Rihanna's Fenty Beauty Dark Shades Are Officially Sold Out

And her fans are equally bummed and thrilled over it. 

Fans and beauty enthusiasts who flocked to Sephora to get a hold of Rihanna's Fenty Beauty makeup line over the weekend left little for the rest of us to cop. Several reports have confirmed that the brand's shades to accommodate deeper tones have officially sold out.

Fenty Beauty arrived online and in stores Friday (Sept. 8). With a week of teasers, Fenty Beauty consisted of foundation for 40 shades, a release like no other in the beauty market. With most brands releasing two shades for women of color, the singer has shed light on black buying power. Sharing on social media, fans and even employees at Sephora have posted photos of empty racks of Fenty Beauty–especially foundations catering to women of color.

The Fenty Beauty website shares the sold-out status.

Aside from the massive sellouts, fans from all over have also given the singer the stamp of approval with live reviews. One came from Empire's  Gabourey Sidibe and model Nneoma Anosike, who can be seen on the brand's website.

"Representing one of the dark shades of foundation for @fentybeauty is an amazing thing not only because it was created by Rihanna but more importantly, that the beauty world for people of color has welcomed yet another brand that goes into understanding that we melanins have different undertones and shades- not just 3 but multiple!," Anosike said. "Thank you Fenty beauty and @badgalriri. Welcome to the makeup world! You started with a bang !!"

The cultural impact of Fenty Beauty should wake up the beauty industry. With black women spending $7.5 billion annually on beauty products, they've been consistently been ignored in the mainstream. Over the years, brands like YSL and L’Oréal  have pushed out makeup to cater to women of color, but not as wide-ranging as Fenty Beauty.

The immediate success of Fenty Beauty is also a win for the singer's pockets. Newsweek reports the singer inked a $10 million deal with Kendo Brands to create Fenty Beauty. We're more than certain the singer will profit way more than expected because, black girl magic.

Kylie Jenner Doubles Down On Being Crowned A "Self Made" Billionaire

The premise of "self-made" and its interpretation when it comes to privileged celebrities has been a huge debate. When Kylie Jenner was named Forbes' youngest self-made billionaire, debates were raised due to her timeline in the limelight and her wealthy family. The 21-year-old defended her title, explaining how she doesn't fall into any ofter category.

"There’s really no other word to use other than self-made because that is the truth," she said in Q&A with Interview Magazine's German edition. "That is the category that I fall under," she started.

She acknowledged how her fan base equated to her success but refuted claims that she used her family's money to jump-start her wildly successful Kylie Cosmetics line.

"Although, I am a special case because before I started Kylie Cosmetics, I had a huge platform and lots of fans. I did not get money from my parents past the age of 15. I used 100 percent of my own money to start the company, not a dime in my bank account is inherited… and I am very proud of that."

Earlier this month (March 5) the mother-of-one officially surpassed Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest person to reach billionaire status, when Kylie Cosmetics hit a billion dollars in revenue.
