Rihanna Collaboration With Mac Cosmetics Announced!

Hot on the heels of Rihanna’s new collection for River Island, word on the street is the lady of the moment is collaborating with MAC cosmetics on several collections in 2013, with the first due out in May!

The collaboration will span four different colour collections. John Demsey, group president of MAC’s parent company Estée Lauder said: “We always say that MAC likes to go on a date but doesn’t really want to go into a relationship.

“But this relationship with Rihanna is a long-term one that involves the development of four distinct color initiatives.” Both John and Rihanna stressed how involved the singer has been in the project, basing the first collection, RiRi Woo, on her favourite red lipstick by MAC.

John said: “These four collections are like four tracks on a Rihanna compilation. Each one has its own vibe, look, special makeup packaging and flavor. This is really the convergence of pop culture, fast fashion, and iconic style and makeup.”

Rihanna added: “I really got to play. 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.”

Rihanna for River Island – Hit or Miss?

Posted on February 18, 2013

We all love Rihanna, with her fierce sense of style and body to die for, every girl wants to be her. So when word got round that she was designing a collection for River island, we waited with baited breath.

I couldn’t wait for the sharp tailoring, studs and spikes, acid wash denim and sexy bodycon dresses with a nod to 90’s grunge.

What they came up with wasn’t quite what I was expecting. Take a look below…

I’m a bit disappointed.

Ok yes I can imagine Rihanna in the little lycra dresses, and even the crop tops and thigh split skirt. But the collection is just missing something for me, it just doesn’t have that edge, maybe it’s a lack of accessories? That girl does like her bling. Maybe if Rihanna was wearing the clothes herself I would feel different? I don’t know, it just seems to be missing something fierce and sexy that should be there, and I expected it to be there.

What do you think??
