Hameed continued, “My experience has taught me the importance of being unapologetically true to yourself. And that’s what this brand is all about. It doesn’t matter how much or how little makeup you wear. Beauty on your own terms is what it’s about.”
Amelia Gray Hamlin and Rinna Beauty have collaborated on a signature lip kit—Show Stopper—following their first collaboration on the Amelia lip kit in 2021. The lip kit features lipstick, liner and gloss in brown and gold tones.
The Notice Me lip liner comes in brown, Envy Me lipstick in cocoa and Glow Up lip gloss in gold.
The Show Stopper lip skit costs $45; available at rinnabeauty.com.
Lisa Rinna, founder of Rinna Beauty, said, “Show Stopper glamorizes brown in a sexy way that most people think is reserved for red, and makes gold your best friend. These tones come together in a chic, timeless style that dreams of a new golden age for beauty. Everyone can wear these colors, and everyone can be sexy. Everyone deserves to be sexy.”
Hamlin said, “Gold is a color that shines, and Rinna Beauty is all about making everyone feel like a star in their lives. Paired with a subtle cocoa brown, the Show Stopper lip kit steals the spotlight. Working with Rinna Beauty has been such a fulfilling, creative, and fun experience, and being able to do a second lip kit with my mom was something I could not pass up. We have such different, unique styles, but when they come together something beautiful emerges.”
Rinna continued, “Amelia has become her own woman, forging her own path with boundless curiosity, drive, and wisdom beyond her years. She fearlessly approaches beauty with such focus; it’s awe-inspiring. She dives right into our business and knows what the marketplace needs to move forward.”
