Happy New Year PV Girls! We hope that you all had an amazing Christmas, and starting 2018 with nothing but love, happiness, and loads of beauty! This week’s roundup is nothing short of festive, with peeks at the exciting new developments that await us in the coming year. Riri's latest pout is on the spotlight and we're dropping the bomb on best gray hair rescuer ever (spoiler alert: it only takes 30 minutes!) And because we deserve to start the new year with a bang, it's time to treat yo'self to a bunch of shiny new additions to your stash, thanks to major deals from Sephora, Beauty Bar, and Colourpop! Don't wait 'til midnight, girls, because this beauty ball has already dropped!
No gray areas
We know just how busy things can get for us nowadays. From work meetings to events, family functions and holiday gatherings, it’s completely normal to be so busy that things tend to get ignored or set aside, like our hair. Gray hair isn’t just something older people deal with - you can just be 20 and already struggling with covering up those pesky strands that stick out like sore thumbs. Thankfully, Liese Blaune has got us covered, literally! With five colors to choose from (Golden Brown, Bronze Brown, Rose Brown, Brown and Black Brown) coloring your hair and eliminating those gray strands are so much easier thanks to Kao’s Bubble Technology. Just 30 minutes in the shower can get your hair freshly colored without the hassle and faf of a salon! Visit the Liese Blaune Facebook page for more details!
As a holiday treat, Maybelline Philippines is bringing back their Crazy Sale with products up to 50% off! From bases to brows, lips and cheeks, a ton of your favorite Maybelline products (as well as the ones on your must-try lists) will be on sale. The promo lasts only until December 31, 2017 so better head on over to your nearest Maybelline counter! Don't know what to grab first? We’re filling our baskets with the Brow Precise Fiber Filler (P299), the Lash Sensational Mascara (P249), and the Instant Age Rewind Concealer (P349)! See the full list of sale products here.
Going lunar loco!
Not going to lie: we’re still gushing and dreaming about the MAC Patrick Starrr Collection (that’s hopefully hitting the PH soon) and now we’ve got another collection to drool over. The Internet was treated to a little teaser thanks to Instagram user @miukmiuk (who works for MAC Korea) and the cosmetic giant is apparently launching a Lunar Collection this 2018! Set to hit shelves by January 18, the adorably pink and white ombre packaged goodies are just what we need to start the new year right. So far we know there will be four lipsticks (all in red tones), a nine-pan eyeshadow palette (in pink and brown hues), and a blush/highlighter duo. MAC has yet to confirm what other products are in the line and the price range but honestly with this super cute teaser, we can’t wait for January!

All that glitters is #GOALS
There might be a worldwide petition to completely eliminate glitter from this world, but Cover FX isn’t stopping one of their most extra launches from happening. Known for their amazing Custom Enhancer Drops, the brand has now branched out into something that we never knew we needed: Glitter Drops ($44)! Not to be mistaken for the chunky arts and crafts glitter that you use on Halloween (or on school projects), these drops give a velvety soft and smooth finish, making it easy to wear and beautiful on the skin. Each shade is multi dimensional, making it glowy and shimmery under any (or no) light. Choose from the three galactic shades Lunar (blue), Mirage (champagne), and Aurora (pink) for your perfect match. These out of this world babies are available on the Cover FX site.

Perfectly my shade
And we thought her naming the new lippies Mattemoiselle was witty! Rihanna and Fenty Beauty have released their new matte lipsticks and we are loving the shade names! With 14 shades to choose from, every color is not only bold and beautiful, but also super unique. There’s Candy Venom (hot pink), Freckle Fiesta (orange brown), Midnight Wasabi (green), One of the Boyz (lavender), Clapback (midnight blue), Spanked (coral pink), Griselda (brownish red), Ma’damn (red), S1ngle (baby pink), Saw C (orange), Shawty (light brown), No Good (coral nude), and Ya Dig (light blue)! The lippie names are not only super cute, but the colors are definite must-haves. One shade in particular has since gone viral: the deep, dark brown shade aptly called PMS because Rihanna is the girl bawz we all need! The Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipsticks retail for P1,100 each on Sephora PH.

Attention MAC lovers: one of the brand’s iconic eye shadow shades is coming back! MAC Cosmetics is bringing back a cult classic shade that has got a ton of people dancing with excitement. Popular dark camel brown shade Uninterrupted (which was discontinued a few years ago) is coming back in 2018! Instagram user @makeupworldnews was first to break the news and although MAC has confirmed the re-release, there is no word yet on when it’ll hit the shelves. So if you’re a fan of the discontinued shade, don’t you worry because knowing MAC, it’ll be back in the most fab way (and we’ll keep you all posted!)

Looney for the Lunar
I could definitely binge watch YouTube makeup videos for hours. There’s just something about watching those gurus slap on makeup and create unique and amazing looks with every day makeup products. Known for his fierce and fab looks on the content platform, MannyMUA is now branching out to more than just his online videos - the guru is coming out with his own cosmetics brand! Although a brand ambassador for Maybelline, he explained that this was a long time dream of his and finally he is able to branch out and be his full, true self with this new line. Lunar Beauty is set to launch some time in 2018, and hopefully Manny will continue to tease products that will soon be available on his social media. Cheers to a fabulous, cut-creased year, Manny!
