Who doesn’t love concealer?!! It’s the one beauty product we expect magic from yet when we find one we love we still keep trying more lol! Am I right? Fenty Concealer dropped and once again the beauty community freaked out because they released 50 shades! Yes you read that correctly. They released 50 shades! Best part about the shade range is they made it easy for you to find your shade because the concealer number matches your Fenty Beauty Foundation shade. However if you do not use the Fenty Foundation like myself its a bit overwhelming to be honest. Do not get me wrong I am not by any means complaining about the shade range. Brands being inclusive is very important to me and one of the reasons I love Fenty. I searched for swatches online and reviewed the shade descriptions like I was preparing for a thesis. Here are my results lol
FENTY CONCEALER SWATCHES:
As I reviewed the darker side of the light shades and the lighter side of the medium shades I wanted to try at least four that were on the more warm/neutral side as that is typically my shade with other brands. I grabbed shades 190, 210, 230 and 240.
Swatches Top To Bottom:
190: light to medium skin w/ warm undertones
210: light to medium skin w/ warm neutral undertones
230: light to medium skin w/ neutral undertones
240: medium skin w/ warm undertones
210 ended up being my shade match and I was a bit surprised as its more warm but I was convinced 230 would have been my match but its sooo much lighter than 210. 190 ended up being more of a closer match to me than 230 as it was close to 210. I spoke with fellow bloggers and they had the same issues with finding a match but 210 was my perfect match from these 4. Do I love it? Yes but no.
FENTY CONCEALER DETAILS:
- Long Wearing
- Crease Proof
- Soft Matte
- Full Coverage
- 50 Shades with multiple undertones
Its super creamy and blends beautifully into your skin however it dries down pretty matte. When something is too matte for me it sits on my skin and accentuates my lines and makes me look older. If you have been following me long enough you know I prefer for my makeup to sink into my skin and look natural. Do I think others loving this Fenty Concealer is crazy? Absolutely not! The coverage is very opaque and covers the dark circles. This is what we want in a concealer. But when it comes to the finish of a concealer its a preference. My personal preference is natural and or dewy. I used this a few times on very moisturized prepped skin and its looks absolutely beautiful but if my skin is not super hydrated/prepped it sits there instead of blending in. But dont mistake that for not blending well, because it blends wonderful and I only used the beauty blender for my applications.
NARS and MAC are my go to concealers that I use regularly. I wanted to take those out along with others in my collection in hopes to help you out there find your match if you are close to my skin tone. I consider myself Medium (sometimes a tad lighter) with neutral undertones. If you are interested in this concealer or already have the foundation and love it I highly suggest you trying it! There is a beautiful thing out there called returns. Please do not be shy to return makeup that turns out not being your color, or you dont like it or maybe you got a reaction from it! Most retailers here in the US accept returns on makeup no questions asked.
In the meantime if you are around the shades below I hope these swatches help you find your match! I would love to know your Holy Grail concealer(s) and if you are planning on trying this one!
