Beauty Fit for a Queen!
The Queen Collection from Queen Latifah and CoverGirl
DivaVillage: Tell us about the Queen Collection. When was it launched and why was it created?
Queen Latifah: The CoverGirl Queen Collection launched in January of 2006. I created the line to offer women of color options to accent and highlight their natural features. The palettes of rich gem tones and vibrant colors are perfect for a wide range of skin tones. I am so proud to launch a cosmetics line created specifically to bring out the “Queen” in each of us.
DivaVillage: Why did you decide to team up with CoverGirl to create this makeup line?
Queen Latifah: I decided to create this makeup line with CoverGirl because I believe all women should be able to find beauty products that are tailored to fit their needs - without having to go to the department store to get them. To bring the Collection to life, I partnered with CoverGirl because they strive to meet the needs of women by consistently offering products that are easy to apply, fun to shop for, and offer the latest and greatest technology and on-trend shades.
Roxanna Floyd, Queen Latifah’s personal makeup artist, helped her create all the products in the line, which includes foundation, lip pencil, gloss, lipstick, eye shadow, eye liner, mascara and nail polish. The colors can be worn in a natural fashion or layered for more intensity. Women of all skin tones will have no problem finding wearable colors in this extensive line. I love the quality and price when it comes to CoverGirl products; I always know I’m getting good value and the latest colors, plus technological advances. Be sure to visit the CoverGirl website to experience their innovative colormatching feature, which finds the colors that suit you best!
