Update: Rihanna just announced via Instagram that the long-awaited Fenty Beauty line will finally become a reality. On Sept. 8, the brand's first collection will debut at Sephora and Harvey Nichols. And . . . that's all we know! The singer has stayed hush-hush about the label and hasn't released any further product information.
We'll continue to keep you updated. Until then, set those calendar alerts!
Original post: After the announcement last year that Rihanna's Fenty Beauty line would be hitting Sephora shelves in 2017, we have anxiously anticipated any scrap of news. Over the weekend, fans got riled up after an unofficial Instagram page (which has since been taken down) claimed that the first product launch would be a holographic lip gloss.
According to the brand's official public relations agency, Bold PR, these were only rumours. However, they did divulge a bit of new information: makeup artist James Vincent will be leading the charge on a search for a global makeup artist for Fenty Beauty. (Vincent is the director of artistry and education for the brand Ardency Inn.)
"This is the only official information posted from the brand since the announcement of the launch in Spring of 2016," said a representative from Bold PR. "Any other post and/or chatter are from fan pages that are enthusiastically awaiting the launch and are unofficial and conjecture about the launch." In other words, stay tuned for Autumn 2017, because that's when we'll all be getting the real scoop! We'll provide more updates as they become available.
