BE QUEEN FOR A DAY…
COVERGIRL QUEEN COLLECTION COSMETICS AND LIMBO 41414 GIVE USERS THE CHANCE TO SEE HIP-HOP AND HOLLYWOOD ROYALTY’S QUEEN LATIFAH PERFORM LIVE IN CONCERT

In an Exclusive Series of “Limbo” Games the Mobile Entertainment Pioneer Awards
Three Grand Prizes that Also Include a Year’s Supply of Queen Collection Cosmetics

(Burlingame, Calif.) – June 6, 2007 – All hail the Queen! CoverGirl Queen Collection Cosmetics and mobile entertainment pioneer Limbo 41414 team up to offer a one-of-a-kind prize package fit for a queen! Limbo will host three separate month-long Limbo games – aptly entitled “Every Woman is a Queen” – that will provide aspiring royals a chance to win a trip for two to see Grammy and Oscar-nominated hip-hop artist Queen Latifah perform live in concert this fall, sponsored by CoverGirl and American Airlines. In addition to this crown jewel of a prize, the three lucky grand prize winners will also receive an autographed copy of her upcoming jazz-inspired album Trav’lin’ Light (in stores September 25) plus a year’s supply of the CoverGirl’s bestselling Queen Collection cosmetics! Plus, as if living the life of royalty weren’t enough, Limbo will award additional prizes daily, including copies of Queen Latifah’s eagerly anticipated new album and samples from the Queen Collection. The first of the three games is now live, and all mobile users have to do is simply text message the word QUEEN to 41414 or visit www.41414.com to play online.

Limbo is an addictively fun game – played via text messaging on a cell phone or online. Limbo is distinct from any other experience in that the winner is the person that picks the lowest number that no other player picks, or the lowest unique number. It encourages players to stay highly engaged during each round as they receive comments and tips regarding their picks (e.g., “you’re the lowest unique,” “your pick is unique but not the lowest,” etc.).

Since launching in January 2006, Limbo has rewarded more than 650 Limbo winners, awarding more than $530,000 in prizes. To learn more about Limbo and see all of the current live Limbo games, visit www.41414.com.

Queen Latifah has shined as the official spokesperson for Covergirl’s Queen Collection cosmetics since 2006. Hailed by the hip-hop world and by Hollywood, Queen Latifah first made a name for herself in 1989 with the groundbreaking hip-hop album All Hail the Queen, establishing herself as the first female rapper to become a bona fide star. In the years since, her popularity has transcended all forms of media, thanks to her crossover success in such hit films as Jungle Fever and Chicago, in which her role as Mama earned Queen Latifah both a Golden Globe and an Academy Award nomination. In 2004, the artist returned to her musical roots to release a jazz collection of standards entitled The Dana Owens Album, which included collaborations with Herbie Hancock and Al Green. This September’s Trav’lin’ Light will further showcase Queen Latifah’s musical talents and passion for jazz.
