Fenty Beauty Icon Lipstick Review — Here’s What to Expect From this $32 Refillable Fenty Beauty Lipstick

Being the first of its kind for the brand, the drop of Fenty Beauty’s Icon Lipstick made quite the buzz in February 2022. Coming in a refillable case, boasting a sparkling metallic gold or a sleek matte black, was designed to make a statement. This lipstick is larger than most regular lipstick tubes, and as added bonus, with the option to get it engraved. This certainly is as luxe as it gets. 

Fenty Beauty advertises that the Icon has a “plush texture” and is “as light as air”, which delivers a creamy, semi-matte finish. Enriched with hyaluronic acid and vitamin C and E, this lippie holy grail is available in 10 beautiful shades — a mix of reds and neutrals — and features a unique cupid’s bow shape inspired by Rihanna’s lips.

What’s the Inspiration Behind This Refillable Fenty Beauty Lipstick?

Being amongst the pioneers of the beauty industry, Fenty Beauty’s Icon Lipstick doesn’t just boast a gleaming metallic nude case, making it incredibly chic in itself, but it’s also refillable. This means you can now switch lip colors of any shade from the collection once you run out. On top of that, the RiRi-inspires Cupid bow bullet also makes it easy to achieve a precise application.

The Shades

The shade range includes seven neutrals and three reds. The lighter ones consist of Motha Luva ( a light pink nude), Pose Queen (a neutral pink nude), Scholar Sista (a rose nude), and Ballin’ Babe (a mauve nude). Those who prefer darker hues are in for a treat too, featuring Major Magnate (a cool taupe nude), CEO (a chocolate nude), and Flauntie Auntie (a mahogany nude). As for the reds, there’s Board Memb’r (a burgundy red), Grill Mast’r (a maple red), and The MVP (a blue red).

The Application

The texture of this Fenty Beauty lipstick makes it easy to glide across the lips. Suppose you’re only targeting for a subtle wash of colour, one single swipe suffices; and if you’re wishing for a more impactful effect, feel free to layer it a few times until you achieve that desired look. Thanks to its combination of hydrating ingredients, your lips will stay plump throughout the day and you don’t even need your lip balm anymore.

Plus point, if you don’t have a cupid bow naturally, fret not, the bullet will help you fake it. 

The Results

Longevity-wise, sadly, this Fenty Beauty Lipstick isn’t the most budge-proof but they do impart a flattering tint as they fade. By the end of the day, your lips will be naturally tinted.

Our Final Thoughts

If you’re thinking about jumping on the Fenty bandwagon, this new Fenty Beauty Lipstick really does live up to the hype. We would highly recommend this to people who are looking for a hydrating lipstick or those who don’t like re-applying their lipstick as they go about their day. 

Because of how lightweight and comfortable this lipstick feels, we think it makes a great investment for those who don’t wear tons of makeup on a regular basis.
