1. Benefit Precisely, My Brow Pencil, P1,200 “This Benefit Precisely, My Brow Pencil is my newest favorite eye brow pencil. I have this in the shade Medium 03 and I am in love with the shade and with formula of this pencil. I love how the shade is just the perfect taupe for me - not too warm nor too cool. I like that the formula is perfectly waxed and it is very pigmented as well.” - Maria

2. Heimish Dailism Eye Palette, P1,649 “I used to think that Heimish is a great skin care brand, but now I know that it is an awesome makeup brand too! I love this eye palette because it is so versatile and convenient to use. I use it to create dramatic and day to day looks. :)” - Bea

3. Ellana Loose Powder Multipurpose Pigment, P199 “I’m in love with these! I use them mainly as highlighting accents for my eye makeup because an all-matte eye look is just too bland for me. The saleslady who recommended these to me also said I could use this as highlighter. I love the colors these come in and I love how easy it is to blend with other products and onto your skin. You can achieve so many looks even with just a few jars of it. It may look like 199 pesos is too much for a small jar but considering the color payoff, I’m sure it’s hard to go through an entire jar within even a whole year of use. Like I said, it’s extremely pigmented and the color payoff is insane so be careful before you pack product onto your face.” - Reena

4. Holika Holika Jewel-Light Waterproof Eyeliner, P220 “The only con about this is that it still needs to be sharpened. However, the formula is really great. It is smudge proof once it sets, delivers full color on one swipe, and has really cute, glittery sheen. I got the blue one, it’s really pretty in person. I just wear it a lot because it complements my eyes and it shines wonderfully. I love this color, I can marry it!” - Kimmy

5. Red Cherry Lashes #523, P200 “These lashes are VAVAVOOM lashes. They look so pretty on and I just want to wear it everyday no matter how full and long they are. Even though this falsies are so long and full it still somehow looks natural. I AM IN LOVEEEEE with these lashes. Probably my favorite one out of all my Red Cherry lashes!!! And don’t get me started on how soft these are! TOTALLY WORTH THE MONEY!” - Dara

6. iSkin LipAddict Lip Plumper, P2,000 (Buy 1, Take 1) “This product really plumps up the lips. It also has a vast color range to choose from but once applied, it will still look natural and moist on the lips. I usually apply this right after putting on my lipstick because it makes my lipstick color look better and my lips more plump. But I also use this alone if I want a natural look. Be careful to keep the product clean at all times cause it can get messy after some time.” - Nicole

7. Detail Stannic Matte Lipstick, P245 “I love, love this lipstick! The color ‘Rigel’ is stunning, I got so many compliments the first time I wore it. What I like about it is how it fades evenly and did i mention it’s a METALLIC MATTE LIPSTICK. Oh my gosh, it’s so smooth and creamy that it’s so easy to apply! Like it would take a lot to screw up the application. It’s local too! What I dont like is the smell, but for a product this good, I’ll bear with it. Price is so good too! Great product and fair price. Just get this lippie!” - Nicole

8. Pixi by Petra Strobe and Bronze: Glow and Bronze, P1,300 I love how glowing it makes me whenever I use this product. I was hesitant to buy it at first because I don’t think I need 3 shades of contour and highlighter but I bought it anyway. (Got mine from the mall.) I love how you can easily combine the shades to achieve a more natural finish. And when I’m too lazy for contouring, I use the highlighters to give me a subtle glow. I didn’t regret this impulsive buy.” - Lorie

9. Sleek Makeup Highlighting Palette, P875 “I bought mine in Cleopatra’s Kiss months ago. I’m the type of person who likes to hoard makeup just to try out other brands. I have collected numerous highlighters, but I ALWAYS go back to this! I don’t even mean to do it. Whenever I feel like my other highlighters are too “natural-looking,” I top it off with the powder highlighter in this palette and I’d feel 100x better! This is just stunning and it blends beautifully! Not patchy or hard to work with at all! PLUS, I think it’s worth the price as you get 4 different highlighters in a pan. Different colors, different formulas. There’s a reason why this is so raved about and loved. This is a MUST in your collection!” - Ana

10. Imagic Baked Mineralized Blush, P270 “This blush features hints of shimmer that gives you a gorgeous luminous glow. Great for highlighting or achieving a nice natural flush of color on your cheeks. Color is baked and pigmented, can go from subtle to a bit more shimmer depending on application. Got #3, which is a bit more peachy and works when going for a subtle bronze-y look. I love the luminous effect! Plus this product is quite a steal for the price! Worth a try!” - Carrie
