Life is good, PV girls, it is so, so good! There’s loads to be excited for, starting with all the insane sales and promos to celebrate International Lipstick Day on July 29! We're looking forward to amping up our glow with cult-favorite Hourglass Cosmetics, which will be available in the Philippines very soon. You can also enjoy a little girl-bonding by taking advantage of a crazy brow deal for you and your girlfriend. Thank goodness it's payday weekend cos you won't want to miss out!

The Brow Code

The saying goes “brows are sisters, not twins” so what better way to celebrate with your sister form another mister than by heading over to any Browhaus branch and availing of their Brow Buddies Promo! Now you and your friend can get your brows groomed at just P888 for both treatments! The normal price for a single treatment is P698 so this a pretty amazing steal!

Time for a (ex)CHANGE

What do you do with your empties? If you've been saving them up, it's time to cash them in! Shiseido is offering an incredible deal at all their stores: just bring your old or empty cosmetic containers and exchange them from Shiseido gift certificates! Makeup can be traded for one P500 Shiseido GC while skincare containers are worth two GCs.

The best part? Your makeup or skincare containers can be from any brand! You can exchange your empties until July 31 while the GCs are valid until August 31. You can check out our reviews for ideas on what to get but it's best to visit your nearest Shiseido store so you can exchange your empties and find out just what products you can use the GC with! Go, girls!
