Rollin' Dice

Fenty Beauty Rollin’ Dice Liquid Diamond Bomb ($28.00 for 0.44 oz.) has a clear base with flecks of larger silver sparkle and micro-glitter. It had semi-sheer “coverage” from all the sparkle, which had some shine and twinkle, but the only way it was visible was applied directly from the rollerball and left to dry without blending, spreading, or otherwise touching it. The dry down took 20 to 30 seconds, and it never felt sticky or tacky.

However, this can result in noticeable patchiness along with a sharper, harsher line of where the highlighter has been applied, so it didn’t end up translating well as a cheek highlighter at all. As a body highlighter, it might be more forgiving, though it has such a tiny applicator (and a small amount of product) for a body product. When I used my fingertip to pick up product to pat it onto my skin, it applied unevenly over bare skin with little product transferring to my skin (a lot of it stuck to my fingertip) and created patchiness over foundation.

What little product was visible after application managed to stick around for five hours and then half of it had migrated (but keep in mind, it might have been a dozen sparkles/micro-glitters that had applied initially!). I tried using a stippling brush as well as a flat-topped buffer brush, and the results remained dismal. The product wasn’t transfer-resistant and easily came off on clothes, too.

The bottle is incredibly small–looks like a miniature nail polish–and has a rollerball applicator, which is tiny for body application and terrible for face application unless you’re applying over clean, bare skin. Otherwise, the rollerball will roll over your base and complexion products, transferring onto it, and can cause the rollerball to get stuck. The glitter settles easily, and it took 10-15 seconds just to loosen the metal mixing ball loose to actually mix up the product. Sometimes the rollerball got stuck with just the glitter particles.

While it might have intended to be a liquid version of the original Diamond Bomb, it didn’t perform nearly as well.

I’ve read several critical reviews and nearly everything you mentioned was covered- bad product, bad application, bad packaging. It’s weird to see products like this end up on the market, like no one took the time to do any testing or R&D. Is there any way you could possibly give us a size comparison to something like a MAC Lipstick? I think that would be a good standard unit we could all picture fairly well; because everyone says it’s tiny and compares it to a small nail polish bottle, but there are at least ten “small” polishes I can think of from different companies in different shapes and sizes. I’d gladly just go to a brick-and-mortar Sephora and look but I live an hour away from my closest store, so people like me in the boondocks don’t have as much access to certain conveniences.

Nail polish usually holds 0.50 fl. oz., and this is just under, so it’s pretty comparable with respect to that – the handle is shorter than most nail polishes. Maybe an inch tall for the bottle?

Flops like this and the highlighter you reviewed earlier – they are the sorts of things that will turn quite a few people off a brand (well, it’ll do it for me and I’m sure I’m not alone). I wonder if Fenty has fallen prey to the trap of just releasing WAAAY too much new stuff without focusing on quality.

😂
I swatched this in store and it looked oddly like cheap fake glitter particles. Hard to articulate how bad it was.
This coulda been a contender.
Easy (though sad) pass.

Ugh. This rollerball highlighter just falls flat for me. Just another disappointing product in a sea of many much better products.

Gee, in the 90s, I had a DS coppery orange shimmer mist spray that was quite nice, for ~1/10 of the price and vastly more quantity, not to mention quality. (The Fenty bottle brought me back in time.) Maybe this should have been a bigger spray body HL. Why would anyone think a liquid glitter rollerball would be a good idea? It begs to be uneven application.

Oh Fenty. But I’m looking forward to the Gloss Bomb mini-set and hope that those reviews take a bit of the sting out of these subpar holiday items!
