Philippines meets NEW European Makeup Brands!

Just a few months ago, Essence Cosmetics was launched here in the Philippines which is a European drugstore brand that carries good quality but affordable products. Then a week ago, a number of beauty bloggers and beauty vloggers were invited by Color Society Philippines (an auxiliary of Bhagis International Trading Corporation) over for a luncheon at Manila Polo Club for the launch of 5 of Europe's top cosmetic brands! I've already mentioned Essence. Other than that, we also have Flormar, which is already available here in the Philippines. Then there's GOSH Cosmetics, which I'm sure you've already seen from foreign Youtube beauty gurus, Deborah Milano and Misslyn.

     Well, I learned about Essence through reading The Beauty Junkee blog and also from Ana Patricia of anavictorin0 (Youtube guru) a couple of months ago, I think. Essence is Europe's best-selling cosmetics brand in the low-price segment. It is made in Germany and it's the number 1 in 10 European countries! Essence is now starting to bloom in the Philippine market since their products have awesome quality - not to mention their very affordable price range! Believe me! I've already tried a couple of their products and I am really impressed!

     Now, here's another interesting cosmetic brand. I have also tried one of Flormar's products, which is their Pretty Compact powder and the reason why I purchased that is because of the very silky texture of the powder. I was told that Flormar is a Turkish brand but it is actually established in Milan, Italy. They've been in the industry for over four decades already and is recognized as one of the favorite cosmetics brands in Europe! I think they're famous for their lipsticks! Can't wait to try their other products!

     Another cosmetic brand that is made in Germany. Misslyn has cool, stylish design which appeals to young, trend-conscious consumers. They update their fashionable color collections every six weeks so they can adapt to the new trends. They produce high-quality products that will not leave a hole in your pocket! Misslyn is actually known for eye-styling and nail-styling concept. Trivia: Misslyn is coined from the name of one of the most influential icons in the world, THE Marilyn Monroe. :)

     Italy's number 1 cosmetic brand, Deborah Milano has been in the industry for over half a century in over 60 countries! The brand embodies Italian excellence in cosmetic which caters most to women's needs. Deborah Milano offers creativity, beauty, passion, and attention to detail and superb taste!

     Last but not the least, we have GOSH Cosmetics which is a Danish-based hip and trendy cosmetics, bath and body, and fragrance company. It has been in the industry for over 25 years and is currently selling in over 66 countries throughout the world. GOSH cosmetics is a color cosmetic line that offers mascaras and eyeliners with iridescent effects with shine, shimmer, and dazzle! Their mission is to create top quality products that can satisfy the needs of their customers. GOSH Cosmetics is now available in SM Aura, FYI. :)

Here are a few of the products from the 5 featured brands that I'd love to try! Mostly GOSH cosmetics!

The launch was a fun-filled day! It's nice to be around fellow beauty YouTube gurus and beauty bloggers at the same time. Too bad, I don't have a copy of our group photo! Oh well, here's me with Shen of Shen's Addiction and Martha of The Beauty Junkee.

Color Society Philippines team :)

Oh! Color Society also had a raffle of two LED TVs and Noe of COLORismyweapon and I won! Haha! Imagine the reactions of our families when we got home with new television! Haha! Especially Noe who had to fly back to Cebu that day!

Each of the bloggers received a box full of goodies! Most of the products in my box are from Essence and then I received a lip gloss from GOSH! :) Thank you, Color Society Philippines!

Just a heads up, you'll be seeing a lot of Essence product reviews here in my blog soon! Haha! :)

Stay awesome and accomplish your mission! :)
