Be Their Guest
With the wait for Disney’s latest masterpiece finally over, our excitement over Beauty and the Beast has reached new heights with the official launch of #HappySkinXBeautyandTheBeast! We first heard about the collab in February, and now Happy Skin’s Limited Edition Beauty and the Beast Matte Lip Kit (P1,199) is available at Happy Skin counters and at Zalora! The gloriously dusty rose shade of the liner and lipstick set is made even more wearable with the infusion of Cupuaçu Butter in both formulas, offering a deeply moisturizing treatment for the lips. You can also grab the liquid lipstick on its own for P699 so make sure to snag this in time for your movie date.
The Future of False Lashes
Even as we master contouring and drawing the perfect winged eye well enough to do them everyday, putting on a pair of falsies can feel like too much trouble and thus best reserved for special occasions. But what if you could just clip them on with ease? Magnetic lashes are a fascinating innovation that need no glue or adhesive to apply; the magnets simply stick to each other and give amazingly lush lashes that promise to last so much longer than normal falsies! One Two Cosmetics currently offers four types of magnetic lashes: Original ($69), which are your standard lashes; Bold ($69) or thicker, more dramatic lashes; Accent ($59), which are small bunches of lashes; and Filler ($59) or thin strips of lashes.
As intimidating as they may seem, these lashes won’t hurt your lids. You simply “clip” them on by placing one half on top of your lash line and the other just below it, sandwiching your actual lashes in between them. It’s very nifty though I’m not sure about how comfortable they are but if you’re tired of having curling, waiting for the glue to dry, and carefully positioning falsies, this might be something you’d want to give a go. Purchase a pair over on the One Two Cosmetics website.

#CoupleGoals with the Ultimate Pair
Is it just me, or are lip kits becoming a *thing* in the beauty world? From local faves to international standouts, the pairing of liner and lippie has been so in-demand that it’s got us wondering just how many other brands will debut similar liquid lip-liner combos. One that’s caught our eyes and possibly captured our hearts: Urban Decay’s The Ultimate Pair ($22). A kit with a full-size Vice Lipstick and a 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil, this pair means serious business. It’s currently available in four shade duos: Firebird & Jilted (hot pink), Bad Blood (true red), Ex-Girlfriend & Naked2 (cool toned nude), and Blackmail (deep berry plum). You’ll want to grab your own kit over on the Ulta website before it runs out! I’m hoping these babies land on Sephora and Philippine shores soon, too, cause truth be told: I NEED BLACKMAIL!

Dishin’ Out Some Heavy Metal(lic)
What’s another fun way to customize your pout? How about adding some metallic goodness to it! MAC Cosmetics has entered the game of metallic lipsticks, with a bit of a twist. Unlike the usual metallic liquid lipstick, MAC is bringing back the OG bullet form lippie with the MAC Metallic Lips line! Just check out that foil-matte finish.
Retailing at $17 each with 18 shades to choose from, we’re definitely looking into Foiled Rose (rosy pink) and Cold Front (periwinkle blue), which looks very similar to the Unicorn lipstick trend. There’s even Zerocool (emerald green) and Nightly Ritual (midnight blue) for more adventurous lipstick lovers! The lighter shades look like they can even double up as cream highlighters, giving it potential to become a multi-purpose product. The new lippes go on sale on March 23 on the MAC website!

With a new demi-matte formulation and gorgeous shades, these new kits are Kylie’s latest baby since her Kylighters. Pegged to be more comfortable than her super matte formula, these liquid lippies offer a velvety effect similar to combining her matte lippie and gloss. Choose from Rosie (mauve pink), Harmony (old rose), Charm (pinky nude), and Dazzle (reddish nude). They’ve just dropped today so if you missed them, better watch out for when stocks will be available next!
