Lips looking good: Fenty Beauty Fenty Icon Velvet Liquid Lipsticks and Fenty Skin Plush Puddin’ Intensive Recovery Lip Mask
If there is one brand on the lips of everyone right now it’s definitely Fenty Beauty.
I have been a huge fan of Fenty since the brand basically launched a few years ago. For the most part, I have absolutely loved every product I’ve tried, and considering the price points of the products, it’s fabulous quality for what you’re paying.
I love the brand so much that whenever they launch something new, I can’t wait to get my hands on it. One of their newest launches is the Fenty Icon Velvet Liquid Lipsticks (C$38). Available in five shades, these liquid lipsticks deliver a matte velvet finish with a formula that is long-wearing and incredibly comfortable.
Now usually matte liquid lipsticks can be drying, but not these. They feature a creamy, whipped texture that hugs lips and delivers pigmented intense colour on the first swipe. They also don’t dry out your lips or settle into fine lines. Colour stays rich and the texture feels comfortable and moisturizing on the lips.
Fenty Beauty sent me four of the five shades. There is Riri, a rose mauve nude; The MVP, a blue red; H.B.I.C., a deep garnet red; and Bread Winn’r, a chocolate brown nude. There is also C-Suite’Heart, a soft pink nude.
Overall I really like these and love how comfortable they feel on the lips. Because they are hydrating, they don’t quite dry down the same way that a matte liquid lipstick would, so I would be careful with colour transfer, which will happen since these shades are very bold. I do like how they feature a doe-foot applicator to apply them, making it easy to precisely apply the colour.
I also wish there were more shades and a greater array of colours. I’m not a huge red lipstick girl but I do think these are very nice shades of red and if you love a red lip then you’ll probably love the reds she chose to include in this collection.
Now since we are on the topic of Fenty lip products, I also want to mention the new Fenty Skin Plush Puddin’ Intensive Recovery Lip Mask (C$29).
This lip mask is infused with pomegranate sterols and vitamin E to give you super soft and plush lips. Housed in the cutest little peach container, pop off the top to reveal a flat surface where you twist the bottom to get the product dispensed. This balm instantly hydrates and nourishes lips, while also smoothing the texture of lips and reducing the look of lines and wrinkles. It also helps to firm lips and improve their elasticity. As a result, you are left with fuller-looking, more sculpted and defined lips.
This balm has a light vanilla scent and flavour and is colour-free. It does leave a clear sheen on the lips, which I find to look so flattering (and I feel like it makes your lips look bigger too). If you are a fan of the Laneige Lip Sleeping Masks then I know you will love these. I do find this Fenty lip mask to be a little on the thicker side but then it melts really nicely onto your lips once applied.
I also love the container since I find it’s easier to apply the product since it has a twist bottom. Of course it might not be the most hygienic if you are sharing lip balm with a friend, but as someone who always has to have a lip balm handy, the fact that I don’t need a little spatula to get the product is a huge plus for me.
I would recommend both of these new products from Fenty, especially the Fenty Skin Plush Puddin’ Intensive Recovery Lip Mask since I find it’s such a good lip balm that gives you hydrated lips for hours on end. For a great night out, the Fenty Icon would be a great choice as well.
