Hello bhellas! More and more makeup brands are flooding the Philippines, and this time we have an exciting announcement for you: Gorgeous Cosmetics is now in the Philippines! They have opened their first store in Eastwood Mall on December 2, and to make it official they've hosted a press event on December 18 at the Belmonte Room of Eastwood Richmonde Hotel in Eastwood City.

Gorgeous Cosmetics has a large collection of products and is every makeup lover's heaven.
Here I am at the entrance to the Belmonte Room. On the right side is the reception area (obscured by the pillar).

GC is now in the Philippines!!!

The presentation kicked off around 4.30 pm with introduction by Ms. Michelle and presentation by Ms. Ace Bernardo (former Brand Manager of Makeup For Ever Philippines and currently Managing Director of Gorgeous Cosmetics PH under the Orangebox Corporation). Their story with this brand is that they wanted to bring in a fresh experience for makeup enthusiasts as well as professionals because they saw that this product really works well with Asian skin and under the unforgiving humidity of the Philippine climate. They added that this premium brand has professional quality, and yet reachable by regular consumers like us because they are easy to work with and are buildable.

Ms. Michelle introduces us to their story with the brand
and why they believed Gorgeous Cosmetics would be a hit in the Philippines.
After the introduction, Ms Ace Bernardo facilitated the presentation and introduced us to Gorgeous Cosmetics brand.

Orangebox, one of the first beauty boxes to open here in the Philippines -- is the exclusive distributor of Gorgeous Cosmetics. Aside from their first branch in Eastwood Mall, Gorgeous Cosmetics also has plans to expand in 2014 on premium malls like SM MOA. Timeframe is tentative but there should be at least one new branch to open around the first quarter of 2014. Aren't you guys excited? =)

Gorgeous Cosmetics stores have a 1950s inspired theme and a glamorous appeal that gives their visiting customers a red carpet treatment. This brand is also raved about by makeup professionals because of its superior pigmentation, easy to blend and build, suitable for sensitive skin, and has healing ingredients to make the skin glow.

Their concept is to give customers a red-carpet feel once they walk into Gorgeous Cosmetics stores.

Philippine customers will be thrilled with their customized offering: they have in-store makeup services, events and sponsorship, and workshops for makeup and lash extension. When you walk into the store, you know you're in good hands because all of their staff are well-trained makeup artists called the Gorgeous Elite Team.

Base Perfect Liquid Foundation (2Y-BP)

"Oil free and long lasting, this silky foundation delivers flawless results for a perfect complexion. The smooth, oil free emulsion blends effortlessly onto the skin. Special light diffusing pigments amplify the light, giving skin the appearance of a healthy luminosity. Contains Vitamins A and E to soothe and condition the skin. Medium to full coverage, suitable for all skin types."

With Gorgeous Cosmetics, you can easily find your perfect match using their intuitive shade system as your guide. Your skin type falls into one of these undertones: NB (Neutral Beige), B (Beige), N (Neutral), Y (Yellow), D (Dark). Once you find your undertone, the next step is to find your color depth match: #1 being the lightest and #5 the deepest shade.

Lipstick (Jelly Bean)

"Our Lipsticks are fine in texture and feel luxuriously soft and light-weight on lips. Remarkably high colour pigment content, means that colour lasts reliably for hours without touch-ups. Enriched with emollients, for nourishing your sophisticated, glamorous lips."

Gorgeous Cosmetics has a whopping 30 shades of lipstick colors to suit each individual's taste, plus an irresistible milk chocolate scent to make the experience even more memorable. I'm already using this lipstick and it's very long wearing as well as meal-proof. I was really astonished at how vibrant the lipstick was even after a meal... no need for retouch!

Price: P1,000.00
Scent: Milk Chocolate

Liquid Lips (Frosted)

"Liquid Lips promises incredible, long lasting, super-high shine and gloss."

I think the difference between this Liquid Lips from their Lip Gloss ones is that this the Liquid Lips is super high shine and gloss. It's perfect for those with dry lips, and those who prefer a subtle coloration. It does not have a scent or aftertaste. If I'm not mistaken, I saw 20 shades in their store.

Price: P900.00 (Same price with Gorgeous Cosmetics Lip Gloss)
Scent: None
Made in USA

Madam Lash Eyelashes (Miss Naughty + Twiggies)

Miss Naughty: "Gradually get thicker and longer towards the ends, which creates a great amount of length fullness and glamour, subtle and perfect for a natural look." Twiggies: "A fun and quirky lash, this is definitely one of our favourites."

Each set of eyelashes can be used up to 10 times, with SRP of around P600+ and inclusive of high quality glue. GC currently has an ongoing promo for the month of December and you can buy a set of 6 for only P1,200 (if you purchase them individually, the total value would cost you P3,960).

Eyelash Curler

"Safely and gently curl your lashes, with a quick and simple squeeze. Padded grips firmly catch each lash at the base. The smooth operating curler snugly fits the eye, without pinching or catching lashes."
