MAC and Rihanna Make-Up Collaboration
Below story via USA Today:
Superstar singer Rihanna has landed a pretty sweet deal, (today) on her Birthday nonetheless, with MAC Cosmetics. MAC and Rihanna have collaborated on several color collections launching this year, according to WWD.
The first item out: RiRi Woo, a lipstick inspired by her favorite MAC red, Ruby Woo.
“When you think of makeup, the brand that pops into your mind — for something legit — is MAC,” the singer told WWD. “Whatever color you want, it’s like ‘Let’s go to MAC.’ I’ve been using MAC on tour for such a long time it was a natural fit for me. I have always loved makeup, and I always said that if I do it, I want to do it with a credible brand.”
For MAC, it marks the first time the brand has worked with a celebrity on more than just a one-off Viva Glam product. And for Rihanna, the deal enabled her to be a makeup artist.
“I really got to play,” Rihanna told WWD. “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.”
