I have tried many setting powders from those with sebum control to sun protection. But admittedly, I only tried Korean-brand setting powders until this one. I love the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Foundation, so did I end up loving their setting powder too? Scroll down to read my Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder review to know my honest thoughts about this product.
Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Setting Powder is ONE OF THE BEST SETTING POWDERS I TRIED! It feels silky and melts on to my skin. It doesn't cake but flawless like some real-life photoshop. It also keeps my makeup longer despite having oily skin while living in a humid country.
Blurs the pores
Keeps your makeup last longer.
It doesn't cake, it melts on the skin so it looks natural.
It oxidizes. Better to swatch it before buying, or get one shade lighter than your actual skin tone if buying it online.
WHAT IS IT?
Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder is a superfine, insanely silky loose powder that sets and extends makeup wear, working all day to blur the look of pores, fines lines, and imperfections for a hyper-smooth filter.
It is said that Rihanna was obsessed with creating a setting powder for everyone that wouldn’t flash back, so Pro Filt’r was born in 8 sheer versatile shades to melt into your unique skin tone, letting you set, perfect, and brighten without a trace. And with its light-as-air blend of mattifying powders that won’t cake or settle, Pro Filt’r lets minimize shine while letting skin look like skin. So we can—for once—get matte, get even, and keep your photo-ready finish on lock.
As expected from Fenty Beauty, it has a sleek packaging that looks expensive. Well, their products aren’t exactly cheap so elegant-looking packaging is a must. The Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder comes in a puff and the holes in the cover are in “FB” pattern and it comes with a puff.
It has a scent that resembles their soft matte foundation mix with playdoh. I didn’t like it but I don’t hate it. I got used to it eventually.
I am going to say this now, Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powderis ONE OF THE BEST SETTING POWDERS I TRIED! It does really feel silky and melts on to my skin. It doesn’t cake. It looks exactly my natural skin. My skin looks so flawless like some real-life photoshop and it keeps my makeup longer despite having oily skin while living in a humid country.
However, if you’re going to buy their tinted shades, make sure to get those that are one shade lighter than your actual skin tone. Because they tend to get darker. Like their foundation, these setting powders also oxidizes. I always get the “Honey” shades in Maybelline, L’Oreal, and other western brands, but Fenty Beauty’s version of honey shade too dark and orange for my actual skin tone. I wish I just bought the Lavander or Butter shade instead.
