Fenty Beauty – Foundation

Fenty beauty, probably the line I had been waiting for ever since Rihanna announced it. Naturally, when it was released I ran straight to the closest Sephora and got myself a few products. Below are my thoughts on the Foundation. I’ll post about the highlights in a separate post so that this doesn’t become so long!


Shade Range: FOURTY FOUNDATION SHADES! And the best part about her foundation is that it include all skin types and the shades decrease without any gaps in between them.


Formula: It feels like a light weight formula, it comes out of the bottle a little watery if you don’t shake well so make sure you do. It has a medium coverage but you can definitely build it up to full coverage. I tried this foundation out with the Benefit POREfession and the Tarte Primer and it worked well with both, but I prefer it with the POREfessional.

Rihanna also has a primer but I have two that I really like so I did not purchase it.

Coverage: I kept it as a medium coverage foundation and it looks flawless on the skin. I liked it better than building it up to the full coverage, it still looks good but not as good as the less coverage.

Finish: It is MATTE. But it is not as drying as I thought it would be. Just moisturize your skin before and use an even primer and this foundation will go on smooth.

Wearability: I tried this foundation on two separate days and both days I had to do some physical activity. This foundation HELD UP. It stayed on my face for about the 10 hour days I had, even though I sweated liked crazy during both of them. I didn’t feel that my foundation got cakey or anything … though a little shine did come through but that was easily taken away by some blotting papers.

Tips with the foundation: I have combination skin, but I found if I did a the Tarte Purple/Gold mask or just any clay mask before, when I applied the foundation it went on so evenly over my dry patches that I was not worried about how the foundation would look.

I really, really love this foundation. Hands down, it is the foundation I reach for every day and literally wake up excited to put it on my face!

I hope you guys liked the review! Let me know what your thoughts are on the foundation or the other Rihanna products!

My review of her highlighters will be up soon!
