Askmewhats Report: L'oreal Luxury Beaute Groupe Event

(Note from author: Thanks to Shen for the holler about this event!!! I had fun!!!)

Good day everyone!
I am looking forward to finish up work today as tomorrow is Labor Day!!! Meaning, no work! Yupeee!!!

Let me share to you my dear readers a wonderful event I recently attended.

The L'oreal Luxury Beaute Group Event
The event started with a welcome talk from
L'oreal's Luxury Products Division
Group Brand Manager
Ms. Kristine Marie Coronel-Dy

Ms. Jannie Villacorte

Sr. Product Manager
for Fragrances
gave us a short chat
about learning our fragrance type

It was a short introduction
we were then each given a cute box
with a nice ribbon
(I kept the ribbon as is!)

And we will play
the L'oreal Luxe Pass game

We race to the Kiehl's station
to have the chance to try on their products
and enjoy some hand massage time

Here's Bambi and Shen
at the Shu Uemura Tokyo Lash Bar

Roanne having a brow trimming session
from John Pagaduan,
the Shu Uemura Makeup Artist

It was fun to also learn
which luxury fragrance
suits me the best!
We've got personalized fragrance consultation

My fragrance type is : FRESH FLORAL

Check out the hot guys behind them
too bad they're just photos!
I think if they're really standing behind them
the ladies won't even be posing for the cam

The new fragrance
from Giorgio Armani

Attitude Extreme!

Smells oh so manly!!!

We also got to try
the drinks of the gods
from Kiehl's


Ms. Allison Salvadors
introduced us on
what's new
from Lancome Skincare!

I am so excited about it!
Hint: It's a serum!

I also saw Kim *waves* "hi KIM!!!!"
and Jamie *waves more* "hi Jamie sweetie!!!"
It was a fun beauty bloggers unite day!
With everything that's happening, I didn't have a chance to take a shot of myself!
So Shen!!! I know they're in your camera! :P

Keep smilin!
Stay Happy!


  1. You are so lucky that you can go to these types of events! looks like so much fun and I love those freebies!!

  2. It was so nice to see you after more than two months! :) :) :)

    Try the shu uemura Ace ß-G products! I got so addicted to these babies when I was in senior year college. I bet they will work well for you because you have absolutely no signs of aging yet (lucky!). I graduated from this line about a year and a half using the Phyto Black Lift line. :) Do fridge them for a cool, melting sensation!

  3. ooo how FUN!! You scored so many freebies! Yep, I agree with Jamilla, so lucky you get to go to these events!

  4. Looks like fun! I wish we had events like that around here!

  5. I am so jealous! I bet you had a blast, too. What's the green in the cup?
    BTW, Did L'Oreal mention any new duos?

  6. Jamilla, you're right! I'm lucky to be part of those who are invited to attend such event! I'm lucky as well that big companies like this give importance to beauty bloggers like us :)

    Prettybeautiful, yes! YAY For freebies, that's the best way to try on new products without making my wallet angry!

    Jensmakeupbag,oh not really personalize fragrance meaning making you your own, personalize fragrance they did is to advise you what fragrance suits you based on personality.

  18. LOL...who was it that said we had so many events in KL? guys have even more!

    Love the way the Kiehl's samples were packaged - so cute!! (sigh...I'm such a sucker for nice packaging..)

  19. Amazing freebies! :D

    As a person in advertising, I have to agree that brands are getting more and more into the bloggers. In fact, we're holding a blogger event later for one of our accounts! :D

  20. hey nikkidear! is it okay if you send me up that pic of me and shen? dayum you look good pa rin heeheeheehe.
