If there’s one makeup mantra you’ve heard a thousand times, it’s likely to go for a statement lip.
As the first to launch International Lipstick Day in the Philippines last July 29, The SM Store’s Beauty Section celebrated it in a big way with a gathering of stylish lippie lovers at SM Makati.
The SM launch was a ‘beauty-full’ event hosted by Miss Philippines Water 2012, Samantha Purvor; and graced by three other beauty queens – Venus Raj, Shamcey Supsup, and Ariella Arida. They shared their different lip tips and personal stories to encourage ladies to feel more confident in exploring the world of lipstick.
Venus shared how it’s important to know one’s “undertone color” to perfectly match with the right lip color. Shamcey on the other hand, says that lip moisturizing is a must because, “using too much lipstick can lead to dry lips, which is why it is important that you exfoliate and moisturize.”
Ariella gave tips on picking the right lip color that should always go with one’s “day or night looks.”
“We join make-up fans all over the world on International Lipstick Day,” says May Abarquez, Watsons & SM Beauty’s Beauty Trading Controller. “I know Filipinas are big fans of lipstick, and we’ve made the celebration more fun for them.”
With that, top brands like Happy Skin, Shiseido, L’Oreal, Revlon, Maxfactor, NYX, Maybelline, The Body Shop, BYS and others are offering lip makeup services and discounts up to 50% until August 26. SM Makati shoppers can also get the latest trends in lip color from luxury brands like Dior, MAC, Clinique and Shu Uemura. Complete your look with other lip care products and must haves like lip balm, liners, and glosses.
The Lipstick Festival is ongoing until August 26 at the Beauty Section of all SM Stores .
