    Rihanna Named Her New Eyeliner After An Iconic Clapback And People Love It

    "Rihanna took a whole clapback from back in the day and turned it into a name for her eyeliner."

    Everything about Rihanna is iconic. I don't make the rules around here, facts are facts.

    And one of the most iconic things about Rihanna, other than her music and general existence on this Earth, is her clapbacks.

    When there's no changing the fact that I'm me, and they're well...they're them.

    Now that she's a little too busy being a queen, Rih doesn't clapback as much as she used to, but we still have fond memories.

    Good luck with bookin that stage u speak of

    Anyway, as you'll probably know Rihanna has a makeup line called Fenty Beauty. This is what us fans have to make do with until we get new music.

    And in a new release of products, Rihanna included an eyeliner, which is actually called "flyliner" because, y'know, it was invented by Rihanna.

    The flyliner comes in one colour – Cuz I'm Black.

    But this isn't the first time that Rihanna's given her products a name linked to clapping back. In January, Fenty Beauty global makeup artist, Hector Espinal, revealed to Refinery29 why Rih named a navy blue lipstick from her collection "Clapback":

    She's known for her social media clapbacks, and her navy [her fans] are always clapping back at haters, defending her and supporting her, so she decided to name this navy blue Clapback for them.

    Keep clapping back, Queen.
