Fenty Beauty By Rihanna Review + Swatches

Hello Guys! Please bear with me right now as I am currently traveling and I am literally typing this in the plane while trying not to get dizzy, LOL. I am on the first part of my traveling and will be in London in a few weeks, as well as in Spain. Also, I’ll be embarking on a trip to Hong Kong and to another place in Asia. I’m gonna be so jet lagged to the bones, darn…

 

Anyways, as promised, I wanna talk about Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty Makeup. I was so glad that my local Sephora immediately carried them as soon as the official launch of the makeup came out. Well initially, I saw that there were only a few products displayed at the center aisle of my local Sephora store, but as soon as I was halfway inside the store, I saw that there was actually a row full of Fenty Beauty Products. From highlighters to contouring sticks, and to makeup brushes, it was a sight to behold. It was also packed with a lot of people, women young and old, teens, and curious onlookers alike were all there.

 

Fenty Beauty By Rihanna review

 

 

There was a lot to try and to like, I was really excited, so I grabbed a few stuff that I thought I might like. First, I picked a highlighter palette in some peachy pink shade, but then I changed my mind and grabbed a more golden peach tone. I also saw the famous golden yellow Killawatt Trophy Wife Highlighter which was used by Rihanna in one of her ad video for this makeup line. To be honest, I kinda laugh when I saw it because I was like “oh my, girl, that’s a whole lotta highlighters!” I thought it was a bit too much, and with that highlighting brush, it seems like RiRi’s highlighted cheeks could blind them aliens in the outer space. Haha! So I skipped on that shade even though it really looks beautiful. Also, I was really worried that if I use that shade I might cause a traffic accident whenever I get out of the house, or that I might cause my semi-blind neighbor to become fully blind. Oh my. Anyway, enough chatter, I wasn’t sure what Shimmer Skinstick to get, only that I really like the Trippin shade, furthermore, I wasn’t even sure which Matte Skinstick to get either, so I picked up the Match Stix Trio for medium skin tone which came with the Trippin shade. I also picked up a few little brushes which seem really good for traveling. I also bought a blotting powder that looks handy for on the go oil-control of the face.

Right when I was about to check out, a few Sephora salesladies mentioned how good the Fenty Foundation brush is, they’re really in “ohs” and “ahs” about it, but I just decided to stick to my purchase and took note of the brush in my head. A few days later, I saw Jeffree Star’s review about the Fenty beauties and he seemed to really love the Foundation brush, as it gives him a more airbrushed look than the Beautyblender itself. So, I gave in and decided to try the brush myself together with another Shimmer Skinstick that was also stuck in my head. While I was at Sephora, I tried the Unicorn shade and another lighter shade that’s also very close it, called Confetti. So, I purchased the Foundation brush and the Confetti shade additionally, and I got a sample of the Fenty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Foundation as well. I heard good things about their foundation, but I decided to skip it for now as I got the samples and I was more curious about their texture and their effect as opposed to their shades. Although I was really eyeing the shade 190, I think I’ll do a review on the latest foundations and I’ll add the Fenty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Foundation in there.

 

Here are the stuff I bought:

 

fenty Match Stix Trio in Medium bamboo trippin mocha

 

Invisimatte Blotting Powder (0.3 oz: $32) – This is a magnetic translucent blotting powder that partners with the Touchup Brush #130. The nice thing about this powder is that it not only controls oil, but it also acts as a setting powder over foundation or under eyes for a more “wide awake” look. It’s soft finely-milled powder doesn’t leave a white blotchy cast on the face. It’s also great for traveling or just to be in your purse for a quick retouch. Also, I love the tiny mirror and sponge that came with it.

fenty Match Stix Shimmer Skin Stick in Confetti

Match Stix Trio in Medium ($54) – Shades: Bamboo (light to medium beige), Trippin (golden glazed apricot), and Mocha (deep-medium brown). These sticks magnetize each other which makes them easy to pick up and store. I picked this trio of shades because it seems like the ideal group of shades for medium skin tones and it has the shade “Trippin” which is a nice peachy tone that’s subtly shimmery. It can double as either a blush or as a highlighter. The bamboo shade is great to brighten the undereyes and the mocha shade is nice for contouring that’s easy to blend and can be layered. These sticks are not really that creamy, contrary to most makeup sticks out there. While I do feel that the whole Fenty line is made for someone with oily skin, I was actually surprised that even though they may feel a bit drying to the touch, they’re actually well-pigmented and packed with shimmers, especially when you warm the product against your finger or the palm of your hand. For their price, this trio of sticks has enough product in them to last for quite a long time, also they don’t melt easily which minimize product waste, and they’re very well-pigmented.

 

fenty Portable Touchup Brush 130

 

Full-Bodied Foundation Brush 110 ($34) – Thank God I purchased this brush because this is such a life changer. Yep, it’s true and I’m not kidding. The salesladies at Sephora were right, this brush is indeed SO good. It’s easier and faster to use than a Beautyblender, and it makes for a nice airbrush finish on the face with a liquid foundation. The synthetic bristles are very soft and very dense with just the right length for easy maneuverability. Love the muted nude pink color too. This is definitely gonna be my top foundation brush from now on and will take with me on my travels all the time. P.S. I’ve already washed this brush twice and it held up so well without any loose bristles. Hopefully, this brush will last a very long time.

Portable Touchup Brush 130 ($24) – This is the magnetic brush that can attach to the bottom of the Invisimatte Blotting Powder compact. It is retractable and very soft. I purchased this brush thinking this would really be a nice travel highlighting brush as opposed to the Brush #140, but heck I was wrong. This brush is too pliable and too soft as a travel highlighting/contouring brush. I feel like this is just really great as a quick touch up brush to apply translucent loose powders. But if you really want to use this a highlighter, there might actually be a way with that. Just retract the brush halfway and that would make the bristles stiff, which would then make it easier to use as a highlighter on the cheeks, nose, and brow area.

Portable Highlighting Brush 140 ($24) – I was skeptical about this brush at first because of the reviews that mentioned the bristles being prone to fall out, but when I got it, I was actually impressed at its ability to pick up the amount of product to highlight the face. It did highlight my face well, given that it’s small, but it’s a nice and handy little brush. Great for traveling and it magnetizes well the Match Stix Trio.

 

 fenty Match Stix Shimmer Skin Stick in Confetti

 

Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby ($34) – I originally wanted the Girl Next Door/Chic Phreak which is a duo of soft pink and peachy pink tone of highlighters, but I decided on this duo compact instead, because I love the peachy pink champagne shimmer on them. There are two shades in this compact, while some only have one shade in it (Trophy Wife being one for example). The Mean Money shade almost doesn’t show on the skin, which is a bit disappointing, but the Hu$tla Baby is a beautiful peachy pink champagne shimmer that really makes you glow from within. It reminds me a lot of Becca’s Champagne Pop.

fenty Invisimatte Blotting Powder swatch

Match Stix Shimmer Skin Stick in Confetti (0.25 oz: $25) – I really love this fun shade, and it’s not so out of this world to use that you start reflecting those aliens from outer space. I saw the Unicorn shade but I thought that was too violet-ish for me, so I picked up this one which is a light violet opal effect shimmer and it’s the closest to a mythical creature as I can get. Definitely unicorn enough for me. I love that it’s easy to swipe and still has a natural effect.

 

fenty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation reviewPro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer (1.08 oz: $32) – A mattifying primer that is lightweight and oil-free. This primer is meant to smooth away the pores, even the skin’s texture, and blurs imperfections. While this is indeed comfortable to wear and it makes the foundation last longer with a nice matte effect, in my experience this particular primer is pretty much like all other primers that feel cushiony and slightly blurring, which means that it does help but I could still see my pores and blemishes underneath it, though not so much, but yeah, they’re still there. However, this feels like a really good quality primer that is on par with some other popular brands.

fenty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer swatch

Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation (1.08 oz: $34) – This foundation is really nice because it indeed has a soft matte effect and it doesn’t get cakey. It comes in tons of shades and they’re long-lasting. Their coverage is medium to full and they oxidize a bit, but it’s hard to notice. The nice thing about this foundation is that it’s really lightweight that it almost feels like there’s nothing on your face. Its soft matte effect makes for a natural look and it’s kinda sweat-proof. I like that it’s oil-free and my face didn’t look so shiny for a long time, even beyond 6 hours. Amazing. This is for sure one of the best mattifying foundations I’ve ever tried.

 

That concludes my Fenty Beauty review, but oh wait! There’s one more because I really enjoyed RiRi’s makeup products, I also bought the…

 

fenty Cheek-Hugging Highlight Brush 120

fenty Cheek-Hugging Highlight Brush 120

fenty Cheek-Hugging Highlight Brush 120 review

 

Cheek-Hugging Highlight Brush 120 ($32) – I really thought that I don’t need this brush at all, and I usually just use a fan brush to highlight my nose, cheeks, cupids bow, etc., but sometimes I need my highlighter to really pop out, and this brush does the job. It’s a fool-proof brush on how to apply a highlighter 101. I love its chiseled sides which hug and highlight the cheeks and all other high points of the face precisely. Also, it feels really soft and ergonomic. It’s definitely one of those unique game-changing brushes that you thought you don’t need, but it’ll actually prove you wrong.

 

That’s it for me guys, I hope you enjoyed this very detailed review and my apologies for making it too long.

Sunscreen Roundup & Review

Hello Everyone! There’s only a few days left of Summer and Fall’s just around the corner, oh my, how time goes by so fast. Yet from where I am, the sun is still shining brightly and though I could feel the temperature slowly dipping 1 digit down, it’s still pretty much Summer in here, no doubt. So before we reach the official start of Fall, I’d like to wrap up some sunscreens that I’ve used this Summer and even from the previous ones. Since I haven’t really done an official sunscreen roundup review on this blog, let’s do a recap of some of the sunscreen’s I’ve tried. Some of these products were a hit for me, while some were also a miss.

 

suncare review

 

Let’s find out, shall we?

 

BODY

 

Supergoop! Super Power Sunscreen Mousse Broad Spectrum Spf 50

 

La Roche-Posay Anthelios Cooling Broad Spectrum Spf 60 Water-Lotion Sunscreen (150 ml: $35.99) – A fragrance-free, oil-free, paraben-free, great for sensitive skin sunscreen that has a light water-like texture. It’s great for face and body with added antioxidant protection and water resistant for 80 minutes. Though this was described as cooling and refreshing water-lotion, this didn’t really feel cooling for me, but others whom I’ve also asked to try claimed that they felt a bit of a cooling sensation upon applying it. So it might be just me being insensitive, LOL. The nice thing about this Sunscreen is that it’s not greasy, it’s super lightweight, my skin absorbs this easily and has no discerning scent. This also prevents me from getting sunburned and it’s not sticky while I sweat or stay under the sun. Definitely a great sunscreen if you have a sensitive skin, or if you just want an all-around good sunscreen that won’t irritate your nose. It’s kinda pricey for a sunscreen though, but you can tell that it’s good quality.

 

Supergoop! Super Power Sunscreen Mousse Broad Spectrum Spf 50 (3.4 oz: $19; 7.1 oz: $34) – A very different sunscreen that comes out as a mousse which spreads really well on the skin. It’s extremely lightweight and has a bit of a cooling or refreshing feel. It also has a nice light floral scent with antioxidants and is also water-resistant. The dispenser can be a bit tricky or difficult to use, and even though the mousse/foam, which feels like a shaving cream, was very spreadable, it kinda feels a bit greasy, but it disappears and melts into the skin easily. I usually use this for the body, but a lot of people also use this on their face. This gives me good coverage under the sun while it’s also fun to apply. The only problem is that because its packaging is pressurized, you’re not gonna be able to carry this when you travel.

 

Alba Botanica Hawaiian Sunscreen Broad Spectrum Spf 30 in Aloe Vera (4 oz: $6.50) – I’ve always enjoyed this organic and water-resistant affordable sunscreen, plus, it’s pretty much easy to find. I like that this feels like a moisturizing lotion and it melts into my skin very well without leaving a white cast and it’s non-greasy. This scent can be a bit too sweet, like sweet lemons, but it’s not a bad fruity scent. It reminds me of Caudalie Foot Beauty Cream’s scent, but this one is great for sensitive skin with no parabens, no harsh sulfates, and made of 100% vegetarian ingredients. It’s a cheap but effective suncare.

 

Coola Sport Continuous Spray Broad Spectrum Spf 50 in Guava Mango

 

Coola Sport Continuous Spray Broad Spectrum Spf 50 in Guava Mango & Spf 30 in Citrus Mimosa (3.4 oz: $24, 8 oz: $36) – Probably one of the best (if not the best) scented spray sunscreens I’ve ever tried. Made of organic ingredients, antioxidant-infused, and water resistant for 80 minutes. These sunscreens are ideal for just about any activity you want to do under the sun. I use this for running, hiking, and gardening. It doesn’t feel sticky even after I sweat a lot. I also never get sunburned with this, and it gets absorbed by my skin rather easily, plus it leaves no white residue whatsoever. In addition to that, the sprayer sprays evenly and finely onto the skin making it easy to spread and apply all over the arms and legs. Further reviewed HERE.

 

Coppertone Sport Continuous Spray Broad Spectrum Spf 70

 

Coppertone Sport Continuous Spray Broad Spectrum Spf 70 (6 oz: $8.99) – One of the first ever sport sunscreen I’ve ever used, and it’s supposed to be made of high-performance formulations-antioxidants, water-resistant for 80 minutes, supposed to stay on your skin even after you sweat, and won’t run into your eyes and sting. Oh well, if I had not tried other sport sunscreens, I would have thought that all sunscreens are as sticky and strong-smelling as this. This particular sunscreen feels a bit thick and greasy upon application, and it gets even greasier once you start sweating with it. It almost feels gross, like your skin cannot breathe and it feels a bit hot. The nice thing about this is that it has a very high Spf, otherwise, there’s definitely other sunscreens that are better than this.

 

Clarins Sunscreen Care Oil Spray Broad Spectrum Spf 30 (5 oz: $36) – This was a hit for me the moment I first sprayed this on my skin. That powdery-floral scent could last for a good 4-6 hours and I never get tired of it. This spray has a very “summer on the beach” vibe, and it’s also great to spray on your hair to protect it from drying when exposed to a lot of sun and also from salt water. This is definitely my favorite suncare oil spray because it’s not greasy, it disappears into the skin easily, it leaves no white cast, and it protects me from the sun. I wish it has a higher Spf, but so far, I never had a sunburn or redness with this.

 

Top Care Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum Spf 50 (8 oz: $5.99) – Found this at my local supermarket when I was in sudden need of a sunscreen. This may be hard to find online nowadays, but I’m pretty sure you might find this in your local grocery stores. This was an impulse buy for me and I picked this not knowing anything about this particular product or brand at all. Of course, I had other choices, like Coppertone and Neutrogena, but after my experience with Coppertone’s Sport Continuous Spray, I felt like, Nah, I’m gonna have to pass. Also, I love Neutrogena products, but their sunscreens are too thick and too sticky for me. They also leave a white cast on my face and skin to the point that I looked like Casper. LOL. So, I picked this Top Care sunscreen and much to my surprise, I actually love it. It’s very moisturizing and it goes through my skin easily. I also love the delightful clean scent. It feels just like a lightweight lotion and it’s not greasy. I really like this a lot.

 

FACE

 

Algenist Sublime Defense Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid Spf 50, Clarins UV Plus Anti-Pollution Sunscreen Multi-Protection Broad Spectrum Spf 50 Non-Tinted

 

Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Cream Broad Spectrum Spt 50+ Wetforce For Face (1.2 oz: $22, 2 oz: $36) – This sunscreen smells so good and a little bit goes a long way when it comes to its application. A tiny dot is pretty much all you need for your face because this feels very concentrated and thick for a facial lotion. It also tends to leave a bit of white cast on the face, but it goes away after a few minutes, still, you’re gonna have to go easy on this. I like that this is hydrating and very lightweight. Also, this sunscreen kinda makes my face a bit luminous or slightly dewy. It’s also water-activated, so this becomes even more effective when exposed to water or sweat. So far, I also never get a sunburn or even a tan from this. Another big hit for me.

 

EltaMD UV Clear Broad Spectrum Spf 46 (1.7 oz: $32.50) – A sunscreen that’s ideal for people with sensitive skin, especially to those who are acne-prone, has rosacea or even has discolorations or hyperpigmentations. While this claimed to not leave any residue, I still somehow noticed a bit of a white cast on my face. Also, this sunscreen tends to pill with time, but it’s very lightweight and fragrance-free. With that being said, this sunscreen has a very strong Spf scent that you could smell like it for the entire day, which can be really overwhelming on the nose. However, this never gave me any breakouts, and it is indeed great for sensitive skin. I also never had a sunburn while using this, perhaps, just a bit of tan, but this can feel a bit sticky when you sweat. You also need to reapply this a lot whenever you’re in a hot and humid place, or even when you’re sweating in your face a lot. I also find this to be too pricey for its Spf and for its packaging size, but I like its silky texture and it could almost look dewy on the face.

 

Coola Classic Face Sport Broad Spectrum Spf 50 in White Tea (1.7 oz: $32) – Nice and clean tea-floral scent that’s ideal for any skin types. It’s water-resistant for 80 minutes, super lightweight, and non-greasy. This organic suncare and moisturizer don’t leave a white residue on the face, and it almost has a gel-like texture. It goes onto the skin easily and I never felt any greasiness nor stickiness. This even goes well with any foundation and it’s hydrating on the face. Also, this feels soothing, and it’s meant to reduce redness and balance the skin tone. To me, this is great overall Spf moisturizer that truly delivers what it’s supposed to do. Further reviewed HERE.

 

Algenist Sublime Defense Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid Spf 50 (1 oz: $28) – This is a lightweight sheer fluid that spreads easily on the skin and you don’t need to apply a lot of it. It also has Alguronic acid and antioxidants with an oil-free formulation that’s supposed to give a matte finish upon application. While I like this a lot when I tried this in store and thought that it also had a pleasing vanilla-ish scent, Oh well, when I finally tried this at home, I was surprised by its strong awful glue-like smell. I almost couldn’t stand it and wanted to throw it away, but as I spread it all over my face, the scent sorta disseminated and became bearable. This also feels greasy but it settled on my skin somehow and though it didn’t really look mattifying on the face, it’s still ok under foundation. I think you could for sure find other face sunscreens that are much better than this.

 

Clarins UV Plus Anti-Pollution Sunscreen Multi-Protection Broad Spectrum Spf 50 Non-Tinted (1.7 oz: $43) – This is one of the best facial sunscreens I’ve ever tried. I just love that mild, clean, and irresistible scent. This goes on smoothly on my skin and it doesn’t feel greasy because it’s oil-free. It’s hydrating but not so dewy, and it’s great to go under makeup. I also noticed a mattifying effect on my skin, regardless of what foundation I use. I love that this fights free radicals and shields the skin from pollution. Also, this feels extremely lightweight, doesn’t leave a white cast on the face, and it doesn’t sting the eyes.

Eye Makeup Brushes Roundup, Part 2

What’s Up All! Happy Friday! We have another eye makeup brush review today. In fact, this is the part 2 of that previous eye brushes review that I did a couple of days ago. To read the first part, click HERE. To continue with that said review, some of the following brushes that I’m gonna talk about below have been with me for quite some time. I always reach out for them and they’ve withstood regular cleaning plus my heavy-handedness, ha!. There’s even one brush that took on a different function or purpose other than what it’s meant to be.

 

eye brushes review

 

Here are the rest of my favorite eye makeup brushes roundup.

 

Anastasia Beverly Hills #7B Brush review

Anastasia Beverly Hills #7B Brush ($18): Been with me for more than 2 years now and it still looks good as new. This is a dual-ended angled flat brush on one side and a nice little spooley on the other. A brow brush that you can use together with Anastasia’s Dipbrow Pomade. It creates a beautiful, precise, and sleek brow. I love the spooley of this brush because it’s durable and it also grabs and arranges each hair strand neatly.

 

 Lancome Large Shadow Brush #11

It Brushes for Ulta Airbrush Blending Crease Brush #105 ($14): Owned this for more than a year now. This is my brush that took a different career path, LOL. While this is a very good soft blending brush especially for the crease, this can also do other things. Guess what? I use this brush to contour or highlight my nose, and even to highlight my brow bone and this does a really good job at it. It’s so soft and the bristles are a bit spread out, thus the versatility.

Lancome Large Shadow Brush #11 ($29.50): Had for a year, don’t be fooled by its description, this particular brush is not really large. It’s about the same size as any eyeshadow/eyeshader brush, perhaps just 1 or 2 mm longer. I always confuse this particular eyeshadow brush with my other E.l.f. eye brushes, but mind you, this brush is way better than E.l.f.’s. This picks up the right amount of product and it’s soft and durable for daily use.

 

It Brushes for Ulta Airbrush Blending Crease Brush #105

 

 

MAC Brushes (7 years & counting):

 

MAC Eye Shader Brush #239 review

 

MAC Eye Shader Brush #239 ($25): This was my first MAC brush ever and I love its shape a lot. I like that it’s great at packing on some colors on my lids and its bristles are dense, soft, and strong, but not too long. Great for overall eye shading.

 

MAC Blending Brush #217 review

 

MAC Pencil Brush #219 ($25): Bought this to create a smokey eye, but I also use this to contour my lids and apply highlighters on my inner crease. This is a very versatile pen-shaped brush. Also, the brush’s shape is meant to be precise and not itchy.

 

MAC Pencil Brush #219 review

 

MAC Blending Brush #217 ($25): My most used and overused MAC brush of all. Its unique shape is some sort of a slightly flat blending brush which makes it easier to blend the eyeshadows precisely, making the effect more natural. Definitely not like your most blending brush, and it works like a charm.

 

There you have it guys, these are so far my favorite eye and brow makeup brushes. If you ask me which brushes I’d recommend for eye makeup, definitely my top 3 brands would be Make Up For Ever, Sigma, and MAC.

 

Lancome Brushes can be found at Lord & Taylor, Bergdorf Goodman, Dillard’s, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, & Ulta.com

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brushes are available at Sephora, Ulta, Nordstrom & Urban Outfitters

Mac Brushes are available at Nordstrom, & Selfridges

The It Brushes for Ulta are available at Ulta.com

 

Do you also own any of these brushes? What are the brush/brushes you’ve been crushing on lately?
