Freaking finally Fenty Beauty arrived in Italy, I’ve been waiting for this moment, so although this line has been out for a while in the rest of the world and you might have already seen thousands of reviews I still want to do my own.
Fun Fact: I was so convinced I was going to get something completely different from what I ended up buying, I didn’t want a new highlighter and the duos didn’t really appeal me but I swear when I saw this one my heart lost a beat and I fell so in love with it, I’m pretty sure I’ve experienced love at first sight!
Anyway, enough rambling, I got the Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo in Lightning Dust/Fire Crystal.
You can get it from sephora for 34$.
The packaging is absolutely stunning and luxurious I totally love it.
It is this white hexagon with a purple iridescence, it comes with a mirror on the inside. It’s not super lightweight but it’s not heavy either and you have all the info in the back, honestly, is so beautiful I’m obsessed.
It comes in a cardboard box with this graffiti effect and baby pink details, I love it too, I usually throw away external packaging but this is so pretty I have to keep it.
PIGMENTATION & FORMULA
It comes with two shades:
- Lightning Dust (Right): it’s is a light, ivory beige with a pearly sheen. It’s the most delicate one, it’s very smooth and it has a medium, buildable pigmentation. It glides on the skin and looks very natural, without enhancing texture.
- Fire Crystal (Left): it’s a light, yellowed ivory with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It’s definitely stronger and glittery but it’s still very smooth, almost creamy and slightly more pigmented than the other shade, this one enhanced m texture a little bit.
They layer really beautifully and they are easy to apply with a brush. They blend seamlessly with the skin.
I compared Lightning Dust with Benefit Dandelion Twinkle, they are identical, that being said, I think this one it’s a better value for money and I like the packaging better.
On me, it lasts around 8 hours without fading.

GRADE: A +
I love this highlighter, it makes you look radiant from the inside, it’s a very natural glow but totally buildable. The formula is amazing and the packaging is absolutely stunning, I love that it’s so versatile, you can adapt the shades and the colours are so beautiful together. I honestly did not think I would like it this much, it literally became a must in my collection and I think that, although it’s not drugstore price, it still has an honest price for the quality.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
