Beauty Roundup: Egg-shaped foundations, “woke” skincare, and Riri eyeliner
How is June already over? We may have bid sunny blue skies goodbye, but these beauty updates are perfect for chasing the rainy day blues away! This week’s roundup includes a foundation in a form we’ve never seen before, and Tarte’s new sister brand for skincare. We’ve also got new lippies from Ever Bilena and a mysterious collab for Happy Skin! Read on for the good news!
We’re Lush-ting For This!
I don’t know about you, but whenever I hear Lush, I always think of their bath bombs and solid shampoo bars. The all-natural and environmentally responsible brand has won the hearts of millions with their fantastic bath care products, so we are so shookt at the fact that they are now going to be releasing their very own foundation!
Lush is launching the Lush Slap Sticks Solid Foundations ($22), a 40-shade foundation range with 3 different undertones, making finding your perfect shade that much easier! With ingredients like Indonesian coconut oil, sunflower, candelilla, Turkish rose waxes and pigment, the foundation promises to not just be long-wearing but easy to blend and light on the skin as well.
Being a Lush product, this foundation will use absolutely no plastic! The egg-shaped product has a natural black wax seal base that serves as its holder, and Lush will provide a complimentary recycled box to make them easier to transport. Unfortunately the solid foundation are an exclusive release for the UK on June 29, but we’re hoping that Lush brings these naked foundies to PH shores very soon!

Attention, nail polish lovers! Happy Skin Cosmetics just teased a new milestone on their Facebook page - their first ever nail polish collab! In the short video clip, we see two new shades of their Express Gel Polish - a girly peach and a mauve-ish berry! The caption hints at a woman who is “like a rose, is complex but beautiful, delicate but intriguing.” And intrigued we certainly are! We can’t wait to find out about the amazing woman helped create these shades. Watch out for the reveal on our IG stories!
If these lip shades could talk, they’d have a whole lot to say! Drugstore powerhouse Ever Bilena is back at it again with another new release, and this time, they’re taking their nudes with them! The EB Matte Nudes come in six new shades: Amore (nude pink), Baci (peach nude), Bellissima (berry), Caramello (tan), Fia (hot pink), and Dolce (mauve). Priced at just P165 each, you can get yourself a tube (or more) at all Ever Bilena counters and on Lazada!
I’m Wide Awake!
With tons of well-loved makeup bits like their Rainforest of the Sea Water Foundation, Shape Tape Concealer, and Amazonian Clay Blushes, Tarte Cosmetics has been a staple in many makeup bags and in our hearts. And we may yet add more! Their new sister company called Awake is a vegan, Japanese-inspired multitasking skincare range that’s been formulated with natural ingredients to help you achieve healthy and glowy skin. The packaging design looks cute and fun, and the products are made for easy use.
The Dream Dewdrops ($32) is perfect for those who struggle with skin dullness while the Balance Shot ($38) helps target oilier skin, as a rich antioxidant concentrate. There’s also the Pore Down ($38) which could be a great primer, and the Ray of Bright Radiance Moisturizer ($26) for those wanting a little bit more hydration. There are also a bunch of fun lip balms, liners and masks, making this skincare range a must-try for those who want a little bit more oomph in their routine. Shop the line here.
