Last week my baby brother was confined in the hospital for pneumonia and bronchial asthma. Being the eldest, I was automatically tasked to stay in the hospital and care for my brother. It wasn’t much of a trouble for me but 3 days straight was awfully boring. Plus I hate the feeling of cancelling on events I already RSVP-ed to. After a couple of days, I decided to go home for a bit to get some more things and yes, to take a bath. Upon entering the front door, I saw a package waiting for me. I was so surprised because, first, I wasn’t really expecting anything and second, the box was HUGE – as big as a typical shoe box.. only taller.
I hurriedly tear open the plastic packaging. I was even more surprised to see that the humongous package turned out to be BDJ Box‘s September Elite Box. This box is not just any other box you know. This right here is a Colour Collection-exclusive box. I was so excited all my stress just went away. The timing was impeccable. Thank you BDJ Team! You really do know how to cheer up a girl like me. 🙂
Allow me to showcase my new Colour Collection products from the September BDJ Elite Box. 😀

You’d think that you’ll only get 1 shade per type of lipstick but that’s not how BDJ Box rolls. They generously included 4 shades of each type. Now that’s 8 lipsticks in one BDJ Box! As you can see, some of the lipsticks melted before I had the chance to use them – probably due to the intense heat during the past couple of days. No worries though, I’ll just have to melt the bottom part, stick it right back, pop it in the freezer for a bit and it’ll be as good as new. You’ll see! 😉
Eye Shadow Palettes (PhP380/ea) in Terra Cotta, Ivy Blooms and Gypsy Rose – “Play up your eyes with these harmonized Eye Shadow Palettes with shades that blends easily, creating naturally mesmerizing eyes. If you want a sheer wash of color, use dry sponge applicator. For dramatic longer-lasting color, use a wet sponge applicator.”
Blush-on Duo (Php 370) in Desert Rose – “Score gorgeous, sculpted cheeks with Colour Collection’s Blush-on Duo. The perfectly matched blush and contour shades ensure a cohesive ooh for your face. Swipe on the shimmery pink shade on the apples of your cheeks, while you apply the bronze shade on the hollows to bring out your striking cheekbones.”
Colour Intense Powder (Php 299) in Rosy Affair- “This Colour Intense Powder Blush will brighten up your face and enliven your complexion, giving you an effortless, giving you an effortless radiance. Infused with Vitamin E, it also helps to nourish your skin while providing a pretty flush of color on your cheeks.”
Lastly, it came with this hefty acrylic organizer with 2 layers – each layer has 3 compartments. This will surely come in handy when I finally organize all my makeup stuff once we move back to our house. If you don’t know, I’m currently using the BDJ Boxes from the previous months to organize my lipsticks depending on their brands. You can’t blame me for not throwing them out you know. They’re quite sturdy and very pretty. 🙂
That’s 16 full-sized products in September’s Colour Collection-exclusive box with a total worth of Php 6,157 for only Php 1,880 – a whopping 70% savings! You’d initially think that the Elite Box costs a great sum of money but I’m telling you, it’s totally worth it. You get more for your money so you’re really saving a lot and, well; you get to try a lot of products from a very promising brand. If I don’t already own 6 out of 16 products here, I would’ve bought it for myself. It doesn’t hurt to get backups, right? *wink!
