On my trip to France, I decided to visit Sephora. Unfortunately, we don’t have one in Holland. One of the beauty counters that I wanted to see was Fenty Beauty by the legendary Rihanna. In this article, I will tell you about the products I brought.
Liked I mentioned before Rihanna is the face behind Fenty Beauty. After years of experimenting with different beauty brands. She noticed that there was a lack of beauty products based on all skin types and tones. So She decided to make her own so that people everywhere would be included.
Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r soft matte long wear Foundation (1.08 oz/ 32 mL) €34,-
Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation gives skin an instantly smooth, pore-diffused, shine-free finish that easily builds to medium to full coverage. This oil-free soft matte foundation is made with climate-adaptive technology that’s resistant to sweat and humidity, and won’t clog pores. Cruelty-Free
About the product: I like the sound of that! The foundation comes in 50 shades. That is awesome! And has won in 2018 The Allure Best of Beauty Breakthrough Award.
Packaging: I love how heavy and luxurious the packaging is. The foundation comes in a mattified glass bottle. Within white Fenty Beauty written on top. Normally foundation tent to come in a wide glass bottle. But this one is quite smaller, which makes it easier to hold. And gives you a good grip. What reduces the change for you to lett it drop. What I also like is that it has a pump. No spilling of the foundation.
Formula, Texture: Pro Filt’r soft matte long-wear foundation is a creamy foundation, that blends in like a dream. It has a bit of a sweet scent to it, but this disappears as soon as the product sets.
Shade: My perfect color in the winter is 430. The foundation has a yellow undertone but did not oxide or set darker in tone.
Finish: Flawless coverage! And just with 2 pumps. It covers everything, but without being cakey. Despite the fact that the Pro Filt’r soft matte long-wear foundation is matte, it doesn’t feel to dry. In fact, it feels extremely light and airy. Letting skin look and feels like skin. If you want medium coverage, just use 1 pump and blend it out with a damp beauty blender.
Verdict: What a beautiful foundation! Perfect for when you want your foundation to look flawless! I love how it blends into my skin and stays true to color. It not only looks perfect in real life but also on photos. See my first impression video here.
Sun Stalk’r Instant Warmth Bronzer (6.23 g/ 0.22 oz) €31,-
Super smooth, creamy, and easy to blend, this light-as-air bronzing powder builds like a dream yet is hard to overdo, giving you a believable sun-soaked glow that stays put all day without transferring
To be honest with you guys, ever since Fenty Beauty launches these bronzers I was already a fan. And that without even try it out. Because it’s extremely difficult to find a good bronzer for the deep skin tone. I’ve been using the same pressed powder for years as a bronzer. So when a brand comes out with things that are missing in the beauty world. I’m applauding and given my support!
Shade: It comes in 8 different shades. The shade that I have is Coco Naughty wich is perfect for the deep skin tone with neutral undertone. When I’m tanner I think Mocha Mami is a better option. And Yes.. also black people get darker in the sun.
Packaging: It comes in a beautiful rose gold compact. A real luxuries piece of art. That will look beautiful on your makeup table. But the formula is what makes it so special.
Texture: It is a creamy-yet-dry texture, which ultimately means that it applies sheer and gives you more room for building it up to a desirable extent. It is smooth and blends nicely in without patches. Its blend so perfect that you can’t even tell where your bronzer begins and end. You know sometimes, you can mess up your makeup by going ham on the bronzer. That’s impossible with this one.
There is zero powder kick-up here and thanks to this product’s light texture, you can easily achieve a believable look of sun-kissed skin. You know the one that looks great on photos, but even better in real life? Basically, it is a matte bronzer but I do think that it has more of a natural skin-like finish with no sparkle or shimmer to it (never chalky, dry or cakey).
Final Thoughts? A beautiful bronzer that will look perfect on every skin.
Diamond Bomb How Many Carats (8 g / 0.28 oz) €37,-
A one-of-a-kind diamond-dusted highlighter that applies like a 3D glittering veil, delivering pure, show-stopping sparkle all over the face and body.
Packaging: A beautiful silver compact filled with sparkles. And again the luxurious feeling can’t be missed.
Texture: Rihanna designed this intense highlighter to celebrate 1 year of Fenty Beauty. The adequate of the name is insane. It’ really looks like carats and can be applied all over the body. With his unique jelly powder formula that melts in the skin. And lett you shine bright like a diamond!
When you pick up the highlighter with your fingers, you noticed that it kinda feels like touching silk. Without any pressure, you will have an amazing pickup and pigmentation. I think it’s fair to say that a little will goes a long way.
Thoughts? I normally stay away from a bright highlighter like this. Simple because they normally look ashy on deeper skin tones. But this one, blends in like a dream. And looks beautiful on every skin tone. I’m impressed!
Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer Diamond Milk (9 mL / 0.3 oz) €18,-
The ultimate gotta-have-it lip gloss with explosive shine that feels as good as it looks—Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb is the essential finishing touch to your Fenty Face.
Shades: It comes in 3 different shades. Fenty Glow, Diamond Milk, and Fu$$y.
Packaging: A silver durable plastic container. Looks quite nice and luxurious. It has a decent size of a want.
Formula/Texture: The formula enriched with shea moisture does not only moisturize the lips but makes lips appear bigger. It’ has a non-sticky formula that is super shinny. The smell is quite nice, smells like peaches and vanilla. With just one stroke, you have enough sparkles to cover your entire lip.
Verdict: I have the color Diamond Milk, which is a shimmering wash of milky pearl that’s like a dewy highlight for your lips. And I’m obsessed. If you love a good gloss lip, you need to give the gloss bomb a try.
