“The most delicious beauty shop in town” opens in Uptown Bonifacio
The much-awaited and biggest Beauty Buffet shop in the Philippines finally opened last September 21 at Uptown Bonifacio. The mall’s atrium was transformed into a pretty pink cafe-inspired venue where guests flocked to welcome this most delicious shop.
Tables of delicious Beauty Buffet products were on display, along with delectable food and pastries by French Baker and gelato from Mio Gelati were served for all the guests to enjoy. Selfie stations with Beauty Buffet products and cute props were also available for guests to have extra fun with their selfie shots. Makeup counters with Beauty Buffet professional makeup artists were ready to share their makeup tips and apply makeup to the guests as well.
It’s finally here
Lifestyle blogger/vlogger and host Janeena Chan opened the program and welcomed the Nolasco sisters, Cheska, Celina, and Nicole on stage. These ladies are the ones who discovered Beauty Buffet from their frequent trips to Thailand. “We have been fans ever since. It has been our dream to share Beauty Buffet to the rest of the Filipinos,” tells Nicole Nolasco.
Finally in the Philippines, after years of discussions with Beauty Buffet Thailand, Beauty Buffet Philippines was awarded to LimNolasco Beauty Trading Corporation. Its president, Mr. Edgar Lim, has set high expectations for this exciting beauty retail player: “The Philippines has the same tropical climate as Thailand, making Beauty Buffet products suitable for our country. Filipinos and Thais also share the same obsession of whitening and enhancing products, that’s why we think it’s the perfect brand to bring to the Philippines.”
Not to be missed is Beauty Buffet’s chef logo that highlights the creativity and delicious concoctions that only Beauty Buffet offers. Where else could you find the Nolasco sisters’ favorites: Goat’s Milk Facial Lotion, Tofu Lotion and Bath, Milk Sleeping Packs and Avocado Face Scrubs? Beauty Buffet’s slogan, “The Most Delicious Beauty Shop in Town,” really lives up to its name.
“Not only do our products smell great since they were made from actual food ingredients,” Cheska Nolasco says. “The natural components are optimized to benefit the skin. If we watch what we eat, we should be meticulous on what we put on our skin as well.”
“Our dream to share Beauty Buffet to the rest of the Filipinos is now a reality and we are glad that Beauty Buffet is becoming a player the beauty retail industry. We are proud to say that our products can cater to specific beauty and skincare solutions in very affordable prices,” adds Celina.
The four beauty lines
Beauty Buffet has successfully extended its customer reach from the young to the young at heart with its four main lines. “We believe the four lines under Beauty Buffet can help people truly identify what their skin needs,” adds Celina Nolasco. “Furthermore, our vast variety of products will give consumers specific beauty solutions in very affordable prices.”
Host Janeena calls on the brand ambassadors to join her on stage, with each lady representing one of four Beauty Buffet categories.
The Bakery: Sweet & Delicious
A cosmetic and makeup brand with that is well-loved by tweens and for anyone who is a makeup newbie. Our younger clientele can feel safe with this hypoallergenic line that’s also good for sensitive skin. The colorful designs and packaging add to the excitement of visiting the shops.
Brand ambassador and Star Magic actress Alexa Ilacad shares, “I personally love the makeup items from The Bakery as it’s very easy to play around with, all are hypoallergenic, and also its packaging is uber cute!” Her favorites include the Cannoli Duo Gloss (double ended lip gloss), Cupcake Buddy Shadow, Bavarois Duo Blusher, Pandoro Highlighter Stick, and Choco Stick Lipstick.
Gino McCray: The Professional Makeup
With brand ambassador Raiza Contawi
Another cosmetic line for those who want to get more serious about makeup, even professional makeup artists can’t get enough of these. A lifesaver and a must-buy is their makeup remover that removes all-day waterproof mascaras in an instant.
Beauty vlogger Raiza Contawi is the chosen brand ambassador for this line. “Gino McCray products are the closest to my heart and just imagine my excitement when I was chosen as the ambassador for this line. My top favorites are the Extreme Control Powder Foundation, Eyeshadow Powders, Triangular Brow Pencil, Matte Lipsticks, and the Liquid Foundation. I love that the base products have the right shades suitable for Filipino skin tones. Since it’s humid in the country, we can keep the freshness of our makeup look by setting the liquid foundation with the powder foundation using a puff or a powder brush. The triangular brow pencil has good color payoff, so it’s easy and quick to use. To achieve natural brows, make sure to use short strokes with this product. Lastly, the lipsticks have playful shades that are beautiful to create gradient or artistic lips with. Use a brush to mix and apply shades, and don’t forget to experiment and enjoy.”
Lansley: Beauty and Well-Being
A skincare line that maintains and prevents with minimal effort. Our star products include facial care products, dark spot corrector, and anti-wrinkle creams.
Beauty blogger and mom-of-two Shari Macainag shares why she loves Lansley, “Lansley has a range of effective skincare serums at the best price. And it’s not watered down skincare unlike other affordable skincare ranges to make you buy more. Lansley’s serums are packed with active ingredients that are sure to work. If you read the label, you’d see that their actives are part of the Top 3 which means they contain high amounts of it.”
Asked what her favorites are, she shares: “Number one forever is their Vitamin C Serum that really helped fade my pimple and acne marks faster. It has both Vitamin C and Niacinamide that work in tandem to brighten and refine the skintone! To think it’s only P1,069 which is already reasonable for a Vitamin C serum. I apply the Vitamin C Cream after the serum to lock in the serum and moisturize the face at the same time. The Vitamin C Eye Cream brightens the under eye area and diminishes those pesky late night dark circles! I use this after the serum and cream (I don’t put the cream on my under eye area). I also apply Beauty Lip Balm generously at night and wake up with the softest lips. Since I wear a lot of matte lipsticks, I have the driest lips – Saharan levels even. I use this to prep and unlike other balms that leave that tacky, oily film, this does not! And lastly, I love the Spot Treatment Gel; it’s so affordable and I love how it instantly fizzes out angry breakouts! I use this on pimples and cystic acne.”
Scentio: Inspired by Nature
A complete body care range from head to toe. Sun block lotions, body butter and sleeping packs that come in delicious flavors are too good to resist!
Brand ambassador Christiana Collings fits the Scentio profile. She shares, “I was so happy when they assigned the Scentio line to me! As a self-confessed skincare addict, I love that Scention has a huge variety of products that can cater to different skin problems. My top five faves are the Milk Plus Whitening Facial Foam, Collagen Mineral Water Spray, Ultimate Sun Protection for the face that has SPF 50, Double Milk Facial Emulsion and the Avocado Body Scrub. I use the Collagen Mineral Water when I’m on the go and need to freshen up.”
What to expect
Beauty Buffet shops’ walls are decorated in pretty pinks and pristine whites, and are filled with a wide variety of affordable personal care products catering to just about anyone who wants to look good and feel good. Take your pick from their wide selection of nourishing skincare and body care products that boasts of natural extracts as their key ingredients: shower cream, shampoo, conditioner, facial cream, body lotion, body scrub, hand and foot cream are just some of the many products you will get addicted to.
Integrating the concepts of beauty and food, Beauty Buffet made a grand entrance in its home country, Thailand in 2006. With more than 230 retail shops all over Asia, it continues to come out strong in the beauty retail landscape, garnering huge followings in Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar, and Vietnam with its wide selection of affordable and high-quality products.
With a wide range of delicious offerings and competitive pricing, there is no doubt that Beauty Buffet will surely be the country’s newest cult favorite, and with good reason. Nicole Nolasco explains, “We believe that having good skin boosts confidence. We would like to encourage Filipinos to start taking good care of their skin, and Beauty Buffet is here to help them with that.” Edgar Lim shares, “With over 600 product lines and its continuous introduction of new items, Beauty Buffet is unlike any brand or store we have in the Philippines. Expect to see more Beauty Buffet shops in your neighborhood within the year.”
Beauty Buffet is located at Uptown Mal in Fort Bonifacio. Glorietta 3 in Makati, and Ayala Malls The 30th in Pasig. Soon to open: Vertis North in Quezon City; Landmark, Trinoma, Quezon City.
