My stress hormones have been acting up lately, making me feel under the weather. Indeed, every day isn't a good day, but I'm a firm believer in the notion that there is always something good in every day. I must be more than blessed to get the chance to choose some of BeautyMNL's wonders last week. I have talked about the shopping site in one of my blog posts before and I'm still amazed about their services especially on how they handle their customers. BeautyMNL, I believe, is very popular among Filipina makeup lovers, but if you still haven't heard of them yet, do yourself a favor and check them out. For my second visit in BeautyMNL, I chose three items from them, which I will be giving a mini review within this post.
The first item on my shopping cart is the Fit Me Concealer by Maybelline. I've been looking for this concealer in local malls and drugstores in our city, but unfortunately I couldn't find one. There was also one time when I asked for one in one of Maybelline's counter and they told me they're not selling it. like omg.. so I had to find it online. Luckily, BeautyMNL exists for makeup lovers like me who are looking for the same item.
Now how does the Fit Me Concealer by Maybelline works? I was actually expecting a lot from the product mainly because there has been so much rave about it. Some popular beauty magazines worldwide even include it in the list of their holy grail products. I've tried the product once, and I wasn't disappointed, but I wasn't very much cray about it either. I don't know why but I feel like it doesn't last longer than I expected. On the other hand, it did lighten up my dark under eye circles and what I liked about it the most is its blendability. It blends so easily to the skin and its very lightweight as well. I feel like I don't have anything under my eye while wearing the product, but it does the job.
I chose the one in the shade called medium, and I think its perfect for most Filipinas. It looks a bit dark, but when applied to the skin, it's actually lighter. And I just noticed, it does have similar scent to Maybelline foundations. It is a smell which is barely there, which is good especially for girls who hated scented beauty products. In a nutshell, its a good concealer for a price of 299php or more of less 3USD.
Another item on my cart is the Clarifying Witch Hazel Facial Mist by the Beauty Bakery. It was last year or two years ago when a friend of mine told me about facial mists. At that time I was quite cynical about facial mists partly because I do not know anything about the product. I've been wanting to try one too, but then got caught up with so many things and forgot about the whole thing. When I saw the facial mist created by the Beauty Baker on the list of BeautyMNL's bestsellers, I didn't think twice about getting one for myself.
Created using some of the finest natural ingredients for beauty products to date, Beauty Bakery’s Clarifying Witch Hazel Facial Mist, is now one of my beauty must-haves. There's nothing about it that I didn't like. It smells heavenly and it made my face feel hydrated all day. Some people even noticed how moisturized my face looks when I started using the product. Somebody once told me, I looked blooming lol would like to tell her, girl, it's just my facial mist working lol! If you want to feel refreshed all day amidst the traffic or the office drama in your work, get one bottle of goodness from Beauty Bakery and let it do its job.
I am sporting long locks and I do not have plans in trimming it. I'm sentimental lol. Kidding aside, I do take a bath daily but I do not shampoo my hair every day. Ever since I've known some of the reasons why I don't have to, I started washing my hair once every other day. And how do I beat the tropical weather of the Philippines from making my hair sticky? My answer to that is a dry shampoo. My favorite right now is the Orange and Vanilla Dry Shampoo by Made by David Organics. I love that it made my hair shiny while giving it volume. Aside from that, it surprisingly made my hair feel softer. For a small amount of 250php, you'll get a bouncier hair with just a small amount of the product.
One of my mantras for this year is to strive harder to seek beauty whenever I find myself in a difficult situation. I'd like to embody such idea and radiate its goodness in the best way that I can. For that reason, I'm sharing to you one of my most beloved secret. chos! Here's where I gained some ideas about what makeup products should I buy next and which ones should I avoid. Behold, Bloom Magazine by BeautyMNL!
Bloom Magazine delivers fresh news daily bout beauty, makeup, hair care, budget buys and my favorite Review by you section where you can read reviews from makeup lovers. I actually gained some insights from reading a lot of the reviews published by the magazine, including a guide on how I can fully maximize their website.
If there's something from the products that I've mentioned above, or if you want to try them all as well, today is the best day for you to splurge because BeautyMNL is having a 1php shipping promo which is valid only until tomorrow! And yes,they do ship nationwide, so no worries if you are living somewhere outside Metro Manila.
