Grab your tissues.
Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty line has been praised for catering to a wide range of skin tones since it launched last year, and now one man is highlighting just what the makeup line has meant for his wife.
The man, Daryl, posted a review on Fenty Beauty’s website about Pro Filt’r Soft Matte foundation, a foundation collection that has 40 shades and is inclusive for every type of skin.
In the 5-star review titled “Personal thank you to Rihanna”, Daryl wrote about his wife Jeannelle’s experience with the product. “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.”
Lupus is a systemic autoimmune disease where the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues and organs, which can affect joints, blood cells, organs and skin, according to the Mayo Clinic. Though every case of lupus is different, a common side effect is skin lesions.
He continued, “I would like to personally thank Rihanna 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…. I hope this message reaches Rihanna so she knows how much she is helping the love of my life get through the struggle of her affliction.”
Just excuse us for a second, we have something in our eye…
Daryl also attached two photos of him and his wife on their 16th anniversary, just in case you weren’t already tearing up from his words.
We’re not the only ones who think this review is super adorable — it has gone on to earn nearly 500 votes on the website.
Thank you, Rihanna, for making Fenty Beauty be so inclusive!
