YouTuber Viy Cortez on becoming Ever Bilena's newest brand ambassador: "Sobrang hindi ako makapaniwala, sobrang blessing siya ni Lord nung nalaman ko na kinukuha nila ako. Napadasal ako na, ‘Lord, grabe…’ Napakalaking brand para mapansin ako, talagang laking pasasalamat."

Viy Cortez has achieved her longtime dream of becoming an ambassador of a beauty brand.

The 24-year-old social media influencer and YouTube content creator was recently launched as the newest face of Ever Bilena cosmetics.

In an exclusive interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) last September 16 via Zoom, Viy said she could hardly believe that the brand wanted to add her to their list of celebrity endorsers.

She said, "Sobrang ano [hindi makapaniwala], sabi ko, ‘Totoo po ba? Baka nagkamali kayo ng in-email, Viy Cortez po ako.’

"Sobrang hindi ako makapaniwala, sobrang blessing siya ni Lord nung nalaman ko na kinukuha nila ako. Napadasal ako na, ‘Lord, grabe…’

"Napakalaking brand para mapansin ako, talagang laking pasasalamat."

Viy initially rose to fame as the girlfriend of CongTV, a well-known vlogger in the gaming community.

She has since made a name for herself as a content creator with 1.5 million followers on Instagram and 3.93 million followers on YouTube.

BEAUTY GIRL

Like most Pinays, Viy never really considered herself as a "beauty expert" but just a "normal girl" who loves make-up.

In fact, when asked about beauty hacks, Viy said, "Sa totoo lang, wala akong mga special na tricks kasi kung makikita mo iyong mga picture ko mapa-graduation, mapa-debut, mapa-birthday o kahit anong okasyon pa iyan, same lang ang make-up ko.

"Hindi ako masyado marunong, pero ang hindi lang mawawala sa akin ngayon, kahit naka-mask, lipstick, at pangkilay."

Quality and value for money are important to Viy when it comes to her favorite make-up products.

One of the products she loves is the EB Advance Glow Out Highlighter. It comes in two shades called Strobe and Candlelight, each priced at PHP299.

Viy said, "Lahat ng kulay niyan, bago pa nila ako kunin na ambassador, ginagamit ko na iyan. Alam mo yung feeling na pag tatawid ka, parang ikaw iyong signal light sa sobrang tingkad, sis, ganun talaga. Sobrang perfect sa presyo niya, ganun iyong quality."

Ever Bilena All Day Liquid Foundation—which has four shades called Silk, Porcelain, Oriental, and Olivecomes second on her list. This is available for PH225.

Viy told PEP.ph, "Iyong price niya, hindi ko aakalain na ganun iyong quality. Iyong foundation nila, talagang full coverage sa presyong iyon.

"Kung iaano mo siya sa ibang brand, mahal iyong ganun quality. Pero sa Ever Bilena, nagawa nilang ganun iyong quality 'tapos mababa iyong price."

Her last pick is the EB Advance Shadow Stick Cream Eyeshadow. These cream eyeshadow pencils are available for PHP195.

She said, "Gusto ko din iyong mga eyeshadow cream, iyong cream na nasa stick... Mahilig din kasi ako sa ma-glitter, e."

HER NEXT GOAL

Now that she has achieved one of her biggest dreams, Viy is hoping that her own cosmetics brand called Viy Line Cosmetics can do a collaboration with Ever Bilena.

Viy said, "Since may cosmetics din ako, feeling ko marami din akong matututunan. So sobrang perfect niya talaga."

The vlogger added, "Gusto ko magparinig, sana Viy Line x Ever Bilena! Gusto mo iyong sapilitan? Pero maraming salamat, kung sakali.

"Pinipilit ko talaga kasi kapag na-push itong Viy Line x Ever Bilena, ang laking tulong niya sa akin kasi siyempre, mas maraming nakakakilala sa Ever Bilena kaysa sa Viy Line so napakalaking tulong.

"And marami silang produktong magaganda na wala ako kasi kadalasan ng Viy Line cosmetics is sa lips pa lang. Hindi pa kami nakaka-ano ng ibang produkto so baka naman!"
