I am admittedly a very kikay girl… I ADORE MAKEUP. It had been my dream since NARS first came out with a palette consisting of blushes and eyeshadows to create my own… I remember how excited I was when Tom Ford had his lipsticks and eyeshadows, I loved Kat Von D’s Backstage Bambi Lipstick, I bought Urban Decay, Stila, Makeup Forever, Kevyn Aucoin, and I loved as in loved Tarte’s LipSurgence Matte Liptint - namely lucky, hope, and fiery, it was heartbreaking when I found out they’d be discontinued so I hoarded. Lastly, I have and always will be a pink lipstick girl - pink nouveau, candy yum yum, saint germain, steady going, and please me are my Mac lip color staples, not to mention twig and the viva glam Nicki Minaj pinkish melon shade. Then Kylie came along and I loved Posie K, Candy K, and Koko K plus the limited edition Smile. And finally Charlotte Tilbury and Hourglass invaded my arsenal.
Finally this will be incomplete without mentioning my Chanel and RMK obsessiom for glitter and gloss as well as waterproof eyeliner, as well as so many Japanese 24 hour waterproof eyeliners and eyebrow pencils and brow mascaras. I have often been mistaken as a reseller when in SaSa in HongKong or Donki and all the smaller Japanese beauty outlets because of the volume of mascara I purchase.
The Ever Bilena KrisLifeKit is a true passion project… I am just so blessed that Boss Deo Sy believed in my vision and was impressed with my knowledge. Thank God he humors me when I say suko na ko sa kanya kasi di sya interasado sa kwento ko when it comes to new makeup discoveries… We have gotten close over the past 6 months and kahit care bears sya with my love for Ellis Faas and he didn’t understand what I meant when I replied kalurx, we now speak the same business language.
And that is giving all of you the best products at the most reachable, value for money prices… He understood me when I said I wanted a creamy matte that had a high pigmentation level. He didn’t feel offended when I said that I hated the smell of the first set of powders they sent because I wanted something that made skin matte yet with a soft glow but with a baby fresh scent… And he went through the tedious process of 4 different attempts until we got the right shade for Happy Taupe.
Boss Deo has taught me to respect what the market wants - he really wanted a cheek and lip tint - I said I would always get an allergic reaction so how can I give my name to something that just didn’t feel right on my own skin? So they kept looking for the right roller ball formulation with the right color adherence.
And now we will roll out my matte liquid lipstick to match the creamy matte matic (Life is sold out in Beauty MNL, new stocks will hopefully arrive Monday) in the next few weeks… within the first quarter of the birth of #krislifekits we’ll have 7 shades, then by Christmas we’ll have 10 together with lipliners, blush, and powder foundation suitable for all Filipina skin tones.
I cannot thank the beauty bloggers/vloggers and influencers enough for the supportive comments… I want to give all of you a collective hug because you did something very special for me - you gave me your affirmation for something I put my kikay heart and my maarte soul into… I love my endorsements BUT because of Ever Bilena I now have a legacy of BEAUTY that will touch the lives of so many Filipinas… Sabi ko nga, naunahan ako ni Bimb kasi may Nacho Bimby, but now I have Ever Bilena KrisLifeKit and because Boss Deo Sy believed, so many more big companies are set to collaborate in developing kris #lovelovelove products…
Thank you with every beat of my grateful heart, tama ang sinabi ko, because of your patronage and BELIEF IN ME- may #love#life na ko.
