Rihanna has been working on Fenty Skin as far back as March of last year when she filed a trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

“Skincare, it’s the truth. It either works or doesn’t. There’s nowhere to hide,” Rihanna says. The Fenty Skin trademark covers medicated and non-medicated skin care, soap, body care and personal care products (excluding colour cosmetics, perfume and other fragrance-only products), and related accessories such as kits, tools and applicators,” The star said in British Vogue interview.
