Probably one of the most anticipated launches of 2017!!! When word got out that Rihanna was coming out with a makeup line...HYSTERIA!
I fell into the celebrity hype a few times, (purchased Kylie cosmetics *COUGH COUGH*). After being disappointed, I decided to give the famous makeup a rest. Peeping the Fenty Beauty news on Instagram, I instantly forgot about my decision to stop buying celebrity brands.
Rihanna leaked a highlighter that was pure gold. And soon after, foundation shades. SEVERAL FOUNDATION SHADES. It was the fact that a brand new makeup line was launching with 40 shades, that people were going through the roof with excitement. Cool undertones, olive undertones, warm undertones, all the undertones! Rihanna made sure to hit every part of the skin shade spectrum-- from the palest to the darkest. And low and behold, the majority of deeper shades are sold out in most Sephora stores. Not only in her Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Foundation, but in her Matchstix Foundation line as well. I bought a couple of things 😅 and here is a full blown first impressions 👇🏾

I played with the products for a week or so, and figured out how to get the best results from them. I purchased a second shade, because I thought #360 was too olive on its own. The yellow undertone from #330 balanced it out, and I didn't look as green. I also combined "Metal Moon" and "Trophy Wife", which gave me a more user friendly highlight for everyday. "Trophy Wife" on its own with my skin tone made me look like I was in a trophy case! Check out how I apply Fenty Beauty 2nd time around
