Rated 4.38 out of 5 stars
RiRi has done ut again y'all. this lipstick has pretty good staying power, I can throw it on without a liner or prep and have it last for a reasonable amount of time (through at least lunch) without bleeding or wiping off
it is smooth and buttery applicatiin with a hint of vanilla smell to it and the applicator matches my cupids bow well.
does not dry my lips out like other matte/semimatee shades (KVD,UD,MAC) even without priming and after care
I bought the shade schoalar sista and it is a beautiful shade that is not quite "natural" but adds a nice spice to a basic day to day work wear routine
I have medium neutral skin tone and it has beautiful deep mauve undertones that compliment my natural lip
the case confused me at first but it's really simple : hold upside down and twist the bottom firmly until the cap comes out, then attach the cap to the lipstick tube after removing the clear top, then insert back into the case and you're good to go!
I like that it is sustainable and the case is easy to find in my purse but the applicator fits comfortably in my hand
When these were first released I was so excited to try, I've bought 3 shades so far, Schola sista, Board member and MVP shade. I was absolutely obsessed with the initial wear and formula when first applied, it stays on nice all day, even after eating and drinking, but I found that at the end of the day when I'm taking off my makeup my lips were immediately feeling tight and dry, even after using the lip scrub stick and lip masks, they still stay pretty dry, this is day 3 since I wore the MVP color and they're lightly flaky and dry. Super upsetting considering how much I love her skin care and other makeup products. I thought it might have been just my skin that was sensitive to the formula but the same thing happened to my sister and a friend.

I love everything about this lipstick. The formula lasts all day and isn't drying. It never even smudges. The color Scholar Sista is the perfect everyday shade. And on top of all those things that make it an ideal lipstick, it's more sustainable with the refillable packaging. I absolutely love it.

I love that Ri is putting her money where her mouth is and promoting environmentalism in her makeup products. Love the reusable tubes. They're way affordable compared to the alternatives. And the lipstick's bomb! Keeping me moisturized in the desert. Got Danger Dancer and Mutha Luva < 3

I didn't realize when I bought this online that it was a refill, but I don't mind. It's a really flattering color and the texture is very creamy and doesn't make my lips feel dry or sticky.

This was my first Fenty Beauty purchase ever, and I am obsessed!!
gg from TX
I'm obsessed with Freak-went-Fly'r. It's a deep sexy red that I always get complimented on when I go out. It doesnt dry out my lips or sit on my lips just to disappear after a drink

I got soul surfer & ballin babe shades and omggggg I'm in love!! I normally don't like Matte lip stick only gotten lip gloss but I'm in love with these colors.
Dee from Indio California
I really wanted to love it however the color doesn't last long at all. It fades very quickly.
Happyplanner from Killeen, TX
I so wanted to love this lipstick but it smears and transfers everywhere! I tried applying two layers blotting in between and it still moves. I even tried lining the lip with a darker shade and blending to help with stabalizing the color - still no bueno. Save your money.
Kiera from New York
This lipstick is so smooth on first application. Glides right across my lips and stayed nice even eating and drinking. Rihanna knows how to make quality products!

I have been searching for a burgundy lipstick that wasn't too deep. This one is perfect, and it has become my new go to color. It is accurately described as a burgundy red. It is both sexy and professional. The name "board room" is suitable, as this is for someone who is confident and doesn't mind taking charge. The lipstick has a creamy feel, with a perfect balance. I will certainly keep this one in constant rotation.
berries from california
i didn't know it was a refill? so i got this ugly little lipstick tube, despite the packaging it's an amazing lipstick it rolls on so smooth and tastes(smells) like sweet berries and it's a beautiful color

I give [two star] my friends also don't like it & too expensive !
Alyssa from KY
I was nervous to spend the money on this lipstick but I thought I would treat myself and buy it. After wearing it for one day this will probably be my go to lipstick from now on. It stayed in place for 12 hours with minimal fading through talking, eating, and singing. I definitely recommend.
Maegan from Deland, Florida
Crowd Surf'r and limited edition berry bullet were purchased and I love it so much. What a cool concept. I love the bullet, just watch a youtube video on how to do it, and it's no problem. The lipstick case is so much fun. I love the color of the lipstick and the case, it may not last too long but I just apply it again because it makes me feel good. I plan on purchasing another one for a present for my mom. Whenever I was sad or upset as a teenager she would say "You want me to get out the lipstick?" I have never really worn lipstick but I do now! Paint a smile.

I love the product. How smooth it goes on. The color is amazing and lasts. I really love the case it's unique style. Fenty has a Unique style of its own. Love It
Rae from California
I love a good gimmick, and this is top tier: you twist the bottom of the case and *pop*, there's your lipstick. That being said, be prepared to buy two separate products. It did seem to get easier to use the more i opened them; Ive purcahsed 4 total so far. Hopefully more colors are released, as there seem to be more that just came out. excited for the brands future if they continue.
Sharon from Kentucky
I love the color it was a little off from the actual photo but I Still like the color.
MakeupL from Wausau Wi
This lipstick tube which comes separate from the lipstick itself is really hard to use. Even getting the tube open is a big problem if you have any weakness in your hands. I will be returning this product when I can.
Jessen from Oxnard
its perfect the formula is perfect its not sticky.
Krystal from Texas
I picked shade Ballin Babe (Grill Mast'r was another fave) Ballin Babe is the perfect nude/any day shade for me. Doesn't feel too dry & I like that the scent isn't too strong. Not completely transfer proof but seems to have some staying power.
Shelley from Oregon
This is a great lipstick. It does need a liner, as it's saturated. But it's long lasting and has just enough red to lift my look from strictly neutral, but not so much that I look like I'm trying too hard. As with all mattes it's a little dry
Krissy from Los angels, ca
I love that this lipstick doesn't feel sticky on me. I absolutely love the pigment. I thought maybe it would be too bright on me, but it's not. I love it.
It doesn't come off too easily, which I appreciate.
I didn't realize that I had to buy the case for it too, so I just use this refillable like a regular lipstick tube even if it doesn't look "aesthetically pleasing." This tube still can be used like a regular lipstick.
Lizxhalo from VA
I ordered 3 of these to try. I have very fair skin and purchased Ballin Babe, Grill Master, and Scholar Sista. Love all three. They feel velvety smooth and the shades are gorgeous. I docked a star because of the case; I won't buy the case.
