[Review] L'oreal Lucent Magique BB Cream

If I am not mistaken, this is the first beauty product review that I have written. The creators of the  BDJ Box encourages their subscribers to review the contents inside. Since I won one last week, I would like to give back by writing about the products.  I'm new to beauty blogging so pardon me if I miss out some points. 


The first product that I tried was the L'oreal Lucent Magique BB Cream. Why? It's because it reminded me of Korean cosmetics. BB cream is a Korean innovation and I am curious at the western brands's take on it.

Here is the official statement from the BDJ Box:


L'oreal Lucent Magique Skin Illuminating BB Cream 
Instantly brightens skin and evens out your skin colour with its lightweight formula.

As shown above, the sample came in a small 5mL squeeze bottle. I started using it on my birthday. The content is a viscous glossy white cream. The product spread smoothly to my face upon application. True to its claim of being lightweight, I could not feel the heavy powder finish that I usually get with other Korean brands. 

The result? This product gave me an instant illuminating effect as it proclaimed. My skin gave out that pearly sheen which is just light and not so 'in-your-face'. I like it. It seems that my face really gave out that glow. It reflected light excellently! As for the other effects, I now have firmer skin. I guess this product also have anti-aging ingredients. 

For breakouts, I cannot tell you that much. I usually have tiny pimples on my forehead and cheeks, which pops out every now and then. It didn't change or disappear with the BB cream. But the product did provide a decent concealment for my blemishes. 

Whitening? This part requires long term observation. As far as I have experienced, the whitening effect of this product was the instant pearly sheen it did on my face. 

I am currently using this sample once a day and it has lasted for more than five days now. Overall, I like this product and I am all the more curious about its long term effects. I already asked the saleslady in a department store about it and its price is P695.00. Hmmm?

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the

Proud to be a Bella

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi

My Playlist

My taste for music spans a lot of genre! I like Pop, Rock, Alternative, K-pop, J-pop, and RnB. What makes me like the song is the lyrics foremost, and rhythm would be next. I am not really a music junkie. I can't even sing! But I turn to music to make me relax whenever I'm stressed out. It also makes me forget time. As of the moment, my playlist involves a lot of K-Pop songs, thanks to Rain for that matter. There are also Filipino, English and Japanese songs. When I play music, I really pay attention to it. I listen to the rhythm, the tempo, the artist's voice, and the overall emotions of the song. That was how my music critique self was born! It's been a long time since I posted an album review. My playlist for the moment is as shown below. I usually put it on shuffle so this is not ranked according to how I like the music. Credits of the YouTube videos that I embedded goes to their respective owners.  1. My Way by Rain - This is the only song which made me cry
