Fenty lovers, I hope you saved a little room (and budget) for post-Christmas shopping, because Rihanna is once again coming for your coins!


Fenty Beauty announced last week that it would be dropping not one, not two, but 10 new shades of its Mattesmoiselle lipstick on December 26, just in time for you to pick a shade to go with your New Year’s Eve outfit.

The new shades are (from left to right, above): Pumpkin Rose (Rich Marigold); Thicc (Sultry Mauve); Tiger Tini (Exotic Orange); Dragon Mami (Tropical Papaya); Ballerina Blackout (Loud Bubblegum); Flamingo Acid (Bright Berry); Violet Fury (Vivid Violet); Turks and Caicos (Deep Teal); F’n Black (Navy Black); and I Quit (True Mink).

If these colors look familiar, it’s because they were first released as a 10-piece limited-edition collector’s vault in late November. We admittedly side-eyed the idea of being forced to buy all the shades, because we’d inevitably end up with a few we’d never wear, effectively making it a very fashionable waste of money. But thankfully, Fenty’s now making these hues available for single sale, so we can pick, choose, mix and match at will.

For instance: We know “Living Coral” has been declared 2019's color of the year, but the gorgeous raspberry hue of this “Flamingo Acid” Mattesmoiselle looks infinitely more wearable.


Or the teal of “Turks and Caicos,” which not only has us craving warmer weather, but is a softer, sexier alternative to more basic blues and greens.


Fenty claims that “Thicc” looks good on everyone. We’re definitely with the thickness, but will have to see for ourselves if this dusty pink is indeed universally flattering.


You can see Fenty founder Rihanna modeling a few of these new shades on Fenty’s IG, and if you’re in the market for fresh kisses for 2019, they’ve got you covered.

The new Mattesmoiselles drop on December 26 on Fenty’s website, Sephora, Harvey Nichols in the UK, and Sephora in JCPenney.
