It’s finally here! If you’re a beauty fiend, you may need to add 40 new colors to your collection of foundations accumulated from Sephora. If you’re devoted to Rihanna’s music, fashion, and her many other ventures, then you already know about Fenty Beauty.
You’re probably wondering, what’s the big deal? It’s just another celebrity beauty release, right? No.
This ingenious line by Rihanna is everything any girl, from any background, should raid. Especially newbies with no beauty experience! The products are a little pricey, ranging from $25 to $50. But, as we move unto the next gen of miscegenation, Fenty Beauty shows other beauty brands how to step into the future (or the now, for that matter). Rihanna shows she understands the beauty of more than one skin tone, and her lit highlighters make everyone’s skin shine bright.
With so many beauty labels released, and many of them fails, Rihanna shook us with 40 jaw-dropping foundations, all luxuriously packaged, suited for basically every skin tone on earth. It’s totally buildable, blendable and breathable. I honestly don’t think any foundation on the market currently leaves the skin with such a velvety matte-finish that looks so natural. Plus, the reviews of the products are open-minded, so honesty proves the products are definitely worth a try. The foundation formulas imply a technologically advanced skincare concept.
“Fenty Beauty was created for everyone: for women of all shades, personalities, attitudes, cultures, and races. I wanted everyone to feel included. That’s the real reason I made the line.” xx Rihanna.
Honestly, the collection’s success wasn’t just based on the products solely, but in its recognition of people of every color, gender neutrality, and so much more. The collection is a cultural acceptance of beauty. Robyn Rihanna Fenty (Fenty is Rihanna’s last name!) understands beauty is a form of self-expression, created exclusively for each individual.
Growing up in Barbados, Rihanna was hypnotized by her mother’s lipstick. This was, perhaps, the beginning of Rihanna’s love for makeup and her understanding of its allure. After years of research, Fenty was born to fit universally for all skin tones and textures.
“Makeup is there for you to have fun with,” she says. “It should never feel like pressure. It should never feel like a uniform. Feel free to take chances, and take risks, and dare to do something new or different.”
Rihanna also adds that makeup should be playful and skin should look like skin.
The Fenty line also has some surprises in store. My favorite is the highlighters in the collection. With so many beauty fads, anticipate highlighting to stay. Rihanna slayed the collection with the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Trophy Wife, retailing at $34. This was her collection spotlight, with massively pigmented gold flecks that truly suggest the spirit of a trophy wife.

Her line also has magnetic match stix, all hexagonal shaped, for easy storage in your makeup kit. The innovative brushes have new bristle shapes that hug the contours of the face effortlessly for easy blending. Another great quality about the collection is the tractability of every product. Everything in the collection is user-friendly and multi-functional, which has everyone from beauty gurus to novices swooning.
And for all you Rihanna fans, pay attention to the names of each product. Rihanna’s product titles describe her personality and pastimes, with ‘Trophy Wife’ as a gold highlight; ‘RIDIIIC,’ a golden papaya blusher; and, ‘MEAN MONEY/HU$TLA BABY,’ as a highlight duo. Certainly entertaining!
Fenty Beauty is this year’s makeup success, with so many features that value individuality and unity, showing no partiality. This collection isn’t just about outward beauty with makeup. We’re feeling it for its harmony with personal equality. Rihanna’s integrity in cultural pride and effort in peaceful livelihood are well-reflected by the Fenty Beauty line.
