Whoa, this took us COMPLETELY by surprise!
Here we were almost convinced Miley Cyrus was going to be the next MAC girl when Rihanna comes out of nowhere and totally steals Mileybird’s thunder!!!
The birthday girl tweeted a pic (above) of her collaboration with MAC featuring a set of makeup goodies, including eye shadow, lipstick, and lip gloss, with the caption:
That’s right baby, I’m a #MACgal now! Get into it, package designed and products created from scratch by yours truly! Thanks to the EPIC team at #MAC for giving me the opportunity to play and share my favorite shit with my fans and yours
When did she even find the time to do this between her new album, on-again/off-again Chris Brown romance, AND her recent River Island collection and runway show???
DAYUM!!! She’s srsly taking over the world!
The best part is that this is the first time that MAC is actually collaborating with a celeb for more than just a one-time project, like the Viva Glam collabs. RiRi is going to be an actual “creative partner” and will roll out four collections, called RiRi [Hearts] MAC, with the label throughout this year.
The 25-year-old said:
“When you think of makeup, the brand that pops into your mind – for something legit – is MAC. 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.”
RiRi Woo, a red lipstick inspired by Rihanna’s fave Ruby Woo, will be the first product to launch at the same time as Rihanna’s Diamonds Tour kicks off on May 4 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
A pop-up shop showcasing the products will also be set up at the same time.
The four collections will include a powder blush duo and Lustre Drops shade in the summer, multishade eye shadow palettes and false eyelashes in the fall, and 10 new items, such as nail polish and a makeup bag, released just in time for the holidays.
The fall and holiday campaigns have already been shot by Mert & Marcus, and since we can never get enough Rihanna, we are just shaking with anticipation to see the pics.
They’re obvi gonna be BEYOND HOT!
Go ahead, girl! And happy birthday!!!
