My take on the mega music star’s new makeup line.
When I heard Rihanna was coming out with a new makeup line that supports ALL skin tones and shades, I could not get on it fast enough! I have been trying the Fenty Beauty products for almost a week now and I am ready to share my thoughts!
Here are the products I have purchased:
PRO FILT’R INSTANT RETOUCH PRIMER I think this primer is okay. I love the color and it is fairly smooth, but I prefer a primer that soaks into my skin. I like when a primer makes my skin have a slight glow before I apply my foundation.
PRO FILT’R SOFT MATTE LONGWEAR FOUNDATION, shade “350” I first ordered this foundation online, from www.sephora.com. I looked at the swatches on a brown-skinned woman’s arm, compared the color samples to my own and then ordered two shades that appeared to match my skin… FAIL! The colors were both WAY too dark! I highly recommend going into the Sephora store and getting color-matched before buying.
Later, I went Sephora. They did a color-match and I ended up with a close-to-perfect match! I normally have to mix two different shades, (which I don’t mind doing) but it was nice to only have to purchase one.
This foundation is a great light to medium coverage foundation! It is smooth, glides on the skin like a dream and settles into a very soft matte. The formula is so lightweight, I do not feel like I have foundation on! It also blends well with my highlight and contour products and this for me, is key! So far, Pro Filt’r has proven to be long-wearing too! If you’re looking for a light, beautiful matte-finish foundation, Fenty Beauty foundation will be perfect for you!
KILLAWATT FREESTYLE HIGHLIGHTER, shade “Trophy Wife” Okay, so this highlighter is a game-changer! If you like the “Blonde” skinstick, this is the skinstick’s alter-ego. When you want your highlight to pop, look no further because this is the most POPpin’ highlighter in the Fenty Beauty collection! When I dusted “Trophy Wife” on my cheeks, my face was instantly given life! It is powdery, light and a little goes a long way! It has glitter flecks mixed in that give it that incredible “umph!” If you are going out on the town, this will set your face off! The best part about “Trophy Wife” is that I didn’t break out after using it! My skin is usually very sensitive when applying metallic-fleck highlighters, but not with this one!
MATCH STIX SHIMMER SKINSTICK, shade “Blonde” Now, this is my jam! This is probably one of my favorite Fenty Beauty products so far. I use it everyday to highlight my cheeks, temple and cupid’s bow. The skinstick has just enough shimmer to give me a subtle glow without overdoing it. I use shade “Blonde” and it really is unlike other gold highlights that I’ve used; it is golden in tone, which is very unique and I am diggin’ it!
All in all, I am really enjoying using Fenty Beauty by Rihanna. I suggest you try it out if you haven’t already! When you do, or if you have, let me know what you think!
Happy Fenty shopping!
