Promising review: "Just looks like lovely skin! Not overly dewy and doesn't settle in any lines. It applies great with brush or sponge. Good medium coverage for me but I can definitely build it up. Really one of the best foundations I've found for my dry skin. " —Sharonie
2. Fenty Pro Filt'r Hydrating Longwear Foundation has grapeseed oil, a super hydrating ingredient that'll banish your tight, dry, skin for the long haul. It's got a natural, not dewy, medium to full-coverage finish and comes in 40 signature colors.
Promising review: I've been using Fenty products for a year and a half now and I loved the original foundation but I always had to really hydrate my face before putting it on since I have SUPER dry skin. So when this product came out I was so excited to try. I have to say it is the ONLY foundation I use and I do not intend on changing that. It has great coverage, but doesn't dry out my skin and never looks cakey. The tone completely matches my skin and I love how Fenty has always tailored to different undertones as it makes the blending seamless. Even though I don't wear makeup every day, I do wear it several times a week and one product lasts me a few months which I just ADORE. Love, love, love, this product and cannot stress that enough! —MADDIEMOX23
