It’s been less than 24 hours since Rihanna unleashed just shy of 100 beauty products on fentybeauty.com, Sephora, and Harvey Nichols. (That’s 40 shades of foundation, 33 multi-use sticks, six powder highlighter compacts, five brushes, one blending sponge, one roll of blotting paper, one translucent powder, one primer, and one lip gloss, if you want to get specific.) It’s also been less than 24 hours since I got the opportunity to ask Rihanna herself (looking regal in a gilded-from-eye-to-cheek look created with her new Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Trophy Wife, I might add) the one question that had been nagging me since I first saw the collection: Where are the rest of the lip products?
I know, I know. What a waste of my 10 seconds with Rihanna. But hear me out. This is Rihanna’s makeup line. Rihanna, whose lips, on any given day, might be the exact color of hot sauce, or a brand new pair of jeans, or a classic Sharpie. And while, yes, you can wear the bright orange-y red Ridiiic or shimmery lilac Unicorn (both Shimmer Match Stix) on your lips, it only seems appropriate that she would, sooner or later, have plans to bless us with a whole spate of lip colors like the ones she wears on the reg.
And I have some very, very good news to report. The answer is yes. “You’ll just have to wait and see,” Rihanna said at first. “I don’t want to put too much into your pipe right now. There are endless possibilities.” For now, her one lip-specific product is her Gloss Bomb in a color called Fenty Glow. “I wanted a color that would work well on all skin tones, and, you know, it might’ve been a challenge, but I didn’t care,” Rihanna added. “We had to switch things up a few times to get the right texture, the right smell, and it came down to this perfect rosy shade with a little bit of shimmer. It gives you something, but it doesn’t look like you’re doing the most. We’ll do that later.” See? Yes.
