Visiting Holika Holika at SM Fairview

I don't know if you've heard, but Korean makeup and skin care brand Holika Holika has recently opened their first branch here in the Philippines. 


Honestly, I wasn't too familiar with the brand before visiting their store. I only heard about it from Jen of frmheadtotoe's videos, where she used the Wonder Drawing Dot Liner, a three-pronged eyeliner pen, which I found really interesting.

Anyway, when I heard from my favorite beauty bloggers that Holika Holika had just opened their first branch here at SM Fairview, I promised to pay it a visit, especially since SM Fairview was just a 10-minute ride away from me! Went there a few weeks back with my friends Eyah and Gina.

Let me show you some of the things that caught my eye!

Greeted with their selection of lovely nail polishes! Packaged in potion-esque bottles!
Lovely pink-purple-blue chrome shade! I'll come back for this :)
Makeup removers
CC cream
Moist Cushion BB, which reminded me of the Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion
Powders and blushes
Love Fantasy Blusher
Lipsticks, glosses and tints
Heart-shaped lipstick, which reminded me of my favorite Avon lipstick!
Cute Dessert Time lip balms!
Mascaras, eyeliners and eyebrow products
Bubble foam cleanser that comes with its own facial brush

I'll definitely come back soon for some of these items, especially the nail polish! Have you tried Holika Holika products yet? Any suggestions on what to buy? Let me know by commenting below! :)

  1. Hi Ms. aya, how do you approach the attendants in a store if you want to take pictures of their shop or products (for blogging purposes) kasi nahihiya ako, because my friends and I tried once to take pictures in a store but they said no picture taking allowed. thanks.

  4. I was able to test that trident eye liner in real life. It *does* make winging out so much simpler. I can't put my finger on why, but there's a big difference!

  6. Hi, Arra! I ask them lang if I can take pictures. Pag tinanong nila kung para saan, sinasabi ko lang na ipopost ko lang sa blog ko sa internet or something. Like here sa Holika, pumayag naman so nakapagpicture kami. Oo nga eh, minsan may bawal talaga magpicture. Kaya nag nininja moves lang ako. HAHA secret lang natin.
