Holika Holika opens in Manila!

Holika Holika is finally in the Philippines! I was invited to the intimate blogger launch last week and spent a good 4 hours inside the store. The launch was hosted by Jon Uy of Blogger Circles, and I also met Mrs. Belinda Valentino, President of Anibela Corporation and master franchisor of Holika Holika in the Philippines.

The first Holika Holika store is located in SM Fairview and the team will open up more stores before the year ends. Here's hoping they open a store in the SM North and/or SM Megamall soon because SM Fairview is just too far for me :)

Here are photos of the store (I have a lot!), enjoy!

oodles of nail polish :D
what an interesting mascara wand!

If you find SM Fairview to be too far, Holika Holika also accepts orders online :)


  1. the mascara wand is like the Givenchy Phenomen'eyes one I think? would be great for the inner/outer corners :)

    1. Yes similar to that one! I tried Holika's (the non-waterproof one) and it did not smear or smudge for hours. The Givenchy Phenomen'eyes looks like sea urchins naman -_-

  2. i am definitely going back to purchase their black caviar and wine theraphy products! it was great seeing you at the event kira :D hope to see you more often~~

    1. I want to go back also, if only for that Oil Queen Cotton Powder :D So nice to see you again, too! I hope to be able to attend more events soon :)

  3. Around how much are the nail polishes?

    1. If I remember correctly, they're around P95 each :)

  4. Their nail polish collection really got me! Love the colors and, yes, their mascara has a very interesting wand. I tried it and it works well for the lower lashes ;)
