Lancome says Bonjour, Beauty Bloggers! ^^

Bonjour my lovelies…

Wow, the Indonesian beauty blogger community really is growing up right now, cause we got an invitation to attend the launch of Lancome’s much acclaimed foundation: Teint Miracle! ^^

We’re gonna have a full make over session using Lancome skincare and make up products, so exciting!

Julia Robert as the face of the Teint Miracle campaign. She looks so gorgeous!

Beauty bloggers arrived already in Sogo Beauty Lounge, PIM 2 and were busy taking pictures!

Snacks! The brownies looked yummy.. ^^

IMG_2975_resize

I was wondering if I can buy a chair & a desk like this (but in pink!) and then put it in my room, hehe..

IMG_2972_resize

All these makeup for us to try!

IMG_2973_resize

Oooohhh…

IMG_2974_resize

It’s the wet tissue from Lancome to cleanse your face, cute! ^^

The white roses everywhere.. It’s the symbol of Lancome, and it represents feminity.

Lancome perfumes: (l-r) Miracle, Tresor in Love, Hypnose, Magnifique

I sniffed all of them and my fave one was Tresor in Love, smells so wonderful! It’s a Fruity Floral fragrance and the notes are:
Top Notes: Nectarine accord, Pear, Bergamot
Heart Notes: Turkish Rose Essence, Jasmine
Base Notes: Cedar wood, Musk

Stella is chosen to be the model of our make over, so she will have her makeup done by Ronne from Lancome!

IMG_2990_resize

Okay first step, cleanse your face with Tonique Douceur  as the toner and Galateis Douceur as the cleansing milk.. So fresh and really remover my makeup thoroughly.. ^^

IMG_2995_resize

Okay, now that our face is make up free, Irma from Lancome Indonesia is ready to share us a wee bit story about the brand.

Lancome Genifique Activating Concentrate

This product is a total miracle, I tell you what! After I use this, Stella was telling me that the redness on my face is all minimized! You can check it out in the photo below.

Lancome Genefique Eye Cream

I don’t have panda eyes whatsoever so I don’t know the difference yet, but it does give a soothing feeling, so I like it..

IMG_3010_resize_副本

The famous Lancome Hydra Zen Neurocalm moisturizer..

Kate Middleton used this for her wedding day! Must be a very good product..

Royal Wedding_Page_2

The report was all over the media..

Royal Wedding_Page_1

When I tried it, it feels like a very light gel moisturizer and it doesn’t feel heavy at all. And the description in the packagng says that it soothes and relieve stress. Perfect for me.. ^^ 

IMG_2991_resize

Lancome UV Expert GN Shield

It says to be Lancome’s very own BB Cream, the coverage is sheer to medium for me, so if you want a lighter base for your makeup, this product is definitely the answer! It has 50 SPF PA +++, which will protect your skin from harmful radiation and UV rays.

IMG_3022_resize

My face after the all the steps above.. We were instructed to do the makeup in half of our face so we can see the difference. Can you see it? I put the makeup on my left side (your right).

IMG_2997_resize

Ronne from Lancome continues to explain more about the products and of course the newest sensation, Teint Miracle!

IMG_2981_resize

The star of the show: Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation! ^^

The description from its press release:

WITH TEINT MIRACLE, LANCÔME REINVENTS BARE SKIN PERFECTION

  • 10 years of research, 7 patents pending: LANCÔME invents the 1st foundation that recreates the AURA of perfect skin.
  • By recreating an IDEAL NATURAL LIGHT, every complexion is adorned with the AURA of perfect skin, with its original sparkle.
    • Instantly, complexion appears lit-from-within. Sublimely bare, naturally flawless
    • Infused with skincare active ingredients, its texture intensely hydrates skin for 18 hours, leaving it instantly luscious and plumped.
    • Day after day, this hydration reinforces TEINT MIRACLE’s results: skin is smoothed, more able to reflect light and gains transparency to better reveal its inner light. Even after make-up removal.
    • Enriched with soothing ROSE extract, TEINT MIRACLE also minimises the appearance of dyschromia, for a unified pristine complexion.
    • SPF 16 for daily PROTECTION against ultra-violet rays.
    • Dermatologically tested formula: suitable for all skin types, even sensitive.
    • Non-oily, non-comedogenic. * comparison with traditional Lancôme foundation.

After using this Teint Miracle foundation, my skin feels so smooth and radiant, miracle miracle!

IMG_3040_resize

Next step is the concealer, this Lancome Effacernes is great to really highlight my under eyes and make it smooth.. 

IMG_3025_resize

Set the make up with Lancome Compact Foundation..

IMG_3027_resize

The Maqui Loose powder! Oh I love this powder, really cover the face and it’s so soft..

Oh Yes, I do take notes. I’m a very into-detail-kind-of-girl, but I tend to forget things if I don’t write it down, so I have to write notes.. ^^

Meanwhile, let’s see how the other beauty bloggers are doing, ok?
Haaiiiiii…

IMG_3029_resize

Carnellyn, smileeee… ^^ See the difference in her half & half face?

IMG_3030_resize

Stella was being so serious, hehehe..

IMG_3031_resize

Nissa is having fun with the makeup! ^_^

IMG_3032_resize

Left is Carryn and Hannah on the right were busy with the skin care..

IMG_3034_resize

After the loose powder, I’m using the Lancome blush 06 for shading and lighter one #21 to the apples of my cheek..

IMG_3044_resize

After that is the eyes, another quick tip: put some loose translucent powder to the undereye to prevent any fallout when you apply the eye makeup.

IMG_3048_resize eye

Like this.. Don’t forget to brush it out after you’re done, ok?

IMG_3049_resize

Ooohhh… Lancome Doll Eyes Ombre Absolue palettes eyeshadow! Other beauty bloggers chose the neutral (one from the right), and the pink one (one from the left) while I chose the green one. 

After that, I used the Kohl Eye Pencil and the Artliner Waterproof (sorry forgot to take pictures)  to line my eyes..

IMG_3066

Done with the eyes! Well almost.. You know what’s missing, right?? Yup, the mascara!

IMG_3053_resize

I’m holding the Lancome Ôscillation Powerbooster Mascara, it’s white and it acts as the mascara base. It vibrates too! My hands was shaking when I use this, ok la not like an earthquake, hehehe.. 

IMG_3059_resize

And this is… The oh-so-famous Lancome Ôscillation Mascara

I remember when I first saw Michelle Phan (the fabulous Youtube beauty guru and Lancome’s Video Make Up Artist) using this mascara, I was so curious, was it really that good? Oh, and then I top it off with Lancome Hypnose Mascara (sorry forgot to take picture again). This is the best part, I tell you, I can wear 3 amazing mascaras on my lashes at the same time! Hahahaha.. ^^

The result? Well, the truth speaks for yourself. 

Tadaaaa…

IMG_3058_resize2

Can you believe it? It’s like I’m wearing lash extension, everyone was praising how long my lashes are.. I didn’t have to use eyelash curler cause of the Oscillation mascara itself will help you to curl and give your lashes extra volume! ^^

IMG_3070_resize

Finished look, it’s the FOTD.. Open-mouthed smile 

Love love love…

Btw, how’s everyone else is doing??

IMG_3075_resize

Ronne and Stella is still busy doing the eye makeup, looking cute, Stel! ^^

IMG_3077_resize

Hannah’s FOTD, gorgeous eyes! ^^

IMG_3076_resize

Stella is finally done with the makeup, hallo girl…

IMG_3080_resize'

You look lovely, Stella! ^^

After that, the make over session is done..  We sure have fun!! And yes, I've charged my camera’s battery, I’ve learned my lesson, hehe..

It’s time for goody bag!

Curious to know what’s in there?

IMG_3084_resizea

Kyaaa… It’s Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation in full size for us to try… I couldn’t be happier.. Open-mouthed smileOpen-mouthed smileOpen-mouthed smile
