Eye on Beauty with the Queen
Ever since Queen Latifah released her now iconic song “U.N.I.T.Y.” of the Black Reign album, I have been a fan. Sure, I didn’t really understand the meaning of the “bad” words (because I was young and my immigrant parents kept me very sheltered) but I did understand the message – keep strong and do not let anyone disrespect you. The message of the song is one that I have lived through. And, I have to thank the Queen for that. My loved for this force of nature was further strengthen when she took the role of Khadijah James on Living Single so it’s safe to say I am fan. So imagine my surprise when I discovered that Queen Latifah has had a Covergirl collection for ages and in fact has just launched a new collection the: COVERGIRL Queen Collection Lip Colors, which was specifically developed for women of color. Needless to say I was thrilled when I was offered the opportunity to try the colors. And, I got to say the colors are absolutely delicious, if you love Lipstick you will just adore this line.
The new line which was designed by beauty maven COVERGIRL Global Creative Design Director Pat McGrath, features 24 shades of lipstick in a series of browns, spices, nudes, shimmers, pinks, plums, wines, roses – in short there’s a color for every occasion day or night. If you are a busy gal, this should be your go-to lipstick collection. They look great but most importantly feel great (in fact I am writing this post wearing “regal raspberry” just cause!). You may just find yourself doing the same thing.
