Fenty Beauty Advice from Sephora Beauty Advisors

On Friday, my day started out by going to a fully stocked Sephora at 10AM to swatch foundations and highlighters. The best part is EVERYTHING I wanted was in stock! **Pats myself on the back** Man I was overwhelmed but not. I’m my opinion the line is VERY simple at the moment. No red/fuchsia lips, mascara or eyeliners. I wanted to buy something that I didn’t have… don’t laugh.



Products I got: Blotting powder & Moscow Mule.
**In the mail I currently have the highlighting sticks.**
I got a sample the foundation and 440 which I'm probably going to go back for later in the month.

Four tips that I got from the advisors when looking at the line was:

The foundation does oxidize/dry quickly. For me that's a pro because I rather my foundation oxidize earlier on than later in the day. Their tip was to try on three different colours swiped on your jaw. Then walk around the store for five minutes and see which one looks best. This is not a blend and go thing.
Brushes work best. It’s better to blend the skinsticks with a brush then with your fingers. Due to the consistency of the oil on your fingers- it might not be the best option to get the finish that you want.
That highlight is blinding! Trophy wife isn’t a everyday highlighter in MOST situations. For me, it's probably not the highlight that I'd wear everyday because it is bright. But if that's your thing thennnnn I would totally recommend it. There are bits of glitter in there-(mixed in with the shimmer) so in flash photography it's pretty.
Want long wear foundation? Her foundation would best with her primer. Something that is more "milky". I know that this will upset a few people but it’s the truth. Since it’s a matte foundation, if you use a matte primer it looks horrible. You need a primer that will give you hydration.

  2. Hmmm. I tried the 440 foundation with my go to primer and wasn't so pleased with the results. I might have to go back for her primer, thanks for the tips!

  3. These are great tips! Especially the tip with the foundation and primer. I have played with the foundation using different primers and it does look better when used with her primer *sorry not sorry* lol

  4. I'm glad you shared these tips! I feel like her release confused a lot of people. Especially when it came to the foundations lol. I even thought I was a different shade at first until trying them on. I still love her line! Can't wait to hear what you think about the Match Stix. I'm loving mine right now!
