This is very exciting news! Rihanna has teamed up with MAC Cosmetics and will be releasing a limited edition collection in May 2013. Rihanna called the collaboration “a no-brainer” and added “When you think of makeup, the brand that pops into your mind — for something legit — is MAC”.
The signature piece of the lineup, RiRi Woo, will be sold with all four collections. The summer collection also includes 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 multishade eye shadow palettes and false lashes. (She likes to wear two pairs at a time)
Creating RiRi Woo was a particular challenge, she said: “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.”
I love Rihanna and I’m very excited to get my hands on this collection. Can’t wait!! xxo
