Q&A: Waterproof Mascara, Bad or Good?

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, March 31, 2011, In : Tips 
Q: Is it true that waterproof mascaras are bad for the lashes?  

A: The thing about mascaras with waterproof formula, they don't really harm the lashes per se but they're harder to take off at night. So it is more likely that you will be rougher on your lashes when trying to remove the mascara, which risks lash loss. As long as you're gentle with your lashes when removing the product, I don't see any harm. Also, use a reputable oil-based eye makeup remover to dissolve the mascara completely an...

The Perfect Tinted Sunblock

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, March 29, 2011, In : Reviews 
“If there’s one beauty product you can’t live without, what would it be?” This seems to be the worst question any beauty junkie can ever be asked of, but to me it isn’t. My clients always ask what skincare routine they should follow to achieve good skin. Once I start with my speech, they stop me right there and then to say, “but I’m too tamad for all that.” So I tell them, “skip all of that if you must, but never ever ditch your sunblock.”

So for someone who cannot live wi...

Majolica Majorca!

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, March 25, 2011, In : Reviews 
The more affordable subsidiary brand of Shiseido Japan is now in Manila! Majolica Majorca opened last March 13 in SM Makati where it joined most of the coveted make-up brands we have in the country today. It was real excitement when I first heard from a colleague, who now is handling the make-up brand, that Luxasia finally decided to bring in one of the cutest make-up brands I adored since I was a teenager! 

So I went over to SM Makati cosmetics department as usual to window shop; This time ar...

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, March 22, 2011, In : News 
"That first silver strand is a defining moment – and used to signal the start of middle age. For a woman, it’s one of the most defining moments of getting older — that day when you peer into the mirror and spot your very first silver strand of hair,” says Claire Coleman of Daily Mail UK.

A woman expects her first grey hair to appear in her late 30’s or 40’s. But new research reveals a worrying trend. The alarming news for women today is that we are losing our natural hair color ...

Lipo for Fat Removal?

Posted by Dior Co on Sunday, March 20, 2011, In : Tips 
When a close friend told me yesterday she’s planning to go under the knife for liposuction, the only response I was able to utter was, “Seriously?” Even as someone who’s not against cosmetic surgery, lipo seems to be going way too far. I mean, a bit of snip and snap in the nose or eyelids is fine, but having fat vacuumed out from under the skin? Not only does the recovery period stretch as far, I’ve also heard news about people dying while being operated on the table.

So, to be able...

The 1st Unretouched Make-up Ad

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, March 17, 2011, In : Announcements 

"You're looking at the first unretouched makeup ad", reads this ad for Makeup For Ever's HD High Definition foundation. The first of the Make Up For Ever unretouched ads, which appeared in U.S. magazines this week, shows a model holding up a camera to take a photograph of herself.

Given that most foundation ads are airbrushed to perfection, we usually take claims of flawless skin with a pinch of salt. So the beauty brand's decision to publish the world's first unretouched make-up campaign is ...

Christian Dior at Taipei 101

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, March 15, 2011, In : Reviews 
The Christian Dior boutique at Taipei 101 by far has the best make-up studio station I've seen from a cosmetic brand. Or maybe it's just because my name is imprinted on the back of the chairs and on the well-lit mirrors! This is definitely my peg for my future make-up studio.

I need to get myself those chairs! And those "Dior Addict Be Iconic" mirror stickers!

Complete with all the make-up a lady needs!

Drawer-like shelves for ease.

Private make-up studio for VIP clients.
