Kudos to Covergirl!

Bongga and blushing
Kris Aquino isn’t called the “Queen of All Media” for no reason. And this newest one will have you blushing - literally!

The new Kris Blushes (P195) are available in three shades: First Love (baby pink), Lasting Love (bright pink), and New Love (mauve pink). Shop the new blushes on Lazada and let us know if you love, love, love them!
Mabuhay and cute… or whatevah
OH MY GULAY, PEOPLE! The collection we never knew we needed is dropping, and it is bursting with Pinoy pride! Continuing to embrace his Filipino heritage, YouTube sensation Bretman Rock has teamed up with ColourPop Cosmetics for a collection of Filipino flag-inspired hues. The Bretman Rock x ColourPop Collection will feature two sides to the beauty guru: his “Lit” side and “Wet” side. The Lit Collection will play around with warmer, reddish hues while the Wet Collection plays on the cooler, bluish hues. The lineup includes 8-pan eyeshadow palettes, blushes, liners, lip glosses, matte lippies, and ColourPop’s newest product - Glittery Obsessed Liquid Body Glitter ($8)! The collection drops on November 9 on the ColourPop website so you better start refreshing that webpage.

The new generation
Nothing beats a good revamp and reformulation on a star product. Aside from their newest flagship store in New York, Glossier has been working on a new take for an old fave. Their Generation G lipsticks ($18) just got a chic makeover! Listening to their customers, the brand has improved both the formulation and the packaging, so fans can expect less fragile lippies and more bang for their buck The sheer, diffused and matte lippies will still come in the 6 original shades: Cake (peach), Like (cool pink), Crush (hot pink), Leo (brown), Zip (bright red), and Jam (deep berry) with the same uncanny ability to adapt to any skin tone!
