Fenty Beauty By Rihanna


Since the launch of Fenty Beauty By Rihanna in September, the beauty industry is officially shook! And they should be! It took a singer to release 40 shades of foundation to suit a range of skin tones and include diversity in her campaigns. Let’s be honest, Fenty Beauty isn’t the ONLY brand with 40 shades, hell some brands have more but the point is she is the ONLY brand to release ALL 40 SHADES at the SAME TIME! most brands release 20-30 to ‘test the waters’ then gradually increase the ‘dark shades’ I cant tell you how many times I have been to press events to hear ‘the dark shades are still been tested and in 6 months it will come’ Fenty Beauty is the only brand( to my knowledge that has released everything at once!)

The whole Fenty Beauty collection has been extremely thought out and well put together. Rihanna, you did that! Since the initial launch, she’s now added eyeshadows and lip colours and it looks like there are more to come! I was super excited for the launch but I wanted to wait, to watch as many reviews and see how the products work. After many videos, reviews I finally decided to pick up what I wanted from the collection!

Pro Filtr Foundation- 430

Pro Filtr Instant Retouch Primer

Killawatt- Trophy Wife

Stunna Lip Paint- Uncensored

I will be reviewing the products a bit later on but I am sure you have already seen a bunch of reviews.

The Pro Filtr Foundation has been the most confusing foundation for me when it came to shade matching lol. From people saying it oxidised and others saying it dried down to its true colour, I was super confused between 2 shades, so I knew I had to get a sample to test out. I wasn’t about to wait in line at Harvey Nichols in London for this so I waited patiently till I went to Nice then headed to Sephora for a match and sample. I got matched to 430 and its spot on! I have some shade references in case you were also confused on what shade to get, please see swatches below:

Pro Filtr Foundation- 430

MAC Mineralise Moisture Foundation- nw47

NARS Sheer Glow- Benares

NARS All Day Weightless Luminous Foundation- Benares

MAC Studio Fix- NW50 (Summer Shade)


I hope this foundation comparison picture is helpful! I will be sharing my full thoughts on them soon so please stay tuned! More foundations- Mary Kay TimeWise Luminous Foundation

Have a happy Saturday

Hello there and welcome to my blog! My name is Sarah Fynn and I am the creator of this blog. So a bit about me, I LOVE travelling, all things hair and beaut. I love LOVE science! This blog came about as I began to transition to natural hair way back in 2011(Well it isn’t that long ago really lol). This blog will focus on 4 main areas Natural Hair. This area will have a diverse range of topics e.g. product reviews and recommendations, tips, advice and virgin hair review (my go to protective style) Lifestyle. This area is mainly poetry, inspiration and anything that doesn’t quite fit the other 3 areas Events. This is self-explanatory really. I will be covering events for my blog about natural hair, beauty and fashion or the odd event I find interesting Travel. Of course I will be bringing you posts on my adventures around the world! One of my goals is go to every single country! My travel posts may not be as regular as I would like (money problems lol) so in the meantime I will be talking about how to budget/plan and organise a trip! With any area, my aim is to INSPIRE you to either travel or go to an event even if it’s you alone, or to let you know your natural hair journey CAN BE SIMPLE! (Eek! I will try my bestest with that part)! Here you will find simple and straight forward information without the technical jargon or wooh-tah (seriously don’t you just hate that?)

Leave any comments or drop me an email to say hi, I would love to hear from you. If you’re a company/blogger and you’re interested in working with me, believe I want to too! Drop me an email if I don’t get to you first lol (I hope that doesn’t sound creepy) Email- sarah_fynn@hotmail.com Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day. Love Sarah.

One thought on “Fenty Beauty By Rihanna”

  1. That Trophy Wife highlighter is amazing. Sounds like you did the right thing, sometimes it’s best to let the hype die down first.

    From your swatches the MAC studio fix looked the best; which did you prefer?
