Event: BDJ Box Beauty Social Tres Chic

Last Sunday, I attended my very first beauty event at SM Aura. It took me some time to decide since I don't know the place and our school's recognition day will be held the day after the event. I still pursued to go because I want to go far  because of heart problems I encountered during those times! I won't tell you in details. Haha.

Anyway, BDJ Box Beauty Social Tres Chic was held at SM Aura Samsung Hall last March 23, 2014 and it's my first YES to all invites I received since I started blogging. As much as I would want to cover events, I just cannot since Manila would cost me a lot of time and money, not to mention conflict in work schedules among others.


I arrived late when I was about to be there at exactly 1pm. I arrived 15 minutes late because I was asking around since I wasn't sure of what to ride to arrive at the venue and I need to commute from Pampanga to Manila just for this event. I wasn't able to calculate the time. I missed getting my seat on the assembly hall so I just got photos of Sara Black discussing tips on how to get nice photos.


Since I was late, I roamed around to see what were the booths that participated on the event.

Makeover at Ellana Minerals (They're kind enough to give samples)
Covergirl's Booth
Brushes at Real Techniques

I should have bought one bottle of this! They tried it on my hand and provide a sample too!
They have a cabinet that gives off samples at P1.00 each. Max. of 3 samples

PAC and Biokos together in one space
 
Amazing Blow Dry Secret's Booth
Revlon's Makeup Session with these Bellas
Bellas wearing Spygal's outfit at the Benefit Booth
Yves Rocher's Booth
Canmake's long line of bellas and gents

Free Facial at Godiva's Booth

Girls at the Bifiesta Booth





Finally, my next talk was Primed and Ready by Benefit. I got a good seat at the center so I can listen well and learn some techniques on applying makeup during summer. It was a wonderful talk and I was happy that I got the exclusive BDJ Box that has all the wonderful Benefit products inside. You can view my unboxing post here. :)

After the talk, I got a loot bag. The contents inside were actually few but together with the freebies I got on other booths, it makes it plenty. :)


I also got some photos at the photo booth there. I went solo so it's obvious right? Haha.


I want to thank BDJ Box and everyone who made this event a successful one. Even though I was all alone, I never felt lonely back there. If only I can make it longer there but I have to leave early again since I have classes the next morning. I wish I have someone with me next time. ^_^

I hope next time the venue will be near because I feel I can't go that far again. >.< Perhaps Trinoma or North Edsa? Hihi.. 

Again, thanks BDJ for that wonderful event. 
Xoxo ♥

  1. I was unable to be in this event kasi malayo. I think I missed a lot of cool events. I wanna be there because of make ups tips and tricks and to meet also the bloggers. Daming free service in every butique and it made me "hinayang" talaga. Huhu. Next time, I promise to myself that I will participate talaga at BDJ events.

  3. I remember going to BGC from Cavite(sounds near but not that near) to claim a prize. I know how it feels but, you're only 15 mins late, did you miss a lot with that span of time?

    1. The event started at 10am but the talk where I signed up started at 1pm. I guess I could say I didn't miss a lot since I made use of my time wisely when I arrived by visiting booths etc.

    2. So how can a gents like me participate in this event ?

    3. You can walk-in during the event itself. You may not be given loot bags since it's for those who pre-register but you can enjoy the services on the different booths. :)

  18. Event venues which are usually far from where I live prevent me from attending more events than I would like to but it is fun.

    1. This one taught me lessons regarding attending events. I really enjoyed it I must say,but it's really not practical for me since I live so far away and used additional budget than what I previously calculated. If events could come near me and if I can add another task to do, then I guess I'll be attending more events next time. :)

  28. Very great event indeed. I was there with my friend. She invited me to join her and we both registered for the event. It was cool and very interesting! Makes me want to buy and try everything! Haha but ofcourse I wouldn't, It will be very costly! Maybe one at a time! I super enjoy the first talk with the BDJ beauty ministry! I learned a lot of beauty tips! Also the Primed and Ready beauty talk by Benefit! They have the best looking and very creative names for their products! Will try them as soon as I can save money for them! I learned alot of things that day! Hopefully next time I could join again. Thanks BDJ! P.S. I love all the freebies ♡♡♡ (lootbag/boothsfreebies/pics)
