Beauty Hold the lip­stick: pay lip ser­vice to gloss in­stead.

It’s time to put matte lip­stick on hold – with another beauty sta­ple mak­ing a come­back

When it comes to trends, where Ri­hanna goes, the rest of the world fol­lows. So it’s worth not­ing that when the first Fenty Beauty by Ri­hanna col­lec­tion launched re­cently, it con­sisted of skin per­fec­tors (in­clud­ing primers, foun­da­tions and high­lighters) and just one colour cos­metic: lip gloss.

Is this the end of matte lip­stick’s reign? It could be. “Lip gloss is some­thing you can throw on no mat­ter what out­fit you’re wear­ing or how much time you have – it will al­ways look good,” says Fenty Beauty by Ri­hanna global make-up artist Priscilla Ono. Easy ap­pli­ca­tion is also key – prac­ti­cally any­one can read­ily ap­ply gloss with­out a mir­ror.

The singer’s Gloss Bomb Uni­ver­sal Lip Lu­minizer it­self is a sheer peach nude that she hand-picked for its abil­ity to work on ev­ery skin tone. “It’s not too dark, so it looks great on the light­est skin, but not so light that it looks pasty on dark skin,” Ono con­firms. The for­mula is long-wear­ing, packed with hydrating shea but­ter and boasts a hint of mi­cro shim­mer that Ono says “gives the per­fect re­flec­tion for the il­lu­sion of beau­ti­ful, full lips”.
