Queen RiRi slays the game again with her Fenty Beauty makeup line and according to every single beauty guru on this planet who has purchased a piece of this gold has been raving about it since the day it dropped.
From blotting paper that might double as rolling paper (what?) and a golden highlighter that is literally blinding, Rihanna has come 👏 through 👏 with this beauty line.
As much as most of us would agree that her makeup is actually reasonably priced, makeup can still add up. You know that moment all too well when you walk into Sephora with an empty basket and 20 minutes later your basket is absolutely overflowing. So we're here to narrow down some of the best makeup products from the Fenty line and help you choose the crème de la crème.
The foundation is worth all the hype. As you already know, there are 40 shades, ranging from fair to deep. But Ri never compensates quality for quantity. Her foundations are buildable, medium-coverage, literally your-skin-but-better and leave a gorgeous, smooth matte finish on the skin. The shade does oxidize and darken a touch after it has settled onto the skin, so make sure to allow the foundation to set when you're testing it out. We recommend this foundation for normal to oily skin types.
If you haven't already heard all the hype about RiRi's highlighters, you definitely live under a rock. Rihanna wore this highlighter to her debut Fenty event in New York and the beauty community has been shook ever since. This highlighter is so pigmented and so golden, that with just a single dip of the brush and a soft swipe on the skin, your cheeks will literally become blinding.
Tbh, all of Fenty's highlighters are the bomb, but Confetti really takes the cake (ha, see what I did there). This shimmery, opalescent highlighter has a glowing, iridescent pink and purple tone that is so flattering on the high points of the face. It compliments light and dark skin tones and will definitely make you shine bright like a diamond.
On the cover of Elle, Rihanna absolutely rocked her highlighting stick in the shade Unicorn. The lavender colour may look intense at first, but once applied to the cheekbones it adds the most beautiful sheen and glow to the skin. It is a bit similar to Confetti, but less glittery and has a more velvety finish.
Full Bodied Foundation Brush // FENTY
If you're looking for a heavy duty foundation brush that's going to give you lots of coverage, this Full Bodied Foundation Brush is for you. The synthetic bristles on this bad boy are soft and dense, and leave no streaks on the skin - perfect for applying a healthy layer of Fenty Foundation.
Precision Makeup Sponge // FENTY
Now if you're a loyal Beauty Blender user, it might be time to switch it up because Fenty's Precision Sponge is changing the game. Ri's three-sided makeup sponge is super soft and latex free. The unique shape fits right under the eyes, perfect for under-eye coverage and works well with all foundation formulas.
Invisimatte Blotting Paper // FENTY
The Invisimatte Blotting Paper is probably one of the most overlooked items of the Fenty line. It's great for oil control and maintaining that matte glow on your face all day long. But the best part is that it is rather reminiscent of rolling papers and low key hints at her love for the ganja. Though we wouldn't actually recommend that you use it as rolling paper, it definitely does the job when it comes to oil control.
