Today is an exciting day for the beauty world, Rihanna has launched Fenty Beauty, a global make up brand, in 17 countries. Exciting huh? If I'm honest, it wasn't until I discovered more about the brand and watched the advert that I got really excited. Rihanna has developed a brand that a lot of people are talking about and it's for good reasons. Today is the day and Fenty beauty has finally launched in 1,600 stores across 17 countries! I'm sure a lot of you have seen the advert for this going around on social media, one of the best adverts I've seen from a beauty brand. Fenty Beauty by Rihanna was created to work across all skin types an tones, with Rhianna's mandate of inclusivity, it offers a wide range of products for traditionally hard-to-match skin tones, which is great. It really is designed to be an inclusive brand. I was invited down this morning to have a first look at the products and test them so here you go, a first look at Fenty Beauty by Rihanna.

As well as offering products that work well across all skin tones, Fenty Beauty also redefines the rules of beauty with light-as-air formulas, designer to be layered. Below you will see my first look review of Fenty beauty by Rihanna as well as swatches. 

The brand describes itself as like Rihanna, both edgy and feminine (I think it's beautiful too, much like Rihanna!). Fenty beauty comes with a complexion-focused product assortment developed to work together and provide everyone with Rihanna's real-life method for radiance, the 'Fenty Face'. I cannot believe how beautiful the design is. A welcome addition to any make up bag. Let's just say, I fell in love this morning. 


the fenty face


The Fenty Face - The idea behind 'The Fenty Face' is that it was created for women of all skin tones, of all personalities. Rihanna said: “These steps are key to starting your makeup, no matter the look you’re going for. This is where the fun begins” For Rihanna, the secret to radiance lies in the very first step of the Fenty Face, a soft matte filt’r—because no matter your skin type, adding glow on glow = unwanted shine. The second step? Layer your highlight for strategically-placed glow—it’s all about lighting up where you want. Lastly, get ahead of shine by blotting on the fly, wherever and whenever; Rihanna believes that being photoready means being shine-free. Tested backstage, on stage, and in real life, The Fenty Face is the key to unlocking all of makeup’s limitless possibilities.

Fenty Beauty Full Range - The process above is at the core of this 91-sku line but of course, you can mix and match and wear the products however you wish. Let's just say, the range is immaculate in every way.

- 1 Universal Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer - I'm a sucker for a primer and was most excited to try this. It's described as 'The filt’r for sexy skin in real life'. A shine-stopping, pore-diffusing primer that smooths the way for better foundation application and longer wear with an instant retouch effect. I think this will be my morning routine for the foreseeable future. This feels so soft on my hand and the difference is so noticeable when I hold both my hands next to each other. My hand literally looks flawless. Buy now at Sephora, Sephora.com, and in the UK, in Harvey Nichols and Harveynichols.com.

- 6 cream-powder hybrid Killawatt Freestyle Highlighters for face and eyes - I don't really get on with cream highlighters but these are beautiful and actually, so soft and creamy even though they're powder. I personally love the 3D Hyper-Metallic Gold, the idea behind these? Killer radiance. These are weightless, long-wear cream-powder hybrid highlighters (yep she's thought of everything) that range from subtle day glow to insanely supercharged. Check out the swatch of Trophy Wife, it's insane. That glow is the best I've ever seen from a highlighter! I'll be using it on face and eyes. I think it'll look good in the tear duct too. Buy now at Sephora, Sephora.com, and in the UK, in Harvey Nichols and Harveynichols.com.

- 1 universal lip gloss known as Gloss Bomb - When I heard 'universal gloss' I was like, how?! But apparently it's the best universal rose nude that looks good on everyone! For me, it makes my lips feel juicy, look bigger but it isn't sticky and the texture is perfect. This is actually one of my favourites, it's so simple and easy to wear and just makes my lips feel amazing. Buy now at Sephora, Sephora.com, and in the UK, in Harvey Nichols and Harveynichols.com.

- A variety of application tools - I need the whole set for my beauty bag. The sponge was actually cut by Rihanna herself in order to get a product that allows you to blend and get into precise areas. Rihanna has been so hands on with this range, only making me love it more. Buy now at Sephora, Sephora.com, and in the UK, in Harvey Nichols and Harveynichols.com.

Rihanna has created every detail of each product in her collection, which makes me love it even more. So often people put their name to their product but don't actually have much say. It's clear that her passions and designs have come to life here, resulting in a beautiful brand for everyone. From the playful names, the epic shades, the insane glow and, the fact that she has included everyone. Fenty beauty is here to stay. She also personally appointed three prestigious makeup artists to represent Fenty Beauty around the world. This Global Artistry Team includes James Kaliardos as Resident Artist, and Priscilla Ono and Hector Espinal as Global Makeup Artists. 

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna is available starting September 8, 2017. Buy now at Sephora, Sephora.com, and in the UK, in Harvey Nichols and Harveynichols.com.

Do you like the sound of Fenty Beauty? I think and hope this will lead the way for the beauty industry. Bravo Rihanna.
