The Great Megamall Adventure :))

I love malls.  However, I only go to those located in Makati (Ayala Malls and Power Plant), Manila (Robinsons Place), and Pasay (MOA).  Other than those malls are considered out of my “territory” if I may say.  So when Kanebo Philippines invited me again to another event in Megamall, I was so looking forward to a so-called “adventure!”  Oo, isang malaking adventure na para sa’kin ang magpunta sa Megamall!  Hahaha!

Of course, no adventure’s complete without sharing it with someone!  So I asked one of my best girlfriends, Val, to go share this “adventure” with me. 🙂

Thanks, Val! ♥

♥♥♥

The first stop of the “adventure” was the BEAUTY part = the Kanebo event.  Having said that, I’d like to take this opportunity to say thanks (again) to my friend Noriko Hanajima of Summit Media and Yannie Valencia of Kanebo Philippines. 😀

Thanks, Kanebo Philippines!!!

Anyway, Kanebo Philippines held a mall animation featuring their Kate line — which is already my favorite makeup line!  SWEAR!!!

Plus, Val and I were able to get free makeovers courtesy of Kanebo PhilippinesSuzzanne Tan and more freebies!!!

Use Kanebo’s Kate line to “raise the impact of your eyes, face, and lips.” 😉

Aside from the Kate line, one of my favorite Kanebo products is their Freshel White C Mineral BB Cream.  I first used it two days ago, and I instantly fell in love with it!

I use the one in Natural Beige (but there’s also the Medium Beige shade) and for those BB cream junkies, this is definitely a MUST-TRY product!!!  Today, I’m glad I was finally able to own one whole tube (after receiving a free sample from the previous Kanebo event I attended!  Heehee.)

Moving on…

The second part of the “adventure” was the FOOD AND DRINKS part = Bubble Tea and Happy Lemon.  Since I don’t get to go to Megamall that often, I wanted to try “something” that can be found there, but not in the malls I frequent.

Okay, there’s a Happy Lemon branch at Power Plant but still, this was just my second time to try it.  AND my first try wasn’t even “happy!”  For some time, I wasn’t a fan of Happy Lemon because I got disappointed when I first tried their Cocoa with Rock Salt and Cheese.  I thought it was too overrated and tasted just like any ordinary iced chocolate.  But today, that changed when I finally tried their Green Tea with Rock Salt and Cheese!!!

Bubble Tea x Happy Lemon

 Oh well, to each his own.  But yeah, consider me a fan already.  HA HA HA

And the third part of our “adventure” was seeing our (former) officemates and lovebirds KC (with her family) and Leo at Megamall!  Stay in love, you guyysss. ♥

Good luck…

…and may we ALL finally find our “careers.” =))

Looking forward to my next MALL adventure,
Mikaaa 😛

A Beauty Affair To Remember

Last week, I was able to attend a bloggers event by Kanebo Cosmetics. 😀

the so-called VIP Beauty Affair 🙂

“LIKE” Kanebo PhilippinesFacebook page here.

Kanebo Cosmetics actually dates back in 1937.

“…The company entered the cosmetics industry in the following year [1937] and quickly grew to become Japan’s second largest manufacturer of cosmetics.  Kanebo Cosmetics products are now sold in 53 countries and regions around the world.

Kanebo Cosmetics spun off from Kanebo in 2004 as a company specialized exclusively in cosmetics.  In 2006, it came under the wing of the Kao Group, Japan’s largest manufacturer of household consumer goods…”  (To know more about Kanebo‘s Company Outline, click here.)

In fact, I remember that my mom used Kanebo waaay back when I was still a kid.  So yeah, you can say that it’s already a tried-and-tested brand for years — heck, even generations!  (Read: since the 1930’s.)

Anyway, Kanebo Philippines presented three product lines during the event: Impress, Kate, and Lunasol. ♥♥♥

I can say that Kate is more youth-oriented, while Lunasol is more high-end.

As for Impress, it “is a total anti-aging skincare product line for those who know the joy of keeping themselves refined.”  Obviously, it’s a skincare line — which was actually launched on the day of the event.

Here are some things from the press kit for me to share with you:

And can I just emphasize more on “KATE”?  As in Kate Beckinsale, Kate Winslet, and of course, KATE MIDDLETON!  Hahaha, just kidding!  But yes, KAAATE!  I already love the “name,” so having a whole makeup line named after it is just. plain. PERFECT!!!  At least for me, but you already know why.  Heehee. ♥

Kanebo Cosmetics’ KATE line 🙂

Of course cocktails were served, and I even gained a new friend — Poala!  Nice, huh?

a new-found friend + cocktails = awesome sauce! 🙂

And if that wasn’t enough, I got to bring home THESE:

Kikay stuff I brought home! Yay!!! 🙂

Aside from the name (haha!), I’m already loving the Kate blush (I got the RD-1) because it’s very compact!  It can easily fit into my bag and after months of searching for a new blush (yes, it’s been a long time coming), I think I finally found it — thanks to Kanebo‘s Kate line!

So a big THANK YOU to my friend Noriko Hanajima of Summit Media and Yannie Valencia of Kanebo Philippines for inviting me last week.  Looking forward to THE next event!  (Yes, there’s another one coming up!  Heehee.) 😉

Keep calm and (as Kanebo puts it) FEEL YOUR BEAUTY,
The Lady xoxo
