Rihanna is known for a lot of things, but one of the things so many women love about her is her makeup. She has the perfect canvas of a face and is willing to experiment with different looks. MAC Cosmetics is known for being edgy and a bit theatrical, and so is Rihanna. That’s why when we heard that RiRi decided to team up with MAC Cosmetics to have her own makeup line it was a perfect match.
According to Women’s Wear Daily, Rihanna felt that pairing up with MAC Cosmetics for a makeup line made sense to her. “I’ve been using MAC for such a long time on tour it was a natural fit for me,” she explained. MAC Cosmetics stated on their collaboration with Rihanna, “Rihanna isn’t another celebrity collaborator — she’s a “creative partner” actively involved in the products’ creation.”
Rihanna’s MAC makeup line is called “RiRi [Hearts] MAC” and is set to release on May 4. She will actually be having four makeup collections with MAC. The first collection goes with her most recent makeup look she’s been spotted wearing, red lipstick. The lipstick is called “RiRi Woo” a spin-off of one of MAC’s most popular lipsticks “Ruby Woo”. The packaging is a pretty rose gold with Rihanna’s signature on it.
Of course some controversy has been involved in this Rihanna and MAC Cosmetics partnership. Many people feel that Rihanna should not be an ambassador for this brand since young women look up to her, and many young women purchase MAC makeup. They feel that Rihanna is an unsuitable role model due to her on again off again romance with Chris Brown.
