Beauty Brand Review: Fenty Beauty's Match Stix
Ever since Colourpop discontinued their contour sticks and my personal ban against Tarte after its shade range debacle, I've been struggling to find new contour products as well as some sort of concealer to rival Shape Tape. I've been using the drugstore brand Profusion powder contour, but I know I wanted something more. It took me a while (and a lot of self control) to convince myself to invest in new makeup just because I don't want to keep hoarding, but now that I've tried Fenty Beauty's products... I'm here for it.
Last week, I purchased two Fenty Beauty Match Stix, which can act as highlight, concealer, and contour. These products come in twenty shades ranging from light and dark tones to peachy pink tones. You know Rihanna doesn't play around when it comes to shade range.
The product itself looks a lot like a hybrid between KKW Beauty packaging and Colourpop's stick concealer. The packaging is a little light, which makes it look a little cheaper. However, as an ensemble, the products come together to look a little like a honeycomb. That's pretty neat.
In terms of product quality, it reminds me a lot of the Tarte Face Slenderizer but with more of a dense texture and product rigidity. The product itself has a seemingly high glitter content, so if you're not about shine and want a more matte look, this might not be the product for you.
The product blends out easily with a damp beauty blender and applies seemlessly. The rigid nature of the crayon-like applicator gives you a lot of control and is generally forgiving for those who might not be familiar with contouring.
The product retails for $25 each. I'd say overall the product rates about a 4.5/5. I haven't run into many issues with it at all. It has longwear power and just the amount of shine you want.
