Love it: Rihanna’s RiRi Hearts M.A.C collection




Her debut collection for the brand sold out in what felt like - and probably was - five seconds flat, so I’m guessing that when it hits in a few weeks the RiRi Hearts M.A.C offering will go through the roof! And with good reason as it’s a seriously wearable, covetable and totally damn delicious lineup of prods all round.


Rihanna calls it her perfect “palette of lavish fall colour”, and although it will be landing in the Southern Hemisphere during Spring time it will fit right on in with what you will probably want to be wearing over the silly season. It’s made up of a bunch of slightly cheeky yet classically gorgeous shades, finishes and tools, all encased in the metallic warmth of celebratory rose gold packaging. Lipsticks come in deep raisin-y plum (Talk That Talk), orange frost (Who’s That Chick), creamy matte nude (the divine Nude, which I need to get ASAP) and the vivid red of RiRi Woo (which I wore a lot during the recent NZFW with minimal need for touch ups).  
Eyes come in contrasting soft and smoky cocoas, whilst the skin is all about rich luminosity highlighted with Diamonds Cream Colour Base and Powder Blush in the absolutely beautifulBad Girl Gone Good for a warm coppery, satin-finish. Powder Blush Duo Hibiscus Kiss is another winner that may be more suited to those of porcelain complexions, made up of a cool coral and matte neutral bronze.
Rihanna herself launched RiRi Hearts M.A.C in Hong Kong, where all eyes were on her er, stylish cat’s eye! Word is it that it was the work of M.A.C Liquid Eyeliner in Boot Black, which always goes on super-smoothly, so you can make the ends of your liner winged as much as you want. To do just that, pull your eyelid taut while you apply the liner along your lashline and past the top outer corner of your eye, and follow the curve going upward with the liner. If you want a super mega-winged look, draw the liner farther out, like Miss Riri. Then, start at the outer corner to go back in, and draw a thin line all the way to the inner corner. She kept things chic and simple with gold shadow and multiple coats of mascara. Beautiful.
Last up, the collection hits stores in October - so not many sleeps left at all!
