Fenty Glow (Universal)

Fenty Beauty Universal Gloss Bomb Lip Luminizer ($18.00 for oz.) is a medium, rosy brown with warm undertones and fine gold and pink pearl. It had a high-gloss finish that was noticeably shiny and mirror-like.

The formula is supposed to have a “peach-vanilla” scent (I’d agree–sweet, lightly fruity) and be “conditioning.” It was designed to be worn alone or layered over other lip products. The consistency was very smooth, light-to-medium in weight, non-sticky, and comfortable to wear. It had a plusher consistency that helped it stay out of most of my lip lines. The shimmer was moderate but noticeable, and it distributed evenly across the lips. The coverage was medium, not really buildable, and may be less visible on someone with more neutral, mid-tone natural lip color. On me, the gloss lasted for three hours but was hydrating.

This has been sitting in my cart since the release date because I usually don’t like gloss but it looked like it was gonna be good – thanks for the review because I needed the push to order! And you look super pumped to be wearing it! LOL

I went ahead and bought this today after I saw it on Tati. I just never seem to have the chance to reapply my lipstick during the day and this has enough color to it to provide some polish. It is shiny though.

This is a pass for me. Colors like this don’t show up on my pigmented lips…just looks like clear gloss. If there were more colors I’d be game…depending on reviews.

Loving how plush this one looks! That’s what I look for in a gloss; super shiny and plush. First, I have got to use up a few of my somewhat similar type glosses. They’re not dupes exactly, but once applied, they may appear more similar than not.

This is the only product I bought from the launch and I like it! Not exactly life-changing, but it’s a nice, flattering gloss for most skin tones.

I like the product, but I wish the scent had been taken down a notch. Also, I’m surprised by reviews that describe the coverage as ‘medium’. My lips are super pale, and I noted very little added color with this gloss. Shiny and pretty, though!

To me this is a conditioning lip gloss. As a lip gloss, it’s nice but nothing to run home about. However, after wearing it for a bit I realized that my lips have become incredibly soft. To me this is a lip gloss and treatment in one. I’m obsessed with it.

Looks like a really nice everyday lip gloss, but I just don’t know if I would splurge that much on gloss! The NYX Butter Glosses do the job just fine for me 🙂 Looking forward to your reviews on the other Fenty products! I bought the foundation and I’m quite impressed by it!

I really admire the concept behind Fenty beauty, but I have to say this one ‘lil lip offering kinda shocked me with Rhianna. Yup, I get it..basics. But it’s not a shade I would wear. Heard the texture on it is very good and not sticky and gross.
I’m looking forward to narrowing down my other choices with the collection. Got an email last night from big S and they cancelled my sample of 150 🙁 Out of stock. Crap. I think it may have run too light for me after seeing more images. Anyone with anecedotal info on shade choices, I would love to hear. I’m NC20 ish with light olive skin. Thinking maybe 190 mixed with a tiny bit of her darker neutral olive shade.. just enough to help with undertone.

Definitely a great gloss. I think this is a really strong product in the line and I think it’s one of the more slept on products from her launch. I can wear this alone and it gives me “my lips but better” or over a lipstick and it makes that color pop nicely. Definitely a great first lip product release from Rihanna. I love putting on one of the shimmer sticks on my lips and popping this gloss over it. So pretty.

Christine, does this resemble MAC Power Supply? I can’t tell. I’m always looking for a similar shade like PS, but less sticky! And, I agree, this looks lovely on you.

I REALLY thought I would like this. The color is prefect , high shine but it felt so thick on the lips and the smell bleh. It does smell like some cheap lip smacker type product I got as a kid lol. So disappointing it had to go back but I love buxom and this didn’t compare
