Fenty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Foundation Review

Today I’m sharing my Fenty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Foundation Review in Shade 100 with you. As a refresher, I have sensitive, dry skin. I also have rosacea. And I have seborrheic dermatitis. This is also known as eczema or psoriasis. It causes dry patches around my nose and eyebrows.

When I initially emailed Fenty Beauty about their cruelty free status, I didn’t get a response but other bloggers said the company was slammed with their launch. I tried a short 2 question email.

I said:

Hi!

I just wanted to confirm that Fenty Beauty has no plans to sell in China or in any country that tests on animals?

Thank you!

Fenty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Foundation in Shade 100 on Me

For those of you who don’t know, I match my foundation to the pale skin on my neck and chest. I don’t match to my face. My face has a lot of surface redness from my rosacea. So my face appears darker or redder than my neck and chest. Since I don’t enjoy walking around with my head appearing darker than the rest of me, I match foundation to my neck and chest. That’s just what works for me.

I took the photos below with natural daylight and my single ring light. I did not use any filler lights. I did not use any filters. I did not retouch these images at all. You can see all of my skin’s flaws, texture, and pores.

  • 100% concur with what you said re: shade 100 drying down darker and the overall formula not being suited for dry skin. I swatched it on the back of my hand and at first it looked okay– like cool-yellow leaning, which would suit me– but over the next half hour it had dried down to darker than my hand and much more peachy/orange looking. It didn’t sit well on texture and I wasn’t willing to mess with primers to get it to work. I did swatch her highlighter in Metal Moon which I liked– much more subtle than expected and definitely dupable though. Love MUG Celestial on you!
    I did want to say one thing– you mentioned you had seborrheic dermatitis and that that was the same as psoriasis. As far as I know, those are not the same thing– psoriasis is autoimmune and people with it often end up on immune suppressants and so forth.

  • Thank you so much for this thorough review! I hate it when foundation oxidizes; it is SO frustrating. When I first scrolled through the pictures I was all, “What is on her cheeks?!? I must have it!” I should have known it was Makeup Geek Celestial highlighter. It looks amazing on you. It’s totally going on my Christmas list!

    Thanks for all you do for us pale ladies. It’s so refreshing to come to your blog and see things that I know will work for me.

    • You’re welcome! So glad you love Makeup Geek Celestial. It’s my all-time favorite highlighter. I’m sure people will complain that I’m being a ‘pale princess’ and complaining about how shade 100 doesn’t match my skintone perfectly, but I’m so sick of having to add white to foundations to get a match.

  • I’ve been dying to hear what you think of this. It sounds good for my oily skin, but I’m worried about the fragrance.

  • I was hoping that the stick foundation would work better on you than the liquid but it obviously oxidizes too much. I think the stick also makes your skin look drier than the liquid. You gave these a fair shot and unfortunately they just aren’t right for you.
