Fiery red lipstick continues to be a beauty staple among all women, regardless of what
idiots say things come out of A$AP Rocky’s mouth. Rihanna, known for her love for the sexy shade, will collaborate with MAC to create RiRi (Hearts) MAC, a beauty collection that will carry everything from fake eyelashes to nail polish.
On Saturday (April 13), WWD reports that the Barbadian beauty has also created her own hue of red inspired by MAC’s fan-favorite “Ruby Woo.” Set for a May 3 release, the “Diamonds” singer’s signature is also engraved into the matte red stick, retailed at $16.
“Working with MAC, it’s difficult to get a red lipstick that beats Ruby Woo, because it works on every skin tone,” she says about creating the collection. “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 really got to play. There’s so much to choose from, and you can mix different textures with different colors and different greens in different eye shadows. I learned so much about the detail of makeup and what makes things look different. What makes it apply different is really important. Every little detail is important.”
This is Rihanna’s second foray into the fashion world this year. She recently unveiled her River Island collection at London Fashion Week.
