Sugar High

20 September 2012


Cosmetic brands have been upping the ante with special themed makeup collections packaged in irresistible designs. Here are some delectable ones that's on our wish list:

Shu Uemura

Packaged in a delectable chocolate-hued case, Shu Uemura's latest concoctions come in a set of six eye shadow palettes that are reminiscent of luxurious flavored chocolates. It comes with two colorful glitter accents, light tone for highlight, light or mid-brown for base, dark brown for contours, and matte dark brown shadows for lining the eyes. Another great news? The case is refillable so you can keep it and store your other favorite eye shadows in it!

Shu Uemura International Artistic Director Kakayasu Uchiide definitely knows the way to a woman's heart as he shares that "This season, it is a song that cheers women through her daily struggles and gives her hope. When she overcomes difficulty, and achieves something, she rewards herself, for example, with the finest chocolates. The sweetness of a sense of accomplishment becomes to new vitality for tomorrow. I expressed this uplifting feeling in my make-up for this collection."

Benefit

Every beauty girl knows that benefit has one of the best lip & cheek stain products. And now, it comes in a delicious kit. For only P1,500, you get four beauty tools-benetint (rose-tinted lip & cheek stain), high beam (luminescent complexion enhancer), sugarbomb ("sugar rush flush" face powder) and ultra plush (sugarbomb lip gloss). How's that for a sweet deal?

Juice Beauty

Whose eyes wouldn't light up upon hearing the brand's name? Deriving from its core innovation of organic juice-based skin care, Juice Beauty has now ventured into cosmetics with their Colorcare line. Their initial batch of beauty products include Complexion, Lip, Cheek and Eye color products. Another plus is that all their ingredients are from USDA Certified organic farms, and they use recycled cartons and soy ink. Plus, they use solar power to manufacture most of their products. How's that for being beautiful and earth-friendly?
