Beauty News: Summer steals, a golden collection, and new FENTY minis!
Who’s ready for another HOT roundup? We’re turning up the heat on some of the beauty world’s most exciting deals and steals! From Pink Sugar’s FIRST EVER Summer Sale to Happy Skin’s summer-proof makeup, you'll have plenty of options for updating your makeup collection without hurting your wallet. There's a multi-billion (!) dollar deal with a K-beauty brand that has us hoping, and Kat Von D's reveal of a decadent anniversary collection is making all of us swoon. It’s time to get hot and heavy for beauty!
There’s always a first for everything, and this is one first that we can totally get behind! To celebrate the season of summer, Pink Sugar Cosmetics is having their first ever Summer Sale from April 13 to 16! The brand-wide sale will include tons of your favorite Pink Sugar products at a discounted price (who’s ready to stock up on backups?!) Grab your new summer lippie shade for just P149, keep your brows on fleek with the Honey I’m Good Brow Kit for P359, and give yourself that pretty flush with the Sweet Cheeks HD Cheek Colors for P199! Head to your nearest Pink Sugar counter at Watsons, SM Department Stores, and Landmark Department stores for up to 70% off products ASAP!
It’s a Summer-Proof Party!
There’s nothing worse than hitting up the beach or an outdoor party and having your makeup basically melt off of your face. From the fading to the streaking (of the makeup, that is) the intense heat can lead to a forgettable makeup faux pas. Thankfully, Happy Skin Cosmetics has figured out how to help keep us fresh and fabulous this summer with their new Summer-Proof Collection! The collection includes six new products that promise to be long-wearing, comfortable on the skin, and easy to bring around. The collection includes the Shut Up & Kiss Me Matte Lipsticks in Lost in Paradise (nude) and Forever Summer (pink) at P649 each, the Beat The Heat Summer-Proof Brow Mascara in Caramel Brown and Deep Brown at P499 each, and the Pinch Me Summer-Proof Natural Lip & Cheek Stick in Berry Fresh (deep red) and Cherry Glow (bright red) for just P449 each! Shop the Summer-Proof collection in all Happy Skin stores and online here.
The stakes are high (and absolutely fabulous)
There’s no denying that K-Beauty is a force to reckon with in the beauty world. From recreating the signature ombre lip to the glass skin glow, more and more brands are taking their cue from hallyu style and adapting their products and collections. Which is why it’s no surprise that L’Oreal has decided to grab themselves a piece of K-Beauty (literally) and are reportedly buying 70% of Style Nanda! The brand (which started back in 2005 as a fashion label) is responsible for the crowd fave 3 Concept Eyes (3CE). L’Oreal is apparently going to shell out a whopping $37 billion dollars for this deal, and we're hoping that this means we'll have better access to their coveted eyeshadows and lipsticks!
