Fenty Beauty Liquid Foundation First Impression

BadGalRiRi has recently introduced her own make up line called Fenty Beauty. The liquid foundation boasting 40 shades at launch. The thing is, Fenty Beauty is only available at Sephora online in the Philippines so selecting the right shade is quite a challenge. The liquid foundation retails for PHP1950 so better select the right shade the first time.
It comes in a gray/black gradient box.

Medium to Full coverage for all. Longwear. Light as air.

Ingredients. No Parabens. Has Talc. No SPF indicated.

Shade: 260 Medium Neutral
They have an app like shade matcher. Just input the shade you usually use in a foundation and they will give a shade match for Fenty Beauty. I usually use Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream no. 27 and my shade match is 350 Tan Neutral. For your reference I'm NC40 in MAC. But do keep in mind that foundations oxidize if you're acidic so get one shade lighter than your skin. Why 260? I just borrowed it from a friend 😜

I thought it would be too light for me because my friend is alot fairer than me but it turned out okay.

I applied it around 2pm. I used a beauty blender to apply to give a little moisture as it has a reputation for drying too quickly and being dry. I have oily t-zones but dry areas around the mouth so I was expecting it to highlight dry patches but it didn't though it feels a bit tight. I didn't use any primers to test longevity. It does dry quickly so you have to blend it real fast. It feels lightweight and a little goes a long way. It has a medium coverage.

I already feel oily but trying to resist blotting. I already felt oily around 8pm so it lasted for a good 4hours.

yup very much oily. 

but it's still intact after blotting hell even my lipstick was still intact (Nyx Lip Lingerie in Exotic) without retouching. Parang natutulog lang. 😂

Will I buy one for myself? Nope. It's too expensive and I end up getting oily anyway so i'll stick to my good old bb cream with spf. 

Pros: Coverage is good and it's lightweight. Stays all day even after blotting. 
Cons: Expensive, dries too quickly, feels tight on dry areas. Probably not for people with dry skin.
