FENTY BEAUTY GALAXY COLLECTION

FENTY BEAUTY GALAXY COLLECTION

Is everyone ready for the stunner that the Fenty Beauty Galaxy Collections is ? I know I am. I have been so very busy these past few weeks, and not in much of a frame of mind to do a write up and post on here. So please excuse my absence, but I am back. And I am back with the highly hyped Fenty Beauty Galaxy Collection.

The Fenty beauty Galaxy Collection seems to be a very curated launch, mainly focused on sparkle for the eyes and lips. The whole collection, as of this moment of me writing this, seems to be limited edition. Now, I reviewed Fenty beauty launch here, and the launch was very much focused on the skin. But upping the game with her holiday release, we have a range of products catering to highlighting eyes and lips now. The colors, the names, everything – I am, in love.

The Bling Factor - Fenty Beauty Galaxy Palette

Fenty Beauty Galaxy Palette

Lets start with the star of the launch, the Fenty Beauty Galaxy Eyeshadow palette (59$, 14 x 0.04 oz / 1.4 gm). From Sephora:

What it is:
A limited-edition glitter eyeshadow palette of 14 star-dusted shades designed to accessorize any eye look.

What it does:
Launch your eye look into a new glittersphere with the limited-edition Galaxy Eyeshadow Palette. Hyper-reflective sparkle meets a rainbow of 14 celestial-inspired colors that range from sheer, glittering topcoats to smoky, shimmer-drenched hues. Like jewelry for your eyes, these glimmering eyeshadows and topcoats are the ultimate accessory to every look.

From smoky, iridescent violet to gold glitter on mint, Galaxy is studded with unique color and glitter combos that deliver a phenomenal 3D effect. Featured in a sleek, oversized, jewel-inspired case, this transformative palette gives you infinite ways to get mega-lit.

This set contains:
14 x 0.04 oz/ 1.4 g Eyeshadows in Xtra Terrestrial (smoky moss with iridescent green), Lightyear (smoky charcoal with gold glitter), Planet Ex (smoky brown with iridescent glitter), Oh-Zone (sheer platinum glitter), Ultraviolit (smoky violet with iridescent glitter), Sublime (sheer mint and gold glitter), Milky Way (ivory with iridescent glitter), Cosmic Ocean (sheer aqua glitter), Meteor Crush (sheer pink and gold glitter), Jupiter Sand (smoky chocolate with iridescent purple), Mars On Fire (sheer copper rose glitter), Midnight Bolt (true blue with superfine glitter), Space Owt (smoky grape with holographic blue), Sunburst (amber with gold glitter)

Fenty Beauty is 100 percent cruelty-free.

This palette is beyond gorgeous. A lot of people have commented that the packaging, formula and texture reminds them of the Urban Decay Moondust palette. And personally, I don’t think the same. These eyeshadow are much smoother to the touch, and have a better base pigment than the Urban Decay Moondust shadows. More importantly, most of the shades in the Fenty Beauty Galaxy palette also are duochromes, which are stunning in the light.

I did not use these with primer on the eyes, but I did have a cream eyeshadow as a base for these to adhere to. They stayed on beautifully for 10+ hours, no fading or migrating what so ever. While applying, there is minute fallout, but nothing too bad or unexpected for glitter eyeshadows.

The eyeshadow shade range is beautiful, and you really have a lot of options to go from day time glitter to really sultry or colorful looks. The only con of this palette, is that there is no matte shade at all. So you will need a complementary matte palette or shades to be able to achieve a cohesive look, which is not too shimmery. Some of these shades are a bit more chunky than others, but still work very nicely. I apply these with my fingers, as I find that is the best way to apply glitter eyeshadows. All the swatches are dry, but if you wet these shadows, they are much more intense.

The Bling Factor - Fenty Beauty Eclipse 2-In-1 Glitter Release Eyeliner

Fenty Beauty Eclipse 2-In-1 Glitter Release Eyeliner

I also picked up the very unique Eclipse 2-In-1 Glitter Release Eyeliners (20$, 0.13 oz / 4ml) in all the shades; Later, Crater/Nepturnt/Alien Bae. From Sephora:

What it is:
A limited-edition liquid eyeliner with a transforming metallic-to-glitter formula that lets you choose your own finish.

What it does:
Shimmer into a new color orbit with the limited-edition Eclipse 2-in-1 Glitter Release Eyeliner. This transforming metallic-to-glitter liquid eyeliner goes where no other has gone before by letting you choose your own finish.

Take your pick: low-key metallic or high-impact sparkle? Eclipse delivers both worlds in one with its revolutionary blend of intense pigment and pearlescence that dries to a sleek, metallic finish. And it doesn’t stop there. Rub it when it’s dry to reveal a surprising glitter effect. This liner puts the power to go from day to play literally at your fingertips.

Born in three otherworldly shades, Eclipse’s precision bristle tip and smooth-glide formula were made for effortless application.

These are so unique, and so beautiful. Applied, they are matte/satin shades on the eyes. But of you want to amp up the look, you just need to rub on them a bit, and the glitter pops up, so SO stunning. And so easy to use as well. Later, Crater is such a unique shade, a light pink with golden sparkles, gorgeous !

The Bling Factor - Fenty Beauty Starlit Hyper-Glitz Lipstick in Supermoon

Fenty Beauty Starlit Hyper-Glitz Lipstick in Supermoon

My final picks were the lip products, and they do not disappoint. I picked up the Starlit Hyper-glitz Lipstick in Supermoon (19$, 0.045 oz / 1.3 gm). It is described a light peach shade. From Sephora:

What it is:
A limited-edition metallic lipstick that’s buildable to the ultimate jewel chrome finish.

What it does:
When the stars align, metal and cream collide in Starlit Hyper-Glitz Lipstick. This shimmering lip color delivers the look and feel of your favorite lip balm dipped in liquefied jewels. In four lustrous limited-edition shades, Starlit’s color-soaked microshimmers reflect a jewel chrome sheen that can be built up to your desired level of impact. And thanks to their irresistibly creamy texture, you get all the glitz, minus the grit, so lips look and feel beyond stellar.

These lipsticks are beautiful, and I want to pick up the hot pink shade soon. I hope it stays in stock. These are balmy, sheer but sparkly lipsticks. They  don’t feel gritty at all, in fact the opposite. Very comfortable on the lips. As much as I like this light peach nude by itself, I love it over a nude lip for an added pop to the look.

The Bling Factor - Fenty Beauty Cosmic Gloss Lip Glitter in Spacesuit

Fenty Beauty Cosmic Gloss Lip Glitter in Spacesuit

The collection also has duochrome looking glosses, by far so unique in shades and so comfortable on the lips. Meet the Cosmic Gloss Lip Glitter in Spacesuit (19$, 0.34 oz / 9.7 ml). It is described as a glittering peach. From Sephora:

What it is:
A limited-edition glitter-packed lip gloss that delivers the ultimate triple threat of creamy color, glitter, and shine.

What it does:
Transform your lips, your look, and your world. Cosmic Gloss Lip Glitter is a triple-threat fusion of pigment, glitter, and gloss that takes sparkle to astronomical new heights. Each hue is packed with iridescent glitter and drenched in mirror-like shine for a mega-dose of multidimensional shimmer in just one swipe. Unlike other glitter lip glosses, Cosmic Gloss is designed to be unbelievably smooth and creamy for out-of-this-world shine plus phenomenal comfort.

This gloss is so comfortable on, not sticky or gloopy. Not too pigmented or too sheer. The lip products also smell heavenly. The colors are stunning, so much dimension. I am loving how adding these to the middle of the lips can take any look from normal to glam in seconds.

I for one, am loving everything I got in this launch. I would say, go in store and have look to truly see what I mean. Because pictures don’t do this collection any justice, the textures and finishes are the reason you will love them. Have you tried anything from this launch ? Let me know below.

Update: I am seeing a LOT of people say how this is too much glitter, or it is kids makeup. While I respect your views, please do understand that swatches on someone, in some particular light, of any product, is never the true story. What I mean is, it will look different on your skin tone, and how much pressure you apply, and under what light you actually wear it. These eyeshadows are super smooth, as I have mentioned. They don’t feel cheap or tacky. They glow beautifully on the eyes, something no picture can ever capture. Now, you personally may not like glittery eyeshadow, and that’s okay. But no reason to knock it down, when you didn’t try it or it’s not your taste.

    Omg these swatches are out of this world!!! I touched a couple of the eyeshadow shades in store yesterday and was surprised by how smooth they were. I have been waiting for your review to see how the formula wears and now I’m nervous that I need this! The lip colors look gorgeous, and the liners are so interesting!
