We're all in major holiday mode, heading out to all the Christmas parties and reunions with loved ones almost every night of the week. We've gotta admit that sometimes, we run out of ideas for our looks, so we end up with our boring old 'do, our same old lipstick, and that trusty LBD. If you're looking at shaking things up a bit, read on and check out these hardworking beauty finds meant for the busy gal who wants to look her best this season! Happy weekend shopping!


Simple Sheet Masks

Sometimes we wish the world of skincare were just… simple! With so much available product out in the market today—creams, serums, masks, and oils galore, one can easily get confused about what really is needed to achieve healthy skin. Simple makes it way more uncomplicated by removing all the “baddies” and retaining just the “goodies” you need.

Best known for their Micellar Cleansing Water, Micellar Cleansing Facial Wipes, and Moisturizing Facial Wash, Simple now brings us a busy season essential—Simple Sheet Masks! Three variants (Kind to Skin Rich Moisture Sheet Mask, Kind to Skin De-Stress Sheet Mask, and Kind to Skin Pollution Protect Sheet Mask) are available for busy women on-the-go, to make sure all her needs are met as she hops from one soirée to another! At Watsons

Editor’s Note: Simple is not just a bathroom staple—it’s something you should opt to bring wherever you go for a quick refresher!


Happy Skin Easy Glam Multi Use Mousse Makeup Eyes+Cheeks+Lips

Speaking of efficiency, we love Happy Skin’s newest offering for women who waste no time on too many products, but want to look A+ all the time! Especially perfect for the busy holidays, this genius product allows you to create a complete glowing look in just 1-2-3!

It features a formula that has a bouncy texture, allowing you to glam up minus the hassle of bringing out a dozen different products. Yes, it’s easy to achieve that look you want without going overboard! Put it on your eyes, lips, and cheeks, and voila! You're set! Get it in either “Rosy”, a pink nude shade, or “Coral”, a terracotta nude that lends a natural flush! At Power Plant Mall

Editor’s Note: I simply love the simple yet glam packaging of this new product—it’s something you want to take out during a dinner and touch-up right then and there! Not to mention the two shades that are flattering for a wide range of skin tones!


Estée Lauder Beautiful Belle Perfume

Nothing upgrades your overall 'look' like a new fragrance can! Sure, a perfume we've been fond of for years can be considered our signature scent, but why not shake things up a bit by arriving at your reunions a renewed person complete with a brand new fragrance to boot?

This month, we've fallen in love with Estée Lauder's "Beautiful Belle", one that was originally from the year 1985. The reboot features a fresh feminine scent that lends notes of lychee, rose petals, and mimosa. Surely a fragrance that evokes romance and outright femininity, Beautiful Belle urges you to love deeply, break rules, and commit to forever! At Rustan's

Editor’s Note: Brides in particular would fall for this fragrance, a sure shoo-in for their Big Day! And did we forget to mention that stunning bottle that's equal parts perfect and disheveled at the same time?


Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara

Ever get scared of someone’s lashes when they look too stiff and fake? We’re not even talking about plastic falsies here. We’re talking about mascaras with formulas that make eyelashes look too hard. Thank God for Maybeline’s new “Total Temptation” line that boasts of natural-looking, soft, and full lashes!

Just a few swipes of this groundbreaking formula lengthens and volumizes lashes making them look au naturel! The secret lies in the coco butter extract infusion, which gives it its creamy mousse-like consistency. Not to mention it smells delicious! It’s available in Millennial Pink packaging for a washable formula, and Baby Blue for the waterproof variant! At SM Beauty

Editor’s Note: I love a new mascara discovery! As if I’m not satisfied with my other Maybelline mascaras yet, another amazing one comes along! I’m not complaining though! Coconut is known to nourish skin and hair, so that’s a definite plus!


Covergirl Trublend Base Business Primers

We don’t think we can ever emphasize enough the importance of applying a primer on your face, and on your eyes before putting on any other product. This makes sure you have the perfect base, to help your makeup last way longer than usual.

Covergirl brings us its newest range of primers dubbed “Base Business”, four formulas that promotes a perfect canvas. These make your makeup long lasting, flawless all day long! There’s White for skin smoothing, Green for neutralizing any discolorations, Purple for pore minimizing, and Peach for illumination! At SM Beauty

Editor’s Note: I don’t think I’ll need just one of these, as each and every day, a different skin concern can arise. You’ll be wise to invest in all of them, as they really won’t hurt your pocket at just P399 each!
