My makeup kit is a mix of drugstore and department store makeup brands. I believe that there are some cases when splurging can be justified, while there are some instances when it’s not necessary.
Almost two years ago, I moved to Pampanga and to tell you quite frankly, as much as I love this new found freedom, things are tougher than how it initially looks. Bills, cooking, cleaning the house… Yep, independent people do those things. But aside from that, there’s another thing that I needed to adjust to… My beauty necessities! Where do I buy, where can I find them here?
Just like what I’ve told you before, my makeup kit is a mix of brands both local and international. There’s not much problem if I’d be just looking for local brands like Ever Bilena or HBC and even usual international drugstore brands like Maybelline, ELF, or Revlon; but what about the department store brands? I have a few which are already a staple in my makeup kit.
And then I was introduced to BeautyMNL.com. They invited me to check and try out their website. Basically they have makeup reviews there and beauty tips; but they don’t just leave you hanging like… “Where do I get that beautiful shade of lipstick?” If you liked it, you can also order it in their website! And, yes, they carry the brands you need but you don’t usually find in your local malls.
WHAT A RELIEF!
And so I browsed through their website and thought about what I need and here’s what I got:
Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Color in L’Exuberante; Dolly Wink Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner II in Deep Black; and some freebies: Nivea Exfoliating Wipes and Lancome Nouveau Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate
It was quite easy browsing through the website. They’ve sorted things out based on product description or if you prefer a specific brand, you can also have that option. And if you’re thinking that you need a credit card to pay for your purchases, worry not. They also offer a COD option for orders below PHP 5,000.00 within Metro Manila. Isn’t that such a relief? That was actually one of my concerns before I had my credit card. I really REALLY wanted to buy some things online but they all used to require a credit card. Thank God BeautyMNL.com took that into consideration, right?
I actually placed my order during the APEC week and was expecting that my order would be delivered already a week after; but lo and behold! It arrived Friday at my parents place in Manila and was informed about it because the delivery guy called me up while I was on my way there. I just asked him to leave the package to my mom and that was it. Ordered arrived and customer is very satisfied.
I think I would frequently purchase from them since they have almost all my staple beauty products and I need not to go out of the house just to buy them. Since traffic in Manila isn’t very desirable, this is just so convenient, yes?
