Fenty Beauty by Rihanna | *NEW SHADES* Stunna Lip Paint: Review and Swatches
Just last week, Fenty Beauty by Rihanna has released four new shades of the Stunna Lip Paint ($30 CAD for 4 ml each). Described as "a weightless, 12-hour liquid lipstick with a soft matte finish", the liquid lip color once available only as a universal red now comes in a peachy nude, a rosy mauve, a chocolate brown, and a carbon black. I've got review and swatches of all four shades to share with you today. To read on, click......

Packaging:
The Stunna Lip Paint comes in a luxurious and sleek glass bottle paired with a unique doe-foot applicator. Judging from the packaging alone, the product looks more like a nail polish than a liquid lipstick. Come to think of it, I don't think I've seen any lipgloss or liquid lipstick housed in a glass container, which makes the Stunna Lip Paints feel extra special. The shades "Unbutton", "Uncuffed", and "Unveil" are paired with a reflective rose gold cap while "Uninvited" comes with a matte black cap. As you can see in the image above, the doe-foot applicator has a pretty interesting design with the tip is enlarged to ensure a smooth application. I've read some reviews stating that the applicator holds too much product but I actually like how it provides enough color for both the upper and lower lip so I don't have to re-dip the wand.

Formulation:
I've not tried the original "Uncensored" shade so I can't make a comparison with the four new shades I have here. With a pretty thin and runny liquid formulation, the Stunna Lip Paints are liquid lipsticks with a true matte finish. The colors apply very smoothly and the pigmentation is impressive. The finish dries within a minute or so but I was surprised by the fact that it's not completely transfer-proof. Even after 15 minutes of dry time, the Stunna Lip Paint will transfer slightly and the finish is just a tad tacky when I press my upper and lower lips together.

I experienced some flaking and patching along the inner rims of my lips, which rarely happens with other liquid lipsticks I've tried in the past. Overall, despite its gorgeous packaging and the smooth and easy-to-apply formulation, the Stunna Lip Paints are kind of disappointing. With so many liquid lipsticks available on the market that have a completely transfer-proof finish, there's just no excuse for the Stunna Lip Paint's short wear time. However, if you do like to collect makeup products for their packaging, then the Stunna Lip Paints are worth looking into. See below for a breakdown of the four new shades.

Unbutton: This is a classic peach beige nude. The formulation is slightly sheer but buildable. The finish is a bit "wrinkly" as the color cracked along all the fine lines of the lips.
Uncuffed: A cool-tone rose nude, Uncuffed is smooth and pigmented. The color is more muted and grayish than I expected; it's not quite the flattering rose nude I was hoping for.
Unveil: Probably the most pigmented out of the four, Unveil is a rich chocolate brown.
Uninvited: This is a simple matte black. The formulation is just a touch sheer so a second coat is needed to ensure a completely opaque finish.
