shu news

twenty-four hours ago, we walked into zen at glorietta 3 for the first shu uemura event of the year. it was also the last event of tina tinio, who we like to call the shu uemura evangelist of the philippines. ever since she joined l'orĂ©al to launch the shu uemura brand in the philippines in 2002, she and her team have made the japanese cosmetics brand the consistent number-one selling brand in rustan's, where it is sold. by march 2007, tina will be moving to singapore to represent shu uemura in the southeast asia region. bongga! congratulations, tina T! (and buh-bye, boo-hoo!) zen was filled with editors from different publications to hear the tear-filled speeches of tina, tessa dragon (who will take over tina's position), and xeng zulueta, shu's only accredited national makeup artist in the country. such drama! (the shu gals below, L-R: tessa, tina, xeng:) we almost forgot that we were there for a launch—of "summer prism," the season's colors, the white recovery ex range, and rouge unlimited lipstick. (at nabusog kami sa japanese food.) these are the models made up by xeng and the shu team wearing summer prism... and assorted editors, stylists, and beauty writers scattered throughout zen, who we interrupted in the middle of scarfing down assorted sushis (ganda rin nila, 'no? ;-)...
