I get a lot of compliments on my makeup (thanks y’all!!) and when I tell people its Fenty Beauty, they are pretty shocked and I get it! A music icon, making makeup?
When I heard that Rihanna was releasing a line of makeup, I had my reservations at first. While she always looked flawless, how can she guarantee the same look for us regular folks?
I waited for the hype to die down some before I decided to try it out because it stayed sold out repeatedly for weeks. I finally went to Sephora and tested out the product. First things first. I tested the foundation ($34) and I loved the scent. It is a light and clean fragrance that isn’t overpowering at all. The foundation is water-based and easy to apply. Riri really outdid herself by providing a range of foundation skin colors and trying to cater to everyone, and you are bound to find your shade.
The primer ($32)! Must have. You wouldn’t paint your walls without it right? So be sure to always prime your face for smooth, all day coverage.
Matchsticks ($25) … boy oh boy these things have changed everything. I use the sticks to contour my face, and they are so easy to use! Just swipe and blend. They are multifunctional and can be used as eyeshadow, lipstick, and even blush! They come separately or in trios ($54).
All in all, I was impressed and am forever sold! You can tell that Rihanna didn’t just slap her name on a product, but that she has tested it and believes in it. I wouldn’t care if she never makes music again, just keep my face flawless! Thanks Ri!
