By Camille Santiago Published Mar 20, 2024 5:01 pm

Let's face it, in today's fast-paced world, who has time (and energy!) for elaborate beauty routines? And who wants to put a hole in their pockets on a cabinet full of products? The good news is that the beauty world has heard you.

Now is the time to discover a line-up of the latest beauty products that are all about multi-use and multi-benefits, designed for the on-the-go individual who wants maximum impact with minimal effort.

Ahead are new products that would streamline your routine and achieve that effortless glow.

Avon Eve Become

For days when you just want to smell light and fresh, spritz on the new Avon Eve Become (P1,009), a floral, fruity scent.

The scent, created by perfumer Frank Voelkl, was inspired by a butterfly’s metamorphosis. It has notes of nectary fruits such as red apple and sweet florals like Agusta Gardenia and Musk, and promises "a new experience every time you smell it."

Describing the fragrance, Voelkl shares, “It’s a captivating scent upon first smell because it releases an unforgettable yet natural gratifying sweetness that evolves with time. They bloom and grow with the wearer, which makes it come alive and feel utterly mesmerizing."

Happy Skin Lip Mallow

Happy Skin's Mallow Cafe just brought back a pandemic favorite and new shades of their best-selling tints.

In 2020, the Lip Mallow Plush Matte Lip Mousse (P599) came about the time when people wanted a more pigmented lippie that wouldn't budge under their face masks. While the lightweight air-whipped soft matte lip mousse sold hundreds of thousands, it sadly went off the shelves. Now, it has returned with its five best-selling hues: Chai Latte (mauve brown), Cinnamon (rosy brown), Fresh Brew (milky brown), Honeymoon Glow (pink rose), and Iced Coffee (warm brown).

The product contains ingredients that are moisturizing and soothing such as Coffee Arabica Seed Oil, Marshmallow Extract, and SPF 15.

Meanwhile, the Lip Mallow Plush Matte Lip Tint (P599), is a budge-proof yet nourishing soft matte lip stain that boasts up to 12 hours of comfortable wear, thanks to Hyaluronic Acid Essence Complex, Squalane, and SPF 15. It now has over 18 shades, including five new ones: Bonbon (mauve pink), Eclair (pink brown), Hazelnut (mocha brown), Macaron (natural nude), and Soufflé (mellow pink).

Teviant She Balm

Let's be real—makeup is expensive. But if the product has more benefits other than enhancing your looks, you get your money's worth. 

Case in point: this new nourishing lip balm from Teviant. The new She Balm (P595) is infused with four powerful actives that provide hydration (Soybean Glycerides, Shea Butter, Hyaluronic Acid and Castor Oil), and comes in five shades Kate (soft salmon), Miranda (sheer mauve), Nikita (spiced peach), Mrs. Tan (bubble gum pink) and For U (sheer terracotta). And unlike your ordinary lip balm, the packaging comes with a magnetic cap to keep it in place!

Naked Collagen

If you like sweet drinks, why not drink one that has added benefits for your skin? The Naked Collagen (P999/box of 12 sachets) is a powdered drink that is packed with ingredients that prevent signs of aging, rejuvenate skin, and more. 

Comes in a berry flavor, the product has White Collagen Marine Tripeptide that helps nourish and moisturize skin; the UmbrellaV Blackberry Extract which protects skin from UVA and UVA rays, along with promoting a healthy brain and gut; and Vitamin C to protect your skin barrier.


In case you haven't heard yet, Singapore-based beauty brand Dewha is in the Philippines.

Dewha is a "multi-action skincare and hybrid makeup" that aims to address a variety of skincare needs.

Those who are too lazy for a complete skincare routine would enjoy this brand's skincare-infused makeup. Imagine putting on makeup that already nourishes and cares for your skin. There's the Dewha Perfect Glow CC Cushion, a 16-hour wear cushion foundation that leaves a silky smooth glass-skin finish while protecting it from UV rays.

Their Baby Glow Bundle, a multi-action duo set that includes Intense Hydrating Essence Masks and Gold Intense Anti-Aging Daily Serum, is also a good choice for starters.

Pili Ani Cleansing Butter

Start your skincare routine right with a cleansing butter that is packed with nourishing ingredients that not only melt away dirt, makeup, and impurities but also deeply moisturize skin.

The Pili Ani Cleansing Butter + Cleansing Oil (P2,085) is formulated with Pili Butter, Pili Oil, Virgin Coconut Oil, and Alteromonas Ferment Extract and is proudly produced in the Philippines.

Pili Butter ingredient "stimulates fibroblasts to synthesize collagen and elastin to help improve skin density, elasticity, and firmness." We don't know about you, but that sounds exciting to us.
