As many people know, Rihanna launched a Sephora exclusive brand called Fenty Beauty. The makeup world went crazy when she launched a collection of foundation, contour sticks, highlight stick, highlight duos, lip gloss, blotting powder and blotting papers. I purchased 2 Fenty products from my local JCPenney Sephora both of which are highlighters.
I purchased this Kilowatt due in the shades Lightning Dust and Fire Crystal and let me tell you this highlighter is AMAZING! I have been looking for a good natural but blinding highlight after using the mac soft and gentle and never being fully satisfied by the intensity of the highlight, but Rihanna has solved my highlighting problems with this creamy and intense highlight. I chose these 2 shades because they matched well with my skin tone the best, but I would love to try more of the duos in the future.
I was most excited to try the Match Stix Shimmer skinstick in the shade starstruck because I have yet to try a highlight stick, but this did not meet my expectations. The highlight is definitely a beautiful and blinding color, but the cream to power formula is hard to work with. I swiped it onto the cheekbones and there was a very obvious line where the highlight was placed, not a big deal but I was expecting a more blendable product for the price and hype.
The packaging of these are products are gorgeous and look very high end. I want to buy the contour stick just for the purpose of magnetizing the sticks together to create a honeycomb look! Overall, I was very excited about these products and the duo definitely prevailed, but save your money on the match stix and buy a pressed highlighter instead!
