By now, you must have heard that Fenty Beauty by Rihanna is launching officially in select African countries on May 27, 2022. But if you haven’t, well, you heard it here first: Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin will now be available in Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Namibia, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Of course, you’ve been buying all your favourite Fenty Beauty products from your preferred stockist or on trips to the countries where it was available. But now, getting your hands on one would be as easy as walking into the nearest beauty stores where they are sold; that is, if you live in any one of the countries mentioned above.
While we wait for May 27, here are some of the Fenty Beauty and Skin products we are almost certain you would be splurging on. And, if they are not on your must-buy list, you should add them ASAP
Pro Filt’r Hydrating Longwear Foundation
The foundation of anything is the most important part of that thing, if we’re being literal. So, just like in buildings, beauty needs a really durable, long-lasting foundation that not only blends seamlessly with the skin but also acts as the perfect base for all other products.
This is exactly what the Fenty Pro Filt’r Hydrating Longwear Foundation is.
Praised for its lightweight yet full coverage, this foundation lives up to its name: according to the reviews, it will last you all day!
Now, who does not love makeup they don’t need to make a mad dash to the bathroom to touch up on every other hour?
If powders are more your thing, then look out for the Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Powder Foundation.
Kilawatt Freestyle Highlighter
Whether you prefer the Duos or the single shades, the Freestyle Highlighter has been touted as a highly pigmented affair that delivers the right amount of glow all day.
Would you rather go with a liquid highlighter? Trust Fenty Beauty to have exactly what you need: the Liquid Killawatt Fluid Freestyle Highlighter comes in 5 shades that are perfect for people of colour.
Full Frontal Volume Mascara
Apparently, the beauty industry’s best open secret to fuller, longer-looking eyelashes is to use a fatter, thicker brush first, then go in with thinner, smaller bristles.
Thankfully, with the Full Frontal Volume, Lift and Curl Mascara, you don’t have to look for two different products to achieve this look. The ‘double-edged’ wand of this product comes with both bristle types to make your application easier, smoother and faster.
Fenty Eau de Parfum
When this perfume dropped last year, we had asked you if you wanted to smell like Rihanna, aka smell like a self-accomplished billionaire.
You might get a chance to do so once Fenty Beauty officially launches on the continent. With notes of magnolia, musk, tangerine, blueberry, Bulgarian rose, and patchouli, you would not only smell like money, you would smell like good money.
Listen, none of the highlight nor foundation and all the other beauty products will sit right on your face if it is not clean and well taken care of. That is why the Whipped Clay Detox Face Mask, complete with salicylic acid and charcoal, is a necessary addition to your beauty cabinet.
This fragrance-free whipped clay mask promises to visibly tighten your pores, refine your skin’s texture and reduce excess oil without drying out your skin.
A miracle if you ask us, and one that we’re certain you’re itching to experience come May 27.
