Considering Rihanna’s makeup is ALWAYS on point, we were beyond excited at the news that her Fenty beauty range has finally landed on Irish shores in Harvey Nichols in Dundrum. It was almost three years in the making, but if the hype is to be believed, totally worth the wait. Think perfect smokey eye palettes, DGAF lipstick shades, flawless foundations for all skin tones, and the highlighters – did we mention the highlighters? The key to this collection is that it’s about solid staples with everyday colours and shades, as opposed to novelty, limited-edition pieces that will be here and gone in a month and that you’ll only wear on a night out.
It’s about enhancing what’s already there; radiance and a natural glow and importantly, catering to the masses – this is a range where everything has been created with diversity in mind.
In a press statement, Rihanna explained that it was essential “that women everywhere would be included… Makeup is there for you to have fun with. It should never feel like pressure. It should never feel like a uniform. Feel free to take chances, and take risks, and dare to do something new or different.”
Considering it’s a debut collection, it’s huge in quantity; including 40 different foundations, a primer, lip glosses, highlighter duos, skin sticks, a primer, lip products, brushes, sponges and even blotting paper. With prices on average around the €25 mark and upwards, the singer emphasised that quality was key. “We work really long and hard on the texture of each formula. It was really important to me that each product is made to easily build and layer with lightweight textures that are flexible even when you want to re-apply,” she explained.
You know the drill, get down to Harvey Nichols to see the collection in full and see some highlights in our gallery above.
