Huda Beauty Faux Filter Foundation Review

I’ve had the Huda beauty faux filter foundation for a year and a half now and have been using it every single day since. I wanted to share a review with you all and to let you know how amazing it is!

Anyone that knows me will know that when it comes to foundations, I love a full coverage, a velvet finish and that it’s long lasting.

The Huda beauty faux filter foundation has really surprised me because it has all them qualities. I’ve used a few foundations over the years and not found a single foundation with all three qualities.

Packaging and design:

The Huda beauty faux filter foundation comes in a plastic bottle with a pump. It has the Huda beauty logo across the front. I feel like it has a really expensive look and feel to it. Personally, I love it.


I purchased the Huda beauty faux filter foundation from Cultbeauty for £32 and it has 35ml. I got 2 foundations one for when I go on holidays and the summer (I tan realllly quickly) and one for when my tan has worn off. I got the shades Amaretti and Cheesecake. Personally I feel like the foundation is worth £32. I use half a pump and it’s enough for a full coverage and I wear make up on a daily basis. It lasted me about a year. I’ve still got my lighter shade so that will probably last me another year.


The Huda beauty faux filter foundation comes in 30 shades. It has warm and cool toned shades so there’s definitely a shade for everyone!

Quality and performance:

I’m definitely not disappointed in the quality of the foundation. It does what it says on the bottle and works amazingly. Giving a soft velvety finish. The only thing I’m not a big fan of is the strong perfume scent. But you get used to it after a bit!

I used a normal brush to apply the foundation at first and it was a disaster. It’s best applied with an extra damp beauty blender. I would also suggest applying a primer. I find the Huda beauty primer works best. One foundation bottle has lasted me just under a year and I am on to my second bottle. So I guess you can say I’m a fan!

Final thoughts:

The Huda beauty faux filter foundation is by far the best foundation I have used! The only bad point I can think of is that it has a perfume smell but it’s not too strong. If your looking for a full coverage foundation with a soft velvety finish and is long lasting then look no further.
