When I found out that Rihanna was releasing a makeup line, like most of you, I freaked the f*ck out. For starters, I'm a huge fan of her music. Secondly, I was so damn proud that a black woman had created products that represent the various, beautiful shades of brown skin. I'm also slightly biased because of my Caribbean heritage. So naturally, Rihanna is my Bajan sister in my head. But the bottom line is: I needed to get Fenty everything on my face ASAP.
Among the buzziest items from the collection are the highlighters — Trophy Wife being, arguably, the most popular one (so far). The highlighter has graced the cheekbones of influencers, bloggers, and even babies since its reveal. I've tried it out myself (you can see what it looks like here).
To call the powder "extra" is an understatement. It literally goes on like pure gold dust. But to be perfectly honest, Trophy Wife didn't scream "everyday highlighter" to me. Instead, it felt more like a collector's item that I can pull out for extraspecial occasions. But even though it wasn't my highlighter of choice, I was still able to find five illuminating products from the line that made my cheekbones pop and were suitable for everyday wear.
Ahead you can see what five different Fenty Beauty highlighters look like on my complexion, along with a review of each one. Trophy Wife may be the star of the show, but these are deserving of trophies, too.
