Fenty Beauty by Rihanna : First Impressions

 

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna

 

Hi everyone! Rihanna launched her makeup line, Fenty Beauty, a few weeks back and the beauty world can’t stop talking about it! The first batch of products were mostly complexion/face products along with a universal shade of lip gloss. I picked up a few of the products to try out (couldn’t resist all the buzz!). I placed my order directly on the Fenty Beauty website and used a mail forwarding service (ShipOutFromUSA.com) to get the products delivered from US to India.

I picked up the foundation in shade 270. Since its a fairly new brand, swatches of all the foundation shades together weren’t easy to come by so I had to make an educated guess to choose my shade. I also picked up the primer, the lip gloss and a highlighter duo. I haven’t tested the products properly yet but I wanted to share my first impressions of the products with you.

GLOSS BOMB – Universal Lip Luminizer ($18)

This comes in a universal rose-y beige shade with ultra fine shimmer and incredible shine. I do love a glossy lip and this nude shade gives a lovely juicy shine to the lips. Its not too opaque so I like using a mauve pink or deep rose lip stain underneath this to add some color. The texture is very comfortable; non-sticky and super hydrating. I was on the fence about how unique this would be (it’s a nude lip gloss after all), but there is something about it that makes me reach for it over and over. I think its the feel of the formula – it doesn’t sit in a thick, gloopy layer on the lips and instantly hydrates and softens the lips. I can see myself using this for a long time. I like the look of the packaging as well!

MAC Makeup Art Cosmetics Collection for Spring-Summer 2017

 

MAC Makeup Art Cosmetics Collection for Spring-Summer 2017

MAC Makeup Art Cosmetics Full Face Kit - Moons of Saturn

 

Hi everyone! I was invited by MAC India a couple of weeks back to attend their Spring-Summer 2017 Trends event. It was an interactive session with MAC India Senior Artist Sonic Sarwate about the hottest beauty trends this season. Its all about individual expression when it comes to trends this year. Makeup is more real than ever before and that doesn’t necessarily mean natural, but real in terms of what is ‘real‘ to you. Wearing a bold flick of kohl may be natural to someone while to someone else, a pop of color on the lips may be what makes them feel their best. Trends are more flexible than they’ve ever been before and its all about your own interpretation of a look. Some of the other trends this season are wet (glossy-looking) makeup with strategically placed highlights, color, which may be in pop or subtle form and monochrome makeup. While I’m not one to follow trends too closely, they do give some fresh ideas and inspiration fpr trying out new looks!

I also received a goodie bag at the event with some pieces from the Makeup Art Cosmetics collection for Spring-Summer 2017. MAC has collaborated with 3 makeup artists to create this HUGE collection! Thanks to MAC India for the generous gift! I’m sharing quick thoughts on the products I was gifted below.
