Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Invisimatte Blotting Powder gets awesome reviews on the Sephora website, but it was the only product from my recent Fenty Beauty purchase that I didn’t love…so I’ll keep this short and sweet.
It’s a 0.3-oz. plastic pan of non-refillable $32 pressed translucent powder (comes with a puff) for setting your foundation and/or concealer (you can also use it on bare skin to vanquish shine), and while it’s supposed to be completely undetectable on skin, unfortunately, I can totally see it.
OK, I’ll admit that I’m weird about face powder… I absolutely do not want to see it on my skin. At all. That’s why I hold MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in such high regard, because it’s the most non-powdery powder out there, IMO, regardless of how closely I peer into my mirror at it, and regardless of the lighting situation.
Sadly, I can totally see Invisimatte when I look at myself in bright sunlight, especially when I turn my head. BAM! It drives me absolutely batty. There they are, grains of powder hanging out on the little hairs on the sides of my cheeks, and don’t even pretend like you don’t also have them. 🙂 Don’t we all have a little fur there?
Bottom line, I think this is a great powder for eliminating shine and controlling oil — even better than MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural — but I REALLY wish it didn’t cling so obviously to le fuzz de peach.
Side note: sometimes I feel like the hairiest person to have ever walked the face of the earth. Why I don’t carry a razor around with me 24/7 (clutched in my hairy paws), I don’t know, but I should probably start.
