This was their popup store! I also have yet to find out if they’ll be opening permanent stores like this, or have brick and mortar stores, or just stick to having shelves in major department stores.
For those who are not necessarily into the dewy look, but want a foundation that gives a fresh look to the skin, they also have their Espoir Pro Tailor Foundation Be Silk (Php2200 for 30mL, Php900 for 10mL). For those who want a sort of matte look, but want something that doesn’t look chalky nor feel dry to the skin, this is the right choice.
These are the swatches for the Espoir Pro Tailor Foundation Be Glow (Php2200 for 30mL, Php900 for 10mL). From top to bottom are: 23W, 22C, 23NC, 25NC, 26C, DARK3.

For the program, we got to see Espoir makeup artist Aiden Park do a makeup show! It was so fun to watch him mix several lip creams to come up with a custom shade. Apparently, whenever they did this in Korea, they would broadcast it via live stream, and usually, people would hoard the custom shades immediately. It was an honor to go home with an Espoir custom lip shade.
Interestingly, after Aiden was able to combine the different shades, he added powder to mattify it. And then he proceeded to put it in a piping bag to dispense it.
