Take it from your fellow customers!

1. Benefit Ka-BROW!, P1,400 “I have zero eyebrows and very oily face but this product sticks to me like second skin. I pair this with my K-Palette 24h liquid brow pen for eyebrows ready to survive the war! No kidding! And no eyebrow can survive my whole without smudge and fading. I slight wet my brow brush to make the pigment more intense and long lasting. Don’t worry about the price, it contains enough product to last you a lifetime.” – Danica

2. L’Oreal Paris Lucent Magique Cushion Blush, P900 “I got this in the shade Rose Affair. Really love how natural and glowy the color is on me. It doesn’t cake and gives me a flush like I just came out of the gym. It takes some getting used to to apply this at the beginning, so apply with a light hand. But once I got the hang of it, it was easy. This doesn’t have any scent and can be layered if you want a darker shade. Love it!” – Jacqueline

3. Ecotools Day to Night Set, P1,150 “I have been looking for a brush set that is cheap, of good quality, compact and I found it all in this set! It caters to all my daily make-up essentials, nothing too intimidating. PLUS, it comes with a pouch so I can carry it in my travels. What’s great is everything you will need is in there. No other bulky make-up boxes. They are also okay even after cleaning. This was such a great buy, 5 brushes + a pouch, not over Php 1.5k.” – Kathrina

4. GT Cosmetics GT Whitening Deodorant, P98 “This product was introduced to me by a friend who has the same problem like I do- dark underarms. I started using it for almost a month now. I have tried alot of whitening deos all my life, even organic ones but by far, this is the only deo that made my underarms lighter and kept it dry all day.” – Ira

5. PRO STUDIO Beauty Exclusives Eyebrow Razor (2-pack), now on sale at P85 (limited time only) “I love how affordable it is, compared to the one I saw in other online shops that costs 135 pesos. I love the colors. Cleans excess hair brow well. I gave the other one to my friend. Very very essential to kilay goals!” – Kathlea

6. iMagic High Definition Primer, now on sale at P890 (limited time only) “I found this primer affordable so I gave it a shot, and I’m super happy I did. Just a small drop can cover a significant area on my face. It instantly covers my pores and my skin suddenly becomes an even canvass for makeup. I used to have creases on the face from too much makeup but this prevented this as well. It’s a must-have for any makeup junkie! “ – Melinda

7. Instituto Español Skin Deep Care Cream, now on sale at P424 (limited time only) “This is the only lotion that can deeply moisturize my very dry feet. I tried to use petroleum jelly, VCO, body butter from known brands and other moisturizing lotions available before but none of them worked in solving my dry skin problem. So, I’m really thankful that BeautyMNL sells this product.” – Haidee

8. Olivos Turkish Clove (2 Bars), P279 “This Olivos Soap is so huge and heavy (at least in proportion to my small hand), that I have to split it into two. I’ve been using this clove - olive soap for more than a week, and it’s still big and firm. I think I will save a lot on soap this time because it seems to be long lasting. I use this everyday on my face and body and it leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth and lovely. My skin doesn’t feel tight at all. It’s good that this soap contains clove oil. I’ve read that clove has medicinal and anti-fungal properties. I also like the soap’s scent and texture–woodsy and fresh. It makes my everyday bathing experience invigorating because of its rich lather which cleanses skin effectively.” – Monette

9. W7 Absolute Lashes, P449 “This is my first mascara and used it for about three times now and it’s great. It makes my lashes longer and darker and lifts it up a bit. I used it all day but it didn’t flake and it’s easy to remove. However, it does not volumize. It’s really not an issue for me because I like natural-looking lashes. Would definitely stick to it, it is cheap yet very impressive.” – Fatima

10. Dove Bar Soap White Beauty, P48 “This soap is super gentle and moisturizing plus it doesn’t contain any harmful ingredients. I also love the mild clean scent it has. In fact, it’s so safe to use that this is what I use to clean my makeup brushes and it’s successful at getting all the gunk out!” – Raya
