Rihanna over here is giving us the best 2020 distraction - Cheeks Out collection. We are talking cream bronzers, blushes and even a brand new face brush. Curious to know more? Then please keep on scrolling!
About the Collection
The new Fenty Beauty collection includes:
Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush (20 USD / 105 AED; Made in Italy)
Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Bronzer (32 USD / 140 AED; Made in Italy)
Face Shaping Brush 125 (34 USD / 160 AED; Made in China)
Claims: light as air, non-greasy, natural-looking, easy to blend, sweat- and water-resistant formulas.
Packaging: there is no denying that Fenty Beauty have the most fun, modern aesthetic (with the new collection being no exception). These easily recognizable hexagonal compacts now have a bold "Cream" written on them, which stands for the brand's new formula. Both blushes and bronzers come with a high-quality mirror, looking/feeling chic. They also have color-matching stickers on the bottom, which allows you to quickly distinguish one shade from the other.
Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Bronzer has 6.23g/0.22 oz. of an actual product in it, which is an exact same amount you get with the brand's powder bronzer (reviewed here). Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush, on the other hand, is much daintier in size sitting at 3.0g/0.10 oz.
Formula, Texture: before writing this review, my audience on Instagram asked their questions about the new launch, so that I could answer them later here. Most of you were curious about the formula and here is everything you need to know.
Both blush and bronzer have an exact same texture to them; imagine touching a surface of a chocolate that just begins to melt - this is exactly how these little guys feel to me. Cream formula is extremely smooth with the pigment sheering out a lot; so when you look at the bright or deep shade in the pan do not panic right away. It won't look this opaque on your skin, unless you decide to build it up.
This texture never gets sticky, oily or greasy; quite the contrary. I find that all shades blend out with ease, leaving my skin with a kiss of color and soft, natural glow.
Vegan and cruelty-free.
Application: now, I personally prefer my cheek products to layer gradually, rather than leaving me with a blob of color that is hard to blend out. If you are familiar with the brand's Match Stix Matte, then it is worth noting that the new cream formula is nowhere near as matte and dry
