Viva La Valentine’s!

With February 14 just around the corner, flower shops and chocolatiers will definitely be hot business. But just in case you don’t want to go down that conventional road (or you don’t want your partner to at least) how about some romantic makeup treats? Sephora Philippines has just curated possibly the most “romantic” lineup any beauty lover could ask for. From brands like BECCA, FENTY Beauty, ZOEVA, Too Faced, Caudalie, and SK-II, tons of your favorite beauty brands will be pooled together for a truly lovely treat. Not gonna lie: we would totally prefer getting the Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick (P2,850), the Kat Von D Metal Crush Highlighting Palette (P2,100), or the Herbivore Botanicals Pink Clay Gentle Cleanse Clay Soap (P610) over a bunch of flowers any day! Shop the Valentine’s Special Roundup here.

Smell like an actual Kimoji

It’s like no matter how many times we refresh our server, we will never truly be able to keep up with the Kardashians! So last week’s roundup involved the possibility of Khloe K starting her own beauty line and now big sister Kim Kardashian-West is out with another product that is sure to get the Internet (and our bank accounts) buzzing. Following the successful release of her Gardenia fragrances last November, Kim is back and just in time for Valentine’s Day! KKW Beauty is set to launch a trio of Kimoji inspired perfumes on February 1, adorably packaged in candy bottles! Choose from the scents Bae (fresh and floral, infused with mandarin and kiwi), BFF (wild berries and pink roses), and Ride or Die (caramel and black berry and plum). The super cute bottles are set to retail for $30 for a 30mL bottle. Shop the Kimoji Hearts Perfumes here. Would you buy Kim K’s new perfume?

Classic and Charmingly Chanel

A girl can dream, right? With a name that associates itself with class and luxury, Chanel has managed to continue to break boundaries and get the beauty community excited for their launches. From their limited edition stamped powders to their crowd favorite cushion compact, the timeless cosmetic brand continues to leave us wanting more - which is why their latest launch is nothing short of a dream. The Chanel Chance Eau Tendre ($70) may look like a super cute baby pink foundation cushion, but it is so much more than that. The brand’s youthful and popular fragrance Chance is now available in cushion form! The compact houses the grapefruit and jasmine perfume, and is perfect for travel and chucking into one’s bag. With an applicator in tow, you can now reapply the fragrance on your body without the hassle of bringing a heavy bottle around! Shop the perfume here.

Got me so crazy in gloss

To the left, to the left! Talk about being the biggest tease! Known for creating noise on the Internet, Glossier is at it again with another mysterious picture that has us wanting more! A few days following the successful release of their exfoliating solution, the minimalist brand is at it again. A picture of Beyonce was posted on the brand’s Instagram with a mysterious caption and a tag right over Bey's left eye. Could this be a new eyeshadow? Eyeliner? Mascara?! We're dying to find out already!
