BEAUTY BULLETIN: New Makeup and Skin Care!

Beauty Bulletin overload! There are so many awesome beauty releases for summer that you won't be able to keep your hands to yourself when you visit their respective boutiques! Ack!

Breathe in, breath out. Whew! Sharing with you now these drool and check- worthy releases from Benefit, L'Oreal, Tresemme, LA Splash, Belo Essentials, Covergirl, and Belo Baby (YAS!).

Heat and sweat are the top enemies of pores; they clog, open pores, and induce oil, making you more prone to breakouts and less prepared for photo ops and selfie situations! Tough enemies require tough super heroes and to save you from Pore-blems, The Porefessional Matte Rescue and The Porefessional Instant Wipe Out Masks will save the day!

New The Porefessional Matte Rescue is a lightweight, water- based gel primer and pore minimizer that smooths out pores, mattifies, and helps extend the life of makeup. The secret ingredient here is Diamond powder that provides a soft- focus effect. Best used during the day, specifically after moisturizer and before makeup.

New The Porefessional Instant Wipe Out Masks is a pack of 8 power- packed cleansing masks that rid pores of dirt, oil, makeup, and anything that might cause a pore-mergency. The secret of this product? A mushroom extract that is known to clarify pores in a serum that stays fresh until you pop the emergency button; use the smooth side as mask and the textured side to wipe away any more residues. The pack contains 8 masks.

Matte Rescue retails at P1,600.00 and Instant Wipe Out Masks at P1,800.00; both are now available in all Benefit boutiques and counters. Visit BENEFIT COSMETICS PHILIPPINES On Facebook for more information about this product.

Fanny Serrano Cosmetics is one of the classic local drugstore makeup brands that a lot of people have come to love for their pigmented, pro- quality products at an affordable price; some even claim that most of their products are dupes of high end makeup brands! They have reinvented themselves this year and will now be known as Features And Shades Cosmetics (FS Cosmetics), but they're still carrying the same products and formula that their patrons have come to love. In this photo, you'll see their five best- sellers: Powder Foundation, Matte Lipstick, Concealer/Foundation, and Powder Blush. So far, I'm enjoying the concealer! I'll try the powder foundation next.

L'Oreal Paris Philippines unveils their newest ambassadors for 2016. Aptly called women of worth, these three local showbiz stalwarts epitomize sheer beauty. Dawn, Solenn, and Cheska join the likes of Susan Sarandon, Barbara Palvin, Blake Lively, Karlie Kloss, and Jennifer Lopez to name a few as L'Oreal's global endorsers, representing the beauty that is the Filipina.

Solenn represents the makeup category; her multi-faceted personality and love for art makes her the perfect face of L'Oreal's makeup range. Solenn will champion the brand's mission of helping each and every woman find their worth at the stroke of a liner, a sweep of a blush, and a touch of statement lip color.

Dawn represents L'Oreal's anti-aging skin care range; seemingly timeless and ageless, Dawn will help remind women each and every single day that self- love, happiness, and a really good skin care range are the keys to an eternally youthful glow.

Cheska fronts L'Oreal's hair care range; she will inspire women to embrace change in different ways from big to small such as changing hair color.

On top of having new endorsers, L'Oreal has new makeup products too!

True Match Genius, the newest foundation to join their best- selling range, claims to be a smart makeup with 4-in-1 uses: it can be a primer, foundation, concealer, and powder. Its oil- free, gel base and cream-to-powder formula aims to take the fuss out of perfecting your base so you'll be out the door in no time. True Match Genius comes in 6 shades and retails at P600.00

Brow Artist Chisel helps you achieve the straight brow trend as popularized by Korean celebrities, icons, and makeup aficionados. It features a unique chisel applicator that combines a spoolie and precise applicator to fluff the brows and straighten the tips for that straight brow success. Shades are Fashionista Marron (light brown) and Effortless Mahogany (Dark Brown) and retails at P400.00 only.

Balm Caresse is lipstick and lip balm hybrid that will be your go- to lip product this season. This delectable fruity- flavored lip product soothes, gives shine and color, hydrates, and moisturizes your puckers for up to 12 hours. Balm Caresse is available in 8 shades and retails at P350.00.

Mesmerize with Superstar Collection False Lash Superstar Mascara (P500.00), an international award- winning mascara that features fibers and a volumizing mascara for dramatic lashes. Complete the look with Super Liner Superstar (P400.00) that features a unique corseted applicator that claims to precisely follow the lids' shape in just one stroke.

Hair styling could very well be the next Strobing; we've been seeing a lot lately on Instagram girls sporting beach waves, tousled curls, and boho braids, a sign that women are slowly realizing how a styled 'do adds more 'oomph' to any outfit. However, styling and damage come in pairs; to enjoy various hair looks whilst still protecting your locks, try Tresemme Platinum Strength Renewing Complex, the newest addition to their professional, salon- quality hair care range; these products are meant to keep hair strong and aid it in regeneration to counter the negative effects of frequent styling. Recommended to be used if you're a frequent styler or before donning any hair style, wash and condition your hair first then cap off with the Stay Soft Leave In Treatment to nourish hair strands; at the end of each week, treat your hair to the complementing deep treatment mask to restore life and beauty to your locks.

Visit TRESEMME PHILIPPINES on Facebook for more information about this range.

Yes! Believe your eyes, one of the country's leading skin care brands, Belo, now has something for your infants and toddlers!

The line consists of a face and body lotion, hair and body wash, colognes, and a bar soap; nothing above P100.00! For more information, visit BELO BABY on Facebook.

A dewy, lightweight base and lip color are a must this scorching hot season. Looking forward to updating your vanity kit and switching to summer- ready makeup products? You might want to check out Covergirl's two new products that won't leave you a hot mess under the sun: Covergirl Outlast Stay Luminous Foundation (P795.00) gives you dewy skin minus the slick with its oil- free, grease- free formula. Covergirl Outlast Longwear + Moisture Lipstick is a moisture- rich lipstick that claims to stay without flaking or crumbling. Whoa!

Belo's best- selling Kojic Acid + Tranexamic range offers two new products that will take your whitening regimen to the next level: Exfoliating Soap and BB Cream.

Whiten skin times two with Kojic Acid + Tranexamic Acid Exfoliating soap (P64.75). The exfoliating beads help the skin shed dead skin cells, which sometimes cause darkness while the duo of Kojic and Tranexamic whiten skin further and beyond the cellular level.

Keep your skin fair and even, and enjoy 'round the clock whitening benefits with Belo BB Cream (P349.75); it yields gentle coverage that evens out the skin tone, SPF 50 PA++++ to protect the skin from further darkening, and Belo's Kojic Acid + Tranexamic Acid formula to whiten skin.

Both products are now available in all leading department stores and drugstores. Visit BELO ESSENTIALS on Facebook for more information about these products.

Add fun to your nails with LA Colors Color Craze Gel Polish. Formula yields a pigmented, gel- like finish that promises to last for days. Visit PUREBEAUTY on Facebook for more information about this product.

21 Lovely Thoughts

  1. Whoa Belo has infant range hope they could formulate spf for infant (my nephew was sunburned during our recent trip...I hate my cousin for this lol!).

    1. The aerosol Belo Sunexpert spray, I believe, is safe even for kids. :)

  2. Can't wait for you to review the new L'Oreal foundation and the Belo BB cream!

  3. Can't wait for your review of the new l'oreal foundation. It looks so promising. Also, I didn't know that FS cosmetics were good! And to think that their products are super affordable.

  4. Nice article. Amazing collection for the beauty product. Wanna buy the product.
    Beauty Store Online

  5. Really enjoyed reading this post ms.martha. Nakakaexcite yung FS and L'oreal products! 😍 Dawn really is an epitome of beauty. Could you please make a review sa FS concealer? Ive been looking for concealers lately and medyo nahihirapan ako hanapin yung right one for me. Thank you 😊

  6. wow new makeup and skincare lines! i really could say that Matte is In! Been eyeing that FS pressed powder that most of beauty enthusiast says it is comparable to MAC (i could not attest to it because I only tried lipsticks and eyeshadow from MAC but not their Blushes and Powders)

    I have tried that BB Cream from belo and loved it on the first day of use! Gonna grab something from their newly released product for babies

  7. Thank you for the informations Ms. Martha! :) My baby already tried the Belo Baby Hair and Body Bath Wash, and I really like it for my baby! My baby's skin became soft and smooth, unlike the other baby wash that made his skin dry. Love the new Belo product line! :) I also saw a FS Cosmetics counter last month in SM North, I thought it was a international brand. Please review the L'Oreal products, I'm looking forward for it.

    1. Amazing! :) I've been using Belo Baby's soap also and I love it. :)

  8. I am drooling. I am the most excited about the Benefit's primer but it is freaking expensive. I am oily and I've tried their primers and I am loving it. Have you tried Hourglass' primer? I've seen a lot of good reviews about it but I cannot afford to buy one.

    The FS products' packaging is so on point that I just want to try it. I still haven't got my hands on it. I am looking forward in trying their blush and concealer. Could you do a review about it? Thanks!

    I've tried a lot of L'oreal's products and I love it. And they always go on sale (the reason why I keep on buying). I want to try the new foundation! The packaging is on fleek.

    I use this Tresemme shampoo and conditioner. It helps in preventing slit ends and I don't know if this is a good thing or not, but it did removed my hair color too (the dye, I mean). Once I've emptied the both of these, i'll try the Keratin one.

    I love Belo soaps but as of the moment, I have a line of soaps to try and this will be following. Since it has exfoliating beads, I am mostly looking forward to this.

    Thanks for sharing this!

  9. I got so excited when i heard that Belo has a line for babies. My daughter is not a baby nor a toddler anymore but i still like to use baby lotions and other baby skin products on her.
    I'm gonna check out FS cosmetics tomorrow.

    1. We could all use baby products any day so I'm happy with the launch of Belo's baby line! :)

  10. I love, love, love FS Cosmetics! They look really good but they perform just super better! :) I love their lipstick and blush lines. My fave is the lipstick line because there's a mirror in every lipstick, which is totally useful! By any chance, do you know where I can buy LA Colors? Are they available in department stores? Thanks a lot! :)

    1. Yes, I noticed that too with FS's lipsticks; the mirror touch is so convenient! :)

    2. LA Colors is available in PURE Beauty Serendra, BGC. :)

  11. nice blog
