Pamper Experience with Zen Institute and Gorgeous Cosmetics and a Personal Side Note

How is everyone doing? I’m sincere when I’m asking that actually. This will be the last of my busy July 22 Events series here on KikaySiKat. Lately, I’ve been noticing that my recent posts are a bit soul-less. More like “Hey I’m posting because I’m required to post this because I owe this brand something and I need to write it NOW or else they’ll burn me in hell
I feel bad for readers who actually visit here because we actually have a thing in common and we’re a part of a growing kikay community here. That I forget to engage you on a personal level and instead, leave you with robotic magazine-like edited text. Boo. I should tell stories, not write articles. Pero we’re only human, sometimes we forget.
Everyone was listening attentively and actually excited to have our treatments and makeover.

Last July 22nd, I actually had to take a  personal leave from work because I wanted to attend several events cramped in one day. The first one was the launch of Nina’s latest fragrance, La Tentation, the next one was Clothes Buffet Manila’s Press Launch + Mini Buffet, and the last one was this one. The last event, Gorgeous Cosmetics and Zen Institute‘s Pamper Day was perfect timing, since they were the last, and they were to treat us to a pampering session.

While waiting for the other bloggers to arrive due to the strong winds and rain, I had the chance to have a little chit-chat with my co-bloggers Shen from and Jirbie of Couch Wasabi, and Ms. Michelle, owner of Orangebox and official Philippine distributor of Gorgeous cosmetics. Life as a single mom, a mom, and the challenges of being a woman and having our tiis ganda moments when Jirbie shared her experience of having a temporary eyebrow tattoo.

It was finally time for the brief discussion of Zen Institute on their services. They are specializing on non-surgical procedures for skin and body. Especially their skin treatments to keep it looking young. They mentioned a service where they use your own blood as base for your face-lift. Talk about innovation.

Michelle discussing the history of Gorgeous Cosmetics

When it was Gorgeous Cosmetics‘ turn, Michelle discussed the history of Gorgeous Cosmetics. Based on Australia and created by makeup artist, David McConnell. Make no mistake, Gorgeous Cosmetics might be a professional makeup brand catering to makeup artists but WE regular makeup muses are free to use their products too!

When it was my turn, their makeup artist, Margaux Reyes was the one in charge of giving me a makeover. She gave me a subtle smokey eye with nude lips. She used the Base Perfect Liquid Foundation on my skin and completed my look with Gorgeous Eyelashes (which is made of natural hair and can be re-used for up to 10 times!)

I was stunned with their Base Perfect Liquid foundation (1900php), it really felt like I had nothing on (my face, haha!) I also heard great things on their contour palette.

Thanks to Ms. Margaux  from Makeup By Meg for the gorgeous makeover
If I had more time on my hands, I really wanted to experience Zen Institute’s Diamond Peel. I will definitely come back and try it. My skin needs pampering, a colleague mentioned I have been “aging” *shock!* *sigh* It’s probably because of stress. We can’t help it right? There are times when there are a lot of things on our backs that needs to be done and we can only do so much!
