Ariana Grande’s coming to take over your makeup drawer.
The “Positions” singer, 28, has been teasing the launch of her R.E.M. Beauty line in recently weeks, and finally unveiled the first offerings from her dreamy cosmetics line for Allure’s October 2021 issue.
“Coveting the secret for the past two years and having testers and samplers in my purse, and people asking me, ‘Oh, I love your highlight, what are you wearing?’ And me being, like, ‘I don’t know’, sweating,’” Grande told the mag. “It was so hard to keep a secret for this long.”
R.E.M. Beauty will release items in drops, beginning with eye products including liner, liquid shadow, glitter, mascara and eyelashes in Ariana-approved cat-eye shapes.
However, Grande also revealed that a tingling lip gloss is coming soon.
Though there have been no other details about release date, prices or actual shades, the pop star did say that she was heavily influenced by Nancy Sinatra, Barbarella and other ’60s icons.
As for her famous competitors in the beauty biz — like Kylie Jenner, Halsey, Rihanna and Kim Kardashian — Grande isn’t worried, calling the space “crowded” but noting that there’s room for all to co-exist.
“I’ve thought a lot about this, of course, because I don’t want to just hop onto any bandwagons ever. I think that … I wear my peers’ makeup as well, just like I listen to their music,” she said.
“I’m not going to say, ‘Oh, there’s too many female artists.’ I love and I’m [a] huge fan of my peers that do both, and I think that it’s just another way to tell stories. Because you can never have enough makeup, just like you can never have enough music.”
