The gift of beauty

The gift of beauty

THE HOLIDAY season is truly upon us, and we’d really like its accompanying ups and downs to not leave a mark on our faces for the coming new year. Why don’t we all treat ourselves a little bit this Christmas, and look really good for all the holiday photos?

Italian beauty brand Kiko Milano, rumored to be perfect dupes for more expensive European brands, is showing off their Holiday Premiere collection. These stocking-stuffers have customers covered from skincare to makeup.

We can all start with the Hydra Face Serum (P1,650) with moisturizing and brightening effects. To create a flawless canvas for the skin, we recommend the accompanying primer (P1,400), all topped off with the 24H Lasting Foundation (P1,850). Highlight all you want with the eyeshadow palettes (in Made to Shine and Dreamy; both at P1,600); the Liquid Face Highlighter (P1,050); and the Iconic Masterpiece Blush (P1,500). Finish off with the Volume & Curl mascara at P1,250. They even have a scent, called Golden Eau de Parfum (P2,400).

The Holiday Premiere collection is inspired by Italian theaters, so you know you’re about to make an entrance.

Kiko Milano is available at SM Mall of Asia, SM Megamall, SM Grand Central, SM San Lazaro, SM North EDSA, SM City Clark, SM Department Store Cebu, SM Department Store Davao, SM Department Store Megamall and online on Lazada, Shopee, and Zalora.

Neutrogena is taking care of all the holiday stress with the Hydro Boost Serum and Water Gel. These are enriched with hyaluronic acid and other dermatologist-recommended ingredients. The Hydro Boost Water Gel claims to give the skin five times more hydration (compared to not using moisturizer at all), and the serum only adds to the fun.

Neutrogena products are available in leading stores and Shopee and Lazada. — JLG
