Not only can you dress like Rihanna, now you can wear her makeup too. After designing a clothing line for British retailer River Island, the 25-year-old singer has landed an unprecedented deal with MAC for her own line of cosmetics.
MAC and the pop princess have teamed up for a series of color cosmetics called RiRi [Hearts] MAC that will launch later this year.
“When you think of makeup, the brand that pops into your mind—for something legit—is MAC,” Rihanna told WWD. “Whatever color you want, it’s like ‘Let’s go to MAC.’ I’ve been using MAC on tour for such a long time it was a natural fit for me. I have always loved makeup, and I always said that if I do it, I want to do it with a credible brand.”
The first release will be RiRi Woo, a lipstick inspired by her favorite MAC red, Ruby Woo. The product will debut at Rihanna’s “Diamonds” tour shows on May 4 and 5 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, where MAC will open a pop-up shop on the first night to unveil the line.
I am not a label whore, but I do love me some Rihanna and will probably go out and but her products once releases. She is such an edgy artist who knows how to delivery good music and sex appeal, across the globe.Now, I am not saying that a woman should solely use her sexiness as the main tool for success, but it’s done by Rihanna in such a way that is not disrespectful to herself. She has crossed some lines with lyrics and music videos, but you can’t help but respect her for the artist that she is.
