Happy weekend, everyone! If you’re like us and still recovering from those insanely campy and absolutely glorious MET Gala looks, this week’s beauty roundup will help bring you that zen, back-to-reality beauty dose that you need. We’ve got the latest on a new skincare player to rival TO’s fuss-free formulations and Happy Skin’s latest high-tech creation! We’re also spilling the deets on Gucci’s return to the beauty world and something called a puppy dog highlighter?!Read More
Can you feel the heat?! March may have just begun but summer’s definitely here! With the rising temperatures and scorching sun, we can’t help but feel the need to head to a beach and take a break. But in case you can’t just hop in a car and go for a quick getaway, this week’s beauty roundup may just be the iced tea you need. We’re spotted Patrick Ta’s makeup line, a new Sunnies Face in Cebu, and a makeup collection inspired by the biggest show on TV. Happy reading!Read More

This V-week we’ve got the lowdown on Urban Decay’s newest NAKED palette (it’s beautiful), Too Faced’s skincare line, Beauty Bar’s big sale (who’s ready to shop?!), and a couple of new celebrity beauty lines in the works.Read More
Supermodel Claudia Schiffer has had a lot of time to ruminate on her makeup collection – she was the 90’s It Girl and has had a very active three-decade old career. That’s countless years spent having makeup done on herself, so who better to create a line than the woman who has served as the muse of countless photographers and fashion designers?Read More

Let’s hang out and chill!Read More
I've tried so many eyebrow formulas at this point, but I always keep coming back to pencils. They're the fastest to work with and delivers near flawless results most of the time. Staying power, while variable, remains generally good across different brands. Truly, it's hard to go wrong with a feathery pencil in a shade that matches you!Read More
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!

Smashbox Cosmetics is one of those well-loved makeup brands that have been consistently producing hit after hit since they first launched in 1996. Born out of the famous Smashbox Studios in LA, Smashbox is known for their long-lasting makeup, their cult-fave Photo Finish Primers, and their amazing collaborations.
Speaking of collaborations, Smashbox just dropped three makeup products with great partnerships that we’re sure to love here in the Philippines! Their Cover Shot Eye Palettes (P1,500 each) are brought to life in campaigns by Pretty Little Liars star, Shay Mitchell. Each palette contains two base shades (top part of palette) and six blendable accent colors to play up your look and mood.Read More
We regularly feature a lot of Japanese, Korean, and of course, local beauty products here on PV. Personally, those are the ones that excite me the most! Asian Beauty (or AB) has been growing in popularity because, well, there are so many affordable yet effective product options. I also feel they are better suited to the needs of Asian skin, with formulations that are often lightweight and designed to be layered on top of each other.
I’ve tried and enjoyed picks from Japanese, Korean, and Pinoy brands but I couldn’t help but get curious when I learned that Taiwanese beauty was going to be the next big thing.Read More
