Roommates and camera enthusiasts alike were treated to a Saturday filled with make-up and fashion makeovers and a whole lot of photo snaps at the Fujifilm Lifestyle Photofest on September 24 at the TriNoma Activity Center. This event celebrated the launch of Fujifilm’s latest products: the Fujifilm X-A3 and the Instax Share SP-2.

Sample Room partnered with Fujifilm for this event to offer free makeovers to our roommates (and future roommates) who dropped by our booth. After registering to Sample Room or verifying their membership, they were given loot bags and respective numbers for their makeover. They were also given a chance to win at our online photo contest with premier prizes ranging from an Instax Share SP-2 and goodies from Elizabeth Arden and Laneige when they post their creative shots with the X-A3 on their Instagram and other social media accounts.

Performances from Reese Lansangan and a mini fashion show featuring some of the country’s top online influencers and Bea Alonzo, the brand ambassadress of Fujifilm Philippines, also entertained the roommates in the snap-worthy event.

Doors opened at 10 am with roommies and guests slowly weaseling their way to our booth for their free makeover sesh. They were greeted with four talented make-up artists who graced our booth to sprinkle their fairy dust and share their artistry with our roommates.

The queue became long an hour after the doors opened but it was the perfect time to get to know the people within our community. They shared how Sample Room led their way to their Holy Grail products and how it helped them to really think about their purchases and maximize their buying power. LJ, a roommate who attended the event and was one of our winners for the Elizabeth Arden contest, was so in love with the sample sized Ceramide capsules that she got from Sample Room that she immediately bought herself the full size! Other roommates also shared with us what they got from their latest haul in our site.

Last call for the makeover was at 4 pm and the 80+ roommates who got their slice of our free beautifying rendezvous left our booth with happy faces. Roommates who opted out of the makeover were also given loot bags and a chance to win at our online photo contest.

It was, indeed, a fun-filled event and a segue from being just an online exclusive community to having sweet and short conversations from the lovely people who helped us in our quest for empowering YOUR purchasing power as a consumer.

If we’ve learned anything in our pursuit of sharing free beauty samples with our roommates, it’s that Sample Room is a goldmine of wonderful beauty junkies and enthusiasts with the same interest in mind: to find what’s best for us without breaking the bank.

See you in our next round of events, roommates!
