Maybelline Velvet Matte: Swatches and Review


Maybelline New York Takes the Lead
with the Future of Mattes
Kiss your old mattes goodbye as Maybelline New York outdoes itself with an all-new
lipstick formulation that brings Filipinas to the next generation of lip color.
  (From Maybelline Ph's Press Info)

It's obvious that liquid lipsticks are taking the beauty industry by storm this year and I think most of my favorite make-up brands have their own already. So much to choose, so little time!

So here's something new in our local beauty market, the Maybelline velvet matte lipsticks. I finally got my hands on these pretty lippies. <3 I've been wanting to try these out but it was always out of stock. (ps. many thanks to cathy who's part of maybelline's pr for sending these over. :)

Free Food Tasting at Tokyo Bubble Tea Restaurant

Japanese food? Bubble Tea? or should I just say Milk tea? Well I'm all in for that! Tokyo bubble tea has been one of my favorite milk tea places since college! I would even go to the tomas morato branch just to buy their super yummy royal milk tea. <3 then I discovered that they also have amazing japanese food! Honestly, it's kinda pricey but at least it'll make you full. heehee.

Product Review | L'oreal Mat Magique BB Veil

I’m not the powder type of person when it comes to make-up. The reason is because I have dry and sensitive skin. I only have a couple of brands I trust when it comes to mattifying my face and I’m so glad I came across this very affordable yet effective powder that's even perfect to use for everyday. I got this from the launch of L’oreal’s Miss manga mascara and the bb veil was part of the pr kit.

Basically this powder doesn’t have that much coverage but if you want to look fresh the whole day then this one’s perfect. It doesn’t cake and doesn’t leave that white cast on your face. This is a staple in my make-up kit and I use it everyday for work. Well it depends if I’m in the mood to use a powder or not but this is my first choice. I also didn’t experience any allergies nor breakout when I used it. Lastly, as good as this powder could be, the packaging is so pretty and girly! I love the hot pink shiny color. Plus it has a mirror and sponge included.

Miss Manga launch + The Great L'oreal Sale

Last month I was invited to L'oreal 's Miss Manga product launch. I've been waiting for this mascara to arrive in the Philippines!!! I actually already knew about this product last year from US bloggers and youtubers. first thing that attracted me the most about this mascara is it's cute packaging! coming from a pink lover that I am, I told myself I should have this mascara in my collection. I only have few mascaras that I trust my short lashes with and luckily miss manga is now of them. ;)

anyway, I've been using the mascara for a month now and I can't wait to do a separate blog review about it! so here I just want to share with you guys the stuff that happened during the event and how happy I was to be invited to my 1st ever l'oreal event. 

I met and went there with my blogger friends Gem and Aya. We were a bit late because of the traffic but we were glad that the talk part of the event was just about to start. Just by the entrance, you can see how adorable the set-up is and upon entering I was instanly in a Manga Wonderland! lol. kidding aside but it was just to kawaii! oh goodness. It was one of my favorite events to date. Everything was so pink and organized. 

L'oreal once again did not disappoint. the new mascara was an instant hit and favorite. I never knew about a specific mascara for asian lashes like this one. it's now a staple in my make-up kit and can actually be used for everyday. now let me share some photos during the event and how you too should try the new Miss Manga mascara. 

Oohhhh wait didn't I say it's currently on sale? yup!! The Great L'oreal sale happened the whole month (May) and you still have 2 days to hoard your favorite l'oreal products! check out the details below and share your L'oreal haul!
