Pop goddess Rihanna recently announced the debut of Fenty Beauty, which is happening Sept. 8. Now she’s also confirmed that there will be no fewer than 40 colors of foundation ... because black girls be tired of mixing to get the perfect shade.


Hello Giggles reports that a Rihanna fan account messaged the singer and got the news straight from RiRi’s mouth. When asked if it was true that the foundation includes 40 shades, Rihanna replied: “You knooowwww it! Gotta represent for my girls and we come in all shades! Especially my brown sisters … been left out too many times in the makeup world.”

And because Rihanna is the badass she is, the names are savage, too!
