NIVEA ✘ Mango Glam Express
When two big brands in the beauty and fashion industry join forces, there’s bound to be a lot of fun. So I really prepped myself up for the Nivea & Mango Glam Express event held at Mango, Rockwell last 08.11.11.
Everything was in blue and white; just like Nivea/ Biersdorf’s classic logo. I arrived extra early so I was able to meet the lovely Nivea and Mango team.
What I wore (OOTD)
H&M brown inner dress; Forever 21 Leopard Chiffon top; Nine West shoulder bag; Tonic Leopard Satin Pumps.
*The top is actually from the Plus-size section but I fell in love with the design so I got the smallest one available. Had to pin it on to keep it from falling off my shoulders. 8)
Accessories: My lovely owl connector ring & feather necklace came from Yhansy Manila. It’s a small accessory heaven in Shangri-La mall. I love all of their cute jewelries! <3
Got to bond with fellow beauty bloggers: Atchi (sister in Chinese) Rowena (animetric) & Martha (Beauty Junkee) ~I met her for the first time and I absolutely adore her for her beauty tips and tricks and her knowledge on online shops because I’m currently looking for a new camera that I can take out during events without feeling like an embarassed bunny. *Hint: my Lumix turns 5 this year!
Mango had a styling contest wherein the fastest team to come up with the most similar ensemble as the peg given to us wins. Lucky for me, the ladies picked the one with the Leopard print! Everyone that follows me on Twitter must know that I have a leopard’s eye because I’m obsessed with it! o_o
Our team was so cute because we even huddled prior to scavenging around the shop for the items. Obviously, the leopard dress was assigned to me, Rowy rummaged the accessories bar & Martha, our sexy model, looked for bags & shoes. We came up with *this* (photo above)
After the quick but tiring activity, Nivea showed us a short presentation about Biersdorf’s history, 100th year celebration & their latest product innovation, Nivea Express Hydration.
You can read more about this product here.
The Yehey team gave us a sneak peek to their latest Facebook Application:The Nivea Glamboard Express. You can make your own “Glam Board” (pegs) so you can mix & match items from Mango and get the chance to win fabulous gifts from Nivea.PH daily.
I was supposed to leave right after trying out the app because I was late for my dinner but they asked me to stay for the closing remarks and awarding for the styling contest.
The Enciso sisters finished 3rd place with 10 minutes styling time. I hope I get the chance to put makeup on them someday. They’re like real-life angels on earth. :3
The Style Bible team won 2nd place with 9 minutes. Just a 1-minute difference from Vern & Vernice. And guess who won 1st place with just 4 minutes!?!?!
TEAM LEOPARD! RAWR! :)) Everyone was dumbfounded when our time was announced. I couldn’t believe we were THAT fast. The host said that she saw me running in my pumps. *awkward* But hey, all of us got to take home a neat watch from Mango & this^ super heavy basket filled with Nivea goodies. <3<3<3
Thank you Mango & Nivea for this fun event. Looking forward to try the Glamboard Express app this week!
Marié Digby: How to get this romantic look ♥
A few days ago, I had the awesome opportunity to do makeup on Marié Digby (Youtube sensation/ singer/ song writer) together with the ‘Dream Team’ Tricia Gosingtian (Photography) Liz De Asis (Hair) & Valerie Chua (Headdress). Special thanks to our pageant queen and friend Alexis Go for introducing her to us!
Makeup used: (key makeup only)
- Marié brought along her own base/ liquid foundation because she’s afraid of breakouts when she doesn’t use this. Will reveal the brand on my next post; which will be a makeup interview with her.
- For the eyes, I used a mix of Catwalk Cosmetics eyeshadows. (Pearl White, Royal Blue & Black Noir.
- Bronzer & blush - MAC cosmetics Wonderwoman Golden Lariat Mineralize Bronzer then topped it off with a little Catwalk Cosmetics Tangerine blush.
- Lips - Etude House Lucid Darling #5 (lavender). Marié loved the color and scent of this lipstick. It’s one of my current favorites too.
We had a fun-filled afternoon while shooting this; followed by dinner and Happy Lemon. Marié is such a sweet and simple girl but she sure knows how to crack jokes. I’m looking forward to working with her & the dream team again! :>
Don’t forget to read my blog again for my interview with her plus tips on how to get the “Tangerine Kiss” look. ♥
