This Fenty Concealer Is Rihanna’s Favorite: But is it mine?
Inside Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty makeup line, there are a few products labelled as Rihanna’s Faves. These include her award winning Gloss Bomb, her Fenty Foundation, and her best selling Instant Retouch Setting Powder. But there’s another favorite, it’s her Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer. Available in 50 shades, this concealer is just as inclusive as her foundation. This product easily blends for a smooth, crease proof finish. When I tested a full face of Fenty Beauty products, I got the inside scoop as to what makes this concealer so special. Keep reading to find out more!
Promises vs. Performance: Why this concealer is one of Rihanna’s faves.
Because this Fenty concealer is one of Rihanna’s favorites, my expectations were high. I first tried out shade 140, which was quite yellow for my skin tone. However, I mixed it with the lighter shade 170 and was pleased with the color match. It’s a very blendable and buildable formula! Then, to brighten my face, I added the product around my mouth, and it worked beautifully as a highlighter, too. It went onto my face so well that I almost didn’t use setting powder.
Fenty claims that their medium to full coverage concealer is creamy, light as air, and crease proof. It’s a thick consistency, but it’s extremely easy to blend. For me, this product lasted all day with minimal creases and budges. However, I found it to be more of a light to medium coverage, based on the amount of product used. Overall, I can tell why this is a Rihanna favorite.

How It Compares: Is Fenty concealer the best concealer?
Besides claims about coverage, the Fenty concealer lives up to its promises. It’s blendable, long lasting, and doesn’t crease. But it’s also got some tough competition. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer has so many benefits that make it an industry standard. It color corrects while hydrating skin. It covers dark circles with minimal product. And, it doesn’t crease or feel heavy on skin. With ingredients like vitamin E, grape seed, and magnolia bark extracts, it improves the look of skin over time. I could go on and on about this product (and I have here)!
Though, I gotta give Fenty props for their inclusivity. Many of their products feature huge shade ranges, including this concealer that comes in 50 shades! If NARS doesn’t have a match for you, this one should.
Fenty Beauty Concealer is beautiful. But you just can’t beat the added hydration in the NARS formula. Radiant Creamy (rated ****4.3) isn’t only the best concealer for dry skin: in all of professional grade beauty, I consider it to be the standard liquid concealer.
Milabu Beauty Method: How I applied the Fenty Concealer for bright and covered under eyes.
If you’re looking to test this concealer, here’s how I applied it for glowing under eyes. This concealer sets quite fast, so I recommend applying and blending one eye at a time.
- Use the flat doe foot applicator to apply the product to your inner corner, bringing the product down your face. A little goes a long way, so just a few swipes will do.
- Use a concealer brush to extend the product across the lower lash line and down your face, covering the entire under eye area.
- To make sure it’s flawlessly blended into the rest of your face base, stipple a foundation brush over top.
- In my opinion, this concealer doesn’t need to be set. However, if you want to be sure this product won’t budge, use a fluffy face brush to dab a bit of setting powder over your under eyes.
Tip: You can also use this concealer to brighten the rest of your face. Apply to your chin, forehead, or around your nose to add some extra luminosity.
