Event: MakeUpLove Went To A Clinique Party with AskMeWhats!

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

I have been joining giveaways and contests for quite some time now. I don't care if  what is at stake are beauty products, cute stuff, or just discounts for certain brands. I am not just after the prizes itself, I also want the feeling of 'winning'. It has a certain personality booze on me. Like, "Hey, I won!' then I'll flip my hair. I know some of you understand this. The 'winning' moment was in me last May 18, 2011, (Wednesday) when Nikki Tiu of AskMeWhats emailed me that I am one of the 10 lucky Clinique Party joiners. I know it was not a contest nor a giveaway, I still felt like I won...bigtime! And to date, this was my first time to win in a some kinda contest/giveway or whatever you want to call it.

Last May 17, 2011, Nikki Tiu of AskMeWhats posted a bulletin on her blog regarding a Clinique Party for her AMW readers on May 21. Good thing I follow The Queen of Beauty Blogging in the Philippines through email and I get notified every time she has a new post. Call that stalking, I call it love. Haha. Okay, so I was notified when she posted the AMW Bulletin: Clinique Party for AMW Readers! Oh my, you could not imagine how fast I typed in my name and email address on the comments section just to be a part of the lucky 10. There were only 10 slots and the first 10 comments will be joining the party. I already saw about 6 comments on that time which meant there were only 4 slots left. I still took the chance and I got in!

May 21, 2011 -- Edge, the ever supportive boyfriend, insisted to tag along so he could take pictures  of me and the event while I am busy chatting and party-ing. He knew how excited I was for this event and I would love to keep the moments.  I was in Rustan's Makati 15 minutes earlier than the 2:00 PM call time. I grabbed some snacks to pacify my hungry tummy. I hadn't eaten lunch because I was afraid to be late. When I went to Clinique stall, I was greeted by Ms. Nikki's huge smile. I literally wanted to jump of excitement when I saw her. The fan in me went giddy. I was later on introduced to Ms. Mira Villanueva, the Marketing Manager of Clinique Philippines.

Snacks from Bizu were served. I loved the Blueberry Cheesecake! :)

There was a skin consultation for each of the 10 party joiners. I was 5th or 6th on line so I checked the Clinique make up counter while waiting.

When it was my turn to have my skin consultation, I found out that I have dry-combination skin. All the while, I thought I have just DRY skin.

My foundation was removed for me to try out one of  Clinique's foundation.
To tell you honestly, I was really amazed on how the products turned out to be on my face. Everything did pretty good. I specifically love the Dramatic Difference Moisturizing Lotion (DDML) and the Supermoisture Foundation. Now, I have decided to change my skincare routine and that will obviously include DDML . I will definitely save up to have my hands on those lovelies. They are quite pricey but are very worth it.

To try out some of their products, Clinique Philippines was so generous to give each of us sample products. The products given out were based on our skin type. I will make a separate post to give my insights about the products given to me.

I enjoyed every second of my first blog event. I hope to soon be a part of other blog events.

L to R: Marge, Ms. Mira, Iya, Me, Ms. Nikki, Alice, Trixie, KatBau, Rhona, Issa, and Kessa.
 Please don't forget to check out their blogs too. :)
 * Noticed how dark I was beside these ladies? Their skin were so radiant and luminous!

Thank you, Ms. Nikki for the invite. That was one fun-filled Saturday afternoon. I hope to be part of your events and make-up gigs (kahit alalay lang).

Thank you, Clinique Philippines for the chance. I promise to go back. Please have a huge sale on your products. Teehee!

Dearest Edge, thank you as always. I ♥ u!

Till next event!
