It's official: Anne Curtis is getting married! The actress is tying the knot with long-time boyfriend Erwan Heussaff in New Zealand, surrounded by their close friends and family. In a gorgeous custom Monique Lhuillier gown, Anne's beauty game is on point as per usual, entering the venue as a true blushing bride in a monochrome pink look punctuated by a dusty rose lip that stands out from underneath her veil. Unlike yesterday at the welcoming party, the bride kept her hair true to its length this time with her signature soft waves.

The lipstick the actress wore in front of the altar is from her beauty brand blk cosmetics, and it's a shade she created specifically for the occasion. Even better, she's sharing it not only with her bridesmaids but with all of her fans and fellow beauty enthusiasts!

To celebrate this new milestone in her life, the blk creative director is releasing the exact lipsticks she used on her wedding day. They'll be in a limited edition bridal-themed collection, which contains two lip colors that fit the newlywed's personality to a T.

The first shade, called I Do, is the nude pink that she's wearing for the wedding proper. It's a matte, long-wearing MLBB shade that's perfect for a bride! Then there's Mon Amour, a subdued red that Anne is changing into at the reception. According to blk's co-owner Jacq Gutierrez, Anne personally chose these shade names since they're very special to her. For example, Mon Amour is actually what she calls Erwan!

In an interiew with Preview, Jacq shares with us the story behind how she and Anne created the collection. Learn more about the special set below!

Hi Jacq! Did Anne really plan to launch and wear these shades on her wedding day?

"Yes, it’s actually her idea to release a bridal lippie! We started working on this last June and it took a while to get the shades that she wanted. She’s super particular about the color especially with I Do. It’s actually a combination of three different lippies put together!"

What were Anne’s instructions as you were developing the lipsticks? How did she decide on the shades?

"She was a perfectionist with these shades because it’s really what she will wear on her wedding day. It was really important that we get the shades right. She wanted I Do to look natural and fresh; for Mon Amour, she wanted a deeper shade for the dinner reception but still subdued and timeless.

"Robbie [Piñera] was a big help when we were finalizing the bridal shades, too. He has done her makeup for so long so Anne really trusts him to recommend the best shade for her to wear on her most special day."

What about the formula makes it perfect for weddings and other big occasions?

"Anne chose to use the All-Day Intense Matte line for her bridal lippies because it’s super comfortable on the lips and it’s very long-wearing. You don’t need to retouch as often so you can enjoy your big day without worries!"


What makes the box set so unique?

"The set is actually is patterned after [the wedding's] Save the Date, so you’ll see there a map of New Zealand and the logo of the wedding! It’s Anne's way of celebrating her wedding with her fans. A toast to long-lasting love, and even longer-lasting lipsticks!"

What is Anne like as a creative partner especially in a case like this?

"Anne is very passionate on everything that she does so it’s really expected that she’ll be super hands-on in developing her bridal lippies! The good thing about her is she’s clear about what she wants, so we can be very efficient in giving feedback and she stands by her decisions. The box's design, the signature on the lippie, and the matte gold packaging is all her!"

So, are you getting the set? We know we are!

The limited edition blk Bridal All-Day Intense Matte Lipsticks will be available in all blk counters in Watsons, The SM Store, and online in Zalora.
