Fenty Beauty is finally coming to Boots (Picture: Fenty Beauty)Any announcement to do with Fenty Beauty causes ripples of excitement, but this one might be the most thrilling.
Finally, Fenty Beauty is coming to Boots beauty counters.
That’s right, pals. No longer shall you need to schlep to Harvey Nichols to get your Fenty fix. From 10 May, Fenty Beauty products will available from large Boots stores.
The news was announced by Rihanna herself, on her Instagram. She also said she loves her ‘UK fans’ which we are of course taking as a personal shout-out and proclamation of adoration (especially as we work near a Boots. Coincidence? We think not).
Rihanna wrote: ‘@fentybeauty is officially taking over the UK! I’m here to announce our brand new partnership with @BootsUK !! Look out for us at locations from MAY 10th !! I’m so excited, I love Boots and I love my UK fans!!! Get ready for #FENTYBEAUTYxBOOTS.’
That’s not the only exciting Fenty news to come today, mind you.
We’ve also seen the launch of a bunch of new products, including a lip scrub and a lip balm.
These are the first products from Fenty that count as skincare, not makeup, which could signal the launch of Fenty Skin is imminent.
The lip balm, called the Pro Kiss’r Luscious Lip Balm, is made with shea and mango butters and offers a subtle gloss. The Pro Kiss’r Lip-Loving Scrubstick is – as the name suggests – a scrub in a stick form, made with apricot seeds that gently exfoliate the lips.
Fenty Beauty announced the news on Instagram, writing: ‘We’re about to turn you into a #PROKISSR! Get ready for the ultimate lip prep’.
The idea is that you use the products to prep your lips and make them plump, smooth, and moisturised so they’re the perfect base for Fenty lip colour, whether you opt for a Stunna lip paint or a matte lipstick.

We're about to turn you into a #PROKISSR! Get ready for the ultimate lip prep with #PROKISSRSCRUB – a fuss-free scrub packed with apricot seeds to easily exfoliate lips, and #PROKISSRBALM – a balm made with shea and mango butters to make your lips softer for the perfect lipstick pout! Available on MAY 10 at fentybeauty.com, @sephora, @harveynichols, and #SephorainJCP.
Also launching on 10 May is the Getting Hotter collection, just in time for summer.
Getting Hotter introduces seven new super-pigmented lipsticks, called Poutsicles, with classic Fenty names including Purpsicle, Sun Snatched, Alpha Doll, Go Deep, Tropic Tantrum, Motorboat, and Hot Blooded.
The colours are all pretty punchy, ranging from light blue to bubblegum pink, and all have a satin finish.
The collection also includes three eyeliner trios; Baewatch, Baeside, and Baecay (we’re sensing a theme), which Rihanna has been sneakily wearing for a few weeks.
The liners are liquid, super bright, and have an extra fine precision brush so you can create a cat eye sharp enough to kill.
With all of this launching and Fenty’s arrival in Boots, we fully anticipate handing all our money over to Rihanna in the next few days. Damn it.
At least we’ll look glorious while we live on lentils for the rest of summer.
