Forever busy, Rihanna (who’s currently en route to Dakar, Senegal, to raise funds for education for her foundation) has been dropping hints that she’s about to add something new to her plate this month.
At the very least, we can say she’s probably queuing up a new Fenty Beauty eye shadow. Following the Grammy Awards, Fenty Beauty global makeup artist Priscilla Ono posted an image of her performance makeup and in the description wrote “full performance makeup by Fenty Beauty.” The hitch is Rihanna was shown wearing a violet shade of eyeshadow, which would be no big deal except the category as of yet isn’t a part of Fenty Beauty’s permanent offerings.
There are also rumors circulating Rihanna is starting up a lingerie line. Launching a clothing line would make sense given she now has space in her schedule with her Puma partnership ending with the spring 2018 collection. According to Twitter user @MafiosoRo, “Rihanna is dropping a lingerie line around May around it’s gonna be fucking awesome. I’ve seen the products and just…..phenomenal. Yes, available up to 3x.”
A one-off tweet by a person who seemingly has no relationship with Rihanna is thin gruel to say the least, but another poster on lipstickalley.com in January of this year said the same thing (which, granted, could be the same user from Twitter), writing, “You can tell a lot of work was put into this line. It is being launched in partnership with Techstyle, Techstyle is formerly JustFab. That is all that can be shared for now.”
Lingerie is a perfect fit for Rihanna. Not only does it suit her sexy persona, she’s very much a fan of the category, often mixing in lingerie and loungewear pieces with her outfits and costumes. Do a search for Rihanna + lingerie and hundreds of images pop up.
As for timing, after her Fenty by Puma presentation in September 2017, a reporter asked her what her next challenge was and she replied, “I’m already working on it and it’s a secret so you’ll have to look out for that next spring. But you know I never stop, the wheels are always turning.”
Given how much time she’s been spending in Paris and talk that she’s purchased an apartment there, if she does launch something above and beyond a new Fenty Beauty product, we’re guessing it will see it’s debut in the City of Light.
