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!

OPI Yoga-ta Get This Blue

 

Hi everyone! Its been a while since I did a blog post. I’ve been doing a lot of videos though on YouTube so in case you are not subscribed to my channel yet, click here to subscribe. Today I thought I’d share my current favorite nail polish with you, Yoga-ta Get This Blue from OPI. I picked this up from Jean-Claude Biguine Salon & Spa recently, along with a few other shades. You can get OPI online from Nykaa as well. These are priced at Rs 850 and I am so impressed with the quality.

Yoga-ta Get This Blue is a rich deep blue with fine shimmer/pearl. The formula is thin but applied very evenly and you need 2 coats for full opacity. I was a little surprised by how quickly it dried and I love LOVE the finish! These pictures were taken 3 days into the application, I think its wearing extremely well and the finish hasn’t dulled down. I am not a huge fan of blue polishes but I was a little bored of my usual nudes so I decided to try this shade. I really like how rich it looks on the nails and very pleased with the formula! Will definitely be sharing more shades from OPI soon.
