There’s lots to celebrate this week, PV girls, because the latest MAC Cosmetics collaboration will have you beaming with Pinoy Pride.

Who’s ready for the scoop? Let’s get reading!
A Starrr is Born!
Talk about another fabulous collaboration! If you thought MAC Cosmetics was all about just working with Hollywood stars and music icons, you’re going to flip over their newest collection! YouTube fans, it’s finally happening: Filipino-American glam guru Patrick Starrr is teaming up with the mega brand for an exciting new collection! Before he started working with famous faces like Kim K and Tyra Banks, Patrick Starrr’s first beauty job was actually working for MAC, which makes this collection even more special for the YouTuber. The limited-edition first collection (set to drop on December 14) will have 12 products including Patrick Starrr’s Set Powder ($34), a universal loose setting powder that's perfect for every skin tone. Who’s ready for this epic mash-up? *raises hand*

‘Tis The Season To Be Sparkly!
Tinsel isn’t the only thing that’s going to be sparkling this Christmas season. Tarte has just released the most ridiculously festive pigments perfect for creating bold, glam, and brighter-than-a-Christmas-tree eye looks! The Chrome Paint Shadow Pots ($22) promise to help you create statement metallic eye looks, minus the fuss and without need for a brush! With no primer needed, this “lazy gal” product is best applied with your finger directly to your eyelid. Made up of 80% pearl, it’s no wonder this pigment packs a punch! According to several reviews, a little goes a long way when it comes to using the product, which means you’re getting pretty good value for money. The Chrome Paint Shadow Pots come in three colors: Park Ave Princess (copper), Fire Dancer (metallic pink), and Pot of Gold (a rich, true gold). Shop this Holiday must-have on the Ulta website.

What Dreams Are Made Of
Finely milled, ultra-decadent, and shining shimmering splendid - that’s what you can expect from BECCA’s latest baby, the Light Waves Highlighter Palette ($34). With three exquisite shades to choose from, the palette doesn’t just function as a highlighter, but can be used and layered on top of eye shadows, lip glosses, and more! With the same formula as their Light Chaser Highlighters, the smooth and buttery powders are easy to apply. The included shades are Moonstone (light gold shimmer), Prismatic Amethyst (cool-toned lilac), and the newest shade, a limited-edition baby by the name of Pink Sapphire (peachy bronze). You can already shop the limited-edition palette here.

Note it on your planners and set your alarms because the highly anticipated Maybelline x Gigi Hadid Collection will be hitting Philippine shores on November 15!

Keep Calm and Love Unicorns
And we thought we's seen last of the unicorn trend! Too Faced (who basically started the whole “look like a unicorn with this lipstick” movement) is literally coming out with an ENTIRE collection solely devoted to the magical creature. The Life’s a Festival Collection will have 15 products that unicorn lovers will flip for! We are gushing over the Unicorn Tears Iridescent Mystical Bronzer ($30), the Festival Refresh Mist ($24), and the Magic Crystal Transforming Lip Gloss ($19), which is basically the perfect magical topper for any lipstick or lip balm! The magical collection drops in February but knowing Jerrod Blandino, more teasers will be coming our way very soon!
