I love Fenty Beauty. I can’t stop singing its many praises since its release and given I’m a diehard Rihanna stan, I have more reasons to love it. When I heard Rihanna was coming out with a body line under the Fenty brand, I was like, ‘Bitch, please take all of my money.’
ALL OF IT.
As an awesome anniversary gift, my husband gifted me the entire ‘Beach, Please!’ collection, valued at $135
My body was ready.
When I received the package, it came as a plain cardboard box and I think this packaging is brilliant because you don’t know what’s inside of it and they’re smart not to have Fenty Beauty broadcasted all over the box for someone to jack your ish.
But inside the box, tho…
Isn’t that dope?
Each product is individually wrapped/packaged, which makes a lot of sense.
Fun box and packaging aside, how do these products actually work?
First up to the plate:
The Fairy Bomb!
I love how it came inside a big box just for it. It didn’t come covered in a plastic wrap.
And when you open the box…
Doesn’t it look like a pomeranian?
It kinda does!
The trick is, I’m guessing, you just pom pom your body with this and it’ll release some fragrance and sparkle. Did you catch a little shade in my post? Yeah, because it didn’t work.
- It’s cute.
- It smells good.
- It’s pricey. $42. When you buy it in the Beach, Please package, it’ll come out to around $45 so you’re not really saving any money.
- You might feel you like you have to beat yourself up with the pom pom to get any out.
Bottom Line: Save your money. I wish I had.
Next batter up:
Face & Body Kabuki Brush
You can pretty much use this for any product, not necessarily Fenty. I personally love to use this along with the body lava because I feel it spreads it better than my hands and fingers.
It’s dense but mighty. The brushes are hella soft and I haven’t experienced any shedding.
Now that we know the player, let’s see how this works:
- It works very well. Blends easily.
- I don’t have to put so much work into using the brush. At ease with it.
- It’s pricey. $34 USD. You might find cheaper elsewhere.
- It does not clean well. At all. In fact, the body lava left some residue and a bit of a stain on the brush.
Bottom Line: It does its job but you might be able to find better for cheaper.
Final hitter of the night:
This was the main one I wanted to get so I was hella anxious to see if this one actually worked.
And thank the Good Lord Almighty it did!
Using the kabuki brush, I only put a little. And really, all you need is a little. Two pumps will cover your entire arm.
I had to see if this was going to work and I was really hoping it would. I guessed right.
It smells nice and light and leaves my skin feeling oh-so silky smooth and soft! I loves it!
- It comes in two shades depending on your skin tone.
- A little goes a long way. You need to spread it so your won’t feel sticky icky icky.
- It made my skin feel softer.
- It’s pricey. Almost $60 USD. This is definitely a splurge.
- Some have complained how sticky it is, but I also feel they might have used too much. You don’t use this as a lotion. The less the better.
Bottom Line: You might be able to find something that does the same thing for cheaper, however, the body lava does make your skin softer so it’s worth the splurge, IMO.
Overall, I wish I only purchased the Body Lava by itself, and not the entire package. The Fairy Bomb did absolutely nothing for me, and I think I would’ve saved some money on getting a better kabuki brush.
If you’ve tried any of the Fenty products, what did you like or not like about it?
