Pretty Little Thing Try On Haul 2019

Here's a quick Pretty Little Thing haul. I did some shopping for fall and since it was my first time ordering online from there, I got a few items to see how the size is. For reference, I'm 5'3" and I usually wear small or US 4-6 (UK 8-10). As for shipping, I got the package within a week (I live in Montreal, Canada) and I didn't pay any custom fees.

Make Up For Ever Ultra UD Foundation Review

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation retails for $55CAD ($43 USD) and contains
1.08oz (32 mL) of product. It comes with a pump. It's claimed to provide undetectable medium coverage and a blurred, second-skin finish for up to 24 hours. 
Check out my video for my review (demo and 5-hour wear-test) of Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation using the shade Y412  -Bronze Beige but I also swatched 8 other shades I own.

________________
Shades
Make Up For Ever recently added new shades and this foundation is now available in 50 shades. The shade I Before this, I found Y415 - Almond to be the closest match for my skin tone but after trying this, I personally prefer Y412 - Bronze Beige on me. For shade reference I'm in NC40 in MAC. Click here to check out my shade reference post of the shades including MAC Conversion rate for some of the shades.

________________ 
Wear Test
I tested it for 5 hours in this video and noticed my skin looked oily. I have combination skin, so my T-zone does get oily throughout the day but I find that I got a bit more oily with this one compared to other foundations.  

Overall, this is one of my favorite foundations because it looks great on camera. I usually use this on days where I have a photoshoot or if I'm filming. It's also a foundation I reach out for when I have an event to attend to and I know I will be taking photos/videos. Now I do get oily throughout the day, so I definitely do need to blot even after 4 hours. That's the only downside to this foundation but I don't mind and it's still my favorite.
  • Finish: Natural
  • Coverage: Medium to Full 
  • Skin Type: Normal, Combination, and Oily
Here's a photo with flash with full face of makeup.

Fenty Pro Filt'r Hydrating Longwear Foundation Review

Check out my video of Fenty Pro Filt'r Hydrating Longwear Foundation for demo, wear test and comparison with Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation.

Each foundation retails for $45 CAD ($35 USD) and contains 1.08oz (32 mL) of product. It's available in 50 shades. Click here to check out my shade reference post of the first 40 shades launched.
As for packaging, Hydrating version comes in a tube, whereas the Soft Matte one comes in a glass bottle. I'm glad theres's a pump for each one. 
Aside from packaging, what also differs is the formula. Although they're both claimed to be longwearing foundations, they don't have the same coverage or finish.

  • Hydrating
    • Finish: Natural
    • Coverage: Medium
    • Skin Type: Normal to dry skin


  • Soft Matte
    • Finish: Matte
    • Coverage: Medium to Full 
    • Skin Type: Normal, Combination, and Oily
Here's a photo with flash with foundation only as face makeup. The Hydrating one doesn't cover as well as Soft Matte foundation.
