My Lipgloss is Poppin' | Universally Flattering Fenty Glow Lipgloss


In the event you did not know, Rhianna launched a beauty line called Fenty this past fall, and it's actually really good. I say really, because you know as well as I do, when celebrities jump into something and slap their name on it, quality is usually lacking.
Now, I will say this is one of three products that I even have from the line, the others being the red lipstick and the primer which are both still in my untried box. Aside from my limited hands on experience, I have heard many great things.



I didn't know I needed this lipgloss until I saw Gabriella review it here, not having seen anyone else review it. (Skip to 6:40 to hear her impressions of the lipstick.) The full name of the product is Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer, with the (only) color name Fenty Glow, a shimmering rose nude.


There is only one color, as it is meant as a universal, "unicorn of nudes that looks good on everyone." (Sephora). It has a large doe-foot applicator, which I found to like, but may be a hinderance if you have thinner lips. That is the only potential draw back I can see, it is a gorgeous nude, it smells amazing (peach and vanilla, also reminds me of pink starbursts,) the packaging is stellar, it has lasting power, and most importantly? It's a gloss that IS NOT STICKY.


Yep, you read that correctly- it's not sticky. Now it's not dry or creamy, it definitely still feels like you're wearing a gloss, but it has shea butter in it which feels exceptionally nice on your lips. You can wear it alone or layer it over a lipstick. I personally use a light layer of my OG balm Fresh Lip Treatment.


DETAILS

-Purchase from Sephora here for $18, from Fenty Beauty here for $18, or a MINI SET here for $22 including a mini Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter.


OVERALL THOUGHTS

I'm very happy with it, the color is a slight difference than my normal color, so it just enhances my natural lips. It feels really nice for a lipgloss as I said earlier, and it's an excellent color to keep around for more cool toned makeup days. $18 is a pretty median price for a lipgloss, and while it may seem steep to some, at this time, how many crappy, unused lip balms are sitting in your makeup unused?? I personally am trying to focus more on quality purchases which I will actually use.

Have you tried anything from the Fenty line that I need in my life?
