Fenty Beauty revolutionised the beauty industry when they came out with 50 shades of their Pro Filt’r foundation, and now they’ve done it again with another 50 shades of concealer! I was really excited about this concealer, especially after reading rave reviews, so I had to try this myself, as well as their new setting powder.
I bought their concealer and setting powder from Harvey Nichols, the concealer costing £19 and their setting powder costing £24. I looked onto the website for the best shade match, which had a helpful table showing which concealer shade corresponded to each foundation shade. Since I am shade 240 in the foundation, I chose shade 235 for the concealer, and the shade ‘Butter’ for the setting powder.
Above is the setting powder in the shade Butter. I really like the packaging of this, and it looks really sleek and expensive.
I decided to try the concealer on top of the Fenty foundation. If you’ve read my review on the foundation, you’ll know that it’s not my favourite, as it is a little bit dry for me, but it does look nice in the summer when my skin is a little oilier. I also do find it breaks me out as well. Anyway, I figured that the concealer is supposed to complement it so I wore it anyway.
At first try, I found the concealer to be a little lacking in coverage (although it says medium to full coverage), and I would say it is light to medium coverage. What I do really like is the finish. I love a concealer that has a skin-like finish, and this definitely has that. The setting powder look amazing when I first put it on. It leaves the skin looking super smooth and velvety, without looking dry or cakey.
This is me wearing the concealer and setting powder. I had them on for about a good 6 hours, and found that the concealer looked quite creased, and the areas I had set my face using the powder looked quite shiny. I tried the concealer again, except instead of under the eyes, I used it to spot-conceal every day for a week (my acne was very bad!) and it worked wonders! Because the concealer has a natural finish, it was perfect for spot concealing, and it lasted all day. I still need to give the setting powder another go, but I do feel you may need a few touch-ups if you’re thinking of wearing it for the whole day.
Have you tried the Fenty concealer and setting powder? Would you like to? Leave me a comment- I’d love to hear your thoughts 🙂
