You probably already know by now that Rihanna released her makeup collection, Fenty Beauty during NYFW. I was initially uninterested as I am with most celebrity makeup products, but once I found out her collection includes 40 foundation shades with several options for women of darker skin tones, she had my undivided attention and I knew I had to get my hands on it.
Take a peak at the full first impression and review above. In the video, I showcase how the makeup lasts as I wore Fenty Beauty for 15 hours.
It is perceived that dark skinned women don’t buy makeup when in actuality, the beauty industry is filled with companies that aren’t providing the proper hues that suit people of darker skin, making it seem as if those of lighter skin tones purchase more makeup than others.
Once Fenty Beauty launched, the darker foundation shades sold out much quicker than the lighter shades, which is proof that once a product is created properly for women of darker skin tone, it will be highly supported. The Fenty Beauty makeup line is proof that all skin tones purchase makeup.
I only purchased products that are true to me so I didn’t get the matchsticks because I do not cream contour, as well as several other items. Below are the pros and cons of the items that I tried out.
INSTANT RETOUCH PRIMER
– It feels like a moisturizer
– Leaves my skin feeling softer
– It’s a bit dewy and I prefer a primer that’s a bit more matte.
Nonetheless, it is now my go-to primer, despite the dewiness.
PRO FILT’R FOUNDATION
– Drys fast
– Matte, therefore not much powder is needed to set it (I didn’t wear powder in the video).
-Literally feels like skin and blends with the skin perfectly.
– Lasts long.
– Very lightweight.
FULL BODIED FOUNDATION BRUSH
-Very soft synthetic bristles.
– Blends the foundation to perfection! Leaves no streaks.
KILLAWATT TROPHY WIFE HIGHLIGHTER
– Lasts long.
– Blends well.
– Easily used as an eyeshadow.
-Looks like gold glitter instead of a golden glow, unless you use a little bit and make sure it’s super sheer on your face.
MAKE UP SPONGE
-Super soft and blends very easily (but not better than the beauty blender).
– The top makes it easy for blending under eye concealer.
GLOSS BOMB UNIVERSAL LIP LUMINIZER
– Smells good
-Perfect for all skin tones as that was the idea behind it’s creation.
My images doesn’t include me wearing the gloss because I’m more of a matte lippie kind of girl, yet I tried the gloss in the video.
