First things first: Happy Birthday, RiRi! The Grammy-winning singer turns 25 today and as one of her biggest fans, I just had to give her a bday shout-out.
Now onto the real news–Rihanna is doing a cosmetics collection with MAC. Yes, this is major. Rihanna revealed the first look at the RiRi ♥ MAC Cosmetics line on her Instagram this morning, but WWD also reported that the partnership will include four collections of color cosmetics that will launch throughout the year. The first, a lipstick called RiRi Woo (inspired by MAC’s iconic Ruby Woo), will come out in May timed to coincide with her concert dates at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The summer collection will feature two new lipsticks, a Lustre Drops shade and a powder blush duo. In fall, RiRi ♥ MAC will introduce four lipsticks, a Lipglass version of RiRi Woo, two eye shadow palettes and false lashes. Rounding out the year, the RiRi ♥ MAC holiday collection will include nail polish, a makeup bag and, you guessed it, more lipsticks.
Of her new cosmetics collection, Rihanna said, “When you think of makeup, the brand that pops into your mind—for something legit—is 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.”
