FENTY BEAUTY BY RIHANNA Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter

Fenty Beauty has absolutely taken over the beauty world these past weeks and with good reason. Not only does the ultra-celeb Rihanna have her name attached to it, but it sends a message of inclusivity in a beauty world that lacks it. Her foundation range has 40 shades with goals to double that. If you'd like to see a review and wear test on my oily skin of the Fenty Beauty Foundation check out my Fenty Beauty Foundation Wear Test on YouTube. You can also see the Fenty Beauty Killawatt Highlighter in action, which is what I'm chatting about today. 
Fenty Beauty Killawatt Highlighter Review
The Fenty Killawatt Highlighters come in 6 shades, 2 singles and 4 duos. These retail for $34USD/$42CAD at Sephora. I have the shade Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby which is described as a "soft champagne sheen / supercharged peachy champagne shimmer". The duos come with two complimentary shades, one that is more of a sheen and the other has a stronger shimmer.

I really love that they did the split pan. I know everyone always seems to want to "glow to the Gods" and scream "YAHZ" every time they apply a highlight but it's nice to have something more subtle. The more sheen side of this highlight still gives a beautiful glow, would be great if you have more textured skin too. You'll see in the swatches it almost looks dull but on the skin it's beautiful!

I like to layer them, to add dimension on my skin. Adding Mean Money all over the top of the cheek, down the bridge of the nose, cupids bow and then go in with Hu$stla Baby in a more targeted way to add an intense glow. Some of the shades and swatches I've seen look like they have a lot of glitter but I didn't see anything in this while wearing it.

Fenty Highlighter Dupes/Fenty Highlighter Shade Comparisons
This photo makes all of these highlighters look like dead on Fenty Highlighter dupes. In my opinion they are not all as close as it seems. If you are not a complete makeup junkie then okay fine they are super similar. Estee Lauder Heat Wave is more a pure gold, Champagne Pop has that champagne beige, MAC Beaming Blush is the closest as it has the gold with pink undertones.
