The Teviant Lip Spell Collection Was Made For Empowered Women Of Today
Choose from 10 powerful hues to suit every event, mood, and personality!
Ah, the power of lipstick!
The seemingly mundane tube of color in every woman's purse can have transformative, and even confidence-boosting qualities, if you come to think about it. Why do people wear makeup? Yes, it is used to make sure you are presentable to the public eye, but in reality, the makeup we choose to wear says a lot about who we are, in the same way clothes do.
The dress or shoes we opt for at the beginning of the day serves a purpose, just the same way choosing to don eyeshadow or blush does. In the case of lipstick, it's that tiny tool in a woman's kit that can change not just the way she looks, but how she ultimately feels.
Going for a warm nude shade to feel laid-back and fuss-free today? How about a fiery red to feel in control? Why not? Whatever lip shade it is you decide on means something—either a confidence or mood boost, or a feeling of empowerment to do whatever it is you need to conquer for the day.
One such collection that celebrates the empowered woman in all her uniqueness and authenticity is the Teviant Lip Spell line of lipsticks—10 shades of quality-driven, expertly-curated hues for a multitude of skin tones.
In Albert Kurniawan's own words, "with this collection, we hope to bring back that feeling of empowerment for women. Because nowadays, they tend to just go for whatever the trendy lip color is, whatever is uso. They tend to forget that lipstick is meant to enhance their beauty and take care of their lips." And empowered they will be with Lip Spell—with 10 carefully thought out shades to fit every mood, every skin tone, and every empowered woman of today, who makes her own choices—including what lip color she likes.
No trendy formulas here, no staying longer on your lips than they actually need to—just well-researched, long-wearing, lightweight lipstick with supercharged pigments enough to bring life to your lips with just a few swipes. Their original, revolutionary formula is all about infusing key ingredients to give you your best lip experience yet. Made with licorice root extract known for its healing and transformative properties on the skin, this hero ingredient boosts collagen production, and gives off a lip-blurring effect for a fuller pout. Also infused with sunflower oil known for its moisturizing properties, every swipe promises an unbeatable matte finish that keeps your lips plump and hydrated, never chappy.
This collection's awesomeness doesn't end there! Teviant collaborated with a group of empowered, self-made, accomplished women in the industry today—Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach, Miss Universe Philippines 3rd runner up Ariella Arida, Celebrity Stylist and METRO Executive Editor Kat Cruz-Villanueva, Celebrity Stylist and sister duo Kim and Boop Yap, Celebrity Makeup Artist Anthea Bueno, and Fashion and Lifestyle Blogger Kryz Uy. Each of them came up with their own original lip shade, as it symbolizes their unique story of women empowerment.
Ahead, a run down of the 10 covetable shades to stock your vanity kit with. What's your favorite Lip Spell?
CLAIM TO FAME
First on Pia Wurtzbach's range of hues for this collaboration is 'Claim to Fame', a sugar coral with pink undertone that she created to encourage women to embrace their individuality, never being afraid to do the unexpected.
'Elizabeth', a sandy nude with peach undertones, was inspired by Celebrity Makeup Artist Anthea Bueno's mother. The warmth in this nude hue was made to fit the Filipina look, and is a reminder of her journey to success, as she looks back at her modest beginnings of being a working student.
Beauty Queen and TV Host Ariella Arida recounts her humble beginnings as 'Binibining 41', and the path that led her to where she is right now. Teviant Lip Spell 'Forty One' is a Mid-tone Burnt Coral that looks amazing on Filipina Morena skin and beyond.
Celebrity Stylist and METRO Executive Editor Kat Cruz-Villanueva commands authority in 'Haute', a fiery paprika red, perfectly suited for powerful women like herself. Hailing from an era when styling was not yet considered a real job, Kat conquered the years, and gained not just experience, but confidence as well.
Celebrity stylists and sister duo Kim and Boop Yap named their lip color the 'Ley', after their late mom, the glue that holds them together. A dusty light pink, the 'Ley' is a great daily lip pick for conquering your day to night!
This cool-toned mauve with a hint of pink is for adventurous days, and was co-created by Pia Wurtzbach to represent the beauty queen's star sign. It's the perfect balance of feminine and edgy!
An antique rose shade by Pia Wurtzbach, the 'Maktub' symbolizes destiny. An Arabic word that literally translates to 'it is written' or 'destiny', this word was repeated several times in The Alchemist by Paulo Coehlo, a book she read a lot before competing in Miss Universe. She aptly called this shade that, as this collection felt a lot like it was written in the stars, a true 'Maktub' moment.
This warm toasted peach shade is a fun addition to Pia's five shades, as her supporters lovingly call her 'Queen P'. Queen Peach is a flattering, fun, daily shade made for those who aren't afraid to have a little bit of fun now and then!
Fashion and lifestyle blogger Kryz Uy tells us about how she beat experiences of bullying, and accomplishes her dreams—learning how to get over what others say about her, so she can live her best, authentic life! 'Sunday Kiss', a nude honey hazelnut hue is her pick for flattering your look in a natural way.
Last but not least in Pia's five hues for this collection is 'Titleholder', a hue that is very similar with the one she wore to the big Miss Universe win. She fondly shares how she had to mix a lot of different colors to achieve that lip color back then, and now, the 'Titleholder' hue achieved that exact color in one bullet. It's a mid-tone nude with pink undertone.
