Rihanna wearing her own Fenty Beauty make-up range
For the first time ever, Sephora just launched a make-up collection at the exact same time all across the world. So while we were going ham and testing all the products in Sydney’s Sephora store, Rihanna was celebrating the launch of her long-anticipated Fenty Beauty collection in New York. What a time to be alive.
Firstly, she’s not mucking around here. There are 40 shades of foundation to choose from (all creamy and delicious), unveiling a collection that embodies the diversity and inclusiveness of women. We’re proud to say, you’re guaranteed to find your match. The whole range is your go-to complexion game-changer, which is no surprise because we’ve all seen Rihanna’s skin.
Radiance and youthful looking skin with a bit of shimmer to complete the look is the end-game here. You’ll probably want to get your hands on the freestyle highlighter in Killawatt, it’s a highly pigmented compact gold shimmer for cheekbones (only available in Sephora stores). She’s even got a blotting paper, because RiRi is totally relatable and also gets that inconvenient shine (inconvenience be gone). We’re most excited about the universal lip gloss, called Gloss Bomb. It’s a lip luminizer in the lip shade everyone wishes they had naturally but with a sprinkle of shimmer. It’s also got a non-sticky feel on the lips upon application, in fact the whole range is lightweight and creamy as. And if you’re into a contour, Rihanna has you covered with her Match Stix Trio set, three easy sticks to conceal, contour and highlight. They are also magnetic, so they’re perfect for on-the-go. You’re welcome.
