Rihanna’s beauty brand Fenty Beauty announced that it would be releasing its Killawatt Highlighter in a special-edition diamond shade to benefit charity on Aug. 1.
The silver shade will be called Diamond Ball Out, and 100 percent of all the sales will go to support the pop star’s charity, the Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF), which she founded to honor her grandparents Clara and Lionel Braithwaite in 2012. The focus of the charitable initiative is to help fund education, health and emergency response programs around the world, according to the foundation’s website.
The charity’s logo is embossed on the multiuse highlighter. “Layer up for a blinged glow on the eyes or sheer it out for a nice shimmer on the cheeks,” are the instructions written under the video post previewing the makeup.
For the past three years, Rihanna has hosted an annual Diamond Ball, where she gets her closest celebrity friends together in an effort to raise money for CLF programs, including the Clara Lionel Foundation Global Scholarship Program, the Clara Braithwaite Center for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Barbados and the Barbados Micro Grants Program.
