HUDA BEAUTY #FauxFilter Foundation Review

23 october 2018, 11:30

HUDA BEAUTY #FauxFilter Foundation is a relatively new product. It was released not so long ago and I am going to review it. I will tell you how to apply it to last longer and how to get maximum out of this foundation.

The product comes in a nice slick plastic bottle with a plastic pump. The good thing is that the bottle is difficult to break. Plastic bottles are usually much more durable. You can throw it into your bag and you may be 100% sure that it will not break.

The bottle has 35 mil or 1.18 ounces and it costs $40 which is a lot. Such a price is very high for a foundation.

It comes in 30 different colors and you will be able to pick the tone that matches your skin. A very important thing that you must know is that this foundation has a very light first shade. If you buy Milkshake 100B which is the lightest one you may be surprised with how light it is.

How to apply?

If you want your Faux Filter Foundation to last longer you need to prepare your face first. You can use HUDA BEAUTY The Complexion Perfection — Pre-makeup Base Primer for this. It will moisturize your skin and will add some stickiness which will allow to the foundation to last longer.

I have tested this Pre-makeup Base Primer and to be honest I am not impressed with how it works. I just decided to take it for this review because it’s also made by HUDA BEAUTY. But we all have different skin and you may like the effect.

The next thing you may need is a Buff Blend Brush which is specially designed for using with the foundation. Some prefer to use the brush while others may not. I am not a fan of brushes and I don’t usually use them. But this brush is really good. It feels very soft but at the same time, it’s dense.

You may also use a sponge instead of a brush. I am going to take the sponge for this review. The foundation can be used with both sponges and brushes.

Now it’s time for the primer. I am not going to advice you the primer because it’s a very big topic. Just use the primer you like the most.

Usage Experience

After you apply Faux Filter Foundation you will see that it looks very good. It covers the face with a nice tone. It’s a little bit matte and it makes the pores look smaller. In general, it looks and feels amazing. In my opinion, this thing is for full face coverage. If you don’t like full coverage this isn’t for you.

After this, you may apply any concealers, highlighters, bronzers and other stuff. The foundation doesn’t move and sits perfectly. There are no any wholes or any other marks.

How long does it last? As for me I find Faux Filter Foundation pretty stable. If you apply it in the morning it will still look amazing at the end of the day even if you don’t powder at all. Of course it will not look as amazing as in the beginning, but the difference is very small. It’s almost unnoticeable.

I find this foundation great because it allows me to powder much less. Many foundations force me to apply powder every 3 or 4 hours, while this requires powdering about after 6 hours of use.


The HUDA BEAUTY #FauxFilter Foundation is a very good product. I like it a lot and I give it 5 stars. It is easy to apply, it is easy to use with different concealers, bronzers and so on, it sits perfectly and it doesn’t require powdering too much. The only disadvantage is the price, but you really get what you pay for. It’s expensive but it is amazing.
