The Beauty Beat: The Metro's Latest Beauty Drops

Here are two new ways to pamper yourself silly, a Vitamin C line for sensitive skin, and a local brand that's going global!

QUICKFX just introduced their new innovative Vitamin C line for sensitive skin

Beauty and wellness brand QuickFx launched their newest skin innovation with the Sen-C Bright line. The collection is designed to be powerful enough to address hyperpigmentation and for overall skin brightening but also gentle enough to be suitable for everyday use and even for those who have sensitive skin. The line includes three products: the Sen-C Bright Micellar Water (P299), Sen-C Bright Day Serum Cream (P299), and Sen-C Bright Overnight Serum (P549). The Sen-C Bright collection is available at Watsons.




Colourette Cosmetics secures regional funding of USD 2 million

Colourette recently held a media launch to announce some big news: a staggering 2 million dollar investment for the beauty brand. Colourette CEO and founder Nina Ellaine Dizon and recently appointed Chief Operating Officer Stephanie Tanjuatco were both present for the historic day to share the good news and give insight to the brand’s future. The gathering was held at Buttery & Co. in Katipunan and hosted by one of the most notable figures in media and publishing, Myrza Sison. 


The remarkable milestone is not only good for the brand but for the local beauty scene as it was shared that this investment marks the first time an independent local makeup brand has achieved this feat– no doubt paving the way for other independent local makeup brands as well. The investment comes from DSG Consumer Partners, Foxmont Capital Partners, and notable angel investors. Foxmont Capital Partners was Colourette's first investor in 2022 and has joined this round again.


With this newfound influx in funds, fans of the brand (or Loucarettes as Colourette likes to call them!) can expect more product innovations, new launches, bigger beauty events, more interactive social media campaigns, and exciting collaborations in the coming months.

Ayumi launches new LED lash service

Ayumi Art and Beauty Studios just added a new service to their roster–a treatment they’re calling “the future of lash extensions”! The Luminous LED Lashes is an innovative lash technique that utilizes LED light technology and uses a special glue to stick the extensions to your lashes. Due to the curing technique that’s used, the bond is stronger, resulting in longer lash retention. While the technique itself is not a new one, the service is a rare one in the country as extensive training is needed to do it properly!


The brand recommends this service for people with allergies or sensitive eyes as it promises to reduce fumes from regular lash glue so it’s a more comfortable experience than regular lash extensions. Visit an Ayumi branch near you to try their new LED lash extensions! You can also check their other services at @ayumi.eyelash.
