Unboxing and Reviewing Fenty Beauty, Rihanna’s Brand-New Makeup Line | New and Now | Byrdie


Hey, guys! It’s Faith, Byrdie’s editorial director,
and today I am going to swatch Rihanna’s brand-new makeup collection with you guys. It’s Fenty Beauty, and I’m excited to go through
everything and show them to you guys today. So let’s start off with this primer. It’s called the Pro Filter Instant Retouch
Primer. Rihanna was actually entered into a beauty
pageant when she was fifteen, and the first product she ever used was foundation, so that
was really kind of the inspiration around this line. It’s all about the Fenty face, which is soft,
glowing skin, but then no shine around the T-zone, and I think this primer will definitely
be a good first step. It’s kind of like this creamy, peachy color,
so I’m not wearing makeup right now on my face, and I just tap it all over my face,
and then I just like to use my fingers. This primer is really nice. I have to admit, I’m not really a primer person,
but it does kind of give you a very soft, matte finish. It’s very subtle, it’s not like other primers. I’m really glad it doesn’t have that slippery
silicone-y feel because usually I find that that looks really good for five minutes, and
then 10 minutes later my face is super oily. I think if you were having a really good skin
day, you could just go out and wear the primer. I’m actually really into this. It’s very soft. Let’s move onto the foundation, which is really
kind of remarkable because there are 40 shades of it, and, you know, most traditional foundation
brands don’t come near that number, but Rihanna said it was very important to her that she
represented all skin tones. So from the palest girl to the darkest girl,
she wanted everyone to feel included, and that’s why she came out with 40 shades, which
is quite a lot, but, you know, I think that’s amazing. I actually forgot that there is a makeup sponge
too, so I kind of want to use that with the foundation. So cute. So this flat side is supposed to be for under
your eye, and then the round side you can use for bigger areas. Wet it, get all the moisture out so now it’s
swelled up a little bit so this keeps your foundation from getting sucked into the sponge. I got color matched at the event. It’s 260. So this foundation also has kind of a soft
matte finish. She is very into that candlelit, kind of glowing,
not too shiny, not too dewy, just really beautiful, luminous skin. This is really, really nice, and I didn’t
have to use that much of it. Also, I think this color is perfectly suited
for my skin tone. So I really like this flat side because it
is good for covering large areas, but then also really nice for getting right under the
eyes, and the sponge is honestly so soft. I can’t get over how soft it is. I’m super impressed by this foundation. It kind of just blurred everything out, but
it doesn’t look like I’m wearing too much makeup. It actually doesn’t really look like I’m wearing
makeup at all. It just looks like I’m having a really good
skin day. And it’s not too shiny and not too matte. Moving on, I have to show you guys my favorite
product; they are called Match Stix, and I love anything in stick form, mostly because
I just like applying things with my fingers.These guys come in soft matte shades that you can
use as concealer and contour, but then they also come in shimmery shades that you can
use on your cheeks, your lips, your eyes, everything. So I really love a multipurpose beauty product,
and these are definitely it. My shade is called bamboo—so this guy, as
you can see, it feels nice and weighty, which is nice because I feel like a lot of times
if a beauty product is good but it feels really light, sometimes it can feel cheap, and these
guys feel nice in the palm of your hand. I always like to cover any darkness under
your eye, and then if you have any redness around the nose. See how easy it is to just some apply something
with the stick. I love it, thank you, Riri, appreciate it. A couple of spots up here that I would like
to cover a little bit more, so these formulas are really creamy. I do feel like it dries down pretty quickly
though, so you want to make sure that you are blending it in ASAP. You can buy them individually, but you can
also get them in a pair of three, or you can buy as many as you want, and they all snap
together so you never lose them in your purse, which is so smart. This was one that I fell in love with at the
event. It’s called Yacht Life, and it is just this
really pretty, peachy-pink color that I think would look really good on the cheeks. So I just like to smile and go like this. It’s very subtle. I do feel like they could be a little creamier
because I do like kind of more of a glowy look, but I think this is very in line with
that soft, velvety, matte aesthetic. I think it’s really pretty. You can use it on your eyes as well, so I
guess we can try that. It’s really pretty on the eyes actually. I love this. So it’s really kind of a multiuse product,
and this shade, I definitely think it’s going to be one of my staples. Lastly, I have to show you guys this product
because not only did I try it at the event, but when Rihanna walked into the room and
saw me, she asked me if I was wearing this shade on my cheeks. This is a really beautiful, purply, iridescent
shade. I love a good holographic highlight, so I
just put it above my cheekbones. They also launched this really cool brush. They were saying it’s called a shark tooth
brush because of the way the brush head is shaped, but it just perfectly hugs the angles
of your cheeks, so I really like it for kind of blending out highlighter. And this is definitely an intense highlighter,
so I want to make sure it’s very blended. So, I am glowing! I don’t necessarily know if this is like a
daytime look, I probably would have just stuck with the Yacht Life, but I just had to put
it on because I love it. All right, moving on guys—we have this really
beautiful cream-powder hybrid product, and this comes in a variety of shades, but the
one I chose is this really beautiful golden-red color. I think this color is going to be so huge
in 2018. This is supposed to be highlighter, but I
think it’s going to be really pretty on the lid, and you would never think that red eye
shadow would be easy to pull off, but honestly, I’ve been pretty surprised by how versatile
it is. I’m going to use that shark tooth brush again
just very lightly. I probably wouldn’t do this in real life,
put it over, but I just want to see what it will look like on the cheeks, and also this
brush just feels really good. And then, if you guys want to turn up the
volume and go a step further, you just use the other pan, which is more high-intensity
glitter. I’m just gonna put this on the center of my
eye—yeah, there’s definitely more flecks of glitter in there. I think this is the perfect color for fall
and so easy to apply. I really can’t get over how good my skin looks. That foundation is amazing. Wow, sorry, just had a moment with myself. All right, so let’s finish off this look with
a lip product. Rihanna launched Fenty Beauty with just one
lip product. It comes in this really, really cute packaging, and then this applicator is so big and fluffy. It’s made with shea butter, it’s very hydrating,
and it feels way more like almost a lip balm than a gloss. In case you’re like me and you do kind of
have oily skin and halfway through the day you realize you’re a little, you know, oily
up here, Rihanna did launch this other product. So let’s just say I wanted to just super modify
my T-zone. If it’s looking a little bit oily, it also
gives kind of a blurring effect, which is nice, and she swears that even though it’s
white, it really is invisible so you can use it on all skin tones, which I think is amazing. She also launched these really cool travel-size
brushes, and you can use them to touch up if you don’t want to use the pad, and they
snap right in. Not every celebrity brand is amazing, as much
as we all want them to be, but I am so so impressed by all the products here, and they
really do feel like things that you would use every single day—whether it’s a daytime
look or whether you want to amp it up for nighttime, you don’t need to be a professional. I certainly am not, but I love that I put
together this really pretty, glowy look in just a few minutes. I definitely want to know if you guys have
tried any Fenty beauty products. Comment below. Let me know your thoughts. Let’s talk about it. I’m super, super excited to play around with
everything. So thanks for tuning in, and I will see you
guys next time. Bye!
