Finally, some good news: There's some shimmery newness coming from Fenty Beauty this spring. Lots of it, in fact. Starting with a matte, shine-free finish (courtesy of the brand's Pro Filt'r foundation) and then layering tons of highlighter over top has been the Fenty Beauty M.O. since its launch last year. Now the brand is expanding this philosophy to the realm of body makeup, with the introduction of glimmery body cosmetics that supposedly make your skin look so good you'll wonder, "Who needs clothes?"
On Monday, Rihanna herself took to her own Instagram stories to share a first look at the new drop of products, amazingly dubbed the "Beach Please" collection, which will be available on April 6. The range is all about bringing back the body shimmer that ruled the early 2000s: It includes Body Lava — a glimmery liquid highlighter intended for the body, which will come in at least two shades (but if we know Fenty Beauty, it'll be way more) — a blending brush and something called a "Fairy Bomb," which is a fuzzy, spherical makeup pouf stuffed with highlighter pigments that can be dusted just about anywhere.
While additional details about the new products are not yet available, it's safe to say that RiRi is quite excited about this new, shimmer-packed bounty. Like all of her Fenty Beauty offerings, they're items she actually uses herself; according to one of her Insta Stories captions, her own bottles of the Body Lava are already "almost empty."
Here's a clip of what the Body Lava looks like going on, re-posted to the Fenty Beauty Instagram feed with the caption "#WHONEEDSCLOTHES":
If the concept of a Body Lava (how good is that name?) doesn't intrigue you, maybe the Fairy Bomb (again, what a name!) will be more your speed. Judging from the footage on Rihanna's Instagram Stories, the Fairy Bomb is a grapefruit-size puff ball that looks insanely fun to use:
According to Rihanna's own Instagram Stories captions, her recommended method of application is both simple and familiar: "Puff, puff, pass," she writes, as on-brand as ever.
We'll be sure to keep this post updated as soon as additional information on shade range and pricing is made available, but in the meantime, we've set a calendar alert for April 6 — and suggest you do the same if you want to get your hands on Rihanna-approved body shimmer.
UPDATE, Wednesday, March 28, 12:41 p.m.: According to an official release from the brand, the Beach Please collection will include two shades — Brown Sugar, a golden bronze and Who Needs Clothes?, a shell pink — of the Body Lava Luminizer ($59 each), the Kabuki body brush ($34) and the Fairy Bomb Glittering Pom Pom ($42). As with previous Fenty Beauty ranges, it will be available at Sephora, Sephora.com and on FentyBeauty.com.
