Banila Co. Now in the Philippines

Sunday, December 20, 2015

     Korean skin care and makeup still have a hug impact on Filipinas. They've invaded our pop culture by storm and I'm pretty sure that a portion of teenagers today go gaga over their glowing skin and pretty makeup line. I'm also a fan of Korean skin care and makeup as I find them majority of them cost effective. They're the ones who introduced the bb and cc creams. Of course I've tried a lot from other brands and a new player is going to make us fall in love with their oh so pretty products.

     Korea’s influence over our cosmetics industry has gained considerable momentum through the years — and it promises to grow even bigger. The first wave of the Korean cosmetics invasion brought to the Philippines a plethora of Korean cosmetics brands that focuses mainly on skincare and some makeup. The Philippines however, stands as the only country in South East Asia where makeup outsells skincare. Despite this, there hasn’t been a brand that can truly stand for Korean makeup until today. Banila Co. is now in the Philippines and they've introduced their best-selling products in a launch last month. More details below :)

     Banila Co. Philippines launched the brand at the Marco Polo Hotel last November 23, 2015 as the “No. 1 base makeup brand” representing Asian beauty. The launch was graced by Banila Co. CEO Mr. Chang Soo Kim, Chief Makeup Artist Mr. Kangpil Kim, and Managing Directors Cathryn and Jon Lim of All That Blush Trading Inc. During the launch, Kangpil Kim demonstrated a makeup tutorial on how to achieve that Korean lit or glow. He used the best-selling products from Banila Co.
