Huda Beauty Faux Filter Foundation First Impressions

Mamacitas,

I bought the infamous Huda Beauty Faux Filter Foundation today! I wasn’t planning to, but it was in stock finally (my shade) and jumped in and bought it. I’m so excited because there are bi-polar reviews on this product, and so many people compare this with Fenty Beauty Pro-Filter Foundation too. ( I don’t have Fenty Foundation, so I can’t do a comparison. I think I have enough foundations in my stash for now!)

My shade is: Tres Leches

Price: Sephora US$ 40.00 and weirdly on Huda’s website US$ 50.00 (I don’t know why there’s a US$10.00 difference!)

I got this for LKR 7750.00 from Cosmic Pop (a popular Instagram page that brings down makeup in Sri Lanka)

Packaging: Comes in a plastic bottle (love that it’s plastic because it’s travel friendly!) AND a pump (yay for that too, because I hate when these high-end foundations don’t have pumps and we have spend extra money to buy a pump!) Inside the box there was a sample of her Complexion Perfection Pre-Makeup Base.

Scent: If you watched my Instagram stories you saw that I didn’t feel the scent at first (I apologize for that, but I was being completely honest hehe) I think it was because I washed my beauty blender with baby soap so that scent overpowered Huda’s scent. Anyway, after about 5 minutes I got the whiff of the scent, and yeah, I agree with everyone that the scent is powerful. It’s floral, but it’s a bit too much. It did fade away in another few minutes though.

Shade: She came with 30 shades ranging from very porcelain to deep dark ebony, which is great for a launch! It’s also a bit overwhelming to pick a shade when there’s so many hehe. I picked Tres Leches (sold out for so long!) and it is a warm medium shade with heavy golden undertone. I compared it with 4 other foundations I use (you will notice some are very light and some are quite dark) I can pull off all these shades though, weirdly. I think my skin tone changes everyday!

But in a glance you can say that Tres Leches suits me the best, right?

Coverage: Huda claims this is full-coverage and I agree. I used a beauty blender (I always use a BB for full coverage products) I applied it as thinly as possible, and my skin looks so flawless, yet skin-like with a demi-matte finish. I also added more under my eyes as a concealer, and boy! It works as a concealer too! And I have VERY dark circles that I MUST colour correct, but I put only a bit extra of this foundation. It covered beautifully. Well done, Huda!

Finish: As I said earlier, it has a demi-matte finish that I love. I can definitely make it dewy with some Fix Plus. I like the fact that it’s neither too matte nor dewy so we can control it. For Sri Lankans and Indians (or anyone who lives in the tropics) I recommend going with a very light application because of the heat and humidity. It doesn’t feel very heavy.

Does it oxidize? No.

Was the shade too yellow? I teeny bit, but then I have golden undertones in my skin so it worked perfect with my usual bronzer, highlighter, etc…

Overall thoughts: I love this foundation. Will wear it everyday and update you soon!

See you soon,

Xx

  5. So glad you liked it! And you look beautiful! I’ve heard mixed reviews on it, but also that it is a very full-coverage foundation which is why I won’t be trying it. I am more of a tinted moisturizer type of person. I do like Huda and how much dedication she puts in her work.
