A local beauty brand with a 54-product collection? Issy & Co. Cosmetics raises the bar with its Customizable Eye and Face Palette collection consisting of 34 pressed shadow singles, nine powder blush inserts, three powder bronzer inserts, three powder contour inserts, three powder highlighter inserts, an eyeshadow and concealer base, plus a magnetic refillable palette. 

It also comes in 10 curated palette sets for those who have go-to tones or beginners who are overwhelmed with the options. Our favorites include the All Matte and Spacecraft eyeshadow palettes as well as the Dollhouse blush trio

Levi’s Cool Eco Performance collection

Breathable, sustainably sourced denim? Say less, Levi’s. If you’re looking to rock denim looks despite today’s unpredictable “ber” season weather, try the Cool Eco Performance garments made of fiber that cools you down and wicks away moisture.

The women’s pieces include boyfriend jeans, logo tees, and an ever reliable ’90s trucker jacket. 

Also interesting to note: This year marks the 150th anniversary of their iconic 501 jeans. Talk about wardrobe staples.

Want natural-looking defined brows while on a budget? Chu Chü Beauty has dropped their Brow Setter collection of shaping eyebrow gels that come in Clear, Choco, and Gray. It comes with a beginner-friendly fine applicator wand for those worried about applying too much product. And it only retails for P199 each.

The collection pairs well with their Skinny Brow Pencils that come in the shades Medium Brown, Choco Brown, and Gray Brown. The ultra-fine pencil creates hair-like strokes to fill in gaps for that full brow look.

Missed Love, Bonito’s 13th anniversary Best of the Best collection? Cheer up because the brand kicked off September with a curated collection by Kryz Uy. Take notes from the chic mom by donning pieces like the Jaclyn Pleather Column Maxi Skirt (with functional pockets!) and the lightweight Bethani Rayon Wide Leg Jumpsuit. 

But if you’ve been really eyeing the Best of Best fan favorites, pieces like the leg lengthening Pvara Regular Flare Pants and the Kaleni Padded Plunge Maxi Dress with crisscross straps are still in stock. Live your Barbie fantasy by copping them in magenta.  

Colourette Cosmetics’ new Easy Matte shades

Looking for a lightweight but pigmented lippie? Colourette is offering three new Easy Matte shades that fit the bill: spicy peach Siesta, bare rose Rest Day, and sangria red Wine Down. 

These velvet lipsticks are made for everyday use and have an improved strawberry scent. Pair them with the Blur Balm lip primer for longer wear and to keep your lips hydrated.
