Lancôme Beauty Blogger Gathering

Few weeks ago I received an invitation from Lancôme to their Beauty Blogger Gathering to introduce their newly launched Maqui Miracle liquid and compact foundation along with the L'Absolu Crème De Brillance lipgloss. We were also introduced to their 2 minutes aura service and tour around Lancôme counter. This event was held at the newly renovated Lancome counter Senayan City.

This is actually second invitation from Lancôme, but since I couldn't make it to the first one, I tried to make time for the second one. There were six bloggers attending these event. Stella, Priscilla, Mbak Desy, Carnellyn, Naomi and me. Most of them I've met at some events before. But this is the first time I met Naomi.

The event started with Counter Tour. Lancome counter in Debenhams is newly renovated and is one of the best Lancome counters in Indonesia. We were assisted going around the counter by Ms. Irma and Ms. Ronne where we were shown the extensive amount of Lancôme collections including skincare, makeup and perfume.

Lancôme has a very wide variety of skincare targeting for different age range and skin problems

This is special corner for customer with Lancôme Absolue where they can have consultation and skin treatment as well. Julia Roberts is the beauty ambassador for this line.

After that, of course we were introduced to their latest product, Maqui Miracle liquid and compact foundation. Basically this is a long wearing foundation with brightening effect. The liquid foundation come in just three shade selection while the compact foundation has a wider shades, which is six. And this compact foundation offers the highest UV protection ever in a compact foundation which is SPF35/PA+++

Maqui Miracle and Teint Miracle liquid foundations. Both has transparent pump only different color on the base of the pump. Maqui Miracle has white base pump while Teint Miracle has silver base pump.

As you can see, the compact foundation has wider range of shade.

Another star of the event that day was L'Absolu Crème De Brillance lipgloss. Different than lipgloss in general, L'Absolu Crème De Brillance delivers more opaque shade. Kinda like a liquid lipstick. Available in 10 shades.

Next we were introduced to Lancôme 2 minutes Aura Service. Basically is a way to touch up your make up by the end of the day. Okay, I made a mistake here. I supposed to wear full make up but because I read the invitation from my blackberry and the font was extremely tiny, I didn't read the instruction to wear full make up. I thought this is going to be a makeover where all of my makeup will be removed anyway. Pfft. But also, my skin was having a terrible breakout (still is, actually) so makeup didn't look good on me. Ugh! But still, I tried the 2 minutes Aura Service.

Here's what you need.

So when you need to somewhere after office hour but you don't have time to touch up, all you have to do is 2 minutes Aura touch up. First thing to do is, obviously, blot the excess oil from your face. Then apply a tiny amount of Genifique on face. Since my skin was having a dermatologist treatment, I was suggested to not use Genifique but use moisturizer instead. I used Lancôme Hydra Zen moisturizer. The next layer would be BB Expert GN-shield. And then foundation. I used Teint Miracle liquid foundation. After that you can retouch your blush, lipstick, mascara and all that jazz.

After the gathering, Lancôme of course didn't let us leave empty handed. Each and every blogger were given a goody bag consists of a full size Maqui Miracle compact foundation, a full size L'Absolu Crème De Brillance lipgloss, samples of Genifique, BB Expert GN-shield and Teint Miracle foundation and of course press release about the products.
