When Rihanna created Fenty Beauty, she was on a serious mission to create an inclusive makeup line that offered something for every girl—no matter her skin tone. The singer and beauty business owner stayed committed to her brand’s “beauty for all” slogan when she dropped the Pro Filt’r Soft Mate Longer Foundation in 40 shades, making sure every complexion was served. Now she’s just debuted not one—but two lip shades—that are not just universally flattering but look ESPECIALLY dope against brown skin!
When Fenty Beauty released it’s Stunna Lip Paint Longer Fluid lip Color in Uncensored, a universal red that looks good on every and any skin tone from the fairest to the darkest—we were shook. It was the biggest thing in red lipstick since MAC’s cult classic and universal lipstick in Ruby Woo. She was changing the biz in a way a lot of beauty brands weren’t before. But the only other lip color in the Fenty Beauty line at the time was Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in Fenty Glow, a shimmering rose nude gloss that also looked good against any complexion. For months, Fenty Beauty fans—myself included—wondered when will RiRi finally drop more shades for Stunna Lip Paint and just like that, she surprises us out of nowhere with two new nude shades that of course—are universally flattering.
The first shade is called Unveil and it dropped on Friday. It’s a rich chocolate brown that gives off great 90s-inspired brown vibes on light and medium complexions and makes a perfect nude for darker girls. The color is bomb!
The second boss a$$ nude shade, which literally only debuted a few hours ago, is called Uncuffed and it’s more of a rosy mauve-hued color that’s a perfect for fall. They are calling it the “just kissed” color and I totally see why.
These new lipstick are basically the nude lipsticks we never thought we needed and if the formula is anything like Uncensored—which it has to be because all three are part of the Stunna Lip Paint line—we know we won’t have to worry about our lips, drying, running, or peeling an hour later because Stunna stays put.
Considering 90s fashion is making a major comeback this season with plaid prints, baggy jeans, body suits, and denim overalls, dropping two brown-ish nudes a few days into fall was just plain genius. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to dress this pout up in one of these dope shades because I am all about that nude lipstick life right now.
