Just a few weeks ago, we were shook by the launch of Fenty Beauty in Sephora and I still can't get over the 40 foundation shade range feat pulled by badgalriri herself! Alas, she definitely did stir up some awareness on diversity cuz' following to her launch, even big players were striving extra hard to market their own foundation shade range that was previously less talked about. Kudos to you, RiRi!
However, despite all the hype, even I myself was disappointed that there were no eyeshadows or lipsticks in her first drop. Well, I guess Fenty Beauty already had some out of the world plans in mind because for their Holiday 2017 Collection, we are graced with an array of interstellar glittery eyeshadows as well as futuristic metallic lippies. Received The Galaxy Collection just two days ago and I HAD TO quickly put together this post cuz' I know you darlings are waiting.
Ditching the overly hyped millennial pink packaging, Fenty's Holiday Galaxy Collection takes on a more futuristic vibe with a dark galactic plating whilst retaining the brand's hexagon identity. Although it is a magnet for fingerprints, I am still obsessed with how beautiful it is and if you are a packaging addict, this will be your jam!
As I do not have enough time to try out every product, this post will just be a brief overview with swatches as a general guide to prep you before heading down in stores or placing your order online. So sit back, grab a cuppa and let's jet off to space shall we?
Galaxy Eyeshadow Palette - SGD$82
You probably seen this all over Instagram - Encased in a oil spill iridescent jewel-like case, Fenty's first eyeshadow palette consists of 14 hyper-reflective shades inspired by the galaxy. Being completely honest with you guys here, this palette DOES have fall outs but the pigmentation is simply too good to be true. Simply swipe it as a top coat over your lids for a wearable touch of glimmer or wet your brush for a more intense sparkle.
Personally, I wish that this case has either a magnetic closure or a push-button opening instead of its current snap closure. Ladies with nails definitely gotta be careful or you may end up like me and nick a little of the eyeshadow if you are not careful (blue shadow as pictured). If you are wondering if this is worth the splurge, I would say go for it! Not only is it limited edition, this stunner is so versatile. It is the perfect accessory for your eyes.
Galaxy Two-Way Eyeshadow Brush - SGD$36
Another brush drop from the Fenty Beauty line. This time round, it features a dual ended eyeshadow brush that is designed specially for its eyeshadow palette sister. I would count this as a collector's item, not a must-have but would be a pretty piece for your vanity.
Eclipse 2-in-1 Glitter Release Eyeliner - SGD$30
You are in for a treat! This transforming 2-in-1 liquid eyeliner can take your look from a cool metallic finish to a glitter surprise when you rub it. It dries into a beautiful metallic matte finish but watch what happens when you rub it. What sorcery is that?!
Available in 3 shades, I have Alien Bae and Nepturnt as seen above. One shifts blue while the other shifts green, I cannot pick a favourite here cuz' clearly both is equally stunning! Would highly recommend picking at least one of these up!
Cosmic Gloss Lip Glitter - SGD$28
Remember the cult favourite Gloss Bomb from the first release of Fenty Beauty? Well, following up with the lip gloss hit, RiRi introduced 4 new celestial shades that would take your sparkle game to astronomical heights. Each shade has its own unique shift and everyone resonates so much with me except for Relationship. Haha, no pun intended although it is low key a life fact for me too. I tend to look too washed out in pinks but it is still a beautiful shade on most skin tone.
Starlit Hyperglitz Lipstick - SGD$28
When cosmic metals collide with super buttery lip creams, you get Fenty Beauty's Starlit Hyper Glitz Lipstick. Super lustrous, creamy and moisturising, it is available in 4 shimmering jewel shades that has a buildable colour payoff. The microfine shimmers creates an extra dimensional look to your lips for a chrome-like sheen that is super hot this season! Brace yourselves and get ready to take flight in these luxurious lippies.
That's all for now folks! Am off to the land of celestial beings together with my Fenty Beauty Galaxy Collection. Will update more on my thoughts after playing with them for a bit. Tried out the eyeshadows yesterday and I actually really do enjoy the ultra-fine glitter on the center of my lids. Hope this post has helped you in your decision making, if I am you, I would GET IT ALL cuz' #beautyjunkiewoes.
Last but not least, thank you so much TouchPR for hooking me up with first dibs! Super lucky and thankful to be able to share this entire collection with y'all! Thank you all for the unwavering support and sending love! Happy weekends.
