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)...

Eyes on Fleek

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, October 4, 2016, In : Announcements 
Whenever I hold private one-on-one or group makeup classes, the one thing my students are eager to learn is how to do the eye makeup. And yes, it's the most challenging tedious part of any makeover that most of us just leave it out when we do our faces.

This year, The SM Beauty Store encourages us not to skip our eyes and teaches us the basics on how to achieve eyes on fleek! By offering us great deals on eye makeup from brands under its roof, SM Beauty tells us that there's no excuse to no...

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.

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...

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...

Keeping it Real

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, July 21, 2014, In : Reviews 
It's no secret that They're Real Mascara has been one my favourite go-to mascara for everyday use as it has a way of enhancing my eyes and lashes without looking overdone. So imagine my excitement when I discovered that they have now extended the "They're Real" line to a gel eyeliner and eye makeup remover.



Let me focus for now on They're Real Push-Up Liner, an innovative and waterproof lash-hugging gel liner pen. It's the first fool-proof and budge-proof gel liner in a pen with a matte blac...

Eye of Horus

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, November 25, 2013, In : Events 
The search for the best eye product that doesn't smear is like looking for the fountain of youth. A new product that promises to be smudge-proof gets launched so very often that it makes us doubt if there's really one that's effective in defining the eyes without running. I've probably wrote too many blog entries on this subject in my blog, and still will be writing reviews on upcoming products that promises the same. 

Glamourbox PH invited makeup artists and beauty bloggers last week to intro...

Push & Pop Party

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, October 31, 2013, In : Events 
When you're nearing your 30's, the word party doesn't really trigger excitement anymore like it used to in your teens. Now, it just meant loud music and claustrophobia that leads to exhaustion and an excuse to leave before midnight -- just when the party is about to start. So it's refreshing to attend a party that starts at dinner time, with a few people to chat with in an intimate setting.

That's exactly what my Wednesday night was at the Benefit Push & Pop Party -- a night of catching up wit...

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 ...

The Rise of Japanese Cosmetics

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, December 4, 2012, In : Reviews 
I've just heard news this week that many Western women have recently started seeking out Japanese cosmetics for the products' superior quality to that of American and European brands — even when it comes to the cheapest drugstore finds. 
 
“It’s a bit of a stereotype that Japanese makeup is all about the white face and over-the-top mascara,” said Rowena Fan, 28, an England-based online marketer who also blogs at cosmetic-candy.com. “If anything it’s about healthy flawless skin, glo...

Q&A: Waterproof Mascara, Bad or Good?

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, March 31, 2011, In : Tips 
Q: Is it true that waterproof mascaras are bad for the lashes?  

A: The thing about mascaras with waterproof formula, they don't really harm the lashes per se but they're harder to take off at night. So it is more likely that you will be rougher on your lashes when trying to remove the mascara, which risks lash loss. As long as you're gentle with your lashes when removing the product, I don't see any harm. Also, use a reputable oil-based eye makeup remover to dissolve the mascara completely an...

Majolica Majorca!

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, March 25, 2011, In : Reviews 
The more affordable subsidiary brand of Shiseido Japan is now in Manila! Majolica Majorca opened last March 13 in SM Makati where it joined most of the coveted make-up brands we have in the country today. It was real excitement when I first heard from a colleague, who now is handling the make-up brand, that Luxasia finally decided to bring in one of the cutest make-up brands I adored since I was a teenager! 

So I went over to SM Makati cosmetics department as usual to window shop; This time ar...

Givenchy Phenom’ Eyes Mascara

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, July 28, 2009, In : Reviews 

90% of make-up artists I know in the industry share one distinct obsession: mascara. No matter how great your eyeshadow or blush or lipstick application you did, it wouldn't be complete without enhancing those lashes. Just see of how the eyelash perming and weaving business skyrocketed in the past year and you'd know how women adores long lush prettied up lashes.


I myself spend not so much on buying expensive mascaras as I always toss them once they're three months old. I find it impractical...
