Rihanna has brought these early 2000s beauty products back from the dead


And we’re feeling nostalgic.

Decadent and debauched, scintillating and shimmering, the latest Fenty Beauty products Rihanna’s been teasing are the ultimate Instagram bait. And anyone who came of age in the late 90s and early 2000s will remember renditions of these nostalgia-laden products.

It’s a fact that everything this business-minded maven touches turns to gold – music, fashion and beauty – and now she’s bringing that juju to body glitter. Once upon a time, it was only our enemies we wanted to douse in these tiny twinkling particles, but now RiRi has revived body highlighter and glitter-infused puff. And it has everyone feeling that gravitational pull to don makeup that resembles a disco ball.

Via Instagram, Rihanna introduced us to Body Lava, a creamy body bronzer steeped in glitter. Proudly she’s stated that she’s nearly finished her sample bottle, which is a seal of approval in our books. The second product she debuted on Instagram was Fairy Pom, a retro powder puff topped with a silky bow for dabbing on shimmer.

Sequins are one of the biggest trends this season with eye-catching look translating into one of the biggest beauty trends backstage at the recent Paris Fashion Week. Backstage at Giambattista Valli, make-up artist Val Garland dipped the models in holographic pigments creating the effect of a vivid glitter veil. Or, a Kira-Kira mask if you will. Similarly, for Oscar de la Renta’s autumn-winter 18 show, the models were brushed with MAC sparkling 3-D glitter by Tom Pecheux. In short, forget looking dewy this winter, aim to beam with glitter.

This is Rihanna’s mic drop moment. She’s mastered the foundations market, now she’s moving on and bringing back body shimmer.
