Every college girl has stumbled upon a holy grail product at least once in her life. Whether it’s a lipstick shade that never failed to add a pop of color to her face after pulling an all-nighter, a conditioner that transformed her messy buns, or nail polish that survived days of nervous biting, Calyxta continues to bring these game-changers to ladies all over in an easy and accessible way!
As a testament, here are five university students on their top Calyxta picks and how they’ve been incorporating them to their busy lifestyles.
Mandy Romero, Georgetown University
Product: Kat Von D Tattoo Liner – Trooper
Alternative: Malissa Kiss Eyeliner
“From morning classes to an evening party with friends, I learned that a good eyeliner can make me look less “studied all night” and more “energized 24/7.” Being constantly on-the-go, I love Kat Von D’s long-lasting Tattoo Liner as it’s the easiest and quickest to use from all the other brands I’ve tried.”
Nina Belardo, University of the Philippines Open University (UPOU)
“The Urban Decay NAKED 3 palette really helps in my college life by bringing back the life into my face after hours of studying, taking away attention from my dark circles (HAHA)! It also helps me look more put together and ready for the day by giving me that “trying-but-not-trying” kind of vibe.”
Jewel Limjoco, De La Salle University (DLSU)
“The Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask from Innisfree is definitely one of my go-to face masks whenever I have a bad skin day, because it leaves my skin looking supple and fresh. It already cleans out and minimizes my pores just after one use. This mask is a quick spa treatment for me especially when I’m needing that extra boost of confidence from all the college stress and all-nighters. I literally use this while doing my schoolwork, and it certainly saves so much time for a quick little at home facial.”
Jana Legaspi, Ateneo De Manila University (ADMU)
Product: NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick
“The shade, Soft-Spoken, is my go to—especially on busy days. I think that it’s perfect for on-the-go girls like me, because the shade is not too poppy for a school environment. It can also be glam for when I need to go to events or meetings straight from school. The creamy texture doesn’t feel heavy on my lips, and doesn’t need frequent retouch”
Bianca Lingad, University de Santo Tomas (UST)
“This is the perfect product for people who have morning to night classes like me. My makeup still stays on despite all the movement within the day, and the time frame. Plus, it not only sets my makeup, but primes my face before application. Bonus points for having a very gentle scent as compared to other setting sprays that tend to smell like hairspray.”
