Ri-ri shook things up in the beauty world with her launch of Fenty Beauty at Sephora this past week. The collection features everything you need for a fresh glowy look including foundations, highlighters, translucent powder, primer, contour sticks, and even a spiffy blotting sheet dispenser.
But which products are actually worth buying? Luckily, for our viewing (and shopping) pleasure, some of our favorite beauty influencers gave their two cents on the singer’s makeup line.
Fair warning: these closer looks may leave you dipping into your savings account.
The struggle of finding the perfect foundation is real — and if you prefer something more lightweight, you’re going to love the Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation. “[The foundation] gives you a very soft and natural finish — the finish of this product is so silky.” Karen shares her thoughts on the foundation, her obsession with the highlighters, and even her not-so-favorite product from the line.
Maya creates a full look using just Fenty Beauty products while giving her first impressions on each of the products. Let’s just say her swatch of the Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick has us wanting all 10 shades. The soft iridescent finish leaves you looking like you’re glowing from within. “I’m obsessed — I want to rub this stuff all over my face.”
We’re definitely suckers for gorgeous packaging, and Rihanna nailed it with her first beauty line. Laura comments on the luxurious and duo-chromed packaging and her favorite product, the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter. “I truly believe this one will look beautiful on all skin tones.”
There has been a lot of buzz about the Fenty Beauty’s foundation oxidizing, making it difficult to find the perfect match for your skin tone. Luckily, Nyma breaks it down for you by testing out a few swatches on her hand. She also tests the darkest shade in the collection and is pretty pleased with the results. “It’s not sticky, it’s not wet, and it feels like it’s already been set with powder.”
A natural contour is easily achievable with the Match Stix Matte Skinstick. Although Kasey isn’t usually a fan of cream products, the Fenty Beauty contour stick was a sweet surprise. “It blends beautifully and it didn’t pull off any of my foundation. No streaks or patches!”
