Hello and welcome back to our ultra fabulous readers! Today we will be discussing all things beauty, specifically Fenty Beauty! Unless you’ve been living under a rock you may have heard by now that the incredible RiRi has come out with her own makeup line. This makeup line has been getting a lot of buzz because it was curated and thought up of with woman of all skin tones in mind. So without further discussion let’s jump right in!
Rihanna shook up the beauty industry by debuting 40 different shades of foundation. Which for those with either really light or really dark complexions, this diverse range of shades will seem god sent! Now, this foundation is said to be a demi-matte finish with a medium to full coverage and once set this makeup should last you throughout your work day. The only difficult aspect of this foundation will be finding your perfect shade. Each foundation will come labeled with not only the shade but also the undertones. But as an insider tip, grab a foundation a couple of shades lighter than anticipated as this foundation is said to oxidize on the skin once dry! So keep your receipt when purchasing just in case you need to exchange for a different shade later on.
Net up is our personal favorite, the highlighters! Fenty Beauty debuted with 6 different highlighters under the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter range. Each shade caters not only to one’s color preference but also to different skin tones as well. The most talked about highlighter currently is Trophy Wife. Trophy Wife is a 3D hyper metallic gold and it is blinding! This highlighter delivers a stunning gold highlight that can be applied anywhere from the cheek bones to the collarbone and more. But be warned all of these highlighters are super pigmented so it’s best to layer on a little bit at a time.
The one thing we did find interesting about Fenty Beauty was the lack of lip products. To be specific currently there is only one lip product within the entire line. However that being said this lip product, the Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer, is the ultimate lip product. This lip gloss delivers with its ultra high shine and universally flattering rose nude shade. This gloss is said to be flattering on most skin complexions and unlike most glosses, with its unique gel like formula, this product is not sticky on the lips whatsoever! Which for us is a win in our book.
Finally, rounding out our first impression on Fenty Beauty, let’s talk about brushes. Rihanna didn’t stop at just makeup, she also debuted a range of beauty tools to help you apply all her fabulous makeup. From a foundation brush to a beauty sponge, there are a lot of options for you to choose from if you are in the market for new beauty tools. Prices range from 16 dollars for the beauty sponge to 34 dollars for a full sized brush. The sponge is said to be comparable if not better than the makeup cult classic Beauty Blender and the brushed themselves are said to be extremely soft and densely packed! Overall the beauty tools are a hit and you can’t go wrong.
That rounds out our first impressions on Rihanna’s newly debuted Fenty Beauty. We hoped you liked our take on some of our favorite products! Comment down below your favorite product thus far and what you’re excited for Fenty Beauty to come out with next. 🙂
