I have yet to try anything from Fenty Beauty by Rihanna.
Okay, so that’s technically a lie since I literally just tried stuff from the brand. But the point I’m trying to get across here is that considering how much makeup I own, I’m very new to Rihanna’s makeup line.
Now don’t get my wrong, it’s not that I didn’t want to try anything, but since I own like 10 million of every makeup product there is, I just didn’t feel the need to buy anything. There’s also the fact that it’s a makeup line owned by a celebrity. Although these lines are currently killing it in the makeup game, I’ve always found them to be very short term in that they stick around for a few years and then fade into oblivion when the artist moves onto something else.
Well, I hope that Rihanna never stops caring since her makeup line is bomb.
New to the line is the Moroccan Spice collection, which officially launched in early July and consists of five items: an eyeshadow palette, an eyeshadow primer, an eyeliner, and two brushes. This collection was inspired by the pink and gold sands of the Sahara and the metallic blues of Morocco. Although I didn’t get the stunning eyeshadow palette, the brand was super kind and sent over the eyeshadow primer and the eyeliner.
The Pro Filt’r Amplifying Eye Primer is a neutral pink-toned primer that boosts colour, extends wear, and is weightless, smoothing, and creaseproof. The product goes on super creamy and blends out to a neutral colour that is perfect for an eyeshadow base. The applicator makes it super easy to apply the product on your eyes and I usually just use my finger to blend it all out.
I’m usually not that picky when it comes to eyeshadow primers, but this one is seriously one of the best I have ever used. There is a noticeable difference when you even apply the colour to your lids. In the photos below, I only applied the product to my left eye and even the way the shadows felt as they went on was different compared to the lid without it. With this primer, the shadows stick on the lids (even through a workout and a shower), and the colour appears more vibrant.
Speaking of staying all day, the Flyliner Longwear Liquid Eyeliner is also no joke. This liquid eyeliner didn’t excite me at first since I have a million liquid eyeliners already. Well, this one literally does not move. Again, wearing this throughout a workout (a sweaty spin class, at that) and a shower, I was shocked to find it still perfect on my eyelids. This eyeliner, available in one shade – ‘Cause I’m Black – is a super saturated liquid pen liner that paints the colour on deep and doesn’t budge.
The pen of the liner itself is a triangle shape, which makes it easy to hold. The super-flex tip provides a smooth line that doesn’t dry out or skip, and delivers opaque colour for the most dramatic look.
Overall, aside from the deep black colour this gives you, I do find it to be like other eyeliners. The real wow factor is the staying power. I still can’t get over how well this holds up. Seriously, like all my makeup will be gone, but with both the Pro Filt’r and the Flyliner, the eye makeup is perfect.
I really hope that Fenty Beauty comes out with more colours in the Flyliner since it’s such an amazing product. Also, the prices on these items aren’t too bad either, C$25 for the eyeliner and C$28 for the eye primer, which is amazing compared to similar products out there.
In the photos above, I have both the primer and eyeliner on the left eye. The top one was taken right after I did my makeup at around 8:15 a.m., and the second one was taken at 7 p.m. after a day at work and then a step class (lots of sweating). As you can see, the products on the left eye are still flawless, whereas, although there is still shadow and liner on the right eye, it’s not as vibrant.
I mean, at this point I don’t have to spell it out for you, but I absolutely recommend these products, especially for summer time when you’ll need your makeup to stick the most. Fenty Beauty is exclusive to Sephora, so make sure you pop in and try them out yourself. As for actually removing the product, don’t worry, a little micellar solution ended up taking it all off, so it wasn’t that hard to remove ;).
Have you tried any items from Fenty Beauty? What are your thoughts?
