You can already dress like Rihanna and smell like Rihanna, but soon, you'll be able to make up your face like Rihanna. Last year, the singer quietly trademarked "Fenty Beauty," and Refinery29 asked RiRi about the move at her perfume launch yesterday.

Rihanna was surprised to hear that the site knew about her secret trademark, but reassured fans that, yes, it's happening. She said:

That is definitely something I am going to have my hands on and would love to do. It's something that I've always wanted to do, but I've always had so much on my hands. But this time, I'm going to make sure it happens. I'm going to find some time between albums and fragrance to do that. I promise.

When Refinery29 asked what her dream product is, Rihanna responded, "Lashes that could just put themselves on...lipstick that doesn't move, but doesn't dry your lips out, that you don't need a liner for. I mean, it sounds so unreal." There you have it folks, Fenty Beauty, a makeup built for superheroes.
