If you are a die-hard makeup maven and haven’t heard of Fenty Beauty, chances are you live under a rock. Launched by none other than pop icon Rihanna (aka Bad Girl Riri), the launch of Fenty Beauty was one of the most coveted beauty events of late 2017.
As if all that hype was not enough, she comes out with this absolutely ‘stunning’ (pun intended) lip paint that promises to be the holy grail of red lipstick as we know it.
Introducing the Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint. Bad Girl Riri vouches this shade will universally suit any complexion out there, and will last a good 12 hours without feathering ‘even while you eat, even while you make out’. Ofcourse I had to try it out.
If you are a sucker for great packaging like me, this is one lipstick you need in your collection. I mean, just look at it! So bold, so sharp…
It comes with an ‘unrivaled precision wand’ which is basically a sponge applicator that is supposed to make the lipstick-wearing easier with one quick swoop. The sponge is comfortable on the lips, but the width is a little too wide, so if you have particularly narrow lips, this can get a little messy.
The Colour & Formulation
Bad Girl Riri was so confident about this shade of red, that she’s only launched the Stunna Lip Paint in this one shade of Uncensored. Imagine the hype when the next shades get out!
The color is absolutely gorgeous. On the red scale, it is more on the deep, cool shade. It looks like a slightly darker version of my all-time favorite MAC Ruby Woo, but the texture here is even better.
It dries to a matte almost instantly, and doesn’t have the drying effect that tends to be so common with many matte liquids.
Best of all, the formulation is so light it feels like having nothing on! It really is very comfortable to wear.
I really love this shade on me 🙂
But does this red really suit every complexion out there? I did a little snooping around on Instagram, and must say it looks great on all these beauties:
12 Hour Wear?
I put the Stunna Lip Paint to the test, and took it out for brunch 🙂 This was us at the Tabule brunch, an endless smorgasbord of Lebanese salads and grills on a lazy, sunny Saturday.
Does this Stunna really last a good 12 hours post lunch, post anything? Well… this was me even before the kebabs platter got to the table.
See the feathering? Riri you break my heart.
And is it kiss-proof?
Let’s just say your man will not appreciate the laundry bills.
Why I LOVE the Fenty BEauty Stunna Lip Paint in Uncensored:
- OMG the colour! Definately topping my reds list right now, and it really does seem to suit every girl out there.
- OMG the packaging! This is one lipstick you’ll be flaunting at the top of your dresser.
- The pigmentation is pretty intense too. One stroke of deep, vibrant color.
- Like all things Fenty, this lipstick is 100% cruelty-free.
- AED 126 is quite a reasonable price for a premium lipstick like this.
The Not So Good…
- 12 hours? It barely lasted through brunch (and this was the not so greasy salad round).
- And yes it does feather.
- The ‘unrivaled precision brush’ can do with more precision.
