Cosmetics were taken to another level for the House of Coco team at the launch of Fenty Beauty by Rihanna.

Harvey Nichols, the UK’s exclusive stockist of Fenty Beauty opened the doors to the general public on Friday morning to a frenzy of excitement from all corners of the world. Rihanna was releasing her first ever collection of beauty products and the anticipation was immense.

With over 90 products in the Fenty Beauty range there is literally something for every skin tone.

Before she was BadGalRiRi: music, fashion and beauty icon, Robyn Rihanna Fenty was a little girl in Barbados transfixed by her mother’s lipstick. The first time she experienced makeup for herself, she never looked back. Makeup became her weapon of choice for self-expression—a way to radiate her ever-changing mood—and it powered a fearless take on beauty that helped her become the boundary-breaking icon she is today.

Rihanna was inspired to create Fenty Beauty after years of experimenting with the best-of-the-best in beau- ty—and still seeing a void in the industry for products that performed across all skin types and tones. She launched a makeup line “so that women everywhere would be included,” focusing on a wide range of tradition- ally hard-to-match skin tones, creating formulas that work for all skin types, and pinpointing universal shades.

Fenty Beauty products are designed to feel lightweight, even as they deliver buildable coverage that effortlessly layers, to ultimately “make skin look like skin.” Most importantly, Rihanna creates makeup to inspire “Makeup is there for you to have fun with,” she says. “It should never feel like pressure. It should never feel like a uniform. Feel free to take chances, and take risks, and dare to do something new or different.”

Let’s talk about the products. Created by Rihanna with her vision that’s always ahead of the game, Fenty Beauty redefines the rules with light-as-air formulas that love to be layered—in a global lineup of shades designed for all. Fenty Beauty is 100% cruelty free.
