Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Review

Happy Friday, loves! I hope you're all doing well. We're finally slowly drifting into autumn, one of my favorite seasons, and I could not be happier about that. I've already drank more pumpkin spice lattes this week than I care to admit...

That aside, I am so excited about today's post. I am sure the majority of you have all heard about Rihanna's new Fenty Beauty line (unless you live under a rock), and like many of you I was very intrigued. Her promise of 40 foundation shades was what initially drew me in; being a woman of color I usually find it extremely difficult to find a shade that matches me perfectly, especially one that has a decent amount of coverage and is not too cakey. I decided to try it and the Gloss Bomb out, so I went to my local Sephora because I decided ordering online would be too risky. The employee was so sweet; we discussed our favorite beauty gurus on YouTube while she shade-matched me between shades 420-440. We both ultimately decided on shade 430.

Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation

Claims: With 40 shades from the lightest of the light to the deepest of skin tones, this foundation claims to be a soft matte finish that gives buildable medium to full coverage.
My review: Rihanna, girl, I have to give you props for this foundation. Shade 430 ended up being a perfect match for my skin tone. Not only does it match me amazingly well, it is so skin-like that it almost looks and feels like I am not wearing foundation at all. Even my mom noticed how good my makeup looked when I wore it for the first time and commented that she wanted to try it as well! The consistency is slightly watery, but this does not affect the coverage. It also plays very well with the rest of my base makeup. The only con is that this foundation oxidizes a bit darker, so make sure you wait at least 2 to 3 minutes after applying it before you decide on a shade.

My rating: 4.5/5 ★★★★

Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer

Claims: The one universal shade, Fenty Glow, a rose nude, promises to look good on every skin tone and moisturize, all while making the lips appear fuller and smoother.
My review: I'm a gloss girl, so this product is right up my alley. The shade is beautiful and simply enhances the natural color of your lips with a bit of shimmer. It is long lasting (it lasted through my entire uni lecture and then some), and the slightly fruity scent is to die for. This gloss is not sticky whatsoever, which is an issue I have with most glosses. All around, I do believe it is a shade that would look great on anyone.

My rating: 5/5 ★★★★★
