Hey boos!! For this blog post I wanted to do a little HIGH-LOW beauty review featuring two of my new favorites products. One line being a higher end brand and the other being a less expensive drugstore brand.
As you can tell from the title of this blog post two brands I will be featuring our Fenty beauty and Wet n Wild. I purchased the fancy beauty from Sephora and I purchased the wet and wild from my local CVS drugstore.
So I’m late to the party and I bought the Fenty Beauty line way after singer Rihanna launched the cosmetics brand in September 2017. But I’m typically always late to the beauty party so I already knew that I wasn’t going to purchase it when it first launched. I like to wait till all the hype settles down and see how the masses react to the brand. The reaction has been mostly positive. As a matter fact it’s been all positive from what I’ve seen. I have yet to see anything negative about Fenty beauty cosmetics line so far. So you can pretty much consider this blog post another positive review because if I don’t know anything I know one thing: Rihanna did that!!
This blog post came to be because I’m basically cheap ha ha and I Didn’t want to spend too much money at Sephora at the time. I only went in there to purchase concealer because I had run out of my usual concealer, by NYX, but I thought I wanted to try something different so I figured I’d go The FENTY route. And going that route I figured if I’m going to buy the concealer I ought to buy the foundation as well Because why not. At the time I was simply using a BB cream cream as my daily coverage to make my face look more even. I actually hadn’t worn regular foundation in some months so that also prompted me to purchase the FENTY foundation to go along with the concealer. At Sephora I went in there to inquire about a concealer by Milk cosmetics that I had seen one of my favorite Instagram make up artists Sonjra deluxe uses and I wanted to see if it was worth it.
Upon getting swatched by one of the lovely Artist at Sephora she was explaining to me that Milk cosmetics is a great brand if you love full coverage makeup. She showed me on my cheek just how full coverage their foundation actually is. IT COVERED EVERYTHING! She explained to me that if I wanted a more natural coverage that FENTY beauty would probably be my best option so I tried both. Although the MILK brand looked amazing it didn’t oxidize into my skin like I’m normally used to. The FENTY oxidized as soon as she applied it to my face and although you could still see everything on my face as far as beauty marks some old acne marks it’s still look like my skin which is what I prefer as opposed to a full coverage makeup look so FENTY was the winner. I bought the PRo Filt’r soft matte longwear foundation in the shade 280 as well as the PRo Filt’r instant retouch concealor in 280. These two products are an absolute dream! I can’t say enough good about them. Together they do exactly what I need them to do. The foundation give me enough coverage where my skin still looks like skin but it looks even in the concealer highlights just enough in the areas that I apply it to and conceals the spots then I dab it on. It’s an A plus in my book.
Now like I said I didn’t want to spend too much money at Sephora because I had already ditched my original plan to find a cheap concealer to purchase FENTY but I also wanted to purchase some highlight and contour products. And I definitely wasn’t about to spend anymore money to try that trophy wife highlight although that’s probably next ha ha So I decided to just purchase those two items and carry myself to my local CVS drugstore.
At CVS is where I found my new favorite contour and highlight products. I found the perfect highlight and Contour Products by Wet n Wild. They are the Megaglo Hello Halo liquid highlighter in the color Goddess Glow and the Wet N Wild Megaglo makeup stick Contour in the color Call Me Maple. Unlike the Fenty Cosmetics which cost roughly about $30 a piece, these two Wet N Wild products cost around $4.99 a piece. I wasn’t sure what to expect with these two products. Although I’ve used Wet n Wild in the past I didn’t know how well it would go with the Fenty Beauty and I was pleasantly surprised at how well everything went together. All four of these products give me the most natural look I’ve ever accomplished doing my makeup. I typically keep my makeup on the lighter side and I knew that since summer was approaching that I wanted products that would give me a Natural Glow without me trying too hard. these four products have literally been my daily go to and I honestly can’t see myself purchasing anything else anytime soon that will replace these products. I’m not opposed to just playing around with other makeup and reviewing anything else but right now I am so content with Fenty and Wet N Wild that these products have not officially become my staple. It’s safe to say it’s my Holy Grail. When I’m feeling less frugal and want to explore the other products in the Fenty line I will especially since summer is approaching I plan on getting a great tan. I think the trophy wife highlighter will look great on me but I will give that at least another month. So I say all that to say don’t be afraid to mix up lines there’s nothing wrong what’s a little high low in the stash. Since I’ve been wearing makeup I’ve pretty much been on the lower end of the spectrum as far as price points but I figured I’d Splurge a little bit because I feel like what Rihanna has done for the beauty industry as far as expanding the color shades to be more inclusive of darker skin tones have been amazing and I definitely had no problem giving her my coins. Even with my lighter skin tone I I just found it kind of crazy how the shade ranges we’re so scarce so I commend Rihanna in filling in the gap that should have been filled in years ago. GO SUPPORT A SISTA AND BUY THAT FENTY BEAUTY! 😘
