Why The Internet Thinks Rihanna Is Dropping A Skincare Line

Welcome, Fenty Skin

Instead of new music, Rihanna has blessed social media with a different kind of teaser — or at least that's what fans think about her latest post. 

We're seven days into a brand new decade, but one thing remains the same: Rihanna's fans are hungry. Hungry for a new album, hungry for a world tour and now, hungry for a skincare line.  for a new album. 

The Fenty Beauty founder took to Instagram this week to post a makeup-free selfie with what appears to be a blemish on her chin. "First selfie of the year doe. #2020," she wrote. Naturally, the internet quickly flooded the singer's comment section with album remarks.

Now, being someone who has single-handedly built an empire of cult beauty products, the Fenty Beauty founder clearly does not need to be schooled on how to cover a blemish. So there are a couple of possible conclusions we can draw from her look:

  1. Maybe Riri knows that popping a pimple (while tempting) is a no-no. 
  2. Maybe, the superstar is showing her skin as it really is – no filter, no concealer, no agenda.
  3. Or maybe, Rihanna is ready to launch a skincare line.

The majority of her fans believe it is most definitely the latter. 

"Rihanna's putting this pic with a pimple and some months later she will release Fenty Skin and prove how it cleared this pimple. A smart businesswoman, I stan," one user wrote.

"Fenty skin in beta testing I see," wrote another. 

While one fan had a theory that even convinced us this is happening.

But because this is the internet, there was someone just waiting to spoil the fun. Others zeroed in on her blemish. “Let me pop your pimple,” one fan commented, prompting a response from the star herself. “Let her have her shine, PLEASE,” Rihanna replied.

This, of course, isn't the first time a Fenty Skincare line has been teased. Back in April 2019, Page Six reported Rihanna had filed a trademark for Fenty Skin which had already been approved and will be sent to an attorney for further review - a process that may take up to three months to complete. 

We guess only time will tell...and given this is Rihanna we're talking about, we could be waiting an extremely long time.
