We all know what buyer’s remorse feels like: a rush of adrenaline followed by intense regret. But you know what? There’s no shame in succumbing to the hype! Some beauty products are just way too good to pass up—like today’s Top Reviews, for instance. These 10 cult-faves are almost always sold out. Snag a piece before you’re back on the waitlist!

1. Real Techniques Starter Set, P1150
“A very good set for those starting out and experimenting with their eye make-up! The brushes are easy to handle and manageable. The bristles are very soft too! The packaging is very nice and the fact that it doubles as a stand is very convenient! Very worth the price and would definitely buy again if needed be!” - Cigrid

2. Biore Cleansing Oil, P320
“I first got my Biore Cleansing Oil from one of BeautyMNL’s freebies. I have been so hooked on double cleansing and the 4-2-4 cleansing that I didn’t think twice about trying this cleansing oil. The first time I used it, I immediately fell in love with the fruity scent; it was apple and very light. It was very effective in removing makeup and clearing up the dirt on my face. I can see the pores almost all tidied up. Then just before using the foam cleanser, I would rinse it first with water and would check my face closely to the mirror. I just love the clarity of my face. I’m definitely buying this again!” - Joyce

3. Laneige Water Sleeping Mask, now on sale at P980 (limited time only)
“The hype is real! This cream really feels like a good night’s sleep. It is so cool, which gives it a relaxing and soothing effect on the face when applied. It smells really, really good too! Definitely does the job well in locking in moisture as the last layer of my 10-step skincare routine. It is super moisturizing, and you wake up with soft, smooth, and supple skin. It’s like an overnight skin renewing cream.” - Silvia

4. Eye of Horus Goddess Pencil, P990
“This is an eye pencil that doesn’t really act like a pencil. Its consistency is as if a kohl and gel liner had a baby – something more emollient than kohl but slightly more dry than a gel. It glides on and blends out easily if you prefer a slightly smudgier look, but once it sets, it’s there to stay. All the pencils are beautifully pigmented, and the color selection is pretty fun. Definitely one of those products where, while it’s in a bit of a higher price point, you do get what you pay for.” - Gabbie

5. CosRX One Step Pimple Clear Pads, P900
“I have oily, sensitive, acne-prone skin so I really have to choose products wisely. I was really happy that I picked this up months ago (despite forgetting about it on my vanity table) and used it again when I was recovering from having bad breakouts. My pimples have significantly lessened now and are rather small compared to the cystic ones I got before. I’m really happy with how it works! I find it to be more effective when I use it right after washing my face at night and letting my skin absorb it for a good 5 minutes before proceeding with my routine.” - Dennise

6. Makeup World Pucker Up Matte Lipstick, P159
“So glad I found these beautiful lippies! Read previous reviews & true to what most of them said, these are gorgeous! So nice to the lips yet not drying or cracking. And on top of ‘em all, they’re great steals for us ladies because of how gentle they are to the lips and their gorge color selection. I got Prague & Havana to first try on because most of my lippies come in lighter & neutral shades so I wanted to add variety. I’ve also been wanting to purchase lippies in darker shades. Prague is so easy to apply. It just glides on your lips. Though these don’t look like the mattes from your usual ultra matte liquid lippies, but I like the result after application. It is a shine-free matte, yet hydrating. Same goes for Havana, though I had to swipe more than once to get an even shade, after 2 or few more swipes the color’s exactly what I’ve been wanting to add to my lippies collection. MakeUp World’s Matte Lipstick surely made me feel more beautiful & super lucky! Now, I’m lovin’ BeautyMNL because you made me a happy-1st-time-shopper here!” - Redda

7. It’s Skin Power 10 Formula PO Effector, P390
“This is the only pore-tightening serum I’ve ever tried and that speaks volumes. It’s so effective that I don’t feel the need to try other similar products. It decreases the size of my pores immediately after use, providing a smooth and even base for makeup. The lasting results are quite fast as well. My pores are significantly smaller in only about half a bottle after. And as if all these positive things weren’t enough, this serum also mattifies and controls oil production. What they say is true, “good things come in small sizes” and sometimes in affordable prices, too.” - Joyce

8. April Skin Magic Snow Cushion 2.0, P1249
“I finally give in to the April Skin hype and gave this one a try. After my first application, I actually panicked because when I looked at the mirror, my face looked 2 shades lighter than my overall complexion (bought the #23 natural beige). But after a few minutes, it looked like I had no foundation on. My skin had a beautiful glow, looked brighter, right amount of being dewy, and it did made some of my blemishes unnoticeable. And I didn’t build much layer of the product to achieve the look. A light press goes a long way and so does patting the product properly to the face. Did it last the whole day? No but it did last longer than your typical foundation. And that says a lot considering the temperature here in the Philippines. This is definitely a good product for me.” - Ma.

9. Labiotte Shiraz Red Wine Lip Tint, P599
The most gorgeous, long-lasting shade of red, no reapplication needed. I don’t buy a lot of lip-coloring products, but this is the one I swear by most and will drop all my other lip-coloring products for. It’s as red as matte lipstick (without the dry look), and will stay on at least half the day. Most of all, even if the color gradually wears off during the day, your lips will still look bright and red. Basically, it first looks like matte red lipstick, then slowly changes to lip stain red. Perfect for those who want the classic red look but hate the hassle of reapplying throughout the day. Most of all, this bottle lasts a long time. It took me around 6 months to a year to finish up.” - Nicole

10. Simple Hydrating Light Moisturizer, P499
“I’ve tried several moisturizers in the past but nothing worked well for my sensitive skin until this! It hydrates my skin and leaves a soft texture after application! I’ve tried using this during hot and rainy weathers and the effect is consistent. It’s non-greasy and doesn’t make my skin oily after a long day. I’ve been using this for 3 months now and my bottle is almost out… can’t wait to purchase more!” - Alyssa
