gone swatching: fenty beauty Mattemoiselle lipsticks

Blog, Gone swatching


I’ve been following all of the new Fenty Beauty releases, but thus far there hasn’t been anything I’ve wanted to try myself. I talked about my opinions on the products that had come out thus far in this post on the Galaxy palette.

I do want to mention that just because those products don’t work for me, doesn’t mean I don’t like them. The famous foundation would be terrible for my (mostly) dry skin, but I couldn’t support the shade range more.

But these lipsticks? These work for me. I love lipsticks and really don’t need any excuses to buy more than I have, but I think I’m in love with them.

Let’s check out some swatches!

Gone swatching: fenty beauty galaxy eyeshadow palette

Blog, Gone swatching


I adore Rihanna, so when Fenty beauty first launched, I was convinced I would buy everything without even knowing what it was. However once it launched and I had the opportunity to try it in store (with a mob of people around it, I should add) the hype sort of died down for me.

I believe that this collection is of amazing quality, however it’s not for me in a couple ways.

a) I have dry/combination skin, so I don’t focus on making my face look super matte. This rules out the foundation, primer, blotting paper, and the concealer match stix.

b) The highlightersย felt either very glittery, or too much like other highlights I had.ย Trophy wifeย was unique, however I most definitely can not pull off a true gold highlight. I can hardly pull off BECCA champagne pop!

On the other hand, I’m excited to potentially try out the gloss bomb and the shimmer match stix or the contour match stix.

So now that I’ve introduced you to Fenty Beauty and my thoughts on their first collection, I will now give you the (literal) star of the holiday collection: the Galaxy Eyeshadow palette.
