FAVE 5: Swatcheroo | Clozette

There's a new Instagram game in the beauty community and that's artistic swatches. Instead of just swiping the shades on their forearm, makeup enthusiasts are taking it to the next level by drawing cute sketches using eyeshadows, lipsticks, eyeliner among other cosmetics. If you're planning to give it a spin, here are some creative inspirations from the Clozette Community that you can refer to.

In time for the re-opening of their chicer and sleeker branch at SM Megamall, Bobbi Brown Philippines also relaunched their global bestselling collection, the House of Luxe Lip Colour. Re-introducing the old favourites Luxe Matte Lipstick and Luxe Liquid Lip Colour in two new formulas, there are now luxurious lipsticks in three standout finishes from the brand. There's the Luxe Lip Matte Lipstick that gives amazing pigment and smooth-as-silk application and comes with 18 shades; the Luxe Lip Liquid High Shine that comes in nine shades and features 3-D light-refracting pigments injected with moisture spheres for a lush and plump-lipped look; and the Luxe Lip Velvet Matte that also comes in nine shades and has a velvet-soft formula with a long-lasting matte finish. All shades promise to deliver true pigment power and comfortable wear in one.

Now, whether you love the classic products in the line or you're just excited to try out the new ones in the collection, heading to Bobbi Brown to treat yourself — just in time for the holidays, may we add —  to enjoy a Luxe Lip experience is a good idea. Get your (or a giftee's) lipstick from the Luxe Lip line engraved with a name or a word during one of their engraving activities.  You can catch them for a limited time in select branches, following the schedule below. 

Plus, you can also score a Bobbi Brown Luxe pouch for every PHP3,500 minimum purchase inclusive of a Luxe Lip item. Talk about spoiling yourself for the festive season, right?

Up your beauty stash to the luxe level and explore the myriad of shades and finishes of the House of Luxe Lip Colour Collection for only PHP 1,850 each, available in all Bobbi Brown counters in the Philippines. 


The worlds of fashion and beauty are always abundant with fun happenings. Case in point: these tidbits we gathered. Here's your weekly dose of news.

Beyonce to buy out her brand?

As you may know, Beyonce has an athleisure brand created in partnership with Topshop called Ivy Park. But since Topshop hotshot Philip Green has been embroiled in a harassment case, there have been rumours that Beyonce is buying out her brand from the British company. No confirmation yet, but we're holding our breath for a resolution.

Blending makeup with a pancake?

Just when we thought we've seen it all — from cellphones to that part of a man's body — here comes another material used for makeup blending that just isn't right. Riverdale actress Camila Mendes was caught on video using... wait for it... a pancake — we're serious! — to blend her foundation in between takes. Well, it goes without saying that we will not try this trend but we assume that the sponge-like texture of the pancake does make for a good blender substitute.

Weed you try this?

Cannabis has been used for skincare and haircare products before, and more recently for mascara. But now we're moving on to colour makeup as Melt Cosmetics has just unveiled its Smoke Sessions Collection. And yes, the products in the line, which include an eyeshadow palette and a few lipsticks, are infused with weed. 

Cardi B x Fashion Nova

Cardi B has released her much-awaited collaboration with Fashion Nova over the weekend. The bad news is it's already sold out. Inspired by her favourite fashion designers, the clothes are meant to be affordable versions of what you may see on runway shows.
