Fenty Beauty Blonde Match Stix Shimmer SkinstickFenty Beauty Blonde Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick ($25.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a medium, yellow gold with warm undertones and a fine, pearly sheen. It had more pearl than base color, so as I blended out the color, it looked more shimmery than yellow. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage overall. The consistency was thin, just barely creamy, and it definitely applied best with fingertips as the warmth helped keep the product blendable and malleable on the skin. On me, it wore well for eight hours.

Formula Overview

$25.00/0.25 oz. - $100.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be long-wearing with a “light-as-air,” “blendable” texture that “lives to be layered." They twist-up and are medium-sized with a domed edge. I found that applying to my fingertips worked better than direct application, as it enabled me greater control over coverage level as well as placement, and if you tend to apply over foundation, then this will help keep the Match Stix cleaner, too.

The texture was thin, and it did seem to go from a “cream” in the tube to a more powder-like product once on the skin. They were fairly blendable with a few being more sparkly with less visible base color, which may not be for everyone, and others had a more pearl-like sheen that didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. Most shades applied and blended out without lifting up foundation or pulling into pores (over bare skin), but the ones that did tended to have larger particles in them. They lasted between six and eight hours on me.

A problem I had throughout just swatching each shade on my cheeks for photos was that whatever was exposed was a bit dry, more powdery to the touch, and I felt like I had to really warm the product up and/or swipe it back and forth on the back of my hand to refresh the texture. This is not uncommon with drier, cream-based formulas, but it's still a downside and an area that could be improved upon. Some shades were very pigmented, others were medium and buildable, and a couple were sheerer.

Very pretty. I didn’t pick this one up b/c I grabbed Trophy Wife. This one is probably more wearable than TW, but how much gold highlighter does one person really need? I may pick it up in the future, but for now, it’s not a must have for me.

I think it might be too gold for me. When I went to Sephora, it was a Fenty madhouse and there was a dance at a local school so I didn’t get to swatch like anything other than foundation and the white powder highlighter.
