Mini Haul (Plus Discovery) From The Great L'Oreal Sale!

Unless you've turned your beauty radar off, you probably've heard from your favourite local beauty bloggers that L'Oreal Paris Philippines is having a month long sale! You don't want to pass on the opportunity to get as much as 45% off on all of their products from makeup to hair colour to skin care. Here's a snippet of their hot offerings:
  • True Match Foundations - from Php 899 to only Php 600
  • Color Riche Lipsticks - from Php 625 to only Php 400
  • ALL Mascaras (yes, Miss Manga included!) - Php 500 only
  • ALL Eyeliners - Php 400 only
  • Revitalift Laser Day/Night Cream - from Php 1499 to only Php 800
  • Excellence Cream Hair Color - from Php 495 to only Php 400
During the Miss Manga launch, I snagged on some must-haves that cost me only a total of Php 1500!

On the same day, I got to meet the new L'Oreal Mat Magique BB Veil. It's their latest powder that promises a poreless, matte finish. I also got to take home one of the two shades locally available, N2.

Between the two shades, N2 is the lighter one. Since I'm currently wearing a tan, I found this to be too light for me. I liked it a lot when I tried it hence made a quick dash to Landmark Makati to get the darker shade. I'm very pleased to find out that it's slashed from Php 399 to only Php 300!

L'Oreal Mat Magique BB Veil in N2 and G1

The packaging as you can see is very simple, feels a little on the flimsy side, but chic and presentable nevertheless. Underneath the powder's a bin for a mirror and a sponge.

While I wouldn't call it my new HG finishing powder, for its price, it certainly is one of the better super matte finish powders out there. It's finely milled and gives medium to full coverage when applied using a sponge. I like using it on its own during decent skin days and over True Match when I need more coverage. It holds up really well on our humid weather too where it stays on for good 4-5 hours before I need to blot my t-zone. While it looks natural and photogenic under natural light, it has SPF 32+++ which may cause a white cast when flash is used.

  1. Only two shades are available for the veil? I got N1 and it's too light for me :(

  2. Base-centric haul? Hmm... I'd go the same way. I've never actually tried a L'oreal foundation ever. :))

  3. Loreal Bb veil looks promising. Sayang may whitecast lang, love ko pa naman magpapic lagi ng may flash.☺ but I think it's worth a try since affordable nman kaya macheck nga to pagpunta namin sa mall. btw, does this break you out when you use it? Thanks.

  4. So far no breakouts so YAYYYY :)

  5. Try True Match! A lot of beauty bloggers swear by it too. ;)

  6. I just saw 2 at Landmark Makati. Try G1 (Golden Ivory). It's not as light as N1 but not too warm too. :)
