“Being rare is about being comfortable with yourself. I have stopped trying to be perfect. I just want to be me,” said the singer.

Launched last September, Rare Beauty is more than a beauty brand that sells beauty products. It is a mission-driven beauty brand that aims to “help everyone celebrate their individuality by redefining what beautiful means. We want to promote self-acceptance and give people the tools they need to feel less alone in the world”, as stated on their official website.

The brand’s inclusive positioning gained strong popularity among Gen Zs and Millennials.

“​I think Rare Beauty can be more than a beauty brand—it can make an impact. I want us all to stop comparing ourselves to each other and just start embracing our own uniqueness,” said the founder, Selena Gomez.

The Rare Impact Fund was launched with the goal of raising US$100 million over the next ten years to help increase access to mental health resources.

It will be exciting to see how Rare Beauty will do in the new markets.
