Fenty Beauty Cognac is a slightly warm-toned, very dark brown with a pearl finish. It is a permanent blush that retails for $25.00 and contains 0.25 oz.
Fenty Beauty Cognac Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick ($25.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a deep, coppery brown with warm, reddish undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque pigmentation when applied directly from the tube, and more medium, buildable coverage when applied with a brush or fingertip. The texture felt smooth, slightly emollient (but not wet or creamy), and it had enough slip that I could transfer product from my fingertip to my cheeks without it drying down entirely.
The cream blush was thin, more power-like when applied to my cheeks, and it dried down fast enough that I felt like I had to work very quickly to diffuse the edges of the blush. It didn't blend out as evenly as I could, unfortunately, and as a result, the permanent version performed somewhat worse compared to the holiday mini release did. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading visibly.
