Today, Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty’s holiday line, the Galaxy Collection, hits stores, so be sure to grab the shimmer-filled palette before it sells out.
Celebrity makeup launches aren’t always met with accolades by beauty buffs and fans alike. For example, Kim Kardashian drew criticism from celeb makeup artist Jeffree Star, who publicly critiqued her contour kit (and swatch-ing skills) on Twitter this summer:
I’m never a fan of finger swatches so I’ll have to try the @kkwbeauty on my face for a final verdict but… doesn’t look great so far 😰

However, Bad Girl RiRi has scored big with fans and critics alike when it comes to her Fenty Beauty line. The products have garnered outstanding reviews for being top quality as well as inclusive of all skin tones. Essence Magazine reports, “Rihanna has created a collection that’s truly inclusive and offers something for everyone—the light pink lip glosses will complement fairer tones while the berry lippies will look great on deeper toned beauties.”
In fact, what’s made Fenty Beauty such a success is that the chemists behind the products designed them especially for women of color, where there was a huge gap in the market. “The next wave of growth is expected to emerge from extending solutions to consumers of all other ethnicities,” research provider Euromonitor reported last year in a study on the multicultural beauty market. Fenty Beauty offers 40 shades of foundation, which is astronomical for a prestige cosmetics line, and also key to the brand’s success. In other words, the makeup isn’t just selling because it’s touted by a celebrity; it sells because it’s quality and has market value.
The Galaxy Collection features glitter shadows and shimmer glosses ideal for holiday soirees, when you want to light up the room. Choice shadows include from the holiday palette include Nepturnt, Sublime, and Xtraterrestrial.
