Beauty Roundup: H&M Makeup in PH, tween fave Careline rebrands, and anti-pollution skincare
Makeup, makeup, and more makeup! This week’s roundup has got to be one of the most exciting ones yet as big things are coming to our shores and new-ins are having us do the happy dance. Known for her rose gold packaged goods, Charlotte Tilbury is stepping into the liquid lippie arena (to much praise and delight) with 10 new lipsticks that we never knew we needed. Claudia Schiffer is back in all her gorgeous glory as she unveils a collaboration that is as super as she is, and Maybelline has got us slaying our brow game ASAP. Did we mention that one of our favorite teeny bopper brands has gotten a huge (and very millennial) makeover? Who’s ready for some jelly?
A Supermodel Collection
When it comes to low-key fab makeup looks and looking your best, supermodels know plenty of secrets. So it’s no surprise that when a legendary model decides that she wants to come out with a collection of makeup, even makeup artists are getting super excited. Claudia Schiffer, one of the world’s most successful and OG “It Girls” has teamed up with ArtDeco Cosmetics to release a limited-edition line that consists of lipsticks, nail polishes, blushes, pencils, and a couple of eye shadows, too. The line is set for release on September 5, and based on the teasers of Lisa Eldridge and Claudia herself, we can expect prettily packaged and absolutely vibrant products!

Goin’ Loca for the Lippie
She may be a little late to the liquid lipstick game but with the announcement of her Hollywood Liquid Matte Lipsticks ($34), Charlotte Tilbury is making us swoon, salivate over, and covet each and every shade. With a velvet matte finish, these super pigmented yet comfortable liquid lipsticks will come in 10 shades inspired by Old Hollywood glam. With ingredients like beeswax and hyaluronic acid, you can be sure to have long lasting staying power as well as a hydrating formulation. We’ve got our eye on the classic red shade called Screen Siren, the dusty pink called Dolly Bird, and of course a classic nude called Best Actress. The lippies are already available on the Charlotte Tilbury site!

Did you know that retail brand H&M is not just known for affordable and stylish clothing but also for some pretty awesome makeup? The Swedish company released their very own cosmetics line a couple of years ago, which was well received by the European market. And while most of us just gushed and wished we could try some of their products, H&M now has a wonderful surprise for their Filipino customers - the beauty and cosmetics line is now coming to the PH!
Launching on September 15 at their flagship store in SM Mega Fashion Hall, you will now be able to get your hands on their blushes, concealers, foundations, eye shadows, hair products, lipsticks, and so much more! Coming just in time for Fall season, we can expect deep, dark hues and playful neutral palettes. The line will also hit other H&M stores later on in the coming months including Robinsons Place Manila, SM North Edsa, Festival Mall, Ayala Center Cebu, SM Mall of Asia, and Greenbelt 4.

Brow Down To This!
Talk about perfect brows for days! Maybelline Philippines has just announced another new and exciting product that they’ve released here in the PH and we are buzzing! Following the successful launch of their Fit Me Collection, Maybelline is at it again and this time, they’ve got our brows in mind. The new Tattoo Brow Gel Tint (P599) is the perfect product that any busy girl will need to complete their makeup look. A gel that’s meant to be left on for at least two hours can give you perfect brows for up to three days! No worries, too, because peeling it off is meant to be gentle and pain-free. You can now grab your very own Tattoo Brow Gel at select Maybelline counters.
I Am Here To Slay
Despite the steep price tag, Pat McGrath’s collections always get sold out even before we can click the “Add to Cart” button. So we're pretty thrilled that the iconic makeup artist to the stars and supermodels has announced that she’s coming out with a permanent, 61-piece collection that will be available all year round.
Pat McGrath Labs will release the permanent line piece by piece, starting on September 16 with the lip products. There will be 12 lip liners and 40 lipsticks! Nine of them will be Matte Trance while the remaining 31 are Luxe Trance lipsticks. On September 28, Pat will release everything else including the Mothership Eye Palettes ($125) which comes in three color schemes: Subversive, Sublime, and Subliminal. The palettes will have everything from glitter to sparkle as well as matte shades. The entire collection will also be available on Sephora starting October 6.

Great Skin is Simple
It takes very little to get us intrigued about products and routines, so when a brand promises clear and healthy skin through natural and simple ways, we listen. Simple Skincare recently put up a Pop Up shop and Meet and Greet event at Watsons SM Makati last August 11, where skincare lovers got a chance to meet the new ambassadors of the UK brand and find out their secrets to clear and healthy skin. With special deals on their micellar water and cleansing wipes, everyone had a great time bonding over skincare stories and routines at the Simple Days event. Brand ambassadors Vina Guerrero, Mayesa delos Santos, and Anthea Bueno were all in attendance as well.
We’re Going To The Nuxe Level
Shout for joy girls because thanks to the Rustan's Beauty Addict event, we learned that NUXE is having a 50-60% off sale this weekend! You can now shop and stock your favorite products from the Parisian brand. It's the perfect opportunity to try out their signature oils, creams, and lip balms on offer, and if you don't know where to start, we've got a quick guide on our faves. Happy shopping!
Anyone up for a bit of nostalgia? One of our favorite tween brands has not only gotten a huge makeover, but is also launching a bunch of epic new products! Drugstore fave Careline is giving us the #feels with their lit new packaging and awesome additions. They’ve got an amazing new line of liquid lipsticks in matte and metallic finishes. An early fave is Wallflower, an unconventional blue-gray matte that immediately creates a statement pout!
From the very young and hip designs, to a rising anticipation for their soon-to-be released felt tip eyeliner, multi-sticks, and brow pencils, the team and their Girl Gang leader Andrea Brilliantes are starting a movement that just screams GIRL POWER! Watch out for PV's swatchfest soon!
Shield Your Skin
Our skin goes through a lot during the day. From the pollution we face every time we step out of the house to the stress we feel at work or school, our skin is exposed to a lot of damaging factors. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up on healthy skin! Watsons Philippines has recently unveiled a line of revolutionary skincare that aids in healing and protecting your skin for the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
The Pure Beauty Urban Shield line, created by Korean dermatologist Dr. Seong J. Kim, is infused with pomegranate, the most natural (and potent) shield against skin damaging elements. The line consists of Makeup Remover Cleansing Wipes, Clarifying Foaming Cleaner, Clarifying Toner, Reviving Serum, Reviving Eye Gel, Protective Day Lotion, Renewal Night Cream, and a Recharging Mask. So if you’re looking to beef up your skincare regimen for protection against the elements, you might want to give these a try. Check out the line at your nearest Watsons!
