Itching to buy yourself a gift but not sure you’ve earned it? Don’t sell yourself short, babe. You don’t need a special occasion to treat yourself to something nice (though the love month is as good a reason as any). You’re a main event. Besides, presents don’t have to be expensive. It can come in the form of a pint of ice cream or a P99 makeup product.
Yes, you read that right. Makeup for P99. For her 50th birthday, multimedia star and prolific vlogger Kris Aquino has teamed up with Ever Bilena Cosmetics for a makeup blowout. ICYDK, Aquino has her own makeup line collab with Ever Bilena called Kris Life Kit. For the entire month of February, it’s offering a promo that lets you cop all its products for P99 each. (Well, nearly all. The makeup brushes aren’t included.)
Kris Life Kit prides itself on being budget-friendly. If you’re thinking, “Okay, but what about the quality?” The collection is Kris Aquino-approved (which has to count for something, right?) and you can check out the brand’s Instagram which features crowdsourced looks using its goodies.
Here’s a list of Kris Life Kit products included in the promo.
Kris matte liquid lipsticks
In 2021, we’re still on the lookout for mask-proof makeup so matte products are still our go-to. That doesn’t mean that our options are so limited that we can’t still have fun. The Kris matte liquid lipsticks come in seven buildable shades that, Aquino assures, are flattering whether you’re fair or morena.
Each liquid lipstick comes in a lightweight formula despite the intense pigments so it glides smoothly and appears soft on your lips (or your cheeks if you want to use it as a tint). Going for one of the trendy looks you see on your IG feed? Try the shades Learn, Let Go, Life or Loyal. Prefer the classics? Then, the shades Love, Lucky and Laugh might be more your style. You can even mix and match them with your holy grail products.
Kris matte matic lipsticks
Although liquid lipsticks are easy to apply, some of us still take comfort in sticking with solid lipsticks. Solid doesn’t always have to mean standard. If you’re in the mood to be a little more adventurous, consider a retractable lip crayon.
The Kris matte matic lipsticks, which come in the same seven shades as their liquid counterparts, are creamy despite having two times (according to Ever Bilena) more mattifiers than regular lippies. It’s long-lasting and adds moisture to your lips.
Kris matte lip liners
If you’re a fan of big lip looks, lip liners are a must for defining pouts. If you’re planning to cop a Kris Life Kit lippie, the Kris matte lip liners come in the collection’s seven shades so they’re the perfect choice for over-lining.
The lip liners are creamy, non-drying and self-sharpening. You don’t need to worry about wasting product or making a mess every time you sharpen it.
Kris tinted lip balms
While it’s great to have the reassurance that your lippies can moisturize, it’s best to have lip balms in your arsenal too. Just because you’re only chilling at home doesn’t mean that you should leave your lips chapped and looking lifeless.
Kris tinted lip balms come in three shades: Close To Me, Caring and Courage. On its own, it will have your lips looking extra fresh. You can also match it with a matte lippie for a soft sheen.
Kris brow liner and brow mascara
With face masks as the norm, sometimes all you really need are great brows. To achieve that, it’s not enough to color in your brows with a liner. For an even and natural look, you’ll need the help of a brow mascara.
The Kris Life Kit birthday blowout is a promo that shouldn’t be missed by the stylish AND savvy. Take your pick from these love month treats for you, your family and your friends.
