BDJ Box Beauty Soiree: Ready, Set, Gorgeous with Covergirl!

10 Feb

I was invited by the BDJ Box Team to attend their first ever BDJ Box Beauty Soiree. I have attended all the BDJ Box Beauty Socials and I felt that I just couldn’t pass this one out. Besides, I felt I was lucky to be invited.

It was a well attended event and I got to meet beauty bloggers like Ms. Donna of My Lucid Intervals, Celine of Product Arena and Kc of Kikay Si Kat ( who happens to be a schoolmate back in preschool!)

The event was sponsored by Covergirl Philippines. The brand recently released a new line named Ready Set Gorgeous. This line has 3 products — foundation (Php 495) , powder (Php 345) , and concealer (Php 395). Among these, other Covergirl items were used for the demonstration of Say.

The event was held last February 1 in The Open Space, Jupiter St. in Makati. It was an intimate gathering of makeup lovers. Say Tioco Artillero, a Filipina youtube guru, demonstrated a fresh makeup look using Covergirl products. I got to be seated in table 2, where I met new friends, Patty and Lyzelle! Hey bellas!

I wasn’t able to take nice pictures since a) the camera I brought had low battery and b) my Samsung phone was for repair. I only used Ipod touch4 so the quality of the pictures are not as high as the other two. Anyway, it was a fun experience!

The three products mentioned above are all for base make up. Aside from the three new releases, all of us present there were allowed to use other Covergirl makeup items from eyeshadow, mascara, eyebrow pencil, pencil eyeliner, blush, lipstick. Wipes, cotton, tissue and cotton buds were also there for us to erase the mistakes we made.r

I removed my makeup and tried the 3 new products. I forgot the shades I used but they were too light for me, but it seemed to blend nicely on my skin. I started with the Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous liquid foundation, then spot conceal my hyperpigmentation and undereye circles with Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous concealer. I used my fingers only in applying both products. I set the two bases with Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Pressed Powder. I applied the Covergirl Cheekers Blush 150 in Pretty Peach on my cheeks and Covergirl Eye Enhancer Eye shadow in Fard Accent (only the shimmery taupe) on my eyes. I used the Covergirl lipstick in shade 260 to finish the look!

Sadly, after this event, I had major breakouts! I am not sure if it’s because of a) the wipes provided, or b) my highly sensitive skin is reacting to a new product, or c) I started out with ocp (Diane 35). Anyway, there’s always the derma to work wonders again on zapping those zits away.
