FENTY BEAUTY Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in FU$$Y | Review and Swatches

Purchased (Affiliate Links)

FENTY BEAUTY Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in FU$$Y, which is described as a high shine shimmering dusty pink, is a really beautiful lip gloss. I didn't get the original color when it launched– in part because of all of the celebrity hype associated with Rihanna's launch of Fenty Beauty, but I was vaguely curious about the lip gloss, and I did check it out at Sephora a few times. While I liked the original shade, Fenty Glow, I thought that it leaned a touch warmer than I wanted– despite the claims that it was a universally flattering shade that anyone could wear. I did think about Diamond Milk, the white shade, but ultimately didn't get it either (though I may still), but when FU$$Y launched I was definitely more interested because I like pink-leaning lip glosses a lot.

It is a slightly thicker gloss, that clings to the lips and that is long-lasting by lip gloss standards, but it isn't in the least bit sticky or goopy. It has the perfect amount of cushion for comfortable wear, and it conditions and lightly moisturizes the lips thanks to the shea butter. The color is a neutral sheer pink that is punctuated by multi-color shimmer. In the sunlight it is decidedly pink and sheer, but with a luscious shimmering shine. If you don't care for sheer-leaning shiny lip glosses, then this isn't for you, but if you love them, then this is a very nice gloss. It has a very large doe-foot applicator tip, and frankly I was prepared not to like it, but I was pleasantly surprised that I actually liked the size a lot. It does have a lightly fruity flavor and smell, and while it doesn't bother me– it may bother people who don't like scented lip products.
According to Fenty Beauty,

The ultimate gotta-have-it lip gloss with explosive shine that feels as good as it looks—Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb is the essential finishing touch to your Fenty Face.

The stop-everything, give-it-to-me lip gloss that feels as good as it looks. Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer delivers explosive shine, now in three universal shades handpicked by Rihanna herself to be the ultimate finishing touch to any look. Drench lips in Fu$$y, a soft romantic pink; glaze them in Diamond Milk, a shimmering wash of milky pearl that’s like a dewy highlight for your lips; or drip in the original Gloss Bomb shade Fenty Glow, a perfect rose nude—we’re talking the unicorn of nudes that looks good on everyone. One luscious swipe of Gloss Bomb’s XXL wand gives lips more to love, while conditioning shea butter enriches from within. Wearing Gloss Bomb makes lips look instantly fuller, with a non-sticky formula that’s super shiny and has an addictive peach-vanilla scent you just can’t get enough of.

Overall Assessment: I am glad that I finally bought FU$$Y, and while I may eventually get Diamond Milk, they are sheer enough that I don't think one needs to collect all of them.

    1. It really is, and it is so incredibly beautiful on the lips!

  2. This shade is perfection and i like how you said it was clingy. I like those that stay a little bit longer

    1. I think that you would really love the formula nd the color! It's definitely worth having.

  3. Although i am a huge fan of Savage x Fenty intimate apparel, I haven’t tried any of the makeup yet. I read your review with great interest because I love gloss. I like the swatches of both Fussy and Glow, but since I prefer opaque glosses, I will most likely pass on these. Enjoy Fussy!

    1. I think that you would like her makeup as well. You would love this lip gloss formula, but you definitely wouldn't be satisfied with the more sheer coverage.

  4. I like this shade!! It's the kind of pink that I feel best in.

    1. This is definitely your type of formula and color, Marcia! I wear this type of shade the most, too!
