Celebrity beauty brands – level 1

20-03-2023 07:00

Fenty Beauty is a makeup company. Its worth is 2.8 billion dollars. This company belongs to singer Rihanna. Her company makes Rihanna one of the richest singers ever, not her singing.

Many celebrities want to do the same thing, for example, singer Lady Gaga or tennis star Naomi Osaka. They launch their own cosmetic, haircare, or skincare brands. They believe that they can be rich, too. People use these products every day. Advertising is cheap. It seems that nothing can go wrong. But these celebrities never become as successful as Rihanna.

After the pandemic, people buy more skincare than makeup. Many product reviews are on social media. People can easily find out if a product is good or not.

Difficult words: worth (for how much money you can buy something), launch (to start a business or project), advertising (making products known to people), product review (what someone thinks about a product which he buys or uses).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
