Fenty Beauty Killawatt Highlight Duo Ginger Binge/Moscow Mule 2x3.5g/2x0.12 Oz
contains two rose golds–one lighter, one deeper–and both are quite shimmery with high-shine finishes. This duo will be most suitable for someone who likes richer, more pigmented highlighters with metallic to glittery finishes and isn’t concerned when highlighters accentuate the skin’s natural texture. I felt the quality of the left side of the duo was better than the other duos.
Ginger Binge is a rich, medium-dark rosy copper with warmer undertones and a metallic sheen. Of all the duos, this shade was the most shimmery on the left side–it was by no means subtle. It was very pigmented with a smooth, almost cream-like texture that was denser and less thin compared to the other duos, too, and I didn’t feel like this one would develop a stiffer/firmer texture over time. I did not notice it emphasizing my skin’s natural texture when I tested it out, but if you have more texture, it would seem like a possibility based on the metallicness of the finish. It wore well for eight hours on me before breaking down a bit.
Moscow Mule is a dark, rosy copper with warmer undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had intense, opaque color payoff in a single layer, but the texture was incredibly soft and smooth, which made it easy to blend out the edges or sheer out the coverage if desired. The downside was that it definitely made my skin look more textured than most highlighters, though I personally liked the way it reflected light and color enough that it’d be a shade I’d continue to wear, but I know that that can be a deal-breaker for some (and it is factored into the rating). I also don’t think it keeps with the brand’s description of “superfine” shimmer either–quite the contrary, as it was quite over-the-top, sparkly, and so forth. This shade lasted for eight hours but turned a bit patchy after that.
