WORTH THE HYPE? FENTY BEAUTY STUNNA LIP PAINT
When Rihanna aka "Badgalriri" dropped a pic of Uncensored Stunna Lip Paint from her cosmetic line FENTY BEAUTY on Instagram, I died! I literally died! I am a super fan of a red lip because it screams glam which I live for. This is actually my first purchase from the line. I finally got my hands on it a few days ago and was curious as to how it would compare to the plethora of other red lip colors I own. I applied the lip paint for the first time on my Instagram story (which I'm obsessed with.. FOLLOW ME:-) and many of you were asking my thoughts about it.
Let's just say, the pros supersede the cons! Here's why...
PROS: The packaging has a luxurious presence. It's long chrome handle adds a fancy touch that gives the product a unique look. The wand has a pointy edge that helps line the lips. The rounded side of the wand is perfect for filling in the lip color. I was surprised at how much coverage one swipe distributed to the lips. The color is GORGEOUS! The first time I applied the product, I literally lined and filled in the lips without reinserting for more product. It's highly pigmented, lightweight, doesn't streak or crumble after applying multiple layers. One major key, it doesn't dry out the lips!
CONS: The lip paint does have minimal transfer. For example, after drinking, you will see it on the glass. If you're kissing your man, the lip stain will transfer (just saying). But for the most part, it is long lasting. I found myself reapplying mostly in the center of the lips. Be careful when removing the wand, it could drip and become messy. When the product is wet, it can transfer on your teeth. No one wants that embarrassment.
Lastly the price... $24. I do believe it is a little pricey but worth it.
In my opinion, when applied, the formula reminds me of a mixture of a lipstick and liquid lipstick. Its long lasting like a liquid lipstick but smooth and comfortable like a traditional lipstick.
I am certainly looking forward to more shade options.
