I’m a Cover FX Brand Ambassador. All opinions are my own.
Last Thursday I hosted an event for Cover FX in Orlando, FL. My friends Eugenia (you can see her recap here) and Amber came with me to Orlando. I have to admit, it was pretty cool to see myself listed as the featured blogger on the sign.
We had a lot of people show up to get color matched, which was exciting! Many of my friends and fellow Central Florida Beauty Bloggers came to the event.
For the event, here are the Cover FX products that I wore:
I also wore my stunning Bunny Paige Volcano Heart necklace that I recently purchased. (on sale until May 5th! Get it for 30% off!)
Vic Casale, me, Britney M
One of the coolest things about the event was that I got to meet Vic Casale. Vic Casale is an incredibly talented chemist. He created the MAC foundations (and foundation color system). He is the Chief Innovation Officer for Cover FX and he creates their foundations as well.
I also got to meet the powerhouse behind Cover FX’s social media, Britney. She coordinated everything and kept things running smoothly. I loved getting her insight into the brand. She also came to hang out with us later on!
Vic talked to me about the science behind my favorite Cover FX product – the CC Cream. It’s a time release product that releases anti-aging ingredients over 8 hours. I asked him about that technology and he explained that he uses synthetic beeswax that melts at different temperatures so that it will release over 8 hours, which is really cool. This is why I’ve never experienced a burning sensation with his foundation when I’m having a rosacea flare up, but I have experienced that with other anti-aging foundations in the past.
Vic also demonstrated with different base ingredients and how they look on the skin. This led into us discussing how Cover FX is cruelty free and all of their foundations are vegan. Over 20 years ago when Vic was with MAC he pushed for in vitro testing for cosmetics and he has continued to choose cruelty free testing methods for cosmetics for Cover FX. This really warms my heart!

Both the local Sephora staff and the Cover FX staff from Miami were really friendly and helpful.

I had my makeup touched up from the event by the talented makeup artist Lauren Massaro. She was hilarious! She was one of two makeup artists doing color matching for the event.

Some of my friends and Central Florida Beauty Bloggers who got color matched at the event! They were shade matching not only in the CC Cream, but in the Total Cover Cream and Liquid foundation, too.
Eugenia – me – Nidia
I’m not sure what someone was saying to Nidia to get her disapproval.
I love Brittany’s pops of bright neon yellow and turquoise with black.

Vic also spoke about the brand’s newest product, the BB Gel Mattifying Anti-Blemish Treatment. It’s PERFECT for oily skin! It’s available in 10 shades, just like the CC Cream. This is a product that I predict Eugenia and Jen (from My Beauty Bunny) will love!
Thanks again to everyone who could make it to the Cover FX Event in Orlando! We had a great time!

Yay thank you!
What a great event and opportunity for you!
It really was!
How exciting! I want to try this new product and the CC cream
I believe you can get the BB Gel now online
What a fun event.
It was a blast!
I am going to try your tip about applying powder before CC today! I am confused: are products that contain beeswax considered vegan? I thought not.
Hi! Synthetic beeswax, which these products contain, is vegan
Thanks! never knew there was such a thing
This looks like a fun event!
We really had fun!
Sounds like the event was a success!
I believe it was
I am envious of all the Florida bloggers! I’d love to attend a similar event. Now that I know that tidbit about Vic and MAC, I’m definitely interested in CoverFX!
Yay happy to hear it!

You’re such a rockstar!
I am so excited for you! It looks like you had a great time!
We really did
Congrats and thanks for the behind the scenes look at the event!
Congratulations on the event!! It looks like such an incredible time. I SO wish I was in FL lol! I’m really going to have to pick a few of the items up from Cover FX that you recommended. I loved to learn a little more about the brand!
I always tell everyone ‘check out the CC Cream!’
Congratulations!! Your makeup looks flawless!! I would really like to try there products!
This looks like so much fun! That is flipping awesome that your face is on that poster! Also, Nidia’s face looks more like someone farted and she just caught the whiff… which I guess could also be disapproval
OMG, LOL, Brooke! My husband and I are cracking up at this. I think I just found my new FB profile pix.
Thanks for letting me come with you to the event. It was alot of fun!!
I’m glad you had fun
What a fun event!! I like how Nidia is all contemplative up there haha!
My husband thought you were being kind, choosing ‘contemplative’ and not ‘confused’ or ‘lost’. LOL.
That’s so awesome and it looked like a lot of fun I love that your face was on the poster, I hope they let you keep that
I didn’t even think to ask!
How fun! I’d love to attend an event like this
You would have enjoyed talking with everyone!
Looks like a super fun event!
It was great!
This sounds like you all had so much fun!!
We really had a blast!
Looks like a great time was had by all! I wish I was a couple hours closer to Orlando!
I’ve waited long enough. What color do I buy in the CC Cream? I’m not quite as pale as you but I am pale.
Try N Light. It’s basically about a MAC N15-20. It’s too dark for me on its own so I just tweak it
I got a sample today. I also bought FaceA Zero Minus online tonight.
Yay! Let me know what you think
Looks like this was a successful event!
It really was
omg nidia’s face in that pic is priceless!
I have no words. LOL
LOL!! You could have cropped me out, girl. That’s hysterical. I had such a great time, and you were a rockstar!
No, you were way too srs in that shot
LOL on Nidia’s photo bomb!!! I would have loved to have been there with all my girlies!!!! I like my CoverFX cream foundation that I got last year at Sephora. It’s a very nice full coverage foundation.
We would have loved to have seen you!
Nidia, what are you thinking?!! LOL on the photo-bombing! Eugenia is so ready for her shopping too! Great event and I’m happy to see you host something like this.
Thank you! I had a blast!
this looks like such a fun and successful event. would love to have attended!
mad props to you! You are killin it.
Glad you had a great event! Loved your statement necklace and to see the support of fellow beauty bloggers. We have to stick together!
Really wish I could have gone! I was going to but then I found out one of my professors was hosting a retirement part for another professor in my department and I wanted to go! I hope you all had a blast!
You have perfect skin! I really want to try more cover fx.
I wish I could have gone! I just couldn’t bring myself to drive to orlando and back on a work night Looks like you guys all had a lot of fun though! I would have loved to meet Brittany and Nidia and see you and Eugenia again.
You’re famous now! I have never tried Cover FX, I want to try the CC cream though!
I’ve seen so many pictures from this event and how much fun !
