Reba has grown to love the drag queens who dress up like her and perform her biggest hits in clubs across the country, but she was thrown off the first time she saw a man dressed up in Reba drag.

Reba tells The Advocate, “One night in the early ’90s, shortly after [my single] ‘Fancy’ came out, I had a gentleman at one of our fan club get-togethers we’d have, and he showed up in full regalia — total drag — and it really ticked me off because his hair and makeup looked better than mine!”

Unfortunately, Reba didn’t have time to get any tips from the drag queen because she had to go perform her show. She still sees Reba drag queens show up at her concerts from time-to-time, and it always gives her a thrill.  “Imitation is a huge form of flattery,” she says.

Now those drag queens can use Reba’s new cosmetics line, Reba Beauty, to achieve the right look. Check out the first offering, the Deluxstick lip gloss shade Fancy, at Reba.com/Reba-Beauty.
