Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Hydrating Longwear Foundation

Oh boy oh boy. Fenty Foundations. A product I have been wanting to try since they first launched in 2017. Today I present to you: my thoughts about the Fenty Beauty Hydrating Foundation.

Remember when Fenty Beauty came out with their first Pro Filt’r Matte foundation a few years ago? I was so excited but knew that a matte finish wouldn’t suit my skin type, so I decided to skip on it. And then they announced the hydrating version and I was excited all over again. It took me a while to buy it due to low buys or a project pan. But a few months ago, I finally bit the bullet and purchased it. Here are some of my thoughts!


I really like the squeezy tube appearance but it also has a pump which I appreciate. You get 32ML which is a little more than the average foundation. The price for the Fenty Pro Filt’r Hydrating Foundation is €34-$35 which is a fair price for a mid-range brand.

I actually picked up this foundation in a little set called ‘Hydrating Complexion Essentials With Sponge’ which is $64 for $83 value. And I also picked up the set during a -25% sale, so it ended up being very cheap compared to the original price!

An ultra blendable, skin-smoothing longwear foundation that delivers it all, with medium to full coverage, serious staying power, and a natural finish perfect for all skin typesβ€”in a groundbreaking range of 50 shades.


My goodness, I don’t know what to say. I’m actually so disappointed by this foundation. It says that it’s hydrating but it looks like a matte formula on my skin. It emphasizes my dry patches and I have quite a few on a dry day. It also puts more emphasis on my fine lines on the face so I’m not the biggest fan. The biggest problem is the undertone. The undertone is so incredibly yellow. I don’t think anyone is as yellow as this one. It just looks so off.

Yeah, unfortunately this foundation is not my favourite. The shade is not my cup of tea and the formula is probably one of the worst I have ever tried. I’m just so confused because the product has hydrating in it, but I see absolutely no hydration. If you have oily skin, you might like this. But I don’t recommend this for dry skin.

That’s it for today’s review. I always feel a bit guilty when posting a negative review but it has to be done from time to time. This is unfortunately a fail for me.
What do you think of this foundation?
Lots of love and see you next time!

  1. 100% Agree, this is not hydrating at all, I’ve tried both foundations because I’m combo and they look incredibly heavy and cakey on me, this is slightly better but it’s still so heavy for me. I have the pictures of the matte one on my blog that are hilarious. I look like Yzma from “The Emperor’s New Groove” LOL

    1. It’s so sad because Fenty is kinda known for their foundations and extensive shade ranges and I’m just a bit disappointed. And ohnooo omg haha!

  2. This actually might work for me… I have combination skin and am very yellow. Like very yellow. Like a long lost distant cousin of the Simpsons yellow. Might give it a try eventually. Sorry it didn’t work for you!

  3. Wow! I was not expecting this from the review at all! I have been on the fence about this foundation and feel a bit less inclined to try it now. I recently picked up the NYX Born to Glow Foundation as a placeholder for the Fenty which I am still testing but have been pretty impressed by after a couple of uses!

    1. I was on the fence as well due to Rawbeautykristi’s review (we tend to like the same things, something I’ve noticed) but decided to take the plunge anyway. Don’t like it either. I’ll have to try the NYX one in the future! xx
