You know when your friend wears a shade of lipstick and it looks so amazing that you have to ask where it’s from. But when you try it on, the bright beautiful red that worked so well on your bff falls flat on your face. This was just one of the sad realities of life…that is, until Rihanna got into the beauty biz.
Earlier this year, the Barbados native and her cosmetics brand Fenty Beauty made headlines with the release of the 40 shades foundation line, which offered a huge array of foundation options for people of all backgrounds. Now the superstar singer and the beauty line are taking their all-inclusive approach to lipstick with the Mattemoiselle line of 14 matte colours.
If this video doesn’t make you want to collect ALL the colours, there’s something wrong.
Rihanna has been teasing the various shades and their playful names over on her Instagram page for a week now.
She’s sported Midnight Wasabi (great, now we want sushi).
One of the Boyz, which is a buttery pink perfect for NYE.
And Clapback, a dark, “I dare you” shade that is so classic Riri.
But our favourite we’ve seen on Rihanna so far has to be the PMS, which is just the perfect shade of moody, brick red with hints of brown.
“I wanted a lipstick collection where every shade works on every skin tone,” said Rihanna in a Fenty Beauty press release. “I wanted to prove that lipstick is meant to be fun, not feared.”
These playful, inclusive lipsticks might be the best stocking stuffer of the year. Too bad they’re not available until December 26. Gifts for New Years is totally a thing, right? Grab a handful at Sephora or at Fenty Beauty’s online boutique starting on Boxing Day.
