Last April, luxury goods company LVMH announced a $10 million beauty partnership with Rihanna and we’ve been craving more details ever since.
So, when a now-deleted Instagram preview of what appeared to be lipsticks from Fenty Beauty finally emerged on the singer’s birthday (February 20), our hearts nearly skipped a beat.
And if that weren’t enough, the RihNavy had a collective heart attack after discovering the full collection would be available on Sephora shelves next fall.
Although the beauty retailer has aisles of amazing lip color, Rihanna’s line may offer the best lipsticks of all time (in our Kanye voice).
A recently launched and deactivated Instagram account revealed it’s set to include a pink holographic lip color (below), the same shade that was allegedly used for RihRih’s Fenty x Puma Spring 2017 show.

And according to Global Artist and Educator for Kendo Brands, Erik Soto, a special someone will have an exclusive first look at the entire Fenty Beauty line.
That’s right; the search is officially on for a Global Makeup Artist of Fenty Beauty and open interviews will start Friday, February 24, 2017 at Hotel Rivington in New York City. Open calls will also be held the following week in Dallas and L.A., and those who make it to the second phase will have an opportunity to apply makeup on Rihanna herself!
In an exclusive statement to Bustle, Fenty Beauty’s PR team also confirmed the exciting news.
“Fenty Beauty has officially partnered with James Vincent, who is leading the charge on their search for a Global Makeup Artist for Fenty Beauty. This is the only official information posted from the brand since the announcement of the launch in Spring of 2016.”
“Any other post and/or chatter are from fan pages that are enthusiastically awaiting the launch and are unofficial and conjecture about the launch. We are just as excited as the fans and promise the launch will be worth the wait. Stay tuned for Fall 2017.”
