Mary Kay, one of the biggest cosmetic companies in the world, recently hosted the chic Mary Kay Birthday Pop-Up to celebrate 17 successful years of empowering women in the Philippines.

Mary Kay transformed LANAI Manila, a finely curated lifestyle space known for its exotic and refined retail finds, into a full beauty haven that showcased the brand’s rich heritage, inspiring vision, and full skincare & makeup range.

Attending the event with less makeup on! :)

They set up a private beauty booths where i got to try Mary Kay's wide range of Skin Care from their TimeWise collection, Botanical Effects to ClearProof.

What i love about their products is they are catered to different types of skin. They suggested that i should use the TimeWise Collection since 25 yrs old and up is the ideal age where you should follow an intensive skin care regimen.

As a Makeup Artist, I always say that a good skin is equivalent to good makeup. If your skin is well taken care off, the outcome of your makeup will be better too!

Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick is the first full-coverage lipstick by Mary Kay to utilize advanced gel microsphere technology for rich, stay-true color that lasts for hours – without leaving lips looking or feeling dry. With color this pure, it’s easy to saturate the entire lips, delivering a gorgeous level of color clarity. And with beautiful shades to choose from, it’s a breeze to update any look to match any mood or fit any style. Girls will surely fall in love with this lip color!

After skin prepping is the colors! Can't get enough of their Gel Semi Matte Lipsticks,
I love the sheer color perfect for everyday use. Plus it is non-drying and feels lighter on my lips. 

The blushes are nice too! I love the shimmer effect that instantly brightens your face!
Their cosmetics are all mineral made & compact for personal use :) 

And lastly to complete my look, We can customized our Tassel Earrings! Isn't' that chic? :)

Did you know that I'm an avid user of Mary kay products? My favorite is their TimeWise Matte Liquid Foundation for everyday use :) I always recommend it to my friends. 

What i love about attending events is you've got a chance to meet people, learn from them and the brand they carry :)

One of the reasons there are millions of loyal Mary Kay customers in Manila and around the world is because Mary Kay products consistently deliver the benefits women want at prices they can afford. Mary Kay’s global team of scientists uses the most advanced skin care ingredients and technology available to ensure that women get what they want.

At the Mary Kay Pop Up, guests learned more about the different skincare lines the top beauty and skincare brand offers. Available at the event were cleansers and products from the TimeWise, Botanical Effects, and Clear Proof lines, which provide skin-loving benefits that combat aging, provide oxidization, and fight acne, respectively.

The TimeWise 3-in-1 Cleanser reveals younger-looking skin because it not only cleanses, but exfoliates and freshens too. Massaged and lathered on the face in circular motions, it removes the rough surface that can make the skin look dull and less healthy. It comes in two formulas – one for normal to dry skin, and another for combination to oily skin.

The TimeWise Age-Fighting Moisturizer combines 10 hours of hydration with a patented complex designed to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It comes in the same formulas as the cleanser to be able to provide benefits for every skin type.

Botanical Effects

The Botanical Effects Cleansing Gel cleans deeply and effectively, dissolving traces of oil. It contains anti-oxidant dragon fruit extract that helps fight skin-damaging free radicals; and aloe extract, which leaves the skin feeling smooth, nourished, and clean.

The Botanical Effects Moisturizing Gel is quick-absorbing yet it moisturizes the skin for 12 hours, without leaving the skin feeling greasy. Like the Botanical Effects Cleansing Gel, it is packed with dragon fruit and aloe extract.

Clear Proof
Personal fav! :) Deep Cleansing Charcoal Mask

The Clear Proof Clarifying Cleansing Gel for Acne-Prone Skin is a lightweight cleanser that gently removes dirt, oil, and complexion-dulling impurities. Its formula rinses clean with no residue, leaving skin feeling smooth and fresh.

The Clear Proof Oil-Free Moisturizer Oil-Free Moisturizer for Acne-Prone Skin replenishes moisture and provides balanced hydration. It is lightweight, with a quick-absorbing formula that helps control excess oil, leaving skin with a beautiful matte finish.

Mary Kay also offers bold color cosmetics and fragrances. Available at the Mary Kay Pop-Up were the top beauty and skincare brand’s foundation collections: the best-selling On-the-Go Mineral Pressed Powder, well-loved because it’s handy, affordable, and won’t clog pores; the CC Cream Sunscreen SPF 15, which delivers eight (8) essential skin benefits in just one step; the TimeWise® Liquid Foundation, which comes in two finishes (i.e., Luminous-Wear and Matte-Wear) and offers age-fighting benefits; the Mineral Powder Foundation, a weightless formula that offers enough coverage with the comfort of silk powder; and the Endless Performance Crème-to-Powder Foundation, which delivers a freshly-applied and heat and humidity resistant look.

Another crowd favorite is the Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick – the brand’s first full-coverage lipstick to utilize advanced gel microsphere technology for rich, stay-true color that lasts for hours without leaving lips looking or feeling dry. It has a lightweight gel formula that glides on smoothly and cushions lips, leaving them soft and supple. The Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick is available in seven (7) shades: Always Apricot, Crushed Berry, Mauve Moment, Midnight Red, Poppy Please, Powerful Pink, and Rich Truffle.

Also available at the event was the Brow Definer Pencil. Available in two (2) shades, Brunette and Classic Blonde, the Brow Definer Pencil is long-wearing, waterproof, and strokes on smoothly.
