Top 10 Local Makeup Products that Stood Out in 2018

If my observation’s correct, 2018 marks the time when local brands stepped up their makeup game in terms of formula, packaging, and variety. A bunch of new brands came out and most of them were by celebrities; while the already existing brands finally started keeping up with the current trend.

However, not every product released created a spark. Some were hot, others flopped. So for today’s post, I’m sharing with you my Top 10 local makeup products that stood out in 2018. I based my list on my personal experience and the people’s reception.

So here it goes…

Do NOT purchase this Glam Pouch #sorrynotsorry

Last time I availed of a subscription box was back in 2016. It was also around Christmas season when promos were too tempting to ignore. Click here to know why I never subscribed to them again (like EVER).

A few months ago, a new shop on Instagram was launched. They offer glam pouches that contain 4-5 beauty items, which you can purchase once or every month. Their IG posts are really enticing as most of them show Sunnies Face Fluffmattes, which are undoubtedly the hottest lippies in the country.

They even formed a beauty community on Facebook where members can share or ask anything that’s beauty related. They also created their own group of ambassadors who were supposed to receive pouches from them to promote them on social media. They seemed really promising, the people behind them seemed nice, but what pulled my trigger is what I found in my pouch. I could tolerate the delay, though that alone was already disappointing.

Still have no idea what it is? Keep on reading.

My 2018 in Photos

2018 is the year that made me feel like living a double life. It indeed has been bittersweet, a beautiful fck up, a fcked up beauty. It was a scary, yet fun, rollercoaster ride.

As I was slowly going up, I dreaded for the top because I knew that was where my speedy fall would start. The fall seemed endless, fear was taking over me. Then it steadied, slowed down, then gradually went up again.

I thank God that in every descent, He still picked me up and let me stand again. So instead of looking back on those shitty times, I’ll go back and count my blessings. Here’s my 2018 in photos:

Achieve pimple-free skin with NATURE SKIN SECRETS The Bubbly Carbonated AHA Oxygen Mask

Hello, everyone! Welcome to Pinoy Finds Fridays and for today, I’ll be featuring a product from one of my trusted local skin care brands — NATURE SKIN SECRETS.

As you may already know, Nature Skin Secrets is owned by Hot Babe herself, Ms. Maui Taylor. She’s been so nice and generous to me that she has, once again, shared a couple of her products, for me to try and review. So far, all the products that I’ve tried have had positive results, which is why the brand has quickly won my heart — aside from the fact that the person behind it is so humble and wonderful. ❀
