Insider Roundup: Stunna Lip Paint & More | Clozette
We’re feeling the vibe of this Friday. It’s still busy as ever, and there are lots of new things to discover. Here are just some of the fun new things we’ve learned.

It’s a stunna



After the frenzy over the release of the foundations, match stix and gloss, as well as the galaxy collection, Rihanna is set to make her fans go gaga again. The singer’s cosmetics line, Fenty Beauty, will release a matte lip paint on 23 November, and it’s definitely a stunna (as its name implies).

The biggest optical shop in the PH




OWNDAYS has opened their biggest store so far, and it’s in the Philippines. The 280 square metre space houses 1,500 frame styles. It has an open module system, allowing customers to try on the frames before they have one made. The store is located on the third floor of SM Megamall Fashion Hall.

Although 11.11 is  Singles' Day, everyone, even the currently attached ones can celebrate it. Think of it as a day to pamper and treat yourself to some awesome shopping discounts and other great deals. Or you can designate the day to have some major bonding time with your squad.


We surveyed some of our Clozetter Ambassadors and Star Clozetters on how they'll celebrate the day and here are the results.


Get Together With Friends

Gather your friends and bond over some fun activities. Depending on the interests of your squad, you can stay at home and marathon your favourite TV series. Or if your friends are up for some outdoor adventure, you can arrange a quick trip to the beach or go hiking. Clozette Ambassador Anna Patrish says, "I'll celebrate Singles' day with my girlfriends by going to cafes, the movies, and shopping."


Pampering Time

Get your hair done, schedule a body massage and more. Go ahead and pamper yourself from head to toe with some luxurious services this Saturday. Meanwhile, pampering yourself can also mean giving time to things that you love doing. Star Clozetter Hannah Dacanay says she'll spend time pampering herself by doing the things she loves such as drawing, blogging and a "little bit of shopping."

Eyebrows have taken a precedence over our beauty goals. Yes, they’re important. But may we direct your attention to something that also gives a distinct difference in the way we look: eyelashes. They open up our eyes and make our peepers the centre of attention.

With that said, we acknowledge how there are so many different ways to make your lashes look lush and long. You can get extensions or use false eyelashes, but then again, you can also go the easiest route and put on mascara. There are a ton of mascaras in the market, and so it might get a little bit confusing which one to pick up. Fret not, here are some options for you.

For short lashes

Lacking in length in the lash department? Go for mascaras the provide ample lengthening power but don’t make your lashes resemble spider legs. If you have the money to splurge, go for the Lancome Grandiose Wide-Angle Fan mascara. It makes your lashes look like you have extensions on. If you’re a bit tight on the budget, The Maybelline Falsies Push Up Drama Angel mascara is similar in performance but not in the price as the Lancome one.

For thin lashes

Give your lashes a bit of oomph. Make them look thicker and lusher. With a couple of swipes, the Urban Decay Cosmetics Perversion mascara gives you that. But if you’re looking for a more affordable option, the Jordana Cosmetics Best Lash Extreme mascara is the route to tread. It gives your lashes volume like no other. And can we just say how similar these two are not just in terms of their performance but also their packaging?


For lashes that are hardly there

Some of us are gifted with amazing lashes while some of us aren’t. It’s just the way life works. But it doesn’t mean you’d stop at that, though. You can definitely make your lashes look longer and fuller still. It’s a holy grail for many, and we can see why. The Benefit They’re Real mascara is great for giving your lashes more length and volume. If you’re more of a drugstore girl, the Maybelline Falsies mascara is said to deliver the same effect for a fraction of the price.

For lashes that won’t curl up

Can’t stand lashes that can’t curl? Neither can we. So we scouted for the best solution and found that the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara is great at lengthening, volumising and curling the lashes with just one coat. A great dupe for the mentioned bestselling mascara is the L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise mascara, which promises to take your lashes to paradise by giving it drama like you’ve never seen before.


For sensitive eyes

We can’t sacrifice our eyes no matter what our beauty goals are, of course. So here are options for our girls who have quite sensitive eyes. You won’t be scratching or be in pain with these, we promise. The Tarte Gifted Amazonian Clay mascara is a good option because its ingredients are vegan and they’re also made with nourishing ingredients that care for the lashes. A drugstore option is the Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin mascara. The product is all-natural. Plus, the packaging is recyclable, too.
