Aida Cosmetics Launch Party

Last night I had the pleasure of attending the Aida Cosmetics Launch Party at the Spot Bar near downtown L.A..  Aida cosmetics is the brainchild of Aida Danielle, a former french model.  Her partner is Amberly Olguin, who joined the company in 2011.  The Aida Cosmetics brand is about quality products at affordable prices so that every woman can feel beautiful.

The big news: Aida chose celebrity Chenese Lewis to be the face of the brand for its national launch of the Confidence & Glamour campaign.  Last night Ms. Danielle explained that so many beauty brands use straight size models to promote their products, and that using a plus model like Chenese was a perfect way to let consumers know that beauty comes in all sizes.  Ms. Lewis was absolutely stunning in a long black gown that hugged her every sexy curve.  

The event was lovely. There was a beauty bar, where I got to try on luscious lip gloss and an eye shadow called Green Eyed Lady.  It was a fun evening and a chance to mingle with the Los Angeles plus size community.  Angela Rene' of Purple Diva Designs was there looking gorgeous as usual.  My pal Jana'e Holmes of Naturally Kinky Curly was also in attendance.

So, keep your eyes peeled for the new campaign and be sure to try out all the fun products which are:
  • Manufactured in North America
  • Hypoallergenc
  • Fragrance Free
  • Allergy Tested
  • Non-comedogenic

Ciao for Niao,
