Issa Rae Is So Much More Than Just the Face of CoverGirl

by April Roberts

Named a CoverGirl brand ambassador late last year, Issa Rae isn’t just modeling for the brand, she’s also helping them to develop products, like their new 48-shade lipstick line called the Exhibitionist Lipstick, which includes cream, demi-matte, and metallic lipsticks. The hues range from every shade of nude to blacks and purples, depending on how fierce you’re feeling.

“They let me really tap into who I am, and they never ask me to be anyone else,” Rae told Us about the collaboration, “I had a blast the entire time.”

In celebration, CoverGirl released a fun video titled “Shade for Shade” which features Rae in the car with her best friends, Megan Lawson, Devin Walker, and Abenet McMullen, on their way to a night out. Each woman wears a different shade from the collection that reflects her style and personality while they crack jokes and, well, throw shade.

“My character is ever-evolving, and makeup is a tool to help transform my persona — whether for a role I play in content that I produce, or the different roles I take on in my life,” Rae told The Cut.
