An Afternoon with the pH Care Girls

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, July 3, 2017, In : Events 
Select media and influencers gathered at Le Petit Soufflé a couple of weeks ago to discover what pH Care has to offer. Turns out they have so many variants for every concern a woman may need. “The care that women need is deliberate, intentional, and intimate, and this goes most especially in the feminine area. We know that the feminine area is very sensitive and it takes a deeper understanding to formulate the right products that women can use everyday. pH Care spent years conducting study...

Available for a limited time only, The Body Shop is offering us free personalization of their best-selling body butters! I had the chance to avail of this service first-hand at their Christmas booth in Mall of Asia last Wednesday and I tell you, it's hard not to get carried away and get a body butter for all my scent-loving girl friends!

Host Apples Aberin introduces UK's #1 skincare brand Simple

Simple believes that face care is not just about how skin looks from the outside. Rather, it is about how it feels—because it is always about how women feel about their own skin that truly matters. With that, the brand offers a range of products that gently hydrates while providing superior mak...

Unleash the Goddess Within

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, October 19, 2016, In : Events 
Sleek Makeup invited friends from the media today for another event and seeing that it's a launch of a highlighting kit, there was no chance I was to say no. In the center of SM Makati's activity area, Sleek Makeup's event glimmered in gold, making all of the guests want to unleash the goddesses in us.


And it was easy for us to do so with the activities they've prepared for us:

We could have as much metallic body tattoos we wanted!



Or we could have our Egyptian makeup and face tattoos done wit...

Control Your Frizz

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, October 6, 2016, In : Events 
Now that my priorities have shifted, it has been harder and harder to make time to visit the salon for some pampering session. I find myself with, at the most, half an hour to prep myself to leave the house. It’s one thing to walk out of a salon with gorgeous, straight hair and another to step out of the house every day with the same salon-gorgeous look. But thanks to amazing beauty products like TRESemmé Keratin Smooth, I can now #ControlYourFrizz with the same salon results, right in you...

Cargo Cosmetics x Beauty Bar

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, October 4, 2016, In : Events 
Though a fan of luxe and fancy packaging on my cosmetics, when it comes to my professional kit, I prefer filling it in with straight-forward no-fuss makeup. When you're short on time and needs to finish too many heads to count, you want to be able to grab hold on efficient products that are streamlined and gets the work done.

Come in Cargo Cosmetics in the picture. This 20-year old Canadian brand has been a staple on the sets of film and television as well as in the makeup kits (mine included)...

Bold Hair with Watsons

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, May 25, 2016, In : Events 
If there's one concern we human beings share, it has to do with our crowning glory -- our hair. Now more than ever, our hair is a statement to who are in this world. However, most of us are still afraid to really let our personalities show because of fear of hair damage and costly maintenance. 

Watsons’ recently launched their “Color Your Hair Bold” initiative at Revel, The Palace, to ease these worries of women by highlighting that hair coloring is not only fun, it is also safe, afford...

Your Mascara's Partner In Prime

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, March 1, 2016, In : Events 
I definitely felt the change the moment I turned 30 two months ago. There's more 'adulting' stuff to do now and the pressure to make something out of your life can't just be shoo-ed away. But apparently, all a busy girl needs is a few good hours to join her girlfriends enjoy an afternoon of cocktails, makeup and a hilarious chick flick to recuperate.

Becoming A Sun Warrior

Posted by Dior Co on Saturday, February 6, 2016, In : Events 
What is life without being out and about? Ever since I was little, I was never afraid of playing outdoors and being under the sun. I love summer and never understood why some people are so scared to be exposed to the sun and wear huge hats and use umbrellas at the beach. It's not only okay to bask under the sun, it's fun! That is, until I turned 30. Suddenly, I felt a certain fear of the sun’s UV rays that may cause my skin unseen permanent damage and premature ageing. But thanks to the rec...

PH Loves Banila Co

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, November 24, 2015, In : Events 
It's been two weeks since I got back from a month-long honeymoon and until this day, my body is still adjusting and suffering from a bad case of jet lag. Getting back to business as usual has been quite a task and untimely sleepiness and hunger pangs have been challenging. With the countless invites I came home to on my desk, I needed to sort and select which ones are worth exchanging hours of rest for. And the first one I've attended didn't disappoint!


Yesterday, I attended the launch of Ba...

K-Palette Thanksgiving Afternoon

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, October 5, 2015, In : Events 
When you're starting a new phase in your life, in my case marriage, things just tend to change. I no longer have the time and energy to attend all the beauty events I'm invited to. It's a good thing actually, I get to realize what brands I truly believe in. 

Cheryl Tan, owner of Beautybox Corp that brought us the many Japanese brands that we now have in Manila, thanked me last week for always supporting their events. And honestly, I felt the other way around. I'm truly grateful that these bran...

Kiehl's Doctor Is In

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, October 5, 2015, In : Events 
Admit it, going to your dermatologist sometimes feels like going to your dentist. Patience is not my strongest suit and having to wait someone do something for me wears me thin. When it comes to my skin, it's just either my dermatologist brother or me who takes care of it. And just whenever I don't have the time to go to his clinic, I self-medicate!

Thanks to brands such as Kiehl's that has partnerships with dermatologists and scientific experts from renowned universities around the globe, we ...

An All-Natural Parisian Glow

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, September 22, 2015, In : Events 
Whenever I go to France, I make it a point to at go to their grocery stores to get as much of their fresh produce. Ingredients there, especially in Provence, are just fresher and 'healthier'. Now imagine that it's now just in your tummy, but on your skin! Thanks to entrepreneur Aliza Jabès who founded the now-renowned Parisian beauty company, NUXE, we now have a brand that harnesses the potent powers of nature to help us achieve soft, supple and youthful skin.

Rediscovering Origins

Posted by Dior Co on Saturday, September 5, 2015, In : Events 
I was very blessed to have been exposed early on in the field of beauty. Even as a toddler, my mom, who I think influenced my love for beauty, used to bring me with her all the time in her shopping sprees. One of the counters at the beauty floor of department stores we always visit was Origins. It had became a habit that when it closed down several years ago, we were devastated. Where were we going to get our Clariflying charcoal clay mask and Peace of Mind?

And today, I am happy to announce...

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, April 14, 2015, In : Events 
Known for their formaldehyde-free formula, Girl Stuff has recently launched their Blogger's Elite Summer Collection last month at Stacy's BGC.

Before the program began, guests of the event had their nails done using the Elite Summer Collection shades embellished with some nail art.


Since I just did my nails the night before the event with a coral lacquer, I just topped it off with some sparkle using Girl Stuff polish in 24K.

One of the inspirations behind the Blogger's Elite Collection, Nikki T...

The New Curl in Town

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, February 25, 2015, In : Events 
A few weeks back, I received a package with a mystery mascara with no name or brand but with a note that it promises to lift, curl and solve lash dilemmas for girls all around the world. I got to try this new curl in town before the big reveal and for a typical Asian girl with short sparse lashes, the difference amazed me.

After posting this photo on Instagram, followers guessed away and most said "Benefit!" 

And right they are, the mystery mascara is no other than the new Roller Lash from th...

Inglot Opens Its Flagship Store

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, December 18, 2014, In : Events 
My, my... how time flies! I can still remember writing a post on my first visit to the much awaited Inglot store in Glorietta 5 last year. And now, they've already opened a new store — their grandest and biggest one to-date!

A couple of days ago, I had the chance to experience and shoot at the newest flagship store of Inglot Cosmetics, the brand that brought the power of freedom to your makeup selection, in Megamall Bldg A.

The event was hosted by the fab, fun & quirky Sam Oh.

Benefit Blings It On

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, November 10, 2014, In : Events 
Seems like body ornaments are the "in" thing to have right now. We've been seeing a lot of jewellery tattoos since last month here in Manila. It's the perfect way for fashion to fuse with beauty.

And with this trend, Benefit Cosmetics opted to join the bandwagon by introducing their newest limited edition Bling Brow, a set of brow crystal accessories made of Swarovski Crystal elements that come in eight shades. This new service adds an irresistible sparkle that’s perfect for ladies who want ...

Nivea Slumber Party

Posted by Dior Co on Saturday, November 1, 2014, In : Events 
Admit it, it happened to you once or twice in this lifetime. As the day ends and when we’re all too tired or too lazy to do our nightly cleansing routine, we easily give in to the pitfalls of not completely removing makeup before hitting the sack.

Knowing that most women keeps this dirty secret of sleeping with makeup on, Nivea decided to finally bring in their cleansing wipes that were only once available in other countries. Last week, I had the pleasure to have been invited by Nivea, tog...

Happy Skin Turns One!

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, October 15, 2014, In : Events 
To see a local cosmetics brand go big in just a span of a year, you'd be proud to be Filipino. A year ago, newcomer Happy Skin dared Filipinas to be happier. It was a bold move, given that there are already so many cosmetics brands out there. But with their skin-caring makeup, Filipinas today find themselves prettier and happier—all with happier skin.

Just two days ago, beauty bloggers and friends from the media gathered to celebrate Happy Skin's 1st birthday. Here are some photos from the ...

Ciaté Loves Manila

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, October 9, 2014, In : Events 
Being in the beauty industry for about eight years now, I realized that it's not just about the face anymore. Makeup and skincare aren't the only things being considered when "beauty" is the topic of the day. Nails, for one, had been given much attention lately due to the trends we saw in the runway. And I, personally, had been into this trend too! With bi-weekly mani and pedi appointments, DIY nail art and whatnot, it's no secret the nail industry is taking a big chunk of the beauty industry...

Guerlain KissKiss Style Icons

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, September 19, 2014, In : Events 
When I first got a call from Guerlain asking if I'd agree to be one of their style icons, I was absolutely caught off guard. One of my favorite fragrance and makeup brands reached out to me and wants me to be a part of their campaign? I was stunned with gratitude and honor and of course, I said yes.



Just to give you a quick background on how the Guerlain's revamped KissKiss lipsticks were created, let me post a few words from Guerlain's creative director.



Guerlain has chosen 12 style icons for ...

Free In My Skin Movement

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, September 19, 2014, In : Events 
Having been a skincare ambassador of Physiogel, I truly know and believe in each of the products in their skincare line. Last week, GSK launches the Free In My Skin Movement to empower every Filipina to fully participate in life with Physiogel® at Makati Shangri-La Hotel. The Free In My Skin Movement empowers every Filipina to be free from dry, sensitive skin and to confidently embrace life and achieve their dreams and aspirations.

Refreshments From Head to Toe

Posted by Dior Co on Saturday, June 21, 2014, In : Events 
Is it just me or does summer seem to be longer this year? It has started raining but I can still feel the heat and humidity! Despite being proud of being religious on my skin regimen, I've been tempted to skip moisturising altogether because of our current climate.

Thank God for beauty innovations such as the Body Shop Sorbet, moisturising doesn't need to be associated to stickiness or ickiness anymore. 

Last week, The Body Shop invited the press for the launch of its newest products specially ...

Burt's Bees Daisy White

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, May 13, 2014, In : Events 
Burt's Bees has come a long way since the days when its founder used beeswax to make lip balm that grew to be one of the most coveted in the industry. I'm thrilled to share that Burt's Bees has launched a whitening line called the Daisy White. I know a lot of people who jumped into the organic bandwagon years ago in terms of the food that they consume and with the makeup they use. Now, Burt's Bees is giving us the chance to experience organic skincare too!

Last week, they held a blogger's eve...

Event: Colour Collection x Sample Room Event

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, March 7, 2014, In : Events 
Last Saturday, I was invited by one of the country's pioneer beauty bloggers and Sample Room's founder Sophie Uy to attend Colour Collection's event in partnership with Sample Room.

It was a workday for me. I had back-to-back makeup jobs that day and I squeezed in this event to my schedule because I really felt guilty for always having to say no to press event invites since the year started. And also, I miss and wanted to see my fellow beauty bloggers who share the same love I have for beauty,...

One of the makeup brands I always hoard in Target in the US has finally arrived in Manila. Welcome Pixi! Bloggers and friends from the media gathered last month for the launch of Pixi Philippines.

The Inglot Freedom System Is Here!

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, December 3, 2013, In : Events 
As a makeup artist, you just need color options. There are a lot of cosmetic brands out there where one can shop for what one needs, but rarely does one find all that she needs in just one store. Apparently, we don't need to store hop anymore, Inglot has finally arrived Manila!

Inglot was established over 25 years ago by a young chemist Wojtek Inglot who visualized to produce high quality products at fair and reasonable prices, using only the best possible ingredients and raw materials from th...

Eye of Horus

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, November 25, 2013, In : Events 
The search for the best eye product that doesn't smear is like looking for the fountain of youth. A new product that promises to be smudge-proof gets launched so very often that it makes us doubt if there's really one that's effective in defining the eyes without running. I've probably wrote too many blog entries on this subject in my blog, and still will be writing reviews on upcoming products that promises the same. 

Glamourbox PH invited makeup artists and beauty bloggers last week to intro...

Push & Pop Party

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, October 31, 2013, In : Events 
When you're nearing your 30's, the word party doesn't really trigger excitement anymore like it used to in your teens. Now, it just meant loud music and claustrophobia that leads to exhaustion and an excuse to leave before midnight -- just when the party is about to start. So it's refreshing to attend a party that starts at dinner time, with a few people to chat with in an intimate setting.

That's exactly what my Wednesday night was at the Benefit Push & Pop Party -- a night of catching up wit...
