BeautyMNL just turned 1—hip, hip, hooray!—and some of our favorite Filipinas were sweet enough to shower us with some birthday love. (Speaking of birthday love: have you explored our Anniversary Sale yet? You should, beautiful. You really, really should.)

Watch this lovely video greeting from Laureen Uy (she’s our new Brand Ambassador, if you haven’t heard!):

Our first-ever columnist Karen Pamintuan wrote us the most heartfelt note:
“I remember the first time I met the BeautyMNL team. I thought to myself, ‘I want to be part of this!’ Fun, bubbly, lovable, and absolutely wonderful people are what support, build, and make the brand of BeautyMNL what it is today. So not only are you getting amazing products, but you’re also getting real people who are passionate about what they do and what they deliver to you. That’s why I’m so proud to be part of the BeautyMNL family and I’m wishing them a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY and many, many more to come!”

Rosanna Aranaz kept it short and sweet: “Happy birthday, BeautyMNL! Here’s to another year of lipstick kisses! <3”
(XOXO, right back at you!)

We basked in the compliments from Liz Lanuzo, high priestess of Project Vanity: “Happy birthday, BeautyMNL! Thanks for bringing such well-curated products from all over the world right here in the Philippines. We have so many nicely-priced options available now thanks to your site. Also love that you have an informative magazine that shares all these secret beauty tips and tips <3 Wishing you a bigger, better year!”

Say Artillero said it with a cute pic:
Her caption: “HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY, BEAUTYMNL! :) I wish you many, many years more of being an awesome avenue for all things beauty for Filipinas! We love you!”

Hot momma Shari Macainag of The Misty Mom mixed in a little local love with her birthday love:
“Cheers to one year of celebrating the modern Filipina woman—confident in her own skin and beautiful in her own unique way! Here’s to many more years of inspiring women to be their best every day. Happy anniversary, BeautyMNL! So proud to be a part of this team!”

New momma Lyca Puno-Roa took time out of her whirlwind schedule to give us a holler:
“Happy, happy first birthday, BeautyMNL! It has also been a year since I first started contributing to such an innovative and fun concept. I am beyond honored to be part of a team that celebrates real, natural beauty!”

Our M-A-J-O-R girlcrush, Nikita McElroy, gave us her best model smize…
…and topped it off with this: “Happy birthday, BeautyMNL! One down, more to go. The first of many happy years in the business! Wishing you continued success and more beautiful moments. Warmest wishes on your special day, and lots of love from your model insider!”

What a way to end the week! We. Feel. The Love. #TGIF
