Six girls see how “universal” the Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer from Rihanna’s new makeup line, Fenty Beauty, really is.
Lucia Bermudez, Co-Editor-in-Chief
“I thought the gloss was great. It’s simple yet versatile, and feels great on the skin. It has the perfect amount of shine and the shade is pigmented beautifully and just enough to give a natural yet sleek look. I would definitely incorporate this gloss into my daily routine.”
Jurnee Louder, News Editor
“I do want to love everything Rihanna does and while I do think the gloss was good, I don’t know if it is the end-all-be-all for lip glosses. First off, I am a fan of the shade; however, I do wish it was a bit more visible to the eye. I’m also not a huge fan of the scent because it reminds me too much of children’s lip gloss and I would’ve preferred something a bit less fragrant. But, I do think the gloss is very flattering on people of varying skin complexions. As someone who buys makeup as a pastime, I don’t regret the purchase and supporting Rihanna and her diverse makeup line never hurt.”

“I’m such a fan of anything Rihanna does, and so I couldn’t wait to try Fenty Beauty. I thought this shade looked really nice and minimal, and I liked that it was shiny but not sparkly. It was pretty neutral-toned though, which isn’t really my thing but it was still pretty flattering. The formula was the perfect texture — smooth but not sticky. Overall, it’s a really cute addition over bare lips for a no-makeup-makeup look, and would probably look really bomb over any other lipstick. At $18, it’s not exactly cheap, but if you’re a makeup lover, it’s definitely worth it.”

“The lip gloss was surprisingly nice. It was a mild color with a subtle shine and it was moisturizing without leaving a watery coating, making it suitable for most occasions. I would for sure wear it again.”
Emma Ramsay, Variety Staffer
“I really liked the lip gloss, especially the color of it. It lasted a few hours which is pretty good considering it is lip gloss. My only complaint would be that the texture is a little weird to me. Other than that, I think it is a great product.”
Dalace Thomas, Viewpoints Staffer
“I really liked the product. The packaging was really nice and the consistency of the gloss was smooth and easy to apply. I don’t know if I would have paid $18 for it, but I definitely liked the overall look and feel of the product.”
