Rihanna Wore Fenty Beauty On The Cover Of 'Elle' & It'll Make You Want Her Products Even More

by Melanie Richtman

Rihanna is known for her daring looks. Whether it's bright red hair or a super sheer Met Gala dress, Rihanna always gets people talking. Which is why it should come as no surprise that Rihanna's heart-shaped Fenty Beauty look on the cover of Elle is basically breaking the internet.

To celebrate the launch of her new makeup line Fenty Beauty, Rihanna made an appearance on three different Elle covers, two of which show Rihanna with a carefully drawn purple heart on her face. And let's be honest, Rihanna might be the only person who could draw a heart on her face using makeup and get away with it.

The covers showcase one of Rihanna's favorite products from the collection: the Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick in Unicorn by Fenty Beauty, which is a shimmery light purple stick that would probably be used as a highlighter or lip color by most people (but Rihanna isn't most people).

Naturally everyone is excited about Rihanna's new beauty line, and she has been getting a lot of attention for teasing Fenty Beauty products on Instagram, and also for responding to fans and customers that slid into her DMs to ask about her new cosmetic line, which is incredibly endearing.

In one particularly entertaining exchange, a fan asked Rihanna if her products were tested on animals and she made a joke, saying "You callin' me an animal? LOL," implying that she tested all of the Fenty Beauty products on herself. Talk about standing behind your products.

Obviously most people won't draw a heart on their face using Fenty Beauty products, but just imagine how pretty this color would be on your lips or eyes.

Based on previous celebrity beauty collections (cough, Kylie Cosmetics, cough), Rihanna's Fenty Beauty collection is sure to sell out almost instantly when it debuts at midnight on Sept. 8.

Rihanna also turned heads while celebrating the launch of the collection during New York Fashion Week on Thursday night. She looked like an actual glowing goddess with gold eyeshadow and a shimmery gold highlight on her cheekbone, a look that was created using her Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick in Blonde.


With all of these inspiring makeup looks floating around the web, fans are super excited to get their hands on the collection.

Makeup enthusiasts are clearly inspired by Rihanna's Elle covers and are eager to start creating beauty looks on their own with her new products.

And some people just can't contain their excitement over the collection.

Plus people are raving about the diverse range of shades for a variety of skin tones.

The Fenty Beauty collection launches Sept. 8 at 12 a.m. PST on, so get your wallet ready, because you're probably going to want everything.

They should've given us more of a heads up so we could've saved accordingly... And taken off work to get a good spot in line at Sephora like a true fan.

You can recreate Rihanna's Elle cover look, and get your hands on the full collection, as soon as the line drops at 12 a.m. PST on Sept. 8.
