A Bit Late for the Holidays: The Glossier Black Tie Set

Glossier is one of the hottest new-gen, almost indie, makeup brands that has been well loved and welcomed by the Instagram-generation beauty fans. Pre-social media, brands like them wouldn’t have a real chance in the beauty market but here we are–a middle-aged Filipino talking about a US-exclusive beauty brand, oh the power of social media! … Continue reading

Lipstick P/Review: Guerlain Rouge G L’Extrait in Orgueil

Whew, did that title twist your tongue or what?! The Guerlain Rouge G L’Extrait is a semi-new line of lipsticks which apply like gloss yet set like lipstick. ‘Semi-new’ because with the proliferation of liquid lipsticks in the market now, this form of lip product doesn’t surprise any more. But when launched in 2012, this … Continue reading
