Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation Exchange in Trinoma

Yesterday, I went with my friend Dawn to the Double Wear Foundation Exchange event at Estee Lauder Trinoma. Yes, girls - Estee Lauder currently has a temporary counter at Trinoma (across Chronos and MAC), until June 23, 2013, which means Northerners don't have to go far just to have their luxurious beauty fix!


This Double Wear Foundation Exchange was announced over at their Facebook page (Estee Lauder - Philippines) 5 days before the event, and I was lucky enough to see it! I RSVPed right then and there and asked Dawn if she wanted to come with me. I'm happy she was equally excited as I was, and we were booked in the same time slot.


It's Double Wear exchange again! Visit us at Estee Lauder Trinoma for an exciting make over and new profile photo for your social network page, phone, or blog. So flattering, you’ll keep it up forever. Plus, bring your old foundation bottle and exchange it with a 10-day supply of Double Wear foundation, absolutely FREE. Visit us on June 15 from 2-5PM.


Estee Lauder Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10 is a long-wearing liquid foundation that works wonders, especially for people with oily skin. Makeup stays fresh, even in the humid Philippine weather. Available in 8 shades.


During the event, I spotted these fancy Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation cookies! They looked real - too cute! Everyone who attended the event got a cookie. I still have mine, and I don't want to eat it. :D


Those who brought their old liquid foundation bottles dropped it in this plastic bin, and got their 10-day supply of Double Wear foundation, in their perfect shade, absolutely free! (You get to dispose your old foundation, and get a sample of a super nice one in exchange, so that's definitely a win!)


If you RSVPed, then you're also entitled to a complete makeover and a photoshoot afterwards. (Walk-ins were also allowed provided the slots are open.) I was very excited for this, so I didn't wear any makeup when I went here.


Good skincare (and not even makeup) is the secret to good skin! If you have good skin to begin with, you'd need less makeup elsewhere. For the first part of my makeover, my skin was cleansed/toned using Estee Lauder Optimizer Intensive Boosting Lotion, which made my skin feel so refreshed. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair serums were applied to my face and eye area, followed by Estee Lauder Hydrationist Maximum Moisture Creme to moisturize my face. Moisturizing was the last step to "seal" the nourishing ingredients of the serums that were applied on my skin. My face felt so hydrated and fresh afterwards.


Next was the actual makeover, using the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10 in Warm Vanilla 2W0. My lids were painted in purple shades, while my cheeks and lips in rosy shades. A photoshoot followed afterwards, which you'll see below.


On display was a jumbo bottle of the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation - a lifetime supply if you ask me! It's so cute, I want to take it home, punch a few holes at the back, make it my coin bank (if that makes any sense). Haha!


I was with Dawn most of the time during the event, so of course we had to take pictures together!

We also roamed around the counters and checked out their products on display. Then, we both found out that we love the same fragrance - Estee Lauder Pleasures!

Dawn and I

With the gorgeous and hardworking Estee Lauder girls (who are working even on a Saturday!) - Thank you so much for making this event possible. We truly enjoyed it!


When I  was done with my makeover, I was given this loot bag filled with loads of goodies! I got so kilig, and I felt like a kid who received a party bag, only this one was a big girl's party bag filled with deluxe-sized samples from Estee Lauder! I went to the event just expecting to have my old bottle of foundation traded for a sample, so I was very surprised with this! Thank you so much, Estee Lauder!


I received an Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation cookie (the cutest I've seen!), and a 10-day sample of the foundation in my shade.


Aside from the makeover, I also got this polaroid photo as a souvenir and an Estee Lauder USB flash drive that contained the soft copy of my makeover photos. This flash drive is the most kikay one I have right now, and I am so loving it!


I also received deluxe-sized samples of Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum, Hydrationist Maximum Moisture Creme, Sumptuous BoldVolume Lifting Mascara in 01 Black, and Double Wear Stay-in-Place Dual Effect Powder Makeup SPF 10/PA++ in 36 Sand.


This was my favorite photo from the shoot. My skin looked perfect and radiant here, all thanks to Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup!


I also had my own photoshoot after I went home! Haha! It's not everyday that I get all glammed up like this, so I have to savor the moment. :D This one was taken indoors, no flash, but this time with bangs! My skin looks a bit sunkissed with the shade, but I am loving the matte, poreless finish of this foundation!

I had so much fun during the event! I heard they're also having another event like this in Makati soon, so you better attend! Make sure to like Estee Lauder - Philippines on Facebook so you don't miss out on the announcement.

  2. Love this foundation! <3 The only foundation my derma recommended when I went through a terrible face allergy. It has non-irritating ingredients, i believe. <3

    1. Wow, if it's recommended by the derma then it must mean that it's gentle on the skin. :D

    1. It stayed matte even after I went home and had dinner. The makeup was applied around 2:30PM. It's amazing! I didn't want to remove it but I had to eventually. Haha :)
