Fenty Beauty is launching their first ever brow products on August 23, and they do not disappoint. Available in 14 colours, the fine-tipped brow pencils are waterproof and long-wearing, but where the usual spoolie would be is a makeup-like paddle brush.
“I really love it,” Fenty Beauty global makeup artist Priscilla Ono exclusively tells us of the first-to-market tool. “It really brushes and combs the hairs well. It separates the hair and it’s a great blender too.”
“It’s a game changer for a brush,” adds Ono. “You’re probably going to see some copy cats after [it launches] because it’s so good.”

As always with Fenty Beauty, the shade selection is excellent. “[Rihanna] is very conscious of making sure that everybody’s included – it’s something that’s really big for her. Not just for skin tone, but also for hair colour.”
A priority for Rihanna was finding a colour to suit redheads which was her “number one concern” Ono tells us. “That was such a big thing because she felt like there’s so many different [shades of] redheads and they never have that perfect match.” To wit, there are four different auburn pencils in warmer and cooler undertones.

Ono used the Brow MVP, as well as the new Fenty Beauty Hydrating Foundation and Primer for a beauty editorial in our October issue. Get your first peek below, and pick up the October issue on newsstands September 9 to see the rest.
