A beauty guru’s dream, a competitor’s nightmare: Fenty Beauty 

 

Ladies and gentlemen, say hello to your ride or die product, the definition of perfection and your endless beauty craze. No, I’m not talking about the discovery of setting spray (even though that really transformed my life), I’m talking about the latest foundation that hit stores and shook the boots of beauty glamazons and competitors alike. That’s right, Fenty Beauty by Rihanna, the musician turned beauty queen. 


At this point you have probably already heard about this newest phenomenon and its’ unusual ability to take our skin on a much needed vacation and somehow injects our skin with a colassol amount of confidence. Rihanna has provided a wide variety in her collection such as: highlighters (bring sunglasses for this one), foundation (tears from God himself), countour sticks and smooth, creamy primer that offers unbelievable moisture to your skin. But this isn’t the only thing that has sent her buyers in a frenzy, Rihanna has provided an incredible amount of colors for her liquid foundation line and has truly offered an option for everyone (it’s about time someone did this).

 Just a few weeks ago, Lily and I took a trip to the mall and decided to take our minds off of midterms and stress and bring our focus into the wonders of Sephora. My ultimate mission was to get a color match from this collection and if I liked it, I fully intended on spending a pretty penny on its’ many wonders and would eat a jar of mayonnaise to finally get my hands on it. I marched right up to the Fenty Beauty’s wide selection and asked an associate for a skin match. After trying two colors, the employee tells me, “Give it a couple minutes to let the foundation set”. Waiting, waiting, waiting…before I know it she takes the hand mirror and brings it to my face. “Wow, my skin looks….almost unreal”, I said with a hypnotic gaze. Unfortunately upon popular demand, they did not have many colors left so I had to resort to ordering online. I was so eager to get this baby in the mail that I checked the mailbox every day, stalked my tracking number from UPS (and shamelessly my mailman) and gazed out my living room window with the uptmost anticipation. 
Because it’s that good.

My point here is that the hype is REAL! Yes, you are hearing that from everybody and reading positive reviews left and right but its true, this isn’t a paid advertisment and I am not getting sent free Fenty products by this positive review, I am simply impressed.

For those of you who have not jumped on this trend, take some time out of your day and prance your pedicured feet into your local Sephora. You will not regret this decision and thankfully, neither will your bank account.

The runway of the VMA’s

writtenL

This past Sunday 5.68 million people tuned in to watch MTV’s annual Video Music Awards(VMA); hosted this year by, famous singer, Katy Perry. It was a night of glamour, the test of true fandom, and just the perfect amount of drama. Sadly, that wasn’t enough to at least break-even on the amount of views tallied in for the 2016 VMA’s. That night, 12.1 million viewers were on the edge of their seats, but not to see who would take home the astronaut man. With sweaty palms and bitten down fingernails, the Game of Thrones season finale kept fans glued to HBO.
