Willow Smith: New Trend-setter?

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, September 28, 2010, In : Celebrities 

How young is too young to attend Milan fashion shows? Apparently, there's no age restriction as Willow Smith—daughter of Will and Jada—turned up at a few of the bigger Milan shows with her perfectly toned mom. I was intrigued and yes, even impressed by her front-row beauty and fashion choices. The nine-year-old’s most outlandish sartorial decision perhaps came  in the form of a bold-shouldered snow leopard jacket that she wore to Ferregamo's show. But even that piece of exceptional oute...

Though still a taboo to most today, tattoo has gotten its way into mainstream as celebrities and models are getting inked. I had my first one during my stint in LA where almost everyone I met was sporting one. It didn’t take long before I convinced myself to join the club since my classmate works at a tattoo place as a piercer. I wanted a text that would remind me of a certain significant time in my life and since I was taking up Masters program in make-up artistry that time, I decided that...

Weekly Hair Treatment for 100 Bucks

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, September 23, 2010, In : News 
As someone who's education, training and experience have been in the field of marketing, I only but know that sometimes, it's not at all about the quality of the product but the promotion budget that sets the price. More often than not, a four-digit branded cream is as good as a moisturizer quarter of its price. So make sure you visit not only the beauty counters of high-end cosmetics, but those in department stores (even drugstores) as well.

Sharing to you one of the good finds I've discovere...

Are You Photo-ready?

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, September 23, 2010, In : Reviews 
As promised in my last blog post on HD make-up, I'll be recommending an HD make-up worth investing in. The only HD make-up I ever trusted was Makeup For Ever for its Invisible Cover Foundation and Microfinishing Powder. However lately, I've been hearing a lot of good word about Revlon's PhotoReady Make-up, particularly its liquid foundation. The said product promises to give a poreless, airbrushed skin with its photochromatic pigments that bend and reflect light to erase every flaw. While at ...

Your Face in HD

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, September 23, 2010, In : News 
With the dawn of HD (high definition) technology, it seems that everything else needs to work twice as hard. Newer, high-definition TV sets can project larger images with 5 times the resolution of analog versions. So everything from wardrobe malfunctions to the care instructions on a host’s outfit will air in much more vivid detail. With this in mind, almost all cosmetic companies followed suit and added HD make-up in their product lines. 

What is HD make-up?

HD make-up erases any crease, w...

Cool Off Your Skin

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, September 21, 2010, In : News 
Sipping only hot or warm drinks might do more harm than you'd expect. I happen to know a couple of friends and relatives who avoid drinking cold drinks to avoid slowing down their metabolism. I even know someone who proclaims that she lost five pounds just by drinking hot drinks for a month! New studies suggest that one of the best ways to take care of your skin is to keep your body cool. Even though you might not be out in the sun as much, anything that raises your body temperature—be it s...

Baby Boom

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, September 21, 2010, In : Reviews 
This year has been such a blessing for my growing family as we were gifted two more additions. Topping off the joy that my first niece Erin has given us, Inigo Gabriel and Ava Simone joined the Co family this 2010. I never looked into babycare products until I realized I needed to shop for them. What better gift a beauty blogger aunt can give, but beauty products right?

In the long search for the best baby care brand, the winner was just under my nose the entire time. I used to work for Tupper...

Deconstructed Curls

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, September 20, 2010, In : Celebrities 

freida-pinto-curls_main.jpgFreida Pinto brought glamour to a whole new level with these glossy curls at the premiere of You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger at the Toronto Film Festival. I'm coveting her look, created by stylist Jonathan Hanousek, and now he's sharing his step-by-step instructions for how we can re-create the style on our own.

    • Begin by wrapping thin sections of hair (about one and a half inches wide) around a curling iron with a one inch barrel.
    • Before curling, spray each section with a firm hold hairspray...

Who Goes With You In The Shower?

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, September 7, 2010, In : Reviews 
I've never been one who's a loyal on a certain brand when it comes to beauty products. As a beauty blogger, it is my job to try out new (and even strange) products on the shelves, may it be a drugstore find or one exclusively sold at Nordstrom. However, for three months now, I can't seem to shift away from my bathroom body goodies, dare I say staples (a non-existent word in my vocabulary).  When Olay introduced its Age Defying bar claiming that we all can look and feel young in just 7 showers...

Cyndi & Gaga Glosses Up

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, September 6, 2010,

If you thought you were psyched about Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper’s Viva Glam Lipsticks for MAC Cosmetics, get a load of their new Lipglass offerings! Like their bullet-encased predecessors, the shine enhancers come in
opaque pink (Gaga) and opaque coral (Cyndi), and a portion of proceeds from their sale benefits the MAC AIDS fund. Also available for your credit card-swiping pleasure are some adorable lip-shaped wristlets with enough space for both a gloss and a lipstick should you want to d...

Anne's Hair Hath Gone Away?

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, September 3, 2010, In : Celebrities 
Raven beauty Anne Hathaway has debuted her new short pixie cut while filming her new movie in France. Fans of the Devil Wears Prada star were shocked that she pulled an Emma Watson, for the same reason that the look is required for a movie. But damn, we've been had: The new pixie cut Anne Hathaway’s been sporting around town is not in fact a crop at all; it’s a wig—and a damn good one, too! Her representative has confirmed that the new shorn look is nothing other than movie magic and is...

Charcoal on Your Face

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, September 2, 2010, In : Reviews 
I'm not one who's picky on cleansers as I feel they all just do one thing: to cleanse. I feel that cleansers have no other benefits but to cleanse and the ingredients aren't so important as you wash them away anyways as compared to lotions or serums that is left on your skin. But upon seeing Pond's Pure White Deep Cleansing Facial Foam with Activated Charcoal, I knew I needed to get myself one. Activated carbon, also called activated charcoal, is a form of carbon that has been processed to ma...
