Sit down, babies, and I’ll explain to you why Rihanna keeps on changing the damn game with her genius. Ok, well, first of all, the packaging is to fucking die for? The container is an actual octagon and the gloss itself is all holographic, and shit, and I love me a good holographic color.
I got the shade Gal on the Moon, which apparently goes with every fucking thing. I didn’t know this going in, but sweet baby Jesus I’m glad I know now. It doesn’t feel like a lip gloss, and for someone like me who adores a good matte lipstick, that's a major plus! When you apply it on your lips, it looks like a blueish kind of color, but throughout the day it seems like it changes to a pinkish, holographic shade that’s really flattering on darker skin tones. Not to get off track but I don’t know — hats off to Rihanna for being dedicated to diversity, inclusion, and tapping into a market that other brands wouldn’t even try to break into for WHATEVER REASON.
But getting back to business, the lip gloss lasts *all* day — I only have to reapply after I eat, which is perfect for me because I like a one-and-done kind of situation. I am a simple girl who loves makeup that does all of the work for me (full-coverage foundation, blush that actually shows up, and lip gloss that stays on my lips just in case there’s a random photo-op opportunity, the usual). Anyway, if you were looking to try out Rihanna’s line, I feel like this is the best place to start, especially if you wanna live out your Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century looks! —Ignacia Fulcher
