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.
