Available in 40 shades, Fenty's foundation is both ground-breaking in its inclusiveness and genuinely effective in its coverage.

"It's velvety-smooth but not too mattifying, and it basically blurs out every line or blemish for a truly filter-like effect. As I applied it, I couldn't believe how quickly it turned my skin into a flawless canvas."
