SEPHORA and RARE BEAUTY announce the launch of the makeup brand Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez only available at Sephora
May 29, 2021: Selena Gomez celebrates beauty by launching her makeup brand, Rare Beauty, exclusively available at Sephora. The global launch will be on July 1st.
Selena’s passion for beauty products was born at a young age, from the moment she sat in her first makeup chair. Over the last three years, she channeled that love into the development of Rare Beauty. She wanted to create a beauty brand that goes beyond physical products, helps people feel confident, and celebrates what makes them unique. Selena openly discusses the “beauty myth” and the unrealistic expectations set by society that are impossible to achieve. She created Rare Beauty to challenge the beauty myth of physical perfection. Rare Beauty is about using makeup as a tool for celebrating what makes people different and get to a place of self-love and acceptance.
Rare Beauty products are designed for everyday self-expression, and each product has a unique sensorial story. Since the brand’s inception, Selena has been involved in every step of product development. Whether it’s testing each product or developing a design for the first-of-its-kind Blot & Glow Touch-Up Kit that’s convenient to carry, Selena has influenced every aspect. Rare Beauty’s Perfect Strokes Matte Liquid Liner is inspired by a calligrapher and is comprised of more than 1000 individual hairs. The complexion products include the Always An Optimist Illuminating Primer, Always an Optimist 4-in-1 Mist, and the Liquid Touch Weightless Foundation & Liquid Touch Brightening Concealer, which are each available in 32 shades to suit all skin tones.
The brand is also releasing With Gratitude Dewy Lip Balm in eight shades, Lip Souffle Matte Lip cream in 12 shades, Positive Light Liquid Luminizer in eight shades, Soft Pinch Liquid Blush in eight shades (four dewy and four matte), Brow Harmony Pencil & Gel, and three tools.
From the first Rare Beauty product sold onward, one percent of all sales, as well as funds raised from partners, will be dedicated to the Rare Impact Fund that aims to increase access to mental health resources. The Rare Impact Fund recently announced an ambitious goal to raise $100 million over the next 10 years to help address the gaps in mental health services for underserved communities, which will make it one of the largest known funds in support of mental health from a corporate entity.
