Review for: Trophy Wife, Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby more...
The formula of these highlighters are fantastic. They are pigmented, apply smoothly, and provide that high shine effect that is sure to get you noticed (if you’re extra like me, this is an important quality in a highlighter).

Most of the initial reviews of Trophy Wife had me convinced this wouldn’t work for me. Such a rich golden color seems best suited for deeper skin tones, however I found that with a light hand and some blending, this color looks beautiful on anyone. When I want to make a statement, I reach for Trophy Wife.

When I want something more subtle (but still stunning!) I go for Hu$tla Baby. I ended up purchasing the mini kit so I don’t have the Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby combo, but I’m totally okay with that as I found Mean Money took subtle for my medium skin. This highlighter is shimmery and glowy without being chunky or flaky and is beautiful with any eye or lip combo. The mini size is also great for carrying in my gym bag or purse for touch ups on the go.

Review for: Ginger Binge/ Moscow Mule more...
Of course I love Rihanna so I want to overly love this product, but I don't. I like it... sometimes a lot, sometimes a little. But it just falls short somewhere. In the package, it looks amazing and it looks like it'll give such payoff, but it just goes on like any highlight would. I try to also use it as a blush or an illuminator, but again, it just falls short. I bought it at Sephora (in store) a few months ago, after testing it in the store, but when I got home the same love didn't translate over. I'll continue to use it, though. But I don't know if it's extremely worth it.

Review for: Lightning Dust/Fire Crystal more...
Absolutely beautiful highlighter! It's become one of my favorite highlighters I use. Rihanna definitely put in so much work to ensure her highlighters were blinding and beautiful. I chose this highlighter because I love champagne and warm peachy undertones for my highlighters. I was surprised that the highlighter was the same price as the foundation. I did a swatch of the highlighter to show you guys how it looks on my skin tone. It doesn't look as pigmented in pictures but trust me this highlighter is super pigmented and looks beautiful on the face. On the left is is Lightning Dust and on the right is Fire Crystal. I give this highlighter a big thumbs up!! FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter

Review for: Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby more...
When RiRi came out with the Fenty makeup line I immediately wanted to get my hands on a highlighter because I had seen so many good reviews from YouTubers. I went into Sephora and swatched it before I bought it. I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of glow it gave you. I personally, however, am not a huge fan of highlighters that leave small specks of glitter behind. FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter

Review for: Girl Next Door/Chic Phreak more...
2 SHADE REVIEWS IN 1 POST. METAL MOON & TROPHY WIFE.*This review is for Trophy Wife*This highlighter is definitely not my thing. I hate glitter highlighters. And this is pure glitter. Just good quality pressed powdery glitter in a yellow gold shade. The yellow gold is not for my fair skin, i think it looked awful on me. On my cheeks it looked patchy and obvious (not in a good way) and like a giant streak. Note: I applied with fingers and/or a sponge so with a brush it may be different. It swatched beautifully on my arms, and blended out SO pretty when I swatched it. But I just did not like it on my face. I'm trying to think that if maybe this was a shade more suited for my skin colour i would like it more, but i think it's just not MY thing. This highlighter was also difficult to take off because it's mainly glitter. (Or maybe it was just my makeup remover). That being said, I imagine this would look BEAUTIFUL on girls with medium to dark skin tones. This kind of highlighter is something I haven't really seen before so I love that it's something new. It really was BLINDING. I can see this looking beautiful for a special event or costume or a lit night out. But if the average person wore this during the day they would look crazy. The product definitely feels high quality. The packaging is sleek and gorgeous too. It feels really nice to hold and comes with a nice sized mirror in the compact. 

*This review is for Metal Moon*
At first I really loved this
highlighter! It swatched almost transparent in a way. Like it
appeared white on my finger, but when I put it on my arm there was no
colour, just the shine. So this WOULD have been perfect for really
pale girls that want a not so blinding highlight, or anyone now that
I think of it... But when I put it on my face there was literally
nothing there. I saw no light catching in it. And I love natural
highlight but I felt this completely blended away on my face. Maybe
if I used my usual highlighting brush it could have shown up
different, but fingers and makeup sponges didn't work for me.

Review for: Trophy Wife more...
Can you say BAM! I’m still so blind after using this highlight I can barely type. The Fenty Beauty by Rihanna has always been my favorite in Sephora, but this highlight tops off everything. It is a blinding machine especially on us dark skin girls! I 9/10 recommend! The only downside to the product would be the loose sparkles that can be smudged and transferred on other parts of the face. Which for some that’s not much but for a working women, having glitter all around your face can be a distraction and even inappropriate in some workplaces

Review for: Ginger Binge/ Moscow Mule more...
I purchased this highlighter a little over a month ago and OH. EM. GEE. It is by far my favorite highlighter!! When I use it over the Fenty Beauty foundation, it makes my skin look so glowy!! I do t even look at my other blushes or highlighter now! It’s definitely my go to. I love the two different levels of glitter so I can wear the less shimmery one for work/daytime and the other for nighttime or for fun. I can also use them as eyeshadows when I’m short on space in my makeup bag or time. I would definitely recommend this product and I am an avid Sephora shopper so I can easily find it there.

Review for: Trophy Wife, Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby more...
So I just got the hustle baby and trophy wife highlighters and they are absolutely incredible! They are so pigmented and creamy they just melt and blend into the skin perfectly. I'm literally obsessed. The trophy wife is a bright gold glitter highlighter so it not like an everyday highlight but it is amazing on all skin types. It's really fun looking and glittery on the skin. The hustle baby highlight is a duo one that has two shades in it for you to use. It is more of a glowing shimmer than a glitter highlight. Perfect for everyday and you can build it up for night time. The prices are good for the product you get.

Review for: Trophy Wife more...
So much pigment in this highlighter. Very creamy and lasts very long. I love that this color is yellow because it is unique. It also adds a great pop of color to any makeup look. I like to use this with any neutral eye look because it makes it look full glam without even trying. 10/10 would definitely recommend this highlighter. It is a bit pricier than drugstore brand highlighters that can be equally pigmented, however I have never come across a highlighter that is this shade and works this well.

Review for: Trophy Wife more...
I’m giving this 5 starts because it’s so beautiful and pigmented and really does last all day. I thought that since I am yellow, but pale that this might work super well for me. Unfortunately I was wrong, it just makes me look severely more yellow because the gold is too dark for my skin tone(light) unfortunately. I can imagine that if I was tan it would look amazing, but tanning scares me so this will never work for me :(
If you have a tan to dark skin tone though, give it a shot because it is very pretty.
