Fenty Beauty Match Stix

Frustratingly in 2017 there still aren’t enough brands that are catering for all of the varying skin types and tones, or even products that have alternative shades to the norm.

 Unless you’ve been living under a rock you may have seen that Rhianna has launched her new range, Fenty Beauty. Check it out here.

Nic has created a tutorial to showcase some of the products within the range but we also wanted to focus in on the Match Stix product in the range.

For me, when I initially saw the Matchstix, I was a little confused as to where and how I could use this product within my routine. Was it a foundation? Was it a highlighter? Was it a contour? Well it’s all of that. It’s kind of a multi use product, which can be used in whichever way you need it.

Firstly let’s talk about the packaging. I love the blush pink packaging and the magnetic hexagonal shape means they click together like a honeycomb.

 The Match Stix are available in shimmer, matte or as a trio, which caters for concealing, contouring and highlighting.

 We don’t have all the shades but have a selection to share with you in shimmer and matte.

The shimmer sticks are a longwearing, iridescent, cream highlighter but can also me used on the apples of the cheeks for a radiant blush too.

 They apply easily and blend well. The texture is pleasantly dry so it never feels wet or greasy, making it a good choice for all skin types, including oily.

The matte match stix are available in 20 shades with varying undertones to suit. The finish is obviously matte but it’s more of a velvet matte. Never feels chalky and has just the right amount of slip to blend without a build up of patchy pigment.

 You can use it as a concealer, a colour corrector or as a contour. There are some great contour shades in the line-up, which have an ashier undertone to create a natural looking shadow rather than an orange streak!

 Apply them on naked skin to areas that just need a touch of product or layer them on top of your foundation if you need a little more cover or colour. They provide a medium to full cover but are easy to blend with your fingertips if you prefer a sheer wash rather than a solid colour.

We don’t have any of the trio’s to show you but they cater for all of the above but in a set of three.

 I like the idea of being able to purchase each of the shades individually so you can click them together and create your own custom kit that won’t get lost in your makeup bag or kit.

The matte and the shimmer stix are £21.00 each and the trio are £46 for the three.
