The Fenty Beauty Match Stix Contour Skinstick has been on my beauty wishlist for a really long time. I don’t know why I’ve never pulled the trigger and made the purchase before now, but when Fenty had 20% off at Boots, I decided to order a couple of products I’d been lusting after.
I think trying the Fenty Beauty Eaze Drop Blurring Skin Tint, and falling in love with the formula was the push I needed to purchase a couple more base products from Fenty, and I couldn’t wait to see what the formula was like of the Fenty Beauty Match Stix Contour Skinstick.
“With Match Stix Matte Contour Skinsticks, you can contour in a range of shades obsessively fine-tuned and tested to look good on the full spectrum of skin tones. Plus, they come in an easy-to-use stick format that’s perfect for targeted application anywhere you want to contour.
Made to layer, the buildable cream-to-powder formula is weightless and super easy to blend, but also stays put with no creasing or caking.“
The Fenty Beauty Match Stix Contour Skinstick features magnetic packaging, meaning all of the different Match Stix Skinsticks (in matte, shimmer and glow finishes) can be magnetised and clicked together.
I really love the Fenty Beauty brand’s aesthetic, and this cream contour stick has nude coloured packaging, in a hexagonal tube, and the stick features twist-up packaging.
This Fenty Beauty Match Stix Contour Skinstick is described as having a light-as-air matte formula in a range of shades for all skin tones. With a matte, longwearing formula which claims to layer well with other products.
There are seven different shades of the Contour Skinstick, and I chose the lightest shade, which is Amber. Fenty describe Amber as being a cool contour shade for fair skintones, and it really is the perfect contour shade. It’s a cool toned, light brown which blends out seamlessly, as shown below.
I like the stick format, as you literally just ‘draw’ lines on the face, wherever you want to add contour and definition, and you can blend the stick out with your fingers, beauty sponge or makeup brush in a matter of seconds.
It’s particularly great for nose contouring, as you can be so precise with where you apply it, and it does dry down to a matte finish, so you can apply it both under or other your foundation. It’s my favourite contour stick I’ve tried, and I’m kicking myself for not trying it sooner.
