Rihanna is after all of your money, and you're going to be totally okay with it. With Mattemoiselle dropping today — which is the 14 piece collection of beautifully shaded matte lipsticks — you would think that would be the biggest capsule launch for Fenty Beauty today. But the day after Christmas is proving to be even more exciting than originally expected, because those lipsticks aren't the only things to drool over today. Rihanna has also gifted beauty lovers with her first ever Fenty mini set, dubbed the Bomb Baby Mini Lip and Face Set. And it is seriously adorable and tiny — but still packs plenty of punch.
The set includes a small version of Fenty's dazzling peachy-champagne shimmer — aka the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Hu$tla Baby — and the universally-flattering Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer, which is a sparkly nude pink lip gloss that you can wear over lipstick or solo on your naked lips. And the best part is, it's now available in Sephora for a mere $23!
When you scroll through Rihanna's Fenty Beauty posts on Instagram, the number one comment from followers is a general freak-out over how beautiful and fun the products are. But the runner-up comment after the hyperventilation is a collective groan over how much money makeup lovers are losing over all of these fabulous launches. It's nearly impossible to see the radical lipstick shades and the mega-watt highlighters and not not want to shift around one's budget to buy a product or two. But for some people, their cashflow doesn't allow them to indulge in even that.
Which is why this cheaper, mini set is perfect. It lets everyone dabble in these two best-selling products, without breaking the bank.
And considering that a full-sized pan of Hu$tla Baby is $34 and a full-sized tube of Gloss Bomb is originally $18, buying these two products together would set a person back $52. Which is quite the splurge. Compare that to $23 — which is more than 50 percent off — and you have a price point that leaves you feeling less guilty.
The interesting thing is, though, Fenty Beauty isn't marketing it as a major money savor. Instead, it's meant to be makeup you can easily travel with, without taking up too much space in your cosmetics kit or suitcase. So that super reasonable price point is just Rihanna being a benevolent star and giving us a break. The product description reads, "A must-have set of Fenty Beauty's most coveted luminizers for the face and lips in travel-friendly sizes for killer radiance on the fly."
Seeing how these two products are two of Fenty's best sellers, Rihanna probably figured that people would want to take them if they were packing for a trip or a getaway. And wouldn't it be more convenient if they were a little less bulky and more portable? Genius.
You can use the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter to highlight your face, eyes, lips, collarbone, shoulders — literally anywhere you want to shimmer. If you want to glow on your vacation, this is the perfect way to do it. You can then cap off the charged look with sparkle-flecked lips. And seeing how one of the upsides of vacation is the fact you turn into a flirty maven — whether with your partner or strangers — that lippie is the perfect thing for your arsenal, especially considering RiRi's intentions when she created it. "I made it because I wanted the girls to get kissed more," she shared.
Whether you want glittery kisses or cheekbones you can see from space, the Bomb Baby Mini Lip and Face Set is the perfect, affordable way to reach those goals.
