Fenty Beauty First Impressions


It was just a typical night for me, lounging around scrolling through various snapchat stories with hopes I would come across something entertaining. And that I did, when I just so happen to click on Amrezy's snap story and peep she was at Rihanna's Fenty Beauty launch party! As I was living vicariously through Rezy's snaps I was so captivated by all the beautiful pieces Rihanna was releasing and taking mental notes of things I knew I had to have! So of course that Friday morning I got on Sephora and Fenty Beauty and purchased some goodies! Ordering from Sephora was a breeze, I got my Gloss Bomb and Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby within 3 days of making my purchase. It was a kool little incentive to get some free samples when ordering on Sephora, I ended up with a sample of the Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Primer. I went to my local Sephora to purchase the foundation; there was just to many shades to choose from online. I ordered the Match Stick Trio from Fenty Beauty because I liked how they gave you the option of customizing the trio, unlike Sephora where you only had 4 pre-selected combinations to choose from. 

  1.  Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Mean Money/Hu$tla baby - I love that Rihanna created a variety of highlighters when launching this line. In fact there was so many options I was struggling to pick which one I wanted! I was stuck between Trophy Wife and Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby, I opted for the Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby. This highlighter is bomb! It features 2 shades, Mean Money which is a soft champagne sheen and Hu$tla Baby which is a super charged peachy champagne shimmer. I love how this duo gives you the option of having a subtle shimmer or a more intense shimmer depending on your desire. It's very pigmented and applies to the skin smooth. I definitely want to invest in Trophy wife in the near future. If I had to recommend at least one item to pick up from the Fenty Beauty line it would be one of their BOMB highlighters!
  2. Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longer Foundation - Rihanna mentioned her goal with this foundation was for it to appear very skin like and natural. Let me just tell you Rihanna came through and did just that with this gem! The foundation is buildable from light to fuller coverage and is available in 40 different shades!!! I love that she didn't leave any tone out and made sure she had shades that would work for all skin tones. I picked up the shade 300 and it matches perfectly. 
  3. Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick Starstruck - My first thought when applying this was "It's not creamy what so ever", which is surprising to me because I was expecting a really creamy shimmer stick that glided and blended in with my skin easily. What was more surprising is that regardless of this product not being buttery it's super pigmented! The color pay off makes up for the consistency of the shimmer stick. I'm intrigued to check out the other shimmer skinsticks Rihanna has available as well. 
  4. Match Stix Matte Skinstick Mocha - In all honesty this is my first cream contour, so I really can't compare it to anything else. When I was applying it to my skin it was very creamy and super blendable! I was amazed by how the shade infused so well with my skin to create beautiful depth. I want to use this gem every time I do makeup now! I love this match stix.
  5. Match Stix Matte Skinstick Bamboo - I'm not to crazy about this match stix. It doesn't give enough coverage to be used alone as a concealer in my opinion. My dark circles were not as hidden as I would have like them to be. Typically before I apply concealer I color correct my dark circles, so that could also be a reason I didn't achieve my desired amount of coverage. I plan on trying it again in combination with my Becca Cosmetics Under Eye Brightening Corrector, so will see how that works out. Overall I like the consistency of the product, it's creamy and easy to apply. 
  6. Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer Fenty Glow - shimmering rose nude - My lip gloss be popping literally with this gem!!!! One of my favorite pick-ups from the Fenty Beauty Collection. I love that she made the bottle bigger, holding 0.30 fl oz of product. You won't have to worry about running out of this gloss anytime soon, unlike some other brands that typically give much less product. It's rose nude with a subtle shimmer which I love , its not just a plain gloss, it has a touch of color. It pairs very nice with a brown lip liner. 




Overall I'm very satisfied and impressed with the products I selected to purchase. When I initially heard about Rihanna working on a makeup line I didn't really know what to expect. I didn't know what type of products she would be launching, the variety or even when the launch would be actually happening. I was beyond happy when I seen Rihanna gave a variety of items to choose from. I'm really looking forward to seeing the additional products that Fenty Beauty will release in the future. I'm hoping for a few collections that really channel Rihannas personality and edginess. I'm hoping to see eye palettes, blushes, lipsticks, and even a powder bronzer from Fenty Beauty. Guess will just have to wait and see what else Rihanna has in store for us!

Hope you guys found this review informative and helpful! Have you purchased any Fenty Beauty products? Which pieces did you purchase?




Later babes,
xoxo

Uncle Funky's Daughter Full Product Review


I'm always excited when I get to try out new products for my hair! Uncle Funky's Daughter was kind enough to send me 6 products from their collection to try and review with you guys. I'll be honest I never heard of Uncle Funky's Daughter prior to trying these products and I'm not sure why because they are amazing!



I've listed out each product they sent me ( From left to right):
Rich & Funky Moisturizing Cleanser
Richie Rich Moisturizing Conditioner 
Defunk Hair Refresher Tonic 
Curly Magic Curl Stimulator
Good Hair Conditioning Creme
Glossy Finishing Hair Polish


Every one of their products I used worked great! The Rich & Funky Moisturizing Cleanser and  Richie Rich Moisturizing Conditioner  had my hair feeling nice and cleansed but still moisturized. The Good Hair Conditioning Creme is thick and creamy. It left my curls feeling very moisturized and soft. I love their Curly Magic Curl Stimulator! It helped define my curls and helped me with achieving more shine then I typically get with other products. I finished off my wash n go with the Glossy Finishing Hair Polish. POPPPIN CURLS! 


I'm loving the definition, shine and bounciness I achieved with these products. 
All these products truly worked amazing and left me with a beautiful curls. Uncle Funky's Daughter products have easily made their way into becoming one of my go-to combo's for my wash n go's!
