These new arrivals from Fenty Skin and Beauty are wish list worthy
Poutsicle Hydrating Lip Stain and Cookies N Clean Whipped Clay Detox Face Mask are the latest additions to Rihanna's covetable makeup and skincare lines
Dubbed the most-anticipated beauty drop of the year, Rihanna's coveted brands Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin landed in SA in May.
The unforgettable launch party, hosted by Fenty Beauty global makeup artist, Hector Espinal, saw more than 300 A-listers gather in Joburg to celebrate the arrival of these truly inclusive skincare and beauty ranges, which are designed to work across all skin types and tones.
Now local beauty aficionados have something else to celebrate: there are two freshly-launched Fenty products to add to their makeup and skincare arsenals. This includes the Poutsicle Hydrating Lip Stain and Cookies N Clean Whipped Clay Detox Face Mask.
Let's take a closer look at these new arrivals, plus other noteworthy Fenty Beauty and Skin buys that warrant a spot on your wish list:
Poutsicle Hydrating Lip Stain
“Makeup is all about play, and when I was developing this lip stain, I had so much fun,” says Rihanna. “This product just hits different. You get that sexy, wet-look shine and your lips feel super hydrated.”
Available in four vibrant shades, Poutsicle Hydrating Lip Stain, R485, goes on glossy and leaves behind a soft tint for an effortless, long-lasting and low-maintenance look.
Feather- and bleed-resistance, it provides sheer-to-medium coverage while delivering juicy, all-day hydration. That's because the formula features an oil-in-water innovation and includes squalene, an organic compound, to lock in moisture and condition the lips, leaving them feeling soft and smooth.
Oh, and did we mention this lip stain is vegan and cruelty-free too — what's not to love?
Cookies N Clean Whipped Clay Detox Face Mask
Say hello to snatched pores with Cookies N Clean, R650, the latest addition to the Fenty Skin line.
“I wanted to create a detoxifying face mask that would really work, but also be caring enough to leave your skin looking and feeling soft and smooth — never tight or dried out,” says Rihana on the inspiration behind this new arrival.
“I was inspired to name this mask Cookies N Clean because the results are just as delicious-looking as the formula’s whipped texture.”
With a base of white Kaolin clay that's studded with charcoal “crumbs”, this indulgent face mask really does look as appetising as cookies and cream. Together these star ingredients, along with salicylic acid (BHA), extract dirt and oil, absorb impurities and detoxify and cleanse the pores, while rhubarb and ginger extracts soothe and condition the skin.
Unlike your average clay mask, it won't leave your face feeling “stripped” as the formula is balanced with moisturising shea butter and other hydrating ingredients.
Best of all, this “clean” skincare product is suitable for all types of skin — even sensitive or dry skin. It's also fragrance-free, vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free and comes in Earth-conscious packaging.
