Fenty Beauty has several different highlighters and face products in their collection . Before I talk about Fenty Beauty Match Stix Trio, I briefly want to go over some of the other Fenty highlighters First, there are four cream to powder highlighters that come with two (dual) shades.
The Fenty Freestyle Killawatt Highlighter Duo comes in four colorways. Each of the palettes has two coordinated colors. However, the coordinated shades have different textures. The shade on left side of the palette has a smooth texture. Therefore, this shade is more for day-time wear. On the other hand, the right side is glittery. Hence, it is more for night-time wear.
Next,The Fenty Killowatt Freestyle Highlighter, comes as a single shade that also goes from cream to powder. It comes in two shades. First, Metal Moon is a mega-fine-white-gold. Next, Trophy Wife is a 3D hyper-metallic gold.
Furthermore, Fenty has a pre-bundled set that contains coordinated shades that conceal, contour and highlight. These are cream to powders in a stick form. The name of the pre-bundled set is Fenty Beauty Match Stix Trio(click here for the link $54) .
Fenty Beauty Match Stix Trio Packaging
The packaging is what makes the Fenty Beauty Match Stix Trio unique. First the skin sticks are hexagon-shaped containers. Next, the swivel is on the top of the hexagon. This is where you turn to increase, or decrease the amount of product you need for application.
However, what really makes the Stix Trio stand apart from other contour/conceal/highlight sets is that the hexagon containers are magnetized. Thus, the stix attract to one another, adhere, and then click together. Therefore, the Trio is pack-able and travel-worthy.
Fenty Beauty Match Stix Trio Formula
Specifically, the formula is cream to powder. Therefore, the formula is weightless, easy to blend and buildable. Moreover, the three stix can be layered. Also, when used together, the smooth and powdery stix trio apply seamlessly. Another plus is the formula is long-wearing.

Fenty Beauty Match Stix Trio Application
The Match Stix are easy to apply. First, you can swipe them directly onto the skin. Next, to blend out the shades, you can either use your fingers, a beauty blender,
An important tip for a seamless, buildable coverage is to warm the match Stix shade on the back of your hand. However, you can also use your hairdryer to warm the shade for a few seconds before swiping on.
Rihanna created her Fenty Makeup Brand for All Women to wear. Here are four different women with the swatches from the Fenty Match Stix Trios, from the left is Light, Next is Medium, Third is Tan and Fourth is Deep.
What I like about the Match Stix Trio is the concealer, contour and highlighter shades are already curated for us. Furthermore, I love the cream to powder formula of each of the stix. However, I felt the Contour stick to be a bit dry. And, my skin is uber-dry. I had to have both a moisturizer and a primer on for the concealer to work. Also, I used my hairdryer to heat it up for a few seconds, to make it creamier. Then I had a seamless, easy application.
Also, If the concealer sits in your fine lines (because you’re dry), then I suggest first using your regular concealer, and then putting the Match Stix concealer on top to brighten under your eye. The contour shade created the perfect shadows on my face. Also, it was easy to apply,and easy to blend. I don’t have the portable Fenty brushes, therefore I used my beauty blender and my fingers to apply the products. Last, the highlighter is gorgeous. It might have too much color to use as a highlighter. If it is, then it will be gorgeous used as a highlighter/blush.
