Fenty Beauty is certainly keeping fans on their toes. Rihanna's brand has announced not one but two new Stunna Lip Paint shades. The beauty mogul has taken to Instagram to tease the new products, writing, “Y’all been wanting more shades... so guess what?! it’s #STUNNAWEEK! introducing a new shade to the #STUNNA family... #UNVEIL. This rich chocolate brown looks bomb on everybody!”
The new shades include Unveil, a chocolate brown lip paint, and Uncuffed, a rosy mauve lip paint. Both are 12-hour liquid lipsticks with a soft matte finish meant for all skin tones. According to Rihanna, "I wanted a lipstick that wouldn’t budge—even as you eat, even as you make out. It’s a 12-hour formula, which is one of my favorite things about it. It really lasts all day and is there no matter what you do!”
The original Stunna lip paint, Uncensored, was a universal shade of red that took the beauty industry by storm. Though some social media readers consider the Unveil shade an unwelcome look back at the 90s, other have already vowed to stockpile the lip paint. Both shades are available for $24 each on FentyBeauty.com, and also at Sephora and Harvey Nichols.
The brand says Rihanna tested several shades before deciding on the rich chocolate brown and rosy mauve shades that she believes look good on everyone. The new shades come after the singer was featured on the cover of Allure's "Best of Beauty" issue and a week after her first Savage x Fenty NYFW show, which was widely acclaimed for its inclusivity as well as its fashions. Unbeknown to viewers, Rihanna actually wore the new Unveil shade at her show.
For those who are unaware, Uncuffed references Cuffing Season, which refers to the fall season when the cool weather and time spent indoors supposedly make singles lonely and desperate to find love. According to the dating app Hinge, fifteen percent of men and five percent of women are more likely to actively look for a relationship, or get cuffed, in winter than at any other time of year. Cuffing season officially begins on November 1, according to the site, and ends appropriately the day after Valentine’s Day. As far as Rihanna is concerned, though, feel free to remain Uncuffed and loving it this winter.
