Fenty Beauty Ginger Binge/Moscow Mule Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo ($34.00 for 0.24 oz.) contains two rose golds–one lighter, one deeper–and both are quite shimmery with high-shine finishes. This duo will be most suitable for someone who likes richer, more pigmented highlighters with metallic to glittery finishes and isn’t concerned when highlighters accentuate the skin’s natural texture. I felt the quality of the left side of the duo was better than the other duos.

Fenty Beauty Yacht Life Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick ($25.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a vibrant, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a golden sheen. It had medium coverage that was buildable to opaque coverage with two layers. The shimmer seemed to be finer in this particular shade than others, and I felt like this helped it apply more evenly and sit better on the skin (with or without a base). It gave a luminous glow that was moderate in intensity but not accentuating of my skin’s natural texture.

The consistency was lightweight, thin, and creamy enough not to drag on the skin or apply unevenly, but it was more powder-like during application (at all points except when it was still in the tube!). The color stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly.

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” and has "buildable, creaseproof" coverage. 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.
