Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Concealer





I love writing beauty reviews and it takes a lot for me to get really excited about a new base product. I've wanted to try lots of makeup from Fenty Beauty and after loving a highlighter and primer from the range, I decided to treat myself to their latest beauty launch the concealer. The pro filt'r instant retouch concealer is what I have needed in my life for a while. I still always look for high coverage concealers as it was what I needed since the first day that I started wearing makeup due to my acne. However, I am a very lucky that I only get the occasional spot nowadays and I don't know what but my under eye circles have taken a turn for the worse. I mean I am always tired, but I literally look tired even on a day when I don't particularly feel it.

I had read a few reviews before making the purchase and everyone only praised it. I only spend my money on products which I really want these days, and I really wanted this. It is not cheap, I took a little gasp at the price especially when putting my pin into the card machine. However, I wanted it so it was a payday treat. I managed to justify this by saying to myself that my concealers were running low which they are.

I have loved the ethos behind Rihanna's Fenty Beauty, she recognised a big gap in the market for beauty lovers with all skin tones. There is no denying that the beauty industry needed a shake up, and Rihanna stepped forward and took it upon herself to create a beauty line where any person could go into a store and could find a shade which matched their skin. How many times have we had to mix two shades together to try and find a shade which could possibly resemble our skin tone out of a line of six shades on offer? In this concealer range there are fifty shades, yes fifty. I am not being funny but this line in what makeup is about, everyone enjoying it and feeling amazing wearing it.

The actual concealer itself is what you all came here to read about. I am very happy to say that it is perfect. I bought this six or seven weeks ago and have been using it on a regular basis. I have tried many concealers but in order to get full coverage the formula is using very thick which makes complete sense. However, this is a breath of fresh air as it is very creamy and light. It does have a slightly more matte than glow finish but it works incredibly well. It is not too matte and still has a light luminosity throughout it. I put on one layer which creates a medium-full finish and then let it dry. I have tested going in with a second layer and does produce a perfect full coverage finish.

The main aspect which gives it the wow factor is its brightening factor. Like I say I have found concealers which do the covering part of the job, but this adds an instant light around the under eye area which is where it has been mainly tested. After application it instantly adds a lift to my face. I always look in the mirror every time I apply it to try and put my finger on exactly what makes it so special, but I think it is a mixture of having everything which I am looking for. A big aspect is definitely the slight glow. It is also the light formula which is not too heavy meaning it doesn't crease easily.

I have the shade 160 which is a really great match for my skin. I would say my skin is light with a slightly pink-neutral undertone. I went to Harvey Nichols to buy this, and the assistant was incredibly helpful when matching it to my skin. They advise to use the Fenty concealer brush for application, but it costs £19. At the time I felt as though as I already have a good range of brushes and sponges at home to the job. I have been using my trusty Beautyblender to apply this. I like to get it really wet so it expands and then give it a really good squeeze, and then bounce the product into my skin.

 I also like the shape of the applicator on the concealer wand. It works really well at getting into the inner corner of your eye, and it is nice and flat if you want to do create the classic triangle underneath your eyes.

I think it is always good to include comparisons to other similar products. If you like the Nars creamy concealer I think you would like this. Out of the two I prefer this one as I tried the Nars one a few years back and I didn't repurchase it, as I just did not fall in love with it. I did really enjoy using it, and they both have similar creamy and light consistencies. However, I have just really loved how the Fenty concealer looks on my skin. I feel as though I can recommend this to others and feel pretty confident that they will be impressed.

If I haven't already justified this purchase enough, then this might just do it for you. When I am doing any beauty reviews I always look at how many mls I am getting for my money worth. When I saw that this Fenty Beauty concealer contains 8ml (0.27fl.oz), my eyes instantly popped out of my head. I headed straight for my makeup drawers and had a good rummage within my other concealers. I discovered that my NYX, Makeup Revolution and Sephora concealers all contained 3.4ml (0.11fl.oz), which is less than half compared to this Fenty one. So really for 3.4ml it is costing less than £9 for the same amount. Some have much bulkier packaging making you think that you are getting a lot of product for your money. 8ml is the most I have ever seen in a concealer, so hopefully it was a last me a long time before needing to repurchase.
