Leave it to MAC Cosmetics Philippines to present the Spring-Summer 2015 beauty trend report in the island paradise of Boracay. Every season and new collection in the past has so far been launched in very interesting and glamorous events. This one sets a new standard for seasonal launches. MAC Philippines flew the country’s top editors and a few bloggers to attend the presentation by Director of Artistry Romero Jennings. We all stayed at the luxurious Shangri-la Boracay for a couple of nights.
Here are some highlights.
Upon arrival we were treated to some island essentials – the Face Protect Lotion SPF 50 and Mineralized Charged Water. I had my DAPHNE & NBS margarita pouch. And my favourite pair of sunnies – Thierry Lasry limited edition.
The Shangri-la welcome. Yes to tropical fruits anytime.
Flying in, I wore my DAPHNE x Seek the Uniq wrap skirt.
My spacious room.
We were treated to a facial at Chi The Spa at Shangri-la Boracay.
With my best bud Ingrid Go, and Manila Bulletin’s Arnel Patawaran and Town & Country’s Nicole Limos.
We each had our own spa cottage.
I swear, my future cottage will have a lovely courtyard like this.
MAC hosted a beautiful welcome dinner by the beach garden.
Lovely personal touches. Our water glasses were engraved with our own monograms.
So much loveliness.

The cocktails were specifically designed inspired by lipsticks – Heroine, Ruby Woo, Morange, Candy Yum Yum and Sin.

The smores bar was a big hit.
I finally got to wear my black silk dress that I bought from Magali Pascal in Bali. I love that shop.

MAC sent makeup artist Gee Vee to my room to prep me for dinner. Such luxury!

Perfect place to wear caftans.
I wore mine during the day. My favourite caftan, from Mist in Bali.
My DAPHNE & NBS hummingbird tote bag came in handy.
Off to the beach to catch the sunset. Wore Melissa sandals.
We did the sunset thing…
Until it turned like this.
