VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE: Covergirl Celebrates Its Fabulous Fall 2018 Collection At A Preview Event With Fun Photo-booths, Lip-stick Readings And More!

11 May


Covergirl is by far one of the most respected and renowned makeup brands out. It exudes such class and elegance and encourages makeup users to be confident in the skin they’re in. Whether you’re rocking a natural look or some vibrant, bold and beautiful colors, Covergirl has the perfect products to make your makeup look #OnFleek. Covergirl celebrated its Fall 2018 collection with a special preview event that took place on May 8, 2018 at a private home in Los Angeles, California. The event was absolutely luxurious and showcased what has to be Covergirl’s best collection yet.

As soon as celebs and beauty influencers entered in the Covergirl house, they were welcomed with tons of ravishing Covergirl goodies. Inside the Covergirl house was a spectacular pool adorned with fantastic balloons and Covergirl’s new brand campaign “I Am What I Makeup.” The remarkable event had an endless amount of excitement at every turn. In one corner, there was a super cute Covergirl mirror where attendees were able to leave their mark in lipstick style by signing their name on the mirror using one of Covergirl’s many lipstick shades. Right by the mirror was something every guest was gushing over – the opportunity to get their lipstick read! Yes, you read that right. Attendees put on some lipstick and got ready to pucker up on a piece of paper. Once they gave their sheet a smooch, they were able to get their lipstick read and learn qualities about themselves they may have never known could have been read just off that pretty lipstick / lip shape of theirs.

Of course, a sensational event like this calls for many wonderful photo-opps and the Covergirl event definitely had a ton of them. In one photo-booth, attendees were able to lay like a #QUEEN on a bunch of pillows that represented the shades of Covergirl’s new line of foundation. Guests were able to strike their poses and look oh, so stellar in their very own keepsake photo from the night. In another room, attendees were able to werk the camera with a fifteen second video made inside a black and white geometric room. Needless to say, guests were totally camera ready for all of these awesome snapshots.

Senior Vice President of Covergirl, Ukonwa Ojo was at the event to emphasize that indeed, we ALL are Covergirls. She had a marvelous time celebrating this exceptional, new collection and recognizing all of the Covergirls who radiate their beauty both inside and out. Ukonwa Ojo is truly a pioneering figure in the beauty world and she will definitely continue to bring a lot of magnificent innovations to the makeup industry.


Other celebrities who attended the event include Serayah McNeill, Draya Michele, Shelina Moreda, Kandee Johnson and many others.

To add onto all of the fun, there was a stellar DJ at the event blasting some of the greatest, hit songs. In addition, there was also delicious food including mini burgers and yummy desserts including macaroons (macaroon lovers would have been in heaven) and other scrumptious treats. Plus, guests were able to enjoy super yummy cocktails and drinks made right on the spot.

I, Alexisjoyvipaccess had an incredible time attending Covergirl’s Fall 2018 collection preview event. It certainly was one of the most unforgettable nights for all makeup enthusiasts. You’ll be left on Cloud 9 with all of Covergirl’s new items in this collection – you’ll definitely want to put everything on your wishlist.

I, Alexisjoyvipaccess had the greatest honor of covering the renowned and prestigious 2016 NYX FACE Awards! Check out some VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE pictures I took from my coverage of the event and stay tuned on for interviews with Ingrid Nilsen, PatrickStarrr, Ve Neill, and Chloe and Halle. Here at, I’d like to send a big congratulations to all of the contestants and the final six for all of their hard work and to Laura Sanchez for winning the competition!

Also, a big thank you to NYX Cosmetics for the outstanding gift bag! I’m so excited to up my makeup game with all of the terrific products including the awesome #LOTD Lip Of The Day (liquid lip liners) that will make everyone’s lips so luscious. I’m also thrilled to use the first base primer and the Dewy Finish long lasting setting spray to make my makeup look last for hours especially when I’m on the red carpet. The setting spray works perfectly to keep your makeup in place and it is definitely a must-have. I also love the NYX shine killer – whether it is super hot outside or if your skin is having more of an oilier day than normal, the shine killer will help you relieve all of your makeup stresses and will keep you looking top notch. My other faves are the contour duo palette as well as the fun NYX face and body glitter (you know what they say, “When in doubt, just add glitter.”) I’m totally obsessed over the color NYX liquid suede cream lipsticks that add an extra pop to your makeup look. Lastly, the NYX pore filler is something everyone should get as it is a life-saver when it comes to minimizing the appearance of pores. Thanks NYX, I am in love with your products and all of these goodies!

Destination: makeup heaven, route: Beautycon LA! The trending topic on every social media platform you could think of was the one and only, renowned event, Beautycon LA, which took place yesterday, July 9, 2016 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, California. Beautycon LA was basically every makeup lovers’ dream come true. With various booths lined up with some of our favorite brands bringing out their new products, to fabulous panels and tons of wonderful opportunities to get up close and personal with your favorite celebrities, beauty gurus, and influencers, Beautycon LA was one of the most outstanding and sensational events ever!

As soon as you arrived at the venue, thousands of excited Beautycon attendees were lined up to have the time of their lives at the event. This year’s Beautycon LA was bigger and better than ever, and what better way to have kicked off this incredible makeup celebration than at an even larger location! A bigger location means a lot more space for all of your favorite brands to have their booths at the event. Brands including NYX Cosmetics, Wildflower cases, Garnier, QVC, Maybelline, Pop Beauty, Pixi, Gardein, Splat, Nike, and more were there to bring extra fun to the event. Radio Disney was also at Beautycon LA.

AwesomenessTV also had a lot of awesome activities for Beautycon attendees to take part in. Attendees were able to audition for AwesomenessTV and even join the AwesomenessTV squad and get some excellent swag to walk away with. Everyone also enjoyed signing the famous AwesomenessTV chalk board during Beautycon LA.

In addition to all of the makeup magnificence that was at the event, another thing that makes every Beautycon oh, so special is all of the amazing special guests that attend the event. In attendance at this year’s Beautycon LA included Tyra Banks (we were ace-ing our smize before Beautycon LA took place!), Ashley Tisdale, Kelly Rowland, Christina Milian, Kandee Johnson, Asia Monet Ray, the Merrell Twins, Jillian Rose Reed, Mia Stammer, Alisha Marie, Kelli Berglund, Sixx Orange, Chloe Lukasiak, Dorothy Wang, Lele Pons, Madisyn Shipman, Karrueche Tran, Sierra Furtado, Jillian Rose Reed, Courtney Love, and many, many more.

Many celebrities, beauty gurus and influencers had a great time participating in the Beautycon LA panels including “How To Be A Bad Bae,” “The Changing Face of Beauty,” and more. Singing sensations Jack and Jack got everyone dancing and singing along to their extraordinary Beautycon LA performance. Other celebrities and influencers had a great time during several meet-and-greet opportunities with their fans.

As you can see, in just one day, Beautycon LA had an immeasurable amount of exciting things happen. Beautycon LA and all Beautycon events bring an overwhelming amount of happiness to all attendees and continues to be such a remarkable, surreal and unforgettable event for everyone to go to. Whether you’re the ultimate makeup queen or wanting to learn more about the makeup world, whether you are going to meet some of your favorite celebrities or to buy the latest makeup products – Beautycon is an event that is perfect for everyone to go to. Beautycon brings together people who share the same love for beauty, fashion and makeup and is a terrific, safe environment for everyone to join together and celebrate what they love most! It’s also a great place to make new friends!
