Fenty Beauty Products Popular with WHS Students

Makeup is a friend to many people. Makeup is not just for making you look better, but it is also to cover up any pores, acne, or wrinkles. There is so much to like, including foundation, primer, powder, eyeshadow, and more. Many celebrities have their own makeup lines, including Kylie Jenner, Rihanna, and the Kardashian sisters.

Many of our Walkersville students are buzzing about Rihanna’s new makeup line, Fenty Beauty. Many women have different skin types and pigmentation. With the launch of Fenty Beauty, it’s easier for girls to find a perfect foundation for their skin tone.

Senior Debbie Afolabi couldn’t contain her excitement, “I’m so excited because she knows what she is doing.” Junior Alex Barrera added, “I think she is smart and she knows what she is doing.” Junior Jabrea Favors added to Barrera’s comment,  “She is smart and she can slay and she is cool, and she is good where she is.” Junior Emily Jenkins agreed, “It’s good she has shades for all skin colors.”

Fenty Beauty might be way better than Kylie Cosmetics and many other well known makeup lines. Fenty Beauty launched with foundation, a primer, highlighters, concealer sticks, contour sticks, highlighting sticks, brushes, a blotting powder, blotting paper, and a lip gloss. Fenty Beauty is the first to make a foundation for every skin tone.

On the official launch, Fenty Beauty released 40 foundation shades, which is rare for any makeup brand. Most brands carry ten shades at a max, making it harder for darker and lighter skin tones to find a shade that works. Pro Filt’r foundation is a velvet to matte foundation and is designed to be worn for long periods of time. The most highly anticipated product at the initial launch were her Killawatt Freestyle highlighters. The shade Trophy Wife is a blinding golden highlighter that took all attention when the brand was released. Many youtubers are raving about it, including Manny Mua, NikkieTutorials, and Jeffree Star.

Fenty Beauty’s packaging is newer compared to any brands. Concealer sticks, contour sticks, and blotting powder and matching brush are magnetic for travel. The concealer and contour sticks have received better reviews than KKW Beauty’s contour and highlight sticks. For $54 for three sticks, you have to receive a lot of product. For KKW Beauty, her products are $48 and you receive product that will last you less than a month.

Many brands that are sold at Sephora are high end and expensive. Fenty Beauty, although expensive for most, is relatively low on the price range at Sephora. Here are the prices below: [1]
