Fenty Beauty First Impressions

Hey Everyone

Todays post is going to be my first impressions on the Fenty Beauty makeup that I picked up the other month. This is a brand that I have been wanting to try for ages so I took the plunge and picked up the three products I have been wanting to try the most which are the foundation, primer and lip gloss. So let's jump straight in to the first impressions. 

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Primer:

The lady at the counter swatches this on my hand when she was testing the foundation and I was sold. It is described as "A shine-stopping, pore-diffusing primer that smooths the way for better foundation application and longer wear with an instant retouch effect" on Rihanna's site and it defiantly dose just that. I found it helped to smooth my skin providing a soft base for the foundation to be applied onto. 

Do I think it helped with the wear time of the foundation? That I am not so sure of just yet however it did make my face feel a lot better and helped the foundation apply easier. I just need to test if it helps the wear time so I will get back to you on that. As for price the product costs £24 which is on the higher end for a primer.

I normally go for a hydrating primer so was worried this wouldn't suit me but boy was I wrong . For me this is just as good as my Laura Mercier hydrating primer. So Far So Good.

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Soft Matt Longwear Foundation: 

I picked up the foundation in the shade 110 which is the shade I was matched to and I think I finally have a foundation which matches me perfectly. So that alone is a big plus as I always end up with one to yellow or to pink or to light or to dark and this is spot on. I was slightly weary as it is matt and I do have dry skin but it's been fine. It dosent sink into any dry patches and although it's matt it dosent give the cakey look that some matt foundations can give. 

Wear time is great around 6-8 hours but by this point I did notice some patches on my face in my nose area, but this tends to happen with all my foundations as my nose is a naturally dry area. 
Id say the coverage level is medium, it covers a lot of my redness but isn't completely full coverage.

First impressions overall are great, the shade match is outstanding and I am glad someone has catered for all skin tones and for porcelain skins like me. It is so great not being the lightest shade for once. The finish and wear time are also what I would expect of a high end foundation that costs £26 for 32ml of product. 

Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Lipgloss:

This was something I had wanted to try since the range launched. A lipgloss that is universally flattering? I was a bit skeptical about this as how could a lipgloss that could suit me a very pale person suit someone with a deep complexion? Well apparently it can. 

This product is very similar to the Dior Lip Glow lip balms in that it reacts to your natural lip colour and provides you with a colour that is flattering to your skin tone. This is just gorgeous on me it pulls peachy and wore alone provides a little shimmer to the lips or wore over a lipstick e.g PillowTalk by Charlotte Tilbury can help to complete the look.

This does feel slightly sticky on application but that soon goes away after a little while. I found this lasted around 2 hours on me which I am happy with. It costs £16 so mid range for a lip gloss but so so worth the price. I honestly feel like this will become my holy grail lip product that I can't live without and that's a big statement to make.
