Rihanna’s New Makeup Line is Launching This Month

Singer, philanthropist, beauty & fashion icon Rihanna is launching her own makeup line and I don’t even know what to do with myself. Over the past decade, Rihanna has set herself apart with her bold fashion and beauty choices. She could wear a trashbag to the Met Gala next year and people would still go nuts! Speaking of Met Gala, if you missed her ‘pretty in pink’ makeup look from the 2017 event, you must have been living under a rock. It’s probably the most recreated makeup look of the year thus far.

So it’s only natural that this launch be an event in itself! The line, aptly named Fenty Beauty (Fenty is the superstar’s last name) will be debuting at Sephora and Harvey Nichols at midnight on September 8, 2017. The line will be available globally upon launch. Not much is known about the product offerings, but what little we do know is thanks to a flutter of sneak peeks released in the past few days by all parties associated with the launch.

First Impression: Anastasia Beverly Hills Fall 2016 Mini Lipgloss Set

After lusting over the gorgeousness of the Summer 2016 mini lipgloss kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills, I jumped on the fall release the second it appeared on the ABH site! This set of six is perfect for the gloss lover who doesn’t want to be confined by just a few colors (the price is the equivalent of less than two full size glosses). After swatching, I’m ready to give you the low-down of my first impression below!

Last year’s fall lip gloss release slipped through my fingers like sand and I was so upset! I STILL need Tara, but that’s neither here nor there as it’s a new year and a new season! Anastasia Beverly Hills didn’t disappoint with this collection of six mini glosses in some super ‘autumn-is-coming’ shades. Based on early swatches, I’d have to say my favorites are Maple (AHHHMAZING), Carla, and Rum (And I thought Fudge was perfect for brown skin!). 

Maple is the metallic gloss and it has all the opacity of a non-shimmer gloss, but with this intense metallic reflection that reminds me of some of my favorite eyeshadows. Moving on, I wasn’t expecting to like Carla that much since I’m not a red gloss gal, but it’s one of those colors you slap on when you want to stand out. I’ve already got plans to pull this out for a party next week muahahaha.

Finally, I’m absolutely in love with Rum. If you have the Fudge gloss (or have seen me ramble about it on Instagram), it’s a tad bit darker making it a deeper nude for my lips without being straight up brown. I don’t know if I have ever seen a gloss this shade, with this opacity, that performs so well. I’ll be alternating Rum and Fudge this fall for sure!
