Rihanna Partners With MAC Cosmetics

My bestie girl is making moves lol! Rihanna is just on the heels of releasing her first 120-piece collaborative fashion collection with River Island, and it was only a matter of time before she released her own makeup line with none other than MAC Cosmetics! And all at 25-years-young … what a birthday gift! 

She released a photo today on her Instagram of some of the featured products from the line in celebration of her 25th birthday. (Happy Birthday Rih!) The caption read,

That’s right baby, I’m a #MACgal now! Get into it, package designed and products created from scratch by your truly! Thanks to the EPIC team at #MAC for giving me the opportunity to play and share my favorite sh*t with my fans and yours.

Rihanna is always spotted rocking a hot lipstick color, so I can’t wait to her full collection (she even got her girlfriends involved). The rose gold packaging on the compact and brush…too cute! I need it in my life!

Her first product is a lipstick called “RiRi Woo”, yes, a cute playoff of the popular “Ruby Roo”. The lipstick was created to work with every skin tone and is expected to hit stores around her Diamond Tour around May 4th or 5th. She’ll be selling RiRi Woo at her concerts as well, so bring some extra cash! 

According to Women’s Wear Daily, here is more information on Rihanna’s summer and holiday collections:

The summer collection also include two additional lipsticks, a Lustre Drops shade and a powder blush duo. Fall’s 16 sku’s include four lipsticks, a deeply pigmented Lipglass version of RiRi Woo, two multi-shade eye shadow palettes and false lashes. (She likes to wear two pairs at a time.) Holiday will bring another 10 items, including nail polish, a makeup bag and additional lipsticks.

Are you hype about the collection? What pieces do you have your eye on?

Behind the Scenes: Rihanna For River Island

I can’t wait to see what Rihanna is cooking up for her first clothing collaboration with River Island. Rihanna is a trend setter, so it was only a matter of time before she released her own threads. 

She stays true to herself and is a risk taker, which works in her favor. It was important for her to team up with open, creative minds to bring her vision to life. Her line with River Island is for “young, sassy personalities” highly influenced off of fashionable street style.

"This has been something I’ve wanted to do ever since I started loving fashion," she says, adding that "everytime I saw something on a rack I wanted to do something to it to change it, so I felt that only way I could do that was by designing something perfect for me. This was my way of doing that - teaming up with River Island and designing clothes for young, sassy personalities, that’s what I wanted to do."

Peep the video on some behind the scenes talk with Rihanna on what we can expect, her personal style, and some sketches of the pieces. Rih will be showing her first River Island collection at London Fashion Week. Can’t wait! 

Do you think the collection will be more chic, sporty, or edgy?
