Champagne Heist

Fenty Beauty Champagne Heist Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick ($25.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a soft copper with warm, orange undertones and fine gold and copper micro-sparkle. It had medium to semi-opaque coverage applied in a single stroke, directly from the tube, while the coverage was sheer to semi-sheer when applied with a brush or fingertips. It seemed somewhat sheerer compared to the holiday mini release.

The texture felt smooth to the touch, and the tube itself glided across my skin without dragging, but it had a faster dry down when I worked with it, so I’d recommend working one cheek at a time if using fingertips or a brush to apply or blend out. I applied by patting it into the general placement I wanted with my index finger, and then I used the edge of a clean fingertip to diffuse and soften the edges. The product blended out well over bare skin, and it didn’t seem prone to lifting up foundation. It lasted well for eight hours on me before I noticed signs of fading.

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.

If Ulta hadn’t completely and utterly dropped the ball with the order I placed on Monday, I might have let Champagne Heist go. But they DID. And very badly. Even though it only earned a B-, I really do love how it has a glassiness to it! It’s a ‘maybe’? Unless Ultra straightens out their ends mess with my PayPal payment. They didn’t “catch” it when it was issued to them for my order of the Foreo Luna Play Plus and Ofra Bali Highlighter. I’m quite upset over this, because Ulta claims it will take at least a week for them to get to the bottom of it and figure out what to do. 🤬

This is so frustrating, Nancy. Sorry you are experiencing this. I had a similar frustration with Sephora over my Coy palette. My problem wasn’t with the payment but with the delivery. I was tracking the package and on the day it was suppose to be delivered it said it was and that it was left on my doorstep. I was home all day long. I have complete visual access to my front porch. No one came onto my porch. Surprisingly, I have a watch kittie and she runs like a crazy person if a car even pulls into my drive, little own someone coming onto my porch. Anyway, took two weeks to get this settled with Sephora and for me to get my palette.

I rarely order from or shop at Ulta any more becouse of neverending problems that seem difficult to impossible to correct.
My sympathies. Hope your iissue resolves quickly.

I’m sure you could use it that way, but they are a cream-to-powder so they may not be as comfortable as a regular lipstick.
