Board Memb'r

Fenty Beauty Board Memb’r Icon Semi-Matte Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.134 oz.) is a rich, deeper burgundy with cool undertones and a satin finish. This one seemed to have ultra-fine pearl throughout, though not enough to be visibly metallic or anything in that vein. The texture was lightweight, creamy, and fairly emollient with more noticeable slip compared to other shades in the range.

It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on fairly evenly but didn’t adhere as well to the inner area of my lips and was more prone to gathering around imperfections in texture (like flakes/peeling bits). This shade stayed on well for five hours, left a stain behind, and was lightly hydrating.

Formula Overview

$20.00 -

The formula is supposed to have a "plush texture" with "long lasting wear" that has a "semi-matte, creamy" finish and "high pigment." They had a lightweight, lightly creamy texture that was comfortable to apply and to wear, as they weren't prone to dragging, and they seemed to run between satin and semi-matte in finish. A few shades had a little more shine than others but none were truly matte, though they wore down to a more matte finish after two to three hours of wear (at most).

They were not as fully-filled with silicone as some of the other more modern, semi-matte/matte formulas have been in the last few years, but I could definitely feel that signature silicone glide when applying. There was enough slip, though, that they were fairly even and pigmented without catching on lip texture imperfections.

The formula had a sweet, fruity smell--same as the brand's lipglosses--but no discernible taste. Most shades wore for at least four hours with some of the richer/deeper hues lasting for six hours or longer. It was a lightly hydrating formula overall.

Keep in mind, the lipsticks are refillable but require you to purchase the refill ($20.00 each) and a case ($12.00) separately. The refills have a slim, translucent plastic cap that fits over the refill unit, which is secure enough for storing at home but likely not fit on snug enough to be kept in a makeup bag (perhaps in a small pocket in a backpack or purse where it won't roll around as much).

The MVP

Fenty Beauty The MVP Icon Semi-Matte Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.134 oz.) is a vivid, medium-dark blue-based red with cooler undertones and a satin finish. This was the most matte shade in the line-up.

It provided opaque color coverage in a single pass that applied uniformly and gently across my lips without pulling and was not too slippery, which allowed it to stay on. The lipstick had a soft, creamy texture with a silicone-like fluidity. This color was lightly moisturizing and lasted for six and a half hours.
