Kanebo Cosmetics Launch

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, October 31, 2016, In : Announcements 
Kanebo. Everyone seems to know this brand but little do we know that it's actually a global cosmetics umbrella that brought us favorite brands such as Lunasol, Impress and Kate. They have recently launched Kanebo as a brand itself just this year January in Japan and just last week in Manila at Shangri La Fort.





Kanebo wants to offer us women a new kind of prestige  natural, realistic but brilliant. Relatable but of refined quality. And this character definitely shows in the makeup and skinca...

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)...

Poise Makeup

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, June 3, 2016, In : Reviews 
One reason why I've always been drawn into makeup is because it's the easiest way to change one's look. It's not permanent and that makes it fun to experiment and play with. Want to look sweet? Go for soft shades of pink. Want to look fierce? There's always contouring techniques. Want to look poised? Go for classics and neutrals. The latter is actually a personal favorite. No one can go wrong with that one.

So with all the brands launching pop and trendy colors, it's a breathe of fresh air t...

Céleteque DermoCosmetics

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, November 24, 2015, In : Reviews 
As I age, I'm inclined to obsess more about skincare now than makeup. But a fusion of both at a reasonable price? Why not! Céleteque Dermo, the trusted brand for cutting-edge skincare technology, recently launched their first ever line of cosmetics for every sensible and hardworking Filipina.

After the brand has established itself as a skincare staple—in countless women’s beauty regimen, with its extensive, customized and expert line of dermatologist-tested, hypoallergenic, and clinical...

Happy Skin Read My Lips Series

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, October 5, 2015, In : Announcements 
As Happy Skin turns two this month, they were happy to share that day in and day out, they sell over one hundred lippies, without fail. And because of this, one of my favorite homegrown brands of skin-caring makeup devotes its holiday 2015 collection to a true best-seller that’s been making women everywhere happiest: the cult-favorite Shut Up & Kiss Me Lippie.

From the introduction of its very first lippie—the Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippie, launched back in October 2013—Happy Sk...

POPs of Colour

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, February 16, 2015, In : Reviews 
Though a fan of natural makeup, I still have those days when I'm in the mood for a bit of unexpected pops of colour. My daily makeup kit has tons of neutral colours, but I do have a stash of neons and brights for editorials and high fashion shoots that require them. So when I received an invite from Glamourbox for the launching of yet another interesting makeup brand, Pop Cosmetics, I knew these would go directly to what I call my "fun makeup kit".


These customized sweet treats in the form of...

K-Palette 1 Day Magic Series

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, August 26, 2014, In : Reviews 
K-Palette has recently come out with something new -- the K-Palette 1 Day Magic series. I'm very grateful that even though I wasn't able to attend their press launch, I was sent a kit to try myself.


Basically, the 1 Day Magic Series is an all improved collection of K-Palette that consists of a liquid eyeliner, dual mascara, eyelid glue and Quad blush.


Here's what you need to know about each magical product from the series:

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,...

Hello ladies! First and foremost, happy new year! Sorry for the late greeting and for the lack of blog entries as my December and January had been fully-booked with weddings and other makeup jobs. But I'm back and I'm introducing a new segment "My Top 5 Picks." Every month, I will be posting my favorite five items on a certain category. Today, it's going to be all about the best long-lasting makeup in the market today. All tried and tested by me.

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...

Relaunch of Ellana Minerals

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, November 25, 2013, In : Reviews 
Do you remember the advent of mineral makeup about 8 years ago? When almost everyone shifted to using mineral formulation? I was one of those girls who dove into the fad and one of the first mineral makeup I've tried was Ellana Minerals. However, I stopped seeing it in stores and was forced to find my needs in Philosophy cosmetics. I've always wondered what happened to Ellana, until I got an invite to their relaunch last week. And I couldn't be more excited that the local Proudly Pinoy brand ...

Ready for S/S 2013 with BYS

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, February 7, 2013, In : Reviews 
Just this week, BYS cosmetics invited the press for their Spring/Summer Forecast for 2013. For those of you not familiar with the brand, BYS was developed in Melbourne, Australia and was recently launched in Manila last October 2012. It aims to provide consumers with practical and trendy cosmetics without exorbitant price tags.

Of course, I arrived wearing some BYS cosmetics on my face for the same reason that you wouldn't dare not wear Armani on an Armani Prive fashion show, or at least one o...

Post-Summer Collection from Bobbi Brown

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, September 28, 2012, In : Collection 
Don't you just hate it when summer ends? Or when it's about to? The fact that rainy season starts too soon makes me kind of despondent. There's such few opportunities to wear those sun dresses and bright colors! And that goes with make-up too. I seem to be picking up more of my greys, blacks and dark shades as early as July. 

This year though, Bobbi Brown introduces a collection especially made for that confusing season between summer and autumn. Bobbi’s new Desert Twilight Collection combin...

It's Still Red and Pink for Fall 2012

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, September 11, 2012, In : Collection 
Despite my intention to shy away from deep and bold colors, I always seem to end up wearing them on my face. I've experimented and tried pinks, nudes and pastels and I just end up going back to my trusty red lippies. I've recently admitted to myself that I look my best in red and fuchsia (my fresh take on red). You see as years pass by, you'll get over the experimenting phase and finally stick to a signature. And I cannot think of a more fitting shade than red for me, as friends and family wo...

The Lash King’s Royal Chamber

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, February 15, 2012, In : Reviews 
When Majolica Majorca came to our shores last year, I wasn't as excited. With so many cosmetic brands around, it seems like nothing can ever surprise a make-up artist anymore. But as I've gradually gotten to know the brand, its story chapters and the products they carry, I became a believer. I usually don't mind what's inside my personal make-up kit that I carry around in my purse, but with MJ's chic regal packaging, I can't help but fill in my bag with those golden intricate cases! Very clas...

Blush To Flatter

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, July 18, 2011, In : Tips 
Q: I'm not comfortable wearing too much make-up on and I only like to put on blush and nothing else. Do you think blush is enough to enhance my face? Can you please give me tips on how to enhance my features with just blush?

A: Expertly applied blush can shape and define your face, creating the illusion of cheekbones that don't exist—and it's easier to do than you think.

To thin a round face: Start your blush at the apples, then brush it along the cheekbones all the way up to the temple...

Nars Holiday Collection 2010

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, October 15, 2010, In : Collection 
For the holidays, it’s nice to see something almost traditional — with lots of golds, silvers, berries and plums — from such an untraditional brand. Nars cosmetics just came out with their Holiday Collection 2010 today. The colors are just the right hues I'm looking for to use this coming December, many of them shimmery and saturated but not heavy or foreboding. Francois usually likes to throw in a few quirky shades, but this time he shows some restraint to tell a tightly woven color st...

No More Trial & Error

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, October 5, 2010, In : Tips 
When I was still in gradeschool dealing with Mathematics, trial and error has always been part of the learning process to solve a certain equation. When I stepped into college, certain philosophical studies say that experience is the best way for us human beings to learn. And even after finishing school, I've had a few mishaps that could've turned to regret if I didn't convince myself that I should just "charge it to experience". 

Lucky for us ladies, when it comes to beauty choices, there a...

L’Occitane Make-up

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, April 20, 2010,

























 A ton of buzz has preceded its arrival, and now the official launch of L’Occitane’s first ever makeup range is finally upon us: The brand’s new Peony cosmetics line, which was designed with the help of renowned French horticulturist Jean-Luc Rivière—who has bred and cultivated over 160 varieties of multi-petaled blooms—just launched this month.

Twilight Make-up Collection

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, December 7, 2009, In : Collection 

Back in the day, Interview with the Vampire was one of my fave movies while Buffy the Vampire Slayer became an obsession of most. But I must admit that I came to theTwilight saga a little later than most.  And while I can’t claim that I read the books, there is no denying that most (especially girls) found a certain addictive quality to them. Last week, I myself devoured New Moon, the second of the Twilight Saga series, the movie.

There's no surprise that most companies are making the most o...

Leighton Meester Gets Cheeky

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, November 9, 2009, In : Celebrities 
Leighton Meester is doing for blush what Blair Waldorf did for the headband; the perfectly pink cheek is becoming her signature. At last night’s Swarovski-hosted book launch for Gossip Girlcostume designer Eric Daman’sYou Know You Want It: Style-Inspiration-Confidence, the show’s star placed the happy hue on her apples and dragged it outward toward her cheekbones for contouring. I, too have been feeling a little rouge of late, and have been leaning toward liquid and cream formulations, ...

Dior Cases the Compact

Dior Holiday Collection Makeup PaletteWhether or not you’re ready to accept it, the holidays are quickly approaching. It’s unclear what actually demarcates the beginning of the season—whether it’s the first appearance of Christmas lights or the nascent pangs of stress that come with making your Thanksgiving travel plans—but in our world, the arrival of repackaged makeup sets means it has begun. Dior has proven particularly adept at luring consumers this time of year by miniaturizing its coveted Cannage tote and re-creat...

Posie Tint

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, July 27, 2009, In : Reviews 

I think I've mentioned Benefit cosmetics approximately 1000 times on my multiply blog because I absolutely adore BeneTint to the point where it has established permanent residency in my makeup bag and I've repurchased it no less than 4 times despite its tendency to stain everything I own including my passport. After finishing my last broken bottle, I decided to try out its new twist on their cult-fave, the Posie Tint -- a lighter version of Benefit's cult-favorite BeneTint. This just-kissed t...
