Filipinos are taking over the universe!
The 2017 Miss Universe Pageant will be held in the Philippines early next year, and aside from the boost it will give the local tourism industry, we’re looking forward to the opportunity it will give for Filipino talents to shine! Not only is MAC Cosmetics the official makeup brand for the pageant, an all-Filipino makeup team will be charged with the beauty requirements of all the contestants. The crazy talented team will also include Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach’s makeup artist Gery Penaso. Both MAC Cosmetics and Miss Universe believe in the celebration of diversity and this partnership is the perfect start to what is to be one memorable night in beauty.

Life is like a box of chocolate palettes
Enjoy the pleasures of your favorite sweet treats, without the calories! Known for their incredibly good quality, high pigmentation shadows at affordable prices, ZOEVA Cosmetics has come out with the Plaisir Box containing three luxuriously-designed eyeshadow palettes. We’ve already nabbed Caramel Melange (warm toned mattes and shimmers) but we can’t help adding this to our Sephora wishlist!
The box also contains the cult fave Cocoa Blend palette as well as Blanc Fusion (cooler toned mattes and shimmers). At P4,200, it seems a bit steep but considering that you’re actually getting a total of 30 quality shadows, we feel that the price is worth it. Shop the Plaisir Box over at Sephora PH.
Sugar, spice, and everything nice
Alright, you girls probably know what we’re about to gush on about just from the title. We haven’t had enough of the cute makeup collabs, and we’re definitely looking forward to getting our hands on makeup with girl power! The Powerpuff Girls are the latest makeup line care from Korean brand Peripera, and the skincaretainment covers a huge range of products: from cushion foundations to tints and eyeshadows. Save the world before bedtime, and look fabulous while doing so!
Girl bosses will love the Blossom Cushion Compact, eyeshadow palette, hand cream, and lip tint. Sweet gals can play with the earth-toned eyeshadow palette, or an Ink Velvet Matte lippie. And if you’re feeling spunky and tough like Buttercup, there’s also a hand cream, eyeshadow palette, plus a lengthening mascara! The collection is expected to drop very soon so keep checking the official Peripera website.

Anyone for some Tweed and Coco?
If you’re a makeup collector and love a good high end, luxury find, then you’re going to love this. And we mean, looooveee. Chanel has just released their most luxurious collector piece yet, and it isn’t a bag. The Chanel Ombres Lamées De Chanel Eyeshadow Palette is the gift to ask Santa for! Embossed with the iconic Chanel tweed textures found in their bags, shoes and coats, this gold-bronze and shimmer palette is everything Chanel stands for: class and timeless luxury. Priced at a whopping $105, it’s a splurge but one that will definitely be a crown jewel in your collection.
