Rihanna's 'inclusive' makeup line sells out

'Created for women of all shades,' singer writes

(CNN) - When it came to her new makeup line, Rihanna had a "wild thought": inclusivity.

At the center of Fenty Beauty, which launched Friday, are 40 foundation shades receiving rave reviews for both their quality and range of color.

The thought is paying off.

As of Wednesday, six of the 10 deep foundations are sold out, illustrating the demand for makeup that caters to women of color.

"Fenty Beauty was created for everyone: for women of all shades, personalities, attitudes, cultures, and races," Rihanna wrote on Sephora's website, which sells the line exclusively. "I wanted everyone to feel included."

Fenty Beauty is eponymous of the singer's full name, Robyn Fenty.

Some are touting Rihanna's makeup line as a game-changer. Actresses Gabourey Sidibe and Mindy Kaling are also celebrating the beauty line.

"In case you're wondering about #FentyBeauty on dark skin, issa YES for me dawg," Sidibe tweeted.

"#FentyBeauty has got SHADES! Thank you @rihanna!!! Kween!" Kaling added.

Model Nneoma Anosike, one of 40 women displaying the range of available shades on Fenty Beauty's site, shared her thoughts on the line's significance.

"The beauty world for people of color has welcomed yet another brand that goes into understanding that we melanins have different undertones and shades," Anosike wrote on Instagram. "Not just 3 but multiple!"
