Rihanna is making body glitter great again

RihannaLooking at Rihanna isn’t exactly like staring at the sun, but there are similarities. Both leave you blinking, and it turns out, both get their glow from molten fire. The suns are carbon-based; the other comes from Rihanna’s own hands, in the form of two new body glitters that she’s developed for Fenty. And while the words body glitter might plunge you into vivid memories of raspberry-scented, roll-on body glitter, from the shots Rihanna posted on social media last night—and the glow she always emanates—we’re in for a body glitter revival, this time 1,000 percent more sophisticated.

Fenty’s glitters are coming in two forms: Body Lava, a shimmer-packed liquid highlighter, and Fairy Bomb, a powder puff packed with shimmer inside. In trademark does-what-she-wants fashion, it looks like Rihanna shot Instagram Story footage and then posted it to the Fenty feed, breaking from the usual beauty brand M.O. of stylized shots and lengthy hype-ups. Rihanna hands us products straight up and tells us we’re going to love it, and it’s so good that we usually don’t have a choice. From the photos, that looks like it’ll be the case with the glitters.

#BODYLAVA 👀👀 APRIL 6th, get ready! #rihgram @badgalriri

Going by the Fenty account, it looks like the Body Lava will come in two shades. Who Needs Clothes is a champagne flecked with gold glitter—basically like the line’s Gloss Bomb lip gloss for your skin but with the peach toned down. Accompanying it is Brown Sugar, a luminous, medium-deep golden bronze. Rihanna demonstrated the Lava’s consistency on Instagram, blending two pumps of Who Needs Clothes into her skin with a kabuki brush. It melts in and leaves behind a shimmering finish that’s both subtle, since the pigments are so finely milled, and noticeable because it makes her skin look damn gorgeous. Given her years orchestrating onstage theatrics—throwback to her Grammy’s number—Rihanna clearly knows glow.

The second body glitter is less subtle, which is to say it’s a full-on ball of shimmer. Logistics on how to use the puff are unclear, like how much glitter it deposits, how you refill it, and how much we’re going to have to pay for a powder puff full of glitter (also unclear, though: how to resist). One thing we do know? “#Dusted” is about to become an #aesthetic.

Pricing and more details are still to come on the shimmers (and the purple kabuki brush that Rihanna uses in the video), but they’ll be launching at Sephora on April 6, so mark your calendar for next Friday if you’re here for the aughts riding again.
