Available for a limited time only, The Body Shop is offering us free personalization of their best-selling body butters!

A Great Hair Day with Himawari

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, June 16, 2016, In : Reviews 
It's been more than half a year now since I chopped off my long locks. And contrary to popular belief, short hair is so much harder to maintain. You got to visit the salon for a snip every six to eight weeks to keep the right shape of your short 'do. With long hair before, I can just pony up or put it in a bun if I'm lazy to style it up. But with short hair, I gotta blowdry, use the iron, and apply God knows how many products to style it right. Yes, it's been an awful whole lot of deal to be ...

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...

Summer Trunkshow by Row 101

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, April 7, 2016, In : Announcements 
Lately, I've found myself in no mood to go to malls. I mean, yes, shopping is one of the most delightful things women can ever do; but it seems to be a boring task nowadays because everything's too "commercial". It's rare to find something one-of-a-kind anymore. I've heard a lot of horror stories from my friends where they attended a party or an event only to have two more women wear the same dress, shoes, and even jewellery! 

Last week, I was able to attend the exclusive Row 101 media preview...

La Petite Robe Noire Lipsticks

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, April 1, 2016, In : Reviews 
A few weeks ago, I received an invite from Guerlain to celebrate the expansion of its iconic La Petite Robe Noire fragrance collection into a world of colour. After last year's successful launch of their KissKiss lipsticks, I was pretty curious what their new lipstick would be.



La Petite Robe Noire Shiny Lip Colour comes in 20 shades and the Shiny Nail Colour in 8. The packaging of both the lipsticks and the nail lacquers, inspired by the bottle of the perfume, is to die for. I'm sure a suck...

Colorful Glowing Nails

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, April 1, 2016, In : Reviews 
I've always loved summer. It's the only time of the year when you can go a bit playful and experimental and get away with almost anything, fashion-wise. And with the runway trends tilting towards more vibrant colors, why not head that way too in choosing the colors to put on our tips?

Girlstuff, one of the local brands I truly believe in, has recently launched their colorful summer collection and Solique UV-Glow Gel Top Coat, a revolutionary product that can make any nail color glow under UV l...

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.

Back to Soft Baby Feet

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, November 27, 2015, In : Reviews 
A self-confessed shoe addict, I often feel guilty for what I've had my soles gone through. No matter how much I tell myself that it's okay to wear those six-inch heels since they're made with the highest quality of leather and cushioning anyway, it still take a toll on my feet. My chiropractor even told me I need to start considering wearing only up to 2 & a half inch at the most or I might end up hurting my spine! Anyways, point is... we ladies most likely have worse feet condition than men ...

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...

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...

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...

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 ...

All About Eyes

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, September 16, 2013, In : Reviews 
Since the K-Palette brand arrived in Manila two years ago, I lost count on how many times I've featured it here in my blog. My makeup kits aren't complete without their line of eyeliners. So it's always with excitement to receive an invitation for another K-Palette product launch. 

Last weekend, fashion and beauty bloggers alike attended K-Palette's D.Eye.Y Event at Geisha BHS Fort.


The Furoshiki wrapping technique is a very smart and eco way to wrap gifts using garments instead of paper.

Unfurgivable

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, January 6, 2012, In : Announcements 
Unlike most women, I highly crave meat and protein-rich food than carbs. I'd gladly pass up on dessert to devour a lean piece of steak. I cannot give up eating meat, though I've tried doing so a couple of times in 2006 after seeing a video on animal rights by PETA. It has saddened me to realize I can never be a vegetarian. But even so, I still advocate animal rights, being a pet owner myself. So here's something to help support an advocacy on animal rights:

Majolica Majorca Grand Launch

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, June 8, 2011, In : News 
Finally, after months of mourning for Japan, Majolica Majorca (the masstige brand of Shiseido) held their long-awaited grandiose launch party at Opus last Wednesday, June 1. The launch event that was supposedly held in March was postponed to give respect and keep solemn during the unfortunate tragedy that happened in the native origin of this wonderful brand.

Upon entering Opus that was transformed into an enchanted and whimsical wonderland, we were greeted by MJ’s PR team and were given f...

Princess Kate's Bridal Hair & Make-up

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, May 2, 2011, In : News 
Kate Middleton's wedding beauty look was the first thing I eyed on when I saw the live feed of the Royal Wedding last Friday. The new Duchess of Cambridge chose to keep her hair down and long in soft waves, topped off with an understated lace veil over her Cartier tiara. Her flowy hair was courtesy of her longtime stylist, James Pryce of Richard Ward salon in London."Catherine’s bridal look is called the 'demi chignon' — an updo style which combines a classic bridal look with a regal, cou...

When Myra 400E publicly announced and launched it’s new endorser last March 18 at Thaipan restaurant, it is of no surprise that they chose someone talented, dedicated and beautiful both inside and out. For years, Myra’s objective has always been about bringing out beauty that is more than just skin deep. And who else can reflect what the brand stands for but the admirable Iza Calzado, who’s ever so blooming especially at the event.

Beauty Raves From Globes

My top picks and favorite beauty looks from The 68th Golden Globes.


January Jones' Old Hollywood Waves

Topping the list is of course January Jones who nailed it with her glossy '40s blonde hairstyle, teamed with a rich red lip. Her classy look spelled out serious glamour. 


Olivia Wilde’s French Maiden Look

Olivia’s makeup look was inspired by images she collected of what she refers to as ‘the French girl.’ Celebrity makeup artist Spencer Barnes kept her face fresh and clean, pairing it wi...

Top Beauty Trends at The 68th Golden Globes

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, January 18, 2011, In : Trend Reports 
Three reasons why I love Golden Globes: 
1. It's the bumper start of awards season.
2. They mix all of our favorite stars from film and TV.
3. We get to see the latest trends.

Loud Lips

A handful of stars brightened their pearly whites with poppy pout polish. Natalie Portman and Julia Stiles both picked petal pink, while Piper Perabo swiped on a fresh red, and Jayma Mays chose an orange hue.

Retro Hair

In an ode to Old Hollywood Glamour, actresses Mila Jovovich, Megan Fox, and January Jones ...

In-Cosmetics Asia 2010

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, November 9, 2010,
Aside from visiting my two-month old niece, I flew to Bangkok last week to attend one of Asia's most prestigious cosmetics trade show. In-cosmetics Asia was designed and established for cosmetic manufacturers, formulators, scientists and sales & marketing experts keen to meet exhibiting personal care ingredient suppliers. I already have a fair share of experience in the marketing and creative side of the beauty industry, I thought maybe it's time I learn the technical aspect of it. The focus ...

Artistry of Life World Tour

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, October 12, 2010, In : News 
It's no secret that one of the many perks of being a beauty blogger is being invited to events and product launches thrown by cosmetic giants. Those who know me knows that I'm not really fond of attending as a huge part of my previous corporate job, where I did PR and marketing for a multinational cosmetics company, was organizing and materializing these events. In any occassion that I do attend, it would only mean one thing -- that I actually believe in the brand and in the products they mak...

Best Beauty Looks From The Oscars

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, March 8, 2010, In : Celebrities 

careymulligan_main.jpg
haven't been too impressed by the hair and makeup looks throughout this awards show season (especially the overplayed rumpled-updo-with-one-lank-piece-drooping-over-the-shoulder). But some of our favorite stars finally redeemed themselves at the ultimate ceremony last night, the Academy Awards. Many A-listers avoided the trendy traps and simply played up their best assets and looked stunning. Here my our picks for the top 5 beauty looks from the Oscars.

Sandra Bullock: Best of Oscars 2010

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, March 8, 2010, In : Celebrities 

Days before the Academy Awards, critics were saying Sandra Bullock had a very odd chance of winning the Oscar. Well, the actress didn't think so as she came in the show red-carpet ready, prepped with Best Actress-caliber beauty by Glam Squad headed by celebrity makeup artist Angela Levin for Chanel Beauty and hairstylist Adir Abergel for Frédéric Fekkai.

Sandra looked absolutely deserving of the award she took home with her modern-classy Hollywood makeup: dewy skin, soft eyes, and a bold red...

Red Lips at the Golden Globes

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, January 20, 2010, In : Celebrities 
Minimally glamorous beauty accessorized what seemed to be a never-ending assortment of one-shouldered dresses at Sunday night’s rainy Golden Globes ceremony. Chloë Sevigny, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Drew Barrymore fought the weather with sleek, pulled-back chignons, while Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock worked lower, looser side-parted adaptations of the same style. There were some updo dissenters as well, with Jennifer Aniston and Julia Roberts bucking the humidity and keeping their tresses...
