NEW YORK, Oct. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- College fashionista, a Clique Media Group–owned global community, and Sephora Collection, a prestige cosmetics, skincare, and accessories LVMH-owned brand, have teamed up for their first-ever three-day mobile college truck tour stopping at three major campuses across the East Coast. Beginning October 17, the tour will feature products to achieve must-have beauty looks to help students get ready for any college experience or occasion. It hits the road at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., before making additional stops at St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Harvard Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
"Similar to college fashionista, Sephora Collection understands what Gen Z audiences crave as it relates to beauty," says Amy Levin, founder and creative partnerships director of college fashionista. "Our CF Clubhouse activation in New York this past summer was so well received and proved our shared audiences are unique and strong. By joining forces again, we are able to celebrate Sephora Collection's product offerings and expertise alongside college fashionista's editorial insight, this time through an interactive road trip."
By visiting the mobile truck and interacting with the Sephora Collection product application stations, students will gain exclusive access to several must-have beauty looks, including tips and tricks needed to achieve them. Armed with this new knowledge, students will be ready all of the fall semester's can't-miss moments, which they can share with family and friends on social media. They'll also have the chance to "uncomplicate beauty" with Helen Phillips, beauty expert and national makeup artist for Sephora Collection, who will be on-site leveraging her expertise for personalized makeup recommendations and IRL advice. What's more, students who visit each tutorial beauty station—think internship interview looks, fun night out, and dorm hang time—will also leave with a DIY sample bag to complete their new #beautyuncomplicated look.
At each college's stop, a select number of students from college fashionista's network, known as Style Gurus, will be invited to attend an intimate breakfast with Helen Phillips, who will provide a step-by-step tutorial for interview-appropriate makeup with Sephora Collection products. Following the breakfast, Style Gurus will have the opportunity to participate in a Q&A with college fashionista team members on career growth and development.
"Sephora Collection prides itself for having unparalleled product offerings across every beauty need, at accessible price points that cater to all skin tones and skill sets," says Elizabeth Hayes, vice president of Sephora Collection. "We know college students are interested in experimenting with different looks and testing the most on-trend products, and therefore, we want to be able to provide them with the tools they need to feel confident in their look every day. Sephora Collection is dedicated to making beauty uncomplicated and is thrilled to partner with college fashionista this semester and serve as a resource that inspires all students to learn and play with beauty as they start a new chapter in their journey."
To extend excitement around the mobile truck tour, college fashionista and Sephora Collection will launch a social sweepstakes where one lucky winner will receive $1000 toward Sephora Collection products and an in-store makeover for her and three friends. To enter, visitors of the truck just need to post using #CFBeautySweepstakes and tag @SC and @cfashionista to win.
