[Haul & Giveaway] Fenty Beauty by Rihanna

Get yourself a coffee. This is going to be a long post. I'm going to feature the haul, first impression, review and lastly, you will be rewarded with a giveaway. Or you can straightaway jump to the giveaway section. If that's the case, I hate you!

Take note that below are just my first impression. I will do a separate review for the products. Do let me know which product I should review first.

A short story-time:

I think I was the first to purchase the Fenty Beauty product online because when I was browsing, everything seems to sell out. I could only get the Match Sticks Matte Skinstick (Mocha) and the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo (Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby). Off... I went to check out and paid for it (since everything else sold out). A few minutes later, I went back to check out the Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer. What was marked "sold out" was then magically available! That moment, I knew... My first purchase was made before they could release all the items!

My early purchase got me the limited edition holographic makeup bag. This is my most favourite thing from the entire haul!

I went back to the screen and saw all that I wanted was already in stock. To add salt to the wound, the Match Stix Trio (which includes the mocha shade I bought earlier) that I wanted is also available!!! I went on to purchase the second round. This is how I ended up with two of the Match Sticks Matte Skinstick (Mocha) that I decided to give it to you.

Rihanna, in partnership with Kendo Brands, a LVMH-owned beauty developer, launches her global makeup brand, Fenty Beauty, in an unprecedented 1,600 stores across 17 countries on one day. Beauty industry's most anticipated launch. Fenty Beauty was created by Rihanna with a vision that's always ahead of the game - Fenty Beauty redefines the rules with light-as-air formulas that love to be layered, in a global lineup of shades designed for all.
Rihanna was inspired to create Fenty Beauty after trying to find products that worked across all skin types and tones. With Rihanna's mandate to inclusivity, Fenty Beauty offers a wide range of products for traditionally hard-to-match skin tones, creating formulas that work for all skin types, and pinpointing universal shades.

Match Stix Trio (RM230)

A magnetised trio of longwear, light-as-air makeup sticks curated by skin tone with two Matte Skinsticks to conceal and contour and one Shimmer Skinstick to highlight. Take your complexion to the next level without the guesswork using a Match Stix Trio. The pre-bundled sets make it easy to conceal, contour, and highlight on repeat with light-as-air makeup sticks that are expertly curated. Each Matte and Shimmer Skinstick is weightless, easy to blend, and stays put. The cream-to-powder formulas are so seamless, it’s impossible to tell where skin ends and makeup begins. They’re buildable, crease-proof, and made to be layered in a range of combos that light up all skin tones. And with a magnetic physical attraction, Matte and Shimmer Skinsticks click to each other, uniting for the total skin-defining package that’s always at your beck and call. 

I got the set that has the shade Bamboo, Mocha & Trippin' for the medium range. The Bamboo was perfect for my skin tone (NC25/NC30) as concealer. Mocha would be my contour shade. And Trippin' reminds me a lot of NARS Orgams Blush which is also available in stick form.

Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer (RM90)

The ultimate gotta-have-it lip gloss with explosive shine in one universal rose nude shade. The stop-everything, give-it-to-me, gloss that feels as good as it looks: Gloss Bomb delivers explosive shine in one perfect rose nude shade handpicked by Rihanna herself, Fenty Glow. One luscious swipe of Gloss Bomb’s XXL wand gives lips more to love, while conditioning shea butter conditions from within. Lips look instantly fuller and smoother, and although it’s super shiny, it feels amazing on your lips, with an addictive peach-vanilla scent you just can’t get enough of.

It claims to be the only lip gloss you ever need. But from the swatch it appears to look like every other lip gloss. It also reminds me of M.A.C.'s Lip Glass which is really sticky. In my opinion, this lip gloss is quite average (don't kill me if you love it). I just think that it doesn't stand out as much as what I expected it to be. Good to skip the lip gloss.

Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo (RM145)

Weightless cream-powder hybrid highlighters that range from subtle dayglow to insanely supercharged in expertly paired duos. Light up where you want, when you want. Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter was born to reflect your every mood with its lineup curated duos. Each duo features a subtle sheen on the left that's perfect for day and supercharged shimmer on the right, killer for night. With a dose of skin-glorifying colour, Killawatt ranges from subtle dayglow to insanely supercharged with shades that were designed for all skin tones. Unlike your everyday highlighter, it keeps skin lit beyond sundown with a weightless long-wearing formula—--a cream-powder hybrid that instantly melts into skin and blends with almost zero effort. Another win: It’s loaded with superfine shimmer for an ultra-smooth, creamy texture.

This is my favourite of all the products although it isn't the star product from the brand. It reminds me a lot of another NARS product - Hungry Heart Duo Highlighter. Mean Money is a subtle highlight which is not very prominent. Hu$tla Baby is more prominent and it gives that disco ball reflective effect.

Overall, I think it is worth it to get the Match Stix Trio. For the price of RM230, you get three full size of the Match Stix (RM105 each). You save about RM85. The Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo is also a good purchase. I really love the texture of the highlighter. It blends well on top of the loose powder, but not on liquid foundation. If I could return the Gloss Bomb, I would trade it for the Invisimatte Blotting Powder. I also wish to try out the Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation that comes in 40 shades!


Lastly... the giveaway is the Match Stix Matte Skintstick in Mocha which is the same thing I got from the trio stix.

HAHAHA That's how you "accidentally" bought the same product! Interesting indeed >< Yes I tried the lip Luminizer and found it very average, I don't like it due to its stickiness.

Thanks for the giveaway and I'm joining! :)
