydrating instead of matte. Both have 50 shades and retail for C$45.
I decided to do a full day wear test for both foundations. To keep the testing fair, I used the same primer and powder, the Dr. Brandt Pores No More Luminizer Primer and the Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting Powder. I love both of these products and I know how they preform. For my testing, I took photos right after I applied the foundation and six hours after application.
I definitely forgot how full coverage the Soft Matte foundation is. I had some acne spots and it covered them no problem. I found that it did last longer throughout the day. At six hours later by foundation was still on. From far away it looked good, but up close my t-zone was oily and my under eyes looked and felt dry.
The Hydrating foundation didn’t conceal my acne as much as the Soft Matte foundation, but still had more coverage than I anticipated for a hydrating foundation. My skin looked more natural. After six hours my foundation had faded and my skin was peaking through. It might bother some people to have the foundation fade away, I like that it didn’t look as dry and cakey as the matte foundation.
My winner is the Hydrating foundation. I think it looks more natural and I prefer the way it wears through the day. I will be keeping the Soft Matte for those times I do want more coverage. Have you tried either of the foundations? Which do you like more? Let me know in the comments!
