Boots UK launches Fenty Beauty by Rihanna in stores and online
03 May 2019
Boots UK is excited to announce the launch of global beauty brand, Fenty Beauty by Rihanna, in selected stores and online as part of its plans to transform the face of high street beauty.
As one of the world’s most inclusive and sought-after beauty brands, Fenty Beauty is now available in 32 stores across the UK* and online at boots.com. A wait list is available so beauty-lovers can sign-up to be the first to buy** Fenty Beauty products and formulas that perform across all skin types and tones online, including those that are traditionally hard-to-match.
Boots is the UK’s leading beauty retailer and this launch marks a monumental milestone in its mission to reinvent its beauty offering and in-store experience. As a world-renowned brand that’s radically redefining high street beauty, Fenty Beauty is helping to power the transformation of Boots’ beauty offer.
Seb James, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of Boots, said: "For 170 years, Boots has been helping women to feel great by making beauty accessible to everybody right across the UK. Fenty Beauty by Rihanna could not be more in tune with our shared values of making everyone feel great, all of the time.”
“Launching Fenty Beauty is a pivotal moment in Boots' beauty reinvention as we reimagine and redefine what to expect from high street beauty. Over the next 6 months, we are launching over 20 new brands to become the top destination for global cult beauty for the 1.3 billion customer visits we have to our stores and digital channels each year***”.
To celebrate the launch, five Boots stores will host customer events across London Sedley Place Oxford Circus, Westfield White City, Glasgow, Nottingham and Newcastle from Friday 10 – Sunday 12 May, giving customers the chance to explore Fenty Beauty and make the most of exclusive Instagram areas. Beauty-lovers can also follow a full social media take-over across @BootsUK’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram channels.
From April, customers can experience new Beauty Halls in 24 Boots stores across the UK, which remove traditional beauty counters and replace them with trending zones, discovery areas and live demonstration areas. Along with 805 products launching in store and online during April and May, new Beauty Specialists will be on hand to offer unbiased advice across all brands, including Fenty Beauty – a first for the UK high street.
