- Anne Curtis opened her first boutique for blk Cosmetics
- The actress-host opened up about competing with friend Vice Ganda
- Vice also has his own cosmetics brand
Dear friends and It's Showtime co-hosts Anne Curtis and Vice Ganda launched their respective beauty lines in September 2017.
Anne revealed through ABS-CBN News that both celebrities were taken by surprise when the other announced their cosmetics business.
"Actually nagkagulatan na lang kami na parang, 'Meron ka ding cosmetic line? Oo. Kailan ka magla-launch? Ako itong ano na. Ako din!'" said Anne.
The actress opened the first stall of blk Cosmetics at Trinoma Mall on March 24, Saturday.
Both her and Vice first launched their products through online shops and select department stores.
Vice named his as Vice Cosmetics.
Fans, naturally, compared the two brands against each other.
But the long-time friends just brushed it aside. Instead, they promote each other's line together.
"Minsan bawal kami mag-promote sa Showtime pero ang galing ni Vice. Madalas nase-segue niya so sinasabi niya pati blk," said Anne.
"The local industry is actually booming. If you look into the make-up kit of one girl, it doesn't have only one brand. It has all different brands. It goes to show that there is room for everyone," added Anne.
