The singer has already enjoyed huge success with her Fenty make-up line and the star is now turning towards skincare after filing paperwork to trademark her new products, including one called Buff Ryder.

Rihanna has been working on Fenty Skin as far back as March of last year when she filed a trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

“She wants to make her millions with beauty and is planning a new skincare line to go alongside her Fenty cosmetics range. Fans' hopes for R9 will be kept on hold while Rihanna builds her beauty empire as she plots to become the next beauty billionaire,” a source told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column. Rihanna previously confirmed she was working on skincare brand earlier this year.

“Skincare, it’s the truth. It either works or doesn’t. There’s nowhere to hide,” Rihanna says. The Fenty Skin trademark covers medicated and non-medicated skin care, soap, body care and personal care products (excluding colour cosmetics, perfume and other fragrance-only products), and related accessories such as kits, tools and applicators,” The star said in British Vogue interview.
