Shining, Glimmering, Splendid!

Hold the phone, ladies: things are about to get sparkly! Known for her incredible mattes and smooth powders, Kat Von D Beauty has teased yet another palette that we’re dying to get our hands on: The Shade + Light Glimmer Palette! With the same palette layout and shade range as its original matte counterpart, this shimmer palette is basically all your favorite neutral shades on shimmer steroids. With four finishes to choose from, some of the shadows actually look like they might have a foil finish. No word on the price yet but The Shade + Light Glimmer Palette is set to drop in July. You can watch the palette in action here.

Beauty Seoul Mates

If you couldn’t already tell by the title, Korean products are constantly making waves in the beauty world. Western brands are copying cushion technology, gel-like blush formula and sheet masks, and its increasing the clamor for K-beauty to be more accessible. So it’s not exactly a surprise that a makeup giant like MAC Cosmetics has teamed up with South Korean fashion design team Steve J and Yoni P for the cutest, quirkiest, and most “Korean-esque” collection for their summer release! 

The Steve J & Yoni P x MAC collection will have everything from eyeshadows to blushes, brushes, palettes, and of course, lipstick. The brightly colored summer collection has something for everyone, and we’ve already got our eyes on the Steve J & Yoni P x MAC Studio Eye Gloss in Pearl Varnish ($22), the Stevie J & Yoni P x MAC Powder Blush in Peony Petal ($23), and the Stevie J & Yoni P x MAC Eye Shadow X2/Touch Me Baby in Soba and Keep on Twinkling ($22), I also find the Stevie J & Yoni P x MAC Lipstick in Yoni Crush ($17) to be the perfect bright red lipstick for me! The collection is set to drop on the MAC website and MAC stores from June 1 to July 13. Kamsahamnida, MAC!

Peach-ure Perfect Additions

Like it or not, the Peach Collection just keeps on growing! Too Faced co-founder and brand creative genius Jerrod Blandino is expanding his sweet-smelling Peachy Baby with some additions that have our hearts pumping hard. Teased on his Instagram, Peach Perfect is a mattifying loose setting powder that aims to give your face a blurred soft focus effect. It's also infused with sweet fig and peach cream. There’s also the Just Peachy Matte Eyeshadow Palette, which has 12 gorgeous neutral shades and one amazing peachy-coral shadow. It's every matte girl’s dream, and we can already smell the peachy scent of success! The new additions are set to drop some time in August so be sure to check back on Jerrod’s Instagram for more swatches and teasers.

Locked and Loaded

It’s always a win when you get to try out new products at a discounted price and that’s exactly what Maybelline Philippines is doing for us. From May 25 to 31, you can enjoy 25% off their Loaded Bolds Mattes Lipsticks at all Watsons branches! We’re eyeing Grey Over It (a cool-toned brown), Dynamite Red (a blue-toned red), and Berry Bossy (a berry-toned purple) but if you wanna try the crazier colors like Wickedly White, Audacious Blue, and Pitch Black, those are available only at selected Maybelline counters.

All In The Family

Don’t you just love it when a beauty brand branches out to create yet another wonderful line of products? Well, Estée Lauder has been killing it with the successful Estée Edit line and they're now bringing in another brand to fall in love with. Aerin, which is named for Estée's granddaughter and the company's current creative director, is finally launching in the Philippines this July! Known for beautifully crafted scents like Mediterranean Honeysuckle and Ikat Jasmine, we'll soon be able to shop and enjoy their famous body crèmes and perfumes! Can July get here quicker, please?
