Superstar cosplayer Alodia Gosiengfiao dabbles in makeup and releases her first and only collaboration with cult makeup brand NYX Professional Makeup. The Alodia Collection is a makeup kit that’s the stuff of beauty fantasies: a complete collection of NYX Professional Makeup favorites perfect for everyone who want to dip their hands in full-on, everyday makeup.
Alodia Gosiengfiao is the country’s premiere cosplay artist. After gaining a following within the industry—being a star staple in cosplay conventions, gaining a slew of international appearances and bagging several magazine covers—Alodia has since expanded her fanbase as she’s dabbled into TV hosting, acting and singing. Products in the Alodia Collection come in a special box with artwork designed by Alodia herself. “My inspiration was Japanese anime art. Those with big bright eyes, pink cheeks and cute lips,” Alodia described her artwork.
Alodia isn’t only an expert in the art of creative costumes—she’s been crafting makeup tutorial videos in her Youtube account as early as 2011. Her desire to use makeup as a tool to transform herself into who she wants to be led her to be handpicked by NYX Professional Makeup as the first Filipina to curate a special collection with the Los Angeles-founded brand. Asked about the role of makeup in her everyday life, Alodia said, “For me makeup is art. It enhances your features and you can play around with it to match your look of the day.” The Alodia Collection is an all-in-one kit that represents the cosplayer’s playful, creative style. A six-piece makeup ensemble, the Alodia Collection is a special mix of NYX Professional Makeup products Alodia curated herself.
Alodia is thrilled to share this makeup collection with her fans, “I feel very lucky and honored to be able to work with an iconic brand with amazing products! Really excited with our collaboration and looking forward to see how people would use the kit!”
Bought as a bundle, the Alodia Collection retails for P2499, available first at Lazada—that’s P601 saved if products are bought separately. On her Facebook page and at the NYX Professional Makeup Philippines Facebook page, Alodia shares a Get Ready With Me makeup tutorial, where she uses the Alodia Kit along with her sister Ashley.
