A New Foundation: True Finish by Fashion Fair 2012

(Chicago, IL) — Hosted in the beautiful (and I mean BEA-U-TI-FUL) home of Johnson Publishing Co. President, Desiree Rogers Fashion Fair Cosmetics launched their newest addition to the collection, True Finish Refining Mineral Foundation.  I had the privilege to attend this event as my Mommy’s (Amy Hilliard) ‘plus one.’

Attendees included Cheryle Jackson, Andrea Zopp (formerly and presently of the Chicago Urban League respectively), Laura Mitchell and Niki Robinson (of STYLE Network’s Chicagolicious), Linda Johnson Rice (Chairman of Johnson Publishing Co.), Clarisa Wilson (President of Fashion Fair), and many more.

True Finish foundation is a new lightweight, refining mineral foundation.  True Finish is an illuminating and color adapting foundation using the unique Hue Harmony technology, enhanced with malachite to match your undertone and texture.  With celebrity make-up artists in tow, the ladies were given the opportunity to get a ‘makeover’ with this great new product.  Each shade is named with an attribute that describes the Black Woman.

CMJ Fashionista? … THANKS! ;-)

This blog post is more of a #SHOUTOUT than a post.

As you might have seen earlier in the posts, we did posts on Shinobi Ninja and JDP in conjunction with CMJ. BUT what I DIDN’T say… was that someone blogged about ME @ CMJ. LMAO. Who knew I was interesting to others? LOL. *Shrugs*

#SHOUTOUT to www.buisandwhistles.com‘s Andrew Bui for blogging about ya girl’s fashion sense at CMJ! I truly appreciate you and it was a pleasure meeting you! I figured I would return the favor and blog back because I have PICTURES of us TOGETHER! Check out these photos below… Please note the shirt I am wearing is one of SpokenFree ENT’s TryFacta Tee: “ENTREPRONEGRO” and it can be purchased via our website www.spokenfree.us in the shop. 😉
