Is Rihanna's Stunna Lip Kiss Proof? FENTY BEAUTY BY Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color Review

Well, look who's back? Me! So let's talk--how have you been? I've been WONDERFUL. And I am SO ready for this year to end. So ready.

But first--the holidays! I can't go through the holidays (or really a week) without a red lip. Red lipsticks are my shopping weakness, y'all, so it was a given I had to try out Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Stunna Lip Paint, available at Sephora. Singer Rihanna's Fenty Beauty line has been flying off the shelves at Sephora. Have you tried it?

So yeah, I love a red, but why did I get this one?

Rihanna wanted a universal red, something that looked great on ALL skin tones.

She wanted something feels light on the lips, not an easy task for a matte lipstick, as most are drying.

She also wanted a long-wearing lipstick, and thus (side note: who uses "thus"? Me!) this fluid lip to matte was born.

$24, Sephora (YES I think that's a ridiculous price)



And what really piqued my interest? Rihanna said, "I wanted a lipstick that wouldn't budge—even as you eat, even as you make out,” I had to try it.

More on that in a minute! Let's get to the swatch:

So the consistency is liquid to matte. It doesn't take too long to dry. I did have some initial transfer, but not anything too drastic.

It's easy to wear and feels very light on the lips and not drying. I would say it's a true red, more like a traditional red. It is VERY VIVID on. You will definitely be noticed wearing this.

The application, to me, is not that easy. The applicator isn't too hard to work with, but the liquid consistency might make it difficult for the occasion red lip wearer.

Speaking of wearing, here it is on! I would highly recommend using a lip liner, which I did not use because I wanted you to see what it looks like without it.

BUT is it kiss-proof?

Um no. 

Not even close.

Eating with it I had transfer too, but it really seemed to stay on and stain the lips. But it didn't last 12 hours as I'd heard.

Overall, it's a pretty red, I love the formula, and great for those who don't love a dry matte lip. Reviews online boast of it's kiss/eating/longlasting-ness of it, but I didn't encounter that. I'm glad I tried it though, but I still prefer my orange-reds.

Would you try this?
Have you tried anything from Rihanna's line?

  2. So glad you are back! And feeling wonderful! That's the best, really, great news! Well, I am eager to try Fenty Beauty and your review made me want to, even more. It may transfer, it doesn't seem to last 12 hours, but nevertheless I liked the color so much and you look amazing! I always wear lipsticks with a brush, so application is not a problem at all, for me. Loved the review!

  3. Thanks for sharing this review. I would have to skip this because of the difficult application. No time for that. Lol! You look amazing in this color.


  4. Glad you're good Elle. The colour looks great on you. Sucks that it transfers though. Still pretty

  5. I love the look of this red, it looks truly stunning as the name suggests. I've seen so many people rocking it!

  6. That color is incredible on you Elle!! Even the lipsticks that are supposed to last all day, don't always---but at least they don't usually smear like this....ooops!!

  7. The color looks great, but good to know it's not kiss-proof! haha ;)

  8. It is a stunning red and I am tempted to purchase this because I'm a huge fan but wow, the transfer is ridiculous.

  9. You did a great job applying it, but I would never be able to do as good of a job as you, and I'd end up looking ridiculous! Thanks for testing it out and your review; it looks so fabulous on you. Welcome back too. :)

  10. Whoa, $24?! I do love the color--I like a traditional red, but I need one that's more "user friendly" :) And cheaper. Ha! Glad you're back!

  11. Ahhh I love the gif you made!! You’re too cute Elle!! That is definitely a beautiful red and it looks great on you!

  12. That lip color is gorgeous on you...but your kiss test is cracking me up and leaves a little to be desired on transfer, huh?

  13. Wow, you rock the red so well! Pairs well with your gorgeous eyes! I wish I could sport red but it just isn't the best color choice for my skin tone :(

    Thanks for sharing!


  14. That red does look great on you..! I've been trying to venture into reds - eek! ;) Haha loved the video on this post!!

  15. This is such a nice color! I did hear that it is a bit smudgy and you've definitely proved that it is not kiss proof at all... think I'll try to wait for VIB discounts before picking this one up.

  16. I'm ready for this year to end, too, ha ha. That is a pretty red, but it'd definitely not kiss proof.

  17. Thanks for your honest thoughts; pretty color for sure though!


  18. I do love the colour but such a shame about transfer. Damn. Thanks for your honesty. I've only seen people rave about this and I felt like it was too good to be true hahaha!


  19. Beautiful red lipstick! Perfect shade for the holidays!

  20. It's a lovely color and at least is pigmented nicely. It's a pity it wears down with eating or kissing though!

  21. I've tried this for new year's eve party and I've found that it's kiss proof : no traces on my toddler jaws nor on my boyfriend lips. Might this depends on the lips skin type ?! No traces on the glasses neither...
    What didn't work for me was huge amount of product on the wand : I have a really thin upper lip and I had to put it on twice. Next time I'll do my lips first !
