Fenty Beauty


Anyone that knows me knows I love RiRi, all the way from Pon De Replay.

And my god look how far she's come. When Fenty Beauty did their UK launch Autumn 2017 in Harvey Nichols the hype was MAD! Security at the make up desks, hours of queuing and people would get to the front only for products to be out of stock. I mean, for Ri the hype was successful and had everyone talking. However, I admit, I wasn’t putting myself through it all to try some makeup.

BUT May 10th 2019 she launched in Boots UK and I knew it was time. I headed straight to the Canary Wharf branch after work to join the new hyper’s, who finally had the products so easily accessible to them. And now over 2 months later I’m still loving Fenty Beauty.

Firstly, although this brand is now established and been out awhile and even me, myself have been using now for 2 months. I have to say I can't really judge make up on my first use. It’s not until a few weeks later where I can tell if its still working for me. If it still does its job and my skin doesn’t begin to react negatively to it. And thankfully Fenty Beauty and me and been going strong for weeks now.

So, what’s been working for me and why;

Fenty Beauty PRO FILT'R Soft Matte Longwear Foundation;

For my contour I use 2 shades of foundation, a light shade for the highlighted areas and something to match my skin tone for the contouring. This Pro Filt’r Soft Matte foundation is amazingggg. I personally love a Matte finish, I’m not into the dewy look. I want smooth full coverage, and this is exactly what I got with this. You don’t need to use a lot of it either, it can be quite heavy so just a small amount will go a long way. I recommend shaking the bottle every time before you use to make sure the pigment colours and oils are mixed well before you apply. It is extremely long lasting, and never have I had to reapply my makeup during the day using this. 2 months in and I’m still on my first bottles, bearing in mind I probably use this at least 5 times a week. I Definitely will be repurchasing once they do run out.

Shades I use:
180 for Highlight
310 for Contour

Boots: £27.00


Fenty Beauty Sun Stalk'r Instant Warmth Bronzer

Possibly the best bronzer I’ve used. Again, providing me with a gorgeous matte finish over my foundation. I enhance my contour with this beauty to give me the glow I’m looking for and its so easily buildable without overdoing it. There isn’t nothing worse than your bronzer being a standard tone, that just makes you look orange. The colours that this bronzer comes in do not do that if you pick the right shade for you. It doesn’t leave powder falling all over the place when you apply and again you only need to apply this once. I don’t think I’ve ever had a bronzer that I haven’t reapplied at some point in the day. This is now running low, so I think I’ll be back to buy some more in the next week or so but for a purchase date of over 2 months ago you can’t go wrong.

Shade I use:
Private Island

Boots: £23.00


Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo

With all that Matte, I need a little shine. And the Killawatt highlighter Duo does exactly that. I add a little shimmer to my nose, cheeks and outer forehead to build on the contour affect and boost the glowing look. This is perfect to build on allowing you to add as much or as little shimmer as you want to from the day to day looks, to your shining nights out. I love this product as my final touch that brings my make up to life. I think this will last me a long time, as the usage is minimum for me.

Shade I use:
Mo’Hny / Aftrn Snack

Boots: £28.00

So all in all, I have to say I’m still in love with Fenty Beauty after my 2 months testing. It hasn’t treated me badly and my skin seems to love it too.

I cant forget to mention the tones and shades that Rihanna has provided with this line. They truly are incredible. Even with myself, being able to find make up with the perfect yellow undertones to match my skin. The foundations come in 50 shades in such a wide range of colours and under tones for all our beautiful skin colours. It’s a brand that honestly does not leave anyone feeling left out, her bronzers and powders also provide the same great diversity and the buildable affect that allows you to create exactly what you need. Boots UK I have to say thank you for making the product so easily accessible and Rhianna thank you for creating such a masterpiece make up line.
