Loreal Mat Magique BB Veil (poreless matte finishing powder) Review

by , in
Sharing to you my thoughts, first impression on this finishing powder from L'oreal, this is a gift from my best friend, she said this powder is the favorite of the blogger that she s currently following, She said, why not give it a try. So here's my honest review on this product, I hope you will find this helpful.

Product claims: 

  • Breathable coverage
  • Instantly fairer and brighter
  • suitable for sensitive skin
  • Long lasting fresh matte look
  • Impeccably perfected finish and ultra sensational velvet soft touch.
  • Sebum absorbent for a 12 hour fresh matte wear

Price: P300.00 and available on leading stores.

Packaging

The packaging is super nice, I love the color and its glossy box, especially the elegant packaging of the product itself.





I got the shade G2, it looks a little bit dark, but it does a pretty good job on my skin, as you will see on my before and after picture.


It's super travel friendly and it's packaging is made of plastic but it's sturdy and cute. This contains 7g.


As you can see here it does contains 2 divisions, it has a circular sponge at the back of the product.


And the mirror is located at the back of the foundation itself, Hmmmmmm!!!!!!!!


Showing to you my before and after picture, just a little bit background, I only used powder for the sake of this review, no kilay and blush and the rest of the makeup, just pure pressed powder. So I hope you're able to noticed my before picture, I have discoloration surrounding my eye area and the product did a pretty good job on it's coverage. It did cover the discolorations on my face and it's effect is super matte indeed, 

                              Before                                                              After


What I like:
  •  It gives a good coverage, as what I have mention it covers my under eye discoloration.
  •  It has a matte coverage as per product claim.
  •  It did cover my sneaking pores, hahahaha!!!!!!!
  •  The product was able to control  my oily T zone for a maximum of 8 hours.
  •  It's comfortable to wear.
  •  It did not irritate my sensitive skin.

What I don't like:

  • So far the only thing that bothers me is the mirror, I love that there's a mirror, but its hard for me to apply the powder and flip the compartment again just to get products on the other side. it's a little bit hassle flipping over, when applying and at the same time checking yourself on the mirror.
I hope you may find this helpful. Thank you and Godbless.

Best regards,

Cykaniki

Bacolod Trip

by , in
Blessings, blessings, blessings, I'll say it again blessings. For me circumstances are blessings, sometimes we may not see it right there and then, but for sure it's present everywhere.



Sharing to yo my innermost gratitude last July 16 to 20, I was invited to be part of my friends wedding in Bacolod and I am one of the person who co-coordinated with their wedding, did some makeup gig and did some videos and reviews. It was a very fruitful trip.

I'll start with July 16, we arrive exactly 7pm, took a van going to 11th street Bed and Breakfast In, that place is super affordable, we just paid P650/room for one night , because the next day we will be checking in to the Hotel reserved for us wherein the reception of the wedding will be held. By the way in one room, there are 3 beds. We're not that choosy because P650 room is non aircon. Anyway that Inn offered free painit, we have free coffee and toasted bread early in the morning. After a cup of coffee we visited their Cathedral, It was a huge Church and the aisle is too long. I even joked my friend that if ever she will be married in this church you need to have an epic walk going to the alter.






After that We also visited their Museum, there are a lot of old Alter things especially Vest.





My friends Anamarie and Decelyn

After that, we go directly to Grand Circle inn, and did our preparation, me and my friends help with the decors and stuff that night and we took our lunch at the Masskara, guys the chicken there is super delicious and after that we go back to the hotel to do some preparation again. I also practiced some easy dance moves for trumpets and Running man challenge because the couple requested to have a mob dance after the wedding and we did record a bit, check my Vlog on it, it was super fun.

As coordinator we need to check if the call time of every people involved will be monitored, we slept nearly 1am and our call time was 2am, that was a little nap, hahaha, but everything went fine. Early we did call the makeup artist, because everybody's call time is 4am. To make the story short, It was a successful church wedding. 

Here comes the reception part. Unfortunately the files I have in the US did not play on their Laptop so we used the laptop of the groom, praise God everything works well, and I became the operator of audio and video because of that incident. hahaha, multi tasking isn't it? 

After the wedding, everybody's happy and praising God for everything and here's the additional Blessings. The couple gave us a tour on Mambukal Resort and Campuestuhan, It was indeed full of fun, I will be posting some photos to let you see. In Campuestuhan we paid P150/person for the entrance fee. There are a lot of rides, you check their websites regarding their rides rate.Campuestuhan site
