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.

FAULT Magazine Weekly Playlist – XYLØ

xylo

Los Angeles Brother/sister duo XYLØ first captured our attention this summer with the decidedly dreampop single “Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea,” with singer Paige’s meandering vocals backed by lush synths and piano chords. Their music is dark yet hopeful, simultaneously capturing all of our ambitions and regrets. We asked Chase and Paige to put together some of their favorite songs and the result is a mix of classic tunes (Bruce Springsteen) and a few more recent hits (Rihanna and Selena Gomez), proving that their musical tastes are as diverse and richly layered as their own productions.

CHASE 

Bruce Springsteen – I’m on Fire

“This is soundtrack for a warm summer night drive, it has this tension and sexiness. He has such a commanding presence to his vocals (almost has me convinced I should have sex with him). I love the atmosphere the synthesizer adds, it almost doesn’t fit, wait…it totally fits. Brilliant.”

Lana Del Rey – Young and Beautiful
“I love the song writing, it’s so somber. She’s so vulnerable, it’s almost pathetic, but it’s ok because her voice is so darn cute. Lovely strings as well.”

Rihanna – Bitch Better Have My Money
“This is a great song to listen to while sitting in LA traffic to help distract you from the living hell your experiencing. Trust me.”

PAIGE

Disclosure – Magnets ft. Lorde
“I love the lyrics and the picture they paint….’smoke and Sunset off Mulholland…’
I would listen to this as I’m putting on my make-up for a night out. #amiriteladies !?”

Selena Gomez – Same Old Love
“This is a laid back tune, yet it has a really sassy vibe to it. Which is a common trait of our music. It’s a signature Charli XCX melody performed by a sultry Selena.”

The Smiths – There Is A Light And It Never Goes Out
“Personally , I believe that this is one of the best love songs ever written. A hopeful song for a hopeless soul. The pleasure, the privilege is mine…”

Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney release acoustic ballad

B8J7XMxCIAADoDZ

 

For a moment, let’s pretend it’s the year 2005. A young Rihanna releases catchy ‘Pon De Replay’ and it would be twos years before this “good girl went bad”, nonetheless baby steps towards her 7 Grammys had been made.

Kanye West‘s “Late Registration’ is being hailed as a masterpiece album as ‘Gold Digger ft Jamie Foxx’ topped music charts world-wide.

Paul McCartney had just released his 13th solo album ‘Chaos and Creation in the Backyard’ and remained in the US album charts for over 10 weeks.

Fast forward ten years and the three aforementioned music artists have teamed up and released a collaboration single entitled ‘Four Five Seconds‘.  Kanye previewed the single at the IHeartRadio Summit event in LA on thursday straight off his laptop.

The song has a stripped back arrangement with Rihanna and Kanye providing vocals over Paul McCartney’s single guitar part. This is the first music we’ve heard from Rihanna in over a year and many are happy to hear more ballads from the singer. ‘Stay’ was a massive hit and all but proved Rihanna doesn’t have to belt out an 8 octave manifest to prove her voice is special.

While the singing is a far cry from Kanye of 05, has he ever been known to stay in one lane with his music? Kanye has always made it clear that his main focus is to be an innovator and a visionary in the music business.  Whether you think it works or it doesn’t, Kanye will continue to journey on; in the end we’re just along for the ride.

Have a listen and let us know what you think on Twitter!

“FourFiveSeconds” is downloadable from iTunes now.
