I tried Rihanna's 'Fenty Face' make-up look and I loved it

A great evening was dedicated to the singer and many of her creations on 7 September, in full New York Fashion Week. "I can't wait for you guys to see what I've been working on and I am super-excited about it", Rihanna said in the video. "I'm conservative when it comes to exfoliating because my skin is really sensitive and I don't want to do too much damage when it comes to that, or any damage at all".

The groundbreakingly inclusive range includes 40 (!) foundation shades, mattifying powder, blotting papers, primer, brushes, a sponge, a universally flattering lip gloss, a wide selection of contour sticks and a host of glittery highlighters in inventive (and exquisitely named) shades that will have you literally shining bright like a diamond. In the photo, the Bajan beauty promotes her new Fenty Beauty make-up line by using the Unicorn shade to color a heart on her face.

"You want people to appreciate the product and not go 'oh, that's cute, but it only looks good on her'".

The Fenty Beauty Match Stix serve three different purposes: to hide, contour and highlight.

In celebration of @badgalriri's sixth cover (and the global launch of @fentybeauty by Rihanna), ELLE turned the tables and invited some of her famous friends and fans-Tyra Banks, Eminem, April Bloomfield, Zac Posen, Pharrell Williams and more-to share the questions they were dying to ask the global megastar. I'm a firm believer that you can't have a complete face without a lip, and this is a universal lip gloss.

There's definitely something for everyone, or rather every skin tone on the planet from Fenty Beauty.

Fenty Beauty is made by Kendo Brands, Sephora's indie label that also houses cult brand names like Kat Von D, Marc Jacobs Beauty and now, Fenty Beauty.

Rihanna's got beauty on the brain.

Details of the range had been under lock and key, and those lucky enough to get a sneak-peek had to sign a strict non-disclosure agreement agreeing to not post anything online until after the 9am embargo.

Yep, RiRi is right this second hosting a schmancy, celeb-studded launch party in NYC so, while the attractive people are busy celebrating (and, later, sleeping off the champagne hangover) we're on our little island continent buying up big at exclusive stockist Sephora Australia.

Fenty Beauty is available now.
