Rihanna has always been the queen of killing it–and her Fenty Beauty line is no different!

In terms of earned media valueher popular makeup line has been valued at $72 million in its first month!

According to Newsweek, this crazy impressive figure represents the potential value the new makeup brand would have raked in if one was to have paid for all the exposure on media platforms including social sites like Twitter, Instagram and YouTube. But here’s the deal: She didn’t.

There have been hundreds of beauty bloggers, influencers and everyday women writing or recording their own testimonials for free about how amazing these products are and how its 40 foundation shade range can match anyone’s skin. On Youtube, there have been roughly 132 million people (myself included) who have watched Fenty Beauty tutorials last month alone!

Clearly the singer’s massive success proves how powerful and profitable diversity can be.
