The amazing people behind my favorite local makeup brand created a Facebook community called “Boss Babes”. Among many makeup groups on Facebook, Colourette X Boss Babes has quickly become everyone’s favorite because of its friendly atmosphere. It is where you’ll see members uplifting other members through compliments, advice, recommendations, and words of empowerment. It is where they can share their selfies freely without any fear of getting harshly criticized.
Ms. Nina and Ms. Sab, the Big Boss Babes of the brand, came up with the idea of dedicating a new collection to the Boss Babes called Velvet Mattes. To make it even more exciting, they held a very special meet and greet with 10 of the Colourette Clique members. Just in case you have no idea what Colourette Clique is, it’s a group of social media influencers who represent the brand. Ms. Nina asked us who we’d love to meet in person. I was so happy that most of the people I chose were included in the final list.
When Ms. Nina finally dropped the bomb, I really made it a point that I had to be there no matter what. In order for us to secure a slot, we had to be one of the first 50 to purchase all three shades (freebies included), which were going to be available on their website at 9 PM of the 15th.
All the Boss Babes were glued to the computers and smartphones, constantly refreshing their browsers to check if they were already up. However, it was not even 9 PM yet when their website kept crashing! So a few minutes after 9, Ms. Nina immediately created a thread in the group where we could secure a slot. I even commented on the wrong post haha! Luckily, Dang mentioned me in the right thread.
So May 19 finally came! Woot Woot!
Most photos are raw; the others were edited in Snapseed. All photos were taken with my Acer Liquid X2.
Because we were coming from Laguna, we made sure we left early to get there on time. Apparently, we got to the venue super early because there was no traffic jam! Yay!
Jessica was the host (she was amazing, as always!) When the event started, the 10 clique members introduced themselves (although, of course, we know them na 😉).
Next talk was with Kylie and Paige, where they gave tips on how to take cute selfies. (Got no photos, but I’ll be posting my vlog soon. I will, promise.)
Charlie, aka Vitamin Choli, and Arbi talked about how they started with makeup and what makeup does for us. That it’s not really something to be afraid of doing, especially if it’s something we enjoy. Regardless of what people say against using makeup, let’s DGAF and brush them off. It’s our face, our money, and our self-satisfaction.
Arbi asked for a Boss Babe to share their makeup story, and I gathered all my courage to volunteer. 😅
After all the talks from the Clique, Ms. Nina gave each of us a cute pink mug, on which we had the Clique sign and write messages.
We took our chance to mingle and have selfies with them, too. Unfortunately, I was already going home when I realized I wasn’t able to take photos with Ms. Sab and Magen. #sadlife 😭
Of course, there’s food, too!
But of course, one of the best things was meeting these wonderful women, sharing the same table, and forming a beautiful bond!
I super thank Kate for these photos hahaha! These are hers, I didn’t have any photos of us on our phones during the event. Except for one before we all left the venue:
It was a super awesome time with Ms Nina and Ms. Sab, the Colourette Clique, and the Boss Babes! Lalo na my table buddies.
Thank you so much! See you in the next one? 😍
