FENTY Beauty Is About To Top Christmas Lists With Their Release Of The Galaxy Collection

A few weeks ago, FAULT attended the London launch of Fenty Beauty and from seeing the collection up-close, we have hopped on the hype train. Today, we’ve received information that Fenty Beauty’s holiday collection will be releasing THIS FRIDAY and we can barely contain our excitement.

Entitled ‘The Galaxy Collection’, you’ll truly look out of this world in their glitter-drenched assortments of lipsticks, glosses, eyeliner, eyeshadows! In Rihanna’s own words, the songstress turned business tycoon wanted the collection to be “glitter on glitter on glitter” and as a fully fledged “female boss” what Rihanna wants, Rihanna gets.

Fenty Beauty has already cut a swath through the exclusive beauty industry with the inclusive message of her line of Fenty foundations in over fifty shade. We have no doubt that the new Galaxy collection will be another top seller and it’s most certainly on the top of our Christmas list this year!



FAULT Magazine Attends Fenty Beauty Launch Party

Last night we attended the official launch party of Fenty Beauty by Rihanna in London’s Knightsbridge. The night also marked the end of London Fashion Week, and much like New York, Rihanna was going to make sure that it went out with a bang!

It being Rihanna, this wasn’t your standard fashion week party, we weren’t oversold through lavish theatrics, Rihanna let the product speak for itself, so guests were encouraged to be colour matched for their Fenty shade and shown the best additional products available.

The night was also host to many VIPs who came to show their support, FAULT Issue 24 stars Maya Jama and Becca Dudley were in attendance alongside the inspirational fashion legend, Edward Enninful – and of course, Rihanna herself was there to celebrate too.

Whether you work in the beauty industry or not, it’s hard to ignore the impact Fenty has already had worldwide. Fans have queued overnight to get their hands on the collection with the 5-star reviews pouring in non-stop and it’s not just because Rihanna’s name is tied to the product. Fenty has already found its niche in the beauty market, and while it is sad it took so long for a brand to claim it, their niche is being a product for everybody regardless of skin tone and people are loving and commending them for it.

Regardless of your skin tone, you can find a product for you at Fenty and Rihanna herself has said that she wanted the collection to be “something enjoyed by all people” and from last night’s event, it’s clear that people are listening and getting behind Fenty. I spoke to the musician, Melissa Whiskey who explained just how much Fenty means to her –  “I’ve struggled in the past to find a foundation to match my skin tone because I’m not the lightest skinned person, so I love that Rihanna has released a collection like this”.

All in all, the evening was the perfect close to London Fashion Week SS18, we laughed, we danced and most importantly, we had something worthwhile to celebrate! Despite this only being the launch party, Fenty has already ascended beyond just the role of makeup – truly Fenty is a movement and one which will no doubt have a bright future.

Day three brought a whole lot of liner, Parisian street tans and freckles. Pretty, sprayed on freckles.


The coolest beauty, hair and tan combo came at David Koma. Make-up was all highlighted cheeks with the slickest, straightest tram track liner in town. Sharon Dowsett aka MUA supremo was heading up Team Maybelline, to create this eye opener. Love. It was done using Maybelline Master Precise eyeliner and some masking tape, to ensure both lines were sharp. Hair was pulled back into sectioned sports luxe waves courtesy of Nick Irwin using Catwalk by Tigi. The hero lock product here? Catwalk by Tigi Bodylifting Spray, soaked in at the roots and sides, then dragged through the rest. And finally, the tan, a Parisian glow to go with London edge, was spritzed on by bronzers Nichola Joss and Jules Heptonstall. Street style tan? Done.

Over at Preen by Thornton Bragazzi it was all about freckles, lots of splattered on freckles. Thinking all things beachy, St Tropez Self Tan Dark Mousse was pumped into little pots, then a large round paint brush was used to splatter on the colour over a lighter instant tan, also by St Tropez. The result? A summery smattering of DIY freckles. These were complimented by Val Garland’s drawn on freckles on the face and just-been-to-the-gym-cheeks. Tresses were swept into a wet look up front and into a crimped bun round the back.


And all things beauty limbered up to look pretty sporty at Richard Nicholl. The muse for both hair and make-up was late 90s Kate Moss aka the Johnny Depp years. Sharon Dowsett and her Maybelline team – yep they’ve been busy – used lots of mascara and khol liner, applied like a school girl, to create naughty, sporty eyes.
Clarisonic were on hand doing 60 seconds facials on the models using the infamous cleansing brush and Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser, so that skin would look super fresh with only minimal concealer required. A Nike tick shape of peachy sheen was also used on the cheekbones, which looked so beautiful and fresh. Hair-wise, locks had an athletic/Kate feel, with John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Hairspray and Liquid Shine used to pull the top back and keep the ends all kinds of textured. Oh and we couldn’t leave out the nails. Done by top nail pro Michelle Humphrey using Maybelline New York shades, she worked Green With Envy and Tutti Frutti into a transparent glaze for a washed out 90s nod. The green hue was also a high five to the Tinkerbell inspo also weaved into Nicholl’s show. Grown up pastels are so here for the new season.
