Rihanna’s Purple Coachella Lipstick Sold Out Instantly After She Raved About It on Instagram—Get the Scoop!

Rihanna makes violet lipstain fly off the shelves

Forget punchy pink and red lipsticks for spring—Rihanna's got a thing for neon violet.

The singer posted a stream of snaps to Instagram with her new favorite lip color, and you better believe the vibrant gloss sold out in a snap after RiRi's rave review. The lipstain, by the way, is called Purple Haze from the brand Free Spirit, which is owned by Rihanna's friend Leandra.

The bold purple hue actually looks really, really good on Rihanna, and striking in contrast to her new red locks. Yep—that hair Rihanna's been sporting? Not a wig, like we wondered when we first saw the star filming a music video with a mass of coppery curls. (Also in the recent redhead club? Amy Poehler, who debuted a new auburn hue on April 7.)


One photo even shows the singer, er, literally taking a bite out of her tube.

"Thank you @leleboo_phucku2 for my new fav color #purplehaze!!! Finally!!! My own BFF has a makeup and I had to wait a whole year to get some!!! #FreeSpirits," she wrote alongside the snap. (Cue the fan frenzy to get a piece of #purplehaze.)


The star was spotted at Coachella in rich violet duds that matched her lip hue of choice, like a dramatic fur look she shared with followers on April 12.


We're really digging Rihanna's violet lip x red hair combo, but we wouldn't be surprised if the singer switched her pout preferences soon. Electric blue and jade green, anyone?
