How Much Is Rihanna Worth? After Fenty Beauty Launch, Singer's Net Worth Will Probably Skyrocket

Everything Rihanna touches turns to gold. Better yet, everything Rihanna touches turns to green, and she’s got the bank account to prove it.

After selling more than 230 million albums, winning a slew of awards, appearing in ad campaigns and winning big with ambassadorships for some pretty swanky designer brands and even some apparel collections of her own, the pop star is worth about $75 million, according to Forbes. But more than likely, the Bajan singer’s net worth will skyrocket following the launch of her newest business venture, Fenty Beauty.

Rihanna, who has had a longtime love affair with makeup, launched her beauty collection online at midnight Friday. It features 91 variations of products, including foundation for just about every skin tone and color, concealer and correcting sticks, blotting powder and papers, highlighters, shimmer Match Stix and one single, universal lip gloss. The collection will also include makeup brushes and tools.

Items under the brand’s umbrella range from as low as $16 to $54 and will be available at Sephora stores in 150 worldwide locations as of 7:15 p.m. ET Friday.

If Rihanna’s history with the fashion industry is any indication, fans shouldn’t expect the first round of Fenty Beauty products to last long. When the “Wild Thoughts” singer first teamed up with Puma—she was named the athletic brand’s creative director in 2014—her first sneaker from the partnership, the Fenty Puma Creeper, became the most sought-after shoe of 2016.

The first release of the Creeper, which debuted in September 2015, sold out in three hours. When the $135 sneaker was brought back in May 2016 for a third release, it sold out in 35 minutes, leading to Rihanna’s first sneaker design winning Footwear News’s Achievement Award for the 2016 shoe of the year. Buyers’ high anticipation for more Rihanna-designed goods resulted in the 29-year-old debuting her first official collection of streetwear, dubbed Puma by Rihanna, in September 2016.

The collaboration has proved to be highly lucrative for Puma and the singer, bringing the company almost $1 billion in sales by the end of Puma’s fourth quarter, according to Bloomberg.

There’s no doubt that her entrance into the $121 billion beauty industry will be even more profitable. Rihanna inked a $10 million deal with Kendo Brands to launch Fenty Beauty, but more than likely, sales will surpass that.

This isn’t her first time dabbling in the beauty industry. In 2013, the Anti singer teamed up with MAC Cosmetics to release lip products, bronzers, powders, and eye shadow palettes, which were so popular with fans, she was asked to collaborate with the beauty brand twice more, in 2014 and 2015.
