Fenty Beauty Afternoon Snack/Mo’ Hunny Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo Review & Swatches

 

Afternoon Snack/Mo’ Hunny

Fenty Beauty Afternoon Snack/Mo’ Hunny Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo ($34.00 for 0.24 oz.) contains highlighters in soft, peach-brown and mid-tone copper. Both shades performed well with good pigmentation, buildable shine/shimmer, long-wear, and easy application. The two coordinated well together for a more tone-on-tone look where Mo’ Hunny really amplified the shine and sparkle factor when layered over Afternoon Snack.

Afternoon Snack

Afternoon Snack is a soft, peachy brown with warm undertones and a smooth, metallic sheen. It had opaque pigmentation paired with a lightly creamy, dense but not too thick texture that was easy to pick up, apply, and blend out on my skin. The finish could be amplified by using it with a dampened brush or applying more on top of the initial layer. It didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. This shade stayed on well for nine hours on me before fading a bit.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.28 oz. – $128.57 Per Ounce

The formula is described ranging from “subtle dayglow to insanely supercharged” with a “cream-powder hybrid” formula that feels “weightless” and is long-wearing. They can also be used on the eyes, body, lips, and so forth, per the brand. They feel like a traditional powder, but they have a smooth, moderately dense texture that doesn’t kick up a lot of excess product in the pan but also does not feel stiff or difficult to pickup with the brush. The finishes varied from shade to shade; where Metal Moon was the most subtle and had a satin-to-pearl finish, Trophy Wife was the most over-the-top with chunky, obvious glitter and less base color compared to the other shades.

The duos featured a light-to-moderate highlighter on the left and then a more sparkly, metallic highlighter on the right with the exception of Ginger Binge/Moscow Mule, where the left shade (Ginger Binge) was more intense (possibly owing to the richer color and payoff). In general, I found the left, more subtle side of each duo to be sheer to semi-sheer, somewhat buildable, whereas the right, more metallic side was substantially more pigmented. All of the more intense highlighters (Trophy Wife and the right side of the duos) did accentuate the look of my skin’s natural texture to some degree.

For use on the eye, they worked better with a slightly dampened brush, as it gave the powder a bit more binding powder for better adherence to the lid, but the ones I tried on the lid were blendable and easy to apply with no real concerns from the application itself other than the potential for fallout over time.

Mo’ Hunny

Mo’ Hunny is a light-medium copper with warm undertones and flecks of gold sparkle. The color payoff was opaque in a single layer, though a lighter hand could achieve more buildable pigmentation if preferred. It had slightly larger shimmer/sparkle throughout, so it applied best with a denser brush and buffed onto the skin for a smooth, high-shine finish with a touch of glitz. The texture was lightly creamy, dense without being stiff, and easy to work with as the product adhered well and blended out nicely on my cheeks. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before it started to have more noticeable sparkle/shimmer migration.
