Rihanna stepped into the limelight back in 2006 when she released her first studio album A Girl Like Me and even then it was clear to see she was here to make an impact on the world. Fast forward 15 years later with 8 studio albums and having featured in over 30 movies; Rihanna’s multi hyphenated persona has given us Fenty Beauty. “Inspired by her global lifestyle, Rihanna brings together ingredients from around the world and pairs them with skincare powerhouses, such as hyaluronic acid and niacinamide—for clinically proven results. Driven by that bad encounter with a harsh product, she’s prioritized clean formulas that are also vegan and gluten free. The packaging? Earth-conscious. Having launched in 2018, with an estimated revenue of $580M USD per year it’s easy to see why this powerhouse brand has been successful. Rihanna is very hands on and engaed with her followers, regularly demonstrated in numerous skincare posts and videos she drops on her personal and brand social media pages.
We took it upon ourselves to use 10 of her products from the Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin range and these are now part of our staple.
