The other day, I went to the Sephora in the Mall At Millenia in Orlando, FL for a very special event presented by Cover FX and hosted by fellow Beauty Blogger of Central Florida, Phyrra Nyx.
It's awesome to be so welcomed to an event, and the sponsors, Vic Casale and Britney Munguia of Cover FX were pretty amazing. Britney even came out to dinner with some of the BBCFL afterwards!

I found this awesome little (about a minute and a half) video that explains how Cover FX was born. It's pretty inspiring!
Then, Vic started talking about how women over 40 were having a new skin concern where they would get blemishes, treat them with the same harsh products they used in their youth, and end up making the problem worse.

Hello, that's me! He said they were coming out with a brand new product, BB Gel, directed at those who have oily (and often, sensitive) skin and are getting breakouts - but need gentler, yet still effective ways to deal with it - without damaging our aging skin.
You betcha I ordered that product the minute I got home.
I asked them to act as if they were just talking, and I was taking a candid photo. Yeah, that worked!
I really enjoyed my experience getting color matched for Cover FX CC cream. I'm a P Light-Medium, which means I have pink, or cool, undertones, and light skin. My makeup artist, Andrew, was a hoot and a holla, and really made the experience so awesome.
Eugenia from Genia Be Me, Brittany from Clumps of Mascara. and me, all color matched!
Doesn't Mina's skin look flawless?

They had goodie bags for the first 30-or-so people to get color matched, and I received a primer with SPF 30, and a matte powder in medium.
My first impression of the primer is that it is just about the best one I've ever tried. It's a clear gel that dries down to a matte finish. It was suggested to me that I use the powder more for contouring, but maybe if I get a bit of a tan... (oh, who are we kidding.)
I'll be testing out these products, plus the BB Gel and the foundation brush I bought, and hopefully the CC cream, too.
If you want to see the absolutely best pix taken of me at this event, you need to head over to Phyrra's blog to see her recap of the event. Eugenia has a video and her take on the event on her blog, too.
