Fashion | May 1, 2020

News broke recently that Kylie Jenner may have been fibbing when reporting sales for her beauty line, Kylie Cosmetics, that supposedly made her a billionaire. Makeup and beauty lines have been one of the most lucrative projects for celebrities. Britney Spears has her perfume line that brings in a cool $50 million a year. Jessica Alba’s health and beauty company, The Honest Company, is now worth $2 billion dollars. 

And then there is Rihanna, who came out with her makeup line, Fenty Beauty, in 2017. Since the launch of Fenty Beauty, Rihanna has been flooded with rave reviews for her products. In fact, Fenty Beauty sales in its first month of operation were five times higher than those of Kylie Cosmetics. So how much is Fenty Beauty worth, and is Rihanna headed towards becoming an actual billionaire? We have the details!
