Rihanna has officially launched her highly-anticipated Fenty Beauty cosmetics collection, and not only were fans — her #RihannaNavy — excited to hear that the line will include 40 foundation shades, but fellow celebrities, like Gabourey Sidibe, were just as enthused.

On Saturday, the Empire star publicly expressed her love for Fenty Beauty on Twitter by sharing a selfie with a caption that read, “In case you’re wondering about #FentyBeauty on dark skin, issa YES for me dawg.” The post has since received more than 59,000 likes and more than 200 comments.


Reactions to Sidibe’s endorsement went a little something like this:




Yahoo Beauty reported that Rihanna was passionate about making her range of products inclusive and ensuring that there’s something for everyone. “The Fenty Face was created for women of all skin tones, of all personalities,” she shared in a statement. The Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation has a light, buildable texture that allows you to achieve anywhere from medium to full coverage. Also, one of its coolest qualities is that it has climate-adaptive technology that’s resistant to sweat and humidity — so you won’t look like a ball of shine.
