I was an avid fan of Archie Comics during my early years and amassed a great collection of single and double digests. Archie and the gang entertained different generations of my family. The love triangle between Archie, Betty and Veronica have been resolved by now but loyal Betty fans, including me, will not accept the conclusion.
Last night, March 8, 2013, MAC Philippines unveiled the Betty & Veronica collection at the Mall of Asia and we were invited to the event. We were brought back to the 50s with the event’s diner-inspired entertainment, hors d’oeuvres, drinks and, of course, the theme which is the beloved comic book Archie.
I accompanied Shabby at Rustan’s Makati today to check if Clinique had the Black Honey lip balm(?), at the same time, I was looking around for a liquid foundation that will suit my current skin color. So we were looking around other brands but when we got to the Clinique bar (is that what they’re called? Or just kiosk? stall? … uh, area? lol), I started checking out the lipsticks and balms as well. Then, I finally gave in to getting a foundation-fitting to find the right shade and kind of foundation meant for my skin type.
Browhaus has invited the Glam Love ladies last Tuesday, March 22, to introduce their most advanced and sophisticated technology. The event was held at their Serendra branch. I arrived around 15 minutes after the call time because I didn’t know where Browhaus was exactly. ^^;;; Only Joiz and I were able to go, by the way.
Thanks, Joiz, for taking the lead in posting about Hot Young Designer’s (HYD) Second Collection for Fashion Face Off 2011. To recap, the HYD designers launched their first collection last October 2011. Then last January 25, 2012, they released their second collection that caters to young professionals; who value work-life balance and have ensembles that can be worn from day to night.
Joiz has shown you Klart, Bailey, and Renan’s collection. I’m going to share with you now the collections of Marc and Jackie.
It’s been a while since we last talked about the HYD designers. Already, they have launched 2 collections–the first was last October 2011, and here’s a glimpse of what the 5 designers have created:
Last January 25, the designers have again showcased another round of ready-to-wear designs. This quarter’s collection caters to young professionals, who value work life balance. The desire is to have an ensembles that an individual can wear from day to night.
The collection consists of:
Pure Color Sensuous Rouge Lip Color in Sultry Caramel, Sensuous Nude, and Sublime Nectar
Pure Color Five Color Topaz Mosaic eyeshadow palette
Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelée in Topaz Chameleon
Pure Color Gloss in Citron Kiss
Pure Color Intense Kajal Eye Crayon in Dramatic Black and Dramatic Teal
Pure Color Nail Lacquer in Teal Topaz
I love the color of Dramatic Teal. I have read some blogs on this collection and Topaz Chameleon is getting good reviews. I think I want that. :3 Because I lack a highlighter and bronzer in my makeup stash. Topaz Chameleon makes a great of both. 😀 Citron Kiss is as tempting as the aforesaid. I have yet to see if this collection is/will be available locally.
I was curious about why they’re called bouncy and I’ve read it’s because they feel springy. I wanted to try a couple of these (I also want more blushes), but I now have second thoughts because these aren’t powder blushes. But I read they’re quite sheer, then I guess I shouldn’t worry about looking too flushed. Will be available locally, I wonder.
Which reminds me, I think my Maybelline Magnum Volume’Express just dried out.
