Some of the participating brands were crowd favorites such as BYS, Sleek Makeup, L’Oreal, Maybelline, Revlon, MaxFactor, OFRA Cosmetics, Happy Skin, Catrice, Nichido and many more.

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...

Review: The Body Shop Voyage Collection

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, October 5, 2015, In : Reviews 
Just in time for my honeymoon next week, I'm bringing with me one of The Body Shop's scents from their new Voyage Collection. Infused with authentic ingredients from the four corners of the globe, the new Voyage collection is inspired by four destinations -- Japan (Cherry Blossoms), India (Jasmine), Morocco (Mountain Roses) and Italy (Figs).


Since our first stop is Italy, it's only but appropriate to bring Italian Figs fragrance with me. Figs are emblematic of the Italian coast. This bitte...

Review: Benefit Air Patrol

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, October 5, 2015, In : Reviews 
I'm often asked why I still stop by a beauty store despite thousands of makeup I have at home. Well, the beauty industry just keeps coming out with newer innovative products! Take Benefit Cosmetics' new Air Patrol BB cream eyelid primer for instance. I mean, who wouldn't buy an eyelid primer in BB cream texture with broad-spectrum SPF 20 that also contains EnviroDefend complex to help guard our delicate eyelids against sun, smoke and pollutants?


It also promises to extend the wear of eyesha...

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...

Bathe in LUXury

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, October 5, 2015, In : Reviews 
There is nothing more rewarding than having the luxury of time to take long baths after a long day. And while at it, why not bathe in a luxurious scent? I believe that the scent of a woman all starts in the shower.

We now can have the luxurious experience of bathing with perfume every day, as LUX finally sets the Philippines abloom. Masterfully designed and crafted by perfume experts from New York, Paris, and London, the new LUX Perfumed Bath Collection consists of lingering fragrances that ...

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.

The Inglot PH te...

Japan's Kracie Arrives Manila

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, December 16, 2014, In : Announcements 
I don't know about you beauty addicts, but the first aisle I head to when at a grocery store is the toiletries aisle. We've gotten a lot of good brands over the years but somehow, they never seemed enough still. So when I heard that Kracie, a toiletry and cosmetic brand that came from Japan, is finally available in Manila, I was psyched! Established in 1887, Kracie provides high quality but reasonably priced home-use products for daily living such as body washes, shampoos, hair conditioners, ...

Review: Ultimate Brow Define

Posted by Dior Co on Saturday, December 13, 2014, In : Reviews 
I've recently written a blog post on Eye of Horus Metallic Icons and included in the article a sneak peek about their upcoming brow product. Well, it has made its way to us just in time for Christmas!



The slimline pointed tip is perfect for eyebrow definition while the mechanical twist up lead never needs sharpening. The Castor Oil in the formula also enhances brow condition and growth in the long run.

Available in three shades: Husk (Blonde), Dynasty (Medium Brown) and Nile (Medium/Dark)

My 1st Subscription Glamourbox!

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, February 18, 2014, In : Reviews 
I admit, for someone who works in the beauty industry, it's a shame I've never held any subscription beauty box in my life -- until last month when Glamourbox sent me their Special Edition Snoe Products box. 

I only know one thing about subscription boxes, they promise to send you beauty products that are at least thrice the subscription fee you pay every month. To my excitement, of course I opened the box at once and immediately I was in what I call my "beauty heaven." No wonder almost every ...

Makeup to Wakeup

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, February 18, 2014, In : Events 
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. Swedish makeup artist Petra Strand founded Pixi in UK with a mission to give us women a chance to look flawless in ten minutes or less. Who has the time for a 30-minute makeover when you're too busy living your fabulous life?!

Here are some photos from the launch at Simply Thai, Greenbelt 5:

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, January 31, 2014, In : Reviews 
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.

Mascaras, mascaras, mascaras!

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, September 9, 2013, In : Reviews 
Volumizing, lengthening, curling, and even vibrating! You name it. We girls just need our mascaras. I've probably tried more than fifty kinds in this lifetime in search for the perfect tube that will give me the lushest lashes. Don't judge me just yet. Take into account that one tube can only be used for three short months and needs to be replaced or else you'd be risking yourself with an eye infection. So if you compute, I bought just the right amount! 

It will take me forever if I'd write a ...

Benefit Conquers South!

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, August 5, 2013, In : Announcements 
Finally, Benefit hits south and conquers SM Mall of Asia! Woohoo for us who don't need to travel up north just to grab our Benefit goodies! 

Three days before the opening, we bloggers had a sneak peak inside the still 'under construction' boutique and had a "Hard Hat" party. 



Benefit PH made this boutique's waxing room extra spacious and special.

And of course, what's a party without never-before-seen new products?

Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer
