Queen Latifah and CoverGirl are at it again! With such a great response from last year's Every Woman is a Queen contest, they are teaming up to do it again this year! This year's contest is a little different. To enter, you don't have to travel to a city that's no where near you because it will all be conducted online! That's right!
Queen Latifah is looking for everyday women of color, ages 18-48, to appear in an advertisement for the CoverGirl Queen Collection. Those wishing to be considered can log on to http://www.everywomanisaqueen.com/ to submit an entry from January 10th - 31st. All who enter will be required to submit a photo and a brief statement about why they feel that they too are a “Queen.” Queen Latifah will judge the online search and will select up to 5 winners to appear in a CoverGirl Queen Collection advertisement that will be featured in the June issue of Ebony magazine.
Last year, the fabulous ads were promoting the Natural Hue cream foundation from the Queen Collection. You all know how much I raved about that! This year? Wonderful lipsticks- Vibrant Hue Shine and Vibrant Hue Color! Vibrant Hue Shine gives lips a natural, high-gloss look. Virtually a gloss in stick form. Vibrant Hue Color offers rich, luxuriously creamy shades that last.
I got to check them out for myself!
I'm more of the Vibrant Hue Color type of girl because I need color that packs a good punch! When using these, I would be sure to prime lips with moisturizer, concealer, lip primer, or whatever product you choose. The pigments may settle in fine lines, so give it a good canvas. Even though the Vibrant Hue Color lipsticks appear to be a touch matte, they are designed to lock in moisture by being infused with vitamins A and E and different emollients to keep your lips tender. Available in 12 rich shades. I can't wait to peek at the other colors available.
If you are more of the Vibrant Hue Shine type of girl, this lipstick may just be the formula for you. It's formulated with high shine properties to hold color and not disappear (or alter color); shiny brown should stay shiny brown. This lipstick offers 9 high shine shades.
I've been pleasantly pleased with the Queen collection line thus far and these additions keep up with the standard.
Give these babies a whirl, retailing at $5.99 a pop.
