Almost a month has passed since Rihanna’s fiery Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show performance, but one aspect of the show is still on everyone’s lips (literally). The pop star debuted the first look of her new Fenty Beauty product with her fire-engine red lip, and everyone’s been recreating it after getting their hands on the best-selling product.

TikTokers and respected beauty influencers can’t stop raving about the new Fenty Beauty Fenty Icon Velvet Liquid Lipstick in the shade “The MVP,” with many agreeing that it may be the reddest red ever — and lives up to this title on all complexions.

After RiRi’s halftime performance, Fenty Beauty’s Global Makeup Artist Priscilla Ono shared in a press release that Rihanna rocked the bold color because the stage “called for the ultimate Rihanna red lip.”

“We wanted her beauty look to celebrate this moment and be a true reflection of her timeless beauty,” she continued. “And to me, there’s nothing more iconic to Rihanna than her soft matte skin and a bold red lip.”

This bold, true red velvet liquid lipstick feels like a mousse, according to tons of TikTokers’ reviews, and applies beautifully across both the top and bottom lips with just one swipe.

After noticing the hype, well-known veteran beauty guru Alissa Ashley reviewed the Fenty Beauty Fenty Icon Velvet Liquid Lipstick in “The MVP” on TikTok. Halfway through her application, she paused to share her thoughts.

“I do feel like some of the reactions on TikTok are a little dramatic, but I get it. I get it with this one,” she said after applying “The MVP” to just her bottom lip. “I get it so bad. I do.”

Beauty influencer Nyma Tang also showed how gorgeous the bold red lip color looks on a deeper, richer complexion.

“You’ve got to be kidding me,” she said after applying just one swipe. “This is gorgeous. It’s like mousse. The coverage is insane [and I’ve] never seen my teeth this white. This is gorgeous.”
