So iconic: Fenty Beauty Icon Semi-Matte lipsticks
If there is one makeup line that is consistently good in my eyes, it’s Fenty Beauty.
Okay, so there are a few things I didn’t love from the brand, but overall it’s been a huge hit for me. One of their standout products are all their lip items and recently they have introduced a new lineup of lipsticks, the Icon Semi-Matte lipstick.
Icon is a line up of high-pigment lip colours that have a, you guessed it, semi-matte finish. The shade range is a collection of 10 colours in reds and nudes, and the whole line is designed to be customizable since it’s a two-part product.
So these are actually sold as refillable bullets, which you put in the custom Icon case, sold separately or as a set. The formula itself is very creamy and just glides on the lips, hugging the curves and providing you with long-lasting wear.
The case itself (sold separately for C$15) comes in either rose gold or black metallic casing, which you twist at the bottom to reveal the product. Not gonna lie, this one took me a while and wasn’t the easiest thing to figure out, but once I got it, it was fine. The colours themselves retail for C$25 a pop, so if you buy them as a set it comes to C$45, which truthfully doesn’t quite make sense since if you purchase the two products separately you actually save $5…
Nevertheless, when it comes to the lipstick itself I actually really liked it. Fenty sent over two shades, MVP, which is a deep blue red, and Pose Queen, which is a neutral pink nude. I obviously threw Pose Queen into the case and it’s been my go-to lipstick for the last few weeks. I think both shades are really pretty and I find them nice to wear. They glide on easily, are creamy in texture, and last a while on the lips. The formula actually contains hyaluronic acid and vitamin C & E, which conditions the lips, so it’s a very comfortable wear on the lips.
I love the idea of these and also I adore the shade range. I know the whole customizable, refillable thing is kinda weird, but at the same time, it helps with waste and I love that once you buy the case it makes the future shades you buy in this line cheaper.
If you are a fan of Fenty’s lip products already, I would definitely take a look into getting one of these as well!
