Fenty Beauty By Rihanna Has Landed
The wait is over! Fenty Beauty by Rihanna has finally arrived at Harvey Nichols.
Fenty Beauty was created with a vision. For creator and founder Rihanna, it was essential “that women everywhere would be included”. After recognising a void in the industry, Rihanna focused on a range of traditionally hard to match skin tones, developing formulas that work for all skin types, and pinpointing universal shades. Her aim, above all, is to inspire: “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.”
Here are some highlights from the range:
Take your complexion to the next level with Match Stix Trios. Fenty Beauty's pre-bundled sets make it easy to conceal, contour, and highlight on repeat. These light-as-air makeup sticks are expertly curated – and magnetise together – so you’re always ready for anything.
Each set comes with two Match Stix Matte Skinsticks (conceal, contour) and one Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick (highlight) – all of which are weightless, easy to blend, and stay put. The ultra smooth formulas melt at first touch to a powder soft finish that’s so seamless, it’s impossible to tell where skin ends and makeup begins. They’re buildable, crease proof, and live to be layered in a range of combos that light up all skin tones.
And with a magnetic physical attraction, Matte and Shimmer Skinsticks click to each other, uniting for the total no-brainer, skin-defining package that’s always at your beck and call.
“I wanted to create a product that would be flexible, to give you your concealer, your contour, and your highlight. Match Stix lets you choose your best matches, and best of all, they’re magnetic so they click together and are easy to find in your bag. Match Stix Trios were customised to make it easy when doing your makeup; there are three steps and they’re all in here.” Rihanna.
The ultimate photo filter in foundation form. Born in 40 boundary-breaking shades, Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation gives skin an instantly smooth, pore-diffused, shine-free finish that easily builds from medium to full coverage. The oil-free formula is made with climate-adaptive technology that’s humidity resistant, sweatproof and won’t clog pores, so that wherever you are, it’s going to work on your skin. Best of all, this long-wearing, light-as-air texture is undetectable on skin – so you always look like you.
Fenty Beauty figured out that it takes the right balance of tone and texture to make foundation work on every skin type. The brand obsessed over custom pigment levels to capture your truest tones with a soft matte finish that’s just right – not too matte and not too shiny.
"Foundation is one of those areas in the beauty industry that has a big void for women at extreme ends of the shade spectrum. There’s this middle ground that's covered really, really well. But then if you're very pale or if you're very dark, there's not a lot of options. And so, I wanted to make sure that women of all skin tones were covered and they could be included in what I created." Rihanna.
Light up where you want, when you want. Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter was born to reflect your every mood with its line-up of luminising solos and duos. With a dose of skin-glorifying colour, Killawatt ranges from subtle day glow to insanely supercharged with shades that were designed for all skin tones.
Unlike your everyday highlighter, Killawatt keeps skin lit beyond sundown with its weightless long-wear formula – a cream-powder hybrid that instantly melts into skin and blends with almost zero effort. Another win, it’s loaded with superfine shimmer for an ultra smooth, creamy texture.
For killer radiance, Killawatt’s your go-to for highlighting your face, eyes, lips, collarbone… literally anywhere you crave a touch of light.
“You can use this on any part of your face; your eyes, your cheeks, your nose bridge, your collarbone. I like to use it on my body as well because it's such a high shine. You look at it and think, ‘Is it going to deliver? Is it going to deliver?’ Then – BAM! – it delivers!” Rihanna.
