It's been a while since Fenty Beauty has dropped some beauty newness. And just when we thought that Rihanna would finally be releasing her highly anticipated album, she's surprised us yet again with a completely unexpected beauty drop

After fans initially complained about the dry formula of the Pro Filt'r Matte Foundation, Fenty Beauty has announced that a more hydrating formula is on the way. Check out the dewy new foundation, the shades you can find it in, and how you can make it work for your skin through this summer heat below.

Get ready, everybody! 

Fenty Beauty just dropped brand-new foundation, and it's all about the hydration! 

"Get your #FENTYFACE ready for 50 shades of #PROFILTRHYDRATINGFOUNDATION — a new foundation that’s perfect for normal to dry skin. This natural finish formula delivers hydration in medium to full coverage that keeps skin looking like skin! Available in stores and online on August 15th in the same 50 shades as our original," the brand stated on its Instagram. 

Your perfect shade match is definitely somewhere in there.

"Issa 1:1 match!! Our new #PROFILTRHYDRATINGFOUNDATION comes in the same range of 50 shades as our original #PROFILTRSOFTMATTEFOUNDATION for all skin tones! Get ready for an all new formula made for normal to dry skin types that is longwearing and delivers hydration in a natural finish," the brand said about the variety of shades. 

And of course, we already got to see it on RiRi. 

"Y’all know @badgalrir ihad to look out for the Fenty Beauties with dry skin! It was important for #Rihanna to develop the perfect formula to keep you fly without the dry in a flawless natural finish…," Fenty Beauty wrote under a photo of Rihanna serving some gorgeous oil-free skin.

And lucky for us, there's already video footage of the foundation in action!

Fenty Beauty Global MUA Priscilla Ono compared the new formula against the Pro Filt'r Soft Matte formula to give people the true inside scoop into which foundations are best for each skin type. The tutorial and expert advice considers how oily someone's skin is, the finish they prefer, and how much makeup they generally use. 

The new foundation is perfect for those at-home makeup chemists. 

Who knew that so many beauty lovers had been mixing moisturizers with their Fenty foundations to create this desired dewy finish?

"Just in time for my birthday, y’all must’ve got sick of my comments asking for a hydrating formula so I could stop mixing hyaluronic acid with the original," someone tweeted. 

And have no fear, it works with all of the brand's face primers. 

"Yes! Our foundations work with all of our primers. In addition to our PRO FILT'R SOFT MATTE PRIMER, we've added PRO FILT'R MATTIFYING PRIMER and PRO FILT'R HYDRATING PRIMER so you can really customize your routine. Stay tuned for examples of how we like to mix and match," Fenty Beauty tweeted. 

Rihanna remains the queen!

We love a smart businesswoman who listens to her fans even when they think she's not paying attention. Needless to say, we're so excited to get our hands on this hydrating formula as soon as it drops on August 15.
