Killawatt Foil

Fenty Beauty Killawatt Foil Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Palette ($54.00 for 0.70 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette featuring seven hues designed for highlighting the eyes and cheeks. Those who don’t find all the shades usable to highlight cheeks will be able to use those shades as eyeshadows. There were only two shades that I feel really stood out in the palette and were truest to the Killawatt formula: Stone Cold and Hunny Slope. Shades like Chillz, Scandal’ice, and Coppin Ice have larger sparkles/shimmer to them and less pigmentation, and I don’t think this was conveyed that well through the marketing on this. This is definitely a palette most suitable for someone who likes more sparkle and glitter in their products. Worth noting, the palette is thicker cardboard, which was unexpected compared to past Fenty palettes of similar size/price point.

Stone Cold

Stone Cold has a pale, mauve base with warmer undertones and bluish-teal pearl paired with a sparkling, metallic finish. The powder had rich pigmentation with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that wasn’t too dense nor too firmly-pressed in the pan, so it applied well as an eyeshadow but could also diffuse and blend out significantly for sheerer coverage on cheeks, though it emphasized my skin texture a bit on my cheeks. It was the most complex shade in the palette (I could see this doing well as a single). On me, it wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.28 oz. - $128.57 Per Ounce

The formula is described ranging from “subtle dayglow to insanely supercharged” with a “cream-powder hybrid” formula that feels “weightless” and is long-wearing. They can also be used on the eyes, body, lips, and so forth, per the brand. They feel like a traditional powder, but they have a smooth, moderately dense texture that doesn’t kick up a lot of excess product in the pan but also does not feel stiff or difficult to pickup with the brush. The finishes varied from shade to shade; where Metal Moon was the most subtle and had a satin-to-pearl finish, Trophy Wife was the most over-the-top with chunky, obvious glitter and less base color compared to the other shades.

The duos featured a light-to-moderate highlighter on the left and then a more sparkly, metallic highlighter on the right with the exception of Ginger Binge/Moscow Mule, where the left shade (Ginger Binge) was more intense (possibly owing to the richer color and payoff). In general, I found the left, more subtle side of each duo to be sheer to semi-sheer, somewhat buildable, whereas the right, more metallic side was substantially more pigmented. All of the more intense highlighters (Trophy Wife and the right side of the duos) did accentuate the look of my skin’s natural texture to some degree.

For use on the eye, they worked better with a slightly dampened brush, as it gave the powder a bit more binding powder for better adherence to the lid, but the ones I tried on the lid were blendable and easy to apply with no real concerns from the application itself other than the potential for fallout over time.

Chillz

Chillz seemed to have a translucent, silvery-white base with flecks of blue-to-teal sparkle and micro-glitter. The texture was drier and more powdery compared to what I’ve experienced with other Killawatt shades, including the ones in the palette. This worked better for layering than as a standalone shade, though I had a lot of trouble getting the sparkles to stay in place as they seemed to travel all over my face over the eight hours it lasted for.

Scandal'ice

Scandal’ice is a pale lavender with cool, blue undertones and flecks of blue micro-glitter and sparkle. It had medium color coverage but had a tendency to sheer out as it had a looser consistency that just didn’t hold together as well. It worked best as a layering shade rather than a standalone color. The powder applied well to cheeks as a highlighter, but the sparkles moved around a lot when I blended and traveled while worn. As an eyeshadow, it had some fallout but did blend out decently. It wore nicely for eight hours but again, had fallout/sparkles traveling while worn.

Hunny Slope

Hunny Slope is a pop of medium orange with warm, golden shimmer. The color payoff was opaque in a single layer, while the powder had a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that was blendable and easy to work with. I found it as easy to use on my cheeks as it was on my lids with respect to blending and being able to diffuse the edges. It lasted nicely for eight and a half hours on me (eyes and cheeks).

Coppin Ice

Coppin Ice is a medium-dark bronze with warm undertones and a glittery finish. It had good pigmentation, though it had a chunkier, more loosely-pressed texture. It worked best with a fingertip or a dampened brush for placement on the eyes to avoid fallout during application. On my cheeks, I used a flat-topped cheek buffing brush to gently press and then buff in small, circular motions to get even coverage without moving the sparkles beyond my cheek area. This shade applied well to lids and cheeks with a smooth, even application that stayed on well for eight and a half hours–but it did have some fallout/migration of sparkles.

Heart Burn

Heart Burn is a deep, plummy brown with warm undertones and a satin sheen. The powder had excellent pigmentation with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that wasn’t too dense in the pan, so it picked up well with a brush and applied evenly to my skin. I found it blended out fairly well, but the color was harder to diffuse and sheer out on my cheeks as it was quite pigmented. It wore well for eight and a half hours on cheeks and eyes for me.

Subzero

Subzero is a medium-dark blue with cool undertones and flecks of silver and blue sparkle. The texture was more firmly-pressed in the pan with a drier feel overall, which resulted in more ragged edges when blended out–particularly noticeable when I wore it on my cheeks. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was hard to build up; I had to use a dampened brush to get better coverage and application. It lasted well for eight hours on me but had some sparkles that traveled on my cheeks or fell off my lids over time.

I finger swatched this palette in Missoula this past Friday and wasn’t all that impressed. It all felt very chalky to me and I don’t feel like buying another palette that really only works as an eye shadow for me.

A few shades are definitely drier compared to the typical Killawatt formula, whether intentional or not (like Chillz and Scandal’ice seem like they might intend them to be sheerer, at least with the base pigment).

I absolutely adore Stone Cold. I would buy it in a single, or even a duo, in a heart beat. None of the dupes have that same specialness, not mention that a large percentage are LE and/or got poor reviews.

Exactly. Hope they’re listening. I got so excited by it and the dupes, that I used Lorac ametrine and put on ametrine jewelry! The palette is an underperformer. But that one shade is TDF.

Yes!! I searched in store and I was skeptical that it could be a highlighter on my fairer skin, but it sheered out beautifullly and is a gorgeous unique eyeshadow!! I have the tarte dupe, but it’s not nearly as multi-dimensional. If this were a single I’d buy it in a heartbeat! the rest were meh. Hope you’re listening, Fenty!!

This is a literal tug-of-war of a decision on whether to totally pass on this, or wait for it to clearance out, which I suspect it will. It has 4 shades in it that I absolutely love: Stone Cold, Heart Burn, Hunny Slope and Coppin’ Ice. But, I’m fairly certain that I can find something close to each one if I try.

This is a tad disappointing that the formula has changed for this palette. The shade rating yo-yoed from A to C, which indicates a lot of inconsistancies. None of the shades, apart from Stone Cold, are really that special either.

Stone Cold is really pretty. I wish brands would come out with more mauve highlighters, so we could have more dupe options.

The rest of the palette is unimpressive, though. Even the color scheme is throwing me off…something about those colors don’t mesh together.

I think it’s that they are mixing (deliberately) cooler and warmer tones, and since there aren’t a lot of shades, it might not flow together like other palettes.

I have this palette and love it. There are different textures in this palette. The shade hunny slope is the best highlighter shade I have found for my skin. I love the wet highlighter look but I have never found a cream, gel, liquid or powder that does this. It is a lovely creamy powder that blends so well. I wish it was sold separately. I find stone cold and subzero too glittery for my face but nice for my eyes. Chillz and scandal ice are great for my inner corner or on top of eyeshadow to make it reflective. Heartburn is a beautiful metallic blusher for me, it reminds me of the the extra dimension blusher from mac called hard to get.

I was really surprised by how gaga people were going over the packing. Compared to ALL the other Fenty products, this cardboard packaging is a huge step down for me.
