Some feedback on the FB Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation. I was matched to 360, which shade wise, works right now because of my tan.

After testing over three days, the formula is a fail for me. After a few hours of wear, it looked "meh" on my skin. Also, it did not perform for me as "longwearing." Now mind you, my HG is Estee Lauder DW and that stuff holds up for +10 hours, so perhaps my bar is set high.

I strongly suggest you get samples before buying a full bottle.
I liked ester Lauder double wear, and I was pleasantly surprised that I loved the foundation in the fenty beauty line. For the Pro Filt'r longer foundation I tried 390 and 400, 400 works right now, but 390 will be perfect come winter time. I loved the foundation went on light, looked like skin, I am impressed! those were the only items I got from the line. I wasn't impressed with the highlighters, or the skin/highlight/blush sticks- too dry, and I know a lot of people loved trophy wife but it's too glitter for me and it didn't look very nice on my skin tone.

I apologize for the size of the photo (does anyone know how I can make it smaller?) but this combination of the Unicorn and Confetti Match Stix Shimmer Skinsticks are absolutely gorgeous. I feel like this may be my next purchase.... Rihanna is a great model for her products, I'm basically buying everything that I see her use and wear, lol.



Good job doing 3 products. I think these are my faves too! I think I want everything too. Totally surprising to me for some reason.
Rihanna jumpstarted my love for makeup with her first collection with MAC, so overall, I'm just super excited about this line and want everything, which is surprising for me as well because I typically don't want to buy practically every product from any brand, lol. With the exception of Yacht Life, I narrowed down what I purchased based on what was hyped up the most and what she wore to her US launch (Trophy Wife and Fenty Glow) as I felt that those items were going to sell out first (with the exception of the foundations of course, which I still need to go in and try). I was going to wait to purchase more in November during the semi-annual sale (I still am) but I caved and bought the Portable Highlighter Brush 140 and the Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby Highlighter when the 15% off LUCKYDAY promotion code was working. So far, I've only worn the Fenty Glow lip gloss over Kat Von D's Lolita Liquid Lipstick, however, I want to wear it by itself to see how it looks and eventually get the the RIDIIIC Shimmer Skinstick and wear it over that (which is the combination she wore at her US launch).

I loved that look! I've been eyeing Confetti and am trying to wait until a sale....

I loved the look as well, it made me even more excited about getting Confetti. I wasn't really considering getting Unicorn, but I'm tempted after seeing them together. I'll also probably wait until the sale as well. It's permanent so there's no rush and I can keep myself occupied with what I have in the meantime.

Oh see, I got unicorn first thing, haha. I love it. It's much more daily wearable than it would seem at first glance. Most of the oomph in that look of Riri's is Confetti with unicorn enhancing the cooler purple color.

I feel exactly same as you on Unicorn. I even recommended one of my colleague to buy. And she loved it.

Wow! A holiday release too! Talk about launching big time into the market. Lucky for me too, nothing is really appealing to me. I got other more expensive holiday fish to fry ;)
Seriously! I just hope they're as well-stocked as they were the first time around. Nothing is calling to me immediately, but I'm sure I'll get drawn in by SOMETHING. :rofl:

I must be crazy, but I want almost every item and I'm not a huge Riri fan. I also have no buyer's remorse over any item I purchased from her initial launch. I think the price point is spot on as well as the quality. The only items I didn't like and didn't purchase were the two small brushes with pink bristles.

Much more subtle than Chanel, Dior, and the like, but it's there when you pump and apply. I do not notice upon dry-down at all, but I am not particularly sensitive. It's a soft, sweet scent...I'm having a hard time distinguishing it from the Burt's Bees Baby I just used to wash my son (LOL), though, so I'll try it again in a little bit.
So......I liked the scent well enough but it turns out I am allergic to it, as in sneezing my head off the rest of the afternoon after just trying it on my wrist! It did last on me all afternoon even after washing it off. I should have used an actual makeup remover but was too dumb to think of it.
