Beauty Blossoms in Manila with Pixy Cosmetics
I’ve always been fond of Japanese brands. Not only in makeup but in general. My parents always told me that products from Japan have good quality and I’ve seen that as I grow up. That’s why when I see Japanese beauty products, I know I had to test it for myself.
Last August 6, 2014, Mandom Philippines, bringers of Gatsby, Bifesta and Lucido-L introduced yet another quality but affordable makeup brand. Pixy Cosmetics, specially formulated in Japan while Indonesian-manufactured, made its way from Japan, Indonesia and Malaysia to bring the best of Asian beauty. Through Pixy Cosmetics, that famous makeup look from Japanese girls will be very much attainable at a really low cost.
What’s exciting about Pixy is that it offers the best of ladylike “gal” trend with a twist: it’s incredibly affordable, wearable and easy to do. Pixy comes in the most cutest of packaging which will serve as your loyal beauty companion, promising to awaken your youthful glow and creative spirit no matter where you are. Also, despite being affordable, Pixy flatters skin tones while infusing the same light reflecting, skin-perfecting properties, making Japanese cosmetics high in demand.
The event was held at Whitespace, Makati. It was one of the most beautiful venues I have ever been into. The venue was beautifully decorated with Cherry Blossoms, pink chairs, lanterns, needlessness to say, the place was just pure KAWAII!!! It was heaven for pink lovers like me

The main event was hosted by Patty Laurel-Filart a TV Personality and a blogger as well, then proceeded by a few words from Mandom Corporation’s President & CEO Hiroyuki Mitsuoka, followed by Hirotsugu Ohashi, Mandom Corporation’s General Manager of Sales and Marketing.
“Mandom is excited to bring Pixy here to the Philippines because we believe our purpose is to contribute to the beautiful, healthy and pleasant living. Filipinas have an innate happiness and natural beauty. Pixy allows women to enhance this beauty by offering quality products to highlight their Truly Asian Beauty,” shares Hiroyuki Mitsuoka, President of Mandom Philippines.
It was then followed by a makeup demonstration by Pixy’s Makeup Artist Xeng Zulueta. Her work has been featured in a lot of magazine covers, fashion and beauty editorials, ad campaigns, runway, television, as well as collaboration with top photographers.

She demonstrated two distinct looks that you can achieve using Pixy Cosmetics. The Tokyo Kawaii (left) and the Tokyo Glam (right). She mentions that she really likes the sponge of Pixy’s UV Whitening Two Way Cake because no matter how you wet it it doesn’t budge nor does it change its form. Also, she’s very impressed with its coverage. You can just layer it on if you want to cover up something. No need to use a concealer!

The main event was concluded after we ate our lunch then after taking some pictures of those beautiful cherry blossoms all around the venue. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to take much photos of the decorations and the placements because I was late, but you can search them at Instagram using the hashtag #getpixyfied.
And of course that would be me, with my beauty blogger event buddies for that day
