Fenty Beauty Review for Oily Skin


When I heard that Rihanna was coming out with a Makeup line, I was so excited because, first, I love Rihanna and I love the way she wears her makeup.  So, I picked up some items that I knew I was going to use daily and she knocked it out of the park with this launch..........

Before she was BadGalRiRi: music, fashion and beauty icon, Robyn Rihanna Fenty was a little girl in Barbados transfixed by her mother’s lipstick. The first time she experienced makeup for herself, she never looked back. Makeup became her weapon of choice for self-expression—a way to radiate her ever-changing mood—and it powered a fearless take on beauty that helped her become the boundary-breaking icon she is today.
Rihanna was inspired to create Fenty Beauty after years of experimenting with the best-of-the-best in beauty—and still seeing a void in the industry for products that performed across all skin types and tones. She launched a makeup line “so that women everywhere would be included,” focusing on a wide range of traditionally hard-to-match skin tones, creating formulas that work for all skin types, and pinpointing universal shades.
Fenty Beauty products are designed to feel lightweight, even as they deliver buildable coverage that effortlessly layers, to ultimately “make skin look like skin.” Most importantly, Rihanna creates makeup to inspire: “Makeup is there for you to have fun with,” she says. “It should never feel like pressure. It should never feel like a uniform. Feel free to take chances, and take risks, and dare to do something new or different.”
The first item I tried was the Soft Matte Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Instant Retouch Primer ($32.00) and the Soft Matte Pro Filt'r Longwear Foundation ($34.00) in the shade: 410:

Both come in simple design frosted glass pump bottle with 1.08 Fl Oz (32 ML):

When I used the primer, it came out as a lotion type of cream with a pinkish tint to it.  It was pretty easy and smooth to apply and it didn't feel greasy.  It didn't clog my pores and with the pinkish tint, I didn't look ashy.  Then, I used the Foundation, and off the bat, this is one of my favorite products.  It applied so smooth (like it melted into my skin) and I loved the coverage (medium coverage for me).  It was so lightweight that it felt like I didn't have anything on.  It also made my face look natural with a soft matte finish and it was soft on the skin.  This was a perfect match for my skin tone (I didn't have to mix this with other foundations to match my color) and it lasted all day.

Next, I use the Match Stix Trio to conceal, contour, and highlight:

Each Match Stix comes in a plastic twist-up container with 0.25 oz (7.10 g) of product.  Each Match Stix cost $25.00 or you can purchase the trio for $54.00 (I purchased the Tan 300 Match Stix trio):

What I love about this trio is that it gives me natural looking contour without looking overdone.  It applied very smooth and blended out very beautifully.  It is also matte with is a plus for me.  I didn't have any problems with creasing and just like the foundation, it lasted all day.  I also like the design with these with the built-in magnet that holds all three together.

The last thing that I tried from this collection was the Universal Lip Luminizer Gloss Bomb ($18.00) and it comes in a 0.30 oz (9 ML) plastic bottle:

This is basically a glossy lip gloss with a little peachy tint to it.  It has a fruity-vanilla smell (peach and vanilla from her website) which is nice but it's not overpowering.  The gloss applied nicely and it wasn't sticky at all.  It is very lightweight and it kept my lips very moisturized.  I used this on its own but you can definitely add this on top of any lipstick for nice glossy touch:

Overall, I love the collection and I plan to purchase more from the original collection pretty soon. Out of all the products, I recommend the foundation the most because it looks so nice on the skin.  I will say that it may not work for anyone that has dry skin since this is marketed as a matte foundation.  One product that I liked (but not loved) and will probably not purchase again is the primer.  While it did apply nice and helped my makeup last all day, it just didn't have enough oil control for me.

So Rihanna....a huge round of applause for you because girl you did that..........

You can purchase Fenty Beauty from her website or from Sephora.
