Celebrity skincare and makeup brands have always been a thing. Model Iman launched Iman Cosmetics, the first complexion brand for women of color in the early ’90s. Over the years, stars such as Jennifer Lopez, Selena Gomez and the ringleader of it all, Rihanna, have made celebrity beauty a social norm.

There are tons of questions for the celebrities who launch these buzzy brands. Are they really in tune with the product launches? Can they break down the ingredients? Do they use their brand? One can only guess, but at this point, it is safe to safe that the celeb beauty space is wholly oversaturated with unnecessary products in an area where many other indie/emerging brands struggle to scale when they have an actual story to tell through the launches.

Trust us, we know how hard it is to decipher what’s worth the spend and what isn’t, especially regarding your favorite celebs. Luckily, we’ve done the hard work, so you don’t have to and compiled a round-up of all the quality celebrity beauty brands that are worth your money and who you can trust in the beauty space.

RihannaFenty Beauty/Skin


When Fenty Beauty/Skin came onto the scene, the atmosphere changed for the better. Not only was Rihanna involved in all of the processes from beginning to end, she singlehandedly was the blueprint for celeb-owned brands to follow regarding effectiveness and inclusivity.

Selena Gomez hit the beauty space in 2020 with Rare Beauty. Although the celebrity makeup fatigue was settling in, Gomez defied the odds and set the brand apart with its ethos of true community, specifically mental health, which is one of Gomez’s core focuses.
