We never thought putting on lipstick could be in any way patriotic, but apparently, it's 100% possible. Early this June, local makeup brand FS Cosmetics released a line of lip colors inspired by iconic Filipina names we all know and love.
The brand's Filipiñana Collection features a total of eight lipstick shades, in honor of Pinay fantasy characters (Darna and Dyesebel), a national hero (Gabriela Silang), some literary characters (Maria Clara, Laura, and Sisa), and names often referenced in Filipino culture (Maganda and Reyna Elena). The shades come in a variation of classic reds and pinks, and each lipstick claims to be matte and longwearing.
That said, our favorite thing about these lipsticks is probably the packaging—a gorgeous glossy bullet adorned with a nationalistic emblem. Oh, and it's apparently also magnetic (which is a foolproof way to never lose a lipstick cap).
Retailing at P299 each, these lippies are definitely a steal! Not to mention, it's not everyday we come across cosmetics that celebrate women, Filipinas, and makeup all at once!
The Filipiñana collection is currently available in all FS Cosmetics outlets and online at Shopee.
