This is not a drill – we’re getting a Rihanna beauty line. Badgalriri, purveyor of “Pour It Up,” those chokers we’re trying desperately to pull off, and new fragrance RiRi by Rihanna, has alluded to an upcoming cosmetics line.
Rih sounded alarm bells when she registered a trademark for the name Fenty Beauty last year. Refinery29 followed up in an interview this week, to which the star gave a non-answer answer: “That is definitely something I am going to have my hands on and would love to do. It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do, but I’ve always had so much on my hands. But, this time, I’m going to make sure it happens. I’m going to find some time between albums and fragrance to do that. I promise.”
Her statement “I’m going to make sure it happens” isn’t quite as convincing as the words we’d like to hear (“It launches today, my makeup artist helped me design it, and it’s magically already on your face”) but a promise from Rihanna is good enough for us.
