Beauty News Roundup: Refillable contour kits, cute balms, and Drew Barrymore in MNL
When it comes to beauty updates and exciting new releases, we’ve got you covered. September has just come to an end but the fun (and stream of goodies) doesn’t stop here. We’ve got the latest lippies from Avon, MAC’s newest celebrity collection teaser, another surge of cuteness from Tony Moly and so much more! So sit back, relax, and welcome October with us as we celebrate all things beauty!
Their latest innovation, the Ultra Color Indulgence Lipsticks, makes the big claim as the lipstick “has it all”. Incredibly moisturizing, richly pigmented, and super lightweight, this new formula aims to give that extra boost to your makeup look, without stripping your lips of moisture. The line offers eight shades designed to suit every skin tone, and retails for just P399!
Crazy for more Kat Von D
From holiday sets to delicious collaborations, beauty mogul Kat Von D is on a roll in the makeup department. With several of her products becoming “cult favorites” (her Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks and Tattoo Liners are makeup addict must-haves) she has been upping her game by focusing on what her loyal consumers have been asking for. Her latest announcement sent people buzzing: the popular Shade and Light Contour Powders are now available in a refillable palette!
The freedom to customize and refill her incredibly pigmented and blendable contour and highlighter powders will allow you to create your perfect contour kit for just $49. The pans retail for $14 (small highlighter pans) and $16 (large contour powders) and are now available on Sephora.com. And if you haven’t found your perfect match yet, Kat Von D will be launching even more contour and highlight shades come 2017!

Lip smacking-ly cute!
We first gushed and went crazy over the Tony Moly x Pokémon skincare line a few weeks ago. The line is officially here, AND Tony Moly has announced a 15% price reduction on all products! Thank goodness for that because we’re going to need some extra moolah for the Tsum Tsum x Lip Smacker Lip Balm collection!
The Japanese-style egg-shaped lip balms are not only moisturizing and deliciously flavored, but also feature some of the best-loved Disney characters. From honey-flavored Winnie the Pooh to strawberry-flavored Minnie Mouse, these lip balms are definitely something to add to your list. The collection includes eight character designs and is priced at $4.95 a piece. Now before you go gaga, these little collectables are limited edition and are only available online. Shall we start calculating shipping costs?

Flower Beauty in Manila? Is this Drew?
Even if you haven’t been checking your Instagram feed, chances are you’ve spotted the photo above while browsing online. Hollywood actress Drew Barrymore was spotted in the beauty section of SM Makati a few days ago, sparking rumors of her bringing her cosmetics line to the Philippines. Well, just to get you guys a little excited (and a whole lot more hopeful) of this coming true, let’s take a peek at some of the bestsellers of Flower Beauty.
The E.E. Erase Everything Ultimate Foundation ($12.98) is a crowd favorite with its cream-like formula and lightweight feel to the skin. The built-in brush applicator looks like it’ll make for a nifty travel companion! Meanwhile, the Kiss Stick High-Shine Lip Color ($6.98) and Lip Radiance High Shine Lip Lacquer ($7.98) are lip colors that pack a punch. Creamy, pigmented and super moisturizing, these formulas promise to last all day while plumping your lips. Both are solid favorites among beauty gurus! Drew also has a great product to take your kilay game to the next level. The Take a Brow Complete Brow Kit ($9.98) is a quad that includes a brow taming wax and three universally flattering brow powders to fill in your brows easily. Flower Beauty is currently only available at Walmart, so we’re hoping that Drew’s visit will change that!
All that glitters is MAC
What can we say? MAC is coming out with every collection we could possibly ever want. From Star Trek to Taraji Henson to Selena, the cosmetics brand has just announced the continuation of yet another collection fit for a queen. Or in this case, a diva! Following the success of her All I Want lipstick collaboration with MAC, Mariah Carey is now coming out with her own glitter-packed collection that we just can’t wait to get our hands on. The pieces that have been teased so far include two lipsticks, a lipglass and a bronzer – all shiny, shimmery and downright sparkly! Anyone else getting Glitter vibes? No word yet on when the collection officially launches but we’re thinking that with all this glitter, it may be a holiday collection that will have us humming “All I Want For Christmas”.
