A few days ago, word dropped that the Bajan bombshell, Rihanna, was collaborating with the Kendo division to bring out an entire makeup collection! A Rihanna makeup collection! Kendo is part of the LVMH Moët Hennesy Louis Vuitton and I can’t wait for this! You KNOW it is going to be person of colour friendly!  Oh!!! Slay RiRi!  Remember when she had a capsule collection with M.A.C. – the Retro Mattes in that one are still one of my favourites of all time! Anyway, we have a while to wait for this as it is not due to come out until the autumn of 2017.  Those teaser pics will be epic!

The Details

From WWD:

The Kendo division of LVMH Moët Hennesy Louis Vuitton has landed a deal with Rihanna, one of the hottest-selling celebrities in the world of licensing, to do a complete makeup collection.

As one veteran cosmetics executive observed, “everything with her is off the charts.”

Estimates of what LVMH may have paid to make the deal run as high as $10 million.

Kendo, which functions as an incubator producing products that end up being retailed by LVMH’s Sephora perfumery chain and other outposts, will launch a Rihanna makeup range, called Fenty Beauty by Rihanna, in the fall of 2017.

While the company provided no other details, David Suliteanu, chief executive officer of Kendo, was in a celebratory mood. “Fenty Beauty by Rihanna is a beauty rocket ship that will appeal to a huge and diverse global audience,” he said. “We are aiming for the stars.”

……

Kendo has given Rihanna the opportunity to play a key role in the development of her brand and the longevity of a long-term relationship.

Inspired by the sensational whirl of an editorial photo shoot, each lush vignette captures the wit and wonder of his behind-the-scenes world. Original illustrations by contemporary artist Konstantin Kakanias bring each moment to life on covetable, limited-edition packaging.

NEW PRODUCT LAUNCH: Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture by Sundial Brands

This is major news! Sundial Brands (the company behind SheaMoisture and Nubian Heritage) is launching a prestige haircare line, Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture, that will be available at Sephora on March 4th!  This is a big deal considering that even though the options for natural hair and those with kinky/coily/curly textures have increased dramatically over the last 5-10 years, most of the products are not considered prestige.  They are not the kind of products that are considered ‘luxurious’ enough to be found at a salon or a specialty retail store (although, I don’t know why??)

Anyway, this news makes me quite happy as it brings together the legacy of Madam C.J. Walker, who is the America’s first self-made millionaire, with the modern desire to have high-quality natural-based products for persons of colour.

(All information via PR):

Sundial Brands, a leading skincare and haircare manufacturer renowned for its innovative use of high-quality, culturally authentic natural ingredients, today announced the company’s first prestige haircare launch – Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture. Building on the life, legacy and impact of the ground-breaking Madam C.J. Walker – visionary entrepreneur, philanthropist and America’s first female self-made millionaire – the four-collection, 25 SKU line launches exclusively in Sephora stores and on Sephora.com on March 4, 2016.

Serving today’s woman according to her specific hair texture needs, Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture’s product solutions contain all new formulations created with the highest quality natural ingredients – including first-to-market dual oil encapsulations – and performance-driven innovation to inspire every woman to be unapologetic in the expression of her individual beauty – whether kinky, coily, curly, wavy, or straight/heat-styled.  The treatment collection is designed for all hair types to help restore and maintain health. 

“Madam C.J. Walker was the first person to devise and scale a business model that addressed the haircare and beauty needs of women of color, while also challenging the myopic ideals of the beauty industry at that time,” said Richelieu Dennis, CEO of Sundial Brands.  “Today, Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture is poised to challenge those same ideals in the prestige category with our revolutionary new products and cutting edge formulations that provide women with any hair texture with a new standard of beauty – their own.  In partnering with Sephora, this launch represents another step forward in our rich history and continues Madam C.J. Walkers’ legacy to help every woman feel confident to embark on the life she desires.

It’s also a dream come true not just for us, but for the millions of women who have been touched by the legacy of Madam C.J. Walker and the millions more who will be inspired to reach their own levels of greatness by hearing her story.  We aim to give this brand back to the world in the elevated, iconic manner deserving of a woman who defied the limitations of her time and accomplished what no American woman had done before – in haircare, beauty or business.  That spirit of audacity, inspiration, empowerment and ingenuity still lives in women today and is reflected in every part of this brand.”

“Greatness begins with confidence. Powerful. Beautiful. You.”
