It’s been over a year since Vice Cosmetics first launched on BeautyMNL, and it’s been nothing but good vibes all the way. We’ve loved their lip kits, lip tints, and signature lippies, so much so that we can’t help but crave more from Vice Ganda’s eponymous beauty brand. After all, their lip products have prettified our pouts like no other. Surely they’ve got more aces up their slang-slinging sleeves, right? Well, Santa must be listening, because our wishes just came true in time for Christmas. Meet the NEW Vice Cosmetics Aura Face Powders: the only blush, glow, and contour set you’ll need for your annual holiday glow-up. The collection features a selection of shades that are impressively inclusive, toeing the line between bombastic and delightfully demure. Plus, at just P145 a pop, you could buy a whole stack of these for yourself and all your friends. Thanks for the stocking stuffers, Vice!

THE VICE COSMETICS AURA BLUSH, GLOW, AND CONTOUR

The Aura Blush (P145) is a soft, buildable powder blush that glides on silky-smooth with zero fallout. It has a very subtle sheen that can easily be buffed out for a totally matte finish, and comes in a compact case that’s small enough to fit in your going-out purse. Its shades range from brick nude and peach to vibrant rose and sultry plum, so mestizas, morenas, and everyone in between is sure to find something that works for them. Pro-tip: go bold with your holiday looks with colors you may not usually go for (we love Manyika!)—you might just find your new favorite blush!
The Aura Glow (P145) is equally smooth and versatile, with a formula that lets you build up your highlight to your desired level of vibrancy. It’s so lightweight, in fact, you can even dust it all over your face for an enviable soft-focus glow that’ll make you appear lit from within.

It comes in flattering shades of gold, rose gold, and champagne that will match anyone. Mix up these shimmers for a look that’ll turn heads at every festive function you end up in this season. Go for gold, girl!
The Aura Contour (P145) rounds out the bunch, and we’d say it’s the ideal powder for contouring newbies. Like the other two, its formula is easy to work with, so buffing and blending won’t be an issue. You can go for a full glam, red carpet-ready chisel, or a soft sculpt that brings your best features forward.

Depending on your undertone, these shades could even double as a bronzer in a pinch! Just be sure not to overdue it, or you may risk looking a little grey.

Below, we swatch three of the blushes (Shalah, Byucon, and Title) just to show ‘em off on different skin tones, and reco a few other flattering shades. Let it be said, though, that any of these is bound to look good on anyone—they’re that wearable. In any case, Vice would tell you it’s all about your aura, and we’re 100% with him.
