Are We Seeing A Fenty Backlash?

Are We Seeing A Fenty Backlash?

For a long time, it seemed like Rihanna could do no wrong. But now, the Bajan singer turned beauty mogul may have a backlash on her hands. Could that Rihanna reign finally be stopping?

The trailblazing Fenty Beauty won over millions of fans for its authentic diversity and commitment to providing cosmetics for a wide range of women. With its diverse range of models and snappy social media presence - almost seeming like an extension of Rihanna's personality - Fenty Beauty was on top.

Now it seems some would-be fans might be turned against the brand.

It all started with Fenty Body Lava and the not-so-inclusive price.

But despite a number of more reasonably-priced alternatives, the Rihanna connection holds a certain cachet.

So a number of people decided to buy the luminizer, priced at $59 a bottle, or $135 as part of the 'Beach, Please' summer 'essentials' pack.

Not everyone was impressed with the latest Fenty offering. In a recent video, superstar beauty blogger Jackie Aina admitted that she had heard "mixed reviews" about some of the latest Fenty Beauty products.

"This looks more like a dry oil with glitter in it, more than it does a body illuminizer," Jackie said. She added that it was 'pretty oily' and seemed to heat up as it was blended out. "The more I add, the more stickiness I feel," the YouTuber added.

Many people took to Twitter to voice their opinions of the product.

A lot of people complained that it was sticky. Others also said it made them look sweaty.

One person had a lot to say about the product, and questioned Fenty Beauty altogether.
