Maybelline BB Top Models Search: Jury Duty

Remember my post about the Maybelline BB Top Models Search? Guess what … Maybelline invited me for Jury Duty last December 9! I’m really honored to be invited!

I got to mentor 2 beautiful ladies during the search and it felt good when I heard that they made the cut! Though only 1 girl made to the go-see because my girl read the email late. Anyhoo, I’ll let the pictures do the talking now.

The first that caught my eye when I got there was the dessert bar! The set-up is just perfect! Wish I could have a dessert bar like this at home! Haha!

The table was filled with scrumptious cupcakes, marshmallows, flowers and many more!

These Jury Duty mugs were given to us after the go-see. It looks awesome, right?

Marta Cunha, the Group Product Manager of L’Oréal Philippines, gave an inspirational speech to all the aspiring models before the go-see.

Everyone waiting and excited for the go-see to start!

Here we go! Let’s get the show on the road!

We got to meet 30 beautiful and talented young ladies. Each and every one had a chance to walk fiercely down the runway. After the walk, the jury asked them a question about the brand so that we’d know if they fit to become one of the BB Top Models.

I love Mona! She really stood out with her Pinay Beauty!

We had a few minutes to breathe and mingle with other bloggers after the go-see.

Yette Cruz of Yettezkie’s Doodles, won 200 Maybelline Products to giveaway to her readers because the girl she mentored got the highest online votes!

Finally! Meet the 8 Maybelline BB Top Models for 2014!

All of them were super excited and happy when they were called on stage!

THE WINNERS are (from L to R) Mona Florendo, Victoria Velasco, Kristelle Ann Batchelor (She’s the UST Courtside Reporter! Go USTe!), Shane Nicole Remante, Marnie Favis, Celestine Generillo,  Erika Acampado and Marilag Sadicon

Mona Florendo won a P100,000 exclusive modelling contract and Victoria Velasco won a P50,000 exclusive modelling contact under Ideal People Model Management

After the go-see, I got a chance to have a photo-op with Dee Cruz – she’s under Team Yana! Woo-Hoo! Good job Dee!

Anyhoo, Congratulations ladies! Hoping to see you guys next year for the Maybelline BB line! That’s it! Hope you enjoyed my post as much as I do! :-)

Girl Stuff Nail Polishes

I’ve been a nail polish junkie since college. I could remember the first bottle I bought from The Face Shop and got addicted ever since. I have O.P.I., Orly, China Glaze and so on. What’s new in my collection is … Girlstuff Nail Polishes

From L to R: Pinky, Scarlet, Chesnut, Pixie (Magnetic) and Ice Queen (Magnetic)

What I like about them is that they’re FREE from the three harmful chemicals usually found in nail polishes: formaldehyde, toluene and di-butyl phthalate that’s causing harm and damage to our nails. Plus, they’re non-toxic and safe to use even for your little sisters and nieces!

Their regular and washable  nail polish is only 99.75php per bottle and the magnetic ones is for only 249.75php!

Another thing I like about Girlstuff nail polish is the brush – it glides easily for an even coat and it dries quickly! Oh all Girlstuff nail polish is imported from France!

Other than their regular nail polish, they also have WASHABLE (Yes! You read it right!) and MAGNETIC nail polish.

The washable nail polish applies and dries like a regular nail polish but can be removed by washing it with soap and water. Cool ‘no?

Here’s a preview of the colors! Will do a separate entry for the swatches soon!

You could check them out in Girlstuff Kiosks in MOA (2nd floor near the Cinema), SM North Edsa (2nd floor infront of Barrio Fiesta) and SM Megamall (2nd floor, Bldg. A). They’re also available at SM and Rustans Department Stores!

That’s it! Hope you check them out and see for yourself these awesome nail polishes! Thank you Girlstuff for sending these over!
