Two things I love when it comes to makeup? A great makeup sponge and Fenty Beauty.
Okay, so obviously there are more things I love when it comes to the world of beauty, but when I saw that Fenty Beauty released a setting powder, as well as a sponge, I just had to get my hands on them.
If you love their Pro Filt’r foundation and concealer, then you need the Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder (C$40) to round out your collection. This powder, available in eight shades, is a superfine, lightweight, and loose setting powder that helps to set your makeup and extend its wear for a photo-ready look. This powder, which works the same way similar ones do, is housed in a beautiful jar with the Fenty Beauty logo which enables you to access the powder. It also comes with a plastic cover so the stuff doesn’t get everywhere (we’ve all been there).
I received the shade Banana, which is for light to tan skin tones, perfect for brightening. Apply this powder over top of your concealer and underneath your contour for a sculpted look. The product helps to reduce shine and blur the look of pores, fine lines, and any imperfections in your skin. It sets really nice and doesn’t look cakey at all, which is a major plus when it comes to setting powders.
Fenty Beauty has a dedicated brush to apply this with, the Powder Puff Setting Brush (C$42), however, I recommend using the Precision Makeup Sponge 100 instead to pat the powder into your skin. This sponge works the same way as other similar ones out there, in that you have to wet it first to bounce the product into your skin. What makes it unique is the shape, as it features three sides, a slanted edge for controlled stippling, the mini-moon edge for targeted coverage, and the rounded edge for all-over buffing. It is also designed without latex, allowing you to apply and blend all formulas.
I really love this sponge as it is very bouncy when wet (this is an actual thing, I’ve tried so many sponges that feel stiff even when they are damp), and the shape really helps to customize your makeup process. I use these sponges for everything — foundation, concealer, and powder, so it’s truly a triple whammy. It’s also only C$20, which is six dollar cheaper than the original Beauty Blender (truth be told though, I do like the Fenty sponge more because of the shape).
Even if you don’t have any of the Fenty Beauty face products, I do recommend picking up this sponge as it does a wonderful job of blending your makeup.
So two rave reviews on some new Fenty Beauty products, would you expect anything different from me? This line constantly impresses me with every product they put out and because of that I get so excited when I see there is something new in the line. I mean, I basically know I’m going to love it even before I try it out.
Have you tried Fenty Beauty’s face products?
Please note, I received this product from PR. All opinions are my own.
