Consumers of pop sensation Rihanna’s beauty and skincare range may have to dig a little deeper into their pockets to get their hands on Fenty products.
Earlier this week the star, whose name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, announced that Fenty Beauty and Skin would be launching in eight African countries by the end of May.
The news sent fans into a frenzy on social media as South Africa was among the countries which will sell the luxury brand items.
The price point for the Fenty Beauty items is similar to that of high-end brands like Mac, Inglot and Bobbi Brown.
One can expect to pay around R360 for a primer, R350 to R450 for a lip gloss and close to R800 for foundation.
The lipsticks range from R350 to R440 and blush and other powder palettes average between R350 to R500.
And the cheapest listed eye shadow palette costs R565 and at the highest end, a bronzer and highlighter palette have R970 price tag attached to it.
Meanwhile the skincare range’s full-sized bundle costs R1 600 and the “mini must-have set” is prized at R1 300.
There are 39 listed items that are sold individually or in bundles. The cheapest item, a mini cleanser, is R295. The most expensive item is a day and night time skincare bundle that costs R2950.
As of May 27, skincare and beauty enthusiasts will be able to buy the products at selected Edgars and Arc stores around the country.
Consumers will also be able to make a purchase on the Fenty Beauty website.
Since its inception in 2017 and their launch into different parts of the world, the Fenty brand has collaborated with local artists.
And award-winning musician Gigi Lamayne and popular make-up artist Rezah Sampson have announced that they will be partnering with the brand.
The pop sensation said on her website, that she went into creating make up to inspire others.
“Make up is there for you to have fun with, it should never feel like pressure. It should never feel like a uniform,” she said.
Feel free to take chances, and take risks, and dare to do something new or different.”
