If there's one thing I know to be true in this world, it's that Rihanna knows how to wear a red lip (and literally all other makeup, but that's beside the point). And yet, when Fenty Beauty launched back in September, it was a stunning collection rife with highlighters and inclusive foundation shades — but surprisingly lacking when it came to bold lip colors. 

Now, just in time for the holiday season, Rihanna has decided to bless beauty lovers everywhere by bestowing upon them the perfect red lip color.

Called "Stunna Lip Paint," the product will launch on Nov. 23 on FentyBeauty.com, Sephora.com and HarveyNichols.com, as well as in Sephora and Harvey Nichols stores. Rihanna herself announced the new product via Instagram on Thursday, and though there are few additional details about the price or formula itself, it's safe to say from the images that are available that this is the perfect bright red. Slightly richer than a cherry, with a blue base, the scarlet hue was no doubt designed to flatter a wide range of skin tones, if it follows in Fenty Beauty's established MO. It's cheerful, festive and chic as hell. Our lips are ready and waiting.

UPDATE, Monday, Nov. 13, 1:30 p.m.: According to an official release from the brand, Stunna Lip Paint is a liquid formula that was, indeed, created to flatter every skin tone. "The perfect red is hard to get right, and it's really hard to find your red that works on your skin tone," said Rihanna in a statement. The release also claims 12 hours of wear without feathering. "I wanted a lipstick that wouldn't budge — even as you eat, even as you make out," the oh-so-relatable singer added. The brand also revealed the price of the product: the universal red lip color will sell for $24 a pop.
