I have never met Rihanna. And I probably never will. Sadly, neither will you. Sorry.
But somehow, she knew what I needed before I knew myself.
She looked into my soul and saw that I, a self-confessed makeup tragic with freckles and average cheekbones, was deeply intimidated by the whole contouring thing and needed an easy solution.
Hence, she created the Fenty Beauty Match Stix Trio, just for me. Or so I like to think, because it’s hard to imagine how a makeup kit could be so spot on for my skin tone and not have been custom created for me.
Now, people legitimately ran through the streets when the singer’s brand, Fenty Beauty magically appeared in Australian Sephora stores in September. Above all else – the cool packaging, the highlighters made from, presumably, unicorn dust, and RIHANNA – women everywhere raved about the range’s inclusivity.
Everyone can wear Fenty Beauty. Yes, even us, who are a bit crap at makeup.
The brand describes the Match Stix Trio as ‘a magnetised trio of long wear, light-as-air makeup sticks curated by skin tone with two Match Stix Matte Skinsticks to conceal and contour and one Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick to highlight’.
