Php1,000 Challenge with Beauty MNL

Makeup shopping is therapeutic. Before, I’d spend more than an hour at the mall checking out makeup counters, doing lipstick swatches on my wrist, trying to figure out the next best shade to pick even if I just bought a new one days prior. For powder and foundation, I already have my staple picks from MAC (Pro Longwear Pressed Powder) and Revlon (Photo Ready Foundation) so that’s a bit easier. However, I feel a bit iffy with salesladies, especially at department stores, following you with every move and forcing you to buy stuff just because.

Thank heavens there’s Beauty MNL, my new go-to beauty destination, where my favorite brands are housed and you’ll get them right at your doorstep without having to wait long.

Beauty MNL is ready to cater to all the needs of every Filipina. From your most-liked drugstore brands to high end ones, they’ve got you covered! You can browse through their website to see their wide selection of skincare, makeup, and hair care products. I literally spent 3 hours scrolling through their albums for a Php1,000.00 challenge!

So how far can your Php1,000.00 go at Beauty MNL? Here’s my loot!

Shade: Natural Beige 
Price: Php199.00

Maybelline’s one of my favorite makeup brands since college! Their products are so affordable but you’ll get the nicest quality! Since I ran out of MAC Pro Longwear Pressed Powder, I decided to try this one out first to set my Ponds Flawless White BB Cream and Dream Velvet Foundation. Yup, I just unveiled my daily makeup routine! ;)

Shade: Nude Nuance 
Price: Php299.00

My usual lipstick shades are nudes and bold reds, you know that! But currently, I’m searching for the best brown lippies and I came across this one from Maybelline. Let’s see how it goes!

Shade: 03 Light Brown 
Price: Php235.00

Korean skincare and makeup products won’t fail you! I’m excited to try out this eyebrow pencil from Holika Holika. Arnie’s always going to be an advocate of pretty eyebrows! :p

Detail Oval Brush for Foundation 
Price: Php199.00

Queen Pia Wurtzbach released a makeup video and she shared that she applies her foundation with an oval brush. I immediately wrote that down on my notes because I knew I needed that! This one from Detail’s cheaper than other brands but I’m quite positive that this won’t fail me.

Price: Php70.00

I love nose strips, that’s it! Hahaha! My stay-in nights usually involve this, blogging, Spotify and a cup of tea. #trufax

Total: Php1,002.00! I only exceeded by two pesos, lol!

The best part? Beauty MNL is generous enough to give its shoppers a lot of freebies!

I got samples of TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner, and a full-sized St. Ives Facial Scrub. My heart is so happy!

Make sure to visit their website now and fulfill your beauty needs! And probably, their free gifts page would also entice you to purchase more!

Thank you for making me (and other Filipinas) so kilig, Beauty MNL! ♥
