Sample Room is a sampling site that banks on the power of free product sampling. It is an online community that changes your beauty-shopping pattern; and an interactive community where your opinions matter and where all beauty lovers are valued. It prides itself on its “TRY BEFORE YOU BUY” slogan from skin, hair, and body care. Fragrances & cosmetics, to lifestyle.
The event that Sample Room sponsored this time was about something I hold dear to my heart… LIPPIES! <3 I don’t know if you’ve noticed but I love bright, colorful lippies & I never leave the house without putting on a layer. COLOUR COLLECTION by TUPPERWARE is all about lippies and more. And I got to take Ate along for this ultra exclusive bloggers event! Lippies & Ate in one sentence makes me smile really really wide. ;)
Achieve effortless and timeless beauty with Colour Collection’s LUMINOUS PEARL lipsticks, hydra care pressed powder, and age defying BB cream.
To be honest, I was a bit hesitant to attend the event because I didn’t know any of the beauty bloggers gracing the occasion. I’m a foodie. I read about food, not beauty. But it was a pleasant surprise when SR’s young founders Valerie, Kathy & Sophie Uy of SOPHIE’s WORLD collectively approached & greeted me at the entrance as I registered & they made me feel so at ease & welcomed. Helping me feel my way around. <3
I don’t go to events because I’m really shy -believe it or not, and I get intimidated by the big named bloggers. Baka supladahan lang nila ako noh. So this was only my 2nd event, very exciting for me indeed & as always, I want to share my experience with you. Ganito pala ang feeling ng VIP! ;))
I love being greeted with happy smiles! <3 The Holiday Inn people are so welcoming.
With Ms. ANIMETRIC’s WORLD at the registration! <3
You choose a lippy color from the COLOUR COLLECTION samplers & put it on. Ate based the color on the lippy that wasn’t used yet, lels. She’s a germaphobe like her mommy. ;))
At first I didn’t give too much attention to this lady. Until Ate pointed out to me that she was painting using the lipsticks for color. How innovative & unique! How I wish I knew of this when I gave Ate her SURPRISE LIP SPA-RTY! </3
The very talented artist, SANDRA VILLAGRACIA, who covered her canvas with bright, rich colors from Tupperware’s COLOUR COLLECTION.
So very pretty!!! <3 I liked the one on the leftmost. I wanted to buy it for Ate’s room but unfortunately, they weren’t for sale. Boo! <!–3
Very well played! m/ I will surely get in touch with her when I have another girly party for my not-so-little ladies.
The moment Ate & I reached the Rooftop Deck (RD) this fab spread greeted us! <3 Sample Room & Colour Collection sure know how to take care of their guests!
Porkloin & Roast Beef I told you I’m a foodie! I took photos of the food before anything else, lels. I thought I was at a Food event! ;))
Ate was VERY VERY happy with this salad buffet & went straight for it after our perfunctory rounds inside & outside! @_@
Ang ganap sa loob! All YOUNG beauty bloggers. Na-OP talaga ako hahaha! Buti nalang Ate was with me so kunwari alalay niya nalang ako GAAHHH!
All those colors put a big smile on my face. Can you see?
My very pretty & fab princess. <3
Every color imaginable on every table for the guests to enjoy, or even take home after the event.
Everywhere you turned. Food & drinks galore. I was VERY happy indeed! ;))
The very lovely PATRICIA FERNANDEZ as the host, in my favorite color! FINK! ;)

The event was very well attended by top beauty bloggers.. and well, me. Lels.
Our beauty guru (and Colour Collection’s chief make-up artist) for the day was the very funny, very witty, very glam Bianca Valerio…
who taught us the secrets of good lippie application. Her model is the amiable GHLENNIFER who was so game in spite of all the teasing & good-natured ribbing she got from Bianca for her name -as well as her sparkling, golden OOTD! ;))
The beautiful, unique paintings were raffled off to 3 lucky winners. Too bad I wasn’t one of them. SADNESS! <!–3
There was a contest for the most unique lippy design. 5 minutes to apply & upload to instagram @colourcollection #colorcollectionhothues @sampleroomph
I enjoyed our bonding sesh. We can add this to our Mommy & Jana’s treasure trove of happy memories. <3
We were going for color blocking ala “sugar & spice”. Girly pink on top for “sugar” (pa-tweetums kahit mashonda na), and Skanky red at the bottom lip for “spice”. We weren’t too familiar with the colors. So epic fail, hahaha!
We were given a bag of samples EACH to try & we’re so excited with the fascinating range of colors guaranteed to suit every mood! ;)
The limited edition HOT KISS LIPSTICK by Bianca Valerio makeup collection: Sweetheart Blush & Contour Duo, Runway Red, Tickle Me Pink, Kisses with Cream (nude), and Peaches & Passion (peach) which Ate is already using ergo it’s in her bag of wonders na! :P I feel that these colors are geared more towards the younger crowd. Bianca & her team have a University tour on-going to promote these colors to college students.
From left to right: Kisses with Cream, Tickle Me Pink & Runway Red. Not in photo: Peaches & Passion which Ate is already using.
While these, in my opinion, are better suited for the working professionals & the more mature crowd (think: ME!)
To be honest, and not because I was given a sample pack to use, the lipstick really is long lasting. In fact, I’m using QUEEN BEE (red) & HEAD TURNER (fuschia pink) in all photos on my succeeding posts. :)
Colour Collection ULTIMATE WEAR Lippies Achieve rich, vivid, long-wearing color that glides on smoothly and doesn’t fade away easily. Always hydrating and never drying, this lipstick keeps lips moisturized all day, minimizes the appearance of fine lines, and stops feathering to keep lips the perfect plumped-up appearance. Slim and handy, and with see-through window for easy identification. From left to right: Queen Bee, Temptress, Bellisima, Head Turner, Angelic & Naked Peach
Lipstick price: very affordable at 330 php (Bianca Valerio collection) & 350 php only per tube. Available for sale at SAMPLE ROOM PH.
Btw, BIANCA VALERIO has a book out, in case you’re interested. I’ve been meaning to download this in Ate’s iPad so I can also share since we have one kindle account, lels. But they don’t have in in ebook format yet. Waaaa! :'((
This book gathers a diverse group of real people and celebrities who, including Bianca, have encountered a host of personality issues and conflicts in their lives. The common thread shared by the people in this book is their having experienced both, the outer and inner transformative powers of make-up and cosmetics. This book not only shares their personal journeys but also includes step-by-step doable cosmetic techniques to help arm you to face the world-the first step of which, is liking what you see in the mirror… The person you face everyday.
