The VMAs might be over, but the beauty world is still obsessing over the style from the ceremony. There were plenty of swoon-worthy beauty trends that took the stage, but there was one that stole the show. What lip color did Rihanna wear at the VMAs, you ask? She actually wore two different colors, and well-known beauty vlogger NikkieTutorials revealed the exact shades on her Snapchat.
It's not everyday that a celeb takes the stage in something you can actually buy, but Rihanna is no average performer. While the rest of the world was focused on all of the singer's trendy outfits, YouTuber NikkieTutorials was zeroed in on her lipstick. So much so, in fact, that she actually found the two exact lip colors that the Video Vanguard Award winner wore on stage.
The makeup in question was Rihanna's bright red lip and the vampy color she wore to accept her award. It turns out that the lippies are from Coloured Raine, which the brand confirmed on its Instagram account. They also revealed the exact colors: the red shade is Cherry Blossom and the dark purple is Raine Fever. In the vlogger's recent Snaps she shared swatches of the lippies and even a code to save some money off on the $17 liquid lipsticks.
The beauty guru, who just created a collection with Too Faced, knows a thing or two about makeup. It only makes sense that she would hunt down the exact shades. If $17 is a little steep a price for you, then you can use the code NIKKIE1 to save some money.
I love that Riri loves an affordable, indie brand so much. Just think; you could possibly have one of the singer's go-to shades already in your makeup bag. That's super awesome, if you ask me.
Here's exactly what you looked like on stage, so you can decide which one to shop.
1. Cherry Blossom
The Coloured Raine shade looked gorgeous with her all red and white look.

It looks purple in the tube, but the singer shows how vampy the color really is.
