Bring on the Brow
When it comes to filling in our brows, we can sometimes get a little heavy handed with our products. Let’s face it: sometimes things get a bit crazy with more than one product needed to achieve that “natural brow” look! Well, Benefit Cosmetics is at it again and this time, they’re promising easy-to-perfect brows with just one product! The Foolproof Brow Powder (P1,400) is a compact that features a brow-shaped pan with two shades of powder inside. The pan shades are split in the middle, as the shades serve different purposes. The lighter shade is perfect for filling in the front of your brows, and the darker shade will be for extending the tail of your brows and adding definition to the arch.
The formula is intended to be smudge-proof and promises 12-hour wear, making this the only brow product you’ll need on the go. The tin packaging also comes with a sponge applicator and spoolie to brush up your brows. There are three shades available so you can find a good color match for your hair. Talk about a simple product that packs a punch! Check it out at Benefit stores or shop it on Zalora PH.

High(lighter) on the Glow
Shining, shimmering, and absolutely splendid! More and more people may be into a more natural look when it comes to their makeup but there’s no denying the love and beauty in a glowy, I-can-be-seen-from-space highlighter on the tops of our cheekbones, am I right? Drugstore beauty fave Maybelline is coming out with MORE glow this November. Based on a couple of teasers from their official Instagram stories, the affordable brand is pushing for a “The glow up is real,” phase in their makeup game.
Posting a table filled with their beloved MasterChrome highlighters ($10), the IG post lead fans to their IG stories, where Maybelline were testing out TWO new highlighters, one in the most gorgeous champagne shade and the other in a duochrome finish - it literally changes color based on the lights! Currently, the MasterChrome comes just in the Molten Gold shade, which is leading everyone to believe that the two highlighters tested are going to be two new shades in the line. No word yet on anything else except that we must keep our eyes (and cheekbones) ready for November! Bring on the glow!
