A Fenty affair

Did you know that I share a birthday with Rihanna? Yes, I share a birthday with the island gyal queen of hip hop pop R&B til you drop bad gal Riri. We are both pisces, creatively cultivating our way through this crazy cosmos shedding and sharing light as musically and musefully as possible. Hollaaaa'

Birthday bashes aside and plenty of cake cake cake later... I truly do love Rihanna. Not only for her music, undeniable talent and performance skills - but for her adamance and ambition to grow, glow and go beyond the music.

Unless you have been living on a rock, or more fittingly, an island, you will be more than privvy to the fact that Miss Robyn Fenty has her own makeup, skincare and lingerie line. She's expanded her talents and birthed a new incentive: to channel and challenge beauty.

Her latest products from the Fenty Beauty line do no less than what they promise, and at LAITMYLK, we are here and privileged to run through them with you. It's nearly summer, should London decide to stop having sporadic torrential typhoon like episodes and hidden rainbows... which translates to us all needing some lotion to make us glow, some gloss to make us boss, and some shimmer to make everything glimmer. Let's go!

The blur is real. Rihanna wanted to create a light coverage, easy-to-apply, flexible skin tint that instantly evens out your complexion and give a flattering blurred effect, which is ideal for the summer season when you don't want to be wearing heavy set makeup. Eaze Drop, with hydrating QuickBlur complex, is perfect for a no-makeup makeup look, or for when you want to look effortlessly put together. In 25 adaptable shade options for all, everyone can experience the blurring effects of natural and dewy skin that is comfortably covered and flawless.
