There are a few brands that consistently perform well in my opinion. One of those brands is Fenty Beauty.
I’ve tried a lot of items from the line (probably the majority of them at this point), and although I can think of some products that I didn’t like, the overwhelming majority of them have been fantastic. Plus the price point of Fenty is really affordable considering it’s a brand found at Sephora.
Fenty also has a skincare line, which I haven’t dabbled too much into just yet, but the products I have tried, I have really enjoyed. Thankfully they do have some skincare sets for the holidays which gives you a great chance to try out numerous products from the brand.
Here are some of my top picks from both Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin…
Double Cheek’d Up: Freestyle Cream Blush Duo
Fenty Beauty are known for their cream products so the Double Cheek’d Up: Freestyle Cream Blush Duo (C$44 valued at $56) is a great item to gift or to keep for yourself!
This limited-edition duo contains two cream blushes in shades Peony Droppa (soft peony pink) and Mali’booze (soft warm rose). Housed in one compact side by side, these blushes melt into skin to leave you with a natural looking flush that suits all skin tones. The great thing about these is that they are sheer and buildable. They are also creamy, soft, and sweat and water resistant.
The compact itself is their special holiday version which is a gorgeous metallic fuchsia. This would be great to use in the winter weather to keep cheeks hydrated and flushed, as well as for your beach vacation.
Fenty Match Stix Contour Stick
Although the Fenty Match Stix Contour Sticks aren’t special for the holidays, they are a great add-on if you are gifting the cream blush duo.
These matte contour sticks (C$36) come in nine shades and are a buildable cream to powder formula.
A matte contour stick in a range of shades for all skin tones from light to dark. The buildable cream-to-powder long-wear formula is lightweight and blendable. Housed in a retractable stick, this product is easy to apply, targeting areas that need a little bronzer or definition.
These bronzers are also a medium coverage, meaning you can build up the colour to your ideal level of bronze. I love these and also love to use them underneath a powder bronzer to build up my contour or add some warmth to my face.
Glossy Posse Volume 5.0 Lip Gloss Bomb Trio
Another star item in the Fenty Beauty line are their glosses and if you are a fan (or have someone on your list who is one), then you’ll have to grab the Glossy Posse Volume 5.0 Lip Gloss Bomb Trio (C$49, $84 value).
This set includes three Gloss Bomb shades in all different finishes. There is the Gloss Bomb Heat Universal Lip Luminizer + Plumper in Fenty Glow, a sheer rose nude; the Gloss Bomb Cream Color Drip Lip Cream in Cupcakin’ (dusty pink); and Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in Fuchsia Flex (shimmering berry).
I love this set since it allows you to try three of the Gloss Bomb finishes – pumping, cream, and sparkle, all at an amazing pice (almost half off!).
Fenty Skin The Glow Around 4-Piece Travel Skincare Essentials Set
Moving onto Fenty Skin, this is actually a line that I have been very curious about but haven’t dabbled too much into.
If you ave someone on your list like me, or you want to try it, or have a trip coming up where you want travel minis, then you’ll love the Fenty Skin The Glow Around 4-Piece Travel Skincare Essentials Set (on sale right now for C$54 at Sephora, valued at $113).
This set includes travel sizes of her cleanser, toner, and moisturizer, as well as the full size of her exfoliator (which I have tried and love).
Ideal for normal, dry, combination, and oily skin, this skincare set is great for those who have issues with dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles, pores and dullness. Included in here are travel sizes of the Total Cleans’r Remove-It-All Cleanser (45 ml), Fat Water Pore-Refining Toner Serum (50 ml), and the Hydra Vizor Invisible Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 (30 ml). As mentioned, you also get the full size of the Pre-Show Glow, which is a 10% AHA exfoliating treatment that visibly brightens skin and reduces the look of pores and dark spots.
I think this set is amazing value and the sizes of these products are also quite hefty, so even if you haven’t tried this line before, it gives you a good idea of how these items will work with your skin. The only thing that is missing in here is a good eye cream, which is an item she has in her line. Regardless, I still think this set is awesome and love how you get the full-size of the Pre-Show Glow as well, which retails for C$52 alone, so for two dollars more, you get that product plus all the travel sizes of the other products.
Cookies N Clean Whipped Clay Pore Detox Face Mask with Salicylic Acid + Charcoal
Finally, this last item isn’t a holiday-special product, but it’s a newer item in the Fenty Skin line and one that I think would make a great gift as well.
The Cookies N Clean Whipped Clay Pore Detox Face Mask with Salicylic Acid + Charcoal (C$42) is a non-drying whipped clay mask that contains charcoal to deeply purify pores and improve skin’s texture and combat shine.
This mask is great for all types of skin types and works wonders for those who have issues with pores, uneven texture, and oiliness. The formula contains clay to extract dirt, oil, and impurities, as well as charcoal to detoxify pores and absorb oil and impurities. Finally, it also has salicylic acid to clarify and refine skin.
This mask legit looks like cookies and cream (but unfortunately it doesn’t smell like it since it’s unscented, great for those who have scent allergies) and has a whipped texture to it. Grab a small handful and work it into your skin, where you’ll notice that the charcoal beads break down leaving you with a grey-coloured mask on your face. Leave it on for a few minutes and then rinse. Apply it a few times a week for the best results.
I love this mask and think it would make a great gift for someone (who doesn’t love a face mask!?). Plus, the cookies and cream and whipped texture make it so fun and luxe.
There are a bunch of other Fenty Skin and Fenty Beauty products to choose from for the holiday season but I really love these choices since they are great items from the brand.
