FENTY BEAUTY Pro Filt'r Concealer in 190 Review

May 20, 2019
If I had to choose my top 3 must have make up products, concealers are definitely one of them.
When Fenty Beauty first released its concealer, I had to try it! 
PACKAGING(5)
The packaging is so nice and minimalistic. It has a matte finish that feels great in the hand. I love how the top clicks into place, too. It is really sturdy and won't leak nor be easily undone in your bag.

APPLICATION/FORMULA (4)
It has a doe foot applicator, but it's flat on both sides - like a triangular shape.

It's easy to apply but a little goes a long way. I would say the consistency is on the thicker side for a liquid concealer. If you have dry to normal skin type, I highly recommend to use eye cream first. Be sure the area is really moisturized so it won't appear patchy when applied. Another tip I recommend is to use a damp beauty blender - be sure it is definitely damp. If it's just slightly dampen, it may be a bit tougher to blend into skin. Once it's there it won't budge. I sometime like to use it to conceal spots and blemishes.

Minimal edits to photos - slightly brightened and removed a couple of blemishes
COLOR MATCH(4)
I am not sure if I was matched correctly. I had a Sephora employee help me and she asked if I want it to match my skin or be brightening. I said brightening because my dark circles are pretty dark. She recommended the shade 190 for me. As you can see in the comparison photos above, it does a decent job concealing my dark circles. It is definitely not concealed completely since I used a light layer and because I would need to color correct it first to cover up the purplish hue. This is typical for me for any concealer so it's not a huge con. 

Not wearing any foundation and used skin smooth tool and brighten photos. No color corrections done.
OVERALL(4)
It is a pretty good concealer, but it's not my go-to. Mainly because it's a thicker consistency which makes it a bit tougher to blend for my dry skin. It has buildable coverage so start with a little and build up if needed. For me personally, I rarely use it alone for my dark circles. I would used the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer in Neutralizer in conjunction with this one. The finish is not my favorite because it dries matte or that of a powder-like finish. Sometimes it can emphasize the creases under my eyes so I tend to focus it on the bottom area of my dark circles and away from the lash line and inner corner of my eyes. In photos, it looks really good. It does look almost like a filter for your dark circles. I think this would be a better concealer for oily skin types, but it's workable for dry skin types, too.
