It's Kylie Jenner vs Rihanna in a battle of the makeup brands. Kylie Cosmetics reportedly generated a whopping $420 million in sales within its first 18 months.

Collins breaks down the main differences between the two brands' marketing plans. She also explains how more diversity in the industry--no matter where it comes from--is always good for the consumer.
