Hi all! You all asked for another beauty review and you got it! Now I’m actually on spring break and so I’ve decided to write you lot a few more posts (and maybe some more reviews) so stay tuned over the next two weeks!
Today I’m gonna talk about the Fenty Beauty Match Stix Trio (following on from my Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Foundation/primer review-read here.)
So far, I am quite fond of the brand and one of my favourite parts of the collection is the packaging. The millennial pink is just gorgeous and I love it. Also, the Match Stix are magnetic, so they all stick together. That’s great for me, because (A) I love playing with them and (B) they all stick together in my makeup bag and because I use them in order (conceal, contour then highlight) it works out really well that I am not fishing through my bag for individual pieces.
The formula of the conceal and the contour sticks is quite thick (which is expected with a cream product), and the shape of the actual sticks makes them easy to use. That’s especially great when you’re a beginner. When I actually got the sticks I didn’t quite know how to use them, but I watched this YouTube tutorial which explained it for me. The product doesn’t smudge easily and depending on the method you use to blend them it might be difficult, but they blend just fine with a wet (or should I say “damp”) blending sponge.
As to the highlight stick- it is so pigmented! There is so much packed into one little stick and it’s amazing. I have the highlight “Rum”, and it’s a rose gold/coppery color which is perfect for my skin tone.
I bought mine in a trio set, which costed a bit more than $58 in Sephora. To me-all most high-end makeup is overpriced, so I won’t comment on the price tag. But I will say that individually the sticks cost about $25 each. So to get three for $58 is almost like getting one for about $8.
In relation to purchasing them in a set, I’m not sure how I feel. The issue with buying them in a set of three is that you may or may not be able to pick which ones go in your set. It worked out really well for me, that was because all of the colors worked for me. But if you’re not sure, I would probably recommend buying the ones you want individually.
All in all, I would definetly recommend the Match Stix to you. I am quite pleased with all three of the Fenty Match Stix that I have! I hope you enjoyed this post!
