When Fenty Beauty launched last month, it felt like the biggest drop in beauty in, well, ever. I snuck into the Edinburgh Harvey Nichols store bright and early on a Friday morning to have a play with it, and by the time I was catching a cab at 8am, there was already a queue of people waiting to stock up in lines around the store.
Boasting 40 shades of foundation from alabaster-white to the deepest of chocolates, Fenty Beauty is a line which caters for all, and I could resist giving a couple of the products a go! The first of the lineup I tried was the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter.
One of two shades available, (the other is Trophy Wife, the goldest, glitteriest shimmer you’ll ever see) the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighters have been sung as one of the line’s hero products. I’m obsessed with the sleek understated packaging, and the soft, finely milled formula.
Like most of the original Fenty Beauty Line, the Kilowatt Freestyle Highlighter can be used in a multitude of ways. Swirled lightly on the cheekbones it gives skin a subtle glow – the white powder give skin a surprisingly natural sheen, and doesn’t look at all frosty. Instead, there is a pink / gold shift which is incredibly pretty.
Patted in the inner corner of eyes, it adds a beautiful touch of luminosity to eye looks, and I also love it buffed into the brow bone for a little added glamour.
The longevity of the Kilowatt Freestyle Highlighter was a happy surprise – it lasts throughout the day, and on evenings when I’ve gone out, after applying it in the morning, people have commented on it’s pretty glow.
Much like the whole Fenty Beauty line, I’ve been really impressed with the affordability of the products. The highlighters feel like they are really fabulous value for money – the pans hold an impressive 8g of product, so I think I’ll be enjoying a Fenty glow for a while!
