A reviewer who tried Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick said:

“I do not wear foundation which has given me issues in finding a highlight that looks nice/natural and blends well on just my skin. A wonderful Sephora worker recommended this to mem and just wow! Blends so well even when its just on my skin and gives a very nice natural “dewey” glow. Am very happy with my purchase, from the product to the price point! Will be going to get more colours! :)” – Annasusername

Rihanna created Fenty Beauty “so that women everywhere would be included,” focusing on a wide range of traditionally hard-to-match skin tones, developing formulas that work for all skin types, and pinpointing universal shades. Her vision, above all, is to inspire: “Makeup is there for you to have fun with. It should never feel like pressure. It should never feel like a uniform. Feel free to take chances, and take risks, and dare to do something new or different.”

Here is what one user said about Hidden® Corrective Concealer:

“I have really, REALLY bad dark circles, and always have since I was little. I know everyone claims that, but mine are BAD. Since 3rd grade, people started asking me if I hadn’t slept because my circles were so bad. Whenever I wanted to get out of class in college, I wouldn’t wear concealer and everyone was instantly convinced I was really sick. This gem is a bit pricey, but WAY worth it. Wears beautifully on it’s own (for when I’m lazy) or set with power (my usual ‘full face’). It provides me with full coverage without being cakey or looking obvious or giving me the dreaded reverse raccoon eyes that I used to always have (ughh). This is my holy grail, ride-or-die concealer. Sometimes I forget how awesome it is until I try another concealer and realize how terrible I look.” – jayhave

Another reviewer said:

“There’s a lot to like about this concealer. But it is important to know that this isn’t a super-duper full coverage concealer. I have fair to light skin. I am 39. I have combination skin that tends towards just plain ol’ dry skin in the wintertime.
I was able to find a shade that was a good match for skin. It does go on creamy but doesn’t feel heavy. It didn’t dry out my skin. One application lasted me till lunch time. I think that’s pretty good. I find “all day” concealer products tend to dry me out and go on like paint. I don’t care for that.
I have to sing one star because there isn’t much product here for this price. And it isn’t full coverage. I use a little green concealer under it to cancel out the under-eye darkness I have. With that under this, it offers full coverage.” – HarlemJPN

Here is what people are saying about Vanish Flash Highlighting Stick:

“I chose this as one of my samples a few weeks ago. I just used it the other day and love the creamy formula. I got pink flash and the champaign flash shades. Ive only tried the pink flash and I now have the full size, in my cart. The sample was in a blister pack you peel the top cover off. I dabbed my finger into the creamy highlighter and then I layered it, using my fingers, dabbing it onto and into my cheek bones. The formula did melt into my skin. I layered it over Nars liquid blush and had no issues with the highlighter, disturbing my cheek color. The two blended nicely together on my cheekbone giving me the desired look I was trying to acheive. My skin looked dewy all day long. Not greasy, not oily looking either. Theres a nice shimmer and not glittery at all. I didnt want a blinding cream highlighter but, wanted it to be noticable. When I turned my head to angle my cheeks at the mirror, I had exactly the look I wanted. The highlighter lasted all day, thru the night. I did not need to retouch. A little goes a long way. I love how pink flash, pairs so nicely with Nars new liquid blush. I’ve been on the hunt for two products to use like this for a long time. Finally, I found it. I feel that if you are having issues applying this highlighter straight from the tube, try dabbing the tip of the highlighter on your cheekbones then use the warmth of your finger to dab and melt the product into your skin..” – Sable60

Another user said:

“I was not expecting this amazing beautiful glow this product gave me! Extremely pigmented and is buildable! I rated it 4 stars because after a few application it broke. I removed the lid and the entire product flew out of the stick and sadly landed in my floor! Dont know if mine was just damaged from the get go but was not to happy about that!! Would definitely still recommend and plan on purchasing another shade” – veroniquexo

Here is what one reviewer said about Holographic Stick:

“If you’ve ever wanted to feel ethereal, like a fairy, a mermaid, or something a little otherworldly, the holographic stick in Supernova is definitely for you. I love the buildability and the sheen of this product; you can swipe it on quickly for a subtle lavender pop or layer it on for a dazzling highlight that catches everyone’s eye. I have yellow undertones and I was worried that this would bring them out too much, but the color really complements my skintone and doesn’t oversaturate my undertones. The pigment is pretty long-lasting; as a uni student whose classes are located across slopes, I swipe this on and blend with my fingers on the way to a 10am class and it lasts until I take it off back at the dorms around 10-11pm. The creaminess of the product is really nice as well, but if your pores tend to be sensitive/easily clogged, be wary of wearing this too much. I don’t usually wear cream products, so that could be why, but I do feel that the Holographic Stick can be a little heavy on my skin. However, I haven’t had any problems with breakouts since I started wearing it. It also looks fantastic as an eyeshadow base/alone or on the cupid’s bow. I love how easy it is to apply, its versatility, and the gorgeous iridescent look I get. Seriously, if you love adding a little fantasy to the mundane, check this product out. It’s wonderful!” – JulestheWriter

“This is the Milk highlighter you should buy! Phenomenal on any skin tone. I can rub this over my makeup and it doesn’t pull it off.

I can compare it to the cream stick side of the Pat McGrath 003, but this one’s huge!” – nyaxa

Another reviewer said:

“I had gone to sephora to purchase the benefit what’s app highlighter and a woman who worked there told me that the milk highlighter is very comparable but sat a lower price point. So I decided to try it. I am not a huge fan it does have a nice sheen however I find it hard to get past the scent and it can also seem a bit cakey in texture. I would stick to benefit what;s app its worth it to pay more” – ChannyDoll

Not for me, I was hoping for something more opaque and less sheer. I also didn’t like the way it applied, it’s super rough and kind of hard to apply.” – BigToberlone
