REVIEW: Fenty Beauty LIpstick

Packaging - 5 (excellent)
Shade Range - 5 (excellent)
Longevity - 2 (not very good)
Hydration - 2 (not very good)
Wear - 1 (awful)

I was so bummed out by this lipstick. Fenty Beauty by Rihanna has been KILLING IT. From their insanely amazing foundation (you can read about that here) with it's wide and inclusive shade range, to their stay-all-day stunning highlighters, people have been falling for Fenty. I was skeptical of the brand at first, attributing it's success to hype from RiRi fans. But when I did finally dip my toe in, I was hooked. So I was expecting something amazing from this lipstick too which advertises itself as long-wearing, matte, hyper-pigmented, weightless, and never drying.

When I put this on it was a smeary mess. Feathering for days! It was lightweight, the ads got that right. But I had to put on a few layers to get full coverage so I wouldn't call it hyper-pigmented. And the transfer! It was on my clothes, my chin, my sandwich, my tissues. It was EVERYWHERE! I had to reapply it multiple times throughout the day. So yes, airy and matte-ish (I wasn't a bold matte, it was kind of in between matte and satin), but not a good lipstick. You'd be better off with several other high end brands such as Urban Decay or MAC.
