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...

Primadonna x Kathryn Bernardo

Posted by Dior Co on Saturday, August 29, 2015, In : Announcements 
I've faintly remember passing by the Primadonna store in SM Megamall when I was in my early 20's. I never really went in the store as I felt the selection of shoes they have are a tad bit 'old' for my taste. However, last year, the brand was revamped to cater to the new modern style of Filipinas. It's now one of the lifestyle footwear brands known for carrying the latest trends for women’s shoes. No wonder it has now grown into a retail force of over 50 vibrant and dynamic stores nationwide...

Perks of Online Shopping

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, August 10, 2015, In : Tips 
I am not one who'd rather shop online but despite the thousands of retail shops we now have in Manila, there are still some things that only the internet can offer. And with the migraine-inducing traffic we face everyday, it's only but wise to turn to online shops nowadays.There still are many people who are hesitant to buy online and I was one of them before. 

According to Superagents PH, the newest online portal where you can buy from a wide range of products and services, from gadgets, insu...

Air Optix Colors

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, May 8, 2015, In : Reviews 
To be real honest, I can't remember the last time I wore contact lenses as they are more of an accessory to me rather than a necessity. I remember though that what made me stop wearing them is the discomfort of having to bear dry eyes and consistently putting on saline drops every hour.

Just last Wednesday, I attended the launch of AIR OPTIX® COLORS. It's the first I've heard of Air Optix and so I listened intently on the program hosted by Sam Oh and here's what you need to know:

Eye of Horus Metallic Icons

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, November 12, 2014,
Last week, makeup artists and beauty bloggers were invited to an exclusive intimate afternoon tea to meet with Amy Lennane of Eye of Horus Australia. On the way to Lusso, I was already pondering on what they might have in store for us. Another eye product I imagined as Eye of Horus is a brand that's been well-known for their high-quality eye products.

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 ...

Add Blink to Your Bling

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, October 24, 2014, In : Reviews 
Lately, I've been seeing a lot of jewellery tattoos in my Instagram feed. It seems like this trend that were first seen in the runways last year has finally catched up on us. I've seen them in person from other friends in the beauty industry and I drooled every single time. But when I asked around how much they were, they retail for P1,300 per sheet! And to think they'd only last for less than a week, I thought twice before buying one for myself.

Fortunately that same week, a beauty and fashio...

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.

Feet Fête

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, November 14, 2013, In : Event 
Nail and Co., the go-to nail salon of most BGC residents, is having a feet celebration this weekend in partnership with local shoe brand Renegade Folk. On November 15 and 16, they are throwing in a free pedicure for every purchase of Renegade Folk sandals from their Holiday 2013 collection. 

100% of the proceeds from that weekend will go to the victims of Yolanda. 

I was fortunate enough to get an invite to try out their services and went home with a free pair of Renegade Folk sandals too!).

Be Unstoppable With ZA

ZA, as the brand name implies, offers a-to-z products to draw about any metropolitan woman's potential to achieve beauty. Simple yet elaborately designed, ZA promises to draw out radiance with straight-forward products that can be understood and used by any.

Straight from the Shisiedo laboratories, ZA cosmetics was developed with over 50 years of research of Asian Skin. And with a price range that's easy on our wallets, my excitement is beyond words when it was announced early March that i...

Illuminate with FreshLook Contact Lens

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, June 5, 2013, In : Reviews 
I have been blessed in so many ways I cannot even dare ask God for more. And this includes my 20/20 vision. Well, maybe not exactly 20/20 as I was already advised to start wearing a 50/25 pair of reading glasses for days when I have a pile of documents to scan through or when I plan to face my laptop monitor for hours. But still, I'm still very thankful I don't need to wear glasses or endure putting on contact lenses everyday.

I've had my share of contact lenses in the past for the sheer sake ...

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...

The New Glorietta Vibe

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, December 6, 2012,
Never have I thought of gracing the ramp with the country's top models and personalities. But when I was invited by friend and fellow blogger Liz to walk for Ferretti, one of Glorietta's merchants, who can say no? To be a part of history, beating the Guinness World Record for the "Most People Modeling" on a catwalk, was a privilege and an opportunity anyone wouldn't want to miss out on.

Imperative Nails

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, October 29, 2012, In : Reviews 
When the nail art craze arrived in Manila early 2008, I wasn't one of those who immediately ran to nail salons to have tiny bits of accessories attached to my tips. It wasn't practical for someone who uses her hands daily for her craft to attach so many foreign objects on her nails. Maybe the prints were too much for me to handle, or it was just too high maintenance. I just want my nails in one color or in classic french tips. No way will I attach an acrylic or have gel glued on my nails with...

Elie Saab: From Couture to Perfume

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, September 10, 2012, In : Reviews 
Do you remember those moments in your life when you fell in love at first sight? One of those moments I could vividly remember was when I was 17, watching FTV for the first time. I wasn't really into fashion. The only personality that time whose fashion I adored was Carrie Bradshaw's -- until that time when Elie Saab's haute couture line was showed in FTV. That was his first year of fashion week (he was just new in the industry then), and amongst all the designers that came out in that segmen...

You'd know a certain fashion house or brand is growing when it starts expanding. And what better way to do so than by growing your business from fashion to the beauty industry. This seemed to be a trend that started a couple of years ago when such designers such as Tom Ford and Michael Kors diversified their business from apparel to cosmetics. Today, one of my favorite designers, Oscar de la Renta, just launched to the public its to-die-for first-ever beauty products in its line -- nail polis...

Q&A: Make-up Artist Attire

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, May 9, 2012, In : Tips 
Q: Hi Dior! I'm starting my journey into making makeup artistry as a career. Just a question, what do you wear when on the job?

A: When I went to my makeup training schools, they always advise us to wear black. They say it's the signature "makeup artist attire." The same thing was followed when I was in L'Oreal. I did retail training for the beauty advisers of Shu Uemura and the rule was to have all our makeup artists wear black. Well it only makes sense -- black looks professional, it almost ...

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:

Dior Meows For Fall

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, September 28, 2011, In : Collection 
Though a fan of anything fab, I'm kind of a bit allergic to trends especially if it goes "too mainstream". But I can't help but love leopard print the way almost everyone loves it now. Scarves, dresses, shoes, even phone accessories, you name it -- I seem to have hoarded them all. And the one more thing I'm eyeing right now that would make me fully embrace the jungle and prowl the sidewalks of autumn is Dior's Mitzah Bricard-inspired limited edition make-up collection. For fall, Dior has rele...

H&M Cosmetics

During my short trip to Hong Kong last week, I finally had the chance to check out H&M's cosmetic line. I wasn't really excited to see it. I mean, I'd probably be better off buying from a brand that makes cosmetics, not clothes. And it's a good thing I didn't expect so much because really, there was a lot of cosmetics but I hardly had the desire to buy any of it. Here's why:

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:

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

Make-up to Match the Outfit

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, November 18, 2010, In : Make-up Looks 
It was cute to see Hilary Swank pair an aqua eyeliner with her aqua-colored dress. Today, I just heard that Diane Kruger used to pick out dresses based on whether they would match her signature red lips. While I'm not thinking "will this halter dress go with my favorite shadow?" when shopping, I definitely put thought into how my makeup will jive with the rest of my outfit. "When I want to stand out, I wear vivid orange-red lips—so I have to make sure my clothes balance them. I usually go w...

Portman wore a floral Rodarte dress showcasing a makeup look that was equally in bloom at the screening of Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan, the film where Natalie Portman starred . To bring out the pinks and purples in the strapless frock, she chose to apply a concentrated amount of pink blush on the apples of her cheeks and a pink-violet sheer lipstick for an equally rosy pout. With her new Dior cosmetics contract (look out for Portman in ad visuals beginning next year), the brand’s new Ro...

Willow Smith: New Trend-setter?

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, September 28, 2010, In : Celebrities 

How young is too young to attend Milan fashion shows? Apparently, there's no age restriction as Willow Smith—daughter of Will and Jada—turned up at a few of the bigger Milan shows with her perfectly toned mom. I was intrigued and yes, even impressed by her front-row beauty and fashion choices. The nine-year-old’s most outlandish sartorial decision perhaps came  in the form of a bold-shouldered snow leopard jacket that she wore to Ferregamo's show. But even that piece of exceptional oute...

History of New York Fashion Week

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, February 22, 2010, In : News 

valentino_1968_main.jpgThere I was last week, getting perked up for yet another season of New York Fashion Week shows, when a segment on how the whole shindig came about came on YouTube. WNYC, an NPR station, provided the history of the bi-annual event -- I thought it would be fun to pass on some of the cool things I learned:

1. NYFW actually started during World War II, as, for the first time, allies of the French were cut off from fashion news due to the occupation of Paris by the Nazis.

2. Publicist and fashion-en...

Gray Nails At NY Fashion Week

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, February 22, 2010, In : Trend Reports 

Last February 17 at Oscar de la Renta, manicurist Yuna Park applied a totally lust-worthy deep asphalt lacquer to models’ fingertips. “I couldn’t find the right shade so I had to make this one,” Park told the media, dashing any hopes we may have had about getting our hands on a bottle. But all is not lost: Park used a nearly identical grayish-blue varnish the next morning at the L’Wren Scott show. (Even Scott herself was sporting it and reportedly created this version with Lancôme...

Shock hit the international fashion world today as news of British designer McQueen's apparent suicide circled the globe, the same day fashion week kicked off in New York.

McQueen, 40, was found dead at his home in west London this morning. Scotland Yard is not treating the death as suspicious, but early reports of a suicide have not been confirmed by police.

"We are devastated and in shock," said Samantha Garrett, the communications director for the Alexander McQueen fashion house.

Drew Barrymore at The 67th Golden Globes

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, January 19, 2010, In : Celebrities 

I don't know about you, but I am totally a Red Carpet junkie! For someone who doesn't wake up early, I make it a point to wake up to catch every live broadcast of Award Shows every start of the year. Yesterday's 67th Annual Golden Globes Award was on in Star World live via satellite. Frankly, the show wasn't as good as last year's and most of the attendees weren't as show-stopping either -- maybe because of the unexpected rain that ruined most of their dresses and hair do's while walking on t...

Is It Spring Yet?

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, January 19, 2010, In : Make-up Looks 
An old British Vogue editorial starring Sasha Pivovarova has been circulating the blogosphere today, thanks to one of my favorite websites devoted to fashion photos, and it’s screaming “spring” in a way that’s made me temporarily forget about the cool chill outside. Go on, take a good long look. Pivovarova, whose angular face is frequently utilized in a hauntingly beautiful kind of way, is the picture of soft romance here thanks to the power of pink. It’s really the trifecta of the ...

The Out-Of-The-Box Alex Box

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, October 28, 2009, In : Make-up Looks 
Alex Box RankinAs the creative director behind Illamasqua and Gareth Pugh’s go-to makeup artist, Alex Box isn’t really known for her way with the “natural look.” Case in point: For Pugh’s Spring Presentation, Box sent ashen gray faces onto the runway, with red eyes for that extra touch of creepy. Her unique ability to turn cosmetics into conceptual art went on display at Kentish Town’s newly opened Annroy Gallery last week, where Box, clad in a black-and-white sequined Pugh number—with top hat...

Colored Mascara, Anyone?

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, September 15, 2009, In : Trend Reports 
I’ve always been slightly on the fence about colored mascaras. In theory, they strike us as an interesting way to do something a little different with your typical beauty routine; in practice, they come across more juvenile than chic. They are here to stay, though, at least for the short term, making appearances in a slew of recent color collections, from YSL to Estee Lauder, and at yesterday’s DKNY show. “Donna [Karan] wanted something youthful and fresh with a fun accent,” makeup ar...

The Statement Lip Continues To Dominate

Posted by Dior Co on Sunday, September 13, 2009, In : Trend Reports 

Alright. We may only be three days into the spring shows, but we’re going to go ahead and call it: the Statement Lip is here to stay, with the season’s predictable nudes and sheer pastel glosses being replaced by the deep, opulent pouts popular for Fall. Lucia Pieroni’s handiwork backstage at Jason Wu yesterday sealed the deal. In an attempt to recreate a “Tim Burton girl with big, simple sparkling eyes and amazing lips,” Pieroni came up with three different lip shades, each more de...

Forever 21 Has Beauty On The Mind

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

If Forever 21’s recent venture into swimwear went well with your shopping budget for summer, you’ll be excited to know that they’ve got something even more recessionista-friendly planned for Fall. Yes, that’s right, the discounted retailer known for its ability to reproduce popular designer styles and sell them at a fraction of the cost plans to enter the beauty market later this year, according to WWD. And with that whole lawsuit nearly behind them, there’s plenty of room to rip of...
