  2. Lee says:

    OMG!!!!!They really messed this one up. Queen Latifah is such a beautiful, and this photo does not project that, this is AWFUL. They airbrushed the HECK outte her face. She looks like she’s at a standstill, like botox. SUCK/FAIL.What’s going with Essence?!?! Somebody needs to intervene ASAP!
    Side-note: The bronzer in Ebony from her queen collection is the business!

    Holy photoshop batman! But seriously, they’re actually putting different people on the cover of Essence and not that same 5 people they usually do? Wow. Still won’t purchase it. Everything I get to wanting to purchase Essence, they always do something stupid like doing the most for self-hating black males (Reggie Bush, Old Spice Guy).

  13. Lola says:

    Love Queen Latifah, don’t like this cover.

  14. mtlveevee says:

    Yall have me CRACKIN up! Co-sign on the crazy eye and photoshop. Too bad–she’s so gorgeous in real life!

  15. Indigo says:

    I do not like Essence… I use to look forward to buying one off the newstand every month..But since there is a new owner,things are not the same. This is what all the covers and articles look like,,FAKE

  16. Tiffany W says:

    I’d like to see Queen Latifah’s hair…in a different style. Too much retouching.

  17. Roco-Coco says:

    Whoa. I came here to comment on the retouching too but everybody pretty much covered it. This pic looks like an avatar version of herself, a brown one. Wonder if it speaks Na’vi…

    PHOTOSHOP MUCH!! Wow, now this is airbrushing gone too bad!! SMH and she’s cross-eyed in this photo…wow
