It’s true, celebrities are busy people. They have to deal with their main line of work, paparazzi, and fans all day. That being said, some of them have managed to launch their own products and business lines.
The celebrities who do this are indeed something else for finding the time to build something from scratch, and usually their products are high-quality too!
Here are the top 10 celebrities who launched a product!
Let’s dive right in.
1. Hugh Jackman
Famous for playing the Wolverine from X-Men and Jean Valjean from Les Misérables, Hugh Jackman is a household celebrity name.
He is constantly working on new projects. It might surprise you to find out, then, that he runs his very own coffee business.
Hugh Jackman founded Laughing Man Coffee and Tea to keep a promise he made to an Ethiopian coffee farmer named Dukale. Since its inception, it’s grown from just producing coffee and has many actual coffee shops around New York!
So the next time you’re strolling around Manhattan, grab a friend to have a friendly coffee chat in one of Hugh Jackman’s Laughing Man coffee shops.
2. Jennifer Aniston
If there’s one thing that’s always spot on about Jennifer Aniston, it’s her near-perfect hair. From her iconic “Rachel” cut from friends to her messy waves from more recent times, fans have always wondered how she treats her hair.
Now, she’s finally delivering with her own brand new haircare product line, LolaVie. LolaVie’s hair products will let her fans emulate her in the best way possible.
As of now, there is just one product out: an all-in-one de-tangler! It is free of any artificial ingredients! But Aniston promises that there are more to come.
3. Kylie Jenner
Kylie Jenner is famous for being a model, social media personality, and TV star… but she’s perhaps even MORE famous for being one of the youngest celebrity billionaires and making the cover of Forbes in 2019.
Indeed, it’s hard to become a billionaire just off of fame alone. Kylie’s fortune has come partly from her modeling work but mostly from her cosmetics line: Kylie Cosmetics.
Providing fans with everything from lip kits to eyeliner to highlighter, Kylie Cosmetics has got you covered in the facial department.
4. Post Malone
Post Malone is known worldwide for his pop and rap songs, but few people know that he owns a wine company.
In May of 2020, Post Malone launched his very own line of French rosé wine, called Maison No. 9, named after his favorite tarot card, the Nine of Swords. Within two days of being made available for sale, it sold out.
Each year Maison No. 9 comes out with a new bottle, and they’re even starting a side business line of merchandise to go along with their drinks.
5. Millie Bobby Brown
Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown may just be 17 years old, but she already has her own business up and running. Florence by Mills is a beauty line dedicated to Gen-Zs and created by the young star.
The awe-inspiring thing about Florence by Mills is that, unlike other beauty product lines, all the products by Florence by Mills are PETA-certified, vegan, and cruelty-free. This is due to Millie’s love of animals and willingness to go the extra mile to align her business with her philosophy.
Today, you can go on Florence by Mills’ website and shop their Zero Chill Face Mist, Get Glossed Lip Gloss, and Buil to Lash Mascara.
According to Forbes, Rihanna has amassed a casual net worth of over $1.7 billion. How did this popstar do this? Partly through her fantastic songs, albums, and partly due to her beauty product line, Fenty Beauty.
Fenty Beauty is unique in that it provides skincare products for all different skin tones. Launched in 2017, it has been a smashing success and has gained popularity worldwide.
Check out Fenty Beauty’s website for all kinds of foundation, concealer, and blush guaranteed to work for you.
7. Michael Cammalleri
Ex-captain of the Canadian ice hockey team, the Montreal Canadiens, Cammalleri, has had an outstanding career on the ice.
What’s super impressive, though, is that not only was he an excellent hockey player, he’s also an extremely successful businessman. His company is called BioSteel, and it makes nutrition products for athletes of all sorts, supporting golfers, soccer players, and football players alike.
Notable athletes who use BioSteel include Connor McDavid, Hunter Mahan, Sean Lee, Marcus Stroman, and Jordan Spieth.
8. Ariana Grande
Known for her pop songs, Ariana Grande also has her line of perfume called Ulta Beauty.
The top perfumes from Ulta Beauty include Ari By Ariana Grande Eau De Parfum, Ariana Grande Sweet Like Candy Eau De Parfum, and Moonlight By Ariana Grande Eau De Parfum.
These perfumes will have you smelling your best and saying “thank you,” but never “next.”
9. Ryan Reynolds
Funny, handsome, and wildly successful, Ryan Reynolds is a name that almost everyone knows. This Canadian actor is famous for Deadpool, Free Guy, and The Hitman’s Bodyguard roles.
He also owns his very own American gin company, Aviation gin. If you go on their website, you can see Ryan Reynolds describe the painstaking process of creating the gin from scratch, and you might think to yourself, “there’s no way a celebrity gin can be good.”
Well, national publication Wine Enthusiast gave Aviation American Gin a 97-point rating in 2012, the highest the magazine has ever given to any gin… it turns out Reynolds can run a liquor company too.
10. Justin Timberlake
Famous for his acting/ singing career, Justin Timberlake also has his line of clothing called William Rast.
Launched in 2005, William Rast provides clothes that model their style after fellow Memphis native Elvis Presley. When asked about it, his co-founder Juan Ayala said, “Elvis is the perfect mixture of Justin and I.”
Since then, it has grown significantly, and today, you’ll find William Rast collections in your very own Target.
