#FENTYBEAUTY ¦ My purchases- Pro Filter Soft Matte Longwear Foundation + KillaWatt Highlighter

Rihanna is a force to be reckoned with; having a Midas touch with countless number one hits under her belt, undeniable successes with power houses such as Monolo Blahnik, Dior, Balmain to name a few to now have launched a make up line with up to 40 shades of foundations, Rihanna is making sure she's got everyone covered , literally.



She has slowly taken over everyone's hearts with her exotic beauty, careless attitude and sex appeal. She is a role model and icon to many with a relate able story, work hard, hustle and flourish. So it goes without saying I was eagerly anticipating what was to be launched. We all have probably seen she has launched several highlighter duos and cream highlighter sticks, contour and matte foundation sticks, lip glosses and lip crayons as well as blotting powders, two brushes and a primer.

Upon seeing her full collection on HarveyNichols.com, I wasn't actually impressed as it's difficult to portray colours and textures online as vividly in real life. After I had seen Instagram take a #fentybeauty makeover and people's own pictures I wanted to purchase her foundation and highlighter duo.



I quickly ran on my work lunch break and it was very busy so I was unable to take pictures of the counter and of the rest of her products. I picked up the foundation in '240' warm, and had it tested on my jaw and it is a perfect match *review to come* and her highlighter in 'Ginger Binge and Moscow Mule' which is a stunning burnt shimmery burgundy pink.

Shockingly, they are both priced at £26 which is very affordable especially since the foundation is a 32ml bottle despite a 30ml bottle every brand offers. I am excited to try these products and what is to come.

NEW¦ L'Oreal True Match Concealer REVIEW- DUPE for UD Naked Concealer!

I am hooked!

Ever since seeing this concealer on @plasticboy 's Instagram and YouTube channel I had to go out and purchase this! I wanted to see if it was similiar to my holy grail UD Naked concealer as well as if L'Oreal had a golden undertone selection with these concealer as this is what the UD concealer lacks.


Priced at £7.99, I purchased two and received the third for free as Superdrugs are currently having a 3 for 2 offer. The shades I picked are 3N Creamy beige (highlight shade), 3D.W Golden Beige (which is my under eye concealer shade) & 6.D/W Golden Honey (which is my actual skin tone/spot concealer shade).

I am blown away at how well these perform,Urban Decay does belong to the Loreal group so they would be very similiar but they are literally the same. They last the same, only crease right at the end of the day (nothing major- but if you have under eye wrinkles you will get creasing ) and the shades are actually better than what UD offers.

I am sold. I don't think I'll be purchasing UD concealers any time soon as these are so much better. The consistency is however a lot more sheer, I would describe them as light to sheer but if you allow it to sit on the face for a minute it allows the concealer to become more opaque.

It's a must try guys!
