When Fenty Beauty,  owned by famous singer, Rhianna launched in the UK in 2017 like most makeup enthusiasts and bloggers, I was intrigued by the brand and wanted to try some of the products but nothing really jumped out at me enough for me to purchase anything at that time.

The range was initially heavily complexion based, but has since been expanded and now includes an array of products including eye and lip products, and there has since been the launch of Fenty Skin and Fenty Skin Body too.

I have since tried quite a few products from the skincare range and the makeup range but today I am going to share my thoughts, my hits and misses from the products I have from the makeup range with you.   

Match Stix Contour Skinstick

Fenty describes the Skinstick as a "Longwear, light-as-air matte contour stick in a range of shades for all skin tones." and I'd say this is an accurate description of the product. 

I have the Match Stix Contour Skinstick in the shade Amber which is described as a "cool undertone for fair skin tones" This is the perfect shade for me. I do have a cool undertone to my skin and I am fair skinned too and this shade is brilliant. Skinstick is available in 9 different shades which is great, the whole range of Fenty skin products is available in a vast range of shades to suit all skin tones, I would say they have the best range of shades available to suit many different skin tones, and other brands really do need to take note.

The contour stick comes in excellent sleek coloured packaging and is easy to use. To enable you to get the product out, you twist it from the base and the product comes out, it does twist back down too. To apply, I just pop a little where I want it on my face and then blend it in with a damp Marshmallow Sponge from Coco Cosmetics by Chloe, but you can use any makeup sponge or a brush, whatever you prefer. You don't need to use a lot of product,  and the match stix blends in beautifully to my skin and gives a lovely finish.  I have also used it on my eyes and it makes a lovely cream eyeshadow too, which is brilliant for travelling and not wanting to take too many products.

I had never really been someone who contoured their face when doing my makeup, but I received the skinstick as a gift and I am so grateful as I have used it so much since and I absolutely love it, I wouldn't say I particularly contour my face as such but I love to use it as a cream bronzer and to also add some definition to my face, but I doubt any makeup artists would call it contouring!

Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Colour

I had seen a couple of people speak about the Stunna Lip Paint and since I like liquid lipsticks I thought I'd try one, Fenty described them as "Weightless, long wear liquid lipstick with a soft matte finish in head-turning shades that look incredible on all skin tones." I chose the shade Unattached which is described as "bright coral". If you are a regular reader of my blog or you know me personally, you will know that coral lip shades are my favourite, along with pinks, so it was inevitable I was going to choose Unattached.

The lip paint comes in lovely packaging, with a clear plastic base showing the lip paint and a pointed gold coloured lid, which has Fenty Beauty written on it. The applicator is like nothing I've used before, it isn't a doe foot applicator, it's more of an hourglass shape, but it makes applying the lip paint effortless.

The lip paint is a matte formula, and it can feel a little drying should you apply too much, so I tend to build it up and if it is feeling a touch drying, I add lip balm and it's perfect, but for the most part, it feels fine and it is so long lasting, I wore it recently on an evening out with my family and we had food and drinks, and then I had another drink later and when I got home around 6.5 hours after application, it was still there and still looked ok, not as it did when I first applied it, but it was fine and didn't look a mess.

I love the Stunna Lip Paint, my only complaint is, that it isn't available in more shades, especially bright shades.

Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush
Having dry skin, I love to use cream products when applying my makeup and I have amassed quite a collection of cream base products, especially cream blush. When I saw the Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush swatches, I fell in love and knew I definitely needed to try one, asap.  

Described by Fenty as "Light-as-air cream blush that easily melts into the skin for a kiss of colour for every skin tone" the Freestyle Cream Blushes are just beautiful, I have the shade Strawberry Drip, which in the pan looks scarily bright red, but on the cheeks, it blends out to a beautiful pink flush of colour that lasts all day.

I really like the packaging of the blush, the case is an octagonal shaped plastic case with gold writing on the lid, and inside the lid, there is a mirror that fills the space and is a good size and I can use it, which sometimes isn't the case with some makeup products with a built in mirror.

I apply the cream blush using my finger to dab it on my cheeks, and then I blend it out using my damp makeup sponge, I have used a brush too but my preferred method is to use a makeup sponge. I absolutely adore the blush and will 100% be adding the shades Crush On Cupid and Petal Popping to my collection. My youngest daughter has the shade Petal Poppin and it is beautiful.

Liquid Killawat Fluid Freestyle Highlighter

Liquid highlighters are something I haven't really tried too many of, maybe 3 or 4? But when I got the Liquid Killawatt Fluid Freestyle Highlighter I was really looking forward to trying it, especially as I heard a lot of really good things about it from reading blog posts about it. 

I have the shade Sidekick, which is the palest shade, the highlighter like all the Fenty products has nice packaging, it comes in a tube like packaging with a pattern and writing on it in white and an octagonal shaped lid. The nozzle on the tube is quite small but I prefer that as otherwise it could be easy to squeeze too much product out.

The highlighter is described by Fenty as a " Lightweight, high-shine liquid highlighter that hugs the skin with a modern, transfer-resistant glow". It is easy to apply, I apply it in the same way as I do the blush, by dabbing a small amount to the tops of my cheeks and blending it out with either a makeup sponge or a brush.

I really wanted to love the highlight, but I don't like it at all, it is glittery with not much else there and has a gold colour to it and is just not right at all for my colouring and far too sparkly, if you like a sparkly highlight I think you'd like it, but it is just not for me at all. I have tried it a fair few times now but I seem to dislike it more each time.

I was so disappointed the first time I used it after all the other products being so lovely, I had such high hopes but my hopes were soon dashed when I resembled a disco ball come Christmas card in one, it's definitely not for me, but we are all different and you may love it.

Bright Fix Eye Brightener
Last but by no means least, we have the Bright Fix Eye Brightener described by Fenty as an "under eye brightener that easily hydrates, brightens, and conceals. Sheer to buildable coverage". I have the shade Rose Quartz which is the palest of the shades available and is described as "Cool pink to brighten and colour correct for light skin tones" which does sound perfect for my skin tone.  

Rose Quartz has a peachy colour to it and I suffer from dark circles, a combination of genetics and having deep set eyes and high cheekbones, plus no sleep and then throw in a ridiculous amount of pain and there it is, dark circles. But with that combination and dark circles,  I do like to use a peachy toned corrector as I find it is the best shade type for me.

If you are choosing your shade online, it is quite simple to do, all the shades are listed but if you would rather, you can select a shade from the categories, light, light -medium, medium, medium -deep or deep. 

I love the packaging of the eye brightener, it's a peachy coloured tube with a clear plastic rollerball type applicator, meaning you can squeeze the tube a little then roll the product under the eyes, then tap in with your ring finger, or you can use a brush or makeup sponge, whatever your preference.

Once again, I really thought I was going to love this product, but sadly I do not, I just cannot get on with it. The shade is so pale that I look ill when I use it, don't get me wrong I am naturally very fair skinned but it gives me Caspar vibes. Had I had one of the deeper shades, it would have been too yellow toned and probably too dark for me. The consistency is also not right for me, it's hard to explain but it's thicker than I expected but then a little does go a long way so if you do like it, it should last you a while.  It dries to a matte finish which looks terrible on me, and accentuates any fine lines I have, which is something I'd rather avoid if possible.  

The shade, the consistency and the finish it gives on the skin are all wrong for me, but I suppose not all products are going to suit everyone and this is sadly just one of those products. 

However, if you think you would like the product, you can find it on the Fenty website HERE priced at £22.00. 

So, those are my Fenty Beauty makeup hits and misses from the items I have in my makeup bag. I do have a wishlist of some more makeup items from Fenty, so I shall let you know my thoughts once I am lucky enough to have added those to my collection. 

I do also have some products from the Fenty Skin range, so if you would like me to do a hits and misses of those items too, please let me know.
