Fenty addicts, get ready to get philanthropic: For Rihanna’s latest beauty industry feat, she’s created an irresistible new product for an undeniably good cause ... and she’s made it diamond-themed.


To thrill fans of Fenty’s golden-hued Trophy Wife Killawatt highlighter, Fenty Beauty has created its equally blingy sister, the Diamond Ballout Killawatt. The special edition shade will be released on August 1 with 100 precent of proceeds benefitting the charity Rih created in honor of her grandparents, the Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF). The charity’s logo is also embossed on the multi-use highlighter.

The Clara Lionel Foundation was founded in 2012 and “supports and funds groundbreaking and effective education and emergency response programs around the world,” according to its Instagram profile. The new Killawatt shade is the perfect foil (pun intended) to the brand’s yellow-toned bestseller, and is bound to bring an added layer of glitz to Rihanna’s good works.


Gotta get your hands on it? Unfortunately, these diamonds aren’t forever, so be ready when these gems drop on August 1!

Rihanna is a force. It seems like every other day, one of these makeup companies is coming out with mulit-shade makeup and I know it’s all because Rhi got things started. And if it wasn’t for The Glow Up, I wouldn’t even know that. Plus y’all help me mess with my sisters and mom by hipping them to fashion stuff, lol! They think I have a woman in my life telling me stuff...

Okay, now I just made myself a sad.
