Effortless Beauty by Happy Skin Sakura Bloom Collection

November 30, 2017

It's pink, loaded with sakuras (aka. cherry blossoms), skincare that's K-beauty and J-beauty inspired, and is from Happy Skin. Seriously, am I in beauty heaven?


Close, I assume since Happy Skin just came up with another breakthrough duo that's dedicated to my current obsession: chok chok skincare!
Since it pioneered providing both makeup + skincare in 2013, Happy Skin—an original, homegrown beauty brand—has been continuously fulfilling its promise of making the skin happy through innovative products. The brand’s journey started by offering makeup that cares for the skin, and after four years, it’s strengthening the core of its commitment with its first foray outside of makeup and into skincare.

Happy Skin co-founder Rissa Mananquil Trillo explains why: “It was only natural that the brand expands into skincare,” she shares. “Apart from the strong equity Happy Skin has built as the country’s go-to skin-caring makeup, so many consumers have been asking Happy Skin to launch skincare because of their huge trust in the brand’s ability to really care for the skin.”

“It was Happy Skin that started offering skin-caring makeup, and the brand grew because its loyal consumers know that the makeup works just from their experience of it,” agrees co-founder Jacqe Yuengtian-Gutierrez. “And it makes sense for them to tap into skincare from a brand they already believe in! By expanding, we’re making it easier for consumers to get the whole benefit of Happy Skin—from makeup to skincare.”

The Latest and Greatest K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Real Lasting Eyeliners

November 21, 2017

Can the best get even better? K-Palette thinks so! They recently launched the reformulated 1 Day Tattoo Real Lasting Eyeliners (Php 795) making it super waterproof, easier to draw with, vivid colour, eye & lash care, and easier to remove with warm water plus doesn't stain the skin. WHEW! That's a whole lot of good stuff -- exactly why these are my HG eyeliner since forever! :)

Thrice As Nice: BLK Cosmetics

November 20, 2017

I finally found the luxury of time and a not-so busy BLK Cosmetics counter last weekend! :) I've been lemming to try out their stuff for the longest time but mannnnn they have one of the busiest Beauty by SM counters out there! My mom was far more resilient than I am, braving one counter with me a while back where she got a lipstick for herself. Case point:


Anyway, one of the reasons why I wanted unhurried time checking out their stuff is for me to better try their All-Day Matte Powder Foundation (Php 399):


When I first tried it I was all meh about it because I found it too powdery. Yesterday, I only had my skin care on so I thought why not give this another swig using my Beauty Blender (I don't carry one around all the time but was definitely glad I had one on hand LOL).
