Fenty Beauty Slip Shine Sheer Shiny Lipsticks come in 10 shades, contain 2.8 g / .098 oz, and retail for $22 each. From swatching, these are definitely sheer and feel smooth and not sticky on the lips. They are a little thicker in texture than I imagined they would be but not enough to be uncomfortable. Some shades have larger sparkle/glitter that you can feel on the lips. I will note which ones those are below.
For the lip swatches below, I applied one thin layer only and avoided building up the color as much as possible. This helps to get a more even application with this formula. This isn’t one I would attempt to layer to get more color payoff because for some shade this results in bunching and patchiness.
Quartz Candy has a clear base with pink and gold sparkle. The sparkles are pretty small and I don’t feel them very much unless I’m pressing my lips together and really paying attention. They are somewhat noticeable at a normal viewing distance but not as much as I thought they would be considering how noticeable they are when you look directly at the bullet.
$uga Kiss is a sheer, pale pink with very subtle satin shimmer. The shimmer is not noticeable on the lips. This shade does settle a bit into my lip lines and can bunch up if applied too heavily.
Tang Thang is a sheer but bright orangey red with very fine golden shimmer. The shimmer is barely noticeable at all on the lips. I have to be careful to only apply a thin layer of this and not build it up too much or else it can easily bunch up and look uneven.
Makeout Break is a sheer, pale peach with golden shimmer. I can barely feel the shimmer at all on the lips. The color is very light and clashes a bit with my natural lip color. It isn’t pigmented enough to really keep the natural color of my lips from showing through. As a result, it can look a little bit streaky or patchy on me.
Glazed is a sheer peachy beige with golden sparkles. I can feel the sparkles only the slightest bit if I press my lips together but I don’t find it bothersome. They are somewhat noticeable on the lips form a normal viewing distance. The color went on evenly.
Retro Rose is warm rosy pink with with fine silver micro sparkles. I don’t feel the sparkles and can barely even see them on the lips unless I’m really looking for them. The color applied smoothly and evenly to the lips.
Goji Gang is a sheer mauve with an ultra subtle satin shimmer. This applied evenly to the lips.
Cookies & Cocoa
Cookies & Cocoa is a sheer rosy brown with fine golden shimmer. This applied smoothly and evenly across the lips.
Bubble Rum is a sheer, medium chocolate brown with very fine golden sparkles. I don’t feel the sparkles on my lips. They are not super noticeable against the base color unless you are really looking up close. This shade was not as even on me as I would have liked. I recommend wearing a thin layer for those with fairer skin tones. I think on a deeper skin tone, this would look more even.
Vamps Who Brunch
Vamps Who Brunch is a sheer deep violet with larger blue sparkles. The blue sparkles are very noticeable on the lips, even from a normal viewing distance. I would say they are even more noticeable in person than they are in these photos. I can feel the sparkles in this enough that I’d warn anyone who hates the feeling of glitter in their lip products. This shade could very quickly look bunched up or streaky if I applied too much. Definitely recommend one thin layer and no more for those of you with fairer skin tones. For those with deeper skin tones, I imagine this shade would look more even.
