Over the weekend I did some well needed retail therapy. My week was nonstop work and I needed to take some time and just walk up and down the mall and just shop. I had my mine set on adding a few new products to my makeup collection. So I headed over to my local Sephora at Somerset Collection Mall. I went in and the next thing I know I was cashing out on quite a few of Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty products! If you are makeup lover, like myself, you probably already knew about new releases that hit the shelf last week. I finally got my hands on the new bronzer and highlighters. So its only right that I share with you all my “Fenty Face”. On today’s post I will be showing off what I bought and provide a mini review over all the Fenty Beauty products I purchased. HAUL TIME !
So Rihanna has been killing the game lately. I really do miss her music but her beauty and lingerie line has been making major head way. First and foremost I really do appreciate that Rihanna for pushing diversity and inclusion since the beginning. Fenty Beauty definitely change the game when they first launch their line of 50 shades of complexion products. THEY DID IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME.. no shade! So shout out to her. She had everybody shooked and I appreciate her for doing this.
So, I went crazy in Sephora this past weekend. I was watching a lot of Youtubers, and a few of them that I watch went to private party with Fenty Beauty. They met Rihanna!!! So of course they took to their channels to tell about the products and how shook they were to meet her. I heard so many good reviews about the bronzers I had to get my hands on it. So I had to join the wave. I spent up all my work points (we get points at work to buy things) to get four $25 gift cards for Sephora. The plan was to do some serious shopping and spending.
HERE’S WHAT I GOT FROM SEPHORA
SUN STALK’R INSTANT WARMTH BRONZER
This was the most anticipated products out of the all. The Fenty Beauty Sun Stalk’r Instant Warmth Bronzer is another banger from the Fenty brand. I purchase the shade Mocha Mami, which is a deep dark red undertone bronzer. The bronzer comes 8 other different shades. Now bronzer is my go to. Honestly I prefer to bronze than to contour.
Sidenote: Bronzing is the art of warming the face and contour is define and add shadow to the face.
This product does it for me. It definitely warms up my skin and leaves my face with nice tan finish around the perimeter of my face. On the site it claims to be transfer resistant and it live up to the hype.
On the flip side, Mocha Mami was definitely dark enough for my complexion, however I do wish they will extend the shade range for my deep dark sisters. We still have a lot of work to do in the beauty industry! This retails for $30 on Fenty and Sephora sites. This product gets FashionLayn’s stamp of approval and definitely worth it !
KILLAWATT FOIL FREESTYLE HIGHLIGHTER
Next on my beauty list was the Fenty Beauty Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter in the shade Penny4UThots. Auntie Ri had me at the name alone. This is a metallic burnt copper highlighter. Super glittery ! Now, this product, I have to be honest, I am a little underwhelmed with this one. It has big flakes of metallic chucks, kinda like confetti. In my opinion it add inconsistencies to my face. Then the product does not pop my cheeks, it is a bit too subtle for my taste. I am girl who love for her checks to pop and it did not do it for me. If you are a girl that loves silvery undertone highlighter and loves to be subtle then this product is for you. It made me look a little gray.
The best thing about this highlighter is that you can use this product anywhere on your face. So I am not going to take it back to the store, instead I am going to pack this on my eye lids. This highlighter retails at $36 at Fenty and Sephora.
PRO FILT’R INSTANT RETOUCH SETTING POWER
Up next on the list was the Fenty Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder. I purchase this in the shade of “Honey”. This superfine milled loose setting powder comes in 8 different shades use to set and brightening. This product is super sheer and definitively has a soft brightening effect to the skin. Let me tell you “less is more”. You do not need to add touch much on you face because that will leave yon super dry. This product is super comfortable on the skin and think it best applied with a sponge! This setting powder retail at $32! I am a fan of this product I want to go back and get another shade because the honey shade works well to set the rest of my face not my under eye. I prefer to be a bit more brighter and love a yellow undertone! This product gets FashionLayn’s stamp of approval and definitely worth it !
PRO FILT’R SOFT MATTE LONGWEAR FOUNDATION
So most people already know that the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation has been the star of the show for quite sometime. It is a medium to full coverage foundation that comes in 50 other shade ranges. BOMB ! A year ago a did a separate review on this product and I still feel good about this product, here is what I said. I still love the formula. I love the way it melts in my skin and it is easy to apply. On the flip side I do need to go back to find my exact match. I have been searching for the right match to balance out my face and chest. Currently, my I have foundation in the shade 420 (deep tan, warm undertone) and I do think it is bit too warm for my skin.
In addition this shade is my “summer shade”, so that could also be the issue. If you have super dry skin this product is still not for you however you can pair this product with hydrating primer or mix it with a dewy foundation. Maybe Auntie RiRi might come out with dewy finish foundation. That will be lit! This product retail for $35 on Fenty Beauty and Sephora. This product gets FashionLayn’s stamp of approval and definitely worth it !
PRO FILT’R INSTANT RETOUCH CONCEALER
Finally I got my hands on the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer. Rihanna few month gave the ladies a 50 shades of concealer to go along with the foundation. The concealer like the foundation is medium to full coverage. It glides on very creamy and fell super hydration. The concealer claim to be longwearing, light, and creaseproof. Man some super bold claims! I wore this concealer for three days straight and I must say it lives up to the hype. It is very comfortable and lightweight on the skin. It it stay put! I started creasing once I was made it home after working a 12 hours shift. So I must say I was very impressed by the concealer. On the flip side I purchase the concealer in shade 390 (deep tan, yellow undertones). My plan is to go back to get lighter shade that will brighten up my under eye area. I do wish the bottle was a bit more bigger. This products retails for $26.
GLOSS BOMB UNIVERSAL LIP LUMINIZER
These gloss bombs are by far my favorite products of them all! This is high shine universal lip gloss.The Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminzer are so amazing! I have them in the shade of Fu$$y and Fenty Glow. They are so longwearing and sit comfortably on my lips.I have nothing to say bad about this product. I have like 2 of them in my purse and I stock up every time I go to Sephora. Each lip bomb retails at $18 a piece. This product gets FashionLayn’s stamp of approval and definitely worth it !
