It's safe to say that Rihanna can never make a Fenty Beauty announcement without causing total hysteria. Word that the brand would be releasing a single red liquid lipstick was enough to send shockwaves through the beauty community. Now, the latest revelation that Rihanna's Fenty Beauty Lip Paint is mega kiss-proof is the news that's going to really send fans over the edge.
From the start, Fenty Beauty boasted a whopping 40 foundation shades, 20 multipurpose face sticks, and dozens of highlighters. But the Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb was the sole lip product within the entire collection — barring a couple limited edition holiday offerings. Now, the universal, rose gold lippie finally has a sister in the form of a long-lasting liquid lipstick.
It seemed that its matte formula and universal, true red hue was all there was to know about the Stunna Lip Paint— that is until Ri elaborated on the lippie's magical staying power.
"I wanted a lipstick that wouldn’t budge— even as you eat, even as you make out,” Rihanna said in a press release. Described by the brand as a "one stroke intensity" lip color, this 12-hour wear matte just may be your solution for bold lips that can withstand the juiciest kisses.
As much as a pinky-nude like Gloss Bomb pairs well with any look, every beauty lover could use a statement red that always slays. Enter Stunna: A shade hand-picked by Ri Ri herself, according to Fenty, releasing on Nov. 23.
"The perfect red is hard to get right, and it’s really hard to find YOUR red that works on your skin tone,” said Rihanna. Girlfriend clearly understands the struggle because hunting down a good red is seriously difficult AF.
Created as the ideal shade of red that compliments any skin tone, Stunna is $24 and can be your new go-to when your pout could stand to be bolder. It may sound too good to be true that the hue can suit every wearer, but Fenty's Instagram feed is all the proof you need of its glorious universality.
You'll likely fall in love with its formulation, too. The brand describes its the hue as a soft-matte pigment that dries down. Although mattes can typically feel drying and heavy, Stunna features a weightless formula for a barely-there feel against your pout.
It won't feather, nor will it budge, staying smooth even through a makeout session, if you take Ri's word for it. That's honestly a makeup maven's dream come true.
But it's not just the fact that Stunna is kiss-proof that makes it stand out. Perhaps more unique than its formula is its applicator.
In a Stunna Lip Paint tutorial, Rihanna finally gave a sneak peak of the lipstick's wand. This isn't your traditional doe-foot applicator or flat stick. Instead, the hexagonal tube opens to reveal a wand with a rounded tip and hourglass shape.
Ri Ri demonstrates in her first-ever mini tutorial how effortlessly the ballpoint-like wand glides across the lips. The unique design makes defining every curve of your pout easy peasy. Plus, the doe-foot looks super plush and comfy.
After seeing it in action, beauty fanatics are so here for the statement red and its applicator.
Perhaps, BadGalRiRi should consider a career in beauty blogging.
This is makeup porn at its best.
Stunna even has some makeup lovers hoping the handy design inspires other brands. Well done, Ri.
If you want to rock a gorgeous, power pout via Stunna, be sure to get ready for launch on 11/23. If the success of previous Fenty Beauty launches prove anything, it's that stores can hardly keep Ri's goodies stocked.
Good luck getting this luscious red lippie — and get ready to pucker up.
