If you have tried our new #FauxFilter Skin Finish Foundation Stick, then your new #FauxFilter Luminous Matte Liquid Foundation Shade should be the same. Please note that when comparing our new #FauxFilter Luminous Matte Liquid Foundation with the #FauxFilter Stick Foundation, the liquid takes time to develop to its ‘true shade,’ so please allow time for this. As the stick is anhydrous, the swatched shade is the true shade, which also shows to be brighter than the liquid foundation, which has more of a powdery, matte finish.

Before we dig into the shades, here’s a little explanation of undertones to help you choose your shade.

4. The old #FauxFilter Matte Liquid Foundation Vs #FauxFilter Skin Finish Foundation Stick Shades

One important thing to note when comparing our old #FauxFilter Matte Foundation and the #FauxFilter Stick Foundation is that the liquid can take a little time to develop to its ‘true shade.’ As the stick is anhydrous (it contains no water), the swatched shade is the true shade, therefore it will not change. This means it’s important to give time for the #FauxFilter Liquid Foundation to develop before truly comparing the shades. Also note that #FauxFilter Liquid Foundation has a powdery, matte finish, that will appear slightly lighter than the anhydrous #FauxFilter Stick Foundation, which has a bright, luminous finish.
