On August 1st some serious makeup news hit my Instagram and the internet in general. After years of waiting, Fenty Beauty by Rihanna got a release date of September 8th, 2017 and will be available exclusively at Sephora, Sephora.com, and FentyBeauty.com. When I tell you I stopped everything I was doing to repost this photo I’m not joking with you.
I’m always here for a black lip. I’ve loved it since high school. However, Cover Girl and Maybelline stuck to pinks, reds, mauves, and browns back then so the only black lipstick option was a beauty supply store. But times, as they say, change and now you’re just as likely to spot a black lipstick as you are any other color.
When I began this blog almost 3 years ago there were only a handful of brands that made blue lipstick while everyone else was stuck on pinks and reds. Blue was unconventional. Fast forward to now and brands from Anastasia Beverly Hills to NYX have some version of blue. So whose is the best? And if you’re not wearing blue lipstick, why not?

Watch the video below for my reaction to this lipstick. Continue reading #SwatchWednesdays @Maybelline Bolds Pitch Black→
I’m trying something new today. My goal is to get more makeup on the blog so you, the reader, can see how it looks. That doesn’t require a bunch of words so let me know what you think of #swatchwednesdays. Tweet me @shantafabulous and I’ll be back next week with another lipstick or blush.
