L’Oréal Brandstorm is L’Oréal’s signature global innovation competition for students that started in 1992. Brandstorm is one of the largest student competitions in the world. Locally, L’Oréal Philippines has mounted the annual business competition since 2009. But more than a talent-spotting tool, Brandstorm is an incubator for innovative projects and young talents—honing them to become one of the best in the marketing field and bringing their ideas to life.

This year, L’Oréal Brandstorm embraces diversity by going nationwide. From the usual pool of three schools all centered in Metro Manila, Brandstorm 2017 is now open to three times more schools all over the country totaling to over 17 partner colleges and universities. This makes the competition open to diverse groups of students, regardless of course, degree or level.

L-R: L’Oreal Philippines Human Resources Directo Tina Ampil, Team Maxim’s Mentor Tessa Albaña, Team Maxim’s Herna Alpha Tiagan, Genevieve Millan and Jasper Dioco; and L’Oreal Philippines Managing Director Thibault de Saint Victor.

Faced with a battle of skill and talent to create the most innovate new product and integrated marketing campaign against over 400 hundred teams from across the country, Team Maxim from the University of the Philippines Visayas snagged the first place which was held at the L’Oréal Academie last April 18, Tuesday. Team Hustle from Ateneo de Manila University came in a close second, followed by Team Champs from University of the Philippines Diliman in third place. This year’s National Winners take home a P50,000 in cash, P20,000 worth of products for their mentor Tessa Albaña, and P3,000 worth of products for the team.  They move onto the L’Oreal Brandstorm Asia-Pacific Regional Finals on May 5.

Winning the National Finals is just half the winning team’s Brandstorm journey as they represent the Philippines at the Asia-Pacific Regional Finals in May, and hopefully move on to the international competition in June in Paris, France.  Beyond competing with teams all over the world for the coveted title of Brandstorm International Champions and a cash prize of 10,000 Euros, the International Finals will be an avenue for the students to immerse themselves in L’Oréal’s culture right where it begins – at the L’Oréal Headquarters. At the International Finals, an innovation fair will also be hosted by L’Oréal to give both students and professors a chance to exchange ideas with all the teams coming in from across the globe.

Five other student teams also saw action in the April 18 National Finals:  Team L’OLreal and Team Y3 from the University of the Philippines Diliman , Team iWill from San Beda College – Mendiola, Team 16°C from Saint Louis University Baguio, and Team Stormbusters from University of the Philippines Visayas.

Now on its 25th year, L’Oreal Brandstorm is the Company’s signature innovation competition that  gives students across the world the opportunity become innovation leaders.

With this year’s partner brand, L’Oréal Men Expert, the World’s No. 1 Skincare Brand for Men, this year’s young fire starters were challenged to recruit millennial men through a new product and breakthrough service that leveraged digital solutions and connected technologies.  From the field of 421 teams, eight Finalists were chosen to battle it out and present their groundbreaking pitches on disrupting the men’s grooming industry.

From 421 teams joining the competition, the 8 finalists comprised of 3 teams from the University of the Philippines Diliman, 2 teams from the University of the Philippines Visayas, and one team each from Ateneo de Manila University, San Beda College – Mendiola and Saint Louis University battled it out and presented their groundbreaking pitches on disrupting the men’s grooming industry.

“We did not expect this and it’s like all our hard work just paid off. We really wanted to show what we can do. Coming to Manila and as one of the Top 8 was already a really amazing experience, and winning this competition is more than we had ever hoped,” explains Team Maxim’s Genevieve Millan.

The team’s winning idea focused on giving men more time and more confidence through a liquor-inspired product line which responded to consumer insights. With four innovative products introduced to the market in various channels such as event activations, social media engagement, and mobile application integration, the team presented an integrated marketing campaign that the judges felt best responded to what millennial men need ‘to stay ahead of the game’ while staying true to the spirit of L’Oréal Men Expert.

“Brandstorm is more than just an instrument to spot young talents. It’s also a great avenue to incubate ideas of young talents who can be future leaders of the beauty business,” shared Jake Bustos, Brandstorm Project Manager and Campus Manager of L’Oreal Philippines. “This year, Brandstorm Philippines expanded its reach to partner over 20 schools, securing registrations of over 1,520 student players.  This year’s Brandstorm competition in the Philippines is the biggest in Southeast Asia to date.”

Did you know that crayons can now be used on your lips? Well, almost! Clinique and Crayola partnered up to bring you Clinique’s Chubby Sticks; if you have fond memories of playing with Crayola sticks when you were younger, then for sure you’re going to love this Crayola inspired collection by Clinique.


Friday, March 24, the Clinique x Crayola event was held at U.P Town Center Activity area, and it was filled with fun activities such as free popcorn, customized cotton candy, first hand experience with brand’s newest collection, a photobooth area, and — to bring in the nostalgia — coloring area. But the main highlight was the day-to-night make-up workshop from celebrity make-up artist Paolo Maranan who used the Crayola Chubby Sticks to create summer-ready looks.


This product is made with nourishing ingredients that leave your lips plump and moisturized! And did I mention that the new shades were actually colour matched to perfection in order to resemble the actual shades from Crayola?

Brand Name versus Quality. Which do you pay for? Honest speaking, I really don’t mind the brand as long as that alternative product works well too or almost the same from the branded one.

In today’s economy, people must be smart shopper and that’s the Watsons campaign,  “Switch & Save” which was launched wayback 2012. It is an educational effort that showed smart shoppers how to save on their personal care essentials in order to afford more of the things they really wanted and all they had to do so was shift from the leading brand to the Watsons brand!

Switch and Save Products


In those first years, that simple idea proved a smashing success because Watsons customers all across the country made the switch, changing our their toothbrushes, tissues, lotions and more for the affordable, high quality Watsons alternative. Having a great momentum behind the movement, Watsons decided to expand their campaign to the pharmacy. Launching Watsons Generics in year 2014, Watsons was able to bring that same promise of affordable quality to Filipinos everywhere. Improving the state of nation’s healthcare was a huge win.

Switch and Save Endorsers


But even with so many switches on board, not everyone seemed to be convinced having the notion that “cheaper means lower quality” yet the Watsons team knew the trith that with their products’ amazing quality, most people wouldn’t even feel the difference. That’s when a big idea was born – The Switch Test. The team would mount an in-store activity that asked shoppers to compare Watsons to the leading brands. The hitch – they had to do it blind. Without being able to see the brands, customers were asked to try out two products and choose the one they would rather buy. Of course, the results were overwhelming because 8 out of 10 shoppers chose the Watsons Label product over the leading branded counterpart. But the surprises didn’t end here because Watsons six celebrity endorsers, Christian Bautista, Tessa Prieto-Valdes, Iya Villania, Kylie Padilla, Lorna Tolentino and Edu Manzano  were gathered together to try the Switch Test. Running the same blind test used in stores, Watsons asked each of the celebs the question, “What’s the difference between these two products?” Their verdict-none! Not even the discerning endorsers could tell exactly the difference between Watsons products quality and the leading brands’. There was, however, one big change they all noted. If you switch to Watsons, you can save up to 80%.

Watsons Karen Fabres, Danilo Chiong, Jared De Guzman, Viki Encarnacion, Aida Lapez with Edu Manzano, Lorna Tolentino, Iya Villania, Kylie Padilla and Christian Bautista

With so much more waiting this 2017, Watsons will be kick starting the year through the launch of the new Switch and Save TV commercial. Catch it and see for yourself the difference or you too will be convinced to Switch and Save!

Paris is my dream destination probably because it’s the fashion capital of the world and of course Paris itself is a beautiful city but let’s be honest that going to this beautiful city is quite pricey right? So for now, I’ll try as much as I can to be a Parisian woman in terms of scent as Watsons brings Enchanteur Paris to the Philippines.


Enchanteur Paris is a range of high quality and timeless French-inspired fine Eau de Toilettes (EDT) and fragrance-infused body care products for young women. And now, Watsons made it easier for Filipinas who love to smell good to choose ther signature scent from this line of quality but affordable EDT.

There are four Enchanteur fragrances for different personalities. These lovely and enchanting scents were inspired by the romance of Paris, the City of Lights, and the chic aesthetic of French women.

Enchanteur Mon Amie + Enchanteur Magique Product Line

First is the Magique which is suitable for the carefree, confident and adventurous girl having a magical mix of apple, magnolia and praline. This is perfect for a day out with your sweetheart as you try fun and new things together.

Enchanteur Mon Amie Product Line

Mon Amie is for the fun, cheerful and charming girl. She can wear this breezy scent of fresh citrus, red apple and pink peonies on an exciting adventure with friends.

Enchanteur Belle Amour Product Line


Belle Amour is for the romantic sweet girl on her first date with a special person. This is a captivating blend of apple, melon, blackcurrant and pink rose scents that would make her date’s heart beat faster.

Enchanteur Adore Product Line

Adore is for the elegant, graceful and adorable girl. She likes the sensual scent of wild jasmine, pink mimosa and golden pear. This alluring fragrance evokes glamor and sophistication.

All four Enchanteur Paris fragrances strike the perfect balance whether you want something light, fresh, sparkling, elegant or sensual.

Enchanteur Paris also shares a French woman’s secret to making her fragrance last longer and that is through complementing the Eau de Toilette with the Parfum Lotion, Parfum Serum, Deospray and Hand Cream. With these products, your chosen Enchanteur Paris scent will linger and enchant the whole day.


Enchanteur Paris is exclusively available at all Watsons stores nationwide and The SM Store-Beauty Section.

    • Moisturizer. Apply very thinly before primer. You can apply using finger or by using a flat foundation brush.
    • Primer. Apply all over the face with fingers or brush to make your foundation last for hours.
    • Foundation. With your beauty blender, pat it flat on your face starting from the center going outwards. Find a base designed for your skin type such as oily skin, combination skin and dry skin.
      • For oily skin, look for words like “oil-control” or “oil-free. If your skin is extremely shiy, you may need one containing oil-absorbing powders.
      • If you have combination skin, either you can try a moisturizing foundation if mostly dry and if not go with an oil-free.
    • Concealer.
    • Contour and Highlighting.
    • Setting with Powder. Using a brush or powder puff, pat it over your foundation to set it and to absorb excess oil.

  • Brows. Remember to groom the brows first. Fill in the the brows with an angled brush and spoolie, and apply brow mascara to set the brows in place.
  • Eyes. The safest colors are the brown tones. Stick to a light/champagne shade, medium brown, dark brown or black as your everyday colors.
  • Eyeliner. When applying the eyeliner, make sure to apply it as close to the lash line as possible. Do not forget to apply the inner water line as well. Set it with a matte black eye shadow.
  • Mascara. Wiggle the wand while applying mascara. It is also important to apply mascara after applying false eyelashes. Make sure to apply both on upper and lower lashes.
  • Blush. Smile and pat it on the apple of your cheeks. Tap off excess product when applying blush. Use a blush brush.
  • Lipstick. Make sure to apply a shade that’s complementary to your skin tone. Choose warm shades if in doubt.
  • Setting Sprays. Spray twice with an X direction across the face to set your makeup in place.

The grand gala was hosted by former Binibining Pilipinas-World, Maggi Wilson-Consunji which will be one of the judges together with the Preview Creative Director Vince Uy, celebrity stylist Rain Dagala and the President of the Professional Models Association of the Philippines, Raf Kiefer.

Oppo have already partnered with America’s Next Top Model (ANTM) for Cycle 22 that aired in 2015, wherein contestants were given selfie challenges using the camera features, such as beautify, double exposure, and panorama.


“America’s Next Top model was a worldwide sensation that several countries had their own edition of the internationally renowned television contest. We are proud to be part of this show’s new Philippine edition,” said OPPO Philippines Brand Marketing Manager Stephen Cheng. “Like the brand’s collaboration with the team behind America’s Next Top Model, we hope to be just as successful here in the country.”

“This is also an opportunity for us to show the other side of the OPPO brand which puts prime on fashion and lifestyle,” he added.

About OPPO, it is a global electronics and technology service provider that provides customers with the latest and most exquisite electronic devices and mobile Internet service. It also delivers customers with the most electronic experience that is full of surprises through meticulous designs and smart technology.

The Kapatid Network, which aired two seasons of Asia’s Next Top Model, announced auditions in early January this year after acquiring production and airing rights.
