Makeup enthusiasts will love the Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Match Stix Contour SkinStick. The application is wonderful, and the stick offers long wear and is really easy to blend color, leaving the face looking as light as air matte.

On September 8, 2017, Fenty Beauty by Rihanna, a cosmetics brand helmed by the popular singer (whose full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty), was launched. Fenty Beauty was created so women and men all across the world could find makeup that best fits their skin tone, focusing on the hard-to-match skin tones.

With now 50 different shades, Fenty Beauty makes it easy for users to match their unique skin tone and type.

On her website, Rihanna said, “Makeup is there to have fun with. It should never feel like pressure. It should never feel like a uniform.”

Rihanna’s goal for the brand is so that women (and men) everywhere can feel included.

The Match Stix Contour Skinstick is highly recommended. On Sephora’s website alone, there are more than 1000 reviews from  people who thought the product was amazing, reviewing it with more than 4 stars on average.

Contouring involves using a blend of colors to accentuate certain facial features – it adds dimension to the face. At just $28, the Match Stix Contour Skinstick is a must-buy because it lasts a long time and leaves the face looking flawless, not cakey. The product is easy to use. Like most contour products, it is buildable and easy to blend. and lightweight, with no creasing. Every time people use this product, their face will love it.

The buildable aspect of this product is what really makes it good. Users will quickly realize it does not matter if they get a shade that fails to perfectly fit their skin tone because the product makes it easy to build layers and create custom blends.

No matter how much product one adds trying to build the color to one’s liking, the Match Stix Contour Skinstick will do its job, all the while feeling light weight and without a cakey finish. Building the product up to one’s liking is important because makeup should, ideally, be left up to the individual user’s particular liking. In using this contour stick, makeup applicants will get exactly what they are looking for without feeling like they are wearing a thick layer of product.

Nothing is worse than not finding the right shade for one’s skin tone. With this product, no one has to worry about that issue: there are over 20 different shades available with the Match Stix Contour Skinstick, which makes it simple to find a given tone.

It is really important for a makeup company to offer many different shades and varieties – people all over the world have different skin types and shades, and Fenty Beauty by Rihanna makes it their mission to include those people with its products. Looking for a shade is easy to do thanks to the pictures Fenty Beauty includes online – photos that realistically live up to the actual shade of the product once a customer has it in hand.

Those interested can also shop at Ulta and Sephora if they want to see the product first-hand and make use of the store’s testers.

Aside from the product being buildable and including different shades for all skin tones, it is important to note the Fenty Beauty Match Stix Contour Skinstick also comes in great packaging which makes the product even easier to apply.

The packaging used to be magnetic, a feature that made the stick’s cap snap back into place after use, but in 2021, Fenty made some changes to the packaging. They removed the magnetic feature for the sake of the earth, since magnets often use rare earth metals.

Nonetheless, the skinstick is still easy-to-open and use thanks to its sleek packaging: it now features a matte-colored cap that can be twisted quickly. The contour is in the form of a stick, which means it can be applied directly to the face, then blended with a stiff contour brush.

And while not directly related to packaging, it is worth pointing out that the Fenty Beauty line is 100% cruelty-free.

Overall this product is the way to go when looking for a contour product for everyday use or even a special occasion.  The buildable part of the Fenty Beauty Match Stix Contour Skinstick is like every makeup product should be: creamy, blendable and easy-to-apply, without leaving one’s face looking cakey or feeling like there is a thick layer of makeup on the face. Having different shades for every skin tone is one of the biggest pluses in makeup right now, and Fenty Beauty’s convenient shopping options and online photos make it simple to find just the right shade. The great packaging is a bonus, as Fenty Beauty has removed metals that have a negative impact on the environment.

Those who want to look like Riri should make sure to grab this product: it will have every user looking beautiful and natural.
