Unless you live at the bottom of the ocean… you already know that Rihanna has FINALLY debuted her makeup line Fenty Beauty. I’ve been waiting for this for almost two years. There was murmurs throughout the beauty sphere that she got a deal with LVMH. I couldn’t wait because Rihanna being a woman of color with her own makeup brand, I knew Pisces Queen RiRi would pull through with the foundation shades.
LET.ME.TELL.YOU (dramatic clapping) MS. Robyn Rihanna Fenty did not disappoint. I have not had the chance to go in store to find my foundation color because trying to match online is always a gamble. I decided to order the safest option online, which was the lip gloss. I knew that lip gloss was something I would use.
The amount of product in this lip gloss is amazing. It comes with 0.30 oz/ 9 mL in one tube for only $18 dollars. Now, I feel like I’m getting robbed by other brands. I know that the Fenty Beat gloss is the most expensive in the comparison to the ABH and Kylie. For a couple of dollars more you’re getting double or triple the product. Kylie Jenner is out here committing straight up price gouging with the amount of product her glosses have.
Fenty Beauty vs. Other Lip Glosses (amount of product)
Fenty Beauty Lip Luminizer $18 (0.30 oz/ 9 mL)
Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss $16 (0.16 oz/ 4.73 mL)
Kylie Cosmetics Gloss $15 (0.09 fl oz / 2.60ml)
Swatchy Swatch, Texture & Scent
The color is a satin finish rose gold with fine golden shimmers. The base color isn’t completely opaque. When it comes to glosses, I’m not always the biggest fan of an extremely pigmented lip gloss. The scent is to die for, it smells how sweet tarts taste. The texture isn’t sticky and has a comfortable feeling on the lips, almost like it’s hugging your lips. I’m a big fan of the applicator, it’s chubby and has a good amount of product, so you aren’t stuck dipping into the tube multiple times.
The only problem is that this lip gloss only comes in one shade. Rihanna if you read this… please make more colors with this formula. I need every single color in the Pantone universe to be made into this line of lip gloss. As soon as you possibly can. Get your product development team to start cranking these out. Thank You.
