Good morning babes! Over the weekend, Rihanna launched her highly anticipated Fenty Beauty Collection that we’ve all been waiting for!! I’ve always idolized Ri Ri..from her amazing music career, style and designing her own fashion line, Fenty x Puma. She’s always been such a natural beauty and her make-up is never overdone.. it’s always the perfect combination between glam and natural. I was always hoping she would launch her own beauty line and I knew when she did, it would be something special. Over the years, celebrity-sponsored beauty brands have been all the buzz but Rihanna really wanted to create the “new generation of beauty”, a collection that would recognize diversity in the beauty industry, an issue that is very much prevalent today. So not only does her collection accomodate a wide range of skin tones, but it’s also showing the direction beauty should be headed in! Rihanna wanted to create a line that catered to extreme ends of the shade spectrum, so whether you’re very pale, very dark, or in-between, there’s a shade for you in this collection.
Fenty Beauty is now available at Sephora, both in-store and online in 17 countries. Today I’ve rounded up my top 5 products from the collection with shoplinks so you can get your hands on some of these amazing products before they sell out!!
1 | Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter
Bring on that glow Ri Ri!! Out of all the products in the collection, the Kilowatt Freestyle Highlighters stood out to me the most. As you guys know, I’m all about using multi-purpose products for my face. I love that this highlighter can be used for both the face and eyes and the paired duo option is perfect for that! I usually use my bronzer and blush as my eye shadow, but when I want a more shimmery look I love the idea of using my highlighter as an eyeshadow. My favorite shade is the Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby (who else is loving these names?!) because the soft champagne tone is perfect for an all-over face highlight and the peachy champagne tone is perfect for an eyeshadow. Rihanna always has such a beautiful and natural glow to her skin, so for this highlighter she really focused on creating that velvety, cream-to-powder texture that just melts into your skin and gives you that island glow ;)
2 | Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer
At first I thought a universal shade of lip gloss would be hard to master, but Fenty Beauty pretty much nailed it with this one. It’s not called ‘Gloss Bomb’ for nothing! This shade really is a perfect shimmery rose nude, one that looks good on everyone. And as if that isn’t enough, it has a peach-vanilla scent that you will die for!! Rihanna’s goal with this lip gloss was creating a lip product that will make you want to put it on over and over again.
3 | Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation
There’s thousands of foundations on the market, but unfortunately not every line offers a range of colors and tones that works on every skin type. If you’re very pale or very dark, there are few brands that you can turn to. What’s so special about Fenty Beauty’s longwear foundation is that they created this foundation with real women in mind, testing it on a wide range of skin tones and making sure every woman can find a shade that they are comfortable and confident in. I’m talking 40 shades here, pretty damn universal right?! And best of all, this formula also features a unique technology that makes it resistant to humidity and sweat, so you can basically even wear it to the gym..why not right?!
4 | Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick
What I love most about Fenty Beauty is the focus on multi-purpose products that are both convenient and functional. For me it’s always been the less products, the better. It’s all about finding those few products that can be used on multiple points of your face. These Match Stix Shimmer Skinsticks come in 10 different shades and can be used to highlight, blush, and enhance! The formula is super lightweight and most importantly blendable, so if you want your eyes to be more pigmented you can layer it on and keep your cheek highlight on the more sublte side.
5 | Portable Highlighter Brush 140
I’m all about that glow, but taking it on-the-go isn’t always easy. As soon as I saw Fenty Beauty release this Retractable Highlighter Brush, I knew it was going to change the game!! Rihanna wanted to include a few key brushes within her collection that combined convenience and high-functionality all in one. I love the idea of this brush because it’s small enough to stick in your purse and has a lid so you don’t have to worry about make-up stains or bacteria getting in your bristles. The brush is also slightly slanted to perfectly hit the angles of your face. And best of all, the brush case is magnetic so you can easily attach your Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick rather than carrying around your powder highlighter separately. So genius.
