My BeautyMNL Experience

yaya dub makeup
 How's your long weekend going so far? As for me, I am primarily stuck at home. Thanks to my Fiance who is always there for me. As usual, we went mall hopping, then we had a relaxing massage yesterday and stuff our tummies (just because weekends are cheat days). I know it is nothing special because most of my friends are either spending it out of the country or out of town. Oh Sige na kayo na!!! Wit lang kayo! MaghohoneymoonS ako soon! haha This is my pampalubag loob whenever I see people posting their #wanderlust posts on IG and FB. Inggitera lang ang peg ko. Bakit ba? Despite staying at home and doing routinary weekend activities this long weekend, something really made it extra special. This post is entirely dedicated to that. I am so excited to share with you my BeautyMNL haul. As you all know, it is not very often that I get to buy high end makeup. Thus,  I can't be any happier when BeautyMNL asked me to try out their site.

BeautyMNL is a one stop online beauty destination which offers Makeup, Skincare, Everyday essentials  and even Accessories. This site is truly a heaven for beauty enthusiasts and heaven sent for busy men and women.Why? Imagine this - stay at home moms or busy career women can just click and shop online during their breaktime without the hassle of going out of the house or even going out during breaktime. This saves time, gas and etc. In short, pak na pak siya sa mga busy busyhan na tao tulad ko. 

How was my first experience with BeautyMNL (first kasi alam kong may susunod pa!!!!)
I first registered/signed up in their site which took me a few minutes. I browsed through their website which took me days!!! hahaha Gusto ko kasi bilhin lahat kung pwede lang. Then, I checked out my order and the next day -- my orders arrived. My shopping experience was smooth and hassle free. I really want to commend their delivery personnel who was very polite and friendly. He called me because our house address has a similar address to another house which is a few blocks away from us (My father told me that our street was divided to old and new streeets, hence the confusion to kuya delivery). He called me and confirmed my exact address. This is a plus point because I was too scared that the items might get lost.  He even told me, "Mam ako na po ang tatawag sa inyo para di po sayang sa load niyo." Eh ako naman si makulit, Ako pa rin ang tumawag ng paulit ulit. Another plus point for BeautyMNL is an option for further instructions on delivery etc. upon check out and even the persons who may receive your order may be named for security purposes. 

The package came in very good condition and I am excited to share with all of you my haul from BeautyMNL. 

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze - Php 2,650 
Just a heads up, I am not a highlighter person. I bought the Balm MaryLou Manizer because I needed a good highlighter for my wedding. However, a few days ago I saw the wedding makeup tutorial of Alexandrea Garza on youtube. I got really curious on this product because she used it. I swatched this when I had the chance to drop by at Bobbi Brown and I was blown away. Glow from within lang ang peg niya!!! More on this product soon. And yes, gagamitin ko siya sa wedding ko. 
Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder - Php1650
I have seen a lot of Beauty Gurus rave about this product and I decided to give it a try. Guess what?? I LOVE IT!!!! Ito na na talaga!! I will be using this on my wedding day instead. I am choosing this over my favorite Palgantong Theatrical Powder (this is also available in BeautyMNL).

 Nars Creamy Concealer - Php 1550
Finally! After months of lemming for this product, I finally got hold of it. I got it in the shade Ginger which is a perfect match for my NC30 skin tone. 
City Color Contour Effects 2 - Php 450
Please don't mind the finger print/marks on the contour and bronzer powder, I got too excited to swatch this baby before I finally had the chance to take decent photos of this product. This Contour kit is huge. Being an avid fan of contouring and bronzing, I am excited to give this a try. 

I am very happy with my haul and I can't stop playing with my new makeup especially the Bobbi Bronw Shimmerbrick in Bronzer. I never thought I would be this obssessed with a highlighter. Is it better than the Marylou Manizer?? My answer will be posted on another post. Overall, I love BeautyMNL!!! The shopping experience was a breeze. It was hassle and stress free. They also have a good variety of payment methods - paypal/credit card, bank transaction and even through cash on delivery. Cash on delivery is an option I have been wishing for online shops to have. I also love the fact that they offer wide range of products both from the high end shelves to the affordable drugstore finds.

  1. Ugghh that Nars concealer!!!!!! <3

  2. The City Color contour palette is love! Super sulit sya for the price, although the highlighter, not so much. I have the exact palette and it's too white, halata masyado. Let me know how you made it work for you!

    1. Hi Anne!! not a fan of highlighters din but so far love ko bronzer ni city color :)

  3. Wow, the City Color palette is only P450?? The contour color looks reddish in the photo, though. I hope it's not reddish in person.

    1. Not reddish at all.. :) currently loving it Aviva!!! :)

  4. I'm an avid fan of online shopping, minsan nagugulat nalang si hubby may bago na kong make up lols. Inggit mode din ako kapag may mga friend ako na nakakapagtravel, in my case kasi we have a 7 month old baby kaya nawawala din yung inggit knowing na in a year or two makakatravel din ulit kaming whole family.

    Will definitely try the City Color Contour Effect, for its price pwedeng pwede na for beginner like me.

    1. In fair ha maganda si City Color at long lasting. Will do a review on this.. medyo powdery lang nga.. pero for 450 bakit ako magjijinarte eh 3 in 1 na diba? hehe :)

  5. That is an extremely smart written article. I will be sure to bookmark it and return to learn extra of your useful information. Thank you for the post. I will certainly return.

  6. Love this makeups,wish i could buy them all.. online shopping is definitely fun!

  7. How effective is the setting powder? As in no oiling talaga? I'm currently using the BYS micro HD finishing powder and it works but I'm not a fan of the powdery finish na parang too made up.

    1. Hi Alex.YAy!! Thank you for visiting my blog hehe.. Anyways, for keeping oiliness at bay I really cannot attest since I have dry skin. So, I barely oil up however, this loose powder is so smooth and velety as in yung face ko looks smooth and polished hindi matte flat. Also lightweight siya as in parang wala. For oiliness, you might want to try Ellana HD finishing powder/primer. the white powder? grabe that zaps oilines like magic!! :)


Thank you so much for visiting my blog..
i really appreciate your comments.
