There are certain beauty products that attract such a following, they鈥檙e basically celebrities in their own right: the rose gold Smith & Cult polish that sold out in record time or Pat McGrath鈥檚 bestsellers that evoked such a reaction, she had to bring it back. One college student loved her highlighter SO much, it made a debut in her graduation photo.

A post shared by Janssen Mendoza (@ssenmendoza) on

Polytechnic University of the Philippines graduate Janssen Mendoza posted her graduation pic on Instagram with the caption: 鈥淍anastasiabeverlyhills is lifeeeee,鈥漚nd makeup junkies from all over the world are loving it. YAAAAAS, girl!


And we know you鈥檙e wondering which Anastasia product the college grad is head over heels for. That would be the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit ($40), which already has quite a following.

Mendoza did admit that while she wasn鈥檛 the first one to do this (others have shown their love for makeup in their grad photos too), she wanted to do her own version. The 19-year-old, who works as a makeup artist on the side, told Seventeen magazine that she hopes the photo will work to break down stereotypes.鈥淚 posted this picture to show that I could pursue my love for makeup while excelling in academics,鈥 Mendoza said. 鈥淚鈥檓 a full scholar and a candidate for hours. I just want to prove to others that I can do both.鈥

Hear, hear, girl!
