Riri and the Fenty Beauty team have worked their magic yet again with their latest line-up of high-pigment lipstick bullets. Long-lasting, hydrating and RIDICULOUSLY smooth, the Icon Semi-Matte Refillable Lipsticks are what we call “love at first swipe”. And in case you need a little more convincing, here’s why these featherlight tubes of goodness are worth every penny!
1. The Pigments
A little back story on the inception of this range – in an interview with Allure, Rihanna shares, “I’ve always loved lipstick since the day I saw my mom applying red lipstick.” This very memory served as the inspiration behind her much-loved lipstick shade MVP – a vibrant and universal red that’s the ultimate confidence booster for all skin tones.
Unlike Fenty Beauty’s former lipstick line-ups of statement tints, the Icon collection sticks to the classics – 13 shades of contemporary and versatile rouges and nudes, so every complexion has a signature hue. Major Magnate, She a CEO, Crowd Surfr, and MVP, of course, are staples in our hot-girl summer lipstick circuit right now…
2. The Shape
A little fun fact: the triangular tip of these lipstick bullets was actually designed to perfectly hug and outline Rihanna’s signature Cupid’s bow – meaning, not only do these provide plush colour, but also sculpt the lip line with such supreme precision, you’ll likely ditch your lip pencils altogether.
3. The Packaging
Since sustainable beauty and refillability are top of mind for many beauty brands nowadays, Fenty’s Icon lippies also feature a unique and nifty twist in the form of refillable tubes – a first in the Fenty Beauty lip make-up collection. And switching up (or switching out) your shades is pretty straightforward! Simply slide the base of the lipstick case out and then click and twist in your refill as demoed in the TikTok below:
