Hey everyone! Hope you enjoy this post about my special edition Glossybox purchase which was a collaboration with Fenty Beauty in December. If you don’t know Fenty Beauty is the line created by Rhianna and has become iconic for its products which are known for their pigmented shades and staying power. This box was a limited edition and sold out super fast, it was my Christmas present to myself ! There are 6 products here to show you and as I’ve had a little time to try them out I can give a review.
So first we have the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in the shades Mean money / Hustla Baby. These are described as a soft champagne and peachy champagne and it’s a full size. This is £28 to purchase usually and pretty much means the box pays for itself after this. I really like these colours and they are perfect for an everyday highlight. You could layer it up to be more dramatic too.
Next is the Fairy Bomb Shimmer Powder in the shade 24Kray again a full size item and this is a really fine loose powder and a glittery gold shade. It really is a gorgeous powder which can be used over the face and eyes for an illuminating effect. I used this at Christmas for a sheer effect on the eyes and it looked so nice. I think this would be really great for another highlight effect on the cheeks. This is £24 to purchase.
Also included is a portable highlighter brush which is slanted so you can trace the angle of your face. This would be fab for either your hand bag or for travelling. I absolutely love all of the packaging for this range it’s really edgy and sleek. This retails for £19
Pro Filt’r Mini Instant Retouch Primer £15 is a mattifying primer to give you a filter effect and blur all those imperfections. I’ve been looking for a new primer for a while and not really found anything I’ve been wowed by. I really like this formula and found my foundation sat beautifully and didn’t slide off during the day!
Stunna Lip Paint- Unbutton £20 is a peachy nude matte liquid lip colour and having used a couple of these previously I can definitely recommend their staying power! I really love this colour as it’s perfect for everyday and stays put. A perfect nude shade that would suit a range of skin tones.
Deluxe mini size of Full Frontal Volume Lift and Curl Mascara full size £21 this is one of the newer products from the Fenty range and has a specially designed “flat to fat” brush to give lashes volume, length and curl- who doesn’t want that for their lashes? This was ideal for a test of whether or not I’d like the formula , I hate purchasing mascara and then finding that I just don’t like it and having wasted money. I really like this formula and the brush is great for grabbing all your lashes and really coating them in the product. I would definitely consider purchasing the full size of this.
I loved this box for giving me a chance to try more of the Fenty Beauty range as I’ve previously just had an eyeshadow palette and a couple of lipsticks. It was an absolute bargain when you add up the total value of the products they are £106 altogether and the box was £30. (I haven’t included a price for the mascara sample)
Some of the collaboration boxes have been hit and miss for me with Glossybox but this was a really great one and such good value, I’m hoping there might be more like this on the cards during 2021!
What do you guys think? Do you have any Fenty Beauty recommendations? I’m thinking of trying their foundation next as I’ve heard great things.
