How many times have I said “I love you, Sample Room”? Hmmm…. I couldn’t quite remember but I’m sure it must have been a hundred times. If that wasn’t enough, I’ll say it again… I LOVE YOU, SAMPLE ROOM. 🙂
Last Saturday, I was one of the lucky few to attend Colour Collection’s exclusive event – all thanks to Sample Room. Aside from their partner bloggers, they also invited 10 VIP members to attend the event… so you see… being a VIP member pays off big time. 🙂
Colour Collection’s Hot Hues Event was held at Holiday Inn and Suites’ Oz Bar in Makati. The event was scheduled to start at 4PM but it ended up starting around 5PM, which is great since it took me 30 minutes to find the hotel’s parking area (LOL!).
When I got to the hotel’s roof deck, the first thing I noticed was the different shades of lipsticks on top of the registration table. Guests were allowed to try out whatever shade they wanted and, in my case, I just chose a slightly nude color. 🙂
The roof deck looked really nice. It was definitely a perfect place for private parties/events. Colour Collection and Sample Room did a great job in filling the area with things that are lipstick-related. In fact, even the paintings posted above were created using different shades of lipsticks. Amazing, right? The artist behind these creations is Ms. Sandy Villagracia. Oh how I love her paintings!
Two of the things that I was excited about were their free food and free flowing drinks. As always, my favorite was their roast beef. I asked for 2 slices and, truth be told, I still wanted to ask for more but I didn’t want to appear to have a voracious appetite so I didn’t… even though I really do have a big appetite. HAHA! Their lumpiang shanghai and chicken were also great. The pasta was kind of chewy but was manageable because I put loads of parmesan cheese on it. The roast pork tasted delicious when eaten with sauce but without it, the pork tasted somewhat bland. Overall, I enjoyed it. ^_^
Ms. Bianca Valerio was Colour Collection’s special guest. She shared several tips on how to properly apply lipsticks, how to create an Ombre look, etc. and she also introduced some of the brand’s newest lipstick shades. I really enjoyed listening to her because she was so funny. She had a way of making people feel interested with everything that she has to say. Bravo!
The best part about this event is, of course, the giveaway. I was over the moon when I saw what was inside the bag. It had 7 different shades of lipsticks, a lip therapy, a concealer, a blush & contour duo, some postcards, a pouch, and a mirror. Until now, I still can’t believe that I was fortunate enough to receive all these.
Feast your eyes on the following:
As if these weren’t enough, Colour Collection gave each of the guests another smaller pouch containing 3 shades of lipsticks. They know that most of the guests are bloggers so they gave us extra lipsticks to share to our readers, friends, and even family members.
I am truly filled with joy! With all the food I ate, the tips & tricks I learned, and the giveaway I got… I don’t exactly know how else I could thank Sample room so I’ll just keep saying “I love you, Sample Room”. Hehe!
For all those who didn’t get a chance to attend the event, don’t worry as I am sure that Sample Room will keep giving us wonderful surprises from time to time. Remember though that events like this is exclusive and therefore, not everybody will be invited. I encourage you to become a VIP member so that you’ll have a greater chance of landing a spot in at least one of their future events. 🙂
