Inspire with Passion: Rissa x NBS


Rissa Mananquil Trillo is a beauty columnist, model, and entrepreneur. She co-founded Happy Skin cosmetics, an original brand of skin-caring makeup.

One thing you might not know about Rissa is that she loves Japan. “Maybe I was Japanese in my past life. And that’s why Happy Skin is made there, too,” Rissa shares.

Inspired by her love for Japan and its classic origami, Rissa has created a limited edition collaboration with National Book Store. Guided by the modern yet timeless qualities of origami, she hopes this will inspire you to unfold your passions today.

Here are the three items included in the #RissaxNBS collection:

Sleek and stylish, these triple zip flat pouches are a handy addition to any woman’s handbag. Use them to store your little trinkets, and to remind yourself to be different. At just P369, they’re a steal!

For people struck with wanderlust, or those who simply want to get (and stay) organized, the origami organizer is for you! It has multiple compartments for sorting all your stuff into, and it can also fold into a compact shape for handling and transport. At P649, it’s definitely worth it.

The smallest of the collection just might be the cutest. This pyramid coin purse is just P199, yet it’s unique, elegant, and certainly useful, too.
