I'm a late bloomer when it comes to make up!
Improvement na now that I use BB Cream and sunblock every time I go out. But during lazy days, I will always resort to fuss-free, easy to use makeup products. As a celebrity with busy sched, Anne Curtis knows all about these "offs days" and decided to come up with her own "Uncomplicated Beauty" makeup line.
I learned more about her products when I went to the launch of BLK Cosmetics last week at the fancy Manila House in BGC. More photos from the event below!
Traffic was so bad that day that when I arrived at the venue, it was already packed with bloggers, vloggers, and IG-ers. Everyone's buzzing about random things from traffic, to the different lipstick consistencies of BLK Cosmetics, to how Instagram-worthy the venue is.

The station at the event where we overstayed: The swatching table!
I am super oily, so I got excited when I saw BLK's All Day Matte Powder Foundation (Php 399). This is available in Light Beige and Natural Beige.
I swatched BLK's black Long Lasting Eyeliner (Php 249), and true enough, had a hard time removing it after taking a photo! This is also available in brown.
Another exciting palette is their Contour, Blush, and Highlight Palette (Php 499), which comes in Sun-Kissed and Flushed. I love the compact packaging with mirror, so I can bring it everyday or even on travels.
Meanwhile, since "kilay is life" the Brow Sculpting Pencil Duo (Php 249) comes in Natural Brown and Taupe:
I think the lipppies line is the heart of BLK Cosmetics, since Anne Curtis mentioned that she decided to create her own makeup line after getting lots of inquiries on the different lipstick shades she wears everyday. BLK Cosmetics has THREE different lipstick consistencies, including:
1) Long Lasting Liquid Matte Lipstick (Php 349) - Available in Sophisticated, Simple, Brazen, Bold, and Sassy
2) All-Day Intense Matte Lipstick (Php 299) - Available in Chic, Charming, Bubbly, Elegant, Fearless, and Brave.
3) Velvet Lip Cream (Php 299) - Available in Alluring, Classy, Refined, and Flirty.
My favorite BLK Cosmetics packaging:
Other than the affordable pricing that doesn't go beyond Php 500, I like that BLK Cosmetics is also proudly cruelty-free:
Congrats Anne Curtis and to the whole BLK Cosmetics team for this exciting, new endeavour!
