Rihanna Is My Fairy Gothmother This Halloween
Rihanna has recently come out with an explosion of new makeup products for this upcoming holiday season. From a new highlighter palette to multi-purpose metallic crayons, she’s got your whole face covered.
However, in the spirit of Halloween I wanted to review the Fenty Stunna Lip Paint in the shade Uninvited, which is the goth-y black lipstick color of my emo dreams. Uninvited released alongside three other nude colors: Unveil, Uncuffed, and Unbutton. I personally have been loving Unbutton, which is an everyday peachy nude.
In preparation of being Sam from Danny Phantom this Halloween (I know she wears purple but I want to go full angst mode), I picked up Uninvited to try out for the weekend. It happened to be that I was sick so my lips didn’t go through a whole day of usual wear, but instead suffered through a whole day of sniffling and consuming mass amounts of chicken soup.
Upon application the lip paint stayed wet and glossy on my lips for a few minutes before drying down into a smooth finish. I only needed a single layer for full opacity, which is super impressive for a black lip. My usual Wet n’ Wild black lip typically needs two applications for the look I desire. My lips didn’t look dehydrated or chapped like I had thought they would, and stayed the same way for the next several hours. Around hour five I noticed some fading, which is great for such a dark lip. The only issue I had was the the lip paints claimed to be non-transferrable which wasn’t true for me.
Comparing Uninvited to other black lipsticks, it’s clear that it’s a strong contender. Not only was the opacity far better than other black lipsticks I’ve tried, but the finish of it is unique. The Fenty Lip Paints are a hybrid between a normal lipstick and a liquid lipstick in terms of texture and finish, leaving a sexy, velvet look. This is definitely going to be my choice for this year’s Halloween night.
