Everything we know about Fenty Beauty

Friday, 8 September 2017

Highlighters, brushes and correctors, oh my! Rihanna’s much-anticipated Fenty Beauty collection has arrived and we’re freaking out!

The range is available in 1600 stores, in 17 countries – unfortunately South African beauties don’t have a store to head to just yet, but luckily we have her website and Instagram. So we can save up and mentally buy everything!

The trendsetter is championing “Beauty for all”, and with 91 variations of products to choose from, there’s literally something for beauties of every leaning.

Rihanna proved innovation was as important as inclusivity when creating her new line of beauty products and stated, “I don’t want women to [say], ‘That’s cute, but it only looks good on her”, via Vogue.

The inclusive range consists of 40 foundation shades and 30 magnetic compacts (in matte and shimmer finishes) to highlight, contour and conceal– as well as six cream-powder highlighters, brushes, blotting papers and one universal lipgloss.

We can’t wait to try the gloss because it’s said to flatter every skin tone – much like The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, but with gloss. Dubbed ‘Gloss Bomb’, it’s a game-changing rosy nude with hints of peach specs.

The products range between $20 and $39 per product (roughly R260 – R500), a small price to pay to live like Badgalriri?

The icon was 100% involved in the creation of the collection and helped ensure women of all ages, religions and skin tones could look Rihanna-ready. Here’s to achieving Rih’s perfect red carpet glow-up. Head to Fenty Beauty for more.

    I’ve been watching a few fenty beauty reviews on YouTube and I must say I just can’t wait to get my hands on the trophy wife, I’m definitely all about that glow! The foundation also seemed good, nice and medium coverage, natural look type of vibes.

    I have subscribed to a few You tube channels. I always follow the dark skin make-up artist.I was sad to see that the that none of the contour sticks suits the dark skin girls. As for the highlighter called trophy wife that is my ultimate favourite. I would however use it as a brow lighter. I can’t wait to use it.

    Really can’t wait for this to reach South Africa. Was very impressed with the team behind Fenty. It had make-up for every share and color. Was not surprised when they sold out within a week.

    I love the fact that she considered all skin tones and races and learned from the mistakes other celebrities made when venturing into their own makeup line. I’m obsessed with Riri and knew this line would be amazing but it really exceeded my expectations.

      We’re certainly very impressed and super stoked to try the refreshingly inclusive collection :) Can’t wait to achieve that Riri glow!
