When Riri added a red lipstick to her Fenty Beauty line, I was hardly surprised. She’s often been seen wearing a red lip and makes it look amazing and effortless. Like the rest of the products under her Fenty Beauty line, the Stunna Lip Paint Uncensored was created to suit women of all skin tones. And just like the rest of the Fenty Beauty products, it was massively hyped and launched to rave reviews. But does it live up to its claims?
“It’s a perfect universal red”
This is true. As I scroll through Instagram, I have yet to see a person on whom this doesn’t look good. It translates into a beautiful scarlet on pale, medium and deep tones and that itself gives it credibility. Finding the right shade of red of your skin tone just got so much easier.
There are times that I forget that I’m even wearing the Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint Uncensored. Once dry it sets to a soft matte that doesn’t feel heavy or make your lips feel dry or tight.
“It’s low maintenance”
Absolutely. Unless your lips are extremely dry or cracked you can just swipe it on and it will look gorgeous. Once set, it doesn’t flake or feather. It isn’t exactly transfer-proof though – you will see it on your sandwich or your cup and you definitely need to be careful when kissing.
“It’s got 12-hour hold”
Not entirely. I’ve gotten a good six hours wear from the Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint. You could get eight hours depending on what you’re eating – anything greasy will break it down and reduce wear time.
“It’s high impact colour”
It’s definitely pigmented. One of my lips is darker than the other and I usually need to use a liner or concealer to even out the colour. The Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint Uncensored offers true colour payoff without the need to use a concealer or lip liner under.
“Unrivalled precision wand”
The Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint is not the easiest to apply. The modified doe foot applicator takes some getting used to and the lightweight liquid is quite runny, so you must have a steady hand while applying it. I feel the need to line my lips with a pencil first, just so I can colour within the lines, and always have a QTip handy in case of any slips.
While there are no claims to the packaging, I like that it looks and feels more expensive than its S$36 price tag. It looks as pretty on my vanity as it does in my makeup bag. We will have to wait and see how the cover stands up to wear and tear.
Now that you have all the information, you can make an informed decision. In my opinion, if you’re a red lip lover or haven’t found your shade of red yet – this is for you. And the fact that it performs like a high-end lipstick minus the price tag justifies the purchase.
I love a red lip and couldn’t resist. I bought this product.
