This is the first “award” I’ve received in my blogging career that really just is about hard work through time. I have won in blogger contests and gotten into “elite blogger circles,” but all of them were technically labored. Like I knew there was a contest or a search, and then I joined, and then I advanced. This is the first award that I’ve gotten that I didn’t have to sign up for; it was the team who saw my hard work.
This one really caught me off guard. I honestly can’t help but stare at this trophy even till now as I write this because it touched me very deeply. This is really something they could have not done, and they still would have gotten all their mileage because the team really works with us closely and collaboratively. And yet they chose to do it. That’s where the difference lies.
Perhaps from now on plenty of brands will copy this and make awards of all sorts, but it’s in them that I truly saw the sincerity.
I think this perfectly captured how excited the team was. Sandy Tiu, product manager for face, talked about plenty of plans for Maybelline’s game face in 2017. I am glad I have this shot because the shots I have of all the other brand and product managers seem so serious when in fact they were so ecstatic to be sharing with us their launches and activities for Q1.
Clear Smooth All In One has been in its new packaging since at least August last year, with a new formulation that promises to be more lightweight and powerfully absorbent. So they are making sure everyone knows by getting their muse Liza to get the word out.
Bianca Sing, another face maven from Maybelline (and schoolmate lezzgo UP!!) shared something that excited almost everyone in the room. You’ve surely seen the Master Strobing collection in the US, and finally it’s coming here this March!!! They will bring in their strobing cream and strobing stick in 2 shades (nude and pink). The best part of all? The collection is HG worthy. I’ve done my roadtest and I am sooo proud to be alive in 2017 coz my highlight is sooo woke with this. I think this is what Bretman Rock eats for breakfast to shine like a diamond. Abangan ang review!!!
And yet in another episode of happy Maybelline managers, Kat Diaz, product manager for face is sooo happy to reveal that Powder Mattes is coming suuuuper soon! Like very very soon that your monniessss need to be ready. There is a shade that has the potential to be as viral as Touch of Spice so watch out!
I think Kat’s expression perfectly screams out “OMG thanks to Maybelline women all over the world can have matte looks without dry lips I love my job mabuhay kayo.” And really, that really is what they have longed to do and will continue doing so into the future, especially with this new collection. If you’ve tried Creamy Mattes, Rosy Mattes, Vivid Mattes or any other matte collection they have, you will have probably realized by now that Maybelline does mattes in the comfiest ways possible.
