Last week, I went slightly business-y and explained the rise in busy meters for the first to the quinary sectors of the economy (The T Zone, “‘Tis the season…to be busy,” November 20, 2014) come Christmastime.
This being the one time of year that even the most frugal of consumers are happy to spend, a chain reaction takes place where manufacturers unleash an avalanche of products in the market, which we in the lifestyle media, are tasked to report the public. Thus, if a reader decides to exercise the power of the peso on any new product, we effectively become part of the economic movement in the country in the quinary sector.
And so with that quick recap, allow me to assume my small contribution to the economic process with today’s issue of The T-Zone.
‘Bling’ on the season
Christmas sparkles take on a whole new meaning with the Benefit Bling Brow—a holiday makeup trend whose Philippine launch was led by the San Francisco cosmetics favorite’s international spokesperson for global services and brow authority Jared Bailey.
The absolutely colorful and lovable Jared flew into Manila with exquisite Swarovski crystals made for Benefit, which gals and fabulous guys like him can line across beautifully shaped brows. Called Bling Brows, these tiny precious thing give eye candy a whole new meaning.
“Bling Brow is fast, flattering and instantly glamorous,” Jared, who should have his own TV show in the tradition of Carson Kressley et. al. (though this guy is way handsomer), enthused. “It’s sure to turn heads and reinforce the fact that Benefit is the go-to brand for any brow service.”
Bling Brow—if you’re fun, fabulous and game—is available in the three looks of Touch of Bling, Over the Top Bling, and Big Time Bling from Benefit Brow Bars and boutiques across the country.
