Rihanna is the latest celebrity to collaborate with MAC Cosmetics on a makeup line.
The 25-year-old Barbadian beauty gushed about her new deal to WWD saying, “When you think of makeup, the brand that pops into your mind — for something legit — is MAC,” RiRi said. “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.”
Rihanna will be releasing three collections with the makeup brand, a summer collection, a fall collection and a holiday collection.
However to start things off, Rihanna will debut a red lipstick called “RiRi Woo” and it will be available in a MAC pop-up shop on May 4th and 5th when she hits the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY for her tour.
Rihanna talked about creating her lipstick which was inspired by her favorite color Ruby Woo, “Working with MAC, it’s difficult to get a red lipstick that beats Ruby Woo, because it works on every skin tone. I had so many different samples to choose from and so many different colors underneath — blue, yellow, orange and pink bases. And I got to pick one that worked, and I tried it on all my friends to make sure it worked on all of our skin tones.”
