The Fenty Beauty Body Lava Dupe Will Save You Some Serious Money

By  | 

If you’re anything like us, as soon as Fenty Beauty launches a new product, you freak TF out and head over to Sephora immediately. But, good news! If it’s not too late and you haven’t yet purchased Rihanna’s body lava, a woman on Twitter shared an alternative to the glittery product, and — SHOCKER — it costs much less if you make it yourself!

The body lava, which retails for $59, is actually pretty simple to make, and thanks to a tutorial by Aleah Jackson, you can save that money while also creating a shimmery product that essentially does the exact same thing. See?

As you can tell from the video, the formula only requires two (much less expensive) items: a travel-size bottle of baby oil and a little bit of the Jackie Aina x Artist Couture La Peach highlighter, which retails for $28. After combining those two products and giving the bottle a little shake, you’re left with a product almost identical to RiRi’s body lava from her new Beach Please collection. It’s as simple and easy as that!

So, what inspired Aleah to make her own DIY body lava? She told Allure, “As a college student, I’m not always able to afford the things I want, so on the spur of the moment, I made this very simple concoction for all ladies and men who are on a budget like myself to shine!” Now that is some good thinking!

This isn’t the first time people have come up with Fenty Beauty alternatives, and we’re sure it won’t be the last, either. That’s right! Earlier this month, Maybelline announced that they were working on adding more colors to their Master Chrome Highlighter collection, which looks eerily similar to Fenty Beauty’s Trophy Wife Highlighter… except for a fraction of the price.

While there’s no way to tell atm whether or not Fenty Beauty will be affected by all of the latest beauty dupes, it’s important for people to know that they don’t necessarily have to break the bank to get a product similar to the high-end stuff they’re being pushed to buy on social media. Just sayin’!
