A kind-hearted husband has become a viral sensation after he left a complimentary review of Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty on behalf of his wife.
The man, named Daryl, wrote a heartwarming review of the Pro Filt’r foundation for his wife Jaenelle, who has struggled with insecurities due to skin pigmentation.
After trying multiple cosmetic brands, Jaenelle finally hit the jackpot with Rihanna’s acclaimed makeup collection, which launched in September 2017 and features 40 different foundation shades for most skin tones.
In his sweet review, Daryl wrote: “My wife has cutaneous lupus erythematosus and we have tried EVERY makeup brand to try to cover up her pigmentation variations and scarring of her skin. NOTHING has worked as well as this Fenty foundation.
“I would like to personally thank Rhianna [sic] with putting out a product that has helped my wife of 16 years regain some of her confidence and helped her with her reluctance to leave our home due to her skin imperfections.”
Daryl continued: “I have attached a picture of her without makeup and one of her & I heading out for our 16th anniversary with Fenty foundation on that she applied herself and was so pleased it was easy to apply.
“I hope this message reaches Rhianna so she knows how much she is helping the love of my life get through the struggle of her affliction.”
In the before picture, Jaenelle’s pigmentation is clearly visible but in the after shot, the brave woman is beaming with confidence having been made-up with Fenty Beauty.
Rihanna is yet to publicly respond to the lovely review but let’s hope it does reach the superstar. The 29-year-old has won rave reviews with Fenty Beauty, which earned a staggering $72m in its first month.
The Silhouette attended BeautyCon London in December and spoke to various beauty bloggers who have tried the products, including Shirley B Eniang who said: “With Rihanna and Fenty Beauty, I think she’s done a fantastic job. It’s made people aware that there needs to be more diversity – even though there have been brands that have been diverse, there is still so much to do and other brands that could improve.
“This is kind of a little nod in that direction for change to take place and include more diversity in a lot of the brands that we do see everyday.”
