Issa Rae Is Throwing Major Shade at the Beauty Industry
Ever since she was named the new face of COVERGIRL last September, Issa Rae has made it her mission to work with the brand to make it more inclusive so that beauty lovers of all colors can find the products that work best for them. And in Rae’s latest COVERGIRL campaign for its new Exhibitionist Lipstick collection, she and her real-life pals go out for a night on the town in their own unique lip colors… and throw plenty of shade in the process.
The Insecure star has always been a self-described drugstore beauty lover, and in her COVERGIRL spot, she and three friends show off four totally unique but equally beautiful new lip looks from the line, which features a whopping 48 shades in three finishes — demi-matte, metallic and cream — that work whether you’re into a matte nude or a bold metallic black.
Each of the beauties pick out a lip color that matches their mood for the evening, proving that lipstick is the perfect way to be unapologetically you, giving every person the opportunity to rock the lip look that makes them feel confident and powerful.
There’s something for everyone in the range of hues that feature shea butter to nourish lips and a light vanilla scent for a formula that will last all night long. Available for $8 in drugstores and online, you can snag every single color now. And check out Rae and her pals throwing plenty of shade in their new lippies here.
