Fenty Beauty Review
Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation Review
This matte foundation was named an Allure Award-winning foundation in 2018. It is also one of the most sought-after cosmetic products by Fenty. This foundation is unique because it comes in more than 50 Fenty foundation colors.
It can be built up to achieve full coverage, and it blends to give a soft matte finish. This foundation is oil-free and made with climate-adaptive technology, making it resistant to humidity and sweat.
This patented formula is lightweight in the application and leaves skin soft, smooth, and pore-diffused. This product is only $36 and can be made an essential part of your makeup routine.
All Fenty concealers and foundations are equally suitable for both light and dark skin tones.
Soft Matte Longwear Liquid Foundation
Before trying the Fenty Matte Foundation, I was a CC cream addict. I was averse to matte foundations because they were difficult to mix and cakey. Everything I thought I knew was wrong about foundations has been dismantled by the Fenty Matte Foundation.
This product is the only one I have found that doesn’t make my skin feel and look drier than the Sahara during drought. It provides more coverage than creams or tints, but it is lightweight and easy to use.
The real star of this product is its longevity. Its durability. This foundation can be used with the Fenty primer to ensure it stays on all day. The Fenty Matte Foundation is an excellent choice because of its flawless shade range.
Fenty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo Review
Shiny objects are a draw, and the Killawatt Freestyle highlighter duo will make everyone stop and think twice about it. This powder, cream-based and lightweight, has a super fine shimmer that blends seamlessly into skin to give it a radiant, long-lasting finish.
This highlighter is super creamy and easy to use. It contains two complementary colors with nine combinations. One side is designed for daytime use, while the other has intense pigment.
Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo $36 will make you look like you’ve been slathered in the sun.
Fenty Skin Total Cleans’r Remove-it-All Cleanser
Surprisingly, out of all three products, this cleanser was my favorite and one that I will most likely incorporate into my routine. I don’t usually get too fussy about my skin washes. They only stay on the skin for a few seconds, then go to the sink. So, all I need is to clean my face without irritating or stripping it.
I was skeptical about the idea of cream to foam formula that lathers while you massage it into your skin. I know that cream or cream cleansers can be too drying for my skin. They strip my skin of its natural moisture, cause my skin to become dry and oily, and cause my eyes to turn red and itchy.
This one is almost soft and almost like a melted marshmallow. The lather it makes feels very gentle, almost as if it’s squeezing the skin. It is infused with vitamin C and other antioxidants and removed from my makeup without the use of double-cleansing or makeup removers.
It dispersed my mascara in seconds and did not irritate my sensitive eye at all.
Fenty Skin Fat Water Pore-Refining Toner Serum
This toner serum formula was a delight to use, both texturally and emotionally. It is not what I expected. It is more solid and jelly-like than an essence, viscous, oily, and oily than a traditional moisturizer. Although Fat Water serum doesn’t slip through my fingers, it can be applied easily with or without cotton pads.
Although it’s extremely easy to spread, you can only apply a thin layer of the product over your entire face in about 2 seconds. However, it took 20-30 seconds for the product to soak into my skin and then dissipate. It didn’t leave any greasy residue or slick oil sheen and did not leave my skin feeling stripped. (Although it left a slightly greasy residue).
This toner-serum combination contains most of my favorite ingredients, including aloe, Hyaluronic Acid, and Niacinamide. There are also a few additional goodies such as Kalahari Melon, witch hazel and baobab.
It’s easy to use with the twist-up cap and squeezable plastic bottle. The idea of combining exfoliating and brightening, hydrating, and protecting benefits in one step is appealing. It’s also worth mentioning the addition of niacinamide (a vitamin B3 derivative) which has been shown to improve skin texture and skin tone.
Fat Water toner serum has the most subtle scent, a faint floral that I couldn’t live without, but it didn’t ruin me.
I found the only problem with this product to be witch hazel. This astringent may have favorable properties for certain types of acne but can cause redness, dryness, or other skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema, or rosacea.
My face became more reddened and inflamed after using this product. I am a sufferer of rosacea, but not to the extent that it flared up into a full-blown rosacea attack. Unfortunately, this product will not be part of my daily routine.
Fenty Beauty Match Stix
The brand was launched in 2017 and has changed the makeup industry as well as the way I contour my skin. The Match Stix Truffle’s precision helps me shape my cheekbones, and the cream formula makes it easy to blend.
You can also get them in a Match Stix Trio Set, including the perfect highlighter. This makes it a must-have when you travel. –Khaliha Hawkins, producer
Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint
I am a bit self-conscious about the size of my lips. People often mention it. I avoid bright, bold colors because I feel embarrassed. But this one is amazing. It was easy to apply, and it has enough pigment not to require many layers. It’s light and feels great on the lips. This red looks fantastic on everyone, did I not? –K.H.
Fenty Full Frontal Mascara
My favorite trick for applying mascara is to start with a large, thick mascara brush and then go back over it with smaller, more spindly brushes to grab every lash. The “flat-to fat” brush has traditional, round bristles and flat bristles.
It takes some time to get the hang of it. I had to stare at it for a while to use the right side correctly. But once you do, your lashes will grow in length almost immediately. Lindsay Schallon is senior beauty editor
Blurring Skin Tint
I have always loved a base product with more sheerness. So when Fenty released Eaze Drop, I was thrilled, and I have been a fan ever since.
Although this product has a very light coverage, it can still cover redness and other imperfections. The blurring effect is what makes this skin tint unique. It feels like I have a filter applied to my skin. My pores appear almost invisible when I use this tint.
This product is excellent for people with dehydrated skin. It also has a longer shelf life than average skin tints. I can apply it in the morning before I go to work, and it is still there when I return home at night. This is my favorite skin tint out of all the ones I have tried –Madeline Galassi Fashion Content Manager
Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer
This product is designed to cover sleepless nights or rough mornings. It’s a creamy, crease-proof liquid that gives you medium to complete coverage throughout the day.
This concealer by Fenty is available in more than 50 shades. It blends effortlessly into a soft matte finish. This concealer can be worn over any Fenty Beauty primer or foundation to prevent your makeup from slipping or smudging.
You can conceal redness and dark spots for only 0.27 oz with the Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer, which costs $26
Fenty Beauty Body Lava Luminizer Review
Rihanna recorded a promotional video for Fenty Beauty that gave fans an insight into the inspiration behind Body Lava Luminizer. She would mix sunscreen with eyeshadow palettes or eyeshadow pots on sunny beaches to illuminate her skin.
This product is considered an upgrade to the at-home treatment. The gel-based formula gives your skin a glowing, dewy, and shiny finish, ready for summer vacation.
It’s made with light-diffusing micro-pearls and sheer tinted color. There are three Fenty Beauty lava colors to choose from, each with a delightful vanilla scent. Get glowing with the Body Lava Lightener for just $59.
Fenty Slip Shine Sheer Shiny Lipstick Review
Lipstick that drys out your lips is the worst. The Slip Shine Sheer Shiny lipstick provides hydration and color while also providing color.
The creamy texture of this lightweight formula is easily buildable thanks to the pomegranate butter. This lipstick is shiny and comes in more than ten shades, including a purple ‘vamps who brunch’ shade and a peachy pink ‘glazed’ shade.
Fenty Beauty eyeshadows are perfect for those who love matching lipstick with their overall makeup. The Slip Shine Sheer Shimmer Lipstick is only $22 and can be carried as a travel essential.
Fenty Beauty Longwear Liquid Eyeliner
I take my liquid eyeliner very seriously as someone who wears a cat eye every day. For past few years, I have used the same drugstore eyeliner and rarely go off the beaten path – until now. The Fenty liquid eyeliner comes with a sharp, felt tip and a black shade that is almost effortless to apply.
A consistent and easy product to use, especially for someone like me who applies eyeliner from one foot outside the door (and sometimes at my desk), is essential. Contributor: Sarah Morse
Fenty Beauty Brow MVP Fine Brow Pencil & Styler
A conversation I had recently with an eyebrow expert revealed that a pencil is the best thing for your brows. I was told that any other product could make my brows look less full, so I have been searching for one that deposits natural-looking pigment with no pulling or tugging.
Fenty’s Brow MVP Black-Brown was a great pencil. It created feathery volume and didn’t look too dense. It comes with a mini eyebrow brush and not just a regular spoolie. –Perrie Samotin, digital director
Freestyle Cream Bronzer
I have tried many beauty products over the years. I rarely finish a product before becoming bored and looking for something else. Fenty’s cream bronzer is the only one I have used to the end and would repurchase.
It is perfectly blendable and gives a natural-yet-contoured look that I consistently get compliments on. It’s the reason my makeup looks so good –Jessica Welsh, Associate Editor
