It’s crazy how there’s always something new in the beauty world. From skincare must-haves to new collections, holiday-themed goodies and viral trends, there’s always something for us beauty girls to get excited about. This week, we spotted fall-inspired lipsticks, makeup tools that will literally help us work our magic, and holiday collections pretty enough to hang on the tree!
We wish you a merry MAC-mas!
Slay is the name of the game when it comes to MAC Cosmetics releases. The brand has been hitting us up with even more things this Holiday 2016 (I feel like we’ve been saying this for so long but come on, a new release every week? Wow!) They’ve finally introduced their official holiday collection: Nutcracker Sweet, as inspired by the whimsical tale about a little girl, her doll and their journey through the land of sweets.
Consisting of makeup kits (yes, you read that right, kits), lipsticks, liners, solo eye shadows, highlighters, pigments, powders and palettes, the collection makes sure to give you more bang for your buck! Some of the things we’re most crazy for: the Basic Brush Kit ($53) that includes five travel-size brushes perfect for every look, the Retro Matte Kit in Plum ($45) that includes an Upward Lash mascara, pout-perfect lipsticks in Dancing Flowers (matte) and Oh, Lady (retro matte liquid), and the Eye Compact in Warm ($40), which is basically the only eyeshadow palette we want to be wearing this holiday season.
The packaging has also been dubbed one of MAC’s “most covetable” ones yet, with shades of pink, gold, plum and bronze decked out on each product. The collection officially launches on October 27 on the MAC website and MAC stores, so better mark those calendars! It should arrive in the Philippines around November or early December.

Ooh La L’Oreal!
At the end of a long day, we just want to be able to take off our makeup easily and with products that are gentle on our skin. So we were happy to get L’Oreal’s Micellar Water, which have two variants for dry (Moisturizing, in the pink bottle) and oily skin (Refreshing, in the blue bottle). Promising to cleanse, remove makeup and soothe skin, we’re looking forward to being able to clean up our act with little fuss. Plus, the 250mL bottle is just P225 and easily available at the beauty section. Watch out for our review on this soon!

The perfect tools for makeup magic
Getting the prettiest palettes and most buttery-soft eye shadows would be useless if we didn’t have good brushes to apply them with, and now we can work some blending magic with these babies! Newcomer Storybook Cosmetics has announced that five Harry Potter-inspired brushes are now in production and that they expect to release the first batch in six weeks. The eye brushes feature intricately-designed wand handles and they’ve cast their spell over muggles and wizards alike. The brushes are expected to sell out quick so we’re hoping that the wands choose us as much as we want them! Follow them on Instagram for updates.
