So if you didn’t know, Rihanna launched her own makeup brand yesterday! And we in Australia were HYPED that we were actually the first ones to try it out!!! As there are so many products, we decided to separate them so today’s post will solely be on the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighters and we will link all the others when we do post them up! So if you do want to know what we thought of her new highlighters, keep reading!
So these are longwear cream-powder hybrid highlighters and they range from a subtle daytime glow to supercharged highlighters perfect for the night! So these come in 6 shades with 2 being single shades with the GORGEOUS gold shade being the one that Rihanna herself wore to the launch party of Fenty Beauty and 4 duo highlighter compacts. The packing in itself was so cute being just a white compact case with the brand on the top however, under different lights it turns a lovely purple shade which we thought was quite clever! The shape of the compact is also quite thin and flat and very light so not only are they easier to store away but also very convenient to carry around!
Now onto the actual products! OH MY GOSH these products are pigmented!!! One good swipe is enough to give you blinding results! We would have to say the most pigmented out of all of them is ‘Trophy Wife’ which is a 3D Hyper Metallic-Gold which probably explains why it is SOOOOOO blinding. The moment the light catches your face, BAM! The duos, are very pigmented as well but as they are more of a sheen or pearlescent finish, the metallic shimmer isn’t as strong but it is definitely still blinding and VERY buildable.
So the duos come with a subtle sheen on the left and then a supercharged shimmer on the right to build up that highlight and really SHINE! What we love about them is the versatility of the palette and the range of shades they come in! As we are quite pale, the darker shades wouldn’t work as well as a highlight but they can be used as a blush or even as eyeshadow! And the lighter shades can be used to highlight literally anywhere depending on your colour scheme of the day! We also really like the fact that there are 2 shades in the duo so they can easily be carried around to play up your makeup from day to night!
