PHOTO DIARY #2: Colourette X Boss Babes Brunch

Date: May 19, 2018, Sat
Location: Early Bird Breakfast Club, Eastwood Mall, QC

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.

#RIXFIRSTS: New Products from COLOURETTE COSMETICS

Who else here loves a good sale? 🙋‍♀️

Thanks to great deals from Lazada and Colourette, I managed to score three of the latest products from Colourette for a much lower price! I’ve been a fan since 2016 and (I know I’ve said it too many times before, but just in case you don’t know) the first Colourstick that really got me was Bethany. I’ve shared about small collection in my older post, which you can read here.

Now they’ve expanded their line from lip products to face products. They’ve also released their eyeshadow palette and though I thought the palette is pretty, I still haven’t gotten my hands on it. Luckily, Ms. Nina, founder and CEO, announced that the Peach Purrfect Palette is making a comeback!  So if you’re one of those who missed it the last time, you can have the chance soon!

Now let’s dive in to the products. Continue reading “#RIXFIRSTS: New Products from COLOURETTE COSMETICS”
