Rihanna locks in Makeup Deal with MAC

rihanna-mac_510x349

One week after Rihanna presented her first fashion show for River Island the pop princess has moved onto her next stylish venture: a makeup collection for MAC.

The collaboration — which the Rihanna called “a no-brainer” — will include multiple collections of color cosmetics due in stores this year, according to WWD. The first item to hit shelves: RiRi Woo, a lipstick inspired by the Grammy singer’s favorite MAC red, Ruby Woo, that will release in time with Rihanna’s Diamonds Tour concerts on May 4 and 5 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. MAC will open a pop-up shop on trihanna-grammy-waves-red-lipstick-h724he first night to showcase the line.

 

“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.”

While MAC has worked with several entertainers in the past in partnerships including their annual Viva Glam campaign, this is the first time that the brand has done a celebrity collaboration on more than just a one-off  product. The deal also marks Rihanna’s first makeup line.

The word “hologram” may bring to mind Tupac concerts and ’90s novelty sunglasses, but this iridescent finish is set to become a major spring 2013 fashion trend.
