Fenty Beauty by Rihanna is releasing a new lip paint, and it's versatile enough to be worn by anyone

The perfect red lipstick is not just hard to find, once you find it it'll be a treasure in your makeup collection for years to come. What makes a lipstick the ultimate one you'll own? The ease of application, texture, comfort level, colour, shade and finish. Rihanna thinks she's created one that will be a must-have in our lipstick wardrobes and she might just be right. Her new product? The Stunna Lip Paint in Uncensored, a liquid lipstick in a bold yet flattering scarlet. We haven't gotten our hands on this beauty yet, but judging from the video Rihanna posted on her Instagram, it looks like it's pretty easy to apply. Another thing we're loving is the cute packaging that looks more like an eyeliner or mini nail polish than a liquid lipstick.


In keeping with Fenty Beauty's inclusive beauty mantra, the shade seems to match all skin tones. See it worn on Asian, olive-toned and dark complexions and on Lady R herself on both her and Fenty Beauty's Instagrams, and you'll see how the shade instantly brightens the skin and electrifies the entire face. Bonus points to the plush, velvety finish that looks like the perfect matte-cream hybrid — we don't see a cracked lip in sight so we have high hopes that this meets all our lip-spectations. If you're wondering when this will hit Singapore, you can find it online on Sephora from 26 November from noon and instore from 27 November. It's likely to fly off the shelves, so grab one quick if you're looking for a red this festive season.
