Frost Bunny

Fenty Beauty Frost Bunny Metallic Eye + Lip Crayon Set ($39.00 for 0.15 oz.) includes three shades of “creamy, metallic” crayon-style product that can be used on the eyes and lips. The formula is supposed to have “insane glide” that is “creamy upon application” but sets. The brand says that they can be used as eyeliner, eyeshadow, lipstick, or lip liner. I found the performance to be underwhelming both on the eyes and lips, though on lips it was particularly disappointing. The best use for these were as eyeliners, though there are far better pencil eyeliners on the market.

The pencils feature a very waxy, thinner consistency that does tug somewhat (eyes and lips) and often requires multiple passes over curved areas–they’d swatch well enough on my arm but in practice, I had trouble getting even, opaque coverage whether I tried the formula as an eyeliner, eyeshadow, or lipstick. They were easiest to use on my lower lash line, as they only tugged a bit, but the coverage seemed to lift slightly as I tried to layer and even out the color or else it would pull away along any fine lines. However, if I tried to diffuse or blend out the line, product flaked off or lifted away randomly. While swatches were difficult to remove on my arm/hand, most shades disappeared within six hours on my waterline and were noticeably faded after eight hours on my lower lash line.

As an eyeshadow, they applied poorly with fingertips and a brush as the formula dries so quickly that most of the product remained on my fingertip or wouldn’t adhere to my skin (from the brush), so applying directly from the pencil was best, which resulted in decent coverage but was often patchy or uneven. If I attempted to go back over areas with the pencil, I couldn’t glide the pencil; I had pat and push it onto just the area or else it would lift away other areas. When I tried to diffuse the edges, whether I just used a fluffy brush or fingertips along the bare edge or if I tried to use a powder eyeshadow (say, in the crease) to blend the shimmer shades and a matte crease shade together, the cream eyeshadow lifted away and left behind bald patches. I reached the point where it was a game of applying and accepting that they’d never look great on my actual lids. They did have decent wear on my lids with about eight to nine hours without creasing but the color started to flake off.

As a lip product, the formula actually managed to get worse! They take some maneuvering to apply evenly, as the texture was thin and drier, and the pencil tugged a bit in order to get even coverage on my lips. The big issue was that I could not press my lips together, not even once, whether intentionally, accidentally, or while talking, or else the color would lift away noticeably. I tried leaving the color alone for a solid five minutes in case there was some “dry down” that I needed to wait for (nothing about the texture suggested that), but it didn’t help. The strange part was that it stayed on well with respect to drinking/light meals but if the product came in contact with itself, it gave up. I tried not to press my lips together, but inevitably, just talking proved enough to cause patchiness within an hour of wear that worsened over time. (Please reference Sunfrost, where I took a photo after gently pressing my lips together, not even rubbing, just a gentle press, and see how much lifting occurred–it continued to lift as long as I had it on.)

Banana Frost

Banana Frost is a pale, yellow gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation in a single layer with a firm, thin consistency that had a lot of waxiness to it, which helped it glide decently over my skin, but it did not have enough creaminess to apply easily to lids, lash lines, or lips without some tugging/pulling. It was easiest to use as an inner tear duct highlighter or as a wash all-over the lid but has to be applied directly from the tube as there was no color payoff if applied with fingertips (everything remained stuck to my fingertip!).

It performed poorly as a lipstick: it applied unevenly, emphasized lip texture, separated along my lip lines (and settled there), lifted if I dared press my lips together (even just talking), adhered poorly to the inner area of my lips, and looked even patchier and more uneven within an hour of wear. The “wear” as a lipstick was poor, though some of the color clung to my lips for a good six hours otherwise. The formula was drying on my lips.

Parka Princess

Parka Princess is a medium, rosy copper with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was somewhat buildable, but it had little room for error as more than two layers resulted in product separating and creating patchiness. The texture felt smooth, lightly waxy, and was very thin with an immediate dry down (no time to blend or play at all–blending resulted in the product flaking away).

As an eyeliner, it didn’t tug too much, but it didn’t deposit color evenly and blending it was no help as it made it worse by lifting/causing product to flake off. As an eyeshadow, it applied a bit better when I used it directly from the tube but couldn’t use my fingertips or a brush at all as nothing would translate, but I could not do much about the edges as the product started to lift and flake off when I attempted to soften the edges. As a lip product, it did not emphasize my lip texture as much as other shades and was less prone to separating and settling, though it did not adhere well to my upper lip nor the inner area of my lip.

It lasted for six hours as an eyeliner before flaking a bit and eight hours as eyeshadow. It was really only looking good for mere moments as a lip product, as gently pressing my lips together resulted in the product lifting away and revealing patchiness, though I continued to test it as if it didn’t look like Swiss cheese and parts of the color clung for a solid five hours, though the formula was drying.

Guava Mint

Guava Mint is a medium, rosy taupe with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had medium color coverage that was buildable to opaque pigmentation with two to three layers, but it often ended up looking patchy when I tried this on my actual lids and lips (not just arm). The texture felt smooth initially with moderate waxiness, but it lacked creaminess and some thickness to give it more playtime and ease of application.

It applied unevenly as an eyeliner, and when I tried to blend it, the color flaked off in places. As an eyeshadow, I had to apply it directly from the tube and couldn’t blend along the edges (even when I worked quickly) because it set almost instantly and blending resulted in dislodging the product on my lid, which created lovely bald patches.

As a lipstick, I was able to get nearly opaque coverage with it, but it did tug and pull on my lips, while the product felt clingy, emphasized my lip texture, and lifted away and revealed a patchwork quilt of disappointment if I pressed my lips together ever-so-gently. This product was so unforgiving and finicky to use when often jumbo-sized, multi-tasking pencils are aimed to streamline one’s routine. It lasted for six hours on my waterline, seven hours on my lash line, and eight hours on my lid. Some of the product lingered for as long as six hours on my lips, but it looked like leopard print within two hours due to the product lifting away so easily, and it was drying over time as a lip product.

I didn’t have high hopes for these (multiuse products seem to underperform in one or both applications compared to ones intended for a specific use), but solid Fs are disappointing nonetheless.

I didn’t think they’d be great on lips since they’re a pencil format + metallic, but I expected they’d be fine on eyes, lol.

Because I have watched a YT’er named Angelika review and use a set of these pencils live a few days ago, I pretty much knew these were a fail. She was left highly unimpressed and very disappointed in these. Same complaint about how they are a pain to work with, and one could see why. PASS.

Wow! I loved the look of these, but I will be skipping! Anything that tugs, pulls, nope! And not pigmented on top of that. Double nope! Thank you for the timely review!

Guava Mint is a lovely shade – all of these are a major disappointment re the formula. I guess this is what happens when you try to make one product work for three – lipstick, eyeliner and eyeshadow.

I picked this set up on a whim, (you would think I would learn my lesson since I almost always wait for your reviews), when I was in Missoula last week but I hadn’t used it yet. Coincidentally, I used it this morning prior to reading your post. I was shocked at how badly these perform, on all levels. The tugging on my eye lids was just the worst and if you didn’t get 100% dead on application with the first pass you won’t be able to blend as they dry down so quickly. Not really dry down since they aren’t wet but they set where you put them and don’t budge, which if you were getting good application wouldn’t be a bad thing. When you have crepey eye lids to begin with and then this pencil tugging and skipping over the lid it looks just horrible. I would never use these on my eyes again and like you said, the lips are even worse. I picked up a set for my daughter for her advent calendar this year but they are going back. I was rather shocked as I hadn’t really heard anything about these and based on most of Fenty’s previous releases I thought I was safe in purchasing.
They are pretty colours though.

So sad you had to experience the disappointment yourself, Deborah, but I am personally relieved to hear I wasn’t the only one who struggled with this formula a lot!

What an epic fail… I expected that they would be better on the eyes or on the lips, not that they would be terrible in both cases. I had my eyes on the cool toned trio, money saved!

I watched several videos on these. I saw Jeffree Star swatch one of these on his hand and it looked beautiful and when he put it on his eye it was barely there.The Blue Pencil in one of the other sets seemed to work well on him and another YouTuber Shopper Mandy.I won’t be purchasing any of these pencils.The fact that they performed worse on the lips is so sad!!

I very much found that these looked great swatched on my arm or hand, and they don’t seem to budge or move, but in practice? Different experience!

Shockeroo! This must have been so unpleasant, especially given fairly great expectations (that &^^& Dickens again) for Fenty. You are working like a beaver to get these out for your readership. Then to have to relate this bad news, and specify WHY must really have been a chore. Difficult to soldier on, when you had to stop dead in your tracks and say, ‘What IS this, and why is it so abominable?’ You certainly took one for the team on these. I swatched the cooler set and was pretty unimpressed with those as well.

I was unsure about how necessary testing the products as lipsticks was given the fact that they lift so much/badly that they just look… awful… after the first press/rub of the lips, so does it REALLY matter if some parts of it last four hours or whatever?

Yikes…just yikes. I guess they got a bit ambitious trying to make a two-in-one product. They look like dried out eyeliners.

I just swatched them in the store yesterday and I thought they looked dull and couldn’t imagine them on the lips, so your comments are in line with my own observation. I compared them to the 3-pack hippies and they don’t compare at all with the brillance and texture of the lipsticks that came out in this collection. I can’t see how they’d work (in comfort or color on the lips). And even for the eyes, I’d think they’d be muted for metallics.

Yes, and I just saw I wrote hippies vs. hippies! LOL! I won’t be getting them though because I only like one of the colors (can’t remember which one) so the trio concept isn’t a winner in Fenty’s Holiday release.

Man this is so disappointing….the Fenty crayons were the holiday item I was most excited about, particularly the purple/blue/silver set. Your review confirmed my in-person experience w/ them. I swatched them in-store, they were bad. Multiple swipes just to get any pigmentation, very flaky and dry, and absolutely could not them to blend no matter how hard I tried.

I’m surprised Rihanna would okay a product of this subpar quality under her name.

I wonder if the store ones were dried out at all – they seem like the type of pencil that has very little room for exposure (like if you forgot to put the cap on) because of how thin/how fast they set fresh.

I did find they glided on just fine on my arm/hand (that’s why I’m surprised that your in-person experience was poor for pigmentation and texture!) but everywhere else was a big no! I definitely wasn’t able to blend much on my arm/hand.

Yeah I had initially wondered that too. But the Sephora SA said they had just received them that day, and the caps were on during my afternoon visit. Hmmm does not seem to bode well for the longevity of the product.

Anyways thank you again for all you and your team do 🙂 Hope y’alls face don’t get too irritated from all the holiday swatching!

How sad – I have loved and used pens like Caviar Sticks not just for eyes, mostly with success, but I suppose it really is a problem of trying to do too much with one formula!

I tried to swatch these at Sephora yesterday, because I was thinking of buying this set for a friend who loves rose gold. The testers at the store had been left without their caps on so they were dried out and I had to press hard and rub back and forth to get them to work, which resulted in a chunky application! That said, when I brushed away the chunks, the colors were pretty so I thought “Well maybe it would be OK if the lid is left on, but what if it’s like that bad batch of Marc Jacobs liners and dries out even when capped?” Now I see your review and I am glad I didn’t just order it last week when I ordered one of the lipstick sets!

At least those MJB liners stayed creamy for a bit, LOL.

Given how fast they set after use in a brand new state, I’m not surprised the testers seemed to dry out already!

I am going to say it the way I see it. Lately, Fenty is banking on Rihanna name.only to sell. Their last releases are so underwhelming and I feel like they are releasing kid makeup.
