Fenty Beauty, the highly anticipated cosmetic line from the one and only Rihanna. Who has proven herself time and time again she never comes to play or disappoint. She first announced she would be releasing Fenty Beauty at the beginning of August this year and gave supporters the chance to place their pre orders. On Friday, September 8th it seemed like the world stopped (The beauty world at least) when Fenty Beauty officially arrived. Social media was booming with photos, videos, and all around obsession for this new brand and I can totally see why. Rihanna is not only beautiful but she definitely has the brains to match. She realized how in the beauty industry women of color more often than not aren't though of or included when other popular brands make their products. It can be difficult for some women in our community to find their shade of foundation or find a product that compliments their skin tone. So Ms. Rihanna decided to make it easier for us with products like the cult favorite, blinding highlight "Trophy Wife" or the "Pro Filt'r" soft matte longer foundation that comes in 40 shades! From the palest tones to deep, rich, melanin filled tones; she made room for women of color and all shades to feel included.
As Houston, Texas is recovering from the disaster that was Hurricane Harvey, now we have to witness the wrath of Hurricane Irma destroying certain islands in the Caribbean (Antigua and Barbuda, Dominican Republic, Haiti, St. Martin, St. Barthelemy, Anguilla, St. Kitts and Nevis, Virgin Islands, Turks and Caicos). I have family that lives in the U.S. Virgin Islands, who were directly affected by the storm. I am keeping them in my thoughts and prayers, as well as anyone else made a victim by this storm. My heart breaks for all the people that were affected. If you want to help or donate, please visit the links below.
