“Skincare, it’s the truth. It either works or it doesn’t. There’s nowhere to hide”
Rihanna wants to take all of our coins — and we are totally okay with it! Rihanna has been working on Fenty Skin as far back as March 2019, when she filed a trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The Fenty Skin trademark covers the following:
- Medicated and non-medicated skincare
- Body care
- Personal care products
- Accessories such as kits, tools and applicators.
According to Black Enterprise, there is no set date on when fans can expect the skincare line or an indication of the type of products that will launch. But one thing that Rihanna did confirm is that we can expect the line to meet the same standards of perfection and quality that distinguishes Fenty Beauty. Rihanna also shared that she has complete control over everything Fenty Beauty releases, including the shade names and the marketing language. “Oh yeah! I write all of the copy for the websites, the product descriptions, product names, the color names…” She is focused on achieving the same level of perfection and quality with Fenty Skin as she did with Fenty Beauty.

The May 2020 issue of @BritishVogue was created prior to the pandemic which has subsequently brought the world almost to a halt. But, as the Editor-in-Chief of a magazine that prides itself on entertaining, delighting and distracting even under the most difficult of circumstances, I am thrilled to announce the inimitable @BadGalRiri as our May 2020 cover star. Rihanna is a woman I am lucky enough to count among my closest creative collaborators. And did I ever imagine that I would see a durag on the cover of Vogue? No, reader, I did not. Although this potent symbol of black life – of self-preservation, resistance and authenticity – has an important place in popular culture, it is rarely viewed through the prism of high fashion. Yet, here we have the most fabulous, aspirational and beautiful durag, worn by a woman who is breaking every boundary she comes up against. How exciting. See the full story and interview by @AfuaHirsch in the new issue, on newsstands and available for free digital download Friday 3 April. #Rihanna wears all @Burberry by @RiccardoTisci17 and a @StephenJonesMillinery durag.
