Topaz Mommy x Bobbi Brown Makeup Workshop

13 May

I arrived in Bobbi Brown Megamall (between Bldg A and Bldg B) 11 am sharp. There were mommies too, I assumed, my fellow winners/readers of Topaz Mommy, a blog by Ms. Frances A. Sales. We were all waiting and when Ms. Frances arrived, my jaw dropped. I whispered to my new mommy friend, Aubrey, “Ang ganda ni Ms. Frances!” She walked through the store, wearing a black tube top, black pants, pearl necklace and a bare face– simply gorgeous!

I love this Bobbi Brown store because it is beautifully arranged, and the products are so pretty!

We were doing some icebreakers and just chatting before the workshop started. We also took turns swatching which shade will match our skin tones.Ms. Frances gave out Leuchtturm notebooks (Php 1200) to each of us.


Bobbi Brown Manager also dropped in to say hi. Ms. Sam Sadhwani was also there! We did not know that there was a mini workshop room inside the Bobbi Brown flagship store! Ms. Tamara was the one who taught us about the basics of makeup application. The model, of course, was Ms. Frances!

This post is just going to be a brief one!

I started blogging because I was inspired by my favorite bloggers, Ms. Gem of RareVanity, Ms. Martha of The Beauty Junkee, Ms. Liz of Project Vanity, Ms. Julia of Bless My Bag, and Ms. Shen of Shen’s Addiction.

They are the bloggers that I admire for their credibility, creativity and professionalism. Not to mention, I met Ms. Martha once, Ms. Liz and Ms. Shen twice! They are all nice, friendly and accommodating.

This post is up to invite you to join Ms. Martha’s blog giveaway, The Beauty Junkee’s 5th Anniversary Ultra Super Mega Giveaway.

I Want To Be Part of Sample Room’s Bloggers Circle!

16 Apr

Ever since Sample Room‘s url came up, I have been a loyal customer. At first I was hesitant on the rules of sampling, but I got the hang of it. I even wanted to join their blogger’s circle last year, unfortunately, my blog is not yet a year old then… So I just let it pass and believed that I will have my time.

If you’re still new to this sampling thing, let me give you a rundown.


  1. Sign up here.
  2. You’ll receive 100 points upon signing up.
  3. Use the points on the samples available.
  4. Check out and choose your mode of payment.
  5. Pay the amount due (via bank deposit is my choice).
  6. Wait for your order to arrive… then get giddy upon receiving it.
  7. Use it continuously for a week or so. Then post a review on their site.
  8. Wait for your points to return. There is one point added for every review you made and one point if its posted.
  9. Do steps 3 – 8 for every purchase.
  10. You may order VIP for more chances of sampling new products!

I remember my very first purchase — Celeteque Dermoscience Collagen Gel. The sampling never stopped because the Sample Room team always make sure they offer new products now and then. They even offer products not yet available in the market! Amazing!

Here is a collection of all my Sample Room purchases here (random):

  1. Celeteque Dermoscience Anti-Wrinkle Collagen Gel
  2. Ahava Moisturizer and Moringa O2 lotion
  3. Gluta-C face and body soap
  4. Gluta-C intense whitening lotion
  5. Gluta-C intense Whitening Facial Moisturizer
  6. CarbTrim Iced Tea Mix-in

  8. C-Lium Fibre Capsules
  9. Celeteque After-sun Gel
  10. Colour Collection Vitamin E lipsticks
  11. White Result Exfoliating Gel
  12. Charm Powder Brush
  13. Vidal Sassoon Shampoo and Conditioner
  14. Celeteque Dermoscience Brightening Multi-Benefit BB Cream
  15. Nivea Sun Protect and Refresh Invisible Cooling Mist
  16. Moringa O2 Toner
  17. Moringa O2 Malunggay Hair, Scalp and Skin therapy Oil
  18. Godiva LicoWhite Whitening Lotion
  19. Colour Collection Age-Defying BB Cream
  20. BELO SunExpert Transparent Mist SPF50
  21. BELO SunExpert Body Shield SPF60
  22. Nivea Protect and Bronze Sun Spray
  23. SkinWhite Power Whitening Body Wash

Out of the 163 posts I have here in, 23 posts are products I got from Sample Room.

I am such a big fan of this company because they let people experience convenience – online shopping, trying out new products, sampling the available products, reviewing the products tried, reading other people’s review and help each other in the process.

Because of this, I would like to be part of SampleRoom’s blogger circle. I support their idea of reaching out to Filipinos, one sample at a time. Letting us try products first to see if they work for us before we splurge changed the way we think about shopping. Aside from teaching us the value of money, Sample Room proves that each one of us is beautiful and they are providing products that will help us enhance our natural beauty…plus it offers products suited for the whole family!
