Sample Room’s 1st Workshop & Thanksgiving Party
Anyway, for those of you who don’t know, last October 05, 2013, I was one of the few lucky VIP members who were invited to attend Sample Room’s First Workshop & Thanksgiving Party. I got the invitation a few weeks before the said event and without hesitation, I said yes. I feel so blessed because I know that I’d be able to meet all of my favorite bloggers. (which are mostly SR’s partner bloggers & members of the bloggers’ circle).
I’ve been a member of Sample Room ever since it started and I remember my first sample was the Benefit The Porefessional Mini Sample. I loved it so much that I still have it. Yeah I know. I really am considering buying it because it really is effective. It’s pricey but it’s worth every penny.
The event was held at Stacy’s at BGC, and I went there together with Aya (of Codename Aya) and we were welcomed by the venue’s cozy interiors. I love it’s homey vibe, and girly decorations. The main event/workshop was held upstairs while the food was located downstairs.
Ms. Sophie Uy (of of Beautynomics), one of the founders of Sample Room (also one of its partner bloggers, and the owner of Charm Brushes) started the program with how Sample Room started and discussed the importance of makeup brushes. She also gave us a sneak peek of Charm’s upcoming line. It’s made in Japan and if I’m not mistaken it resembles to Hakuhodu’s flat top brushes. It has a gold ferrule and it looks very luxurious.
Following Ms. Sophie’s discussion, Noel, the Bobbi Brown’s resident makeup artist gave a lot of makeup tips, do’s and don’ts. One of the most unforgettable tips he gave out was about the layering of mascaras. He said that if we want to layer volumizing & lengthening mascaras, the first mascara that we should apply first should be the volumizing first. Apply it from root to tip. Then apply your lengthening mascara midway up to the tip of your lashes to avoid clumping. I’m an avid fan of layering mascaras, and I like to put on volumizing first, then top if off with a lengthening mascara, but this part I didn’t know so this was such a huge help.
Finally, the last talk was proceeded by DJ Ingrid Nieto, who discussed about inner beauty. She also discussed some things about relationship not only with other people, but also with God.
Each talk had a few Q & A portion where in Ms. Sophie gave out some prizes from Sample Room’s current & upcoming brands. She also gave out Bobbi Brown To Go kits (I’m soo jealous and so pissed at myself for not answering a single question, because those Bobbi To Go kits are so gorg!)
At the end of the event, Sample Room together with Team Instax chose two lucky ‘instagrammers’ who will win an Instax Mini 8. They did an instagram contest that ran all through out the entire event. They also let use their Instax Mini 8 and they were so cute! Here’s my entry, by the way. Oh, and Atty. Donna (of My Lucid Intervals) Gem (of Rare Vanity) won. Their table’s actually the luckiest. Jess (of Makeup Love) won Charm’s upcoming brush line (the one that I was referring to earlier).

Of course, no event would be complete without a photo op. We did group shot and then we also took individual shots with the partner bloggers & members of the partner bloggers.
I was so glad to meet my favorite bloggers especially Ms. Sabs of Musings Of A Makeup Maven. She’s so sweet! I’ve been following her at YT and I love watching her tutorials. I’ve learned so much from her!
