1. Colourette Uno Lip Primer, now on sale at P399 (limited time only) “Coming across this product was actually the first time i learned about lip primers. I thought it would be just like any other balm but this turned out to be pretty great - it really made matte lipsticks glide on easier and prevented them from settling into the lip creases. Now it’s a staple before I apply my lippies, even tints.” – Frances

With the right amount, it creates a natural dewy coverage that easily blends my skin tone and blurs my pores, very light-weight and my skin looks glowing! Most of all, it is very affordable, highly-recommended for daily use, and locally made.” – Debbie

3. Skin Genie Apple Cider Vinegar Lotion, P450 “First of all, I love the smell of this lotion. it kinda smells like a bubblegum I ate when I was younger. My skin absorbs this really well and it doesn’t feel sticky at all so I use this during the day and at night. To the important bits, this lotion actually worked for my skin asthma! I’ve had skin asthma since I was in grade school and it became inactive as I grew older but the scars/spots were still there. I had them on my calves and arms and using this lotion showed results immediately. I’ve been using this for more than a week now and I can see that the spots have reduced and some of the scars lightened already. I also love this product because it contains spf 25 which I really need while walking the streets of Manila.” – Kristel

4. Sleek MakeUP Blusher (Rose Gold), P425 “This blush is absolutely beautiful! I just love the gold shimmers in it. The blush itself is also a beautiful rosy shade which is a universally flattering shade. This blush reminds me of Nars Orgasm and I’ve read that this is a dupe for it. This blush is super pigmented too! It’s affordable and high quality so I definitely recommend this.” – Tishy

5. Dearberry Starlit, now on sale at P272 (limited time only) “I got this yesterday. I bought it here hehe although I only used it once, I already love it! The color is so pretty. I got the one in CINDERELLA. It was so sparkly and dazzling! I love how it stayed long without migrating although it takes a bit of time for it to dry. Will use it more!” – Kimmy

6. Benton Snail Bee High Content Skin, P900 “I bought this because of all the raves I saw on youtube and reddit and man they’re all right. This is sort of a toner, moisturizer and a serum all in one. It is a clear watery serum that is mild and light on the skin. It is easily absorbed into the skin and has no scent in it. It makes my skin plump and smooth right after using it. I love that it has all natural and beneficial ingredients that helps restores, brightens and clears the skin.” – Mary Grace

For a cheap and affordable price, you will get beautifully-mattified nails that dries up in no time! I also love the fact that it’s very easy to apply and makes my nails’ polish last longer than what ordinary top coats would do” – Mika

8. NYX Professional MakeUp Concealer Palette, P620 “I have this in “light”. I use the peach color on my undereye circles and it really brightens that area and conceals the purple/blue. I use the dark brown to contour and it looks way more natural than powder contour does on me because it blends better. I use my fingers to blend the colors so that probably helps, too. I don’t reach for the other shades too much, but sometimes I’ll use the yellow underneath the contour if I need help blending it out. I’ve used the tan shades on top of my eyebrows to help clean up the lines I’ve made when filling them in. I’m really satisfied with this product.” – Alfren

9. Peripera Peri’s Ink The Velvet, now on sale at P430 (limited time only) “I have been looking for a really long-lasting lip tint, and Peripera is one of the best out there. I got the Dollish Beige Rose shade. Pros: > Highly pigmented. A little goes a long way. > Creamy texture that makes application very smooth. It also fills over any dry, cracked, chapped, or crusty areas that gives your lips a healthy-looking, smooth, velvety finish. > Very pleasant, fruity scent. No unpleasant taste. > Formula makes blending and lip gradients easy to achieve. Just watch out for stained fingers if you’re using it to blend your lips. > Very long lasting (6-8 hours for me) and doesn’t come off easily. You don’t need to constantly reapply it every after meal. You can even eat oily food and the color wouldn’t even fade that much. > Their shades complement Asian skin colors really well.” – Karissa

10. Be Organic Bath & Body Emu Skin Perfecting Cream, P395 “I give this a 5/5 rating. Perfect score eh? It’s love at first try! The moment I opened the tub and applied it on my face I said to myself that this will be a great alternative to my HG facial cream- the GNC Vitamin C Moisturizer. Both performs and [functions] well on the moisturizing and whitening department. So why I gave this a perfect score, because this is my first organic/natural face cream that didn’t gave me breakouts or allergies or whatsoever. Another thing that made me amazed with this product is that it didn’t [aggravate] the cystic pimples that’s starting to form on my chin due to my monthly period. I also believe that the ingredients infused with 100% emu.” – Alfren
