According to the folks at Google, Fenty Beauty by Rihanna was #8 on the Top 10 list of the most searched Beauty Brands last year! Fenty Beauty made quite a splash when it debuted in the Fall of 2017. When I first heard about this brand, I admit I was a little bit hesitant about trying it. Fenty Beauty was created by Superstar, Rihanna. Now don't get me wrong, I love Rihanna. She is super talented, absolutely drop dead gorgeous... Click To Tweetand seems to have a beautiful spirit about her. But she is young. She will be 30 years old in February, 2018. So I wondered how the beauty products in Fenty Beauty’s line would perform for those of us in the over 40 & over 50 years young club!
On a whim, I picked up Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Invisimatte Blotting Powder and…. all I can say is.. WOW, was I pleasantly surprised!
According to Rihanna, “Fenty Beauty was created for everyone: For women of all shades, personalities, attitudes, cultures, and races. I wanted everyone to feel included. That’s the real reason I made this line.”
Invisimatte Blotting Powder is described by Fenty Beauty as a universal blotting powder that absorbs shine and diffuses the look of pores for an instant filtered look on the fly. Invisimatte’s translucent powder is completely traceless against all skin tones and won’t cake, clog pores, creep into fine lines, or disturb makeup.
Here’s my take…
I recently said on Instagram that this may be my favorite product of 2018! Now granted that was on January 3rd, but... honestly, I have fallen in love with Invisimatte Blotting Powder and I don't want to be without it. Click To Tweet I plan on purchasing a couple more, one for my purse and one for the car!
Did I mention I don’t want to be without this? 🙂 Here’s why…
Texture & Application
The texture of Invisimatte Blotting Powder is absolutely gorgeous. It’s a soft, finely milled pressed powder and it applies like a dream. It is a white translucent powder with a very subtle lilac/lavender tint to it. I have fair, normal to combination skin. When applied to my skin, it is completely colorless. True to its name, this powder has an immediate blurring and mattifying effect. When applied as a setting powder, it reduces shine, diffuses the appearance of pores and blurs imperfections. It does NOT settle into fine lines which I truly appreciate! There is no chalkiness to this powder at all! The result is a flawless finish with an airbrushed look to the skin.
TIP: As a setting powder, I apply this as the last step in my makeup routine if I am NOT wearing any highlighter. If I’m wearing highlighter, I apply this right before the highlighter with the highlighter being the last step.
Other ways to Apply Invisimatte Blotting Powder include.
- As a blotting powder for touch ups throughout the day.
- Apply before foundation to mattify if you have oily skin or to even out skin tone before foundation
- As a refresher, you can apply this anytime over your makeup to freshen. I doesn’t change the color of your makeup at all!
The pressed powder comes in a mirrored compact. It comes with a sponge that is fine for on the go touch ups. There is a portable touch up brush from Fenty Beauty (sold separately) that is meant for use with Invisimatte Blotting Powder. Custom-made to pair with Invisimatte Blotting Powder, the Portable Touch Up Brush has a retractable design and magnetic panel, so it snaps right in to the bottom of the powder compact, always there when you need it. I did not purchase this brush, although it is on my wish list! It would be nice to have for the purse. I’ve been using my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush to apply the powder and it works fine!
Invisimatte Blotting Powder $32 USD
Portable Touch Up Brush $24 USD
Rihanna is always red carpet ready and looks flawless. And I'm pretty sure Invisimatte Blotting Powder is her secret weapon! Now it's on my list of Favorites for 2018! Click To Tweet I absolutely love this powder and I will definitely be purchasing it again.
