You don't have to be a Rihanna fan to covet the RiRi Hearts MAC Fall collection, available at the end of this month in MAC boutiques and online. Gorgeous lip shades, rich, wearable eye palettes, alluring skin finishes, sexy lashes plus metallic rose gold packaging... trust us, you want. Here's a preview of what you want to put on your September 26th shopping list:
This Rihanna MAC collab is one of the most appealing celeb collections we've seen maybe ever.
