BDJ Box Beauty Social: Camp Gorgeous Piandre

on October 11, 2014

I still can’t get over the BDJ Box Beauty Social event from last September 14, 2014, so I’m writing this post to highlight xtallicious & beapot’s Piandre beauty transformation experience. **better late than never, right?** ^_^

It’s a habit mine to look out for BDJ Power Planner and BDJ Box’s announcements on their upcoming events. The moment they posted the steps on how to pre-register to this year’s BDJ Box Beauty Social: Camp Gorgeous, I made it a point to pre-register the very same day. you know the feeling, when you know something reaaaal juicy and you can’t simply keep it a secret? I felt exactly that! So it’s only second nature to me to share the info to my Bella friends. And we were all so ecstatic to secure 2 beauty talks each. In case you’re curious, mine were: Beauty Prep with the BDJ Box Beauty MinistryMake Up Essentials with Bobby Carlos of Max Factor.

Here’s the line up of the beauty talks along with the event booths layout:

I have already had my mind set to arrive at the venue early so I can roam freely around the booths.. but things didn’t go as I’ve initially planned. Out of the blue we were asked to be at the branch for a routinary system testing in lieu with the recent system upgrades. My Plan B was to come early for work, so I can go home early too.. and yet again luck wasn’t on my side, among all the PCs mine was the least responsive with the system upgrades. On the verge of crying, I even cracked a joke saying my PC’s an oldie by heart and isn’t big on changes. (Makaluma PC ko, ayaw nya ng pagbabago) Lolz

Gratefully I got to leave the office by 12 noon, however with all the fiasco I ended up missing my first talk. Huhubels for missing my chance to see my fave BDJ Beauty Minister Barbi Chan. 😦 Still despite a quite heavy heart, I went on my way to SM North Edsa with my preggy friend King2x (xtallicious).

We arrive a lil’ early for our second talk so we decided to pass time by going thru the event booths and bumped into our fellow bella looking so fierce and fab with her make over. She highly recommended getting a make over at the Piandre booth so we made it a point to sign up on their queue before we lined up for the Make Up Essentials with Bobby Carlos of Max Factor.

As always, Bobby Carlos’ beauty talk is never dull and is jump-packed with interesting trivia, tips and tricks. My Favorite tip from him is how to gauge if you are indeed acidic. According to Bobby, you are acidic if  the fancy jewelries your wear easily discolors. In that case, I’m supeeeeer acidic coz’ my sweat can tarnish fancy jewelries in a matter of 3 days.

After the talk we went around the booths sampling what they can offer and learning more about the event brand partners. I asked xtallicious if we could stay the end of the event coz’ I’m hoping to win the L’oreal Pureology set which she happily obliged. While waiting for the end of the beauty talks we tried our luck and asked if we can still avail the Piandre Make Over. Luckily Piandre was more than happy to accommodate us.

While waiting for our turn we were happily chatting away cupcake goddess Aci Girl and was oblivious that my name was already called out as a raffle winner. Thankfully, my fellow #illbethere bella Nina heard Karen Bordador (Monster Radio RX93.1) call out my name and called out my attention to go up stage. It turns out I just won a GlamGlow YouthMud.

Finally, a slot opened at the Piandre booth and I offered it xtallacious so I could document her beauty transformation and my oh my she turned into blushing bride in matter of minutes.

During her make up transformation Karen Bordador started calling out the IG account names of the HOTD or Hair-Of-The-Day contest winners. And yipee for me coz’ I’m one of the lucky winners.

I’m so glad I didn’t let start of my day deter me from attending this event. We left the event a happier and gorgeous bella and our beauty make over was really amazing. Kudos to their make up artists for withstanding a long queue of BDJ Bellas waiting for their turn to get beautified during the BDJ Box Beauty Social: Camp Gorgeous that day. Their works of art are as strong as them. Would you believe our make up survived the wind & gust of Typhoon Luis? Amazing! Right? Haha my own HOTD didn’t fair as well though so pardon the messy hair.

Still gorgeous even after braving the rainy & gusty weather brought by Typhoon Luis.
