A new makeup store is set to pump up the beauty world in Cebu. Set to be a new playground for makeup artists and beauty enthusiasts, Perfect Secret's grand opening took place last week. The cosmetics store which showcases makeup and perfumes opened its door at the Upper Ground floor (between Mango and Forever21) of SM Seaside Cebu.
With the city's fast-paced development in so many areas, it's not surprising why Perfect Secret which has branches around the world chose to launch their first Philippine branch in Cebu. Along with its good array of products, the store aims to cater to their Cebuano clients and soon open another branch in Manila.
Unlike any other beauty stores, Perfect Secret mainly sells beauty products from W7 Makeup, a UK-based cosmetics company and Delia Cosmetics which hails from Poland. If you are into makeup and haven't tried using any of those products, you no longer have to worry about buying them online. Instead, you just have to visit Perfect Secret.
Perfect Secret sells three variants of mascaras from Delia Cosmetics which were created to suit the different wants and needs of people when it comes to eyelashes. I got the one in red which is intended to curl-up the lashes, but I also feel that I need the lash lengthening one as well.
Some W7 products sold in Perfect Secret are different types of palettes which are great for makeup artists. For instance, they do have the Lip Explosion Lip COlour Palette which has lippies from satin to shimmer finish. The last color on the rights side of the palette (as seen on the photo above) actually reminds me of Kylie Jenner's lip color. On the other hand, the Big Bold Blushers palette has corals and pink colored blushes.
Here's a product from the W7 Cosmetics which made me curious. I find it controversial because it's not every day that you see a Selfie powder right? lol I mean, I don't even know what it does at first, but then by asking questions to the Perfect Secret staff, I found out that the powder, which by the way is in pale blue color, is a mattifying and oil-control powder.
By the looks and swatches of W7 Cosmetics products, some of them can be a very good dupe for high-end makeup products like MAC. Just look at that eye shadow palette above!
Media personnel from Cebu and Ms. Gabriele Raine Baljak who is Miss Cebu 2016, graced the opening of Perfect Secret. Raine is super fun to have a conversation with. We talked about what's our favorite drugstore and high-end beauty products including her favorite makeup brand which is Maybelline.
My curiosity led me to ask the friendly and soft-spoken beauty queen if she plans to join bigger beauty pageants in the near future. She gave me with a positive response, but she also disclosed that she is not in a hurry. I really hope she wins Binibining Pilipinas and beauty pageants outside the Philippines because I believe that Raine embodies the heart of a true Cebuana. :)
A live makeup show took place during the store's grand opening wherein Cebu-based makeup artist Ms. Denise Bassler showed us how to create a light and a more dramatic makeup look using the products offered in the Perfect Secret. Denise also shared some of her most-prized techniques on how to achieve a flawless makeup look.
The price range of their makeup products is not less than 500php and not more than 1,500php, If you want to experiment on your fragrances, you can also check out some of their perfumes. Perfect Secret is a place not just for MUAs, but also for beauty junkies who want to fill their makeup collection. It's a place full of wonder that shouldn't be a secret. :)
Don't forget to drop by and shop their store in SM Seaside Cebu and follow their social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram.
