Robinsons Department Store: 2012 Beauty Bound Fair!

by - February 20, 2012

Last year, I attended my first ever RDS beauty fair (read post here) with my two girls, Honey and Ana and we had the time of our life filling our baskets with beauty loot, so going to this year's beauty fair was not an option. It's a must! Plus, this year they invited more bloggers, so it was really fun. ^_^


I always love passes/ I.D.'s like this, because you know how you're not allowed to take product shots in malls? Well this baby gets you unlimited access for the day to take pictures like a bawwwsss!:))

The beauty fair, like last year also offered a makeover and we got to try some of the latest products ourselves...


The first thing we tried out was Revlon's Colorburst Lip Butter. It's so pretty on your lips. My favorite was the Sweet Tart (middle), while Angel, loved the Candy Apple and Krissy, the Raspberry Pie. They're only Php 525 each and you get 10% Off on selected items for every purchase of the NEW Colorburst Lip Butter. :)

Krissy and Angel, got all excited to shop and I got left behind. =P Wait for me, girls!!

Ana, Krissy, Sarah, Angel, Tin and Kaye :)

Bumped into the other blog friends as well while roaming around. Miss you, Honey! :)

So what is the Beauty Fair all about? Well, this whole month of February, RDS is Beauty Bound to offer you the best beauty must-haves. fragrances, make-up and skin care products that'll make you look fresh and pretty wherever you go. Did I mention, they offer great promos too?:)


Whenever I go to the cosmetics area, I immediately go for the nail polish section to see the latest colors and what shade I can get next. It's also great that RDS has a lot of nail polish brands, from local to international; China Glaze, Orly, Caronia, L.A. Colors, Revlon, Cover Girl and more! I actually had a hard time choosing, but I'm happy with what I got! 

Oh BTW, I discovered L.A. Colors last January and I love how affordable it is. I wasn't expecting that at only Php 89, the coating would be nice. So, if you don't like spending on Php 300 on nail polish, go for L.A. Colors!


RDS has America's Next Top Model's favorite make-up brand; CoverGirl. :)


If you're into coloring your hair by yourself, you can check out Revlon!


L'Oreal is known to give only the best for us and boy, do they also have a lot of promotion to offer...

Maybelline is one of my favorite brands when it comes to lip balms, so I was really happy to see their new line, BABY LIPS: Cellular Repair Balm. What makes it different from basic lip balms is that it delivers SPF 20 sun protection and 8-hour hydration for soft, visibly renewed lips. :) I often get chapped lips, so this is perfect!

Johnson and Johnson will forever be my favorite baby brand. Used their shampoo when I younger and now, Athan uses their top-to-toe wash. Like mother like son. ;) Their colognes and lotion are not bad either!

After scouting my favorite brands, I went to see what they had at Careline and Ever Bilena...


Careline has a lot of low-priced makeup, while Ever Bilena has refreshing body mist. :)

After shopping for nail polish, Angel, Krissy and I went over Maybelline to buy colored eyeliners, but unfortunately they didn't have the colors we wanted, because they ran out. Luckily, cosmetic sections never fail to have alternatives...


We checked out L.A. Colors and they had Blue, Pink, Green, Brown, Purple, White and Black! We didn't leave the area without getting at least 3 colors. =P Love it!

After a fun and tiring time shopping, a few of us went to Lutong Hinirang to have lunch and bond...

Ana, Angel and Aie :) Triple A!
Pax, Me and Sarah :D

Its been awhile since we were all together like this, so I definitely missed our chikahan! And as promised,  Pax, do you love your sunnies?:) hehe!
