Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation is claimed to be a long-wear foundation with medium-to-full coverage and matte finish. It retails for $34 USD ($42 CAD) and it's available in 40 shades.

Here's a demo and review of it. I also tested it out for 6 hours. I have combination/oily skin and for shade reference I'm in NC40-NC42 in MAC.

Product Claims
  • Medium-to-full Coverage
  • Oil-free
  • Lightweight
  • Longwearing 
  • Made with climate-adaptive technology that’s resistant to sweat and humidity
It's very pigmented and long wearing. It provides a great coverage but I personally don't like to build it up too much because it can easily end of looking cakey. It has a matte finish and it photographs well.  
I have oily t-zone and I was quite impressed at how I didn't look oily by end of the day. I've tested it out for 6 hours in this video but I've also tested it out for 8-10 hours and got very similar result. 
  • Finish: Matte 
  • Coverage: Medium to Full Coverage
  • Application: I prefer applying it with a brush first and then blending it with beautyblender. I do recommend using less product but it can easily end up looking cakey. It does set fast, so I'd recommend working in sections especially if you want to build up the coverage.
  • Shade: I got the shade 300, which matched me pretty well! It does oxidize a bit when you apply it but it didn't oxidize on me throughout the day.
  • Wear time: I tested it out for 6 hours in the video. I have oily t-zone but I noticed I didn't look oily by end of the day. I've also worn it at work a couple of times and the foundation looks great by end of the day.
