Husband's Fenty Beauty Highlighter Mix-Up Is Every Stationery Lover's Dream


When Charlema Webb’s husband Vincent asked what she wanted for their first month wedding anniversary, there was only one thing on her mind: a much-coveted Fenty beauty highlighter (and a makeup brush to go with it).

But it seems Charlema didn’t properly explain what she meant as Vincent returned empty handed in the makeup department, but he did have something equally special: a pack of four Sharpie highlighters and a paddle brush.

While Charlema thought it was hilariously cute, fellow stationery nerds everywhere will know that actually Vincent was onto something... in our opinion this is a perfect alternative gift.

Charlema and Vincent, who are from Oakland in California, became a viral sensation after Fenty Beauty - the makeup brand by singer/songwriter turned entrepreneur Rihanna - shared their story on Instagram. “A+ for effort,” the brand wrote, before adding they’d send Charlema the real thing soon. (Winning.)

Charlema explained on Facebook that, on his return from the shops, Vincent had said: “I couldn’t find no Fenty but I got you Sharpie because they are the best highlighters and they been around for a cool minute.”

Vincent knows best. Next time: stickers.
