FENTY PRO FILT'R SOFT MATTE FOUNDATION VS KAT VON D LOCK IT FOUNDATION



I wanted to try the Fenty Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Foundation for the longest time since I love my full coverage foundation and since I picked up the Kat Von D Lock It Foundation last year in June. I thought it would be good to compare the two.

This foundation comes in a frosted glass bottle and has a pump applicator. It is available in 40 shades and claims to have a buildable medium to full coverage which gives your skin a smooth, pore diffused and shine-free finish. It has an oil-free formula and has climate adaptive technology that is humidity resistant, sweatproof and won't clog pores.  

Fenty Beauty is available in Harvey Nichols in the Uk, I picked mine up from Manchester and the makeup artist who coloured matched me was super lovely and I walked away with the shade 180 which is for light skin tones with warm undertones. Being Asian I do have more of a yellow/olive undertone and I much prefer my foundation that are not too orange. 

The foundation is more of a liquidy formula since as it says it is buildable, I use two pumps on a day to day basis and an extra little tiny pump to go over my blemishes such as hyperpigmentation and dark marks. When I apply my foundation I use one pump first and then another since the foundation dries quite fast. I do lightly powder especially on my t-zone since I have oily skin but if you have dry skin you probably don't need to because of the matte finish.

I find that it works well with all my other powders such as bronzer and blush and does not disturb the base at all. I have noticed that the foundation dries a tiny bit darker and if I apply a concealer beneath the foundation it became more orange so now I further conceal on top which doesn't change the colour.

This foundation gives my skin a very full flawless finish but in a healthy skin like way. I don't need to powder at all throughout the day since it controls my oils really well, I start looking glowy at 8-hour wear and the max I've worn this foundation will be 13 hours with it still looking almost perfect. With foundation, I find that it separates around the left side of my nose and this foundation does it the least. I am very impressed with the formula.


KAT VON D LOCK IT FOUNDATION £27

This foundation is available in 30 shades and claims to last for 24hours without touching up and is suitable for any skin tyPe. It is formulated with 21% pigment and is transfer resistant. The bottle features an innovative airless chamber design that prevents contamination and maintains it's consistency. It is also vegan-friendly and cruelty-free.

I picked up this foundation last year when Kat Von D launched in Debenhams and then I wasn't able to use it until now since I got super tanned. I had a perfect match and walked away with shadow 45 Light Warm last summer and I tried getting rematched when I came back of holiday but there was no success so I gave up after going back and forth 3 times. Right now I do find it a tiny bit light but when I bronze, everything blends better.

The consistency is very thick. I use one pump to cover my entire face and then a tiny little drop to cover my dark marks and hyperpigmentation. Application wise I much prefer using a sponge since the super matte finish can look drying and it does set really fast. I don't really need to powder because of the finish but I do under my eyes.

It claims to have a 24 hour wear time but I start getting oily on my nose and forehead area at the 6-hour mark and I do feel I need to blot since it gets super greasy. Foundation always creases around my nose and this once does it badly, I try pushing the foundation in but because it's settled it doesn't really budge. I've also tried spot concealing with a different brand concealer and it just takes off the foundation.

VERDICT

Overall I much prefer the Fenty over the Kat Von D because of the longevity, oil control and skinlike flawless finish that I achieve. The Kat Von D can become cakey if you use too much and having so much difficulty getting a shade match is annoying. They are similar money £26, for Fenty and £27 for Kat Von D. For an every day full coverage foundation I would recommend the Fenty.

Hope you found this review helpful! I also have Twitter Giveaway going on so don't forget to check that out!!

  4. I've recently switched to cruelty-free skincare products and been trying to find a foundation that's as good as Estee Lauder Double Wear. May try the Fenty Beauty foundation after giving this a read, thanks for the recommendation!
