Several meals later and I’m in love.


Rihanna’s new Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint is officially here, guys, and we honestly can’t deal. The shade Uncensored is a stunning red, “hand-picked by Rihanna and obsessively tested to make sure it looks incredible on everyone,” according to an official press statement from the brand.

The singer and beauty mogul said, “I wanted a lipstick that wouldn’t budge – even as you eat, even as you make out.” The brand also claims that the formula won't feather.

Get it from Sephora for $24.

Red lipstick is my go-to for literally everything, so I tried it out to see if 1) the pigment was as bold as the pics, 2) the formula was moisturizing, and 3) it’d hold up after turkey, dressing, collard greens, mac and cheese, and whatever else I could fit onto my plate(s).

Let's talk about the packaging, tho!

So first of all, the color EXCEEDED my expectations!!! I knew it was gonna be good bc Fenty has consistently delivered, but I wasn’t expecting it to be so vibrant and rich. You know it’s good when you look in the mirror and say “Yaaaas!” at your own reflection. Just look at how beautiful this color is.

What I love most is the shade. It's literally the perfect red! Also, the formula isn't drying at all. It glides on effortlessly and dries matte, but it doesn't cake or crack like so many other formulas. And when it comes to staying power, it lasts through my meals… and I eat like a prisoner who just got home from a 12-year bid.

I searched #STUNNA on Instagram to see what it looked like on other skin tones, and it looked so good on literally everybody.
