MANILA — The country’s most prestigious catwalk bore witness to a fusion of the greatest creations from one of Philippine fashion’s biggest legend and the richest, most vibrant hues from the world’s most trusted beauty expert.

The finale show of the Philippine Fashion Week Holiday 2011 made fashion history as L’Oréal Paris presented the last collection – and the final masterpieces – of the late fashion maven Louie Mamengo complemented by the leading beauty expert’s newest lip color lines.

L’Oréal Paris, the official beauty partner of Philippine Fashion Week, has pulled out all the stops to showcase this season’s hottest looks that perfectly translated the creative visions of the participating designers to the runway.

For the finale show, L’Oréal Paris created a soft, natural look that complements Mamengo’s comeback collection that displays the late designer’s Parisian sense and style and his fashion point-of-view that is so very New York.

His final creations are classics with a modern twist, exuding casual elegance, sophistication and femininity.

For his "final bow," guests were treated to a spectacular parade of masterpieces dominated by the classic shade of black in the finest silk fabrics such as shantung, taffeta, organdy and in exquisite laces and knit jerseys.

Each piece was masterfully crafted and tailored, bringing to mind Mamengo’s sophisticated taste and fashion genius.

The collection, indeed, was Mamengo at his very best.

For this extraordinary finale runway show, L’Oréal Paris complemented Mamengo’s swan song with a chic, playful look that reflects the youthful yet elegant flair of his creations.

For the face, L’Oréal Paris used Base Magique as primer then applied True Match Liquid Foundation.

Hints of peach and pink will be the shade of the look using True Match Blush 114 Pink Grapefruit.

For the eyes, L’Oréal Paris went for a clean eye make-up using Open Eyes Pro Smoky Brown, complemented by Curl Impact Collagene for the lashes and Brow Stylist for the brows.

Finally for the lips, the rosy pink shades from the new Color Riche Intense and Color Riche NutriShine lip color lines take the spotlight.

The two new exciting shades from the Color Riche franchise, Color Riche Intense and Color Riche NutriShine give two different offers for the lips: Color Riche Intense for a loud burst of color and Color Riche NutriShine for a sheer and sultry finish.

The bold colors of Mamengo’s designs were enhanced even more by the intense shades of Color Riche Intense, which boasts of highly pigmented lipsticks that give full coverage and high moisture while providing long wear with minimal touch ups.

The soft, sophisticated side of Mamengo’s creations was captured by the healthy burst of color from Color Riche NutriShine which nourishes like lip balm and shines like lip gloss, with a combination of Royal Jelly and Shea Butter to moisturize the lips while keeping them naturally healthy and super shiny.
