Rihanna showed up to the iHeartRadio Awards in green lipstick. And I mean green.
And here’s why all us beauty-writer types took note: Back in the fall Dolce & Gabbana came out with a green lipstick that basically made everyone’s head explode. Green? Who would wear green lipstick? No one. But then It’s Dolce & Gabbana, we cried!* The pigment is terrific, and the color is interesting—will anyone ever actually wear it for a big event in a normal setting?*
Well, flash forward to last night, and the celebrity brave enough to do it was Rihanna. The color was applied by makeup artist Mylah Morales, who hasn’t released the name of the shade. But from the metallic finish, I’m not convinced it’s actually the D&G shade that started it all. Looks like it might be a combination of MAC LipMixes (Rihanna’s got a history with the company and lipstick, after all), or it could another brand she’s worn before, Melt, which is actually sold out in its green shade, Blow.
Regardless of what specific color she wore, she wore it, and with a bantu knots in her hair and a high-neck dress—unexpected partners. Think she pulled it off?
