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.

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)...

International Press Shopping Day

Posted by Dior Co on Saturday, September 17, 2016, In : Reviews 
Why would you choose a similar shade of lipstick worth thousands over a tube of the same shade that's just a hundred bucks? I understand the lure of just getting a “dupe” instead of a more expensive brand, but if you’re anything like me who finds joy in all things pretty, splurging makes sense. Not only does the chic packaging gets me sold, but the peace of mind that comes with having the best ingredients and pigments be applied on my face is worth the extra cash out.

A few weeks ago, L...

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...

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...

Review: Guerlain KissKiss Roselip

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, September 22, 2015, In : Reviews 
Last year, I had the pleasure and honour to be chosen as one of Guerlain's KissKiss Style Icons. It was a no brainer to say yes when asked as Guerlain has been one of the most trusted beauty brands I've loved. This Fall, Guerlain introduces Bloom of Rose, an unexpected, versatile, and ultra-feminine lip collection to follow suit their original KissKiss lipstick line.

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".

Review: Ofra Lipsticks

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, October 2, 2014, In : Reviews 
Let me let you in a little secret -- I hate retouching! I would give ample time in the morning to do a decent face but I totally skip the entire retouching in the afternoon session. Given that, I'm always on the lookout for products that are long-lasting enough to last me through the day. But usually, the these long-lasting cosmetics contain lead that dries out our skin and lips and worse, can be toxic if used frequently.

Fortunately, there are brands out there that deal with this issue and o...

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.

It's so nice to see the Benefit PH team again after missing consecutively three of their events! Being surrounded with people who share the same passion as I have with beauty is probably one of the top five reasons why I still blog even if I barely have time for it nowadays.

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,...

Looking Fresh

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, October 23, 2012, In : Reviews 
For three straight days now, I've been getting lots of compliments on my skin. At first, I thought it may just have been a good skin day for me, but when day 3 came and kind compliments still kept on coming in, I realized it may be because of the makeup I've been using. 

My brother just came home from the States and took home with him my orders from Sephora and Amazon. Two of the ones I immediately used from the basket are Diorskin Forever Compact Powder Foundation and YSL Rouge Volupte in N...

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...

Germany's number one cosmetic brand is back in Manila! Operated for a few years and gone for about two years, ArtDeco is available to us again, but this time, in a more posh home in Beauty Bar.

Fall 2011 Top 10 Beauty Trends

Crackle nail polish; orange eyeshadow; hair feathers. The beauty trends of spring and summer were audacious, bohemian, and sometimes, downright insane.

Luckily, for our beauty sanity, the trends for this fall are way more understated. Models on runways were rocking modern takes on classic looks with bold brows, skin-flattering lip colors, and barely there foundation. Here are 10 makeup looks from Fall 2011 Fashion Week that will help you tiptoe into the new season.

Red Lips for the Holidays

Red lips are perfect holiday party makeup—I can't think of anything else that looks as instantly sexy or festive—but they do require some TLC. Here's some tricks on how to achieve the perfect red lips for the holidays.


 
Find your best red. If you want to try something trendy, orange-red lips are popular right now. And as for skin tone, orange-red works on mostly everyone, though it can bring out any yellow in your teeth. If you want to play it safe, a blue-based classic red is universally ...

The Power of Red Lips

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, December 15, 2010, In : News 
Apparently, a new study from Manchester University found that men notice lips far more than other features on the face. Scientists used eye-tracking software to show that, in ten seconds, men will spend more than half of that time staring at a woman’s lips. Geoff Beattie, who led the investigation, examines the red lip trend that started way before Swift took the stage (or was even born). “Our research suggests that lip color and perceived attractiveness are still inextricably linked, wit...

Lip Mattifier

Posted by Dior Co on Sunday, December 12, 2010, In : News 
The latest on lip make-up innovation? A lip primer that mattifies any lipstick while at the same time providing moisture to the lips. Chapped-lip season is not quite the best time for a matte lip (as most matte-finish lipsticks have drying ingredients that flakes the lips). As temperatures continue their downward spiral and our shiny lip balm usage continues to climb, it becomes increasingly difficult to maintain a perfectly glisten-less texture. But leave it to Serge Lutens to offer up a sol...

Nars cosmetics just came out with their Holiday Collection 2010 today.

How To Pull Off Bright Lips

Cherry red, hot pink, tangerine... The entirety of Milan to New York to Tokyo has been loud enough to express lip color boldness this year.

Orange is the New Red

Orange lipstick is one of those bold makeup choices that I always thought was more about the attitude of the wearer than anything about their complexion, style, or any other superficial trait. There's no better time to test your bold attitude than now when the red carpet and runways have been flocked by celebs sporting the funkier version of the classic red. Tangerine, tomato, copper, coral, peach, mango and even a cinnamon orange lipstick is very becoming this year for events, shows and even...

Each tube is $45, which isn't cheap by any lipstick standard, but here's why I love them: These little babies are pigment-rich, so a little goes a long way. There's an array of pretty, flattering reds, nudes, and pinks. They're semi-matte, but feel creamy going on and don't dry...

It's a limited edition shade from it's 2007 Spring make-up collection but I just got word from the brand that it has been reinstated as a regular shade (Yayy!). Those who find the shade too bright might want to opt for a paler shade which is more popu...

The Perfect Lipstick Shade for Spring

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, March 9, 2010, In : Reviews 


I always find myself mixing two to three lipstick shades to achieve a perfect I'm in the mood for, despite having more than 50 lipsticks in my stack-pile in my make-up arsenal. It just seems to be impossible to find the perfect shade of lipstick I want in a tube! But, as my Spring make-up newest find would prove, it still is possible. Guerlain Galia (#3) Rouge G Lipstick is a pink-beige nude lipstick with a creamy, lightly glossy look. It has no real detectable shimmer, but it has this soft s...

Gaga And Cyndi Both Think Pink

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, February 10, 2010, In : Celebrities 


Last year, I let you in on the well-guarded secret about MAC’s newest Viva Glam campaign stars, and finally, after months of embargoes, I've got the dish on the products they’ll actually be hawking. The "From Our Lips" edition of MAC’s successful charitable franchise, which donates 100 percent of the proceeds generated from the sales of limited-edition products to the MAC AIDS Fund, features two pink lipsticks—Cyndi Lauper’s rose-watermelon hue and Lady Gaga’s bubblegum pink. Both...

Lipstain Marker Pen?

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, February 9, 2010, In : Reviews 
Everyone who has gotten close to my personal beauty kit knows that I'm not a lipstick girl. I'm one of people who just can't stand having color stains on her coffee cups. However, because of my naturally pale lips, I need to add a hint of color. It's been 8 years now since I started using cheek and lip stains on my pucker but it has always been an issue to me the delivery system of the product. I can't afford a change of clothes if ever the product drops on my top! Thank God Covergirl introdu...

D&G Roses Collection

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, February 8, 2010, In : Collection 

One year ago,  Dolce and Gabbana locked the face-painting establishment with their first entry into the beauty game: a line of face, lip, eye, and nail products simply called The Makeup. To mark the first anniversary, they’ll release the Roses Collection this month. Each of the five new pout perfecters has been designed in homage to an antique wild rose that has been cultivated as a modern hybrid and bears a subtle fragrance akin to that of Sicily’s famed floral gardens. Scarlett Fire Ros...

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...

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...

MAC got Gaga, and Cyndi Lauper Too!

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, November 9, 2009, In : News 
Last November 2, something entirely epic happened. To celebrate the announcement that Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper have been named the latest faces of the MAC AIDS Fund, both women gathered in the same room—Champagne in hand—all but a foot away from us. (Calling the moment “life-changing” would not be an overstatement.) The newest campaign, which is called From Our Lips, will break on February 25 in Canada and the US and includes two new lipsticks, aptly called MAC Viva Glam Gaga Lipsti...

Michael Kors Does Make-up

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, November 3, 2009, In : News 


Michael Kors is the latest designer to embrace the world of color cosmetics. The Project Runway judge has inked a deal with Estée Lauder to bring his "Very Hollywood" concept from fragrance to makeup. Scheduled to launch in January, the 19-piece line is awash in beige, corals, pinks, and shimmer. Less about “heavy makeup” than it is about a “sporty glow,” the collection is an homage to a low-key, modern Hollywood glamour that the designer equates with wearing flip-flops and eating gr...

Dior Cases the Compact

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, October 28, 2009, In : Reviews 
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...

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...

Vena Cava Goes Deep For Spring

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

 

Backstage at the Vena Cava show, models were walking between the hair and makeup stations sporting deep violet pouts, a hue that tends to be included in the fall color palette more so than spring. “Makeup doesn’t have to be seasonal,” makeup artist Lloyd Simmonds explained of the custom color he created using four different shades of MAC Pro Lipmix in White, Burgundy, Red, and Blue. Unwilling to make the call that darker lip shades will persist into next year (”this is my first show!...

Bobbi Brown Gives Good Gloss

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, August 5, 2009, In : Reviews 

After they met on the slopes in Telluride (where all great ideas are hatched), Lauren Bush partnered with Bobbi Brown for the latest installment of her successful Feed bag line. The result of their collaboration, an organic makeup bag, will be filled with three of Brown’s best-selling lip glosses in Petal, Rose Sugar, and Aubergine when it goes on sale in October. It also does double duty as a clutch, and proceeds from its $50 price tag go to the United Nation's World Food Program's Food fo...
