Hey — do you remember that Queen Latifah casting call last year? You know, the one where people stood in the snow waiting to be seen? The one that pissed a whole lot of beautiful black women off?
I got lots of e mails from bellas swearing they’d never buy the Cover Girl’s Queen Collection. Well, guess what? The peeps at Cover Girl learned from the experience. This year, the contest is entirely online. No waiting in the snow. No waiting at all!
If you’re an everyday women of color, ages 18-48, you could win. All you need to do is visit EveryWomanIsAQueen.com, upload a photo, and share a story about how you have gone against the odds to achieve greatness in your life. The contest is open until January 31. Queen Latifah herself will judge the online search, and select up to five winners to appear in an advertisement that will be featured in the June issue of Ebony magazine.
And for those of you who just want to know more about the MAKEUP, hang tight! I’ll be reviewing the newest products from the Queen Collection, Vibrant Hue Shine and Vibrant Hue Color, and offering a special giveaway early next week!
Just for fun, here’s a Friday jam. I love me some classic Queen La.
They don’t make ’em like that anymore! Happy Friday, bellas!!
