Ofra expands NikkieTutorials Collection

OFRA is releasing Glow Baby, Glow! an extension to the original OFRA x NikkieTutorials collection. An important part of the original collaboration was creating a shade range that was inclusive of all skin tones. After listening to our customers and Nikkie’s fans, we’ve tweaked the deepest shade in the Everglow highlighter to have a more natural undertone that perfectly compliments deep skin tones, and added a universally flattering liquid lipstick to the collection.

Bringing OFRA fans and Nikkie followers a glow worthy of the Glow Queen herself, this new collection divides each shade of the Everglow highlighter wheel into three full sized individual compacts. You can now get your perfect shade in a full sized pan in our stylish and sleek new packaging. These new compacts are magnetic so as you begin to run out of the product you can easily pop out the old pan using a small tool, even a bobby pin, to fit in the hole in the back of the compact to pop it out. Your old pans can now be replaced with a new magnetic godet pan refill that will be available on our website.
In addition to the three highlighters, OFRA x NikkieTutorials is releasing a new Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick, Dutchess.

Packing Light: 7 No-Frills Beach Essentials

By Viella Galvez-Cui

When I was booking tickets to Bali for my friend and her fiancé’s joint stag/hen party, I knew we would only get to see and do so much because we were such a huge group, so I decided to pack light and only bring a 7kg carry-on luggage.

I’m not the type to bring a ton of makeup, especially on a beach trip, but there are definitely some things that I can’t live without, like after-sun skincare products. Since we were guaranteed to be drinking many times over the weekend, I wanted to bring things that could multitask so I can bring less and save space.

After many bouts of packing and re-packing, here are the 7 items I brought with me to Bali:

1) Dewytree Green Power Aloe Soothing Gel

Damage control for an accidental lobster tan (i.e. for when you day-drink so much you end up passing out under the sun)!

2) Pixi by Petra Vitamin Wakeup Mist

A moisturizing toner, ready to spray anytime I need a refresher outside of our villa (i.e. when you head out for an after lunch drink-and-dip).

3) Pixi by Petra Multibalm in Sheer Sculpt

I swipe this multibalm under cheekbones, sides of the face and nose, and under the jaw to make it look like I’ve had some sun, even on a gloomy day.

Inside Judy’s Pixi Shopping Cart

Last October 4, 2017, the Glamourbox team met up with one of the sweetest mom/beauty vloggers, Judy Travis of popular ItsJudyTime for a quick shopping spree in SM Makati beauty section. We were lucky to spend some time with her and talk about makeup, skincare, her cute kids as well as her her trip in the Philppines!

Are you curious to see what’s inside her Pixi shopping cart? 😉

Here are her top 5 Pixi-pretty picks:

1. Get The Look – ItsLipTime (Limited Edition Signed Palettes) – Php 1495.00

Judy, in collaboration with Pixi by Petra, created this versatile palette that has a gorgeous mix of nudes, reds, and berry colors that’s perfect for day to night looks! She shared that she loved to mix up the colors to create an ombre effect and to create customized colors. The smooth and soft formula allows the colors to blend seamlessly together on the lips (and even on the cheeks!).

Quick tip: Judy loves to mix Kiera Bear, Julianna Bear and Miya Bear all together. She also uses the Pixi Bare Buff Lip Liner to layer the colors.

2. Pixi Glow-y Powder in Rome Rose – Php 1,040.00

This natural mineral powder adds color and instantly gives you that luminous glow! Judy adores how this product gives her a pretty and youthful finish. This product is another special collaboration between Pixi by Petra and lifestyle blogger Aspyn Ovard.

3. Pixi Glow Mud Cleanser – Php 1,150.00

Remove the dirt, grime, and left over makeup off your face with this powerful deep pore mud cleanser without stripping your skin of moisture! It’s Judy’s current daily facial cleanser that effectively removes her makeup.

Sheet Mask Review: Dewy Tree No Sebum Deep Mask

By Viella Galvez-Cui

Korean social networking beauty site (SNS) unpa. declared the Dewy Tree No Sebum Deep Mask, a mask from Dewy Tree Skin’s Deep Mask Series, as a winner in its 2017 Beauty Review. This line of sheet masks boast of having the papain enzyme, a natural exfoliator that smoothens skin by breaking down the dead skin cells in your face.

We only want what’s best for our beloved #glambabes, so we decided to review one of these well-reviewed masks out for you.

The No Sebum Deep Mask controls sebum levels while the Oil Less Deep Mask provides ample hydration for oily skin.

I decided to give the former a try for my combination/oily skin.
