Coincidentally, the beauty brand holds a particular significance for the performer.

"I've been a fan of the iconic Revlon brand my entire life. In fact, my name comes from the Revlon Ciara fragrance," said Ciara. "It was a gift given to my mother from my father, and she fell in love with the scent and the name." 

According to Revlon, Ciara was the ideal candidate to rep the label because she "is a talented and accomplished artist, loving wife and mother and a model of female empowerment," said company president and CEO Fabian Garcia.
