The Rihanna for MAC makeup collection is finally happening! MAC Cosmetics tapped Rihanna for a makeup collection collaboration and the entertainer said that her decision to venture off into the world of makeup design alongside MAC has been ‘a no-brainer’ as she’s been a fan of the go-to-brand when it comes to professional makeup for quite a while.
“When you think of makeup, the brand that pops into your mind — for something legit — is MAC. 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”, said Rihanna in an interview with WWD and it seems that the brand’s creative team has the same respect for Rihanna as the brand has signed an agreement with the Barbadian diva that will lead to the development of not one, not two but four makeup collections that will be launched throughout 2013.
Apparently, Rihanna has been a hand-on collaborator with MAC in the creation process of the makeup products included in the upcoming collections as the singer says that she likes to express her creativity through music, makeup and fashion. Now, we’ve already seen her take on style featured in the new Rihanna for River Island SS 2013 collection and now excitement runs high as the Grammy-award winning singer is set to wow her fans with an array of fierce and fabulous makeup products that aim to compliment all skin tones.
Whether she reached her goal, we can’t say for sure quite yet as the first products signed RiRi Hearts MAC – this will be the title of all four collections to be launched- will reach its target starting this May. Apparently, MAC will open a stand at Rihanna’s concerts held in 4 May in Brooklyn before making the collection available for online purchase and later on available in stores.
So, what should we expect from the upcoming MAC Rihanna makeup collaboration? The RiRi Woo lipstick inspired by the singer’s MAC favorite red lip color, the Ruby Woo lipstick, a shade that Rihanna wanted to make her own all while making sure this is a color that compliments all skin tones. The lipstick will be featured in all four makeup collections meaning this is ‘la pièce de résitance’ of the collaboration.
Rihanna’s MAC summer 2013 makeup collection will also include two other lip color shades, a Lustre Drops pigment and a pressed powder duo blusher. The singer’s MAC lineup is said to include four fab lip color shades, an intense pigmented lipglass to match the RiRi Woo lipstick, various eye color shades and falsies. For the holiday season, the collection expands to include another 10 makeup products ranging from nail polish to makeup bags, so be sure to keep an eye on the RiRi Hearts MAC collections as the products will probably fly off the shelves!
