Stunna Lip Paint in Uninvited, £19, Fenty Beauty
Everything Fenty Beauty releases arrives with a much-deserved air of excitement. First, it was the inclusive shade range and *that* gold highlighter that set the beauty world alight. Then, it was the Stunna red lip that proved universally flattering and endlessly enduring on the lips. The latest Fenty frenzy has been around the four new shades of Stunna Lip Paint, and most notably, a jet black hue that looks unapologetically badass (as well as arriving just in time for Halloween makeup).

I’ve only recently begun to embrace lipstick (it took me an entire ten years to shake off the whole concealed lip look of the 00s) and even then, I’m very much a ‘pretty in pink’ type of woman. If I’m feeling particularly ballsy, I’ll go for a matte red. So, to say that black lipstick is *so* not my vibe would be an understatement. Nonetheless, in Fenty Beauty we trust…
Just like the entire Fenty Beauty range, the packaging is perfection. Considered, well-crafted but chiefly functional; the tapered, matte black handle is long enough to give a good grip and the applicator wand is hollowed slightly at the tip to hold more product – no double-dipping here! Alongside the practicalities, the packaging looks cool and it’s even glow in the dark (why, I don’t know, but I’m into it).
