How will you GLOW this SS2019? My review of the new FENTY BEAUTY BODY LAVA in Trophy Wife

Who ran out and got Trophy Wife when it dropped with the release of the FENTY Beauty line? I know when I saw it, I immediately knew it would be a staple in my collection! It was a beautiful gold that would work as a highlighter and eye shimmer.

Fast forward to today, I still use it but for mainly adding shimmer to my inner corners of my eyes and a light dusting on the high points of my cheeks. I say light dusting because I think soon after purchasing, many of us soon discovered that a light hand worked best with this shade. That is, unless you wanted to blind people whenever the light hit your face haha! If you’re that person, keep on glowing! Nonetheless, we love this shade!

Anyways, yesterday Rihanna announced that she would be dropping a body lava in the shade Trophy Wife. Since I have the shade Brown Sugar and LOVE IT, I knew I had to try this new shade. I made my way to my local Sephora and picked it up. Got home and immediately tried it on and I have to say that I LOVE IT!

I know there were claims that its too sticky or it transfers but I honestly haven’t experienced any of that. It may be because of my application methods. In my opinion, all you need is a small amount to get a good glow. Im all about having a natural glow, so I only use a small drop and spread it with a flat top brush. I feel that this gives me good coverage and hinders the product from feeling sticky on my skin. So in my opinion, it does not have that sticky feeling!

As far as how well it shows up on different skin tones, I can only speak for the brownies out their but I can say it looks amazing! I think it gives a nice natural glow that we all want for the summer. I can imagine it’ll look great on EVERYONE though since we know that Rihanna’s goal is to create something that ALL BEAUTIES can wear (thanks RiRi).

Should you get it?

In my opinion, I think its a great buy if you are a fan of FENTY BEAUTY and definitely want to glow this spring and summer! You can definitely create a dupe of it that will work well but I believe this is great to add to your collection of FENTY products!

Oh! I almost forgot about the smell! One word: DIVINE!!

So, how far will you glow this spring and summer?! And which one will you be picking up? Remember, they’ll only be here for a limited time so if you want to get one or two, don’t take too long to decide!
