Hello guys. I have been busy these past few days, thus, taking a break from blogging. Anyway, I'd like to share my personal Artistry Experience with you all. I was not able to attend the launch of their latest product a couple of weeks ago so I pushed through with this one instead. In as much as I hate going to Makati, I braved the Manila heat and moderate-heavy traffic and went there. I finally met the very nice and friendly Dr. Meeko Hilario who introduced their skin care and makeup up products one by one.
He patiently explained the different skin care lines and products and what they are for. These are the products from the Essentials line. I was able to try a few at the back of my hands such as the Essentials Polishing Scrub, Essentials Pore Cleansing Masque, Pure White Essence (from their Pure White line), Time Defiance Skin Refinishing Lotion and 3D Lifting Serum from their Time Defiance line. I also got to try the Intensive Skincare Renewing Peel. I noticed how the skin on the areas I applied these products at felt smoother and looked brighter. :)
I also got the chance to check out their cosmetics. :)
Their liquid foundation has two variants - Balancing for oily-skinned people and Hydrating for those with dry skin. However, there are are only 4 shades so finding a really good match can be quite tricky. Well, easier, I guess. I think mine's Vanilla. The shades are the same for both liquid and powder foundations, by the way. Liquid foundations cost Php 1470 for a 30mL bottle which comes with a pump. Powder foundations cost Php 1615 for the refill which contains 12g of product and Php 940 for the compact.
Most of their lippies are neutral-toned for the more conservative women. But I was told they will come up with more vibrant and youthful shades. Lipsticks cost Php 1250 for 3.8g and lip shines (glosses) cost Php 1050 for 4g of product.
They also have eye shadows and blushes. Of course, I swatched some for you to see. Each cheek colour costs Php 695 for 3g and a separate compact can be purchased for Php 990. The compact reminds me of the old Shu Uemura compact (the one I have) wherein you can put 2 blushes or 4 eye shadows and a blush and 2 eye shadows. Each eye colour pan costs Php 805 for 1g of product.
I noticed that the price of their products are quite competitive. The price range of their cosmetics reminds me of Dior, Shu Uemura, NARS, etc. I was told that that's because their products are of the same range as Dior, Chanel, and other high end brands. That, I cannot attest to since I do not own any Artistry product yet. But here are the three products I plan to purchase soon.
Essentials makeup remover (said to be Tessa Prieto's fave) Php 950 for 120mL, Replenishing Eye Cream Php 665 for 15mL, and the Time Defiance Skin Refinishing Lotion Php 1600 for 30mL (this makes the skin feel so smooth and texture reminds of me silicone-based primers)
Overall, the experience was nice because if it was a bad one, I probably wouldn't want to purchase the three products I mentioned. I know that this is like network marketing but I didn't feel like I was being forced to buy products like some people do. Membership costs Php 1000 and you can sign up as a consumer or for business purposes. I'm thinking that maybe I will, as a consumer, once I have tried one of the three products.
If you are by any chance interested to try and purchase Artistry products, you may contact Dr. Meeko Hilario at 09178163356.
Have a great weekend, super awesome peeps! :)
