Hey guys, I hope all is well! I got new Fenty Beauty! I picked up two shades of the new Instant Retouch Concealers and the new setting powder last week and I thought to do some swatches to help anyone who may need it! I didn’t get to swatch them so I went with the Fenty swatches they provided and videos I watched. They also make it very easy to pick your concealer shade as they are the same numbers as your foundation just a tad bit lighter. I am 430 in the foundation so I decided to go from there and pick a lighter shade to highlight with so I also got 400. I thought I did pretty well however 400 and 430 look VERY similar with only a slight difference in undertone so I think I could have gone with 390 even. I still really like these two shades.
I have swatched my concealers with 5 popular drugstore and high-end concealers to hopefully help guide your decision. If you have any of these concealers and in the same shades, hopefully, my swatches will help guide if you should go higher or lower or perhaps go with the shades I have too if you’re happy with them. If you’re still in doubt and can’t get to the store, you can always start from your foundation shade (if you have the foundation) and go up. The swatches from Fenty are pretty true to colour too. Now that I am looking back at my swatches, it looks like the Fenty concealers dry a little darker, hmm I will have a more in-depth review after I have a better handle on how they wear.
The undertones of the shades are quite similar except for Fawn which is very yellow/golden and Revolution’s Conceal & Define in C13 which has more neutral in it.
Again similar undertones except for the Bobbi Brown which is very golden.
I hope this helps guys. I have my foundation shades and comparisons below in case you also have any of these foundations. Catch you later.
