Fenty Pro Filt'r Isn't for Me!!!!!!

All of the buzz was circulating as Fenty Beauty was about to drop exclusively at Sephora. Every television channel and every instagram post in September was about Fenty Beauty. So naturally, I decided to do it for the culture. I went to my local Sephora to get color matched. I wasn’t surprised at all with the results. With the release of 40 different shades with 40 different undertones, the Pro Filt’r did not have my shade(s) and is not for me. I know you will not believe this, but I have tried over 11 different shades to find the perfect match…. Yes, I said I tried 11 shades. So needless to say, Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r was not for me.

Of course, most would bash the brand if it did not work for them,but I am not offended at all. Knowing my heritage and background, I am aware of the variety of undertones I have. Not to mention, how the freckles pay a major role in altering any color match. So there was no love lost for the Fenty brand when the Pro Filt’r foundation did not accommodate my undertones.

BBBBUUUTTT…… Let me tell you. The Fenty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighters and the Match Stick Shimmer Stix did not disappoint at all. Have you tried one of the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighters or Match Stick Shimmer Stix? Well….. If you have not tried one yet, let me introduce you to a few. I will admit that I am totally obsessed with the Shimmer Stix.

With my love for all things purple, I tried Confetti Shimmer Stix. Can we yell Gawd-juss? Yes, it is absolutely gorgeous. I could go on and on about my love affair with Confetti, but I would like for you to be the judge of it.

Ladies, do you agree? It’s gorg right?

Of course, I could not pass on the other shimmer stix with the purple hue. Unicorn is a soft lilac with shimmer. If you do you like extreme highlighters like Confetti then Unicorn is definitely a go to. Unicorn gives a soft lilac hue with specks of iridescent shimmers.

For an everyday shimmer, I tried Rum for a nice natural glow. Rum is the perfect balance of a natural glow and a sun kissed glow.

I have to state that I am not a fan of the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Trophy Wife. Yes, it is beautiful and highly pigmented, but for me it is totally not practical for my everyday life. A great alternative to having a true golden glow, Blonde will definitely hit the mark. Blonde is the golden shimmer stix with the gold reflects. Blonde will definitely be a go-go shimmer stix.

Lastly, I indulged in a Killawatt Freestyle Hightlighter in Metal Moon. The soft golden undertone of the metal is to die for. If you like a nice subtle glow, Metal Moon will be ideal for you.

SSsooooo… The Pro Filt’r did not work for little ol’ me, but I am a total supporter and fan of Fenty Beauty Highlighters. If you follow me on Instagram, stay tuned as more highlighters will be coming soon.

On a serious note, this experience has taught me a few things.

  1. Do not have high expectations when trying something new
  2. Know that every thing will not work for you
  3. Be open to the possibilities that will work for you.

Until next time loves, I hope you enjoyed this beauty sample.
