Huda Beauty Faux Filter Foundation
Hey my loves,
Just getting straight to the point regarding the faux filter foundation by Huda Beauty. Now we all know that there is a huge fan following here in the U.K for this makeup mogul. So when she launched the foundation after almost months of teasing her followers, I knew getting a shade matched would be difficult since it was bound to sell out.
I finally got my hands on 400 G Macchiato but what I truly wanted was 410 G , brown sugar. That was obviously sold out as soon as it launched. Plus decoding the shade chart online was quiet a task.
What I liked
Lets begin with the packaging. Huda beauty always steps up when it comes to providing a good looking product that is pleasing to the eye. Her liquid lipstick packaging are absolutely amazing.
The foundation comes in a plastic bottle with a built in pump. One would assume that the inner packaging is cheap but considering how travel friendly it is since its plastic, you would make your peace with it.
Now this foundation texture is super thick and full coverage. A little goes a long way and that ensures this product will last you a long time. I also noticed this foundation makes a great concealer to cover up spots, imperfections and blemishes.
Once applied, it does oxidise a bit and after it settles down to a matte finish, it does leave a beautiful filtered look for a while and especially for pictures. Plus, no flashback.
What I disliked
After a few hours, it does sit heavy on my skin since it isn’t a light weight foundation. I also noticed if you have an extremely dry skin, this foundation will latch on to the dry areas because of how it has a tendency to dry down to a matte powder finish.
I would suggest a good hydrating primer to pair it with this foundation. If you are ok with the strong oud fragrance in her primer, you can buy that as well.Now, the strong fragrance in the foundation can put many off as it lingers on for hours.
I would suggest sensitive skin to stay away from the product because of that. I also think it is quiet expensive for a foundation and after a couple of hours, I noticed my t zone area getting a bit oily and it even enhanced my pores even more. Quiet strange since the finish of it is matte.
My final thoughts
If you are ok with the strong fragrance attached to this product and you are looking for a full coverage foundation, then look no further. If you are stuck with a foundation that is a bit lighter than you skin tone then please take my suggestion and use it as a concealer. It works best when paired with another foundation on top.
In my opinion, the combination of fenty pro filt’r and Huda faux filter works beautifully.
