This post really needs no introduction because if you haven’t heard that Fenty Beauty dropped last week and left the world SHOOK then I’m not really sure how you ended up here, so let’s get into it!
Can we get into how perfect both of these are?? Rum is a gorgeous brown girl bronze color that gives my skin the perfect highlight. Now that I’m back to work and my morning makeup routine has to be FAST, I’ve been loving Rum because it’s just so easy! It doesn’t have an ashy base or too much glitter that makes it difficult to work with. It’s pure shimmer that melts into my skin with a swipe and a few finger pats. I really hope that Fenty releases a powder highlight in Rum or a shade similar to it. I had to have Chili Mango because it’s literally the cream stick version of my brown girl blush holy grail NARS Taj Mahal. It’s a bright orange with a soft gold shimmer that looks so natural and once again EASY on my cheeks.
These Skinsticks have a cream-to-powder formula so they are slightly more dry than the typical cream highlight or blush but they also feel weightless when compared to more “wet” formulas. I’ve tried blending these out with my fingers and a brush and prefer using my fingers. I get an easier more seamless “melt into your skin” type blend with my fingers much faster than I can with a brush. They last all day on my skin with little fading.
As a person that does not usually enjoy stick highlights I’m slightly shocked that these were the first things that I knew I had to have from Fenty Beauty. I’m sure I’m going to end up buying more of these because there were so many shades that I LOVED! The entire range that has been released thus far is permanent and very well stocked at Sephora so there’s no crazy hyped rush to purchase (which I personally appreciate).
