Rihanna Absolutely Loses It Over A Fenty Beauty Challenge
Over the course of lockdown, bad gal RiRi has kept fairly quiet about her private life on social media. In lieu of Fenty-clad poolside snaps in Barbados, the mogul has instead been posting galvanising updates on the Black Lives Matter movement, and the many ways you can help in the fight for systemic change.
There was her typically no-nonsense call to vote (“VOTE. Ya ain’t got shit else to do man! Get yo ass off the couch and go vote!!! I don’t wanna hear another excuse!!”); her celebratory Juneteenth post including a nod to Ghetto Gastro; and repeated, vital calls to arrest the police officers who shot Breonna Taylor in her own home on 13 March.
Now, however, she’s sharing some more light-hearted content – showing her take on a Fenty Beauty challenge that’s gone viral over the last few days.
At home with the Fenty Corporation’s senior vice president (and her long-term friend) Jennifer Gonzalez, British Vogue’s May 2020 cover star tries (and fails) to say Slip Shine Lipstick five times in a row.
In addition to having a tongue-twister of a name, the brand’s newest product (full tongue-twisting title: Slip Shine Sheer Shiny Lipstick) already has a cult following thanks to its “perfect for day or play, low-key sexy” formula. (Who but Rihanna could get away with that product description?)
“This @fentybeauty #SlipShineLipstickChallenge is a kiiiiii!!!” Rihanna captioned the post. “Ugh! By the 3rd time, it turns into all kinds of Ship Slime-Shit Shine madness! How many times y’all could say #SlipShineLipstick in a row? Cause me and @jennnrosales clearly suck!!!” At least now you know what you’re going to do today.
