During the start of the love month, BDJ conducted the ‘Ready, Set, Gorgeous!’ With Covergirl Soiree, their first beauty soiree of the year. It was held at The Open Space in Makati City. The registration wasn’t ’til 1 in the afternoon but girls were lined up outside the venue as early as 12 noon. I know because I came earlier than I care to admit, too. But I decided to eat at a nearby place first before actually heading to the venue. Oh, the things girls do for the love of makeup, haha.
The soiree introduced the brand’s newest collection “Ready, Set, Gorgeous!” which comprises of a liquid foundation, a concealer, and a pressed powder. The products all come in different shades for different skin tones and all are amazingly budget-friendly!

Janine of the BDJ Team opened the event by giving a bit of a background of the brand and a quick game to break the ice. Bellas really do know their makeup! I mean, I can’t even Google fast enough to get a question right. Haha. Good job, ladies!
Youtube makeup guru and beauty blogger, Say Tioco Artillero, was invited to talk about the new Covergirl’s Ready, Set, Gorgeous! collection and demonstrate how to use them. She’s been in the industry for quite some time now and it was interesting how she threw in some tips she learned from her freelancing experience.
Here’s the final look. What do you think? 🙂
We were welcomed with tables filled with CoverGirl products which we can play with to create our own look. I haven’t tried a lot of products from the brand so I saw it as an opportunity to test which ones I would consider buying. Can you guess which products I liked? <3
This concealer is actually part of the new Covergirl’s Ready, Set, Gorgeous! collection that was launched in the market just last week, along with the powder and the liquid foundation.
More makeup after the jump!
I’m surprised no one has ever talked about these eyebrow pencils. And by no one I mean local beauty bloggers. These are amazing – probably the best in the bunch! They’re pigmented and it latches on the brows really well. The darker one, I think it’s called Midnight, is my absolute fave!
When us girls come together, we play with makeup. Here’s our table in action. Look at how busy everyone was doing our own thing. Oh, shout out to Patty Patricio and Tasha Bernardo Din! It’s always exciting to meet readers. It was fun chatting with you. More makeup chikka next time.
Of course no event is complete without a photo op with fellow beauty bloggers. Say hi to Donna, Kaycee and Rochelle. They’re not called beauty bloggers for nothing. *wink!
It was indeed an afternoon filled with fun girl bonding for beauty bloggers and makeup enthusiasts alike. This is actually the great thing about BDJ events; we get to meet more people with the same interest and we actually get to bond more with makeup as our common ground.
The CoverGirl Ready, Set, Gorgeous! collection is available in all leading stores since February 7. Thank you BDJ Team and CoverGirl for the kikay afternoon. Cheers for more beauty events this year! :*
