Marionnaud Philippines and Lancôme Beauty Workshop

Last Saturday, I attended a beauty workshop covering skincare and makeup. I have a growing penchant for such so I made sure to make it to the event amidst the stormy weather. It was a very productive day for me. Since I came with hubby to Manila, who had to do some overtime work for his approaching out of the country business trip. We had to be in Manila way earlier. I waited several hours in the parking for SM Makati to open for my Baby and Company event. Thankfully, Lee Min Ho kept me company. ;-D I was watching City Hunter in the car. ;-D Then after covering the event, I drove to SM Mall of Asia for the workshop.

Lancome's Portable Makeup Station and Case ;-D
I was a bit challenged by the parking, I'm actually dreading it, and was tempted to just take the taxi from SM Makati. I'm driving a M/T pick-up (aww! feeling Bella Swan ;-P), I was praying to make it through the endless circles going to the parking Level 1. I made it! It's still early so again I stayed to watch the rest of the series. And then I did my strolling and my window shopping. Until, it's time. I came in promptly.

Workshop Venue besides Marionnaud.

While waiting, guests were served with blueberry muffin from Bizu. And then, the venue filled up. There were a lot of mommy bloggers in attendance who look familiar, but I just can't match them with their sites.

I ate it in a jiffy! ;-D
And then it was time, finally. They asked a volunteer from the participants for the actual demo. And Ms. Cara Co-Chua, Lancôme's Skin Care expert, headed the workshop, and Ms. Maylin, who's the make-up artist, did the actual demo.

The first part is the skincare routine of cleansing, toning, moisturizing, applying eye creams, and then the sunscreens. ;-D
They used the Lancôme's skin care lines. For their toner, they used Tonique Douceur, which is alcohol free freshener. Together with Genefique Youth Activator, they used the high-tech ultrasound machine, which sends vibration into the skin to deepen and to quicken the serum absorption.

Lancome's Genefique Youth Activator Serum... a lightly rose scented, that gives instant hydrating and nourishing boosts to the skin. "Youth is in your genes. Reactivate it!" It offers a 7 day promise to youthful, beautiful skin. I *heart*! ;-D
Lancome Teint Miracle comes with Aura-Inside™ technology, is a foundation with SPF 15 that offers a buildable  coverage with lightweight feel. It offers I'm not sure about my shade because we had to pass it around quickly, but see how it was able to cover my green veins. 
And on with the exciting makeover part, using the finest Lancôme's make up lines.

Voila! The Before and After look! ;-D
Marionnaud's management invited us to try out the Lancôme's Skin Diagnosis System, to avail of makeover, and to take advantage of the limited discounts for Lancôme's products and other purchases at Marionnaud.


Teint Miracle and Lip Gloss Love. ;-D
Lancome's Skin Diagnôs is an innovative tool that measures 6 different skin characteristics to precisely identify your key skincare concerns namely, pores, brown spots, lines & wrinkles, oil production, and hydration.
I would have wanted to try it out but I need to meet my curfew so I had to go right after. 
But not leaving without these...:-D
Discount Coupon and Lancome Skin Care Trial Set. I *heart* the Genefique and the Eye Cream. ;-D
I'm an eye cream junkie, because I tend to abuse my eyes for pulling all nighters. 
So far, I'm day 3 on Genefique and the Eye Cream, I wish I can stretch the Genefique trial size given to me to meet the 7th day. ;-D I was tempted to get the 10% + 5% discounts, but I'm way passed my shopping quota for August. Maybe soon. ;-D

ME! At the start of my day. I'm wearing uber light make up since I hope to avail of the makeover too. 
It was a long day, after this I pick up my hubby, ate my happiness meal at Jang Ga Nae. Then went to my 3rd SM Mall for the day. Thankfully, I was wearing my FitFlop Hooper, I made more than 10,000 steps for the day. ;-D

About Me

My photo

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
