The Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer described as a lightweight, creamy liquid concealer with a buildable medium to full, crease-proof coverage for brightening under eyes and concealing dark spots and blemishes. For today’s post, I’m going to show and review two shades of this concealer.
The Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer comes in a frosted glass tube with white details, containing 8 mL of product. It basically looks like a smaller, thinner version of the foundation (review here), looking beautifully minimalistic and luxurious. Opening the tube reveals an elongated doe-foot applicator that bends with slight pressure.
The Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer is available in a whopping 50 shades. These concealer shades do not match with the foundation, but instead are complimenting to the foundation shades. I actually have two of the same concealer and foundation shade numbers, which are swatched above and described as follows:
240 Foundation – Medium Skin with Warm Yellow Undertones
240 Concealer – Medium Skin with Neutral Undertones
300 Foundation – Medium to Tan Skin with Warm Undertones
300 Concealer – Medium to Tan Skin with Warm Undertones
Like the foundation (review here), the concealer has a soft matte finish. The shade difference in 240 is minimal and even though 300 has the same description, the shades of the foundation and concealer are very different, a bit too much for my taste.
Here is a before (Pro Filt’r Foundation in 300) and after using the Pro Filt’r Concealer in 300, applied with a beauty sponge on my eye area. I think that the concealer applies beautifully however it is like I expected, way too light and brightening for my taste. I don’t see how these two products are complimentary to each other, especially if you look at the shade 240. The coverage is medium to full, I can still see a bit of my dark circles peeking through the concealer but it is still buildable to full if needed.
I’ve applied the rest of my make-up and set the Pro Filt’r Concealer with a powder that I regularly use. It does seem a bit dry looking using these products together. I also still can’t get over the shade combination, I think the concealer looks way too yellow combined with the foundation. I did try to use this concealer different foundations, which made it look more complimenting.
Here is a before (initial make-up application) and after wearing the make-up for 9 hours. I went to an event that day which was quite warm and humid. I became oily on some areas and the foundation faded slightly, but the concealer didn’t budge. It basically looks the same, which looks kind of weird compared to the rest of my make-up because of how matte it is. I can clearly see a line where the foundation starts and ends.
I do like how the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer wears overall. It has a beautiful coverage, is long-lasting and looks natural on its own but can look dry on a dry skin type when you try to set it. I’ve tried it with other powders and lightly setting, which makes it look much less matte on my skin.
In my opinion, I think that the complimentary foundation to concealer shades are a bit off, so I wouldn’t assume immediately that you should get the concealer with the same number as your foundation.
I think this concealer is better suitable for a normal to oily skin type however, it can look great on dry skin as well if you use hydrating products with some light setting.
