Now when it comes to the Foundation wear itself, I have a combination to oily skin type I'm not gonna lie its one of my favorite foundation the coverage is more light to medium and I'm not really mad at it cause looking at it I don't think it was meant to be a full coverage foundation Rihanna always rocking that natural look, you can built it up if you want to but in my opinion it doesn't look good when you packed the whole damn bottle on. Second this foundation dries very fast so you do have to work fast or used a damped beauty blender to get the best result.
My first time wearing this foundation I love it it look beautiful natural went to my friend house she could barely tell, fast forward to the end of the day I absolutely look like I took an oil bath I know everyone tend to get oily throughout their day but wearing this foundation without setting it doesn't actually help. The formula is great, the coverage I get is great I don't have a problem with it but if you do have oily skin and you want this foundation I would recommend you set your face with a setting powder or even use the blotting sheets she also carry from her line.
I would definitely recommend this foundation.
•shade range is INSANE. Fenty officially raises the bar and made other brands go back and relaunch their foundations and concealers in more shades because of the range Fenty had from jump street!!!
•the packaging is sleek, chic and beautiful.
•it has good coverage and is buildable and blends out smoothly.
• feels light on the skin
• it’s by Rhianna...and who the eff doesn’t just love her? You know she put her heart and soul into developing the entire line so you know that it’s gonna be GOOD.
•price. It’s not THAT expensive..most higher end foundations can go from $40-$85..so $34 isn’t that bad but it’s not “affordable” either.
•it’s not that good for dry skin...although, I have dry skin in areas..when I use my Fenty 130, I exfoliate a lil extra before hand, and make sure to MOISTURIZE!!!! Also using a silicone or moisturizing primer helps a lot too...
•doesn’t seem to wear ALL day. Like I put it on at 10am...by 4pm I could use a real retouch.
•OXIDATION. I was color matched in Sephora (Obvi I went there bare faced with the mission of being matched and buying a foundation) and after application it looked much more yellow then it does in bottle and at first pump.
Fenty as a whole is a wonderful brand and make some amazing products...and I love the foundation. I was hoping it would be my holy grail cause that is what I was looking for when I bought it...but alas I am still on the hunt. The struggle is real! However, the foundation is worth the hype and I think just the shade range alone makes this a top contender.

This foundation upon application is difficult for me to build up without it "picking up" and starting to get patchy, I have tried using different brushes, sponges, you name it and nothing works. To me, this is definitely medium coverage. I have also tried this foundation with many different serums, moisturizers, primers, and even the Fenty primer, but my skin always looks so dry and textured when I wear this. I'm almost 25 and lean more towards the oily side, so I can't imagine how this must work for drier or more mature skin types if this happens to me. Lastly, this just does not stay on my skin more than a few hours and I don't tend to have major issues with wear.
Onto the positives:
the shade range is amazing! Thank you, RiRi for making a brand for everyone! Shade 100 is a great match for me and I absolutely love the undertone, it is perfect for me. I have also found that this is pretty decent to mix with other foundations. Fenty + Wet N Wild photo focus foundation make an amazing combination, which is odd considering I don't like either of those foundations as standalone products, go figure!
All in all, I realize that I might just have issues with this because of my skin type. It just doesn't work for me and I wanted to give this an honest and fair review for anyone else who might have a similar skin type.
Pros: Nice packaging. Feels heavy and expensive. IMPRESSIVE shade range. Long-lasting. Watery, weightless formula; doesn’t get cakey.
Cons: Coverage is disappointing. A lot of people said it was a buildable medium-full coverage, but I’d say it’s a pretty solid medium coverage. I have acne, and I’m always looking for a foundation that’s going to conceal my spots... but this foundation didn’t do the trick. Also, this foundation clung to EVERY dry patch.
In fact, it revealed dry patches I didn’t even know were there. When they say this foundation is a matte finish, they do mean MATTE. You don’t even have to set this one with powder. Oh, and blend it in right away! It sets quickly.
I have acne-prone, combination skin, basically I get random dry patches, yet my skin is consistently oily around the T-zone area. When I seen the shade range, I knew I HAD to have this foundation, no matter the price. I’m extremely pale, and I’ve always struggled with finding a shade that doesn’t eventually turn me Trump orange. You don’t have to worry about finding your perfect shade with this line; you WILL find it.
I can’t recommend this foundation. I REALLY wanted to love it, and I admire how inclusive the shade range is. This is the first I’ve purchased a foundation that was way too light for me, which is why I decided to give it three stars regardless. It just wasn’t what I was looking for. 🤷🏼♀️
I’ve heard/read/seen all the hype about this foundation. Lemme tell you I was skeptical. So I went to Sephora and they hooked me up with a sample after matching me. Naturally my shade (140) was out but I had my sample and I went on my way. I’ve been using this for 2 weeks now and I have some feelings.
I f******* love this foundation. It is a blessing. IT ACTUALLY MATCHES MY SKINTONE FLAWLESSLY. Ok? I don’t even need to blend it down my neck it is THAT perfect. It doesn’t make me look orange and I am so grateful for that. My one complaint is that it dries quickly but it legit dries to an almost powdery finish and it is a beautiful sight. I “contour” (idk how to contour but I have a kit and I try my hardest) with a powder so it works great with this. My blush and highlight are also powder and lemme tell you...after 9 hours of working & commuting I get home and it’s allllll still right where I put it on in the morning. The stay power is incredible. What about my progressive oily spots? They don’t exist anymore...those shine spots don’t gradually appear throughout the day...my skin stays looking like a beautiful matte piece of art. Also those troubled acne areas? They’re covered, they stay covered, & the weird flaky ones are less noticeable for sure.
I first apply the Fenty primer, then I apply my 140 with a foundation brush, and thennnn I buff/blend it in with my beauty blender. I don’t have to use setting spray or powder with this it just stays and slays. Since we’re all beautiful & unique here’s my advice:: head to Sephora, get a few swatches on your cheek/neck (wherever they put it on you to match it) & walk around for a bit because it does oxidize & slighty change color. ((When I first applied it completely my initial thought was “NO NO NO THIS IS NOT IT” but then it transformed.)) Then check which swatch you think looks best & get yourself a sample to make sure you like it! A little bit goes a loooong way. My sample lasted over a week but halfway through I went on the fenty website and ordered it. I highly highly recommend giving this a shot!
