Fenty Beauty Ridiiic Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick Review, Photos, Swatches


Fenty Beauty Ridiiic Match Stix Shimmer SkinstickFenty Beauty Ridiiic Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick ($25.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a rich, tomato red with warm, orange undertones and flecks of golden pearl strewn throughout the color. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, and the pigmentation was high enough where even just a dab was plenty of product to diffuse for a stain-like color on the cheeks. Despite having a powder-like dry down on the skin, it looked dewy due to the sheen from the shimmer. The formula was smooth, thin, but creamy enough that I was able to apply and blend out the blush with ease on my skin, even over foundation. This shade stayed on well for nine 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.

Ok now this and Mango Chili have been really impressive. I’ve never really worn colors like this before, but I’ll check them out

Yesterday evening, as I stood debating with myself between Chili Mango and Ridiiic, with swatches for comparison on my hand and arm…I did eventually decide on Chili Mango. The catch? Now I have to get this one, too! Probably not this month, but very soon. Ridiiic is red cheek PERFECTION!

I ordered this color (Ridiiic) along with Chili Mango from Sephora 9/29. They look gorg on Everyone so far, I need Sephora to hurry it up! I try to avoid dupes and I don’t have one for this, so I’m excited!

Well there goes another one on the list for my friend haha.
This is what I wanted the Too Faced ones to be like, I’m glad these did better.

Off topic: Thank you for the HUGE amount of work you are doing to help us all deal with holiday shopping! I cannot believe how much content you are generating this past week. Wishing you a yummy treat to eat, a cup of calm tea, and a good night’s sleep.

P.S. I see why that Ridiiic got an A+. It is really flattering (for an orange! Wow, I cannot even imagine how insanely awesome it will look on deeper skin tones).
