Fenty Beauty foundation review

At 26 years old, I finally had my first colour match and I ask, why on earth did it take me so long?
I've never been the go-to girl when it comes to make-up, I either always had an orange smear across my neckline, or relied on my mums 80's collection of make-up to see me through my teens.
So make-up has never been my strong point, and I suppose I'm pretty much still a beginner in that sense, so when Rhianna released over 40 shades of foundation, I thought it was about time I stepped up my game.

I'm pretty content with a £12 bottle of foundation, because lets be honest, when do foundation brands match mixed race skin tones? It has always been a huge issue for me, and sitting down on a counter getting someone to match my awkward skin has been on my avoid list of years. 
I mean, who wants to pretend to have small talk about a foundation shade you know doesn't match your skin, and then you're up-sold 20 million other items, fully knowing that you're not going to use a single one.

Urghhh, make-up counters can be the devil in disguise.
I wish at the same time I could take that back, but getting colour matched for Fenty Beauty was a nightmare all on its own. It definitely wasn't an in-and-out job, but, that being said I've got my perfect match and I don't think I'm going to look back.
I'm £26 lighter, but has it been worth it?

YES! A million times over.

Unlike a lot of other foundations, Fenty Beauty is light on the skin, it dries quickly and doesn't leave that sticky feeling that is often left by cheaper alternatives.
However, because of it's quick dry action, it isn't suitable for beauty blenders and I've had to dig out those loyal old brushes, but it seems to have done the trick.
It gives around 12 hours wear, and only requires a very light touch-up then after. So as my now go-to foundation I'm ready to venture into the Fenty Beauty collection and see what else can suit this mixed race girl.

Oh, I'm shade 250, and it's an absolute beauty. Have you tried Fenty Beauty yet?

Ooooh I've not had a nosy at the collection yet. I don't wear foundation but I'm seriously down for looking at the highlighters! xx

I'm not really a fountain gal but I have heard so much about Rhi's brand and especiallyyy about this foundation that I'm thinking I might treat myself to it. Just worried that I won't be able to go back to a life without foundation after it! So glad you've finally found your perfect match!
