Give Your Body the Glow It Deserves

When Rihanna teased Fenty Beauty’s Body Lava, almost everyone wanted to place an order ASAP. It became so popular that it eventually sold out. Although it received some criticism for how it transferred everywhere, it’s no secret that it really made the skin glow. “When I would always go to the Caribbean—I mean, home or Barbados, where I’m from—and every single time I would make body glitter makeup with oil and eyeshadows that I crushed up,” Rihanna said in a makeup tutorial for Vogue.

If you”re bummed out about not being able to cop the body luminizer, don’t fret! There are still more out there that you can use to have a sun-kissed glow minus the UV rays. You can also choose from natural to all-out shimmer that’s perfect for both the beach and the city.
