Justin told Rihanna, "All the women here told me tonight that a lipstick can change your attitude instantly." Rihanna agreed, remarking, "Oh yeah. You even talk different. Your mouth moves differently. Everything. It's a transformer for real." Justin asked about the shade that makes her feel like "that bitch" and Rihanna revealed, "For sure this color that I'm wearing right now. It's called MVP. Red lipstick has always been my favorite thing. I've always looked up to my mom as a beauty icon in my eyes. She was always big on red lipstick. That was her thing."

However, she did warn, "Boyfriends usually hate red lipstick, I'm just letting you know." Justin countered, "I feel like you can do whatever the f*ck you want," and Rihanna declared, "I do! Yes!"
