Avon launches its latest beauty masterpieces at the Met.
Art Start Avon launches its latest beauty masterpieces at the Met.

Last August 10th, direct-selling beauty big shot Avon showcased three of their newest product offerings at The Metropolitan Museum of Manila. The cosmopolitan venue served as a launchpad for the brand's latest brainchildren in the realms of makeup, bath and body care and fragrance. The event, which was rightfully entitled “Beauty Masterpieces,” featured all the products juxtaposed with famous works of art sharing a similar theme.

Skin So Soft Whitening Hand and Body Lotion, a targeted brightening body moisturizer, was alongside Sandro Boticelli's “Birth of Venus,” highlighting the product's emphasis on the ideal of fair, smooth skin and soft, feminine curves.

Andy Warhol's cult classic “Marilyn,” a hypersaturated, pop art rendering of the legendary Hollywood screen siren, was made to complement the Glazewear Dimensions Lipstick, the brand's shiniest and sexiest lip color to date.

Finally, “Puritan and Genesta” by James E. Butterworth provided the perfect foil for the fragrance Jet Femme EDT, whose notes of guava, watermelon and jasmine exuded a luxurious, carefree vibe that echoed especially with its chosen endorser, the jetsetting Ruffa Gutierrez.

Avon Philippines President and General Manager Bob Briddon says, “Having been inspired by their subjects, great artists like Boticelli, Warhol, and Buttersworth were able to create iconic masterpieces. In the same way, having understood women and their needs, Avon has been able to provide beauty products that address the specific needs of ladies anywhere in the globe.”

Great minds, Avon! We won't argue: true, attainable beauty is a work of art indeed.

Skin So Soft Whitening Hand and Body Lotion, P350 (P175 from August 1-31); Glazewear Dimensions Lipstick (8 shades), P375 (P249 from August 16-September 15); and Jet Femme Eau de Toilette, P1350 for 50ml (available October 1st, with a special intro price of P699), all from AVON Ladies at 864-2900 or through
